I had forgotten about Blue Bell Polka.  It's a good one and among a family of similar-sounding tunes.

Foster wrote one, "Holiday Schottische" (1853), then there's "Detroit Schottische" (1854).  That one is still played today by some fiddlers, though they condense it down to two parts, play it faster and call it "Flop-eared Mule"
