You wrote that this is in Chapter 10.  It is actually in Chapter 11.  You can find it there.

Jem and Scout are walking down the street when Mrs. Dubose, as usual, is criticizing them.  She talks bad about their whole family.  What really gets Jem is that Mrs. Dubose says that their dad is working for the black people.

After this, Jem and Scout go to the store and buy their toys.  Scout's is a baton.  On the way back, Jem takes the baton from Scout and uses it to destroy all of Mrs. Dubose's camellia bushes.
