In chapter 14, when Huck and Jim are talking about King Solomon, Huck tells Jim that King Solomon "had about a million wives." Jim says he doesn't believe, then, that Solomon was "de wises' man dat ever live" because only a fool would choose to live with the "blimblammin' all de time." Jim says that a wise man would build a "biler-factry" instead, because it could be shut down when he wanted to rest.
Moreover, Jim sees no logic or reason in King Solomon's proposed solution to the two women fighting over a newborn, to divide the newborn with a sword, not understanding that the true mother would never allow that to happen to her son and would give up the baby to the other woman. Jim thinks that if the king had so many wives and children he would not properly value a child's life and would have no problem splitting it in half.
