Christine Seelye-King provided the definition for mustard from Dictionary dot com. Thank you so much. It is interesting but surprised we don't have it documented before O'Henry. What I like most of the definition is:   

> The cut probably refers to harvesting the plant, so if one cannot cut the mustard, one cannot supply what is best.
When thinking of mundane jobs it is a delightful surprise to find a boss 
twisting your place into something important and wanting to reap the 
best from you, cheering you on to cut the mustard.
