about the house by himself.
Hello, "Old Riddle," you and
"Uncle Tom" were sadly mis
taken when you said I thought
it was my brotler you were
talking about. You said it was
my papa who went visiting
with me, and it surely would
have been kind if it had been
him. Ho! ho! I want some of
the writers to tell me how old a.
girl has to be before she is calhed
an old maid. I don't blame a
young man for wan ting a s4a
16-year-old ti* for his wit1e; a
if she could not bake his hce
cake to suit he could teaci hr
how. I think it would be a
sorry miani that would sek an
old woman to taike care of him,
for he might know he would
have the corn cake to bake.
"Old Riddle," you saidl ihe shoe
(lid not fit you about being .ld.
I know it don't fit. me ab).mt
coo)king he corn Clke. I 1now
I (canl bake be:ns and boil
potatoes. I want you and
"Uncle Tom" to come to see me
we will see who can best bake
beans. PAPA'sG nui..
