On a certain raro occasion,
When she had some friends at tea,
Her last cherry plo was missing.
And chagrined and sad was she.
She had made a plo and placed It
High upon a pantry shelf,
Out somo one had found the pastry
And had freely helped himself.
As regards the guilty person,
She was plunged In deepest doubt,
Yi't one simple, plain Inquiry
Was the means ot finding out.
To her son she put the Question:
"How about that cherry plot"
"Mother, dear," said Oeorgc, "I ato It
