Eighty years ago in Edinburgh,
Scotland, 'it .was the custom, for. a
man to walk through the poorer
portion of the town every day at
noon, bearing a large shin-bone of
beef. His-erv was. "Three stirs and
a wallop for a bawbee!'' (A bawbee
is a" halfpennv.) All the house
wives had their vegetables stewing
for the family soup and gladly paid
their bawbeps for the privilege of
three stirs and a wallop (the final
. flourish) with the bone, which was
'supposed to impart a fine meat
flavor to the stew.
