Note: In "Bob-A-Needle" the loser has to stand in the middle and "pay the pawn," i.e., do different stunts -- put his hand on his head, hop like a frog, "wade through the green valley," sing a song, etc. [The game] "Wade through the green valley" is wonderful. You ask the players if they like something, like apples, candy, and so on, and if they like it, they step forward. But the other "fees" are quick. Bessie explains how to play ''Oh Green Fields, Roxie."
