Helen and Paul were eating out at an expensive restaurant one evening. On the
table opposite them sat an old lady who was eating alone. Paul noticed that the
lady was looking over at him and smiling sadly.
'Do you know her?' he asked his wife.
'No, I don't recognise her, but she looks as if she knows you.'
Paul and Helen carried on eating their meal, but the next time Paul looked in
that direction, the woman was still looking at him. She looked lonely. After a
while he decided to go over and say hello to her because she looked as though
she wanted someone to talk to.
'Hi, there!' he said, 'Are you enjoying your meal?'
'Oh, yes,' she replied, 'And please excuse me for staring at you but you look
exactly like my son. He has gone to live in Australia. That's why I was feeling
a bit sad. I always used to eat in here with him.'
'I'm sorry to hear that.' replied Paul. ' It sounds as if you miss him a
'Oh, I do!' answered the old lady. ' Can I ask you a favour? When I'm leaving
the restaurant could you call out 'Goodbye, mum!' to me? It would make me so
'Yes, of course!' agreed Paul. ' No trouble at all!'
So he went back to his own table and continued his meal. A few minutes later, as
the old lady was leaving the restaurant, he called out 'Goodbye, mum!' and she
waved happily back at him.
When Paul called for his bill, he noticed that the bill was double what it was
normally and it included a lot of food an expensive bottle of wine which they
hadn't ordered. He called the waiter over to the table to sort out the problem.
'Excuse me, but there seems to be some mistake with the bill. It looks as if
you've given us the wrong one.'
'No, sir.' replied the waiter, 'No mistake. Your mother said you'd pay for her.'

2. What does Huck say you should do with the half of the bean that hasn’t got
blood on it?
3. What time should you take your dead cat to the graveyard in order to remove

5. Which expression is used in the text to mean ‘to bewitch’ someone?
Now read the text and answer the questions.
That’s a stupid way to talk about trying to cure
warts with spunk-water! That’s not going to do any good. You’ve got to go all by
yourself, to the middle of the forest, where you know there's a spunk-water tree
stump, and just at midnight you get close to the stump and put your hand in and
say: 'Barley-corn, barley-corn, injun-meal shorts, Spunk-water, spunk-water,
swallow these warts,' and then walk away quickly, eleven steps, with your eyes
shut, and then turn around three times and walk home without speaking to
anybody. Because if you speak it doesn’t work."
"Well, that sounds like a good way, but that’s not what Bob Tanner did."
"No way, I’m sure he didn’t because he's the wartiest boy in this town and he
wouldn't have a single wart on him if he knew how to use spunk-water. I've taken
thousands of warts off of my hands that way.
Huck. I play with frogs so much that I've always got so many warts. Sometimes I
take them off with a bean."
"Yes, beans are good. I've done that."
"Have you? How do you do it?"
"You take the bean and split it, and then cut the wart so as to get some blood,
and then you put the blood on one piece of the bean and then dig a hole and bury
it about midnight at the crossroads in the moonlight, and then you burn the rest
of the bean. The piece that's got the blood on it will keep
pulling and pulling, trying to get the other piece to it, and so that helps the
blood to draw the wart, and pretty soon off she comes."
"Yes, that's it, Huck. That's it! Though, when you're burying it if you say
'Down bean; off wart. Come no more to bother me!' it's better. That's the way
Joe Harper does it, and he's been almost everywhere. But how do you cure them
with dead cats?"
"Well, you take your cat and go to the graveyard about midnight when somebody
that was wicked has been buried. When it's midnight a devil will come, or maybe
two or three, but you can't see them, you can only hear something like the wind,
or maybe hear them talk, and when they're taking that man away, you throw your
cat after them and say, 'Devil follow corpse, cat follow devil, warts follow
cat, I'm done with you!' That'll get rid of ANY wart."
"Sounds right. Have you ever tried it, Huck?"
"No, but old Mother Hopkins told me."
"Well, I reckon it's true, then, because they say she's a witch."
"Come on, Tom, I KNOW she is. She cast a spell on pap. Pap himself told me. He
came along one day, and he saw she was casting a spell on him, so he picked up a
rock, and if she hadn't moved, he'd have hit her. Well, that same night he fell
off a roof where he was sleeping drunk and broke his arm."
"Why, that's awful. How did he know she was casting a spell on him?"
"Pap says it’s easy. When they keep looking at you for a long time, they're
casting a spell on you.
Especially if they mumble, because when they mumble they're saying the Lord's
