doctor said she would not recover. In trying to sort out their affairs,
the little old man took down the shoe box and took it to his wife's bedside.
She agreed that it was time that he should know what was in the box.

crocheted dolls and a stack of money totalling $95,000.
He asked her about the contents. 'When
we were to be married,' she said, ' my grandmother told me the secret of a
happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with
you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll.' The little old man was
