TRICK OR TREAT.

NOT ALWAYS MILL BUT RATHER THE STREET THE PERSON LIVES ON. THIS IS
SUPPOSED TO BE A CLUE TO THEIR IDENTITY.

JUMP-ROPE RHYME

SHALL I TELL YOU A STORY
ABOUT JACK AND HIS GLORY?
SHALL I BEGIN IT?
THAT'S ALL THAT'S IN IT.

SHALL I TELL YOU ANOTHER
ABOUT JACK AND HIS BROTHER?
SHALL I BEGIN IT?
THAT'S ALL THAT'S IN IT.

Submitter comment: THIS IS RECITED IN TWO PARTS AS SHOWN BY THE BREAK I PUT IN BETWEEN.

AT THE END OF IT. THE SECOND JUMPER DOES THE SAME THING FOR THE
SECOND PART.
