Christmas Word Puzzle from 1911
The following puzzle is adapted from one that appeared in the Washington
Herald, December 26, 1911. I’ve removed many candies from the original
— candies unfamiliar now, a century later — and made minor changes
to the clues. The original puzzle is
What kind of Christmas candy will be purchased by —
(1) the lover?
(2) the coiner?
(3) the minister?
(4) the dentist?
(5) the boxer?
(6) the dairymaid?
(7) the cranberry picker?
(8) the sailer?
(9) the stonemason?
(10) the polygamist?
