HOW MANY PIPS IN A PUMPKIN?

The Lynn Advertiser of 5th February 1909 records that licensee
Thomas George Mann was summoned before the Magistrates
for allowing a guessing competition for prizes.
Inspector Thompson informed the court that shortly before Christmas the defendant had been asked by a customer if he would arrange a competition.
Having a pumpkin in the house, he had arranged for prizes to be given for those nearest to guessing the total number of seeds within.
Three prizes consisted of either four gallons of beer, two bottles of gin or twelve cigars.
Mr Mann had cut the pumpkin in the kitchen and told those in attendance who had won the prizes.
He claimed to be unaware that his actions were in the wrong.
The Chairman asked the Inspector if such events `had been going on long'.
The policeman had not heard of such activities before.
Mr Mann was fined 2s 6d with 11s 6d costs.

Thanks to Stan Langley for finding details of this heinous crime.
