Grandpap talks with Abner about going in with Cedric and his tent that he pitched out front. He wants to make some money by setting up a fortune telling racket. Will his idea that he studied up from a library book work? It will if Abner changes his name to John, nd becomes 14 years old. Huh?
Lum isn’t so confused and drawn to the fortune telling mess as Abner, and has his own news to tell. Squire joins him to tell about the progress with the building contractor. As the contractor, Gregory WW Dobbs is told about, grandpap warns against doing any business dealings. Will Lum and Abner listen to him?
Can the low rates that will be charged be for real? Grandpap has been lured outside for a talk with Squire, but when grandpap enters again, he reports being paid hush money from Squire. I think our heros ought to start rethinking their decision, and fast.
