Friday, March 27, 1925 THE MONROE MONITOR--Monroe, Washington Page Three Common Phrase Once Had Distinct Meaning In olden thnes in many parts of England, particularly during the feu- dal period, the 1)oor living on a lord's manor or estate were allowed to go into the manor woods or forest with a hook and crook to get wood for fuel. Wtmt they ct)uld reach they might pull down with their crook. This was a precarious way of procuring fuel, hut the privilege was eagerly sought. Boundary stones, beyond which the "hook and crook folk" might not pqss, were to be seen of late years in some ohl forests. However. this cuslOll] does not satisfy the present use of the phrase, "hook and crook," wi/ich does not simply ,nenn in n preearlons manner, but at all hazards, ill or well. The custom referred t- is descrlb*,l in the Bodmln Register of 1525, in which is this statement: "Dynmure Wood was ever open and Pi)lllilll)l| to the intlahitants of Bodmin to bear :wny upon their backs a burden of lop. crop, hook, crook and bag wood."
