Quandary Resolution 4888
swoopstake, sexton, nonpareil, zither
This new church eschewed all tradition and was quite opportunistic in its acquisitions; in place of bells to ring, they bought a zither swoopstake for the poor sexton to pluck in the used but modern belfry, in spite of the fact that he got the job because he was a bell-ringer and grave-digger nonpareil.
