Christmas Escape

From the Skidmore Standard, December 28, 1900:

There was one gobbler in Skidmore that wasn’t gobbled on Christmas Day, and so far as his owner knows, he is still able to fly high and gobble proudly.  He occupied the roost of honor in A. H. Garnett’s coop the night before Christmas but escaped the next morning when Mr. Garnett attempted to lay hands on him.  At sometime during the day he perched himself on nearly every housetop in town but never once trusted himself on earth again, so he is still a free turkey.
