The Republic.
Nineteen hundred geese were in a flock at Cape Girardeau the other day.  They did not fly east, or west, or over the cuckoo’s nest, but walked from Millerville to Cape Girardeau, 25 miles, in two days.  From the cape they were shipped east to New York.  Much poultry is shipped from Cape Girardeau, but that river city never had a larger convention of quacks than when nineteen hundred geese paraded her streets.
