Turkeys Delay Train

Yesterday afternoon train No. 12 was 45 minutes late and it was all caused by turkeys. Hundreds are loaded on every train and the dispatch with which they are being shipped is evident when it is said that nearly all are being carried by express. Every day trainloads of them from the west pass through this city on their way to eastern markets, where it seems that the people will never get enough turkey.
