Molly Visits Gobble Gobble
Once upon a time a nice wax doll by
tbe name o f Molly went to the country
with her mamma.
They were visiting a lovely big farm.
S> one morning Molly got up very ear­
ly and went out in tbe barnyard to see
a great big turkey by the name o f
Gobble Gobble.
Now, Gobble Gobble was getting the
best o f care, for be was the bird that
had been picked ont for tbe Thanks­
giving dinner. O f course to help eat
this good dinner was why Molly and
her mamma bad gone to tbe farm.
"H ello. Gobble, Gobble,” said Molly,
going straight up to the big turkey.
"Good morning. W ax Doll," Gobble
Gobble answered, spreading bis broad
wings and making his neck red.
Then he did the strangest thing. He
scratched bis wings along In the dirt
and made a quick circle right around
Molly, for she wore a beautiful red
dress, you see. and turkeys do not like
anything red. They seem to want
Lotbing around as red as their own
When he kept coming nearer and
uearer Molly got quite frightened, but
when Gobble Gobble came right at her
she turned and ran like anything. Gob-
tie Gobble chased her till at last she
Hid to run right up on to a big wood
pile. Here she sat. throwing sticks o f
wood at Gobble Gobble till her mamma
came and cuased him away and took
