|Coal oil for the croup
|Then I did look looks from the floor to the window. I thought I better clean the window too while I was fixing things. Just when I started to put bon ami on the window, I did look out to see what I could see. I saw
Agamemnon Menelaus Dindon
going in a slow walk by. He was giving his neck a stretch-out. He gave it another one, and when he made a swallow his throat did look
. And croup does always have needs of being fixed up. So I laid down the bon ami, and I went and I did pour a whole lot of
down the throat of Agamemnon Menelaus Dindon. That was to make his croup go away. Now he will be feeling well feels real soon. He didn't want to take the coal-oil. I had to hold him tight. Some turkey gobblers can kick most hard.
