THE COBBLER AND THE TURKEY

A COBBLER once paid a visit to a farmer. The turkey in the farmyard began to [124] cackle. The cobbler snatched a stick and ran towards the fowl.

"What are you going to the turkey for?" said the farmer.

"Why," said the man, "the silly fowl hath no manners. I stand here and it says 'Gobble, gobble, gobble.' I mean to teach it a lesson!"

"Ah!" said the farmer?" how many there are that would not be called by their right names!"
