The Donigan Turkey
December brings back memories of
my early cares and fatigues in West
Moscow and trouble that had more
than one key, but thru the haunts of
care the smile remains in my life
when I think of the Donigan turkey.
'Twas Christmas week the last year
A. P. Donigan was postmaster in
Bingham. There had been no snow.
The clear air and sunlight had given
Moscow hills a warm breast. The
hens and turkeys were in the door
yard. The 35 pound gobbler, one of
the proudest birds in the state was
strutting by their side. My dog gave
me warning that some one was ap
proaching. Hastily taking off my
apron I opened the door and my eyes
were gladdened by the sight of Doni
gan admiring my flock. He wanted a
small spring turkey, but all my spring
turkeys were engaged and the smal
lest one weighted 12 pounds. Pick
ing up an August turkey I held it up
to him saying "this one I'll call eight
pounds, 40c a pound.” He thought
perhaps I better weigh it. Wishing
to please him, the turkey weighed 8Vj
pounds. I smiled and whispered, 1
thought so too. Taking a string
from his pocket he tied the turkey's
legs, put her in the back of the wagon
and drove off. It was about noon
when I beheld Donigan coming ovet
the hill again. I didn’t stop to doll
up, I was a “Johnny on the spot" in
terested in all his troubles, when he
told me the string had broken and the
turkey had gpt away. He had beer
hunting thru Lapoint’s swamp foi
three hours. He guessed he had los'
her all right for one of the Cates girl!
told him she hadn’t see it, but wishes
she could set her eyes on it. I sole
Him another one and had forgotten al
about it when .the door opened an<
some one-stood there with a turkei
'ln;'4hls arms." “Don’t want to buy i
\ turkey do you.” “No I guess not, go
about all I can do now, $75.00 wortl
, got to be in Bingham by 'tomorrov
i noon.’’ “Who’s going to have them?
j Alton Carl, Irving Moore, Preble &
; Hebinson, two boxes to Skowhegai
market and—why don’t you keep he
yourself”—“only one and my wif
don’t want to bother." What do yoi
ask for her $1.50. In that moment
saw my way clear, ,1s she poor? H<
I passed her to me and I lifted her u]
and down several times and guessei
she weighed about 6%, not as heav:
as mine. I handed him the $1.50 am
he went home smiling.
A few weeks previous to this Chas
O. Small of Madjson had shown nr
a great courtesy and wouldn’t acem>
anything for it. Here was my chanct
II would send him that turkey, o
: course it was not as large as mine
but I could fill up the box with bii
red apples and celery and the though
I pleased me and all through the loni
night I worked with a cheery heart
The next day at 12 o’clock my prett;
flock was in Bingham village. Soot
i after Christmas I received a beautifu
| letter from Mr, and Mrs. Small saylni
I it was a fljw bird and how much the:
appreciated- itj how wonderful it wa
that I shfltald*remember the courtesy
The thnflWwip.me to me—now I cai
1 re>lt'sffcnf JraUlle and pay seme of m:
! dpbts. JtK' first debt I thought o
was $l.SC4^-0Wbd for threshing.
Uirove over to pay him but he wa
: away from .home that day so I hand
! ed his wlfb« the money saying "tel
i him I thank him and am sorry h<
! had to wait 'so long.” His wifi
! smiled and handed me back thi
I money saying “you paid me that bii
jthe day he took the turkey over—tha
j was yoUf turkey, the one that go
; away from Donigan.” I don’e re
member laughing for I didn't see thi
Joke. But all the way home I wa
whispering to myself $75.00 for tur
keys, 40c a lb. Sold Bobby 2, pah
Donigan $1.50, sold Preble and Rob
inson 15 lbs. that go away, sent 1!
to Irving Moore by express at 40c ;
dozen, bought *one for the sum o
$1.60; sent it to Weymouth’s marke
in Skowhegari—let's see 75c—$75.0i
that weighed $1.50 a lb., less that
mine at 40c a piece,
Some one up to Headwater told thi
story to my husband and when hi
came home he wanted to knew if
had remembered to pay Donigan fo
the turkey. Sincere and honest
answered him I had. but I guess hi
better send it to Esq. Small for
couldn’t do the sum.
