Clothes Line

Fulton Journal: August 18, 1893

A predatory cow made a raid on a clothes line in the First Ward yesterday, and before she was detected had succeeded in eating two frilled skirts, three lace trimmed chemiwhatyoucallems, and several pairs of stockings. As the cow stumbled down an embankment an exceedingly angry woman appeared at the top, waving a broom vociferously, and with an expression of countenance which said, in language as plain as words could express it, "What wouldn't I give if I could cuss like a man."
