A Hen Catching Ford
Wallace Peters drove to town Tuesday, parked
his car along the curbing and went into the store to do his trading.

got there but he supposed that he had run over her along the road
and in some way the hen was thrown up by the wheel and lodged under
the hood. The car was a Ford, of course, and therefore this freak
