How else can you account for the Chatham Record‘s decision to run as newsworthy the idle yarn-spinning of a few local old-timers? And what happened to Mr. Boon’s chicken and snake story? Maybe the editor felt that the contemporaneous readers of this 1911 edition had heard it so many times already, sparing them yet another retelling would be a kindness. It leaves kind of a gap, though, for those of us less familiar with these old codgers and their pet potboilers.
