An Old Turnip

We carry many things with us, but we confess we’d never thought about carrying a turnip. From the August 23, 1904 Skidmore Standard, page 1:

An Old Turnip.

Joseph V. Parrish has a turnip that is nineteen years old. He carries it in his pocket all the time. It weighed less than ten pounds when he first got it but it has dried and shrunk up until now it is now about as large in circumference as a silver dollar and about half an inch thick.
