1,500 Pigeons Turned Loose
Sunday morning at 7:30 there was an interesting sight at the Southern Express office. The agent Mr. Yost had received 1,500 carrier pigeons from Baltimore to be turned loose. These hundreds of birds first flew straight up and then turned their heads to reach their home at the North. They reached there about 4 o’clock.
