From The Topeka State Journal, March 13, 1913.

     Farmer to claim agent:
 A cow of mine stood on your track
     About a week ago,
 And now old Bessy’s in the land
     Where all good bovines go.
 Your engine poked her in the ribs
     And left her stiff and still;
 You bought old Bessy then and there,
     So kindly pay the bill.
     Claim agent to farmer:
 Old Bessy never should have stood
     Upon the railroad track;
 You cannot blame old Twenty-Four
     For hitting her a crack.
 We didn’t drive old Bessy there,
     It’s not our fault she died,
 So bury her and mark the grave:
     “A bovine suicide.”
