The Gazette has a historical section "Back Pages" where they report what was news. This segment ran in 1919.
"'Take out the lost ad, I've found my ring,' [a lady] requested yesterday. 'Good! Did the Gazette help you?' she was asked. 'Not unless my hens read the paper. [The ring] was in the craw of a chicken we killed for Sunday dinner.' Gazette lost ads usually get results. They offered a reward for the return of the jewel. But did the chicken get it?"
Yes, the chicken got it...with mashed potatoes, stuffing, and gravy....
