What’s in the bag? Wood shavings!

Here’s the story. Dmytro Zibchyn had brought his wife’s cousin, Mary, to visit Jelena Fedoruk at the Fedoruk farm near Wroxton, Saskatchewan, ca. 1930. Jelena and Mary filled two burlap bags with wood shavings to make it look as if Dmytro had brought them “big presents.” Done just for laughs!
