PERRY SCOTT'S TURKEY.
This Wonderful Bird Was Well Fixed
With Legs and Wings.
The story of Perry Scott's turkey has
come down from Revolutionary days ID
Carolina Colonel Gordon was accus
tomed to tell of the hasty march which
he made before Rudolph's legion He
w:is just sitting down to dinner when
orders were given to cross the Ashley
river It was nearly nightfall when he
bivouacked in a valley In which the
cavalry under Wayne had just en
camped and, with bis officers, began to
sup on dry bread and potatoes. The
infantry which be commanded were in
a starving condition, and the cotntms
sarj w.is without money, but raiding
upon the faimers was sternly made
punish.i ble by death
Reports of the hungry condition of
the newcomers had circulated among
Wayne men Just as the colonel be
gan to nt his musty bread a private
from Wayne's cavalry appeared and
said respectfully: "Perry Scott bad
some money, colonel, and bought a
turkey We have unfortunately eaten
all but one leg. I took the liberty of
bnnsms that to you." The colonel
took the leg gratefully and bad scarce
ly finished it when another of Wayne's
men appeared with the same story of
Perry Scott turkey and another leg
The colonel congratulated himself on
his luck and. handling the drumstick
over to a fellow officer, went out of the
tent It was growing dark. Another
cavalryman came up. whispered the
story of Perry Scott and cautiously
handed o\er a third leg. The colonel
continued his walk through the camp
and before his return had been secretly
offered twenty legs and fourteen wings
of Perry Scort's turkey.
Wayne's men had raided a poultry
yard the previous night and concocted
the story of Perry Scott's purchase to
protect themselves in case any turkey
bones should be discovered The hun
ger bitten faces of their new comrades
were more than they could bear, bow
ever, and each man. unknown to the
others, carried bis share Into Gordon's
camp at the risk of detection and
death It was not until the war was
over and the troops disbanded that
Colonel Gordon told the story of Perry
Scott and his many legged fowl.AT
