A HEALTHY BIRD.
A CUICKE.V WITH ITS HEAD CUT OKI" ALIVE
Isaac Hiiemau, u youag inaa of McLean
county, 111., arrived in this city yesterday
morning having in his poscssion a chicken
with itidier.d cut oil', the fuwl being ulive
and apparently in gixid health. He carried
his chicken in a larg-; bird cage, such as me
used tor upicking-birds. and a number of
persons ia the ollice having beeti attracted
I y the wonderful spectacle of a chicken
alive with its- head cut oil", it was not long
until scores of people called to see it.
Of these who saw the rooster yes
terday noue had ever I efore heard of any
thing like it. On the 20;h of this mouth
the chickeu will have been living without
its head I'mir months. Hiieman. who has
the rooster in Ids care, relate the i'.-llowiu!:
history of it. It is a black bralima. ubo'.it
a year nnd a half old. It was raised by
Hurt Ilou.-tnn, near Joplin, Henry county,
Mo. On the 20th of March la.-t he went
out into the yard to catch a ch:i'ken to kill
for dinner. This fixtcr was seiirted. It was
caught ty Mr. Houston, who laid its neck mi
a block, cut oil" its head with a hutcliet und
threw the body on the ground to bleed.
The chicken fluttered mound for an instant
and then getting upon its feet.ran under the
barn. It could not If reached, ami suppos
ing it would lie there nnd be eaten by tho
rats another chieheti w as caught and killed
in place of it. Nothing further wr.t thought
of the chickeu under" the barn until two
days later, when Mr. Houston and his fam
ily" were startled to ee the headie-s roster
wandi-rinit around in the yard. The neck
where the head hud been severed from it by
the stroke of the hatchet was titill bloody.
The chicken was of course blind.
It was picked up an! found
to be strong and lively. The
aperture of the throat was visible alter
the blood and feathers had been removed,
and some soft food was Inserted. By intro
ducing the food half au inch into the throat
the chicken was enabled to swallow it. He
rati given about as much food and drink its
chickens usually re-quiro, and would have
taken more After that he was fed regu
larly and tended with greutcrt care. Five
flay later it was purchagd by Nathan
Monro, ri geutlonum living in the northern
jiart of II nnry county, who recently sold It
to Isaac IIll emau or to norsons whom he
r brought It to tliu city.
NEW SEBIES-NO. 19.
Ilileman say that when the chicken made
its appearance from under the barn,
minus it head, that member
was tiien hunted up and preserved in spirits.
This isexhiblted with thechlcken. The brain

attempt to crow. He doubtless feels too
much cast down to do that. Water is given
him by means of a small squirt can tho
nozzle is introduced into his throat. Ilo
eats corn and oats, bread soaked in water
nnd mocking bird feed.
