The Story of the Tu r k ey mN Ifi-rt the Puritans dis? covered New KngUud. and the next year, ?Inn tbry were m>lng to have their first Thanksgiving dinue.-, the) discovered the turkey," wrote a small l>oy In his Thank-:-.ivlng composition. Thus he set tied, to his own satisfac? tion at leas', a long dis? puted question - when and where the first turkey was found. A century ago wiser heads than his did not find the question easy U> dis? pose of. and their discussion wa.-= im pnrtmit SSKMkgl to attract the atten? tion of the learned Prof KeoUmann. Some claimed It was first found in Africa, whence It was brought in early days for the banquets of the Kornaus others believe that, because of Its name. It must have co.ue from Turkey -a term then applied vaguely to Tsr larr and even to \sla in general Its Herman name, kalekuter. led to the assertion that the first s two miens bad been shipped from Calcutta; but those inclining to this opinion wer- laughed at by others, who said that kalekuter was simply the German attempt to express the bird's rry. A few believe that tho bt'd was an Importation from 'be new world And while learned heads wagged over the problem the ? urkey went straight on gobbling Its way into European barnyards. It was Introduced into England as early, some say, as IMftj and at a ban? quet given by Queen Mary In li?t young turkeys are mentioned aa the greatest delicacy on the table In a curious old book files' "Five Hundred I'olnis of Husbandry,*' by Tusser, am to lie found the lines: rjsxfs, in-.'t.m and i>"r!;. si red BtSS of tin Phi, SS and eepee and firms Chen*-, ssjplsa and m.ts.

The JaaaJta long were credited with having introduced the turkey into France from Spain. This may ac? count for the lifelong animosity to the .1.'suits of the great critic Hoileau of l.nnls NIV.'s time.
