himself lucky in losing only one md as

for lost. A few days ago, 70 days alter
the turkeys were put iv the barn, he
was removing some hay in the barn
and found his long lost fowl hedged in
between tbe hay and the side of the
barn. The turkey was rescued alive
and given something to eat which it
seemed to enjoy. Its weight had
dwindled to 4i pounds, it was weak
from hunger, but will recover. Tbe

days and nights, but the turkey has
outclassed tbe doctor by fasting 36
