Don't lie humiliated on that ac count, however JTOU have eaten nil descendant many times, if Dr. T. Ahmatead Savage, K. It. o. s., is right. Yes, sir, turkey, the traditional bird of America, is not American, the is plorer aaya. The great "Thangaklving bird" has nothing of which to be proud m his ancestry; he comes from the dodo, the most foolish and in sane bird that ever laid an egg. Maybe ilie bird won't taste so Well after this, hut the chances ate you will forget all about the uglyVdoda when the holiday carwng begins. Doctor Savage of Melbourne, Aus tralia, is not alone in his connection of the turkey with the dodo, in Dins Sir Ha iiion (.estrange told of seeing B great lord on exhibition in Lon don side show and that it was "some what binn-'f than the largest turkey cock and so legged and footed, but shorter and thicker." Doctor Saam a'so attempts to trace the turkey's antecedents t,i the tnoa, the extinct bird of New Zealand, which resembled the dodo in many pa r t ten lai s. The Encyclopedia Hri tanntca says in describing the an cient bird: "Some were of truly colossal dimensions, comparatively speaking, for they were sometimes 12 feel in height." For ten years the doctor, who Is noted for his explorations in Mada gast ar, has been looking up the line age of the turkey. In carrying on this work he hits been ably assisted by his wife. Mrs. Lola Savage. They have traveled all around the world In making their investigations. Doctor Savage and Ids wife re mained in China almost a year study ing birds and fowl there with rela tion to a possible connection with the turkey tribe. Then they went to the Island of Borneo, to Japan, and fin ally came to this country. Here they observed farmyard turkeys for sev eral months, and finally went to the American Museum "f Natural His tory In New York, where they com pleted their ask. tine of the greatest aids to Doctor Savage at the American museum were two figures of the dodo, a bird which became extinct 2.10 years ago and Is generally believed to have been a myth, although science litis proved beyoBd a doubt thai it existed on the Island of Mauritius and was one of the silliest blrdl that ever drew breath through a hill. The dodo, ac cording to Doctor Savage, was the great-great-great -grandmother of our American turkey. Chicago Herald.
