TliankaRtvIng Bird Can Trace n--Inccstry
Far Hack.
No. you haven't sat down to a dodo
dinner: that is. not unless you are a
Mauritian 228 years old.
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.
