Saturday night, somewhere between ten
and twelve, just as we were preparing to
retire, we heard the gate in front of our
domicil open, and ou looking out to see
who the intruder was at that bour of tbo
night, we discovered a tall, good looking
young man cautiously threading bis way
towards our poultry coop. Under his arm
be carried a bundle, which in the dim
light of the moon, looked marvelous!
like a turkey. On reaching the coop, be
cautiously opened tbe door, tbrut in bis

Thinking he had carried thatj'fce far
enough, we stepped to the door and told
bim we'd thank him, when be opened our
