When Introduced Into England They Were Considered One of the Richest Items at a Ban-quet-Many Varieties of the Bird. SENOR DON TUR key played a brilliant part in history even be fore the Spaniards discovered him, along With Mexi co, in 1518. Long before that he had been wor shiped by Aztecs. Later, when his religious vogue was past, he was given place of honor at the marriage banquet of a king. So superior a viand was he con sidered when first introduced to Eu rope that in a "constitution" set forth by Cranmer in 1514 turkey is named as one of the greater fowls, of which an ecclesiastic was to "have but one in a dishe." But he speedily multi plied to such an extent that no later than 1555 two turkeys and four tur key chicks were served at a feast of the sergeants-at-arms in London. Turkeys at that period were men tioned in connection with cranes and swans as important and rich ite:ns of a banquet. A little later, in 157S. ';-.r-key were used on the tables of Eng lish husbandmen for the Christmas feast. In the meantime they were more than plentiful in their home land, where turkey continued to- sell for about six cents apiece as late as the nineteenth century. For six cents in those good old days a turkey weighing about 12 pounds could be bought by a good shopper. If the family need ed a turkey weighing 25 or SO pounds it was necessary to pay as much as a quarter. But it must be remembered that six cents in those days counted a good deal more than it does in this. Turkeys of Various Kinds. The turkey that the Aztecs wor shiped was probably either the Mexi can wild turkey, which is known by the white touches on its tail coverts and quills, or, more appropriately, the ocellated turkey of Honduras and other parts of South America, whose brilliant plumage, spotted almost as gloriously with vivid colors as a pea cock, somehow allies it particularly with that vivid early people. The tur key which strolled out of the forests of New England and furnished so mar velous a banquet for our Puritan fore fathers was a handsomer bird than that of Mexico, in the opinion of some lovers of beautyrbut not so brilliant a one as the Honduras turkey. The American wild turkey, -which really belongs to Thanksgiving, was the North American wild turkey found throughout the eastern United States and Canada. Scientifically it is known as the Meleagris Americana. Its plumage is black, shaded with bronze. In the rays of the sun the bird gleams in a beautiful harmony of black copper, gold and bronze. And the turkey likes the rays of the sun. He hates damp weather, not alone because it is bad for his health, but because it obscures his beauty. It is generally believed at present that all the turkeys of the world- two back across the waters from one of their scattered stations in the great woods of Canada. In any event, one of its representatives figured at the marriage banquet of Charles IX and was regarded as of sufficient impor tance to be mentioned in the reports of that festivity. The Mexican turkey is the wild bird of Mexico, which also came over the line into the southern part of the United States. Meleagris Gallopava is the name that is generally employed to describe this turkey. It is some what shorter in the shank than the northern species. Its body color is a metallic black, shaded with bronze. This is thought to be the species that the early navigators first bore back to Spain and England. The white tips of , its plumage also have suggested that it is to this bird rather than to the wild turkey of North America that niost of the domestic fowls owe their origin. The ocellated turkey, Meleagris Ocel lata, which is smaller than the oth ers, has a bare head and neck. Its body plumage is bronze and green banded with gold bronze and varied with spots or eyes of brilliant colors blue, red and brilliant black. Why Is a Turkey So Named? Why the turkey is called the tur key when its origin is admittedly pure ly occidental is a subject that has puz zled many persons. There are several reasons given by those who have delved deeply into this problem, and one is privileged to take his choice. In the first place, It is stated that the turkey was originally supposed to have come from Asia. Thus at a time when a great stretch of territory on the Asiatic continent was called "Turkey" the bird derived its name from its supposed origin. Another speculative chronicler records that the Indians called the bird "firkee" and that from this its common name was created. Then, again, it is somewhat generally believed that the bird named itself by its peculiar utterances, which are still translated as "turk-turk-turkee." Again, still more subtle philos ophers have traced the naming of the bird to its kinship in the matter of polygamous habits with the Turks, and there are other explanations. The pilgrims were not so bad off in some ways as We have been led to imagine, for although they were de prived of the joys of tinned meats and vegetables and cold storage and sim ilar blessings turkeys were so plenti ful that it is recorded it was custom ary to refer to them as bread. An other chronicler sets forth the fact that the breast of the wild turkey when cooked in butter was esteemed by even the epicures among the ex plorers. But in spite of their abun dance turkeys were regarded with fa vor even by the red men, if one is to judge by the following prayer which vthey uttered: "Oh great Being. I thank thee that I have obtained the wra of my legs again so that I am able Co walk about and kill turkeys." , .
