In ao general u on our national trad dny, and because It had been domesUcated Of the Indians Ions; before the discovery or America by Columbus, The name whs given In error, as It was supposed lo have come from Turkey, which It did mil. the common turkey betas' naUva to North America, But let the turkey tell his own story: j I can introduce myself aa ef the type vertebrate, because I have a back.; bone. I m classed as a bird because I am an animal that dresses in feathers rather than In skin Ilk men or to wear wool like sheep, hair Ilk a horse's or fur Ilk a bear. My order Is gallinaceous, from a Latin word, meaning henj and our order Is sometimes called rasores, also from the Latin, because wt scratch for a1 living. We practice "the strenuous lift" which other preach. My family Is a large on, in Phaslanlda, which Include most of th do mestic fowls and alao pheasants, grouse and quail nearly 100 species In all You notice that I have com Jaw-breaking word In my sclenUflo record,; but my jaws art called mandibles, from a' Latin word that meant to chaw, th upper and lower mandible forming my bill. Th whole opening of my mouth I called my gap (broad a, plea,) and sometimes th rictus; but that word should always be restricted to th back comer of my mouth. You must have noticed how beautifully my neck Is wattled. That ware) wattle I Old English and mean a bag. Th other nam for my wittlee, car uncle, comes from th Latin and man fleeh, I 00 bareheaded, but wear a great many feather from my neck down to my tibia. Everybody's leg below th knee (Including yeur and mlna) hat two bone, of which on Is th tibia. My tlbla I feathered. Below that Is th tarsus (Greek heel In vertebrates, th joint that bend back, while th knee-joint bands forward), and this tarcu Is tar of feathers, but covered with big Mai. I wouldn't dart p renounce all th long word that go with this part of my anatomy, but it may be Interest ing for you to go turkey-hunting In th dictionary for "Kulated" and rtlatoal ward. Look for "drumstick" and see why It ia called "tlbla-tareus." Whlls en my feet and legs I'd better tell you something of my toes, of which I have four, beside the spur, this last-named weapon being merelfutly denied to the females of our family. My first to grow out In a Beamingly awkward way behind the spread of my foot; but It la really a convenience) when I want to clutch anything, as, for Instance, th branch of th tree where ' ' tan I I generally roost. This toe I two-Jointed and called th hallux. Th eeoond to, th Inner front on, is three-Jointed; th third or middle on haa fear Joint, and th fourth or outer on has five Joint. Now, when you prepare m for th oven don't throw away my lower tags and feet, but clean them thoroughly with a brush and warm water, to which you have added a pinch of aoda. Lay In cold water after a genereu rinsing, and whan you (tart th fir to roast my carcass put my lags (th tarsus only) and feet Into a basin, cover with cold water and let them tit whsr they wilt Immer until th roast I done when you have a foundation or stock for th most delicious broth. I could tell you how th chicken soup trad began In Washington Market with a poor woman who utilized what th marketmen threw away, only to buy back from her In th form of a bowl of (teaming hot oup, for which they each paid her a dim and she became rich from this humble beginning. My "giblets," too (heart, liver and glziard), are used -by th thrifty house, wife, who chops them fin after cooking them in the dripping pan with th "bird," and then adds them to the already rich gravy for "horn conaumptlon," My giizurd is a sort of mill where my food I criwhed, being th second or true stomach, after being softened In th first one, th "crop," in th lower part of the neck. 1 My wishbone has s longer nam, furculum, from the Latin word that meana fork. The meaning is obvious. , As to my plumage, first are th "contour feather." These give outline color and are ornamental appendages. These feathers art moved by muscles which are located under the skin, give me a chance to "spread myself" by brushing the ground with my wings, erecting my body and tall feathers until I seem twice my usual slie while strutting about and uttering my "gobble." That word, by th way, Is Old English. The tail feather, th great quill feather of the wings, art the rtmlges, or oarsmen, of our tribe. They do th heavy pulling In flight, at tht oar doet In rowing. These form th spread of th wing and are stiff, strong and "pen. naeeous," pen-like. My tail feathers and upper-tail coverts art tipped with a beautiful chestnut brown or brom in my wild state, and with whit In my tarn state. Let m tell you a bit of my history. Domestication ha diminished my Six anii strength, dulled my plumage and Improved my temper. In th savage life of th forest I am liksly to attack my own children (poultf they are called) and be In return attacked and beaten off by my wife In their defense. Then I "get mad," and hunt up other maltreated turkey hut band whose hen will not let them rud th house. W go away In group ef, a doien to a hundred, and w do th tramp act to perfection, until mating time arrive, when we generally get Into a pretty fierce fight, a "free-for-all." W were introduced Into Europe early In th sixteenth century, and in many places have become "naturalized." Th wild member of our tribe art disappearing before tht onward march of civilization, but wt domestic turkeys art increasingly appreciated and art being raited In so great numbers that I havt heard it stated authoritatively that If tht "turkey" money were applied to tht national debt it would be wiped out In lest that ton years. Turkey eggt art from nint to fifteen at a "clutch" tht ntxt complement, sometimes reaching twenty. They art highly prized for tating by tome, and art large, with white shells "freckled" with brown. Our young turkeys art delicate, needing careful watching for a few weeks, at tht hen turkey It likely to take them off on long trampt In wet gratt duo. Ing tht tarly morning, and they art not often able to endure thlt herole treat ment We turkeyt feed on grass, grarris, fruits, vegetsbles, insects and even "gobble" young frogs and lizards, picking up a living almost anywhere. j. it
