Instead of tbe eagle, which I don't Uke
much stock In. Turkeys are good to

brave or good about the eagle. The
eagle cannot bv tamed and la of no
earthly use to any one anywhere at
any time or place. A hawk Is braver
than the eagle. If the eagle had the
courage In proportion to his size of the
sparrow, be would be a wonder.
It waa a mistake a sad. pitiful blun
derto make the enRle our national

on foot now to plan the turkey on our
coins and remove the eagle from where
