A flock of roving turkeys may not
cost, their owner a great deal if his
neighbors are patient and uncomplain
ing people, otherwise they may cost
him a lawsuit and damages, or, at least
a big lot of unneighborly feeling. On
the theory that* turkeys can get their
own living and are not great eaters,
they are too often left wholly to their
own resources. Tills neglect leads them
to wander far and wide for food, to
commit depredations in neighbors’ gar
dens and truck patches, to fall a prey
to the wrathful stranger’s club or dog,
or perhaps to change homes to that of a
farmer who treats his poultry with
greater generosity. It Is good policy,
even at this season, to keep faithful
watch o\ er the flocks, to notice where
they roam in the daytime and where
they stay at night, and whenever they
come about the premises to make
friends with them by throwing out a
little grain. The turkey crop will not
be ripe until Thanksgiving, but it will
be well to cultivate it now.—Farm Jour

collar there are probably calluses to
