FIGHT WITH A TURKEY. i

FIGHT WITH A TURKEY. i A story of an extraordinary encounter between a man and a turkey came to light Tuesday from North Staffordshire. A well- known Hanley artist, who prefers to remain anonymous, is the principal figure in the story, and he states that during the last week-end be was sketching some ruins in a field not far the Potteries, when a full-grown turkey ap- proached. Finding the bird's attentions un- welcome, he endeavoured to frighten it away, whereupon the bird suddenly made a vicious attack upon him, shooting its beak into his face in a dangerous manner. Taken off his guard, he retreated, and the bird proceeded to demolish his sketch, after- wards resuming the combat, which lasted fully fifteen minutes. Snake-like darts of the bird's head, made with lightning rapidity, brought the turkey's beak unpleasantly near the artist's eyes, and though he rained kicks on his feathered assailant they took no effect whatever. All his attempts to get to close close quarters and seize it by the neck were unavailing, and it was not until the artist was thoroughly exhaausted that his cries for help brought a party of golfers and farm-hands to the scene, and the turkey was driven to flight.
