BIRD SHOOTS A MAN. Here is a utran^e tale of a wood turkey, told b> Mr HOld.t Crawford in bis Sonth American Sketches," and positively asserted by birn to be t> ne. The bird in qneatioa had been wounded, tut only winged, and rttii away when it fell to the ground. The man who fired ttt it laid dowu his gun hurriedly and gave chase, when a game of hide and seek took place among the brnehwood. In one of its donblings and turnings the bird passed over tho gun, which was lying on the ground, atid its toes happened to s.rike against the trigger of the undischarged barrel, the ham- mer of which had been left at full cock, with the reenlt that the charge went off and wounded the sportsman. Birds, we know, arc sometimes taught to fire off pistolain those exhibitions known as "Happy Families," as we:l as to per- form other unusual feats but it is not oflen that a wild bird in the woods shoots a man with his own gUll, as this one did in Uruguay.
