On Thursday A.M. Aug. 27 about one o'clock there was a rumpus in a hencoop at Mr. W. J. Week's. In one minute cyclone time Mr. W. and his gun were out there; the disturbance had ceased, but several chickens were skulking outside; supposing the hen had been carried off he made a circuit of woods but found no traces; returning to the coop he pulled out one dead chicken and discovered an animal in the coop.
At this juncture the gun reported, and the opossum was buried the same day; the old hen escaped and during the day was around with her brook less one.
