With the Advent of Crisp Cool weather which brings the first suggestion of Winter animal life at Billmeyer a game preserve begins to assume an added interest. The Deer which a month or so ago seemed quite tame and inactive Are now bounding gracefully about and assuming All the inspiring Ami characteristic poses of the Chase the several thousand Gray squirrels that inhabit the Grove Are just As Busy As that Many Gray squirrels can be in autumn and with the wild turkeys and other forms 5f animal life contribute to make up a scene of remarkable activity and a a fascinating nature study. Speaking of the wild turkeys of which there Are some two Hundred in or. Billmeyer spark it is not generally known that they leave the game preserve in Spring and return at autumn. Some time prior to the hatching season they Start out some of them settling in the different patches of Woodland along the but by far the greater number flying a far As Montour Ridge where Many secluded Points abound that suit the habits of the wild Birds. The old Turkey however �9 sure to remember where she was Well fed and had a Safe and comfortable Home during the Long Winter previous and after hatching out her Brood with the Advent of autumn she repairs to the game preserve taking her family of Young ones with her. Or. Bill Ever says that the wild turkeys which leave in the Spring May be relied upon to return to the Park in the fall excepting of course those which May happen to be killed during the summer. In those cases the Young ones knowing nothing of the Park its kindly shelter and Protection of course never put in an appearance but join the Colony of wild turkeys that subsist on the Mountain and thus become legitimate prey to the Hunters gun. Or. Billmeyer is justly proud of his Park the half a dozen splendid Elk Are objects of never ending interest As they belong to a family of wild animals that Are rapidly approaching extinction in these parts. The old patriarch of the group Mammoth in size and just at this season very Savage is confined in an enclosure alone. He would kill a Man in a moment and one or More of his keepers have barely escaped death under his immense Antlers or. Billmeyer has con Sitler ably More than a Hundred Deer of All Ages and sizes in the enclosure. Just at this season he revels in Venison. Only yesterday he brought to town a Jarge Fine Deer killed on monday which he sent away by express. Or. Billmeyer is quite a naturalist. He understands the habits of wild animals and be has demonstrated the fact that the denizens of the Forest if properly cared for and treated can be reared and made to thrive if not actually tamed like Domestic Aff smals of the farm. How j. B. Olea ver averted a destructive runaway. Merchant j. B. Cleaver averted a destructive runaway yesterday afternoon by an exhibition of rare Pluck and nerve during the afternoon or.
