"Old Bessie", belonging to W.E. Dulaney, of Livingston,
recently performed a "stunt" seldom performed by a cow
when she bayed a possum in her pasture. When Mr. Dulaney came home
at about 10 p.m., he discovered something was disturbing his cow.
Going to the pasture, he discovered by moonlight a full-grown possum
on the ground, cow near, pawning the earth. Dulaney captured the
visitor and presented it to a neighbor who had a fine feast of possum
and taters Saturday night.
