"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.
