In spite of the fact that rattlesnakes were supposed to have denned up months ago, O.A. Gilkey, rancher in the Savageton community, reported killing a large 4-foot rattler on the Fred Christianson range north of the Pumpkin Buttes on Dec. 5.

What do you mean when you say two people “talked turkey”? Why, you mean they talked business of course. But the expression didn’t always mean that. A century ago “talking turkey” to a girl meant flattering her and “walking turkey” meant strutting around the way male turkeys do during courtship. All of which introduces today’s subject, the turkey. In fact it was the British who gave the Turkey its name. For reasons too confusing to bother with, they got the idea that the bird had originated in Turkey and they named it after what they thought was its homeland. All the same the turkey is native to America. Benjamin Franklin, for one, argued that it should have been declared our national bird. He said the turkey had many admirable traits, while the bald eagle is a bird of “bad moral character.”

He walked up to the table where Interior Solicitor Leo Krulitz was conducting the hearing and tossed a pumpkin pie at the back of Krulitz’ head.
