The Lost Sheep

  Cedartown Record

  Mr. Wm. M. West was in our office the first of this week, and gave us the following history of finding one of his "lost sheep." Last fall, after shearing time, two of his sheep got strayed off, and he could hear nothing of them until a few days ago he was at his horse lot, two sheep, both wearing bells, came running up, and of them jumping over the bars into the lot, then into a clover lot, then out and was gone. The other on being called, "knew his voice" and went up to him. On examination he found it was in his mark and his sheep. It had recently been shorn of its fleece and belled. The bell is a new one, of medium size, new collar and buckle. Mr. West has the bell in his possession, and the owner, if there be any, can get it by calling on him.
