The Lost Sheep
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. (The Constitution, Atlanta, Ga, June 13, 1876)
