A Cow In A Well
A cow story comes from East Walllngford, Conn. The cow belongs to George Francis. Tuesday morning tbe animal jumped over the fence and alighted on a lot of boards that had been laid down to cover an old well. The weight of the animal smashed the boards and the cow went plunging down to the bottom of the well, a distance of thirty-seven feet. The owner supposed the animal had been killed or at least had its legs broken. A tackle was rigged up . and let down and secured around the cow's horns. After much difficulty and with the aid of several men, the beast was dragged out of the well. To the surprise of all the animal was alive. For a short time the cow seemed dazed, but gradually improved and is now reported as being none the worse for her fall.
