I Capture Great Bird as to Kill
LAWTON, OKLA., Nov. 25.—Unit-
ed States Deputy Marshall Al Guff
knocked unconscious for a few a. -
onds by a monster eagle which had
shown a most puguacious disposition.!
The deputy marshal attempted to
grasp the daring bird which was
' sweeping , around him. The engle
turned on him with a stroke that laid
him out temporarily. He had several
companions who fired at the bird,
bringing it to the ground with a
broken wing. It was then captured
and is now on exhibition here. Goff.
a republican, says he has always
stood by the eagle but that he would
he hanged before he would stand up
to one again.
