Two At One Shot.

On Tuesday Col. Charley Wofford brought in two fine turkey gobblers weighing twenty-two pounds each which he killed near his home on Pine Log at one shot. Both were rich bronze in color and were fine specimens of the wild turkey which range in the mountains of Bartow county. Col. Wofford is one of the oldest settlers in Bartow county having come here in 1834, but long before the Indians were moved out, but he still has a keen eye, and when it runs along the barrel of a rifle the game is sure to come down. He says there are lots of turkeys in the mountains and he gets as many as he needs for his home supply and a few to spare.
