Leak for the Cat and Kat Jftuiiii;ik's.
The Greensboro Telegram tells
a pretty little story and puts you
on the lookout for an interesting
little exhibit at the coming State
There was a house at Hillsboro
built before the Revolutionary
war. Sometime ago a Mr. Coloy
was employed to tear down the
building. Near the comb of the
roof he found tho mummies of a
cat and rat. Evidently the rat had
retreated into a place r.n sin a1!
that the cat could just reach it
with one paw arid one tooth.
From this wedged condition
the cat could not retreat and the
rat was effectually shut in. They
became mummified and the
specimen may be more than a
hundred years old.
Mr. Cooly proposes to have
the exhibit at the fair. Have an
eye to it.
