A number of years since, a farm;r
in Massachusetts shot at a flock of
ild geese that was passing over to th:
south, and broke the wing of one of
them. He kept and domesticated the
goose, until it was apparently as tame
as any one from our common flocks.
The ensuing spring he neglected t
clip her w5ng and she flew away io a
flock that was passing to the north, and
he conceived her lost. The next au
tumn, however, when a very large
flock was returning to the south, elcren
letached themselves, and alighted in
the farmcrVyard. They proved to
i one old and ten vounc ones. I he
old was the same that left him in the
voyage, and th ae very large. At
