A fork swallowed by a Cow.

--Mr. J. Francis Johnson, of this county, while slaughtering a cow for beef, a few days since, found sticking through her upper stomach, and firmly fixed in the gristly part of the brisket, a large horn-handle dining fork. It had evidently been swallowed some months before, and what is remarkable, she is reported to have been very fat and thrifty, up to the time she was killed. The presumption is that, in the effort of the stomach to discharge the fork, the tines were forced through its substance and into the flesh where it was found.--Madison (Ga.) Visitor.
