hardtobelieve stories are told nowadays but this one is more than conditioned to hold its own with any that have been reported in the papers The following is the sum and substance of the telegram Sheriff Turner is showing as his Christmas present a stemwinding case watch that he claims has a hisiory un ¬ matched by any other watch in Tennes ¬ see and doubts if there is another like it in the whole country In December 1905 while hunting in the coaling he lost the watch and though he searched carefullyfor it was unable to find it He gave it up for lost and had forgot ¬ ten all about it Last week Logan Mc ¬ Craw and Alex Holliday went rabbit hunting in the coaling and raising a rabbit McCraw fired and missed then Holliday fired just as the rabbit ran into a hole and killed it McCraw ran hastily to the hole put his hand in and pulled out the rabbit and was surprised to see something shining at the mouth of the hole He stooped over and picked up the sheriffs watch and yelled By Jacks when he heard it ticking and both were astonished when the watch was opened to find it was within half a minute of the correct time by their watches They then looked at the rabbit and the secret was out for there on its belly the fur had been rub ¬ bed off in a place that exactly fitted the stem of the watch showing that the rabbit had kept it wound up by rubbing against the stem as it went in and out of the hole The sheriff will not tell the make of the watch only saying it is a rabbit watch 10 A Dover telegram The Cloverport Pipe Line Co is mak ¬ ing preparations to put down more wells in
