Cow Turns Somersault

Sister of One That Jumped Over the Moon Lives in Washington. 

HUSUM (Wash.) July 22.—(Exclusive Dispatch). A cow belonging to J.T. Rorick of Grand Dalles has performed an acrobatic stunt that would cause the ordinary spangled artist of the circus ring to turn green with envy.

While being driven home from the pasture along the steep embankment above the railroad, the cow was crowded over a precipice, falling a distance of 200 feet.

An eye witness says the animal turned a complete somersault in its downward flight, and, after reaching the bottom, got up and made for the dairy with only a few scratches.
