and was just dropping efF to sleep, when II
felt a cold,- slimy, shape era wU"ng across
my right hand as it lay stretched out
above my head on the ' flbof. " I Ttnew at

they "say there is .'a serpent ; but it' does ;

motion the reptile dragged its carcass- j
acrpes my face, inch by inch, : and crept

inside my jacket " As I felt the hideous
scraping, of the Elimy body, oyer my "cheeks'
it was only by . the , most tremendous . et-5

self from yelling loudly with mingled
terror and disgust. 'At last I felt the tail
wriggling j down Lio wards 1 my chin; but
imagine what I felt at heart, if you can
imagine it, as I realized that the dreadful
creature bad coded itselt op under my .
jacket as I lay, and had, seemingly gone
to sleep, for it was still as death. Jbvi-

more. For no matter how . long 1 1 . bore
this, I felt that it would end in death -at

daring even to breathe, . and all the time
my breast was growing colder and .'colder
