Benjamin R. Tillman, t'nlted
States senator from South Carolina,

south, was In Albuquerque for forty
minutes Saturday night, en route to
the Grand canyon, after a lecturing
tour through Colorado and Utah,
which ended at Denver.
While Senator Tillman Is recog

"They are a worthless class." an.l
his eyes flashed and teeth closed with

LIFE IN NEW
Prof. Julius Hurter Relates
Experiences In Handling
Snakes and Lizards.
Prof. Julius Hurler, curator of the
Academy of Science of St. Louis, who
Is in the southwest collecting speci
mens of reptiles, generously consent
ed to tell something of his work and
experience In his particular field of
science for The Citizen readers when
seen this noon at the home of Prof.
E. C Hodgln, where he was a guest
Jlis Life Work.
"I have been connected with t',12
Academy of Science of St. Louis for
fifteen years, collecting reptiles," said
Professor Hurter. "Studying the life
of these despised creatures is my life
work; it is my hobby and 1 can not
Imagine anything more fascinating.
My work brings me in close commun
ion with the beauties and wonders of
nature; It takes me out into strange
and little known places; it keeps me
in the open air, and best of all. It is
continually teaching me something
new. It seems to me that the great
est pleasure a man can have Is al
ways to be learning something new.
Procuring Xcw Simi'Dih'iih.
"I like the study of reptiles and I
am out this way to procure new
specimens for my collection. I am
on this trip primarily for my own
private collection, but of course I
Bend duplicate specimens to the acad
emy. Eventually the academy will
own my collection, too.
Socunxl Hare Varieties Here.
"It was not my original Intention
to stop oft at Albuquerque, but I have
a friend here, Joe Siewart, an old
scholar of mine, and he wished me to
visit him. I am glad I did stop here,
because we have found some Interest
ing specimens In this vicinity. Mr.
Siewart and I have been out several
times. The first afternoon we went
south of the city near the Rarelas
bridge and got thirty specimens of
frogs, toads and snakes. We got
tnree spade-root toads which are very
rare, ine snakes were water snake
and the ccinmon garter snakes.
"The next time we visited the sand
hills in this neighborhood and got
tnree uinerent species of bull lizard"
some of them being fifteen inches
long. We got a toad; I do not kno.v
the name it commonly goes by here
abouts, but the Latin term is bufo
cognatus. Resides this we got

Jt is a Kind of snake resembling

the sand hills a rather odd place to

"We also went over to the lava
beds and picked up a few specimens,
This section of the country contains a
great many varieties of reptiles and
tne specimens we got are the finest
of their kind, of course we picked
up any numoer or little lizards so
common hereabouts, which are not
chameleons, though they go by that
name. I have recognized five species
or these reptiles here. We have not
round any poisonous reptiles, but
have not looked for them especially

"In catching snakes, lizards. froKs

room and returned with a cane in his

it usually recovers from the wound.
les, I have hud some dangerous
experiences in my time. Once
thought I would die of thirst in the
Uraiid canyon of the Colorado. Water
Is scarce there and in wandering
aooui looKlng Tor specimens I forgot
about drink till I was a great distance
from water. Pi fine I got back 1 was
almost crazy with thirst.
"In all my long experience with
reptiles of all kinds 1 have never
been bitten by a poisonous snake. I
once was bitten by a Clla monster
and had no antidote with me at the
time, either. The animal clung ti
my hand with Its teeth and 1 had to
pry him off with a stick. My arm
swelled up to the fchuuldi-r and was
very painful, but no serious injury
resulted, strange to say.
Xot Afraid of Snakes.
"There is not a snake that I know
of that I would be afraid to pick up
with my bare hands. It is nothing
when you understand them and their
ways. I have made a long study of
these things and have nothing to fetr.
The safest way to pick up a snake
a rattler, copperhead or cotton snake,
it does not matter which kind is by
the tail. They cannot strike you
when they are helu ty the tail, on
the other hand. It Is not always safv
to grab a snake by the back of the
neck. It is remarkable how a snake
can turn its head and bite.
'Vet thoUKh I do not fear snakes. 1
alwa8 carry an antidote in case of
accident. I am always preoared for
the worst that can happen. I inui-t
(" Very lucky, fur one dav a few
years ago in Arizona I cauKht flfty-
nlne rattle snake in one day and
never even gut a bite.
'The best antidote 1 know of for
snake poison of any kind Is strych
nine. Inject this Into the blood In
large do.-es; but first be ure you arc
bitten by a venomous reptile, or the
poison will kill you. The venom of
a snake a quick acting and paralyzes
me mart. 1 tuler this abnormal con
dition the Injection of U.rKe doses of
strychnine Serve to stimulate the ac
tion or tne heart. Any stimulant
that quickens the heart is helpful
whin one has been bit ten by a ven
omous reptile. Sucking the wound is
good also, but cauterizing is useless
except in rare cases when the poison
has not penetrated beneath the sur
face hVsh. The wound should always
be widened to allow the blood to Mow
freely; often the poison will tluw vff
with the blood.
KecM M'clinciiii Alive.
"I like to catch my specimens alive
and when at home i keep them alive
as long as 1 can. I have had copper
heads live a whole year without eat
ing anything whatever so far as I
could learn. Very few reptiles will
eat anything in captivity. In pre
serving specimen we now use a for
maldyhlde solution Instead of alcohol.
We find that this Is more satisfactory
In many ways. In ehlpping speci
mens I take a gallon tin tan f j'.l of
snakes and pntir formaldvhlde nolu
I tlon over them until ready to send
Then I pour off the li. mid" and send
inn oy express. 1 lie specimens
will keep long mouth in r.rh iv,i-i
destination by this method and thev
will arrive in excellent condition
"From here I will go t the petrl- j
o-o ii'htib 01 AMzuiia ami rrom there
to Flagstaff nd the Kan Francisco
mountains. After thit I win visit
Phoenix nnd Tucson and other places.
My reach for specimens this summer
will be extended and will take almost
all summer. For the most part I go
Into the wilderness alone, camping
out when necessary.
"I have had some amusing experi
ences with my specimens. Once a
rattle snake of mine got out of Its
box In the sleeping car and almost
caused the lady passengers to Jump
out of the windows. 1 caught the rep
tile and then I thought they would
throw me out of the window."
Professor Hurter will leave tonight
for the petrified forest.
