are always tiyliiK a new method to cap

scheme was to tibo ltoinan candles.
The other night they stnited out. The
dogs soon lalsed a coon, chasing It
tlnougli a imiBh and deep ravine anil
up a locky spur tin the north side of

which were balking under a large

a coon, but nothing came down, Then

no faith In the Idea, and us he was

up a tiee. The animal's fur caught

caught sight of another coon and put
a bullet tluough his head and the ani
mal fell dead at his feot. Another
candle was lighted and the thlid coon
was sighted. Whalen had by this time
Income quite an expert, and with a
steady aim he hit the limb to which
the animal clung. It lost its hold and

AN OPHIDIAN MYTH.
A conespondenl ot the New York
Woild gives a luminous account of the
pianks of a hoop-snake, which is said
to have taken its tail in its mouth
and lolled instead of ciawled over
seveial acies of 1 md. The stoiy was
a good one, but as a faithful fiiend of
lacts, I am compelled to state that
theie is nothing In the reptile species
appioaching a hoop-snake. The stoiy
about a snuko putting its tail In its
mouth and rolling around the eountiy
like a b.mel hoop was originally stait
ed by Bli Pel kins, the great-gieat-giaudunclc
of Tom Ochlltiee, of Texas.

A fanner near Montrose recently suc
ceeded In capturing a snake or pair ot
snukes conespondlng to the Siamese
twins. The leptlle has two heads and
two tails, and the balance of the body
looks like that of a .single snake, with
the exception of a slight depiesslon
both above and below, extending the
entiie length. The bodies join about
six Inches fiom the head, the tails are
almost a foot long, after leav ing the
bodv, while the length of the ptopoi
tlon Joined is two feet and nine Inches.
The twins were (list seen seveial
months since by a little son of the
fanner, who told his father what he
hud seen und showed him the Hack

to captuie the prize He, howevei, un

he said, was to be a member of the
