Pennsylvania Snake Stories.
Jerry Brady, who works for John S.
Strickland on his iarm near Middletown,
Pa., was harrowing in a held ou Friday,
when n big black snake came out of a hol?
low stump and made an attack on one oil
the mules Brady was driving. Brady
struck at tin- snake with his whip, when it
left the mule and started for the driver.
Brady took to his heels, and the snake fol?
lowed him. He stopped at a stone heap in
the held, and turned on the approaching
snake and began stoning it. He missed it
every time. The snake kept right ou, and
as it carm within a yard of Brady, he
struck at ? with his whip. Tho lash wound
around the snake's ueek and fastened
itself there. The snake seemed surprised
at the situation, ami turned to gel away.
Brady held on to the whip, aud succeeded
in laying a couple of big stones on the rap
tile's head and dispatched it. It was more
than six feet long, and was of the racer
species. During the day Brady killed eight
more of the same kind of serpents, besides
two copperheads. He says it was the best
day's harrowing he ever did.
Elias 'Moser of Lynn township, Lehigh
county, is one of the most trustworthy citi?
zens of that county. Pie owns a big farm, is
j a good Jcll'ersonian democrat, and a strictly
; temperate and pious man. A few days ago,
he says, he was goiDg along tho edge of a
piece of woods on his farm when he saw the
head of what be supposed was simply a
very large specimen of the ordinary black
snake sticking out between the bottom rails
of a fence. He up with a stone and tried to
hit tho head. He missed, striking the rail
above it. The iustant. the stone struck,
tlin head raised up, and the snake it be?
longed to began to como ou! from its hiding
place. Farmer Moser backed away, and
section after section of the snake appeared
until the reptile stretched over more than
twelve feet of the space between the farmer
and the fence, and still there was.more to
come. Moser had seen enough, amiturned
bis back on the serpent and started for
! home. After he had run several rods he
looked hack over his shoulder. The snake
was alter him and gaining on him, carrying
its iiead high above tho ground. Moser
mounted a high stone wall that offered its
friendly presence just at that spot, and
jumped down behind it on the other side.
Tho snake glided up the wall and followed
the farmer. Moser says be knew there was
no use trying (o beat the snake in a foot
race, and so he grabbed a big stone oil' the
wall and hurled if at tho advancing uiou
Btor. Luckily the stone hit tho snake just
hack ol the head and bore it down to the
ground and held it there. While the ser
j pent, twisted and kicked aud lashed its im?
mense length in vain efforts to free itself.
! Moser piled more stoues on it, and finally
mashed its head. Then he hurried home
and got bis hired man and his gun. When
he came back thus reinforced the snake was
dead. l! was carried to the Moser home
stead and measured. It was If!', feet long.
If had two broad white rings around its
neck and a white belly. All the rest of it
was a bluish black. The head was long,
pointed and Hat. Local naturalists say it
was a King snake, but no serpent of tho
kind was ever seen in those parts beforo.
Two Women Whipped.?The "'Knights
of the Switch:" to the number of twenty,
went to the house of a woman named Mar?
tin, in Jefferson township, Ohio. Monday
night, and demanded admittance. Upon
being refused tbey promptly battered down
tbedoor. Two men who were inside made
some.show of resistance and several shots
were exchanged without injury being done
before the knights overpowered the in?
mates. Mrs. Martin and her daughter Lilly
were then dragged from bed, stripped, tied
to the door frame and whipped with hicko?
ry switches until they were unconscious
and their bodies shocking masses of bruises
iwA bleeding flesh. Mrs. Martin was the
first to revive, and was told that if she did
not leave the county within 24 hours
she and her daughter would be killed. The
j men, who were married farmers living in the
; vicinity, were dismissed with the admoni- \
I tion that if they were again found in a house I
j of ili repute they, too. would he killed. The
; knights theu rode off. ..
