Hattlksxakk and Crab.?Editoi
McComas, of the Havre de Grace AV
pitblicun, who recently had a rattle?
snake sent him as a present from We.-t
Virginia, tells the following story about
the reptile :
'?Our pet rattlesnake, heretofore al?
luded to in this paper, was loaned tu
Mr. J. N. Spencer, und for two or
three weeks has lived in state in a gl iss
case in a show-window of his Ftor?*, mid
many people have gazed on the reptile
and stirred him up to see him bump
himself and give that warning rattle
against their trading en him. A chick?
en was placed in his box and the snake
soon killed it. A rat wi>s then given
him as a companion, but one blow
from the snake's fungi .-0011 ended the
rodent's life. But the little rattler met
his match a few days ago. A lively
crab was placed in his box. They j
looked at each other for a little while,
and then the s ake struck at the crab.
Hut quick as a Hash the crab shot out
its claw and grabbed the snake by the
neck and held it so firmly that the rep?
tile lashed itself around in pain and
fury until it broke oil' two of its rattles
and th?- button at the end of i s tail.
Bystanders had to break the crab's claw
off before its hold could he released
from the snake's neck. Wednesday
we had the rattler boxed up and sent
to the Philadelphia Zoological Gardens,
the officials of which had asked for
him. And we don't want any more

The reason so many people, even children, now wear spectacles is not because the sight is
more defective than formerly, but that the Doctors and Opticians are more skilful in correct?
ing defective vision. I am prepared to fill any prescription for compound cylindrical glasses.
I keep a full assortment of the finest and most accurately centered lenses, especially for pre?
scription work. The glasses ought to be the proper size and the frame fit exactly to the face to
give comfort and good sight. I have the most improved instruments for measuring the pu?
pillary distance to the eyes, height and shape of nose and width of face. I also keep the me?
dium and lower grade Glasses so I can suit every body in prices. I have reduced the A run
