a very threatening aspect for a time
and created a panic, broke out .Tester
afternoon ia a Clark street dime
museum. It being Easter Sunday the
two small theaters in tho building
were entertaining audiences of more
than the usual proportion, at least 1,
000 persons, who ooaupiod every avail
able inch of space, beinir .present. The
audiences at once made .a rush for the
door and for a time .pandemonium
reigned. The wildest -confusion pre
vailed among the freaks and perform
era, but all escaped without injury,
many or the actors running into the
streets in their sta?c attire. On the
third floor the collection of huge
snakes was on exhibition. .Among
this collection was a boa constrictor J2C
feet in length. A female snake charm
er had charge of the reptiles, nnd
when tho fire broke out she attempted
to place thcin In a box- Calllnsr for
assistance, a stranger elimbed into the
cngo and offered to help capture the
snakes. Ho picked the largestonc up
by the neck and no sooner had he done
so than the snake, recognizing it'.wac
in the hands of a stranger, coiled lit
hugo form about the man's arm. The
snake charmer, realizing the mart's
danger, told him to keep a firm grip
on the snake's neck. A terrific straggle
then ensued, but by the combined ef
forts of the fair snake charmer and the
oblliring stranger, the boa constrictor
was finally jammed into a box and secured.
