The Jeweled Serpent' Headdress.
In Italy the peasantry talk of the
"jeweled serpent" and tho wonderful
crown or chaplet which he wears. This
serpent, which the naturalists claim is
as mythical as the legendary hoop
snake, is held in great reverence by
the ignorant Italians, and many curi
ous stories are told about his crown.
The crown is believed to be separate
from the snake's head, and to be com
posed of natural jewels of great occult
power. Occasionally a jeweled serpent
lays his crown aside while foraging,
and if it is found and picked up by
some person at this time it will work
weal or woe, according to the time of
day. Insanity, the Italians claim, is
caused by people discovering and pick
ing up serpent crowns in the early
morning, before the dew is off the
grass! St Louis Republic
