When Men Interfered,
The following special dispatch ap
pears in the Commercial Gazette
Maiuktta, O., March 3. A largo
snake was killed at the Court House
here today. The janitor, who Is also
watchman of tho County Treasury, has
a bull pup, which he keeps In tho cel
lar, with door opening out Into the
back yard. In order to glvo the dog
proper exercise, ho has a small tread
mill, which tho dog runs a certain
number of hours every day. His
snakeship had evidently taken up his
winter quarters in tho litter of the cel
lar, and getting warmed up by tho boat
of the furnace, thought his period of
hibernation had passed, and that sum
mer had come, ho sallied out when the
dog was operating tho tread mill. As
soon as the dog saw tho snake ho
pounced upon him, evidently preferr
ing that kind of exercise to the mo
notony of tho endless wheel. Tho
snako wound himself around the dog
and from this moment the contest wa3
decidedly an uneven one. Tho howls
of tho dog soon started the occupants
of tho Court House to hunting for tho
noise. The j.nitor hastened to the re
lief of his canine friend, and dispatched
tho snake In short order. It wus a
black snake of the spotted variety, and
measured seven feet.
