A Mysterious Sense,
Somo thirty-two years azo, in North
ern Indiana, with a company of per
haps a half-dozen men and boys, I was
on a not August iorenoon oinuing a
small pieco of grain that had lain sev
eral days in swath to dry after being
cradled. At that season tho mas
sasauga (the small brown and white
rattlesnake of tho region) is said to bo
blind, and does not rattle when ap
proached. Tho suakes are quite apt to
crawl under swaths of hay and grain,
and to lie there a long time if not dis
turbed. For some reason perhaps it
looked liko rain all hands were set to
bind and shock this little patch, audits
something was tlio matter with ono of
my hands so that I could not bind, I
raked up the bundles for two others to
Having heard of the propensity of
tho massasauga to hide under swaths
at this season and to k''ep quiet, I was
careful iu rolling up t. e swath into ft
bundle, always to rake the bundle off
the swath before leaving it, lest n
binder should srathcr uu a snako in his
its we were finishing tins last of the
patch the two who wef" binding after
mo began lo race, and it was almost
inipo.s-ible to get a bundle raked tip
and oil' tho swatli before tlio binder
would bo ready for it. Still I managed
until the last, and was very strongly
impressed that I must ti"t let tho bind
er who was jumping to get it and
bind it before tho other finished his
catch it up beforo I raked it quite off
the ground, lie had his band all
made and was just stooping, when I
said: "Hold on, Jimmy! There's a
snako under this!" "Nonsense!" said
he, and gave mo a shovo so that ho
could pick up tho bundle. But so
suro was I that thero was a snako
there although wo had not met one in
the fieldthat 1 struggled with him,
each shoving tho other, until 1 got a
chanco to reach out my rako and pull
tho bundle off tho swath. Thero lay
coiled a massasauga about three feet
long, with his head up and ready for
business, "and saying not a word!"
A few steps away in a corn field was
a hoe, tho snake's head was quickly se
vered from tho body, and my cousin,
tho owner of the field, picked tho snako
up by tho tail to pull off tho rattles,
which, by their number, showed that
the reptile was seven years old. The
moment ho began to pull tho bleeding
neck Hew up as quick as a flash ami

Some interesting questions suggest
themselves: First, why had 1 such a
certainty that there was a snake under
that last end of tho last swath, al
tlioutrh we had found no other iu tho

Second, what was tho mysterious
sense of direction that made that
headless neck strike so swift and
straight, just as it would had tho head
been on it? Is thero a less necessary
connection between the braiu and the
rest of tho nervous system in cold
blooded animals than iu other verte
brates? A'. 1'. I'ott.
