THE DUDE HAD GEIT.
BUT IT WAS A CLOSE CALL FOR THE
Ha ranked Tp Frosca Battler, WlileU
Thawed Out as He Carried It In tbe
Hot August 6an Florida Snake Sharpa
Astounded at the Deed,
"I vras once on agnnning trip dnring
the raouth of August in the hammocks
along tho lower St. Johns river. I came
to a hotel on the river bank that 'was
keeping open for the little business
brought to it by the river traffic. EaCk
of the hotel was a fringe of pines, and
beyond Sio pines was a wach of barren
country coveied wifh a growth of blue
palmetto and gallberry.
"Among tbe persons 6taying at the
hotel were rr5 young men whose in
terest ia tho region centered in those
things which pertained to natural his
tory. Both were well dressed. Their
hands wore white and smooth. In town
they might have been taken for bank
tellers. Ono morning, before the sun
had taken the chill out of tho air, oue
of these guests, in a pair of rather gen
teel top bixits, wandered for a consider
able distance through tho low palmetto
scrub. In his rath ho found a rattle
snako twico as long as tho orange wood
stick with which ho walked.
Tho chill of the night air was still
in the marrow of the reptile, and it was
an eary matter for tho young nahiralist
t'o clutch the make jusl liackof his jaws
and hold him in a firm gra.p with tho
thumb and circling forefinger of tbe
riglit Jiand. Carcfnlly lifting the body
of tho smike with tho left hand tho nat
uralist started for the hotel with his
greatly valued prize, carrying his orange
wood cano under his left arm.
"There is nothing else that so warms
the cockles of a rattlosnako's heart as
tho vertical rays of tho snn, anil before
the young naturalist had made half the
journey to tho hotel, tho captive snake
had managed, unobserved, to twist his
tail nlKrtit his captor's thigh. Thus an
chored, ho gave an ablcliodicd pnll,
which was tho naturalist's first intima
tion that the snakn was putting off his
sluggishness. With bis left hand tho
man was about to unwind the coll from
his thigh, but ho found that if ho let go
tho snako at its middle tho mnsclo of
tho reptile would bo tmj much for the
right hand grasp at its throat, which
was tho only safeguard against a stroke
from its deadly fangs. So ho tightened
his grasp upon tho neck and quickened
his pace toward tho hoteL
"Tho sun mounted toward the zenith
and his rays became warmer. They
gave strength nud quickness to tho cap
tive reptile. Instead f a steady draw
from the tightening coil uround tho
man's thigh came a series of angry
writhings which severely tested tho
strength iu the hands ami arms unused
to endurance. With each convulsion a
change in tho tint reflected from tho
monster's scales ran liko a thrill from
its head to its tail, and then came tho
warning rattlo that nobody has to hear
a second timo in order that ho may
know its meaning. Tho flag on the
cupola of tho hotel l'.nng limp in tho
hazy distance. Tho orange wood stick
had fallen from beneath tho arm of tho
yonng naturalist. A numbness was
taking possession of tho muscles in his
arms and wrists. Ho knew what that
meant. 3Icanwhilo thodiamoud marked
reptile was warming up for the strug
gle. His eyes from pits of molten lead
had become deep set diamonds. His
angry writhings were fearful to see. He
was venom incarnate.
"It was looking exceedingly serious,
not to say desperate, for tho youug nat
uralist. Cheerfully would ho have put
asido.Jiis enthusiasm in tho canso of
scienco'nnd oust tho reptilo from him,
but that he couW not do. The rattler's
tail was coiled tightly altout his leg,
and if tho m:uihad loosed his hold upon
tho neck and middle of the reptilo its
fangs would liavo mado their deadly
mark upon him while yet tho coil was
unbroken. His lifo depended upon hrs
reaching the hotel before tho strength
in his arms gave out, and how much
strength ho had left ho knew not, for
tho numbness in them had driven out
tho senso of feeling. Again ho quick
ened his pace.
"It must have seemed nn endless jour
ney to the young naturalist us ho hurried
along, his eyes fixed upon tho writhing
monster, except when they wero raised
for an instant to glance ut the nag hang
iug alxive the hotel ; bnt at last ho was
within the grounds. His friend rushed
forward from the little group on tho
veranda, but turned and rau back when
ho saw tho look on the young natu
raiist's face. Iu a moment ho appeared
with a strong cord and a cane, which
he hail caught up in the hallway.
While he was tying a slip uooso in tbe
cord neither of the men spoke, bnt it
was easy to see that bath knew there
was no time to waste.
"As tho noose was slippVd over the
reptile's head i:d tightened by means
of the cane a convulsion stronger than
any that had prec-dod it drew together
tho benumbed bands which held the
writhing creature, and they yielded to
tho force that drew them toward the
coil, which now twioo encircled the
" 'I'vo got him,' said the nan who
held tho noose.
" 'Well, kindly untwist his tail My
bands are a trifle tired,' said the other.
"This service was dno quickly, and
the two young naturalists wtnt to their
rooms with their captive.
"Among those who had stood speech'
less while these things were going on
was Rattlesnake Bob, a local snake ex
pert from up the creek. A- the young
men disappeared he said, without shut
ting his mouth :
" 'Waal, I'll be if them dedes
hain't got grit !'
" Yes,' said one of the guests.
"They're catching snakes for the SJciith-
sonian institution to experiment With. '
