A Maake 1b t Cap card.
Some time ago Mrs.. EJ. Howard,
living east of Genoseo went out of the
house a short time leaving the door open.
When she returned her 4 -year-old
said she had seen a snake go into the
cupboard. Mrs. Howard, observing a
striped and twisted bit of calico remnant
near the cupboard, supposed that the
little girl had taken a notion to call that
a snake, and thought no more about it.
But every once and a while Mrs. Howard
could hear rustling sounds in the cup-
ooara, as if a mouse had 1 climbed as
high as it could behind tho drawers,
and then jumped down again. This had
been going on three weeks. One evening
at supper the noise in the cupboard be
came so annoying that Mrs. Howard got
np from the table sayioe that she would
at once set a trap for those mice, and
get rid of them. 8he went to the cup
board and opened it, when there right in
her face almost, its evil tongue darting
threateningly, and its basalisk eyes bal j
f ully gleaming, was a spotted adder three
feet long. Mrs. Howard screamed and
sprang back. Her husband made short
work of the bold intruder.
