ALL FEAR SNAKES
Members of Uncle Sam's For
estry Service Protected.
Never Without Antidote That Is Said
to Render Bite of Even the
Uncle Sam's forestry service is ever
on the watch against rattlesnakes in
the national forests. Arrangements
were some time ago perfected for the
arming of forest ollicers and fire-fight
ers against snake bites.
The weapon provided for them is a
small combination tool conthining a
sharp steel lancet and a receptacle to
hold perhuanganate of potash, which
Is declared to Ve the best antidote for
snake bites. This remedy may not be
altogether popular in districts where
from time immemorial the old-time
favorite remedy, shisky, is held. to
have no equal, but, nevertheless, ihe
official sanction has been given Per
The necessity for furnishing forest
officers with adequate means of pro
tection against attacks ly snakes has
time and again been strikingly demon
strated in the case of big forest hires.
After the fires were thought extin
guished and the men 'withdrawn it was
discovered that the fire had broken out
again. Squads of men were dispatched
immediately to ight them and on their
way they ran into a regiment or two
of rattlesnakes. Iti one case it seemed
as if tihe brush was literally alive with
snakes. The men consunied the greater
part of six hours fighting snakes be
fore they could get through.to the fire.
Several of the men were bitten.
Officials of the forestry service as
sert that rattlesnakes are as plentiful
in Montana as in southern California
forests and lit sections of the southern
Appalachians, acquired in 1915 under
the Weeks law.
The little tool with which the forest
guards are armed can be carried con

only a trifle larger than an ordinary
fountain ieit and not aq long. Indi
vidual emptoyees of tihe United States
Geologleat Survey have been using
these little tools for a long time and
with great suvcess.
Field parties of geol'ogists frequently
run across snakes. If armed with

wound with the lancet, thakes in a lit

It is believed that they have the worst
tiue of all in this relation.
A Troubled Qonscience.
A Norwegian, John Larson by name,
a lumberman had a couple of Swedes
working for him. One day one of
the Swetes got a little fresh and the
Norwegian threw himt into the river.
Then the other Swede got into an ar
gument with him, and he, too, went
into the river and was drowned.
In about six years John's con
science began to bother him. He
went down to the sherlif, Ole Oleson,
"Ola, sax yar ago Ay kill a couple
Swides, aund mty conscience is begin
to bother. Whait skoll Ay do?"
"Veil, I dunnto, John. Ay bane
