FLOODS FLOAT COFFINS
FROM OLD CEMETERIES
Fishermen Reap Reward for
Catching Boxes as They Drift
Down the River.
Little Rock. Ark. The recent rise
of the Arkansas river brought a new
kind of drift down the stream and
the river "rats." instead of pulling in
stray saw-logs, have been catching
coffins. Reports from Conway and
other points state that fishermen along
the Arkansas river have caught and
tied up several coffins which contain
ed the bodies of iersons evidently
dead for some time
Robert L. Gregg of Conway first no
tied a cotfin floating down the river.

It lodged on a sandbar, but later was
lloated awa. W. W. Matthews and

time, but the sight was too grewsome
for them and they did not make an ef
fort to catch it.
Word of the tloating coffins was con
vened to iho:-e who have relatives
buried in cemeteries along the banks J
of the Arkansas within the limits of
Conway Relatives visited other
graiey.itds to iind their feais realized.
Rewards were offered for the recov

abandoned their usual diversion to
watch for the tloating cotlins. but not
so with the negro fishermen.

Cool nights drive bull snakes Into
winter quarters, where they remain
until late spring, while the gophers
and moles work a much longer season.
To guard against this the farmer could
' gather his snake every evening Just
as he does the cows, only place them
in lined baskets and keep them be
hind the kitchen stove.
t Sometimes the snakes might escape
' from the basket and decide that on
the iarmer's bed was a much warmer

j bosom. But one wouldn't mind that
when he got used tc it.
The bull snake is a light yellow,
spotted with brown. They often grow
to be six to eight feet long and are
very powerful. They are not poison
