THE ARIZONA i.EPUBLiCAN : SUM DAY MORNING, OCTOBER 7, 1894. ANTS AGAINST SNAKE. Numbers Won in a Long and Kxclting Battle. "While camping in Alabama during the late war," said Col. H. C. Cross man, of Dayton, O., the other day, according to the St. Louis Globe-Demo-erat, "I witnessed an attack of a band of black ants upon a striped snake. "One evening while I was trying to go to sleep after a long day's march I felt something move under my head. I lifted one corner of the blanket and found a snake between three and four feet in length. I quickly hit it with a small stick, but the reptile seemed hardly stunned by the blow, so 1 picked it up on the end of the stick and threw it about fifteen feet away. The snake landed on a large ant hill. Almost in stantly the ants poured forth from their nest, which was underneath, and began a vigorous attack upon the in truder, who was soon covered by scores of his assailants, biting him fearfully. The battle raged with fury, the snake writhing about in torture. "The contest at first seemed an une qual one, for the snake was rapidly thinning out his persecutors, but, on the other hand, the ants were very numerous and quick in their aggressive movements. The snake with one blow of his tail would kill or wound a long line of ants, but the active little creatures were soon reinforced by fresh troops and fought with a desperation wonder ful to behold. I was astonished be yond measure to see the tactics of the ants. When they saw their numbers were being lessened they dispatched couriers for fresh relays of soldiers, who appeared on the scene in due time to replace the killed or wounded. "The moon after a time lit up the scene, but as there appeared no near termination of the struggle I gave up watching it, and, stretching myself again on my blanket, went to sleep. Before striking tents the next morning I went to look at the battle ground. The slain insects were scattered in every direction, but there were six or seven watchful ants upon the back of the snake, which lay stretched out dead near the ant hill." FUN WITH SEA TURTLES. A School of Them That Covered the Sea .for Many Miles. "I am reminded," said an old coasting captain to a Washington Star man re cently, "of an experience I once had with sea turtles on the edge of the gulf stream, aloout sixty miles from Ilatteras. I was part owner and cap tain of the Mary Lyle at that time, and was coming up from Savannah with a half cargo of rice when one morning the outlook yelled to me to come up on deck and look at the sea turtles. When I got up and looked over the rail the whole ocean as far as I could see ahead of us was covered with turtles. They were tremendous fellows and were paddling along lazily in the opposite direction to that in which we were going. "It didn't take us long to rig up a w indlass and tackle and begin pulling some of the old fellows aboard. We picked the biggest as they came and in the course of t&ree hours we had caught twenty-six, about all that we could handily dispose of about the ship. Only nine of them lived until we reached New York and we sold them for good prices. The shell of one that weighed four hundred and seven ty pounds is now in New York. I would hate to say how many turtles were in sight of the Mary Lyle that day for fear somebody might think I was fish-yarning, but they came by us steadily for five hours and when we got well into the school it extended as far as the eye could reach on all sides, and there was a turtle to about every forty square feet of water and I didn t see one that weighed less than one hundred and fifty pounds." H;s;h Culture of To:n;.tofs. It is a -.t'jni!,!i rag how many tomatoes r.:ay be pro. meed on a siu'lj plant, if iof;ardener is willing to take pains viUi the crop. One plant can be made 'lOy.cidas Uiueh as half a dozen by ordinary methods. A plan which has be en tric-U with success is to dig a hole ; foot deep and a foot wide for t lie !a:it. Fill this with fine rich soil, veil mixed with a thoroughly, rotted i-ompjst. Sot the plant in this and s;iv; it the best of subsequent cultiva tion. Tie it to a stake three feet high :in 1 before it is quite to the top pinch i li' the end of the plant. Pinch back Uie laterals so that they do not spread ii.li over the ground, making as tree like a bush as possible. This will set vastly more fruit than if left to run wild, and the fruit will be of better size and quality, and you will avoid raost of the danger of loss by rotting. Large, early plants of the tree-growing varieties will yield surprising re sults. Colman's Rural World. New Remedy tor Woo.ichtirks. A new way to get rid of woodehucks is to choke them off with vapor from bisulphide of carbon. Close one open ing to hole air tight, and pour about four tablespoon! uls of carlvon on a ball of ras. Roll down the other opening p.nd close quickly but carei clly. The hole may be opened from out-iide. but very seldom from the inside if direc tions are followed. The cost is about four cents a hole if purchased of a druggist, but can be "really reduced if purchased of a manufacturer. It is claimed that this plan is sure death to woodehucks; but care should be used in handling s.n explosive, volatile liquid like the bisulphide. Lunch Counter.
