Tea Association of the United States
made public here.
i “America borrowed the idea of mlx

“In this country the idea Is gradu

BOMBAY, INI?1A.—For ages the
natives of Inpla have regarded the
fearful harvest of death by venen
mous serpents as a visitation of fate
I*olsonoua snakes, principally the
deadly cobra, are credited with mote
than twenty thousand deaths annu
ally. Apart from the deaths and suf
fering to humans there are large
ItfeM* In' domestic animals. And be
cause the snake la regarded as an
vV*ct of veneration by the natives
miet* I'.m been no concerted attempt
ti octroy these traditional enemies
of mankind. The “alpina karting”
t$ Mae snake is called in India has
maaaed free.
Today for the first time, there is a
converted movement upon snakes.
Dune fashion, In her search for the
hoaatiful and the bizarre has found
a commercial use for the snake and
importers are now taking about two
million snake hides out of India an
nually. The varieties Include cobras,
■vs tor snakes, boa constrictors and
jgrthons. The skins of the smaller
•‘Alpina karung” are used In the
. umufacture of fancy shoes, port
•*l'x8, bill folds, belts, and cravets;
the larger snakes are also used for
these purposes and In addition fur
nish skins for the upholstery In ex
pensive automobiles, furniture and
milady's costumes.
Catching a Snake.
Along a sunbltten ridge in India, a
small band of natives crawl over the
rocks, peering Into the crevices. One
gives a call, the others gather. For
a time the group is motionless. But
presently it Is tremendously agitated.
The movement of the dingy white
headdresses contracts with that of
the brown lithe bodies. And now
they are seen extending a large py
thon. Immediately back of the ser
pent’s head, attached to a long fork
ed pole, is a noose of heavy Jungle
vine. Other natives are helping, pull
ing away at the tall and amidships
to prevent contraction of the power
ful muscular body, lest It grip one
of the number In Its terrible em
i brace. ,
Wa Is skinned and his hide Is ship
ped to dress makers In Paris, Londou
and New York. The big element la
his demand Is “style." A fashionable
pair of alplna karung shoes sell for
$25 on Fifth Avenue. An alplnn
karung coat brings as high as $1,000.
A few weeks ago one of the lead
ing Nav York department stores ad
vertised snake skin slippers at “re-'
duced prices" of $12 a pair. Cut
whatever the price the buyer Is In-,
sured of almost life long durability.
So great Is the demand for snake
skin that the snake farm In Brazil 11
