Bitten by Snake.
Late Saturday afternoon while out
in the yard erathering pears Miss
Eliza Mims was bitten by a snake.
As she was picking up some pears
that had fallen under some brush
she felt something strike her right
hand and observed that the skin on
one finger had been pinched in
three places. The wound began to
pain her severely and she called her
brother, Mr. George P. Mims, who
removed the brush and saw the
snake but it escaped at the time.
He hurried his sibter to a physician
in his automobile for treatment.
Some medicine was injected into
her hand and the arm bandaged.
The treatment took effect at oi 3e
and was altog3thersuccessful. For
a short time the pain was very se
vere but her hand and arm swelled
Early Sunday morning Mr. Mims
went to thc spot where he had re
moved the brush and began a search
for the snake, finding a large high
land mocassin within about eight
feet of where his sister was bittep.
He shot the poisonous reptile with
his gun. Miss Mims' escape from
more serious trouble is doubtless due
to being hurried as rapidly as possi
ble to a physician. Highland mocca
sins are regarded as very poisonous.
Miss Patti Major of Pickens, an
employee of?the U. S. government,
is io Edgetie'd in the interest of
Home Demonstration. She was pres
ent and presented her work at the
meeting of the Woman's Christian
Temperance Union on Monday af
ternoon, and a large number of the
ladies Mgned their names as mem
bers of the club, which will be
formed next Wednesday in a room
of the school building. Miss Major
will make' demonstrations at that
time. She hopes to meet with the
othe?* organizations and present hen
work to them before that time.
Lost Left Hand.
Monday afternoon while shooting
doves with some friends in the
Philippi section Mr. W. S. Cog
burn sat down by a tree with his
gun, a hammerless double-barrel
shot gun, in his hand: As he arose
from whepe he was sitting, raising
himself with his gun, it was acci
dentally discharged into his left
hand which was so badly lecerated
that it had to be amputated at the
wrist. He was brought to Edge
field and the operation was per
formed here. He has been doing
spendidly since the operation. His
many friends sympathize with him
deeply in his misfortune. Mr. Cog
burn carried an accident policy of
$15,000 and will receive 87,500 for
the loss of his hand.

Astonishing Gasoline Records
With the New Briscoe '
OWNERS report unusual records made by the new Brisco on coun
try roads-in gasoline economy, hill climbing and speed work.
Recently a Briscoe stock car averaged 39.2 miles to a gallon of gasoline
on a 172.2 mile run between Dallas and Mineral Wells, Texas. The Half
Million Dollar Motor gives inexhaustible power with unusual economy
non-expert drivers get 25 to 30 miles to the gallon.
This powerful Briscoe picks up speed in high gear on hard hills. It has
made great records in severe mountain work in California-has been
driven through snow up to the body and traversed routes and grades
The New Briscoe is the ideal country car in every respect-is balanced,
sturdy and extra-roomy for five big passengers. If you are six feet tall
you can stretch full length in front or rear seats.
Wonderful value at $725.
