At 6 6'clock Wednesday evening Fred Wicklin, a well proportioned jag and a six-foot snake established themselves at the corner of Main and Exchange st. The serpent Mr. Wicklin carried under his coat. He would beckon the people to him, and then suddenly produce the "Anti St. Patrick" to their gaze. The people screamed, the serpent hissed, and Mr. Wicklin laughed. Officer Doerler. arrived in time to see Wicklin chuck some thing under his coat, and he collared him as a fit subject for arrest. Acci- dently the snake fell to the ground, surprising the officer greatly. Wick lin then explained that he had re cently purchased the snake and was merely giving it a formal introduc tion to Akron citizens. Officer Doerler colleoted together Wicklin, the' jag and the, snake and took the aggregation to P. T. MoCourt's liv ery stable, meanwhile telephoning for the patrol wagon. . The snake, which was suffering from a severe indisposition owing to cold and rough handling was piled in a helpless heap in a corner of- the stable, and while Mr. McCourt was expostulating upon tho necessity of quickly removing the snake from his property, were the reptile's safe ty to be considered, James Sword, accompanied by a bosom friend, named Jag, arrived at the stable. They stole the snake and were leav ing with it, when Officer Doerler also placed Sword and Jag under arrest. The patrol wagon arrived, and both Wicklin and Sword, the snake and the jags were taken to the City prison. The snake was dumped into an old bucket and some time during the night the shivering, quivering Ophidian subject died. Thursday morning Prisonkeeper Washer carried the snake into police court. He intimated that it had been frozen to death, whereupon Mayor Young ordered it to be burn ed to death. The snake was placed In a furnace, and it is now no more that is, tlie snake is no more. Wicklin was much vexed at the outcome of the affair, claiming that he had paid a good price for the snake. Wicklin and Sword were each fined $2 and costs, and Wicklin, it is siiil, will institute an action for damages against Washer and the city. Chas. Sevonger was fined f2 and cost-? for intoxication. He was ar rested in a South Main st. saloon by Officer Baker.
