The , ir was kept in the "ti.ble ami noiirihfit entirely on milk. It w:is getting along remarka bly well until alxitit :i wiek ago, it .lid not serin to care for nourishment and was not a very promising case. Mrs. Diehl could not imagine what was wrong with the animal. Imagine her surprise the other day when the calf discharged a snake H4 inches long in : iecr:iuoed state. After the reptile had lieen discharged the calf liegun taking nourishment with the usual, avidity and ic now seems to Im all right. This story is not to ls confused with the usual snake stories, but is properly verified by K. S. Stroup, Postmaster aud merchant of Stmiiptowu, whose veracity no one has auy occasion to doubt.
