Rabb opened his eyes to discover a 4-foot-long snake using him for a bridge. The reptile was wriggling across the captain’s legs, without so much as an if-you-please. It was a little too late, for the officer to demand a toll and too hazardous for him _to try and leap away. So he did the next best thing. He lay stockstill until the snake had completed its journey over him. Then he dabbed ait the perspiration on his forehead and decided that his co-operative attitude probably savad him from a nasty snake bite. NOGALES’ HOME NEWSPAPER ...
