Tbe poison of the snakt, affected Mr&. Root so seriously tbaL for several days she was not cx pec tea to live, being most of the time de lirious. The venom finally succumbed to treatment and Mr* Root gradually recovered. About a week after she became able to go about, she went into the yard AD king up K' clothe She had her clothespins in a muslin bag She laid the bag on the ground until she was ready to use it When she thrust her hand into tbe bag to take out somo clothspins her middle fltiger wac sei/ed by something, and iDrttantly ftjstiock of excruciating pain flashed from her finger to the shoulder. She quickly drew her finger from the bag, and dtopped the bag on the ground. The instant it struck the ground a copperhead snake ran out Of the bag and hurried away la the grass. Mrs. Boot's cries brought aid to her, but she became blind and de lirious before she could be taken to the bouse. She is now lying io a precarious state, and Dr. Ball doubts that she will survive this second In jection of copperhead venom into her system while it was stilt affected by the first charge. Tbe copperhead and its mate were found In the high grass BOt far from whore Mrs. Root was bit ton. and both were killed.
