we, voters, would like

might have great influence in drawing
that line. If it is a grammatical line

HB. Root's Strang* ttrpertenee with
Copparhaads— A Work.
Mrs. Mary Hoot of Manwbury was
bitten on her forehead by a copper
head snake while abe was putting a
le on the swing shelf In her cellar,
e snake having el imbed to the shelf
in sofne way and lying there ceiled,
•ays a Gallon, Ohio, special to the N-*
York Sun. 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
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.
Two cows and a horse running ia
tbe pasture on a farm adjoining the
Root place were found dead and much
swollen on different days of last
week. The owner believed that they
had been poisoned ny a hired man
be bad discharged, and be started
for the justice's officc to swear out a
warrant for the man's arrest On
hix way to the justice's the farmer
took a short cut through the pasture
where the cattle had died. When half
way across he was startled by a shrill
rattle and discovered In a bunch ol
grasx ahead of him the Ueadiv coil of
n massassaiiqua or marsh rattlesnake.
He killed the poisonotu reptile and
went no farther. He knew that tbe
massassauqua and not the hired
had killed his cows and horse*
