Particulars of Kia
There la one man In Boston who has
no fear of women Invading bl line oi
trade, and up to the present time be is
ue only man, as lar as is known, is
lii.s state, who is a professional snake
richer. This man, reports the ros.oi
G'.obe, Is O. W. Mason, who docs no;
iuii. his living is in any way strange,
'.or he considers snakes iar less nara.
less than dogs or any other pets.
A Glob reporter accompanied Mr.
Mason on a snike hunt to the Bl.;e
hills the other day and was shown con
Rlutiiely that there need be no fear
af anybody getting klllel from the bite
of a snake In this vicinity. Mr. Ma-a
lonned leather gloves, leather gat rt
end unfolded his snake-caicblng app -ratus,
a long stick, from which hun
?. stout string tied to a sort of a dredg
ing machine. This machine was at
tached to th part of the stick nearest
the ground, and Is worked with uie
string attachment. When a snake is
seen Mr. Mason, with the stick In the
right hand, string iu the left, follows
it, places It over the snake's body, an J
the snake Is no longer at lioerty.
'Well," said Mr. aiaaun, alter tne
Srrt snake was caught, "did he run
alter me or did I have t run after
"You see," he said, without waling
for a reply, "If t had gone about my
owa business, as It were, that snake
d-o-ild now be enjoying the pleasure of
: asking In the hot sua. No," continued
he, "a vicious dog would have turned
on me ithout provocation, but no
matter how vicious a snake Is, he will
avoid a conflict ,
"I have gone Into a den of nearly
100 snakes, . and not on of them
turned on me until cornered, and then
the fun began. Time and again I have
been bitten, but have not yet met any
thing snake shaped that fear. If I
..ere to nou tne white .nuntr thlnrs
might be different, but I know what to
do hen there is danger around.
"Near K.mdolph, about two miles
away from the nearest electric road,
I latch at leist 20 rattlers to one cop
perhead. There are to be found the
Indian mails, unknown to any but pto
.'efwors from the (liferent colleges th t
accompany me when there is m l
-eHtigation of the different snaite pri
sons under way. The coyiierhcad-i ar?
..loat plentiful at or near tlie erra xi
-diiion, very far away fro.n places vis
ited on Sunday by plcnl.iui.g parties.
"They run as ht h as two tojnt's n

weigh aaj much as eight pounds, and
arc at leitii ten feet long. 1 hive fought

"One I fought 14 rattlers. It Iook
me two hours to get the lait o.ie, and
though they were as nnd as hora;ts
1 got the last one wituout harm, al.
"Strange aa It may seem," said Mr.
Mason, ub he stroi.ed the bead of oi.e
of the snakes which bad ventured to
the top of the -bag In whl :h It ha I been
put, "won.en are not as ma-h afraid
of snakes as are the s.trtKr sex. A

Th Sond of Empire,
Forty years ago, befote the nations
of Europe developed their navies, it
was the opinion of so.i.e statesmen
that a friendly separation would relieve
the mother country and leave the
colonies in freedo.u and saleiy. It is
Imioss'ble to hold that opinion now.
