On Tiicsday last a German butcher by
the name of Hans WIg".r fased through
our town en route for Uttte JiOck. wbetss.
he stated, he had mitny' Irknids. After
traveling as tar as the first crossing of Da
Vis Creek he became fatigued, and as there
Was no hod-e in sight, concluded to rest
himself UpHn SHtnc Hat rocksi which form
ed quite an inviting' resting place by the
roadside. Exhausted In blind as well as
Llxwiy, he soon fell asleep and all was a
blank to hlin until lie aroused with a stait
and the reajiiation that He was In the
clutches- of srlfiiS Hue HF something ; look
ing down, such a sLht met Ids eyes as
would have made the stoutest heart! bound
with agitation. Clasping both right and
left legs were IB rattlesnakes of the dia
mond sjJbcies. colled from the feet tip and
looking him greedily in the face from both
sides. It was a moment to try the nerve
of the bravest herb' ferlown to history, ami
we need liartlly say tliSt .Mr. W. trembled
fttihi head to foot,' but knowing tliat ids
salvatirin was Inaction rather than action.
he drriijled back as If slior, and lay as one
dead; htHv long he remained In this pre
dicament is hard to tell, as Under such cir
cumstances minutes lengthen Into hours
and hours into days, but some time after
dark both snakes, becoming wearied, no
doubt, slowly uncoiled themselves, and,
after trawling tinder his neck and round
his head several times, moved quietly
away. It Is needless to say that cur Teu
tonic friend made tracks for the nearest
bouse and fell fainting while trying to
climb the fence to enter. After some little
trouble he was revived, but it was found
that during h:s lying still, blood had oored
from his eyes and mouth ; his hair, which,
lie said, before was raven black, liad al
most an Iron-gray cast. Ilttrrison Art.)
