Mexican, who haa made anake hunting
a business for a number of years. He
does not confine himself to the harm

the rattlesnake. These are eauzht alive
and aold to a dealer In anakes. whoae

This Mexican anake hunter aa two
methoda of catching a rattler. If the
anake la large he places a forked stick
on its neck and holda It, down until he
can get-a hold of It In auch a manner
aa to drop It Into a Back. But If It la a
email rattler, a stlok la aot used.' The
hunter watchea the reptile until It coll a,
ready to strike, and then with a swift
movement of the hand catches the
snake Just below the head, grips . It
tightly and slips it into a sack. "
Catching Water Xoooaslns, . -,"
Wbtle catching water moocaalna, how
ever,, he usually goea barefoot and when
the moooasla la too urge to be eauabt
with the hand It la lassoosd with a
email lariat attached to the end of a
a tick. Sometimee this Is done by let
ting the reptile swim through the loop.
At other timea It la thrown ever the
head of the ejwlmmlng snake with as
much, accuracy aa a sanua marksman
ahoots with a gun. In the winter, when
anakea are hibernating, the anake hunt
er finds a hole and thrusts a stlok down

stick moree-he knows there la some
thing below and proceeds at once to
dig out the anake. But If there la no
movement after watohlng for a half
hour or so, tha hunter seeks another
hole and repeats the test with a atlck.
It Is not an .uncommon thing for this
snake hunter - to bag 100 pounds of
anakea In one day. These, If they be

pound, alive.
