SNAKE AND BIRD.
A Itemakable Contest Between a Partridge
and a Black Snake.

that snakes ever charm birds, it is true
that birds sometimes attack and kill
snakes. An account is given in the In
dianapolis People of an exciting contest
of this kind, in which a partridge was
the victor. It happened in Preston,
Wayne County, Pa- A traveling sales
man, while trout-fishing in a creek
near that place, heard a commotion in
the bushes near the creek, and cries
such as are made by young chickens
when they are lost. lie peered through
the bushes, and saw a hen partridge
and a large black snake engaged in a
together a short distance
away was the partridge's brood, peep
ing in. terror.' The partridge attacked
the snake with her beak and feet, and
struck also below with her wings. She
moved with such rapidity about the
snake, that, in spite of the quickness
with which the reptile is enabled to
throw it fnM nhntir, anrt.hfno it, nr.
tacks, the snake was foiled in afl its at
tempts to encircle the; bird, which
seemed to be seeking to blind the ser
pent by striking at its eyes. .
In its efforts to get the bird within its
coil the snake seemed to glide over and
under her like a flash, but, no matter
what course it took, the partridge
never failed to slip away from it and
deliver a telling blow upon it.
Once the snake retreated several feet
as if Hying from the bird, and the latter
followed it closely. Suddenly the
snake turned ana rusnea DacK at ; toe
partridge with its head raised more
than a foot in the air. The bird dashed
- forward to meet the serpent, and deliv
ered a blow with its beak which struck
the snake square in one of its eyes,
This was apparent to the witness, who
stood within ten feet of the contestant',
by the snake's instantly dropping its
head to the grouud and rolling it from
side to "side as if iu great pain.
The bird did not Toe a second in fol
lowing up her advantage, but pounced
on the snake close to its head, and, with
strokes delivered with surprising rapid
itv, inflicted wounds with her beak
which seemed to daze the snake and it
glided first in One direction and then in
another, making no further effort to
defend itself, and yet apparently unable
to tma a way to escape. . v
The partridge kept up its effective
striking on the neck of the snake until
the head was almost separated from the
body and the reptile ceased to move.

the battle, but the bird continued to
tear at the flesh of the' snake until he
was near enough to touch her, when
she beeame aware of his nresenee for
the first time. She retreated hurriedly
to the spot where her terror-stricken
after her with a few clucks, led them
away into uie unuerurusu.

On examing the snake, it was found
that besides the fatal wounds it had re
ceived in its neck, both of its eyes had
been put out by the partridge. The
snake was nearly five feet in length,
and had in its stomach the partially
digested remains of a large rattle
A. Gothic Canine Which Smiled With Italic
There is a far-away cloud, no bigger
than a man's hand, idea forming in
my mind that Dempsey's dog ; don't
like me, for although I have only met
him twice, he has taken particular
pains to hurt my feelings; still I am
bound to conquer him in the end as he
has conquered me. I started out
few days after our first meeting to see
Dempsev and learn something of the
dog's character. As I approached the
house I beheld, seated on the front
steps, the Gothic canine and fancied
that her smiled when hi3 italic eyes
ested upon me, and perhaps a remem
brance of our last interview-crossed h's
mind, but no wag of reeognition dis
turbed the serene ,composure ;of hi
parenthetical tail. 1 attempted to re
new our acquaintance by observing:
'loggy, : doggy; good doggy; don't
you know me?r' but as I received no
answer save a suburban growl, I con
cluded hf had not Durdened his
brain with a remembrance of
so insignificant a personage as
myself, and that he did not care to
make my acquaintance. I was mis
taken, for when I passed by him he
rose up and was about to escort mo
about the premises when Dompsey ap
peared to take the responsibility of en
tertaining me off his hands, or, more
, properly, out of his teeth. I asked
Dempsey where 'he got the dog, but he
said he would not like to say, and, to
tell the truth, I don't know that I blame
him; he, however, said that the dog
was very smart and caught on quickly.
I told him I had noticed that. I al-o
learned that his name was "Grip."
. Now, whether the dog had told Demp
sey anything about our first meeting I
do not know; so I .observed that the
name was appropriate and let the mat
ter rest there. On being questioned as
to the dog's hunting abilities, Dempsey
said he was out of practice on every
thing except fleas, but if I liked I-could
take him out some day and try him.
Having discussed the good points of
, Dempsey'8 dog some little time longer,
I took my leave, but it must have been
that the dog did not think I had prop
erly made" my adieu to him, for he over
took me a short distance from the gate
and rem'nded me of my negligence in
a verv biting manner. When.' however,
I had smoothed over the dog's wrath
and the place he had inserted his argu
ment, I passed through the gate, and,
on turning to look back, baheld him
pointing for a fl?a which had pre-empted
a claim on the equator of his spinel
which leads ma to think thatDempsey's
dog is by nature a pointer. Boston
The Way Meals arc Served in New
Few set tables. You are served in
the morning before you get out of bed
with a cup of coffee as good as can be
found anywhere in tiie world, and some
. bread or little Creole pie crust cakes.
There is no trouble about your meals.
There is a 'restaurant on every corner
or so, or you can have your meals served
hot, and at the most reasonable rates.
As a general thing, however, they do
not "go in heavy" for breakfast here.
Your coffee is supposed ' to satisfy yon
until midday, when you take a slight
lunch at some saloon. About six in the
evening you sit down to the big meal of
the day. Snppcrthere.is none, unless
you drop in at the theater, after - which
you eat something light Thus, at least,
you will find tho natives doing, and
those who have been visiting New Or
leans each winter for years will tell you
that it is the most comfortable way to
live here and best suited to climate.
REPTILES. AND INSECTS.
Experience and Observations In India The
Important Agency of Dogs In - Giving
Timely Warning oa Cobra's Presence. V
Tt is during the rainy season, begin-
ing with July and ending with Septem
ber, that the insect and reptilo life in
ndia is in full force; when the steam
ing heat has evoked a sudden burst of
vegetation which the scorching drought
of the previous three months has kept
dormant. Then, also, these lower
orms of the animal creation, as if
hitherto dormant from the same cause,
burst into sudden and redoubled life.
Each patch of the almost visibly grow
ing grass teems with multitudes of in
sects, whose ephemeral life seems to
begin and end with the season, or may
conceal reptiles harmlis or noxious to
man. Each footstep has now mors
than ever to be watched against the
chance of lighting at any t.me upon a
dangerous reptile. Chief
among reptiles oi India, as elsewhere
is the snake, and among the snakes of
India the cobra is most dreaded r and
deadly. Third in order of virulcnoe is
is the krait, and as this and the
cobra are most commonly to be met
with of the poisonous varieties I will
chiefly allmle to them. Of these two
the cobra, by reason of its nature to
bite from pure love of attacking, is by
far the most dreaded and fatal. They
are both partial to dry places, such as
hollows of trees, &c, and also find
suitable quarters in the mud and thatch
houses ot the bulk, of the native pop
ulation. The cobra reaches a length
of five feet and is of a light brown
shade, which alone distinguishes it
from other snakes, but added to - this
is the ominous fan-shaped hood, with
its black horse shoe mark, which it dis
tends from its neck when angry, 1 and
which singles it out from every variety.
It has beside a fierce and Tcnoraons look
peculiarly its own, as"- if indicating at
once its nature and its own conscious
ness of power. The krait, on the other
hand, is jet black, with pure white
bands and attains even a greater length.
but does not possess cither the venom
ous look of the cobra or its destructive
propensity. The eggs of the krait I
have repeatedly come across in old cel-
ars or beneath masses of lumber, as
arge as big hen's eggs, white and soft,
but never have I found those of the
cobra. The European is not . long in
the country without making acquaint
ance with one or the other of these
snakes, and generally when least ex
pected or desired. Indeed, the marvel
of most Anglo Indians after leaving the
country is how they have weathered !o
many hairbreadth escapes and are still
extant to tell the tale, especially so
when they recall the very familiar re
membrance of the numbers of their
darker brethren who succumbed all
around them to snake bite. This im
munity they attribute a good deal to
the constant presence in their bunga
lows of one or more pet dogs who are
generally to be found beside their mas
ter's beds at night, sharing along with
them the cooling breeze of the punkas
My first acquaintance with a cobra was
one night when, awoke by a loud bark
ing, rising half up in bed, I saw through
the open door of the adjoining bath
room where the night light burned, my
two terriers barking furiously in full bat
tle front of alarge cobra that was reared
on its tail and facing them in turn. It was
motionless, except for a slow swaying
of the head, its hood was distended to a
complete circle, its tongue darted in
and out, while every now and again it
emitted a loud hissing sound (which at
first made me think of jungle cats) but
never once did it show trace of fear or
remove from the dogs the fierce, fas-
cinating stare that seemed to rouse
them to frenzy as they kept advancing
and retreating, but still carefully out
side the danger line. Fearing their
wrath-might get the better of the'r dis
cretion, J leaped hastily up and dis
patched the reptile with a stick, when
the dogs, no longer dreading their ene
my, vented their rage on his inanimate
body. I remembered that during the
day I had been surprised v; while taking
mv bath at the dogs silently and per
sistently snuffing around an old trunk
in the bath room, and that not in their
usual way when a rat or mou'C was in
the question, but took little notice of it
at the time, though it was in front of
this trunk the snake was reared, and, I
have no doubt it was him they scented
I had to thank them in this instance at
least for. the timely warning. Dogs
however, will never attack a' cobra at
bay. Their instinct seems to apprise
them of the risk. During the drv
months preceding the rains the cobra
and krait often make their haunts
among the numerous rabb't burrows.
where they find temporary headquar
ters and a food supply in the intercept
ed rats. From mistaking the occupant
of a burrow, the lower castes of Hin
doos, who, like the .Chinese, are very
partial to field rats as n occasional
delicacy, sometimes get bitten
An instance of the kind came with

In an instant the man, with a terrible

yell, drew back his hand with a cobra
clinging to it. The reptile had seized
his finger, but was dispatched imme
diately and a rapid incision with a pen
knife and cautery with a hot iron in
the bitten part, along with a tight
ligature above that, saved the man s

source of great annoyance occurs
when a cobra gets into a fowl house,
where it makes terrible havoc, seeming

again to swell the number of its vic

find half a dozen fowls lying dead
