Dr. Griffith went over to Cow
Creek yesterday whore he was
called to see J. O. Bunyard who
had evidently been bitten by n
rattle snake, at least Mr. Bun
yard thinkH it must have been a
snako hi to, although ho never
knew when it hnppened. Last
Sunday or Monday Mr. -Bunyard
was shooting rabbits and was
standing by an old log barn
peering around tho side with his
arm stretched along tho side.
Soon after he felt a pain in tho
arm and later going to tho houso
and removing tho clothing he
found tho arm swelling with
mnrks near tho shoulder and also
Inrge purplo spots. Ho at once
bound it up but wns too ill to get
out and call help. Ho was alono
and it was 30 hours before ho
was ablo to get down to tho Mn
lian place where ho secured a
quantity of liquor. When tho
doctor was finally called Mr. Bun
yard was on the road to recovery
and Dr. Griffith states ho had
every indication of being bitten
by a rattlo snako. This is vory
unusual in this section as but
few people have over been bitten.
