That Pass in the Night An
Arlington Man's Experience.
A man at Arlington the other
night was awaked by his wife, who
told him to see what that was that
she had knocked from the mos mosquito
quito mosquito bar.
. He jumped out of bed and
struck a light, and imagine his
horror to see an immense snake
crushing a venerable rat in its
folds. ',;Viv ,. ': -1
The snake, seeing nobler game,
dropped the rat, which was dead
by this time, and went for the
man, who, however, succeeded in
killing the reptile.
He then returned to his.bed and
slept the sleep of a just conqueror.
This is a genuine snake story,
as the man lived a long way from a
bar room and the snake killed was
not a spiritual one.
