youth, and disprove their morbid

The jury in the murder case listen-

and solemnly retired. Two hours later
they filed slowly back in charge of a
court attendant and great was the
feeling of suppressed excitement in
the court room.
“Gentlemen of the jury,” said the
judge, breaking a silence that was al-
most painful in its intensity, “have
you agreed on a verdict?”
“Yes, your honor,” was the impres-

In a few places among the Berk-
shire Hills of Massachusetts the rat-
tlesnake is hunted every summer for
its oil, which often brings over two
dollars an ounce.
Being informed that “Rattlesnake
Joe,” as he is called, and his partner
Jim, captured more snakes than did
anybody else in the country I became
curious as to their method of hunting
these deadly serpents. Having made
the acquaintance of these two men I
asked permission to accompany them
on some one of their expeditions. At
first Joe resolutely refused to let me
go on the grounds, that I was sure to
be bitten or would scare away all the
snakes, either of which would inter-
fere with their work. My persistency,
however, finally prevailed and one hot
day in July found me climbing the
Berkshire Hills in Berkshire County,
wearing heavy boots and long, leath-
ern leggings. “Rattlesnake Joe” and
Jim disdained anything in the way of
protection except the two implements
of their craft. The first consisted of
a long bamboo fish pole to the end of
which was attached a long wire and
to the wire was fastened a stout pick-
erel hook; the second was a sharp
scythe. Armed with the fish pole Joe
led the way and Jim followed, bearing
the scythe upon his shoulder, while I
brought up the rear. We moved cau-
tiously through the grass so as not to
disturb the sleeping snakes which are
almost always found basking in the
Soon I witnessed an example of the
method employed by the hunters.
Coming upon a snake, Joe began to
prod it with the end of the fish pole,
taking great care to hold the hook in-
vitingly near the rattler’s head.
The snake woke up, furiously an-
gry that his rest had been disturbed,
and made a dart at the nearest irri-
tating object, which, of course was
the fish hook. Very accommodating-
ly he permitted the sharp tines to pen-
etrate his jaws. Joe now held the en-
trapped rattler at a safe distance
while Jim walked up with his scythe
and quickly severed the rattler’s head
from its body. The body was then de-
posited in a bag and we departed in
search of another snake.—Reformato-

Apropos of the completion of a to-
pographic map of that part of Somer-
set county in which lies Negro Moun-
tain, the State Department of Inter-
nal Affairs announced that this is the
highest elevation in Pennsylvania that
has been accurately determined. This
settled a mooted question, at least
Negro Mountain described as stand-
ing between the head of Blade Run
and Rub Hill Run, is 3,220 feet above
sea level. Such an altitude is as noth-
ing compared with that of the loftiest
peaks of the Rocky Mountains, the
Andes, the Alps or the Himalayas,
Even the Pyranees are several times
But height is not a fair criterion
with which to judge of the attractive-
ness of Pennsylvania’s mountains.
Though there are no snow capped
peaks, no glaciers, no perils to over-
come in ascending them, they make so
strong an appeal to the traveler with
their beauty that automobilists who
have crossed the country have said
that the scenery of Pennsylvania was
the most agreeable found anywhere
on the trip.
The verdure compensates for the
lack of altitude. Extremely high
mountain peaks are barren of vegeta-
tion, and while they are impressive
they are not beautiful. There is rest-
fulness in the mountains of Pennsyl-
vania, whereas a wild, savage spirit
dominates the Rocky Mountains and
other ranges of great latitude.
Like an oasis in the desert is the
sight of the ridges that cross Penn-
sylvania after a sojourn in the fiat
country of the Middle west.
