A Simko Swallows IllaukeU
Snakes have been known to swnllow live
dogs and rabbits, says Tho Cloveland Plntn
Dealer, but tho narrator of snake stories has
nover yet had tho hardihood to uublushingly
mako tho nstcrtion thnt snakes can feed nnd
thrive ou blankets. Uut future snnku his
torians may lucludo that story among the
snake's accomplishments, for w Ithout stretch
ing the facts a particle tho twcnty-flvo foot
snnko now liolug lotted nnd caressed by Mrs.
William Doris in tho dime museum got uwny
for a light lunch with a doublo woolen
blanket. Tho snnku tiad not tasted food for
some tlmo, nnd Mrs. Doris left him crawling
about ou the t-oft, white blanket, and wlion
she returned tho blanket was gono, but his
snakeship's tlguro was not qulto as prdtty as
it used to be. Ho was nil bunions, knots and
bolls, ami bad evidently grown much stouter,
when the truth dawned upon Mrs. Doris that
tho reptile bad swallowed ber ?o blanket.
Medical aid was summonod,aud ho wus given
a keg of beer with which to wash the blanket
down, and at last accounts ho was as chipper
and frisky as a 3-year-old. Tho doctors claim
thnt It will bo Just a easy for tho snako to
digest the blanket as the live chickens nnd
rabbits, feathers, fur, hopes and nil, on which
ho lives. A new blanket was furnished him,
but this tlmo It was unllcd down to tho tloor
of tho cago. Tho blanket has been working
Its way down tho snake's body, and lato last
night it was In a fair way of gettlug near hit
tall. It Is proposed to cousult n surgeon
with n vlow of cutting a holo near tho snake's
toll and pulling tho blanket out rather than
wait for tho uatural process of digestion.
A New Start In Sucnr.
The sugar industry of this country hoi
taken on entirely now start, owing to the
employment of now methods In manufactur
ing. The methods now In use greatly lescn
tho cost of production, and an ordinary crop
can bo worked up and sold for flro cents er
pound, leaving a handsomo profit for tho pro
ducer, Tho now process of manufacture 1
attracting tho attention of agriculturists in
tho uorthcra nnd central states, ns well as
thoso of tho southern ortlon of tbo country,
By tho new method of ovaporatlng tho cane
raised In tho northern states can bo modo a
profltablo crop, although It contains less sac
charine matter than that raised in tho south.
Southern sugar cano, under tho present pro
cess, will yield about 200 pounds of sugar to
tho ton, while tho northern yields about ISO
pounds to tho ton. Tbroo sugar manufacto
ries aro now being erected In Kansas, with
ovory prospect of success for their projectors,
and tho Industry will doubtless oxtoud to

there, but had what thoy called 'a glorious
