Indians Popped Corn * 1 Popcorn was raised by the Indi ans long before Columbus arrived in the Western hemisphere>Jt became an important commercial crop about 1880. Formerly it was sup posed that the popping of corn was caused by the volatilization of oil in the grain.

A new rattle is required each time that a snake sheds its skin and sev eral rattles may be added annually, the California Fish and Game com mission reports.

Medium sized snakes, during their second or third year, often gain two rattles annually. Adults most frequently add only one rattle a year, but sometimes gain two.
