I've encountered more than one snake already this season. That brought to mind an old 'story' from February 1902, as follows:
We are indebted to our friend, Dr. J.N. Page, for the following snake story:
"A few years, ago," said he, "a gentleman of this county visited a friend living on Snake Creek, and before retiring the man of the house informed the visitor that should he see snakes during the night he need not be alarmed.
