Made Trouble for Jones.
A bunch of joung fellows In To-
peka have n poker club. Onco n week
they get together nnd play a little
penny game nt which nono can either
lusoiir win very much. For convenience
one of the number will be called Jones
which is not his label iu tho directory.
Joues' wife didn't want him to go hut
he finally pacified her by telling her
that ho would give her nil his win-
nlugs or that evening' play nnd
would also be homo by 11 o'clock. Ho
played four hours nnd won $1.85. Just
ns soon ns he got homo ho handed
over his winnings.
About 15 minutes later tho lest of
tho crowd wandered homo by Jones'
house. Ono of them stopped under
tho Joneses' bedroom window.
"I'll bet" ho said plenty loud
enough for Mrs. Jones to hear "I'll
just bet that old dog Jones gave his
wifo about $1.35 nnd said ho won
that and then stacked tho other $15
that ho cleaned us fellows for."
Jones Is still trying to convlnco Ills

Is holding out for thnt $t5. Tho thing

The general plnu may bo described
as being lull two stories Iu height

n house for a summer home however
sometimes do not carry the stairway

closing It with lly screens for summer
and glass sash for winter.
To get tho full benefit of n back

STUDENTS CATCH RATTLERS.
Spent Their Vacation Collecting Snake
Venom Profits of an Outing.
For the Inst threo months two stu-
dents of the Medlco-Chlriirglcal col-
lege Philadelphia havo put In their
vacation hunting rattlesnakes and cop-
perheads in the mountains near Km-
niltsburg. Thoy captuied a numbor
of large reptiles from which they ob-
tained about $1500 worth of venom
which will bo shipped to tho Patholog-
ical Institute in Paris.
They onjoyed their outing in the
mountains. A number of times they
had exciting adventures but man-
aged to escape mishap. They carried
an antidote for rattlesnake bites but
did not have occasion to use it.
In catching tho snakes they used
two sticks of moderate thickness. One
had a Y fork end while the other had
n silk lino running through guides
nndlng In a loop Tho snake was usu-
ally found In a coll ready to strike but
beforo striking the silk loop was
dropped over its head and tightened.
Tho reptile was then lifted Into a bag.
At the end of each duy'u hunt the ven-
om was extracted.
In doing this a small pjntlnum spoon
was used. Tho operator with his
hands Incased In a protective glove re.
moved the snakes from the bag by
looping them with tho stick contain-
ing the silk thread. After grasping tho
reptile ilrmly well up to the neck the
nose was removed and tho serpent's
Jnws wero forced opon by a squeeze.
The spoon was then Inserted In Its
mouth and pressed against the fangs
lu the upper Jaw causing them to
press on tho poison duct forcing the
venom through tho hollow fang Into
tho bowl of the spoon. It was seldom
that more than two or three drops ot
venom was secured from the largea
rattler. After Its vonoin was takon
the snako was killed. Tho poison was
bottled for shipment iu small phials
and securely scaled.
