of having polite clerks and selling

called to the spceial needs of tbe poor
people, and selected and bought goods
at Bueh prices that they can suit every

Mr. Csleman Goin. of .Ararat, in
this county, lost week, killed a imin-
Bler rattlesnake near his home. The
skin when taken off, measured five
feet in length, and held a peck of
bran. Tbe snake bad eighteen rat
tles, and bad swallowed a full grown
squirrel a short time before killed.
Captain James Boyd beats tbU.
His boys last week while pnlling fod
der on his place near Stuart, saw a
large rattlesnake run under a ledge
of roek in the field. Tbe boys tnoved
a garge rock, when their astonished
gale, they beheld a fnll nest of rat
tlesnakes; they went for them and
soon dispatched seventeen—two very
large ones, with filtecn rattlos each,
the others running in size from twelve
to eighteen inches in length.
Mr. Green Ingnfm.of the Meadows
of Dan. also reports a largo snake
killed by one of his neighbors. This
one seems to he tbe ohampion snake,
as it is elkiuod by good authority
that it wu ton feet long. This u a

kinds of eereals.
