Texas Farm and Ranch
If Texas prairies excel in! grandeur
and lexas flowers in beauty, the 1 ex
as tarantula is certainly the! type aud
em bod inn ht of satanic .ugliness and
viciousuess. At least, so thought the
writer at his first view of one in a
state of nature. This was an uncom
monly large specimen, standiug full
four inches high as he marched thro'
the grass by the roadside, with all the
lordly indepudence of a cowboy at a
country dance. He paid no attention
to man or horse, as I rode and walk
ed all around him, inspecting him
minutely oirall sides. At length, a
tap of a switch on the grass near him
roused his ire. Springing upon a tus
sock of grass, he rose savagely upon
his hind legs like a bear ready for a
fight. At this point, I thought it
safest lo put him "out of harm's way,"
which was accomplished by a single
sharp stroke on the neck (or waist.
I if you prefer the term), cutting him
fairly in two. Ihe blow also severed
vein, thus poisoning the stream of
blood on its way to the heart. The
unfortunate woman died in a few
The ordinary result is to kill the
flesh for some distance around the bite;
this then sloughs out, leaving a sore
which takes months to heal.
The above description refers to the
large black tarantula, which lives al
most exclusively in the "black lands."
The writer has heard a great deal
about the smaller and less venomous
grey or sand tarantula, but as he has
never seen one, in a residence of five
years in a part of the State where
they were said to abound, he has con
cluded that the name was applied to
the large gray prairiej spider a very
respectable, well-behaved gentleman,
with about as much! resemblance to
the black tarantula, sisasheppurd dog
has to a wolf.
There is a Texas spider, however
that, in proportion to size, is far more
venomous than the, tarantula. Its
poison seems to per vaide every portion
of its body, and if crushed on the hu
