This snake was a resident of the northern plains states until he arrived under less than orthodox circumstances in Alton. An Upper Alton youth is on a ranch up in that area working out the summer as a "hand." A few days ago he was mowing hay when he spotted this bull snake sunning itself. It took an unusual joining of circumstances here to make the rest of the yarn possible. Bull snakes are not inclined to move when they .are sunning, and this boy was one of those curious humans who is fond of snakes. He stopped the mower and picked the snake up, put it in a sack. This boy likes snakes, but he has a brother in Upper Alton who would walk a mile to stroke the cold, scaley hide of one. So the ranch hand brother put this bull snake in a box for shipment. It Happened that the fellow who owned the ranch was driving to Alton that weekend so he was given the box for delivery, with the added information that snakes have a kind of odor when they are in an enclosure, sjch as an automobile. So this fellow drove the hundreds of miles to Alton with the boxed snake and this rather noticeably reminder to his nose that the snake was .there. In Alton he met the father of the boy and told him about the snake. The father took the box to his office, closed the door so if the snake got out he wouldn't tour the building. Several hours' later he returned to the tightly-closed room to be met by a veritable wall of "snake smell." He knew a little more about snakes than the fellow who drove several miles with this one. A happy reptile does not smell that way. He opened the box and the bull snake, of course, had chased his last bull, if that's what they do for a living. The businessman called the son who loved snakes so much, had him remove the dead reptile from the box and discard it, sprayed the office with some kind of odor-kill and went home for the day. AiniToRoutKids, Godfrey Cops Do Rescue Instead GODFREY — Special Deputies Cliff Lee and John Hessel were called to rout youths from railroad property at the end of the Big Arch road Thursday night and it turned into a rescue job. Two young couples had gone into the heavily wooded and brushy area before dark and at nightfall couldn't find their way out, the deputies reported. A half dozen paths in the isolated area confused them and they had to be led out by the police. The deputies reminded area residents that parking or walking on the railroad property was illegal; They have been called there frequently to rout people, especially young people. 4 They said they intended to place charges against the next trespassers in that area.
