The big snake was 40 inches long, and carried a string of ten rat- tles. The little snakes were each twelve inches long. A householder in this town has always admired that busy bird, the cliff swallow, and in particular his cleverly construct- ed bottle-shaped nests. However, he recently had occa- sion to closely examine a colony of abandoned mud swallow nests; spiders by the score had moved in. I could tell him that while spiders appear to be poor neighbors, the insects the spi- ders ate out of house and home are worse. In the old days, it was d and proven that one of the insects to be in such swallow nests was the then more or less common bed bug. Years ago I checked with a biologist some such look- ing bug found in the nest of a tree swallow. To my untrained eye it was a bed bug. The scien- tist said no; merely a wild uncultivated cousin. It did not bother to live on people. W. C. Pritt, of Droop, brought be atab0ntas time i| in a couple of real homely bugs. The reference book is out of pocket, but I happen to know the answer. They are mole crickets. They live on the roots of plants. They have able feet to dig and able jaws to eat. They seldom come up in the light. The mole cricket bears no family resem- blance to the cheerful cricket on the hearth. The crow is a decided expen- sive nuisance in these parts this year. They pulled up the corn and then pulled up the replants; they came visiting back for roasting ears and have stayed for the maturing corn. One farmer on the Jerico Road had some wheat to lod'ge and go down. Crows ganged in. He and a neighbor used a caller to bring the black dickenses in range. They got upwards of a score, before the birds got wise and moved back to Bucks Mountain. They tell the tale on an owner of a big grazing outfit on Laurel Creek, that he has called up and killed so many crows this sea- son, that the minute he sounds his patent caller, all crows in hearing distance rise up and wing their way to Black Mountain.

Page7-- be/l0tabontas imes -- September 11, 2003 Swago Mountain. Here Mr. Moore had occasion to take down his gun, which he some- times carries for snakes and groundhogs. In less than half an hour he missed his watch. He expected to find it at the mouth of the cave, but there was no sign of it. The other day some teenage boys were exploring the cave. They squeezed into a small, dry side passage. There in a pile of bones and other trash their light reflected the bright case of the watch. It was in per- fect condition. Of course, the sign is that a coon was attracted by the bright metal of the watch and carried it back to his den in the cave. Mill Point--Florna Seabolt, of Stamping Creek, while hunt- ing ginseng near the High Rocks, last Friday morning, got a most unpleasant surprise. He was just about to step on a big black rattlesnake. It had eight rattles. Mrs. S. C. Rose, of Campbelltown, brought in a freak in the way of a tomato plant which bore both deep red and bright orange colored toma- toes on the same branch. You have guessed it. This plant came from home saved seed from a garden in which grew both red, pink and orange colored toma- toes. Mrs. Rose also gave us a fine big tomato which weighs a pound and twelve ounces. It is of the 'tree' variety----the good group with the broad leaves, and good sized fruits, lots of meat and few seeds. But, you know what again, tomato seed does not reproduce true to form if there is more than one kind in the neighborhood. DEATHS Miss Blanche Dean, age 59. Rachel Ella Payne Lewis, 87.
