Jane Book discovered a large snake on the property of Albert Sarver on Milford St. and called her brother, Walter McCahan to the scene with his shot gun. With two shots he succeeded in killing the reptile. This snake measured more than 8 feet in length and had escaped from a carnival show recently at the fair. Fran Gilson is behind the ninth person from the left.
