DRUNKEN SNAKES. DRUNKEN SNAKES. Colonel Irvine, who lives just on the outskirts o! Richmond, Kentucky, had three barrels of Anderson county whisky 14 years old in his cellar, says a Lexington paper. He left the bungholes open to acre it faster and make it mellow. Judge of his surprise wnen lie went to show it to some visiting friends one morning to fine] that it was nearly all gone, and i:;1 one of the barrels only about two gallons were left. In this barrel over 40 large black snakes were dis- covered, all in a beastly state of intoxication, while in the dark corners of the cellars groups of rattlesnakes were coiled, some sobering up, while others were in various stages of intoxication. They had '.one in through a hole in the basement door, and, as Colo; p] Irvine was away with his family for about three months, it is supposed the snakes, not being dis- iu) bed. stayed with the whisky. and did not d;-j\w sober breath during all that time. Patrick Cunning- ham was called in, and ho succeeded in kdlirg mcr 3000 snakes on that place within two weeks, receiv- ing for his services X2 per 1000. Cunningham is rather a small man, of very dark complexion, with a thick mat of dark hair. He has keen, piercing eyes, and talks with wonderful rapidity. He was born in India, near Calcutta. His parents were Irish, and were sent out by the English Government for depart- ment work in that province. It was in the jungles ot India that Cunningham discovered from the natives the formula for making the deadly lotion so fatal to poisonous reptiles. The natives all anoint themselves with it, and are thus rendered snake-proof. Cunning- ham says he will keep on killing and driving the snakes until there is not one in the State of Kentucky if the people will pay him for it.
