"I have discovered a sure bait for
bas3," said an old fisherman recent-
ly, t#but mind you, don t you put
this in your paper. It is snakes'
tails. Everybody has observed
that the tail of a snake don't die
until sundown, but keeps wviggling
all day after the rest of the snake
has climbed the golden staias. Now
bass, above all iish, want a lively
bait. The idea struck me one da}T
when I was fishing. A fresfc-killed
snake was lying in the weeds while
its tail was keeping up a lively
agitation. I took my knife, cut the
tail oil. put it on the hook and
threw out about thirty feet from the
shore. I no sooner tightened up my
line than I had a vigorous bite, aud
in five seronds I was pulling away
on a three pounder. In half an hour
I had landed eight bass, averaging
two pounds each. The ninth one

ceased. I tried other bait, but only
got one fish in the next four hours.
I then started out to hunt snakes.
I found one after an hour's scarch,
cut oil his tail, and it lasted me for
five bass, which I pulled out inside
of 20 minutes; but I had a fine bas-
ket full and was ready to quit.
"Since then I have a couple of
country boys in my employ, who
catch alive and bring to me ail the
snakes they see, and I now have no
trouble in getting all the bass I
want every time I go fishing. At
first I killed the snakes and cut off
their tails, but then I made an im-
portant discovery which will able
me to fish all summer with a dozen
snakes. J. found that by cutting of]
the tail while the snake was living
and putting a little cosmoline on the
wound it not only healed, but that
in about three weeks' time the snake
would grow an entirely new tail,
just as liveljr as the old one. Bu*
mind, don't put this in the paper. It
you do snakes will soon be as scarce
as they are in Ireland, and by the
time the season is over there will
be no bass left/'
