*\Vhen Rosanna Mullikin was young she made her breakfast on bread and milk, in
summer, out-of-doors. There being a grove near the house she would go there with
cup and spoon to eat. She was known to come Isack to the house frequently for more
milk ; this excited curiosity, and she was watched. What was the surprise of her parents
when they saw her sitting on a log feeding a large snake in front of her with the bread and
milk ; and when she did not feed fast enough the snake would try to put its head into the
cup ; then she would rap it with her spoon until it drew back. Her parents were horrified
at such a spectacle and quickly put a stop to this singular transaction. As the girl soon
became sick and died, superstitious old dames said the snake had charmed her. At any
rate, the snake got the "lion's share " of the food, while for want of proper nourishment,
the maid grew weak and went down to death.
