Another Snake story.--Between the point of Lookout Mountain
, down the Valley of the Tennessee
, lie twenty-five miles of dead mules, in one continuous string, the head of the first carcass lying on the “quarter-deck” of the one beyond him, and so on throughout the entire distance.
Just imagine a convulsion of nature of sufficient magnitude to bury these remains as they now lie, and phancy the pheelinx of a future Agassiz
, who, in his geological researches, strikes either of the termini, and attempts to exhume the entire “snake.”
Won't it knock the socks off the saurians of the diluvian period?
Twenty-five miles of vertebrae, with two pedal arrangements every three feet! What a bully sideshow for a future circus!
It will probably be called “the old he-Copperhead of the Rebellion
period” --admission ten cents--Peace Democrats
