"Snake Show."

--‘This menagerie, which was sold at auction some few weeks ago, has been again re-opened. The other day the showman was going through the feat of swallowing a rattle snake, when, after he had succeeded in getting about half of the snake's body down his throat, the reptile bit him while in that situation.--’ Washington Constitution.
