Over Her Head

Schafer.—Cauterization with a hot poker is believed to have saved the life of Miss Sackette, a homesteader living 15 miles southeast of here, when she was bitten by a rattlesnake a few days ago. Usual antidotes for the poison being lacking, her sister thought of the cauterization method, which was tried with evidently unusual success.
