BLACK AND YELLOW



BLACK AND YELLOW—“Red and black, venom lack; black and yellow, kill a fellow” is the old saying on how to distinguish the difference between a harmless king snake and a poisonous coral snake. James Stewart holds a 24-inch coral which he killed last Tuesday near his barn in the Praesel Addition. The snake was called to his attention by a neighbor, Ruben Melcher, who spotted the snake while on his evening walk.
