Advance Hustler (Newspaper) - November 10, 1899, Advance, Indiana THE ADVANCE HUSTLER VOL. 1 ADVANCE, INDIANA, NOVEMBER lO, 1899. NO. 2. No Snake Story. MARRIAGE. Jake Waters, Frank Jones, Chas McClaine and others were witnesses to a very peculiar case of a chicken not big enough to fry makmg a good-sized lunch on a .snake over a foot long. The circus occured only a few daysago and the men ure reliable and tell this as the truth but th-iy all had the story been told them by some one else they would have doubted it so we will read and believe. Seeing is convincing and as these men were standing in front of Jones' blacksmith shop a chicken was seen in a yard on the opposite side of the street wrestling with the snake and when the chic-k(m undertook to swallow it by the tail the snj'.ke got his dander up and showed tight so the chicken walked off and gazed for a moment at the snake and ¡¡s if se<>ming to say you can't bluff me walked up and after a dog killed tile sn:ike Mr. Chicken prod^'edt d with affairs and linally downed Islr. Snake head tirstand tail last. Th'> chicken then wont off and s;it do .vn undi'r siiaue to cool off after such exertion and later n t le evenirg who n the spectators went to look for the hero it was gone and it is not known Avhetlier the chicken walked off with the snake or the snake crawled off with the chicken. Sunday afternoon at about 4 o'clok, at the residence of Bana Davis, li miles west of town, occured the marriage of Eliga A. Canaday and Nettie E. Buttrey. The ceremony was performed by by Bro. U. C.

Prof. Hovey's young ladies' band and Vitiscopic exhibition was in town Tuesda,y and Wednesday nights and of course it was like all plays it couldn't please all and no one was satisfied. It might do for a ten cent show but when it comes to thirty cents, think of how many good things a person could get to eat and v/hen the whole family goes a man could almost pay his taxes with his admissicm. The viti-scope turned out to be a magic lantern but ;is far as the band i.s concerned the ladies vrere skille d musicians and played long and steady with the greatest ease. Six ladies and one gentlemag leader composed the l:a id, no drums ceingusod.
