WELL, AT LEAST WE GOT A TROPHY - Several of Dublin's finest policeman were out on patrol near Northview Cemetery one Sunday afternoon. The participants in a card game of skin noticed the boys in blue and skedaddled as fast as a rabbit running from a pack of beagles. It was then that two of the pursuers
hurdled a big rattlesnake, coiled and ready to strike. A third man missed in his hurried attempts to kill the venomous serpent. Officer Meade turned and fired a point blank and bull's eye shot in the triangular head of the ten-rattle rattler. With no prisoners to be found anywhere, the men brought back their trophy which the hung on the wall of the fire department. Macon Telegraph, August 20, 1919.
