1886 Humeston, Iowa "The condition of
Mr. Sylvester Sams, a well-known citizen of this county, excites considerable interest.
Two years ago Mr. Sams, while walking over his farm, was bitten by a rattlesnake.
He immediately resorted to the native remedy in such cases - whisky, of which he partook copiously.
Nothing more was thought of the matter until six months ago, when Sams betrayed symptoms of St. Vitus' dance.
He is never still, not even in his sleep, twitching his muscles and moving incessantly. Later he
has developed violent symptoms, so much so that he beats his wife and family and whoever comes
within reach. He now acts like a man with a well-defined case of rabies, only, instead of barking,
he makes a rattling sound. He has been taken to Canton jail,
where a strong guard can be kept over him until the result of his case can be reached."
