1930 - Trousers Save Life

BETHLEHEM, Conn., July 25. - Homer Somers owes his life to two pairs of pants. Homer wore double trousers when he went wood-chopping to protect his limbs from the brush. Hearing a rattle, he glanced behind him just in time to see a rattlesnake strike his leg. The fangs failed to penetrate both thicknesses and Homer killed the snake.
