With another chain then thrown over- its' head to hold it immovable, in spite:: of _:its very striong- :protests,: the animal's -horn was pro perly. trimmed. An i-.even more. dange-ousig and "-delicate operation. was thik lancing 'of an abscess on .the head of a cobra. :The .method :of doing this was very: ingenious..
