CREEPING HORNED THINGS.
Lizards, Bugs and Snakes In Nevada
All Have Horns, Declares a
Li da Eesident.
"Everything that creeps has
horns down in Nevada," says J..
II. Price of Lida, Nevada, in the
Portland Oregonian. "The lizards.
bugs and snakes all have horns.
We have a species of the rattle
snake down in Nevada which I do
not believe is found in any other
par; of the United States. It
never crows to be more than a
foot long, and is very slender.
"It has a small horn on the top
of its head and one rattle attached
to the end of its tail. A bite from
this small reptile nearly always
results in death. Its' venom is
said to be even more poisonous
than that of the common rattle
snake. You take one of these
common prairie snakes and you
have a chance to escape, as they
will never attack you unless an
gered. Besides they
plenty of time to get
their rattle can be ,
heard quite a ways off. ;
"But not so with the small rat
tlesnake we have down there. If
man goes within three or four feet
of that reptile it will attack him.
it will sound the alarm with its
attle, but it is so small that it is
rarely heard. Our rattler can
spring at least three times its
ength, so you can see that you
lave to be very careful when wan
lering about in the sagebrush.
"Just before I came to Portland

There is no doubt but that lots of

They neglect to take the proper

Poor Sailor Found a Lump of Amber -
gris Valued at $12,000 Story
of Life on Sea.
Out of a job and depending on
the flotsam of the bav for fuel and
its deeps for fish to warm and feed
the patient wife at home, and then!
to pick up a 12,000 lump of am
bergris, his ownership of which
no man may successfully dispute,
is the experience of William F.
Getchell, of 1371 Goss streetOak
In the early, days Getchell fol
lowed the sea, but late years
have found him slow in re
sponding to the call of "top
men aloft," so he has been
forced to eke out a living by doing
odd jobs around the Southern Pa
cific ferry yards, ostensibly a
painter, but of late work has been
slack and money scarce. Fuel and
food had to be provided, so he
turned to that which had always
provided it in the past the sea.
Getchell secured a leaky old boat
a few hooks and lines, and with
these took to the bay, fishing and
keeping a weather eye open for

knew where the tide rip, racing
past the island cast its flotsam
on the shore. There he was almost
sure to find wood. .
, They wer e near the island when
Getchell sighted an ash gray col
ored mass .bobbing about on the
waves. A landsman would have
passed it without a second look
but a sailor man passes nothing
until he "Knows" what it is,
Getchell headed the boat toward
the greasy-looking object and
poked it with an oar. The next in
stant the boat was shipping water
as he leaned far over the gun
wale, his fingers clutching into
the jelly-like lump, as he tried to
drag it into the boat. With-the
help of Ackerman this was accom
plished and the quivering, stink

soon lying at the bottom of the

Rice That. Is Thrown Away in Tons.
According to the vicar of a Bir

rjounds of rice is thrown at the
brides and bridegrooms every
week at. each of the 75 churches
in Birmingham and its suburbs
and the 8,000 pounds of rice thu3

of very great use in. feeding the
recently famine-stricken people
of India. Ther are over 20,000
places of worship in England.
and if this estimate be true for
the other churches of the coun
try, then it follows that nearly
90 tons of rice are yearly thrown

a cost of oyer 4,000.

Balaklava I was in a tent with

them returned at night. I rode
through the charge on the left file
but one, the outside man being
ailed Herbert. We had not gone
far before Herbert was killed by
cannon ball. A moment or two
after my right-hand man had his
head taken clean off by a round
shot. His trunk kept upright on
the horse for several yards and
then fell over near me. Men and
horses now began to fall very fast,

us the feeling was short lived. We

but when the'-smoke' cleared awav

to be British troops were in real

faced about and rushed into them.
There was an awful clash of
swords and almost before we
could realize it we had cut right
through them. , This opened a
