A settler named Took, on tho south fide of the Klamath river about one and one-half miles from Keno, was digging a well, and at a depth of sixty feet he struck a formation from which he panned out $1.50 in gold with an ordinary skillet. The gold was prob ably from the stratum of blue gravel, which underlies a large portion of the lake and Klamath river country, and it may lead to the development of some good drift mines there.

One new $100,000 gunboat is the only vesnel provided for. Hie total appropriation Is z.OJO.OOO ess man last year. The best informed people believe there will lm an extra session not later than the middle of April. It is believed the Democratic leaders think this, and for that reason they are not attempting to crowd some matters of legislation they iei are necessary.

The appropri ation for the current fiscal year is $23,- o-j.i.L'wi, and the estimates lor next year J.WM. J here is no appropriation in the bill for the proposed naval review next May. The Senate, therefore, will have to be looked to for the approprla tion to carry out the promise implied in our invitation to foreign nations. One new gunloat is authorised, and lor the payment of vessels heretofore author red to be bmlt $0,150.( 00 is appropri ated, including $250,000 under the head of "equipment."

Secretary Foster of the Treasury De partment has been notitied that the American tlig will be formally raised niHin the Inman steamers City of New York and City of Paris at New York on Washington's birthday. The event will be celebrated with great pomp. Many distinguished people have been invited. The President, who regards the act ol the City of New York and the City of Paris in taking American register and sailing under the Stan and Stripes as the crowning act of his administration, will himself pull up the flags. He will be accompanied to New York by all the memlxt of his Cabinet, and on that oc casion will also be present the members of the Senate and House Naval Affairs Committees, distinguished members of Congress and the principal otlicersof the Navy Department as thoir invited gueate. When the Senate Committee on For eign Relations reported the Knssian ex t' edition treaty, it was with an amend ment that attempts to murder the Czar or any memler of the royal family shall he considered non-political ofTenseB, re gardless of what the motive of the crim inal might be, and that being non-political they should be extraditable. This clause was productive of a great deal of debate. Turpie was the champion for the right of asylum, but the committee was finally sustained. Turpie was not satisfied with this action, and intro duced a resolution recently intended as an offset to the terms of the treaty. The resolution declares it is the sense of the Senate that jurisdiction in what is known as political offenses ought not to be extra territorial, and no treaty should be approved which proposes to take from the courts of the United States the right to determine whether or not ail offense is political under the law of nations. Business men in public life fear that a financial disturbance is near at hand. It is said that Secretary Foster has pre pared to avoid any difficulty in the Treas ury by purchasing gold by issuing an enormous amount of bonds. As high as $200,000,000 rumor places the amount. This statement is made flatly, and goes so far as to say that the bonds have al ready been placed and an agreement reached for their immedia'e exchange for gold, the arrangement being made in anticipation of the result of the silver . vote in the House, which it is feared will precipitate a crisis. Whatever may be clone by the present Secretary of the Treasury, it is now conceded that Cleve land will early call an extra session of Congress to repeal the Sherman law and by his own personal power and actual patronage and persuasion force the bill through, beginning by having the House organized under common-sense rules, which will bring the House to a vote.

Th: Net Loss of Gold to This Country for the Past Six Years New Cotton Mills Started. Our production of pig iron in 1892 was 9,1)7,000 tons a very large per cent greater than that of England. Bank clearances are heavier thus far in 1893 than they were in 1892. and in 1892 they beat all previous records.

' Tho popular idoa w that a rattlo naka in a curwo to mankind and of absolutely no twe, except ios8ibljr to give the male contingent in camping and picnic parties an excuse for pro- fridine; a well known serpent bite antidote. Andrew Akers, a white haired ex-miner, who occasionally comes to town from his lonely home way tip in the San Bernardino moun tain, tells us that the rattlesnake is, In its way, a blessing to mankind, i "I reckon I ought to know some Ihing about the serpents," said he th other day, "for I have earned tbw whole living of mysfc'f and wife for Bereral years in catching rattlers and getting the oil out of them. I know Borne folks are mighty scary about rattlesnakes, and for one who don't know about the critters' ways it is pretty risky business getting fanged by a rattler. I occasionally get nerv ous among the rattlers, but I have to keep a steady nerve and quick eye in my business. " Tha nTil iwrnflomnn folia na fTiaf V & had always heard how valuable pur rattlesnake oil is, and that several years ago he got the oil from a dozen snakes that he came across in his woodcutting operations in the moun tains. When the summer was over he had twenty ounces, and got two dollars an ounce for all of it from a Los Angeles druggist. He has 6inca made a business of hunting rattle snakes up and down the mountain sides and through the canyons. He catches from 150 to 200 snakes in a summer, and generally gathers from $300 to $400 worth of oil from them. The market price for the product is two doUars an ounce, and there ia little fluctuation. Rattlesnake oil is used in rheumatic cures and in oint ments for some skin diseases. The oil when sold has a pearly white color and is free from any odor. It tastes much like tallow. A good sized rattlesnake will furnish from one to two ounces of oiL "How do I catch the snakest WelL that is easy enough. I wear boots up above my knees so as to protect me from any rattler I may tread upon, and I always go with a strong forked stick or club in my hand. I have to keep my wits about me constantly, and to think quick when I am in a snake locality and hear a rattle. I always try to get the rattlers by putting the fork of my stick over their neck as quick as a flash, and then I have the critter just where I want him. I next strangle the suake by pressing my fingers down upon the neck. I get the rattlers in this way so as to keep them from biting themselves, and thereby letting the poison into the oil that I am after. In nine cases out of ten rattlesnakes will bite themselves if they have a chance, and they are the smartest things alive, except human beings. Once in awhile 1 get the rattlers bv Bmashing them in the head, but I don't like that way, for it's more dangerous and the oil is not so good. 'Have 1 ever been bitten? Yes, five times, and I suffered so much the last time that all the money on earth would not induce me to be poisoned so again. That was four years ago, and I can feel pains from it to this day. I don't believe any one ever fully recovered from a does of genuine rattlesnake poison. It is the most awful stuff on earth. I have seen great big cows die of a drop of the poison in an hour's time." Pomona (Cal.) Progress. IOcomotlTe Fog: Signal. An improved method of signaling: to the drivers of locomotives in thick weather has been brought forward in England. On the locomotive it self is fixed an electric bell, to which is attached a contact device, which operates by means of a movable bar which is associated with each signal box. When the engine passes such a signal box contact is made and the bell rings, and by the number of .beats upon the gong the engins oriver knows whether to proceed or whether to stop. The apparatus does not intef ere with any existing signaling arrangements, and would be quite automatio in action pro jrided that the signal man attended to his levers just as if the weather Was clear. London Letter. Aa Aneodot of Whittle-. A friend in conversation with Mr. jWhittier, the poet, remarked that he was about to contract to furnish a lot of oak timber for the govern ment gunboats, and asked him if he jthought it was in consistence with the peace doctrines of the Quaker de nomination. Without saying any thing calculated to decide the ques tion the two arrived at their parting jplace, when Mr. Whittier, shaking bis friends hand, said, "Moses, if thee does furnish any of that oak timber thee spoke of, be sure that it all sound.
