very severe attack of heart disease,
on affection to which lie has been
subject for some lira?, nnd sent up
post haste for Dr. Or me, bla family
physician, who, on his return, ex

Rattlesnake vs. Whisky.
Oo Friday last, as Geo. Terhune,
a teamster, was ou his way from
this city to North Bloonilield, aud
bail reached a poiut just beyond
tbe residence of John Dunn, Selby
Flat, he stopped at a spring to get
a drink of water. Stooping, he
placed bis right hand on the
cround iv order to maint.iin his
equilibrium, when instantly a rat
tlesnake darted out from some
bushel and witli its deadly fangs
pierced Hi - forefinger on the mid
dle joint. Mr. Terhuuu killed the
snake, Which was three feet in
length anil hail eight rattles and
one button; Bushing to tlie wagon
he drew the bung from a keg of
whisky that was aboard aud com
menced to drink the contents. He
drunk all that he possibly could ol
the strong spirits.and then, taking
some tobacco from his pocket, sat
urated It in whisky, making a
poultice, in which be wrapped tbe
injured hand. He then started bis
team, and from then until he
reached the Kenebeo House be
continued to drink. There is no
doubt but that be drank enough of
the ardent to set half of Nevada
City crazy drunk; but it bad uo
effect on him. He was as sober as
a Judge when he reached the last
named place. Then he took off the
bandage, occasionally stopping for
another swallow of whisky. The
flesh around the wound hail turned
green. Then ho drank and again
replaced the bandage. It was no
use—the drunk wouldn't come, but
what was much belter, tha fatal
effects of the rattlesnake's bite had
been counteracted. Mr. Terhune
was in town yesterday, as well and
healthy aud sober as ever.
A Tribune reporter asked Thur
low Weed: "Whom do you legard

The old man blushed modestly aud
