LOCAL WEATHER CHANGES. Signs of Approaching Storms at Sac ramento. Mow Thoir Coming Maj* be Known Be forehand—lnteresting Article on tho Subject. a In the last monthly bulletin issued by liirector Barwick of tho State Weather IService appears the following article, pre pared by authority of the Chief of tho Weather Bureau at Washington, I). C: A storm of any degree of severity need Dot !>o looked for, anticipated, or ex pected, unless brisk to high southerly or southeasterly wiuds blow at tho rate of Irom twenty to thirty miles per hour, an.l the clouds move from the southeast, ■ ■■! oinpaiiied by a tailing barometer. The storm will last as long as the clouds move from the southeast. When tho cloud movement veers to the south tho weather becomes showery, whilo the \v>nd's direction may still remain in the southeast. When the clouds begin mov ing Irom the southwest, the storm is practically ovor and clearing or cessation of rain may be looked for. The wind's direction lollows the cloud movement slowly, lagging behind several hours; that is, the cloud movement veers to tlie South j.nd southwest before the wind does. The approach of a storm here, as else where, is usually preceded from twelve to twenty-four and sometimes thirty-six hours by cirrus clouds. If the storm center moves from the northwest in a southerly direction, then the cirrus clouds soon form into cirro-stratus, and yery frequently before the approaching Storm affects the barometer. Tho wind is usually from the north during iho day and from the south at night, and as the storm approaches tho wind will remain in the south, increas ing in velocity, and at the same time the moisture in the atmosphere will very . tibly increase. If the storm is one ol severity the clouds will begin moving rapidly from tho southeast, desTccnding toward the-earth's surface uutil they are quito low, forming "scud" clouds, from which precipitation soon begins, This gen erally follows in from eighteen to thirty six hours after the tirst cirrus clouds make their appearance. At times cirrus an.l cirro-stratus clouds may form and give every indication of rain, but unless brisk to high southeasterly winds blow, no rain of any account need bo looked lor. A storm center to the north of Cal ifornia passing eastward will cause cioinls to form and tho barometer to fall, with Iresh to brisk southerly winds blow ing, but if the clouds move from the southwest, the observer can safely prodict bul little rain will be precipitated, unless the clouds change their course and move from the southeast. ihese are the general signs and indtca - of our severe winter storms. In the l eginning of the rainy season in Soptciii i er and i irt..!ier, as well as at the end, in May and -lune, tliese signs or indications are not always to be roiiod upon, unless .: oinetei talis rapidly and to quito a low point. Even then it sometimes ends in wind, with littlo if any precipitation, ially ht the barometer begins to rise rapidly, i Generally speaking, in Septem ber and May, when threatening weather appears and clouds hover over the Sierra Nevada Mountains and move down upon the valley from a northeast direction, slight local showers may be predicted without laii. Hailstorms, with thunder and light ning, usually pass from the soutiiwest to rtheast, while the wind's direction will he iresh from the southeast, i >cca sionally thunder is heard and lightning s.en in the north, northeast, oast, aud southeast, with heavy bauks of euinulo clouds or thunder-heads hovering over the Sierra Nevada Mountains. A.s a il thing these storms are local und confined to tho region in which they A great many times lightning will he seen, but no thunder heard. At su ii times these thunder-head clouds will bo from in to .in above the horizon. It is at the closing of tho rainy season, in March, April and May, and that be ginning ot tho rainy season, in Septem ber, October and November, that thunder and lightning storms are the most iium i and of a much heavier variety. In izteen years this station has beon 1 iJulyi, 1877, to June 30,1893), thero have been recorded fifty-seven electrical storms, including those where sheet lightning was seen at a great dis tance from the fetation and uo thunder heard. Of those whicii passed ovor this station and gavo heavy hail and rain with vivid lightning and loud thunder, thirty occurred in the months ot March, April and May, as follows: Nine in March, .v April and thirteen in May. In lonths of September, October and November sixteen were observed, as fol low--: Ten in September, four In Octo ber and two in November, leaving the re maining eleven to be distributed among tho other six months of tlie year, as fol lows: Two iv January, oue iv Febru ary, three in June, throe in July, one in August and one m Dei ember. There is occasionally a cold, drizzling rain when the wind is blowing from four to six and eight miles an hour from the north, but Invariably on such occasions oudg w iii be noticed moving from a southerly and generally southeasterly direction, The records show that the greater number of our thunder and lightning storms in May and September move from the southwest toward the northeast, and Irom tlie southeast toward the northwest. Those from the south re usually accompanied by surface v in.is from the southeast, aud those storms which pass from tho southeast to ward the northwest have surface winds from some northerly quarter; that is. ■ical storms aro accompaniod by surface winds blowing in an opposite di rection to that from which the storm is traveling, especially those which come Crom the southeast and pass to the north- — . -» .

A Story of Cold Nerve -Developed Under Stress ol" Circumstances.. New York Sun: "As a general thing." said an old '4'Jer, "tbe tenderfoot wasn't in it with the bud man of the mining camp, aud it wasn't natural to expect that he should be, but occasionally there did appear one who could more than hold his own. I recall a man named Caleb Fin by, who came to Dream (lulch in its earlier days, when that region was full of bad men. lie was a tall, spare young man, with a head full of brains, and ho was quick and businesslike in every thing that he did, but still ho was not a man that the generality of meu would havo picked out as tlie possessor of nerve. "Mr. Finny set out one day to go to the neighboring camp of Devil's Claw Canyon. As ho was proceeding along the road he suddenly came upon, or, rather there came suddenly upon him, a man who asked him to throw up his hands. It was Big Bill Belter, the terror of Devil's Claw Canyon. *''I throw 'em up. said Mr. Finby, cheerfully, as he raised them, 'because you ask me to, and I don't want to seem impolite. But at tho same time I must inform you that you are taking au en tirely unnecessary precaution; my guv isn't loaded.' "Mr. Belter was himself a man of fine gall, and his recognition of that quality ill another awakened in him a certain de gree of admiration. Quick to perceive tlie change in Mr. Belter's manner, faint and undefined as it was, Mr. Finby went on: " 'But I realize now. as I have not dono beforo, tho carelessness of going about in this way practically unarmed, and if yon'll permit mo I'll load now as a guard against future contingencies.' "Mr. Finny's hands came down .as he uttered the concluding words, for he had seen tbe hand that hud held the pistol leveled against him fall slowly as the Terror listened with a sort of astonished amusement. "Mr. Finby had in his hip pocket a pistol aud in his waistcoat pocket a box of cartridges, which lie had bought in deference to the advice of friends, but which he had never brought together into useful conjunction, partly becauso ho was not personally bloodthirsty, and partly becauso of overconfidenoe in the human race. But ho proceeded now to load with perfect calmness, but in his heart amazed at tlie utter lack of precau tion now displayed by Mr. Belter, who stood leaning against a tree and laugh ing, apparently quite overcome by the broad humor of the situation. Suddenly it was discovered that .Mr. Finby's gun was being held iv such a position that Mr. Bolter could, without inconvenience, look square iuto the muzzle of it, and Mr. Belter discovered also at the samo moment in Mr. Finby's eye a iitrnt wliose meaning no sane man could by any possibility misunderstand. Mr. Belter was a man with a vast apprecia tion of the humorous, but not even his sense of humor could discover the laiutest gleam of fun in the situation as at present developed, and he suffered tho ten 1 rloot to proceed without furthor molestation." -____— .—_ THE GLOVE UPON THAT HAND. Lot It Xot Ue a Blinding Murvel ln Prlsnnitlc Hues. If you have a taste for emulating tho rainbrow in gorgeousness, so far as may be, the giovors havo dono all in their power this season to aid'you. Gloves of cv rv shade of greeu,<*t'roin sea-foam to apple, dangle beioro jour eyes. Gloves of pink and gloves of purplo lie in their cases, wooing the lover of color to buy them. Gloves of lemon color and gloves of orange are not lacking. Thore are gloves as still with embroid ery as the old-fashioned christening robes used to be. There aro gloves that glitter with steel and gloves that gleam with bronze. There aro gloves with silk of divers hues worked up the back. And these aro all gloves that the self-respect ing woman will avoid. It is almost unnecessary to remark that thoy are vulgar. Sometimes with a gown of green or heliotrope it is permissible to your gloves of exactly the same shade, although even then quite as good an eilect could have been gained by carefully choosiug a shade of gray or m'odo or tan that harmonised with the gown. Any thing; that makes tlie hand—even though it be a beautiful oue—remarkable is to be shunned. Put into your glove-box some black suede gloves, which havo a happy faculty of being appropriate with almost any costume. Put in some soft gray gloves and some mode color ones. Add a pair of heavily stitched reddish-brown glaco kid to wear with your severely made dark walking suit, a couple of pairs of white washable kid ones for wear with your gingham dresses, and a pair of driv ing gauntlets, and you will always be well aud correctly gloved. — -♦- Silver and Wages. [Los Angeles Express.] Some men who work for wages have an ides that freo coinage of silver would be a good tiling for them as well as for the owners of silver mines. This could oniy be true if free coinage would raise wages or would add to the purchasing power ot the wages now paid. Now tiie chief ad vocates of free silver declare that tiie effect of it would bo to raiso tho value of silver bullion to a parity with gold. If ithis be true, and sil.er money is to be ; made and kept as good as gold, there i would be no reason to demand more j wages. But if silver money is not to lie das gold, tho worker for wages would sufler, lor a silver dollar would not buy as much as it does now. Cer tainly no change in our coinage laws cau mako silver money any better than gold. Advocates of free silver may argue that free ■ oinago would benefit workingmen by making money more plentiful ana ising the employment of labor. But tlie fact is that if the mints of the United ! - were kept running to their full ! capacity tney could not coin silver dollars Easter than at the rate of 30,000,000 or 40, --"o.>o,imo a year. Under the present law for tho purchaso of silver bullion tha certiti eate-s issued amount to s..|,iioo,ii,io a year. lt is far easier to keep silver certificates j in circulation than the coined silver dol lars. Thore are upward ol 300,000,000 sil ver dollars in the Treasury now, ■ j which silver c«rti_icates are outstai ; The certificates are more convenient for : circulation than the coin. It has impracticable to keep more than about ,000 silver dollars in circulation as i coin. If more bo forced into the channels of circulation it is speedily carried bao__ to tho Treasury. ___. .— A new thing in the surgical world isa curious brass button recently designed by a surgeon for the purpose of joining ier two ends of an intestine that has i been cut.

Tiie I'resident does not appear to bave laid this rulo down in so many words, but it is a logical deduction from bis action. It is noteworthy that be has not sent nominations to the Senate. Members of Congress who have called upon him with reference to changes in their local offices say that thej- have met with a very chilling reception.

Alter lunch tho President and Colonel Lamont were driven to Dr. Bryant's house, were the latter joined the party, and they were driven to the Victoria Hotel, where Colonel Lamont left the car riago. The carriage was then drivou to tho dock of the Fall Kiver Line to take the steamer Puritan. As the President alighted it was noticed that his step was not as elastic as when ho came from Buz zard's Bay last week. His eyes looked heavy. The President immediately wont to his cabin. Dr. Bryant was askod: "Is it not I strange, doctor, that the President should leave the seat of Government while Con- j gross is engaged with legislation of a vi tally important character?" He replied that ho was not prepared to criticise the President. "Perhaps a domestic event is requiring his presence?" "It would be unprofessional on my part to speak of that matter." The colored porter who waited on the President said just before the boat de parted at 5 o'clock that the President was undressing to go to bed. The improssion prevailed on the Puritan tbat tne Presi dent's condition is far from well. . NOVEL SUBSTITUTE FOR SILK. A Process by Which lt Is Mndo From Cobwebs and Wood. A prominent revenue officer of Mont pellier, France, nauied lion, conceived the idea of using cobwebs as a substitute for silk. Tho notion wus uot a now one. In 1066, when one day, near Merseburg, Ger many, tho neids, meadows and trees wero covered by masses of peculiar blue cob webs, the women of tliat town, both mar- ; ried and unmarried, wanted to preserve souvenirs of the strange phenomenon. Thoy, therefore, by spinning, made orna mental strings and similar trinkets of the cobwebs. Ron had gloves and stockings manu factured of common cobwebs, and sent these articles, together with a treatise on the raising ol" spiders, to the Academy of ; Sciences ul Paris iv 17(i<>. A commission I was appointed for examining theso propo- | sitions, to which commission the famous ; natunilist Keaumur belonged, the iv- ' \ ventor of a theromoineter still bearing j - _____ name. He showed that Bon's plan I D»PfiCFS~ lffl3Hlßaking l!sJ_iPowder: Tbe only Pure Cream of Tartar Powder.—No Ammonia; No Alum. Used in Millions of Homes— 40 Years the" Standard. was impracticable, because not enough ilies could be procured for fepding the spi oerskept for breeding. This seems to be credible, il oue considers that nearly raO,ooo spiders would yield only one pound of silk. Bon's' idea was repeatedly revived, and particu larly American spiders, yielding a more compact thread, were recommended; put cloths made of cobweb silk always remain curiosities. Thus tho French naturalist l.'Urbigny had a pair of solid trousers for which South Americau spiders had furnished the raw material. Reaumur, however, went lurther tlian Hon. **\\ c shall borrow from animals?" he asked. "If a common worm is able to change the foliage it eats into silk, man, with his higher intellect, shall bo able, too, to make silk of similar things." let Reaumur failed when be attempted to prepare silk of gnms and resins, ln the meantime mankind has advanced, chemistry has beon greatly improved and at Paris. Prance, they now manufacture silk of wood. In this respect even two methods havo become known of laic—that of Chardon net and another of l>u Vivier, both of which in rcalityaro based upon the same contrivances. If one pours nitric and sulphuric acid, not particularly concen trated and in a limited quantity, upon cotton, consisting of cellulose "(woody substance), one receives a kind of weak gnu cotton, that, placed into a mixture of ether and al cohol, becomes a mucous mass known as collodion. Exposed to the air this mass . becomes solid again by votalization of tho ether and the alcohol. The two _.- rench chomists named prepare of wood a mass similar to collodion, that, placed in water, becomes solid nearly instan taneously. Prom this mass, under water threads are spun that are called artiticial silk. It Is a well-known fact that artificial products always are inferior to natural products. This is also tho ease with tho artificial silk just described. It is glossy, It is true, but it differs in sonic degree Irom natural or gonuinesilk, particularly by its combustibility. It burns with a brighter Maine than- silk proper, wool, or even cotton. Ladies, therefore, wearing suchstull will do well particularly to be ware of coming in contact with tire. Nevertheless the beginning has been made oi producing artilicial silk at the laboratory. Perhaps the time will como when man will excel the silk worm in the production of silk. Por the present, however, tlie silk worm still excels man in this respect. -»- —. Dust In the Air. Natural science is not ouly occupied with groat and important problems, but devotes considerable attention aud thor oughness to very small ones. Angus Rankin has given two years of anient ■study and research to tiie problem of dost particles in the air, and the re sult of his examination is that in mount ainous regions 696 particles of dust are allotted to eacii cubic half-inch of air in one year. In London 100,000 panicles of dust fall to each cubic half-inch of air (iv ring the same space of time, and other large cities aro not likely to faro better than this approximation.—St. Louis Post- JJispatch. — —«. Last Great Sea Fight. Tho battlo of l.issa was the last grout sea fight in history and the ouly ono wherein armor-clad vessels have opposed other similar vessels in any number. It was fought on July 20, 1866, between the Aus trians, under Admiral Tegotholf, and tho Italians, under Admiral Persano. Each sido had twenty-three vessels; but eleven ol tho Italian lleot wero armor-clad, whilo the Austrians mustered only seven annor-clads. The battlo was remarkable for the amount of ramming done by the Austrians and. for that reason, has been mentioned in connection with the cutting down ot the Victoria. -, A Good (;uine. Golf is the latest fad among the Anglo maniacs. It is a good gamo, too. although Bafe and somewhat slow. There is very little diil'eronco betwoen "shinny" and golf. In the former a player gets an oc casional whack on a peculiar bone just midway between tho knee and the ankle, and kuows thereafter ho has been enjoy ing himself. In golf much tho same kind ol a snub-ended stick and a ball are used, but tbere is supposed to be more science in tho links. Golf is really a second cousin to "shinny." -♦ -Murderers.
