LYON COUNTY TIMES.
WEDNESDAY.MARCH 3, 1880
BRIEF MENTION.
McGinley, the man of many stabs,
is still improving.
The roads between here and Day
ton are in good condition.
A girl in Silver lies in bed until
10 o’clock, because it is sleep-year.
The Silver City Miners’Union held
their semi-annual election last even
ing.
At the weekly spelling match in
Dayton on Friday night, Harry Ruli
son carried off the honors.
Monday being the first pleasant
day Dayton has had for aome time,
the children petitioned for and re
ceived a holiday.
Last Sunday night a trial trip of
the new compressed air locomotive
was made in the SutroTunnel. Gen
eral satisfaction it expressed at the
performance of the mnoltiue—the
mutes concur,;
A rancher ' of Carson Valley
testified lately in the District
Court “ that wood was worth $8 per
cord piled on the rivir bank. If this
Is true the cultivation of pine trees
should form a profitable branch of
agriculture i» Nevada.
Mrs. C. S. McLaren, of San Fran
cisco, with tier two children, in at
present visiting at the residence of
her father, J. F. Angell. Mrs. Mc
Laren was a resident of Silver a few
yoars ago, and is right at home
among her old friends.
Work was resumed yesterday on
the Golden Star mine, situated about
six miles north east of the mouth of
Six-Mile Canyon, owned by Martin
and Peter Cooney. This mine has
been closed since 1870. The last
ore extracted was worked at the mill
of Harney and Evans.
It is rumored that K. A. Schultz,
late Superintendent of the Bullion,
will return to the Comstock to take
chnrge of the Julia and Ward. Mr.
Schultz will receive a hearty wel
come. N ) Superintendent ever left
Nevada with a better record of hon
est management, strict attention to
his duties, and thorough understand
ing of his business.
Como Items.
The Welter mill started up Mon
day last, on ore from the old dump
of (lie Ohio mine.
Geo. M. Heed and Geo. W, Barton
have been appointed mail carriers
from Dayton to Como.
The Ktireka Company will send
fifty tons of ore to bo worked by the
Lj on Mill and Mining Company, at
Dayton. They began the extraction
on the 1st of March.
The fourth shaft of the May Day
mine is now down sixty feet, sinking
on the ledge. They will send twenty
five tons of ore to Dayton for crush
ing in a few weeks.
The last storm at Como was the
deepest tall of snow this winter. It
is now rapidly disappearing. The
roads are improving very fast, and
in a few days travel over them will
be easy.
Mitro Hone at Last.
The resignation of A. Sutro, Esq.,
as Superintendent of the Sutro Tun
nel, ha9 been tendered and accepted.
Thero were more dry eyes in the
commumty on receipt of the news of
this event, than have been seen for
many years. Captain Taylor, of the
Yellow Jacket is mentioned ss a pos
sible successor. J. l>. Bethel is also
named in the same connection, and
as the ono most likely to rccerve the
appointment. Mr. Bethel was the
first Assistant Superiutendent at the
Tunnel, and broke the ground when
work was commenced. He is now
on the Comstock, doubtless under
instructions to be ready when
needed.
Rules of Whist.
The following are among the rules
adopted by our uew Whist Club.
They could be followed advantage
ously by whist playera generally:
First.—Players are not to spit on
their Augers when dealing.
Second.—Partners are not to scold
each other after the hand is played,
nor argue about tbe result had a
different play been made.
Third.—Players will refrain from
complaining about their bauds more
than once in each game.
Fourth.—No player, except when
gaining the odd trick, shall be al
lowed while playing the winning
card, to sw ing his hand in the air as
though waving the Aag of our
Union.

He wants to half piece.
Trouble Between Stage Drivers.
On Monday last about 11:30 a. m.,
when the stages of the mail line and
opposition arrived in front of the
post office, the drivers, who had been
disliking each other for some time,
concluded to settle their difference.
One remarked that the other was a
low fellow, and made other observa
tions to the same effect. The ensu
ing mill was short but spirited, and
ended when one of the Jehus acquain
ted the by-standprs with the fact
that he was entirely satisfied with
his share. No bones were broken or
teeth swallowed. The ill-feeling
arose from the circulation of a re
port that Robert Grimmon, the driv
er of the mall line and the winner of
the fight, had made an unsuccessful
effort to demolish a quartz wagon,
bv running into it with his stage. A
warrant was sworn out against Grim
mon, and yesterday the constable in
terviewed him. He stepped into
Justice Harjcin’s office, plead guilty,
.paid his fine ('$5 and costs'), and drove
off with the mail, and a placid look
which only a mail carrier with a
dear conscience can have.
The Female Hermit.
Nancy Nelson, the excentric f»
male gnat rancher, known as the
hermit of Twenty Six-Mile Hespst,
has moved with her goats to the
mouth of Six-Mile Canyon, where
She ran bn seen every day rounding
np her hand, something after the
manner of cattle men on the plains,
she has now about three hundred;
not so many as were in the band
some years ago. The natural in
crease nf her stock has gone the way
of all flesh left unprotected in the
neighborhood of hungry coyotes.
The dogs in the canyon are now en
deavoring to fill the situation former
ly occupied by the coyotps of the
mountains. Their owners, fearing
that thpy might find something un
wholesome to eat during a goafing
expedition, are prospecting for some
one to buy her nut.
Ithympa for Coffpp.
Snmp nnp thinks hp has disrovprpd
that no othpr rliymp ttian 11 trophy"
can he found for “ coffee." Look at
this:
He tips her thst he lo-ved her.
An ah* nat upon th* sorthT;
And it never even movofl her
Ab ehe sat nn i sipped her coffa*.
It’s as easy as rolling of a log;
here's some more:
H** *0111 her of bin loy« h«
Mentioned hi“ despair.
But ehe tot and nipped her rnfft'e
And apilt aoine upon tbe chair.
It is easier—for instance.
He heeaed her to relent
While ahe a»f and nipped her coffee.
But she would’nt. worth a cent
For ahe thought ’twaa only toffy.
Any child knows what “toffv” is,
and there is no harm in spelling it 1o
make it rhyme.
Justice Court.
The hearing in the case of C. H.
Aitken, Jr., charged with obtaining
money under f.ilse pretenses, is set
for Thursday, at 1 o’clock r. m.
In the case of Paul Gross vs. J. E.
Martin, a suit to recover for meat
furnished; judgment by default was
rendered in favor of plaintiff for
$258 50.
The Quinn Mine.
The lumber for the new Quinn
hoisting works arrived on Sunday,
and five carpenters are now at work
framing the building. The machin
ery probably came up yesterday, but
we were unable to learn the fact
positively in time to insert it before
going ro press.
Court Adjourned for Jail Repair*.
Owing to the noise, the District
Court of Storey county will take a
recess, while the jail is being copper
bottomed. It don’t appsur that the
prisoners are to have a vacation ; per
haps the seclusion of a jail lessens
the sensitiveness of the tympanum.
