S F p AN UNPRECEDENTED CASE \ Thorough Research Being Made as to What Caused Will Whitten’s Death The death of William Whitten at the Monroe House, in Reno, February 25, from a shock re ceived from an electric light fix ture, has led to much investigation as to the cause of death. The re search is being carried on by Prof. J. ('«. Scrugham of the engineer ing department of the University of Nevada. There is no similar case on record and this investiga tion is for scientific reasons with a view to remedying the evil. Prof. Scrughftm is one of the foremost engineers in the West and through his efforts the scientific papers of the country will have several tech nical articles upon the death and circumstances that led to it. In an interview Prof. Scrugham said in part: The burns on both the hands indicate a grounded cir cuit through the metal washstand upon which the victim was lean ing. The investigation has prov en that there is no ground through this source at present, but at that time the conditions were entirely different, as a severe storm was in progress and the ground was satu rated with water. The test will be continued under these condit ions as soon as the weather per mits. The test for a ground circuit was made with a lamp, magnet and galvanometer. All of the tests show no ground at present. The wet weather still increases the chance for grounding the cir cuit. By grounding is meant the furnishing of a return path to the line through the ground by an outside conductor as the wash basin and the metal drainpipe in this instance. Death in cases of this kind are usually from heart disease, but the severe burns on the hands would indicate electrocution. As it re quires from 1700 to 1S00 volts to electrocute when used in cases of criminals, it is possible that a high induced static charge was the cause of death in this instance The shock was not received from the wire, as was generally sup posed. but from the brass on the end of the light bulb. Plus is one ot me very lew cases on record of death resulting from a shock on low potential sys tems. This line carried no volts. Another remarkable case is that of the death of a Brooklyn lineman, who was killed from 220 volts. This case was commented on by the electric journals. 'The investigation of this case will be continued until a satisfact ory solution lias been obtained. Immediately following this the work will be given in detail in a number of electrical engineering journal.—Journal. how tosettTe Wme\ICO Not All Sunshine tor Those Who Desire to Make Homes In That Country. The following is from United States Counsul Lespinasse,of Tux pam, Mexico: In reply to many letters receiv ed from professional men, clerks and mechanics in different parts of the United States, 1 deem it advisable to state that the first and all-important point for any one wishing to settle in Mexico is to be able to speak the Spanish language, otherwise his chances of meeting with success are small. Although this may not apply with equal force to the farmer, who necessarily is not dependent to so great an extent as professional men and mechanics on a knowl edge of the language in order to succeed, still, even to the farmer it is a very desirable acquisition. Furthermore, all who come to Mexico should have at least $r,ooo to $2,000 in gold. They will then be in a condition to investigate and study the people and the country. At the first glance hun dreds of apparently profitable op portunities present themselves to the new-comer, but if he is wise he will actually remain investiga ting for six months to familiarize himself with the commercial and social conditions which may exist where he proposes to locate. This may seem an exaggeration, but even a year would be still more advantageous, if it were possible to remain idle for that length of time. I here is much on the sur face that appears seductive, but hasty investments are generally disastrous. To this hundreds can testify who hrve plunged thought lessly into enterprises concerning which they had no previous ex perience or knowledge. Newcom ers should make haste slowly, identify themselves with people of all classes and nurse their capital in order to increase it an hundred fold. This is possible since ready | money commands an enormous in terest, when judiciously invested j and protected by the valuable knowledge gained during the pro | bationary period mentioned. RAILROAD ON PAPER j It is Possible That Smith and Mason Val ues May be Traversed. The press dispatches are again | industriously projecting a railroad to traverse the fertile vallies of this county, as the following will show: It will be a short time only be fore an overland railroad will trav j el El Dorado county, Cal., from its ! western to its eastern border. The Sacramento and Placerville, is now the nucleus which will con nect with the trunk line of the Central Pacific somewhere in Ne vada. \\ here the new line will con nect with the Central Pacific in Nevada is not yet determined. A very rich country would be ex plored by passing through the val lies of the Walker River, the fer tile basin known as Smith Valley and Mason Valley, and thence through Churchill county, Nevada, and along the Carson Sink to the main line near Winnemucca. The shorter route but one which will open up nothing but tourist travel and lumber traffic would be along the western shores of Take Tahoe and thence down the Truckee river. The first route spoken of would certainly open up an agricultural section of vast proportions, also some very valuable mineral coun try. Such a route would come into Carson Valley from Placer ville, thence on through to Smith Valley and by one of several easy passes into the upper end of Ma son Valley. From here an easy route could be obtained to trav erse the length of this valley and thence on into Churchill county. Such a route would open up sev eral hundred thousand acres of agricultural country and some of the best virgin mineral country in the State. Besides it would be a means of affording cheap trans portation for fuel into the copper belt of this valley, which would be the means of again starting up the copper mining industry of this section. It is, of course, a little previous to contemplate a railroad of this kind, but when the agricultural sections are all furnished with water and sub-divided into eighty one hundred and sixty acre farms there is no doubt that a railroad will be constructed to follow, prac tically, the route above outlined. Great enterprises move slowly, but surely, and those who can now secure homes in these dis tricts and make a comfortable liv ing for a few years will in the years to come find that they acted wisely, for so sure as one day fol lows another our vallies will ere long be overrun by liome-seekers, property enhanced in value, and the man with a small farm will then find himself the possessor of ; a property which will yield him a nice income. .

The father doesn’t realize as he romps with the child what years of wifely suffering must be set against the baby’s laughter.
