The ledge is from two to four feet wide, and it is said that a horniul of ore taken from it any where will pan out halt a teaspoon lull ot gold. This strike is at a depth ot about 600 teet from the surface and was made but a couple of days ago. Not Smallpox When the cases resembling small pox broke out in this town some three weeks ago, Dr. Martin ex pressed the belief that the eases were not smallpox, and stated to a reporter that the disease was what is known in the Philippines as the Dengue Fever, a severe type of malaria. In the San Francisco Chronicle ot a late date is a report from Dr. Harry Kberle, an army surgeon who has just returned from Manila after studying this disease tor some months. His state ment is to the effect that the disease which has been brought to the United States by returning soldiers from the Philippines, and which much resembles a light form of smallpox, is the Dengue Fever. Dr. Martin is pronounced in his asser tion that there is no smallpox in Yer ington. Whatever the disease is all patients have recovered, and tnere are no new cases that we have heard of. Waat a Registry Agent. Mason Valley precinct is without a Registry Agent. A. A. Pinkerton, who is Justice of the Peace of Mason Valley township, has moved out of this precinct, and consequent ly cannot act as ex-olficio Registry Agent here. The registry books are supposed to be open in each precinct on and after July 1st, but no registration has taken place here because there is no one to act as agent. The attention ot the Com missioners has been called to this matter, but why they did not ap point a Registry Agent lor this precinct at the last meeting is not known. Drunken Indian*. Last Sunday there were a dozen or fifteen drunken Indians in town, and they made themselves quite conspicuous on Main street. It seems to us that there ought to be some way to stop this sale of liquor to Indians, as it is becoming more general each season. Some deed is liable to be committed almost any time by some of these drunken Indians which will involve the county in an expensive case, and the real malefactor—the person who gives or sells the whisky to the Indian—will remain untouched while the Piute will go to prison or stretch hemp.

The agent spent a day or two this week in Wells delivering the books. As an historical work it does not rank very high. Rather it should be called ‘‘The Biography of Those Who Wish to Pay the Price.” Furthermore it contains pictures of men, now along in years, which were posed tor in youth, and is frequented by many errors. It is a nicely bound volume; that said, all is said.—Wells Herald. far Over Sixty Year* Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup has been used for over sixty years by millions ot mothers tor their chil dren while teething, with perfect success.

Last Saturday a horse hitched to a buggy got away from Nick Hironymous on account ot the bridle breaking. The animal start ed tor the north end ot the valley at a lively rate and it was supposed the buggy would be a wreck. Tom Ross caught the horse near the Holland ranch, and strange to say not a particle of damage was done to the animal or vehicle. Lei Brakes. Tom Berryman, formerly of this place, had his leg broken in two places below the knee Tuesday while working around a C. & C. train at Hawthorne. Just how the accident happened we could not learn. He was taken to Carson Wednesday, and it is feared that his leg will have to be amputated. Ne Pity Skew*. "For years fate was after me con tinuously” writes F. A. Gulledge, Verbena. Ala.

HAND SEPARATORS PAY. The Orange Judd Farmer Gives Reasons for Installing Hand Separators. If an easier and cheaper way of doing the work on the farm is dis covered. the new plan should be adopted in the interest of economy. If it is cheaper to do the separating at home and take only the cream to the butter factory than it is to haul each day’s milk to the creamery, wait tor the separating to be done and take the skim-milk home, why not adopt the cheaper plan? To take each day’s milk to the factory will require at least an hour daily. This means to the farmer who produces milk the year round 365 hour’s work for a man and team. Perhaps he goes for a time in the winter every other day; this will reduce the time to probably 300 hours. This is one month, or one-twelfth ot the entire Sear spent in going to the factory. !ow many dollars is this time worth? Different amounts on differ ent farms, but not less than $75, and some more than that. For $100 to $125 a machine that will skim from 450 to 600 pounds of milk per hour can be secured. With a dairy of ten cows it will take probably 15 minutes to do the separating. A tar better quality of skim-milk is available tor feeding to young stock because it is warm, sweet and clean and in the best possible condition. Where the sep arating can be done with a tread power, operated by some animal, the expense is reduced to almost nothing. The required time tor the work need not be considered, as the separating and milking can be done at the same time. It run by a small gasoline engine the expense need not be over 2C an hour. I milk eight cows and run a 450-pound-per-hour machine, do my separating in from 10 to 15 minutes, and 1 surely am saving a great deal of time and labor compared to the old plan of driving tour miles every morning with the milk and spending from one to two hours in getting it skimmed. Under these conditions I consider that two year’s use ot the machine has more than paid tor it. The question of disposing of the cream is easily answered. Arrange a tank deep enough to set cream cans in and cover tight. Place this between your pump and stock tank, so that all water pumped tor the stock passes into this tank, circu lates around the cans and runs out into the larger tank. Plunge cans containing the warm cream into this water as soon as separated and keep it there until you are ready to deliver it to the butter maker. Cream will keep sweet 48 hours in the warmest weather, but may be kept for four days.—F. L. Wood house, in Orange Judd Farmer. THE WILD-CAT WOLLOPER. How Congressman VanDuzer Smashes the Fake Mining Concerns, The Tonopah Sun devotes a page to a mining company which Con gressman Van Duzer is exploiting, called the New England Tonopah Company. The Sun states that on the first page of a bright red cover is the statement: “The New Eng land Tonopah Company—$150,000,000 in sight.” Mr. Van Duzer’s report upon the property states that: “The situation of the New England Tono pah Mining Company’s properties in the center of the district demon strates that they are among the best properties in the district. From the surface of your group of claims assays running from $20 to tioo can be secured from the vein systems.” The Tonopah Sun, however, states that the claims are two and a half miles west of Tonopah, beyond Mt. Butler, and while some development work is going on, there is nothing yet in sight that will assay. More over that there are no paying mines surrounding the workings as the prospectus states. The shaft is being sunk in a blue porphyry cropping, which the Sun thinks may possibly carry traces of gold. Wonder if this is the same Con gressman Van Duzer who address ed the House of Representatives so eloquently upon the subject of wild cat mines.—Enterprise. C. & C. CUT-OEF MAY BE BUILT. To Start a Few Miles West of Wabuska and Connect With S. P. Main Line at Town of Hazen, The Tonopah papers of last week state that they learn from an author itative source that the Southern Pacific Company has definitely de cided to construct the cut-off from the C. & C. road to the main line. The cut-off will start about eight miles west of Wabuska and reach the main line at Hazen, some twenty miles east of Hazen. This is one of the plans proposed by Huntington before his death. ' The cut-off will require the building of less than thirty miles of track, and will save about eighty miles between Tono pah and Salt Lake. The move is tor the purpose of making better rates on ore shipments from Tonopah to Salt Lake, cutting out the heavy grade to the Mound House and doing away with the transfer of freight at that point. Should the new line be made a broad gauge it is under stood that the Western Ore Pur chasing Company will erect samp ling works where the road leaves the C. & C., but should it be a narrow gauge the works will be constructed at Hazen. In connec tion with this move the rumor is again afloat that the C. & C. will be extended south to Mojave. Should the cut-ofl be built the Mason Valley people would very much like to see it be a broad gauge, as such a line would greatly fa cilitate the shipping of cattle into and out of this valley tor feeding purposes. It is reported that the matter will be definitely settled inside of sixty days. $100 Reward, $100.
