Mr. G, W. Fowler, of Hightower, Ala., relates an experience he had while serving on a petit jury in a murder case at Kdwardsville, coun ty seat ot Cleboume county, Ala bama. He says: “While there I ate some lresh meat and some souse meat and it gave me cholera morbus in a very severe form. I was never more sick in my life and sent to the drug store tor a certain cholera mix ture, but the druggist sent me a bot tle of Chamberlain’s Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoe Remedy, saying he had what I sent for but that this medicine was so much better he would rather send it to me in the fix I was in. I took one dose of it and was better in live minutes. The second dose cured me entirely. Two fellow jurors were afflicted in the same manner, and small bottle cured all of us. For sale at Mason Valley Drug Store. Automobile Vlilti Valley. The natives of the lower end of Mason Valley were treated to quite a novel sight this week. Secretary of State, Douglass, and a couple of friends spent a couple of days duck hunting and traveled in an automo bile. They made the trip from Vir ginia City to Wabuska in three and one-halt hours, and the only diffi culty encountered on the way was the sand in Churchill Canyon. This was overcome by roping the wheels to give them a grip on the sand. The hunters bagged considerable game, and, all in all had an enjoyable trip. Whit It life? In the last analysis nobody knows, but we do know that it is under strict law. Abuse the law even slightly, pain results. Irregular living means derangement of the organs, resulting in constipation, headach or liver trouble. Dr. King’s New Life Pills quickly re-adjust this. It’s genuine yet thorough. Only 25c. at the Mason Valley Drug Store. _ Meeey la lleaey. C. C. Tidd, of Smith Valley, pur chased last year fifty colonies of bees, paying therefor the fancy price of $7.50 per colony. This season he will harvest from these colonies sev en thousand pounds of the finest kind of comb honey. He has been offered 9c. per pound for the honey by a California concern, but is hold ing for 100. Should he receive the latter price he will clear over $300 on his investment from his first crop of honey. A pretty good business for the money invested. Cured of lame Back After flfteeu Years of Suffering. “I had been troubled with lame back tor fifteen years and I found a complete recovery in the use of Chamberlain’s Pain Balm,” says John G. Biaher, Gillum, Ind. This liniment is also without equal for sprains and bruisos. For sale at Mason Valley Drugstore.

Roth, and who had visited Mason Valley early last Spring, hired a horse and buggy of Hironymous & Snyder, ostensibly to make a trip through the Sweetwater country. Roth stated that he would be gone from here about three weeks. He kept his word, tor he has now been gone nearly three months, and so has the rig. Some days ago Mr. Hironymous learned that a man answering Roth's de scription had performed a similar trick at Bishop, Cal., a few weeks ago, and that he had also obtained money on a forged check from a business man of Bishop, and that, the officers of that place were look ing for him. Last Sunday Mr. Hi ronymous started out to look for his rig. He found out that Roth had not been through the Sweetwater country but that he had been to Bodie and Bridgeport, but had not left the rig at either of those places. He returned from Bodie Tuesday, and will see if the officials in the several surrounding counties can locate the man or rig. The rig is valued at $150. Roth was acting as agent for a patent machine tucker as well as repairing machines, and it has been learned that he sometimes used the name of W. G. Tripp in his correspondence. far Commlssloaer. Under the heading of ‘‘Political Announcements,” in another column of this issue, will be found the card of T. J. A. Flaws for long term County Commissioner. Mr. Flaws sought the office of Commissioner two years ago but was defeated by the small margin of n votes. Many people in this section have regretted since that they did not vote for him then, and will make amends at the coming election. The Times can say, after an acquaintance of over twenty years with Mr. Flaws, that he is one of the most honorable and upright business men that ever lo cated in Nevada. His record has been one of live and let live, and the instances of his kindness to those who have found themselves in need of temporary assistance have been too numerous to mention. Should he succeed in becoming one of the Commissioners of Lyon county his policy would undoubtedly be to con duct the affairs of the county on a broad gauge plan, treating all with the consideration that taxpayers should have and bestowing no spec ial privileges upon any certain clique tor the the purpose of politi cal preferment. We believe Mr. Flaws would make the best Com missioner Lyon county has had for years past. It we did not so believe we should so state. A Remedy Without a Peer. "I find Chamberlain’s Stomach and Liver Tablets more beneficial than any other remedy I ever used for stomach trouble,” says J. P. Klote, of Kdina, Mo. For any disorder of the stomach, biliousness or constipa tion, these tablets are without a peer. For sale at Mason Valley Drug Store. _ Proposed Colonization. Should the Rickey Land & Cattle Company decide to colonize Ante lope and Bridgeport Vallies, cutting up its large holdings into small farms, as there is a rumor of its doing, it will be a great thing for the county. It would mean bring ing into the county at least fifty families. These would give em ployment to one or two men each. The land would be cultivated and made to produce to its full capacity, business in all branches would be increased and all would benefit by the change.—Bridgeport Chronicle Union. __ Chamberlain's Cough Remedy Aids Nature.

Last Sunday evening from about 8 until 9 o’clock a “peeping Tom" was prying about a number ol resi dences in the southern portion of town, on Main street, and the ladies in that neighborhood were badly frightened by his actions. He would come up and stand peering in at a door or window until someone ap proached him, when he would walk away and hide behind a tree. Fi nally one of the ladies asked him why he was prying about there. He impertinently replied that a man had a right to stand on the street. He was told he had no right to loiter about private residences and peep into doors and windows. Finally one of the ladies avowed her in tention of shooting him, and pro cured a pistol. At this the fellow ran up the street and was not seen again. Constable Dillon was noti fied and made a search for the man, but did not find him. The ladies describe him as being a rather short, heavy-set man, wearing good clothes and a light colored shirt or necktie, and a light, sott hat. He is evident ly a foreigner as he spoke broken Knglish, and did not appear to be under the influence of liquor. If some irate male citizen catches him at these practices there is liable to be an ambulance call. Beware of Olatmeits for Catarrh that Coo tala Mercury, as mercury will surely destroy the sense of smell and completely de range the whole system when enter ing it through the mucous surfaces. Such articles should never be used except on prescriptions from repu table physicians, as the damage they will do is ten fold to the good you can possibly derive from them.

The men on the place were engaged in stacking hay and the youngster was playing around the stack and derrick. As a fork full of hay was being raised the little fellow grab bed the derrick rope and his hand was drawn down into the tackle through which the rope runs. He managed to pull his hand out of the block before it was tightly wedged in, or otherwise the rope would un doubtedly have cut it oft. As it is the flesh is torn from the fingers and the hand badly bruised, but no bones are broken and the member will be all right in a short time. Rate* to the World’s Fair.
