LYON COUNTY TIMES.
YF.RING TON, - NEVADA Saturday.Jan. 7 1905. With the beginning of the new year the outlook for better times and increased prosperity in Lyon county is brighter than ever. The fact that our section will soon be connected with the outside by a broad gauge railroad, in itself, means much. It means that all of the produce raised here can be shipped to ,a good market as cheaply from this point as it can from any other, probably much cheaper. It means that if the farmers will put into cultivation their vacant land that they can sell from twice ot ten times the amount of produce that they have heretofore been raising. It also means that Mason Valley can com pete with any place in the State as a beef feeding point for stock men during the winter months. There is also an encouraging outlook for the early settlement of water litigation and almost cer tain assurance that the govern ment will, at an early date, begin the necessary surveys for an irri gation System for the Walker Rivers. These two things alone—the broad gauge road and a govern ment storage and distribution sys tem for water—will make of Lyon one of the foremost agricultural counties in the State, to say noth ing of our mining enterprises, which are of no mean proportions. Taking all things into consider ation, we do not know of a time when the outlook for prosperity has been brighter in Lyon county. President Roosevelt is dem onstrating that he lias the honesty and courage to attempt to do what he promised. He has al ready begun an investigation of the beef trust; he has thrown down the gauntlet to the Stand ard Oil Company; will attempt to have the laws in regard to inter state commerce amended so as to give the commissioners more lati tude, and last but not least, has in structed the United States Attor ney General to begin action to dissolve the great paper trust. In the past few years the price of all kinds of paper has been advanced about fifty per cent., and not a newspaper in the land, from the metropolitan daily to the smallest country weekly but what has felt the pressure of this trust, and there are none who would not be glad to see the trust dissolved and the old system of business return. On all well regulated farms in the eastern and western States you will find a diversity of crops and stock. This condition also prevails in California, but it does not prevail in Nevada, and only occurs in exceptional cases. Here not one farmer in a hundred raises any sheep for mutton purposes. A small bunch of sheep on a farm are a positive benefit. They can be kept in a field where other stock need not run; they can be raised and fattened cheaply on a farm and they always bring good’ prices in the local markets. Sheep will clean up land better than any other animals, as they will eat or destroy nearly every kind of weed plant and all brush. livery farm er should have, besides his cattle, horses, hogs, chickens, etc. a small bunch of sheep to turn onto the market each year. They would prove profitable in more ways than one. _ Although both the Japs and Russians claim that the surrender of Port Arthur has no significance in the way of calling a halt to the bloody war between the two na tions, it may be confidently ex pected that the other powers will soon take a hand in the matter of having hostilities cease. Pleasant and Most Effective. T. J. Chambers, Kd. Vindicator, Liberty, Texas, writes Deo. 25, 1902: "With pleasure and unsolicited by you, I bear testimony to the cur ative power of Mallard's Horehound Syrup. I have used it in my family andean cheerfully affirm it is the most effective and best remedy tor troughs and colds 1 have ever used.” Sold by all medicine dealers.
