Abscesses, with tew exceptions are indicative of constipation or de ability. VV. H. Harrison, Cleveland, Miss., writes, Aug. 15, Iqoj: “1 want to say a word ot praise tor Mallard's Know Liniment. I stepped on a nail, which caused the cords in my leg to contract and an abscess to rise in my knee, and the doctor told me that I would have a still leg, so one day 1 went to J. K. Lord’s drug store (who is now in Denver, Col.) He recommended a bottle ot Know Lini ment; I got a 50c size, and it cured my leg. It is the' best liniment in the world. Kold by Mason Valley Drug Ktore. Al. Gifford Injured Al. Gifford, who went to the south ern country last week, returned Thursday ot this week considerably disfigured but still in the ring. On a trip' from Tonopah to Goldfield in an automobile Tuesday, the wheel came off of the machine while run ning at the rate of about 25 miles an hour. Mr. Gifford and nine other passengers were thrown out of the vehicle and all were more or less injured. Mr. Giflord had hiB head cut, his arm badly bruised and was injured about the chest, but will re cover. The machine was a total wreck and it is u wonder some of the passengers were not killed. A Laxative Cough Syrup. "A cold or cough nearly always produces constipation—the water all runs to the eyes, nose and throat in stead ot passing out of the system through tne liver and kidneys. For the want ot moisture the bowels become dry and hard.” Kennedy’s Laxative Honey and Tar is the orig inal Laxative Cough Syrup. It meets and corrects the above condi tions, by acting as a pleasant cathar tic on the bowels—expels all colds from the system and cures all coughs, croup. La Grippe, bronchitis, etc. Sold at Mason Valley Drug Store. BRIEF MENTION. Mrs. Chas. SnyderV- health is improving. —Boh Gracey is now night opera tor at Wabuska. W.H.

The electro-magnetic separating plant installed to make a test on milestone ore is now in running or der. The power used is from the old engine and boilers of the com pany which erected the smelter, and the buildings at the smelter are used to cover the plant. The ore treated by this process is 6rst run through a rock breaker and then through a set ol rolls which crushes it to the fineness of shot. The crushed pro duct is then run through a rever berating furnace which takes out all the sulphur in the ore, and it then passes on to an endless belt travel ing at a low rate of speed. Hang ing above this belt are two heavily charged magnets, and belts passing over these, crosswise to the belt upon which the ore rides, pick up every particle ot metal charged ma terial. The result is a concentrate which may be worked on the ground or shipped. From all appearances the plant is going to handle the ore successfully, but as there is numer ous adjustments to make where so many different speeds are used in conjunction, no regular run has yet been made. Mr. Heller is expected here any day now to investigate the working of the plant. Reliance Insurance Man Here, Frank Templeman, represntmg the Reliance Life Insurance Co. of Pitts burg, Pa., was an arrival here the first of the week and will make the Hotel Yerington his headquarters for some weeks and talk business to all who desire to know more about the great war going on between the old line companies and the govern ment. Mr. Templeman was tor thir teen years with the Kquitable Lite, of New York, and knows something about the business. The company he now represents started olf a few years ago with a capital of a million, cash, and now has a surplus of $i, 800,000, so it must be doing some business, and, we should judge, reli able in every way. Space prevents a treatise on the benefits of life in surance, but if you will call on Tem pleman, or allow him to call on you, he will give you some inside tacts that may be of advantage to you, and he will not persecute you with his attentions, either. Got Off Cheap. He may well think, he has got off cheap, who, after having contracted constipation or indigestion, is still able to perfectly restore his health. Nothing will do this but Dr. King’s New Life Pills. A quick, pleasant and certain cure for headache, con stipation, etc. 25c at Mason Valley Drug Store; guaranteed. Light Rala. After making the attempt for sev sral days a light shower of rain fell here Thursday—just about enough to lay the dust and clear the atmos phere. Thursday night, following the rain, there was quite a heavy frost and tomato vines, pumpkins, cucumbers, etc., were mowed down. The rainfall was not heavy enough to damage the grain open for thresh ing to any great extent. During the storm snow tell on the mountain ranges to the east and west of the valley._ Strata. S. A. Read, Cisco, Tex., writes, March II, 1901; “My wrist was sprained so badly by a tall that it was useless; and after using sever al remedies that tailed to give relief, used Ballard’s Snow Liniment, and was cured.

A Plan Now on Foot to Purchai* Large Holding*, Sub-Divide Them and Sell to Homeseeker*. Messrs. Fogel and Kingsbury, who represent Pittsburg capitalists, spent last week in Smith Valley looking over the agricultural sec tion with a view to purchasing sev eral large ranches there, for the purpose of cutting the land up into small farms and selling them to homeseekers. The gentlemen took their departure for the East Tues day and are very enthusiastic over the possibilities which exist in this section of the country for the in vestment of money and the chance to do business. Messrs. Fogel and Kingsbury have taken an option on the Cohn and O’Banion ranches in Smith Valley— some 6,000 acres—and it their report on the condition of things looks as good to those who are to form the company for this enterprise as it ap pears to look to them, there is no doubt that business will be done. The option which they have take^ includes the controlling interest in the Smith Valley creamery, and should the scheme contemplated be pushed through, the six thousand acres ol land mentioned will be cut up into tracts of not over ioo acres each, the farms stocked with blood ed dairy cattle, and the dairy busi ness carried on in Smith Valley to the limit. This would mean that in the neighborhood of sixty more fam ilies would become residents of Smith Valley, in Lyon county. The people who would purchase these small farms will come from a sec tion of country where intensive farming is carried on, and are of a class who will not need a thousand acres of land and all the water in the river to irrigate it, upon which to make a comfortable living. All of the land in the ranches above mentioned is first class and will produce good crops of anything in the cereal or vegetable line, and if the creamery business cannot be conducted on a paying basis, which there is not the least particle of doubt that it can, it is possible that the beet sugar industry might be tried. Six thousand acres placed in sugar beets would produce enough of the tubers to run quite an exten sive plant. It is to be hoped that the scheme can be brought to the desired end, for it means an entering wedge to the cutting up of large land hold ings in Lyon county, the infusion of new blood into our agricultural sec tions, an increase in population, con sequently more business all around, and eventually the realization of the dreams of the writer that some day Smith and Mason vallies will be two of the most prosperous and pro ductive agricultural sections on the Pacific coast, populated thickly by sturdy people with comfortable, happy homes. for Over Sixty Yeari Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup has been used for over sixty years by millions of mothers for their child ren while teething, with perfect suc cess.

While the Yerington and Wa buska stage was on the jip trip last Sunday, and at a point on the road near the old Freeman ranch, a low telephone wire was encountered, and the contact caused the animals to become frightened and start to run. The rig finally managed to get clear of the wire and no damage to speak of was done to the animals or coach. Four or five telephone poles were torn down, however, which necessitated repairs to the line by the owners. Numerous and Worthless. Everything is in the name when it comes to Witch Hazel Salve. E. C.

The Old Camp Showing Up Some Fine Prop erties That Are Attracting the Atten tion of Outside Capital. The Overland mine in Silver City has been sold for $25,000, the sum of $6,000 being paid down. The new owners are Denver people, and it is understood that a shaft will be sunk on the property to a depth ot 500 teet and a modern mill and cyanide plant installed. The parties who recently pur chased the Hayward mine, in Silver City, will in the near luture install an electric hoist, modern mill and cyanide plant, and work the prop erty on quite an extensive scale. It is estimated that there are over 100, 000 tons of milling ore now in sight in this property. Experts are at present making an examination ot the Lager Beer mine, in Silver City. This property should go, as it has been a producer for some years past, having $150,000 net to its credit. The Silver King mine, owned by A. A. Smith, has been bonded for $15,000. A sale of this property is almost assured as the report of ex perts on the claim is very favorable, and the property has been one of the best producers in Silver City. Eastern capitalists are the people who hold the bond. The old Dayton mine, in lower Silver City, is under bond at the present time tor $30,000, and is being inspected and sampled by expert mining men. A sale is almost sure to result. There are great possibili ties for this property as the vein is 100 feet wide between walls with an approximate value of $6 per ton. The group of mines handled by F. A. Bierke, including the famous Oest mine, will shortly be inspected by Chicago capitalists. If a sale oc curs the price will run well up in five figures. A specimen of ore from the Oest, it will be remem bered, brought to Nevada the blue ribbon tor exhibits of quartz speci mens at the Chicago Exposition. An offer of $10,000 has been made and refused for the Buckeye mine. This mine has been a good producer for the past two years under the management ot the lessees. The Cardew & Pedroli mine, un der bond at the present time for $100,000, has just been examined by expert mining men, but the report has not yet been released. This property, however, is looked upon as the best producer in the camp. The mine is being worked at pres ent at a depth ot 200 teet, and a Dow pump, operated by steam, has been installed to handle the water which comes in at that depth. New drifts are being run in high grade ore. The ore in this mine is so rich that thousands of dollars have been pounded out ot the rock in a hand mortar. Several mining properties in Spring Valley are under careful management of reputable mining men, and reports from the same are very flattering. Like finding Money. Finding health is like finding money—so think those who are sick. When you have a cough, cold, sore throat, or chest irritation, better act promptly like W. C. Barber, of Sandy Level, Va. He says: “I had a terrible chest trouble, caused by smoke and coal dust on my lungs; but, after finding no relief in other remedies, I was cured by Dr. King’s New Discovery for Consumption, Coughs and Colds.” Greatest sale of any cough or lung medicine in the world.

The Bodie Miner-Index states that the Reno papers bewail the tact that only seven children were born in that town last month, while there were twenty-one deaths, and there is fear ot an epidemic of “race suicide.” The Miner-index advises the men ot Reno to hump themselves.
