There is considerable dissatisfac tion among farmers of this valley who have produce to sell tor ship ment to outside points. It is claimed that the railroad company has all kinds ot prices tor all kinds ot peo ple. For instance, shippers of spuds to Tonopah get a rate ol $11 per ton from Wabuska, while the producer, if he wants to ship a carload on his own account, is charged $14 per ton in carload lots. It is also claimed that the railroad company gives San Francisco and Sacramento shippers ot spuds a rote ot $8 per ton in car load lots to Tonopiah. BRIEF MENTION. —Kd.

At a depth of 560 feet from the sur face water has been struck in the Ludwig copper mine, and the ground is so soft now that timbers will have to be used to keep it in place. The vertical shaft is down 400 feet, and at this level a drift runs to the northeast 140 feet, at which point a winze continues on down 160 feet into water. The big iron ledge which has continued all the way down, carrying good val ues in copper, at the water level turns into a good body of copper ore and the water is highly impreg nated with copper. Supt. Somers is highly elated with the outlook tor the property. It is not definitely known yet whether pumping ma chinery will be at once put in and sinking continued, or other develop ment work done. The property is now showing up as one of the finest in this district. Miss Knemeyer Manager.

The team expects to have a large schedule ot games this year and will begin practice as soon as the tootball season closes. The team promises to be quite strong this year. Carson After Como Trade. Carson citizens are figuring that the time is nearly at hand to build a road from Carson to Como to se cure the trade of that now boom ing mining camp. They claim that a roftd can be put in and not cover over twenty miles in distance, while the camp is only twelve miles from Carson as the crow flies. There is a possibility that Como may develop into a humming camp in the next tew months, and Carson needs the business. Sinking New Well. Hironymous & Snyder, of the Pio neer Stables, are sinking a big well in the corral at the rear of their stables. They will also erect a large 5,000-gallon tank over the well and put in a windmill or gasoline engine to pump water into the tank. This water will be piped from the tank to the stables, and also to the resi dences of both proprietors and can also be used tor fire purposes. It will be a very handy arrangement all around. Railroad Will Contest Raise. It is reported that the Southern Pacific Co. will contest the assessed valuation ot their property in Lyon county, and bring the matter beiore the State Hoard of Assessors at its next meeting in Carson. The Hoard ot Equalization in this county raised the S. P. Co. $35,656 on rolling stock and added $120,ooe to the Assessor’s valuation on account ot the new track in this county between Hazen and Churchill station. Sugar Company Incorporated. According to the Carson News the La Retorma Sugar Company is the name of a corporation which has filed papers ot incorporation in Car son this week. The principal place ot business is to be Carson City, and the capital stock ot the company amounts to 50,000 shares at $20 each Of this amount $140,000 has been subscribed. It is not stated where the field ot operation of this company will be. More Building. J. G. Kaufman lias purchased the house and lot on Main street former ly owned by the Downey estate, and now occupied by Will Powers. Sev eral rooms are being added to the rear of the building, and Mr. Kauf man and family will occupy the res idence as soon as the building is completed. Tamale Parlors and Bakery. Mrs. W. R. Hayes wishes to an nounce that after the 23d inst. she will have her tamale parlors and bakery located in her residence on Virginia Street. Tamales can be had at all hours and fresh bread, doughnuts, pies and cakes kept on hand or baked to order. Moving. D. Paquint and family moved into their new residence this week and Dr. Smith has moved into the Apsey residence, formerly occupied by the Paquint family. Assay Scales for Sale. A pair of No. 5 Becker balancing scales tor assaying purposes are of fered for sale at a bargain. Scales are in good condition. Enquire of E. IT. Whitacre for price, etc. Laying Out Town Lot*. F. L. Littell, who owns about twenty acres ot land lying east of town, is opening up the same to sell as town lots. A street running north and south, parallel with Main street, will extend the whole dis tance ot the tract. This street will run from Pearl street, just north of the school house, south to a street to run east from Main street into the Downey land at a point just south of the Collins blacksmith shop. The Downey land will, also, eventually be cut up into lots for residence purposes Both of these tracts are excellent pieces ot ground for this purpose, and will be a re lief to the congested condition of things.on Main street. At the pres ent time a business lot cannot be bought for love or money on Main street within the business section. The opening up of streets for resi dences will give the town a chance to grow to the east and not make it string out for miles on the Main street. Considerable building is con templated next Spring, and resi dences will more than likely be built on the new tracts instead ot on the main business street. Rich Gold Strike. J. A. Antrim and George Simp son were down from Smith Valley the lirst ot this week, bringing with them some fine looking speci mens of gold ore from a discovery recently made in the mountains south of Wellington. The discov ery was made by an Indian who showed the place to Messrs. Antrim and Simpson, who ere this, proba bly, have made several locations. Specimen ore shown to parties here was very rich, gold being visible to the naked eye. These samples would carry, we should judge, $150 to $200 in gold. The ledge on top is about live feet wide and assays made here at the Wood office give returns ot $56 tor the lull width of the croppings. The owners of the claim will do some development : work immediately to see what they may open up with depth. The Best Doctor. Rev. B. C. Horton, Sulphur Spring, Tex., writes, July 19th, 1902: “I have used in my family Ballard’s Snow Liniment and Horehound Syr up, and they have proved certainly satisfactory. The liniment is the best we have ever used lor headache and pains. The cough syrup has been our doctor tor the last eight years. For sale by G. I. Leavitt & Son. Potatoes Moving. Mason Valley spuds are on the move, several carloads having been shipped to Tonopah this week, and more to San Francisco, Oakland and Sacramento. The price paid has been $15 to $16 per ton at Wabuska. The spuds are of good quality this season, although the crop is not quite up to the average in yield. Many producers are holding tor a better price, believing that the mar ket will reach the S20 mark. for All Kinds of Piles.

The animal knocked Hannon against the side ot the shop and fractured a couple ot his ribs, but the injured man is getting along nicely and will probably re sume his duties next Monday.

Last week Geo. Aiken swore out a warrant for the arrest ot H. Bris son and E. Ashton on a charge ot stealing 80 feet ot rope from a shaft on one ot the old Boston-Nevada copper claims. The defendants plead guilty upon arrest and were fined $20 and costs, each. The boys took this rope from an old, abandoned shaft, thinking it was ot no further use to any one, and when they found it belonged to somebody offered to pay tor it. George Knierim, Piute, who was arrested last week tor going into the Palace saloon at an early hour one morning, and demanding whisky, was last Monday fined $60. He paid the fine. “Buckaroo” George and Frank Cloy, Piutes, were arrested last week Friday on the same charge. “Buckaroo" George was found guilty at his trial Monday and also lined $60. The charge against Frank Cloy was dismissed, as he proved an alibi. Trestle Burned on Nev. & Cal. Line. Last Tuesday afternoon Track walker Robert Burns discovered that the stretch ot trestle work on the Nev. & Cal. road just this side ot Churchill Station had been burned out. He flagged the trains and no damage was done. Some of our yellow contemporaries have this trestle built 40 or 50 feet high over a “yawning abyss” into which the “Tonopah Flyer” (which hits the trail at a gait ot about 20 miles an hour) would have plunged had not the damage to the trestle been dis covered. The trestle bridges a.dry wash which is not over four feet under the track at any point. The accident would have been a bad one, however, but tor the watchfulness ot Trackwalker Burns. As it was the trains were only delayed a tew hours, the mail stage from Wabuska not getting to Yerington until after II o’clock that night. The bridge was probably burned by a fire started by tramps.

Will Recover from Wound. Roy Chichester, who was acci dentally shot by his brother, George, at his home in Coleville last week, now has a good chance to recover. The bullet which entered his abdo men miraculously failed to cut any of the intestines or hit a fatal spot. Young Chichester is now in St. George’s hospital, in Reno, and his mother is attending him. It is thought that he will be able to re turn to his home in a couple of weeks, provided no other complica tions arise from the wound. Ranch Leased. August Depalio, of Dayton, has leased the Birmingham ranch in this valley for a period of five years from the first day of next November, agreeing to pay there for a rental of $1,200 per year. The ranch is a good piece of property, and with the markets as they are the lessee will have no trouble in making good money on the bargain.
