Peculiar Freight Rates.
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.

Water in the Ludwig.
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.
At a meeting ot the Senior class
at the Nevada State University, in
Keno, Thursday, says the Journal,
Miss Bertha Knemeyer, of Yering
ton, was elected manager ot the Uni
versity basketball team lor the pres
ent year. Miss Knemeyer is quite
popular with the basketball girls
and will, no doubt, make a very cap
able manager. She is at present
president ot the Senior class, and
has been a member ot the basket
ball team lor the past three years.
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.
To draw the tire out of a burn,
heal a cut without leaving a scar, or
to cure boils, sores, tetter, eczema
and all skin and scalp diseases, use
DeWitt’s Witch Hazel Salve. A
specific tor blind, bleeding, itching
and protruding piles. Stops the
pain instantly and cures perma
nently. Get the genuine. Sold at
the Mason Valley Drug Store.
Ribs Broken by Horse.
Jerry Hannon, blacksmith at the
O’Hanion ranch in Smith Valley,
was knocked out by a Iractious
horse last week Friday, which he
was shoeing. 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.

complaints that are curable are
quickly cured by One Minute Cough
Cure. Clears the phlegm, draws out
inflammation and heals and soothes
the allected parts, strengthens the
lungs, wards oft pneumonia. Harm

Alturas, the county Beat of Modoc
county, Cal., was visited by a de
structive fire on Wednesday of this
week. Over a dozen business build
ings were consumed, including the
Plainder and Republican newspaper
offices. The loss will probably be
all of $75,000.

Justice Court News.
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.
Faith Not Necessary.
You may be -just as skeptical and
pessimistic as you please. Kodol
will digest what you eat, whether
you eat or not. You can put your
food in a bowl, pour a little Kodol
Dyspepsia Cure on it and it will di
gest the same as it will in your
stomach. It can’t help hut cure in
digestion and dyspepsia. It is cur
ing hundreds and thousands—some
had faith and some didn’t. Kodol
will cure you it medicine can cure
you, whether you have taith in it or
not. Sold at the Mason Valley Drug
Store.
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.
