They expect to put in hand separators ot their own—those who do not use them now—and deliver nothing but the cream to the station tor manu facturing into butter. By using their own separators the dairymen figure that they will get better milk tor their calves and hogs, and it will not be necessary to make so many trips to a creamery. Properties on Option, W. H. Wheaton and M. J. Vttoo vich, of Tonopah, who spent last week in this section, returned to their homes Wednesday. They have obtained an option lor thirty days on a group ot gold prospects in the Mount Grant country owned by Albert Bovard, and also have an op tion on a couple ot copper claims be t ween the Bluestonc and the Aiken Bros', property on Copper Flat, own ed by A. J. Webster. They expect to return from Tonopah inside ot a couple ot weeks and will put men to work developing the Mount Grant prospects. They will also put in a hoist and sink to some depth on the copper claims they have tied up. This is the kind ot work that is nec essniy to show up what there may be in the camp, and the surface indi cations lead us to believe that there is a good chance to find a mine on this property by doing a sufficient amount ot development work. Incredible Brutality. It would have been incredible bru tality it Chas. F. I.emberger, ot Sy racuse, N. Y., had not done the best he could tor his suffering son. “ My boy,” he says, “cut a tearful gash over his eye, so I applied Bucklen’s Arnica Salve, which quickly healed it and saved his eye.” Good for burns and ulcers, too.

Hailey, ot Dayton. The funeral ot deceased took place from the church here yesterday under the auspices ot the Rebekahs, ot which Order deceased was a member, and was very largely attended by rela tives and friends. Build Cottages* People looking for investment can tind an opportunity in Yerington to build a dozen or more cottages ot from tour to six rooms each. Such cottages would rent at a figure that would return the owners a good rate of interest on their money. At the present time there is not a house to be had tor love nor money, nor is there a vacant room in a hotel in the town. Town lots can be purchased in the residence section ot Yerington at reasonable figures now. They will be higher in the very near fu ture. Now is the time to secure lots and build upon them. People are coming in every day looking tor houses. Will Form Company. K. K. Bugbee, Louis and Theodore Frankie and Win. Richards, all ot Goldfield at present, but formerly ot the San Juan and Cripple Creek country, Colorado, were arrivals here last week. They are mining men ot considerable experience and like the looks ot this section very much. They have already tied up a promising gold prospect and are seeking to obtain others. It is their intention, in the very near future, to organize a company and do some systematic development work on tile claims they hold and may se cure. Mining Sale. Jack Cockrell, prospector and mining man, sold to his partners in the Copper King Mining Co., last week, his one-tourth interest in the six claims recently located on Cop per Flat, just west ot Yerington. The consideration is said to have been $2,000. The company is making preparations to do considerable de velopment work on its claims, and have some excellent showings of ore. Building. The Logan building is completed so far as carpenter work is concern ed and is now being painted, lined and papered. It is the neatest little cottage in town. Mrs. Mae Johnston is making a substantial addition to her house on the Craig Addition. E. II. Whitacre has a couple of carpenters at work making a 16x24 addition to his residence on the Craig Addition. Just opposite the Catholic Church, on the Craig Addition, Manny Brooks is constructing a story-and a-halt d welling ot ample proportions, and the building is well under head way. The new house in the red light district, on Bridge street, is rapidly assuming shape. W. N. Woods’ new house in the Littell Addition is nearing comple tion. Lumber is on the ground for Ira Wagoner’s new house on Pearl street. The saloon building being put up on Main street by Vic Bernard will be completed inside of a month, the masonry work now being nearly finished. Mill Running. W. D. Davidson, who, for a couple ot weeks previous to last Saturday, had been up in the East Walker country to start up the Dumontel mill tor Webster and Hitchens, who have leased the mill to work ore from their mine, returned last Sat urday. He reports that the mill is running nicely and doing good work so tar as can be estimated without making a elean-up. The ore being worked is expected to run about $30 per ton. I? is very heavy with sul phurets, and as there is only one concentrator in the mill it will not catch allot the material. From $8 to $9 is being caught on the plates. It is more than likely that the con centrating capacity of the mill will have to be materially increased be fore the values in the ore can all be saved. The Colonel’s Waterloo. Colonel John M. Fuller, of Honey Grove, Texas, nearly met his Water loo from liver and kidney trouble. In a recent letter, he says: "I was nearly dead ot these complaints, and, although I tried my family doctor, he did me no good ; so I got a 50c bot tle of your great Electric Bitters, which cured me. I consider them the best medicine on earth, and thank God, who gave you the knowl edge to make them.” Sold and guar anteed to cure dyspepsia, billious ness and kidney disease by G. I. Leavitt & Son at 50c a bottle. May Have Perished* The Tonopah Sun of a recent date says that Isaac Miller has wandered away from the cabin of his friend, C. G. Hansen, of Tonopah, and may have perished in the hills. Ike Milller left Yerington some three weeks ago, and stated he was going to Tonopah. Before leaving Yerington he wandered away and was absent from his business, which was that of butcher, tor a week, causing his friends much anxiety. It is evident that Miller has some thing on his mind which bothers him greatly, and it causes him to become insane at times. He has a brother-in-law from Idaho who is now searching tor him, and Ike has many friends who hope he may be found and regain his reason. for Over Sixty Years Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup has been used for over sixty years by millions of mothers tor their child ren while teething, with perfect suc cess. It soothes ttie child, softens the gums, allays all pain, cures wind colic, and is the best remedy for diar rhoea. It will relieve the poor little sufferer immediately.

McIntyre, the blacksmith and wagonmaker, of Yerington, has just turned out of his shop a bran new, homemade, four-horse wagon for Joe Giroud, the sheepman. The wagon is neatly and substanially construct ed and looks stout enough to last a hundred years or more. Taaale Parlors. You can get nice, hot chicken ta males at all hours at the parlors of Mrs. W. R. Hayes, on Virginia street. Try them. You can also jjet fresh bread and doughnuts, and pies and cakes baked to order. Yerington Needs One. The Lovelock water works is now in running order. It consists of a deep well, an engine and pump and a 30,000 gallon tank set at an elevation ot sixty feet. The mains have been laid throughout the town and fifteen plugs are distributed about the town for fire purposes. The Tribune says a sufficient supply of good water is obtained at no great depth and that the tank can be kept full by the sup ply from the well with all the out lets open. This is one of the great needs ot Yerington. It is a matter that could be arranged very easily it the town was incorporated, and in connection with such a system a sewerage sys tem could easily be established. This is what Yerington needs—and must have soon it the residents here expect to maintain a town. It seems to us that it is time to act in these matters. Why not call a meeting of the taxpayers ot this community and discuss these important sub jects? There is more Catarrh in this sec tion ot the country than all other diseases put together, and until the last tew years was supposed to be incurable. For a great many years doctors pronounced it a local disease and prescribed local remedies, and by constantly tailing to cure with local treatment, pronounced it incur able. Science has proven catarrh to be a constitutional disease and there fore requires constitutional treat ment. Hall’s Catarrh Cure, manu factured by F. J. Cheney & Co., To ledo, Ohio, is the only constitutional cure on the market. It is taken in ternally in doses from 10 drops to a teaspoontul. It acts directly on the blood and mucous surfaces ot the system. They offer one hundred dollars tor any case it tails to cure. Send tor circulars and testimonials. Address, F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, O. Sold by druggists 75c. Hall’s Family Pills are the best. A Celery Farm. A celery farm on a large scale is one of the latest enterprises about to be launched near Reno. A company has been formed and the land se cured tor the farm. It is believed that the enterprise will be a success. —Ex. This reminds us that the most de licious celery in the world grows in Mason Valley when carefully culti vated. There is another delicious veget able which can be raised here in great quantities, and that is aspara gus. The soil ot Mason Valley in many places is particularly adapted to the raising ot this vegetable. The alkalines in the soil here are great fertilizers for asparagus, while the plants grown at this altitude are tar superior to those grown on the bogs in California. Some day there will be an asparagus canning factory in Mason Valley. Strikes Hidden Rocks. When your ship of health strikes the hidden rocks of consumption, pneumonia, etc., you are lost, it you don’t get help from Dr. King’s New Discovery tor consumption. J. W. McKinnon, ot Talladega Springs, Ala., writes: •’ I had been very ill with pneumonia, under the care ot two doctors, but was getting no bet ter when I began to take Dr. King’s New Discovery. The first dose gave relief, and one bottle cured me." Sure cure for sore throat, bronchitis, coughs and colds. Guaranteed at Mason Valley Drug Store, price 50c and $1. Trial bottle tree. New Registration Law. The last Legislature made some changes to the law tor registration. Instead of the hooks for registration being open on the 1st ot July, as heretofore, they must be open on the 1st of June. The date ot closing the books has also been changed from the 21st ot October to the 9th day ot September. Otherwise the law is practically the same.
