No Trouble.
An item in the Reno Journal of
a recent date, purporting to be a
telegram from Hawthorne, says
that the Indians on the Walker
Lake Reservation are very much
dissatisfied with the opening of the
Reservation to the white men for
mining and prospecting. This
item has been copied extensively
by the State press, and Virginia
papers have asserted that the two
companies of National Guards at
that place are being held in readi
ness to come to the Reservation in
case of trouble.
This stuff is the merest rot.
There is no dissatisfaction among
the Indians. They are to hold all
the agricultural lands, and will
get something like twenty acres
each. They care little for the
mineral land and are in no way
opposing its being thrown open
for the white man.
This information we obtain from
the interpreter, who acted for the
Indians and the government in
the deal whereby all arrangements
were made for allotment of lands,
etc. It will be May i, likely, be
fore all the agricultural land is al
lotted, and it will be as late as
August or September before the
Reservation is thrown open to the
prospector.
The Reno papers will have to
dig up some better excuse to keep
people out of the Mason Valley
country.

Jas. M. B. Irvine, of the Electric

tral office, for the time-being, will
be at the Mason Valley Drug
Store, but the company will event
ually build an office of its own.
The line now reaches from Wa
buska to Nordyke, taking in Yer
ington, the Bluestone and a num
ber of ranches. About 65 boxes
have been contracted for and will
be put in just as speedily as pos
sible, while it is more than likely
that over 100 boxes will be in use
before the end of the mouth. The
equipment is first-class so far as
boxes and switch are concerned,
and will soon be furnished with a
good pole line and extended to
Smith Valley and Gardnerville;

Deifaess Canaot be Cared
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion ot the ear.
There is only wav to cure deaf ness,
and that is by constitutional reme
dies. Deafness is caused by an in
flamed condition of the mucous lin
ing of the eustachian tube. When
this tube is inflamed you have a
rumbling sound or imperfect hear
ing, and when it is entirely closed,
deafness is the result, and unless the
inflammation can be taken out and
the tube restored to its normal con
dition, hearing will be destroyed for
ever; nine cases out of ten are
caused by catarrh, which is nothing
but an inflamed condition ot the mu
cous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars
tor any case of deafness (caused by
catarrh), that cannot he cured by
Hall’s Cataarh Cure. Send tor cir

Broke Jail.
Last Friday night a man named
Dalton, who had been working on
the Miller ranch, was arrested in
town and charged with disturbing
the peace. He had been up to
an Indian camp and virtually de
molished one of the wickiups. In
about two hours after Dalton had
been placed in jail he appeared
on the street, visited the saloons,
and finally took a horse belonging
to Frank Osborn, which was hitch
ied near the Owl saloon, and
I struck out. An investigation
showed that Dalton had dug out
of his cell by removing a large
stone nearly two feet square. He
rode the horse to Wabuska and
there turned the animal loose,
probably boarding a freight train
for the south. The horse was re
covered by the officers, but Dalton
has not been apprehended.
