A new sign, painted by Blanchard, an nounces this fact. Honey Crop Sold. J. S. Armstrong, representing the Gregory Fruit Co„ of Colton, Cal., was here this week and has purchased the entire houey crop of Warren and Leavitt. This con sists of between 50 and 60 tons of comb honey, for which 9c was paid, and 10 or 15 tons of extracted honey at 5c. Mr. Armstrong will probably purchase the balance of the honey raised here, which will be about 40 or 50 tons more, mak ing the output for the valley this year something like 115 tons. Mr. Armstrong says that Mason Valley honey beats all the honey in the world. New Depot for Wabuslu. The long talked of new freight and passenger depot for Wa huska was begun this week Thursday. The lumber for this structure has been on the ground for some time. A force of eight carpenters is now at work and the building will be rushed to completion as soon as possible. It will be located just east of the present depot and will be large and commodious, but just what the dimensions will be we have not learned. Sioux Visitors. Three quite noted Sioux Indians paid Mason Valley a visit the first of this week. Their names are Cloud Horse, Chasing Hawk and Bear-Cojnes Out, all from the Rosebud Agency in South Dakota, and their object here was to see Jack Wilson, the Indian prophet, on some important business. Capt Dave accompanied the three Sioux from Reno. They are large, good looking Indians, seemingly intelli gent, but stoical and reserved. They held a pow-wow at the In dian camp above Bovard’s Sunday night, talked with Jack Wilson and smoked the pipe of peace all round. They made Wilson a present of a beautifully carved stone pipe, and, having accom plished their end, just what, was not made clear to us, left for their homes Monday morning. The Morning Sun Mine. Drysdale and Wilson, who own the Morning Sun mine, situated on the East Walker River about twelve miles south of Yerington, expect to begin some extensive development work on the proper ty very soon. A contract which they recently let to ruu ioo feet of tunnel has been completed, and a fine body of ore has been open ed up which averages to to 12 per cent, in copper and $3 in gold. With development work contin ued this property is liable to prove a valuable one. New Safe Arrives. A large new safe arrived here last Saturday tor the Lyon County Bank. The safe is of the Mosler make, manufactured in Hamilton. Ohio, and we understand cost something like $2,000. It weighs several tons and is a complicated piece of machinery, guaranteed to be fire and burglar proof. The purchase of this new safe was made necessary by the increase in the business of the bank and the amount of money that is now nec essary to keep on hand. Visits His Boyhood Home. A. L. Daniels, wife and daugh ter, of Confidence, Tuolumne county, California, arrived here Wednesday to visit J. W. McAllis ter and family. They were ac companied by Mrs. J. C. Harrell, Mr. McAllister’s mother, and made the trip with a team. Mr. Mc Daniels spent his boyhood days and is well and favorably known here. His father at one time own ed the Jim Smart ranch and the Bluestone mine. Visitors from Utah. E. M. Clark, E. W. Clark and Frank Pierce, of Salt Lake City, Utah, paid Yerington and Mason Valley a visit the first of this week to look over the mining situation. They are interested in the prop erty of which Mr. O. H. Sonne is superintendent, and after visiting that property and others in the district left here Tuesday morning very much pleased with what they saw. and of the opinion that this section will soon be known as the greatest copper-producing district in the state. The Unique. Mrs. J. Sweat and Mrs. Lizzie Baker have opened a fancy goods store in the Sweat residence and are prepared to do plain and fancy sewing at reasonable prices. They will also carry a select stock of novelties in their line. This is a business that should pay here, and your patronage should go to these people instead of away from home. Horse Strayed There strayed from the Jim Wright ranch, on East Walker, last week, a buckskin colored mare, aged io years; S brand on left hip; two collar sores on shoul der. Finder of animal will obtain suitable reward by returning mare to J. W. McAllister, Yerington, Nev. Notice to Women of Woodcraft.

You can also get fresh bread and doughnuts, and plea and cakes baked to order. Two New Towns for Lyon. The new mining camp of Ram sey, which is flow attracting so much attention, is in Lyon county, and the new town of Apache, on the line of the Nevada and Cali fornia road, only about ten miles from the camp of Ramsey, is also in Lyon county. This latter town will no doubt become the supply point for the mining camp, as it is the closest point on the railroad. For the present the best place to outfit and secure supplies is Day ton. Ramsey is making good by ex tracting from several leases ship ping ore, and this ore is going to the Nevada Reduction Works at Dayton. From all accounts the camp will be a good one, and the town of Apache ought to grow into a good business place with the trade of the mining town com ing that way. When Registration Closes. As there is some misunderstand ing as to the time the registration books close this year, the editor of the Elko Independent submitted the matter to Judge Brown and got his opinion. After reading the law, Judge Brown held that the books close this year at 6 o’clock p. m. on Saturday, September 8. The law reads that the books shall be open on all legal days from and after the tst day of June and prior to the toth day of September prior to any general election. As the ioth day of September falls on Monday this year, the last legal day for registration will be Satur day, September 8. Voters should make a note of this and not put off registration until it is too late. Remember that you must register this year before 6 o’clock p. m. on Saturday, September 8 if you want to vote. Yerington Copper King. The Yerington Copper King Mining Company is the name of a new company formed in Salt Lake recently to develop some copper claims in this district. It is cap italized at Si,000,000, the par value of each share being $1. The offi cers of the company are W. H. Booth, President; J. H. Turner, YTice-President; Wm. Keyting, Secretary; Wm. B. LaVeille, Treasurer. These, with J. W. Heywood, constitute the Board of Directors. The propeity is that known as the Craig claims, lying a short distance southwest of Yer ington. It is very promising ground and is located in a proved copper belt. Development work will show up a good mine without doubt. New Lighting Plant. A. M. Rich has been here this week installing another X-Ray Acetyline gas plant. This plant is being put in to furnish light for the Littell store and his dwelling house, the Davidson residence and the new assay office of Wood and MacPherson, and has a capacity of forty 24-candle power lights. These plants give a nice, clear, strong, light, which is not hard on the eyes. The light can be in creased in intensity by using a mantle, also. Mr. Rich asserts that these plauts are perfectly safe, being a great improvement on the kind that were put in use some years ago. They certainly give a very nice light. Inspecting Copper Properties. J. I. Coddington, a mining man of Denver, Colo., was an arrival here Thursday looking for copper properties. Mr. Coddington has so far only visited a small portion of the district, but is very favor ably impressed with what he has seen. He hps been located in the southern country fora few months, and expressed the wish that he had dropped into this district be fore all the developed properties had been taken over. He has seen things in the shape of copper properties that look good to him, and. is representing people who may take interest enough in some of these prospects to secure them and develop them.
