Nevada, is second-class mail matter. Nevada’s Prosperity Prosperity first came to Nevada in 1859, when the Comstock lode, at Virginia City, was discovered. Since then the State has period ically contributed her full share to the output of gold, silver and lead, and soon promises to add very substantially to the copper pro duction of the world. In her early history, the rapid development of the Comstock, of the mines of Austin, Tusearora, Pioche, White Pine and a score of other and only a little less noted camps, gave Nevada the name of the “Silver State.” Eureka added materially to the silver production, but it also produced lead by the thousands of tons. In the ’7o’s Eureka was one of the most im portant lead-mining districts in the world. In recent years the discovery of a new and rich silver-gold district at Tonopah once more attracted attention to Nevada, and that at a time when mining within the State had dwindled for various reasons to a very unimportant industry. It seems strange that so little gold should have been found in Nevada during the earlier years, when tlie most vigorous prospect ors and investors the West ever saw were searching everywhere for mineral, but this appears to have been wholly accidental, for the gold was there. With Tonopah as a new center from which prospectors might ex plore the country, came the dis covery of Goldfield and later of Bullfrog, Manhattan, Kawich, Buckskin, Ramsey and of a dozen or more new gold camps. It looks as though Mr. Roberts, Director of the United States mint at Wash ington. was right w hen he said re cently, "gold mining in Nevada is only in its infancy," and that gold production of that State during the next few years will show a greater increase than that of any other re gion of the world. It is estimated that the gold pro duction this year will reach $15, 000,ooo, while the.promise for the \ ears to come is most assuring, be cause of the many camps having veins earrving gold, siver, copper, lead, zinc and other minerals of economic importance. Some of these are not at present commer cially available, owing to isolated situation; but a.> transportation problems are being rapidly solved, these more isolated mines will come within the influence of im proved conditions. Many places at present held temporarily in check bv uncompletion of pro jected railroads, or the bringing in of water supplies will come into prominence and public favor. The measure of success will be largely determined by the real value of the mineral deposits, but in scarcely less degree by the com petency and management of the great low grade mines of the State, High grade ore Nevada has al ways had, and probably will con tinue to have for many years to come, but there is low grade ore there, too—millions of tons of it, constituting an almost immeasur able asset. It remains for capital in the hands of competent, dis creet management to convert these large ore bodies into profit, and this is what will be done. High grade ores always supply the incentive, and often the need ed capital as well, to develop lower properties. It is a fact well worth remembering that the principal great mines of the world—the en during mines which have done more than anything else to make mining a legitimate and largely profitable business—were low grade mines. The mines of this class include such gold properties as the Homestake and Treadwell; such copper properties as the Rio Tinto, Granby and Britania, and those of Lake Superior; such sil ver-lead mines as the Bunker Hill & Sullivan, and such lead and zinc mines as many of those of Missouri. Great bodies of low grade ore will yet do more for Nevada;s future prosperity than most per sons think. Already the phenom enal deposits of Rlv are develop ing in a way that gives unmistak able evidence of what may be an ticipated for the future.—Los An geles Mining Review. Food don’t digest? Because the stom ach lacks some one of the essential di gestants or the digestive juices are not properly balanced. Then, too, it is this undigested food that causes sourness and painful indigestion. Kodol For Indiges tion should be used for relief. Kodol is a solution of vegetable acids. It digests what you eat, and corrects the deficien cies of the digestion. Kodol conforms to the National Pure F'ood and Drug Daw. Sold here by G. I. Leavitt & Son. WESTERN PACIFIC NOW DOWN TO BUSINESS F. A. Wadleigh. assistant general passenger agent of the Denver & .Rio Grande, and F. M. Lampton, assisant general freight agent, made the trip from Denver to the present terminus of the Western Pacific, about 140 miles west of Salt Lake, several days ago. It is believed that the purpose of their trip was on business connected with the op eration of trains lietween Salt Lake and Bews Siding, where the Gould line con nects with the Nevada Northern. Vice-President Schlacks and General Manager Ridgway have been giving this matter considerable attention duang the last two weeks, and as the time for making connection with the Nevala Northern is rapidly approaching, the Western Pacific officials think that it is time for the road to get dow n to busi ness. The graders for the Western Pacific are within three miles of Bews Siding. The tracklayers are some distance be hind, but if the plans of the high offi cials are carried out, rails will be laid into Bews by August 1. When the road bed has been properly ballasted, the operation of trains will commence, giv ing residents of Rly direct connection with Salt Lake. CHURCH NOTICE There will be services at the Methodist Church Sundays as follows: Preaching in the morning at 11 o’clock, and in the evening at 7:45 o’clock; Sunday school at 12 m. Rev. T. H.
