Many jrimtl things besides liberty me pivwrvetl by the exercise (if eternal vij-i'iiine," imk this, to yetlier with the story of the man wild locked the stable ufter his mule hint been hto!en, should serve as ripe food for thought by our citizens gen erally, but particularly the mer chants and property owners. Up to tin' present Touopuh has enjoyed complete immunity from the ravages of tire. Its rapid M.rides toward eityhood have not been impeded by even a sinylc eoiitla,'ralion, and the fruits of the toil and industry of its builders are to day happily in intact and unscotched by the "tire-fiend's breath. I'.-ovidenci. has been kind to us, hut it. is om- paramount duty to re member that I'rovidcnee in this, as in all other respects, approvingly "helps those who help themselves." No tfood citi.en of this rapidly jf row ing community, of which till have so much reason to feel proud, should al low past k'ood fortune to beyet on his part laxity or indiffcruncu in UiiardiniT iijfiiinst the ever present danger in our midst. The flickering candle or tuniiuMe-i-intf cedar luj of tiie man in the 'cut involves no less risk to the popular weal than does the ornamental oil lamp or discarded ciyar stump of the man domiciled in the hotel chamlM'i', or in a hand some residence on ('Diversity heights; and the empty boxes, waste paper, packing material and other intlama ble matter scattered indiscriminately in the rear of business establish ments, constitute, when unwatched and uu'iiai'dHd. as serious a menace to property as does the neyliifent or reckless handlingof kerosene, blasting powder and other explosive sub stances. l'endiuir the time when thp water system now bciiii; extended through the town shall have conveyed to the proposed reservoirs a supply suffi cient for the lire-extiii'MiishiiiL' ap paratus, for which public, spirited! citizens have subscribed, it is a duty ! incumbent upon all alike to vigilantly guard against the danger of tire. Improperly adjusted stove pipes, ami the dumping of ashes containing! smouldering emberx that, become reddened in the. breeze, are not the least dangerous things to whic h at tention might be called, and we trust the suggestion will meet the prompt approval of more than one resident of the town who at the present time are taking the responsibility of "playing with tire." - The great city of Chicago was laid in ashes by a single fcwing of the 1ail of Jlrs. I ) I.i'ary's cow, the animal s caudle appendage liciujf too forceful for the 1'i'slstant kerosene lamp used by the widow whilst milking, and may it never be said that a pan of ashes or a wabbling stove pipe, protruding from the roof of a miner's cabin was the cause of any like injury toTonopah - the queen city of the desert.

War-1 ren, from which tho followinjr ex-j cerpfs are taken, without attempt- j inK to Hive an idea of the general seojM'of the article. The writer is i the outran i.er and president of the Hut te-Tonopah compttnv. one of the strongest inininjf orjfani.afions in the camp : ' l-'or the last six months of the year I 1!H12 the estimated output from the Tonopah district is S,(III0,0"0, iind this is rather under than over the actual value. Anv ores of value less than fluo per ton are thrown over the dump. Development work is ,'o-1 ii)Lf aneao wiiu marvenuir, mhucs. jv nullu m J li t one-corpora! !-for-all, survi is i,nt a one-man or lion camp, but a free val of the fittest. Mizpah is a Hebrew word, and I am advised that the following is the translation : "The Lord be between you and me when we are separated one from the other." ' in two years the camp has (frown from a desert waste to the second i city in Nevada to what promises to j be one of the jfrcatest mining camps on earth ; from nothing to an up-to-1 dato-eity. Klectrie lights, water works, newspapers, bunks, stock ex i hatiffo, Masonic, and other secret organizations, miners' union, hotels, restaurants, telephones, first-class btisines houses of all kinds, charac ter and description. 1 have pic tured, in a way, only the bright side. It is no place for a drone, or a holx). Should you ifo there make up your mind to take the good with the bad, for there are blanks even in this new t.,1 , i . tr .1. . .!:....:.., 1.,...

It is my infor mation that Cohen, representing Do l.uniur, as well as otlmr expri'ts of note, in the early days gave the camp the double eross. 1 have only stated less than half the truth about this jfreat desert empire. Later on, as development advances, yon will hear from your correspondent again. It is a camp of law and order. No gun fighters, no pugs, no "blanks from Kodie." Property and life are safe, the law is olx'.ved. It would be a pleasure to write a book on this mining camp of the age of the growth of Ilutlcr from a tent to a city of 4. (MH) people, ith schools, churches, good society, cultured people and all that goes to make up a Christian community. Of course the rough edges of u mining camp are now there, but the good people are rearing upon foundations not less solid than .Mount Oddie (the land mark of the district), institi tious of a free, happy and united people.
