MINES PATRIOTICALLY DOING THEIR DUTY Many mines are striving to get out a creditable production of precious metals absolutely necessary to suc cess of the war; although It is gen erally understood that there Is little money In mining now. In comparison with profits in 1916 and 1917.

This Ir seen in an Indicated reduc tion this year in dividends.

A. Lemmon In Reno to day. “Information has reached this of fice that feed wheat is being sold at profiteering prices, both by farmers and by the grain trade.” commented Mr. Lemmon.
