First Assistant Postmaster General Jones says that the Poeloffice Depart ment has already begun to experience some indications of the approach of the holidays in the matter of packages containing presents, these being pack ages sent abroad thus early in order to reach their destination in ample time. As the time gets nearer he says that the dead letter office will have a large number of these packages which have been missent. Mr. Jones, who appro dates the sentiment contained in a Christmas gift, hopes by a circular he has issued to lessen the number of packages that go estray each year. The circular urges persons who mail such packages to be careful and see that the proper amount of postage has been paid and that the article has been properly addressed. He has just had occasion to address a letter to a person in South Africa, telling him that a cer tain package is held for postage. The package had been sealed or there would be enough postage to pay its way. As it is, the man in South Africa can, by remitting a dollar and a half, receive by mail a 50-cent necktie. There was in the I’ostofllce not long ago a pack age of photographs. They were un sealed, and without writing the post age wguld have been eleven cents, but the age of a child was written on one, and it was over two dollars. Another instance recalled by Mr. Jones is the case of a package in tin addressed to a man in Ireland. The postage was over three dollars. It was a can of cranberries. Mr. Jones says he scarce ly ho|>eB to educate the people, but he hopes his circulars may save some packages and presents from going es tray, and for that reason he sent them out to be posted in every office, asking people to look more carefully into the regulations relating to postage, and see that their parcels are properly mailed. —-+-■— Nu|i«rltilen<l«nrB Krporl, In the 2t>th annual report of the Ku. reka Consolidated Mining Company, wo find the following statement of the Superintendent: Ki reka, Nev., Oct. 2d, 1895. To the President and Trustees of the Kureka Consolidated Mining Com pany, San Francisco, Cal.: Ce.vti.emen—During the year ending September doth, 1895, we have ship ped to the Oermania Lead Works, Salt Lake, 1,500 tons of ore and 11 24-100 tons of jigging8 from the furnace dumps, extracted on the tribute sys tem, all the work in the mine having been performed by tributers except the timbering, tracking, etc., that was necossarv to keep the main levels and shaft in condition. Two-thirds of the ore was taken from the west side of the hill or *' Lava t>eds,” w here as most of the work is on the surface the men have been greatly retarded by the un usually severe wind storms all sum mer. Wre have 33 tributers now work ing. The men at furnace dumps are still working, and will continue while weather |>ermits, but the dumps have been pretty well worked over and their product will be small. Respectfully, H. C. McTersey, Superintendent. Mill Bogus Bullion. The Hank of California at Virginia City came near being victimized by a bogus bullion swindle a few days ago. It bought a bar of bullion from a Por tuguese named Itoeas for $1,000, the bar being stain pod by a reputable Comstock assayer as containing (1,088. OS of gold and silver. The office after ward found it worth only (3 36. In the meantime a man wearing a very apparent disguise had been arrested by the officers, and tools for marking bullion bars were found upon him. He gave the name of McDonald. A fur ther investigation showed that Iiosas had sold the bullion to the bank for McDonald, and possibly did not know of its spurious nature. The scheme was a clever one and only miscarried by accident._^ A rortnue Awaltlug. A communication was received by the Virginia Chronicle last week from the Harry N. Morse detective agency asking for information concerning the whereabouts of ono Edward McArdle, or if dead, any lawful heirs of said per son. The party above named was a miner at Hamilton, Nevada, in the year 1871. When last heard from he was in the White Pine country in 1873. He is said to have been at Virginia City at ono time. The reason for this inquiry is that a sum of money is on hand ready to be paid over to said iierson or his lawful heirs upon proper identification. Mrs. John Tassell, whose maiden name was McArdle, has a cousin by the name of Edward McArdle some where in this part of the world, but has not heard from him in many years. Moll or Honor.

The famine that decimated Ireland fifty years ago was caused by the blighting of the potatoes—then the staple food of the peasantry. The blight literally walked in darkness, though the sickness destroyed at noonday. Hays Francis Power Cobbe in her “Life”: I happen to be able to recall pre cisely the day, almost the hour, when the blight fell on the potatoes and caused the great calamity. A party of us were driving to a 7 o’clock dinner. As we passed a remarkably fine field of potatoes in blossom, the scent come through the open windows of the car riage and we remarked to one another how splendid was the crop. Three or four hours later, as we re turned home in the dark, a dreadful odor came from the same field, and we exclaimed, " something has happened to those potatoes! They don’t smell as they did when we passed them on our way out.” Next morning there was a wail from one end of Ireland to the other. Every field was black, and every root ren dered unfit for human food. And there were nearly eight millions of people depending principally upon those po tatoes for existence. No Looter ■ Now(S) Woman. May 17, 1802, we dropped the rattan and the primer, left the schoolroom, and boldly (though blindly) jumped over into the next field—the field of journalism. The venture was regarded by many as being intensely rash, and not a few predicted that the News would not survive a month; but, thanks to a kind public, a liberal pat ronage enabled it to exist, not only the six months but seven times six months, and barring the general de pression that has affected every branch of business, it has been prosperous. With this issue we sever our connec tion with this paper and retire to pri vate life. There are many phases of newspaper life that are very agreeable and these we leave with regret. Other features are not so pleasant and we part from them without a sigh. To the scores of friends who have extend ed encouragement and aid we are deeply and sincerely thankful, and their kindness can never be effaced from the tablets of our memory. We hope that our successors may receive a fair proportion of the public patron age, and to them we delliver up the editorial pen, the pastepot and the scissors. Miss Annie Martin. TralulDK m Locomotive. It may not be generally known that locomotives intended for express trains require as much training, in their way, for fast running as do race horses. The Pennsylvania Railroad Company builds its own engines, and those built for express trains arejenown as class P. They are very large and built, with slight variations, after the pattern of the big English engine imported into this country several years ago, and which at that time was a curiosity in its way. When one of these big en gines is taken out of the shops to be placed on the road, instead of putting it to the work it is intended for at once it is run for two or three weeks on some one of the local branches in order to train it, so to speak, for faster running. By this means all the bearings and journals connected with the running gear become settled to their work, for should anything about the new ma chine not work harmoniously there is ample time to adjust the defect. Usu ally the new engine proves trouble some on account of its propensity to make fast time, and at almost every station the train is found to be a little ahead of schedule time and must wait for from ten seconds to a minute.— Philadelphia Record. A ('nltrralij Hulldluir Burned. Last Saturday afternoon, during a heavy wind, emoke was seen issuing from the roof of the mechanical build ing of the State University, says the Reno Gazette, and in less than an hour it was entirely consumed together with its fine equipment of lathes, black smiths tools, and about 60 sets of car penters tools. Several students, who had rooms in the upper part of the building, lost about half their books and clothing. The little mill and smelter used for testing ores in con nection with the mining department was also burned. The loss on the me chanical building will be about $10, 000, with an insurance on the building and machinery of $4,000. The Hiller A Lux Properly. Henry Miller, the cattle king, was presented with an agreement last week providing for the distribution of the vast property of the firm of Miller A Lux. He declined to sign it until it had been examined by his attorneys. The agreement provides for the ap pointment of a commissioner by each side, the two commissioners to select a third. They shall proceed to divide the Miller A Lux property, giving half to each side. In his testimony last week Miller said the firm owned 150, 000 head of cattle, 125,000 sheep, 10, 000 hogs and 5,000 or tt.COO horses. Card of Thanks. Mr. and Mrs. William J. Giles, and Mr. and Mrs. Thomas II. Williams, desire to return their heartfelt thanks to their neighbors and friends for the many kind services and attentions, as well as for the sympathy and condo lence extended on the occasion of the illness and demise of their late beloved son and brother, George W. Tingley. A. A. Smith, charged with attempt ing to poison Edward Ixinl, Monico Echeverria and three Indians, near Pyramid I.ako by putting strychnine in their salt, has been bound over by Judge Lynn ol lieno with bonds fixed at (1,500. THE CORRECT TIME. The correct time comes into Phila delphia every day at noon by telegraph from the United States time observa tory at Washington, where the "drop ball" makes an electric contact that sends the signal all over the country. The first clock in the city communi cating with the observatory wire is at the Maritime Kxchange. At 50 min utes to 11 the hands of the clock auto matically click into place by the action of the magnet and the little train of wheels attached to it. Thus the Wash ington time ball becomes at once the authority for all clocks and an infal lible adjuster. The statehouse clock is wound and regulated weekly by an expert chronometer maker, who sets hia own watch by Washington com municated time and carries it immedi ately to Independence Hall. Many large manufacturers and business places where it is necessary on account of the number of men employed to have strictly conscientious time em ploy a man to wind, keep in order and regulate their clocks the year round. Clocks kept closely to the mark in this way are very seldom in need of exten sive repairs, and like intelligently reg ulated watches have less tendency to go wrong. The Washington observatory clock runs for years together and has never varied more than six seconds for any one year. It is kept true by continual quadrant observations on the altitude of the sun at its meridian. As the earth’s revo lutions become slower only by the fraction of a second in a thousand years it may be said that we are nnable to take advantage of the natural means afforded for absolute time regulations in spite of the care that has been ex ercised in the making of timepieces. For 26,000 years, since the first record ed mention of any instrument to meas ure time, in Isaiah xxxvii, 8, men have been at work constructing appli ances of all descriptions, all of them more or less faulty, to tell them when to eat, sleep and get np again. Is there no one to invent a fin de siecle watch that shall be able to keep up with the earth in point of exactitude? —Philadelphia Times. Might Oct m I.Irking. The Williamsburg (Mias.) Watch man gives a glowing lesson in news paper etiquette when it says: Some people think that an editor should be all nose and put his proboscis into every man’s afTaiis. Because a man edits a paper is no reason why he should inquire into the family history of every man in his community. It’s not our province as a newspaper man to go to a stranger when he comes to town and ask him if he has ever been in the asylum or if he is crazy. We might get a licking if we did such things. It’s not our business to take up every ru mor and give it dignity by publishing it. It’s not our profession to feed the public on sensational rot of a debased and degraded nature. Signs In lbs Desert. Signs in the desert, indicating the trails and giving directions to the near est springs and wells of fresh water, are to be erected by Arisona and Cali fornia in the desolate regions on either side of the Colorado river, where so many tragedies have occurred through miners and others losing their way or dying from thirst. The signs are high posts of gas pipe, with big squares of sheet iron at the top, and are painted red, as that is the color that can be Been the greatest distance in that re gion. The lettering will tell the dis tance from point to point and the lo cation of the nearest water holes. Broken (be Beeonl. Fort Deposit, Alabama, baa broken the record on babies, three mothers having given birth to ten children within a week. Just a week ago Mrs. Latimer, wife of a merchant, became the mother of two boys and a girl. The next day her neighbor, Mrs. Hunter, whose husband is a prominent farmer, followed suit with three babies. The next day Mrs. Champion proved her self the champion in fact as well as in name by capping the climax with four children at a birth. All the babies are well formed and healthy and the mo thers are doing well. Durrani OulUy. On Friday afternoon oi last week the jury in the Durrant case went out at 3 ;30 o’clock, on the conclusion of Judge Murphy’* charge, whfch occu pied one hour and thirty minutes in its delivery.

As a large number of exceptions were taken by defendant's counsel during the trial, the case will be appealed to the Su preme Court.___ Womru Mpottera During the last two months six wo men have been traveling on the South ern Pacific passenger trains as spot ters.

There has been quite a hopeful feeling generally, prevailing in Hamilton, that the old town which witnessed during 1868, ’60 and'70 the livliest times ever seen in Eastern Nevada, if not on the Coast, will again forge to the front. Never for years has the prospect looked so well as now; but owing to the low price of silver and lead very little work is now being prosecuted in White Pine Mining District. Other than California miners have found fame and fortune in South Afri can gold fields. P. J. Triggs, a Mon tana miner, has made half a million in lucky investments’, H. A. McMillan and M.
