There are (5,000,000 acres of culti vated land in the lower Nile Valley, all of which is irrigated. It sup ports a population of 5,000,000. Tho Washington Star thinks it is a lucky campaign orator who does not have to depend on his audienoe’s forgetting some of the things he said during previous campaigns. Lightning has killed so many cat tle while they were standing near wire fences that it is proposed to di minish the danger by means of ground wires which will conduct the electricity into the earth. It may interest thepublio to know, while the Galveston horror is still fresh in their minds, that the victims of the Johnston flood numbered 2,295 and the Porto Rico hurricane killed about 3,000 people. Tho postal service establishment of the United Htates is the greatest bus iness concern in the world. The revenue of the postoffice of New York is more than eight millions of dollars yearly, with a net profit of five millions of dollars. Texas lias added a unique pago to history by punishing with imprison ment for life eight men for lynch ing. The mob lynched James Humphries and two sons because they wero suspected of stealing a a bog. Both lynched and lynchers were white. The Lake Shore Railroad Com pany is dovising a pension scheme for tho benefit of employes of long standing who have reached an age of retirement. It will be similar to that now in force on the Pennsylva- ■ nia railroad, the company giving a lump sum as the nucleus of a pen' ■ion fund to bo enlarged and main- | turned by a 1 per cent assessment on the monthly wages of employes. The Indianapolis Journal says: j The physicians of Indiana who have ! inaugurated a war against the indis- j criminate sale of cocaine have set an example worthy to be followed by their professional brothers elsewhere. ; The increasing uso of this pernicious drug is in no small part due to j loose practice among druggists, doc tors and proprietary medicine men and it is an evil of no small piopor tions. _ “The transfer of sugar production from the plantations of the tropics to the farms of the temperate zone is illustrated by figures recently pub-! lished by the Treasury bureau of Statistics," remarks the California Fruit Grower. “They show that 95 , per cent of the sugar crop of the world was in 1840 supplied by sugar cane, a tropical product, and but 5 per cent from beets, a product of the temperate zone; while in 1899 but 34 per oent of the world's sugar sup ply was from cane and 60 per oent from beets. How much of this is due to the disappearance of slave la-; bor whioh existed in all oane-pro ducing territory at the beginning of the period under review ia left to the 1 consideration of economists and soci- 1 ologista; but it is a faot that the world’s cane-sugar crop of 1899 would little more than supply the demands of the United States alone, after filling the needs of the coun tries in which it is produced.” Naloou Willi a Jail Attaelimeut. There is a well-known resort in Rsmo that runs its own jail, regard less of county or town officials, says the Gazette, When a man has stood up to the bar for a couple of hours and then becomes boisterous he is quietly put into the jail and kept ; there until sober. lie Wilted. "What if I were one of those hus* ! bands, my dear, who get up cross in j the morning and bang things about and kick everything over just because the coffee is cold ?” "John,” responded his wife, “1 j would make it hot for you.” As her words admitted of more than one interpretation John Baid nothing about the coffee. THE KlTt’HE Or COPPER. *® Ooubi m to the Future of the Red Metal. Boston capitalists and brokers are convinced that copper properties offer the greatest inducements (or invest ments that can be found at the pres ent time. The Copper, Zinc and I<ead Review of last week has the following: “The scientists on both sides of the sea have come to the conclusion that copper is to be king; that in future domains of industry its production can never exceed the demand; that elec tricity is destined to be the motive power of the new century, and until some substitute can be discovered or invented, copper will be more and more needed; needed, in fact, faster than it can be produced. “For there is really an industrial revolution impending, and the ad vance during the past ten years, when men wore, so to speak, studying the alpha bet of electricity, has been great. To American copper exports the increase for these ten years has been from *•-’,300,000 to *36,000,000 annually. In ten years more, whenever possible in running manufactures, steam will be dispensed with and some river a mile or twenty-five miles away will have to be doing the work and sending it in a sublimated form on a wire to turn the mills. “Coal has already so advanced in Kurope that it is a serious matter for manufacturers. The natural infer ence is that if a man in America, or a company in America, has a real first— class copper mine he or they have something better than gold, something better than silver.” EDINON'N LATENT DINI'OVEBY. I'oaierM Coal Into Electricity Without l<ae or Dynamo*. Edison's latest achievement ie the discovery of a process of converting L-oal directly into electricity without the use of engines and dynamos. Mr. Edison has predicted that such a thing would some time be accomplished, and according to the report in ques tion he is about to produce the results himself. The new plan is expected to revolu tionize the use of electricity in homes, jffices and self-moving vehicles. It will make it possible for private elec tric lighting plants to be maintained in louses at a small expense, and in gen eral it may be said that it will have i wonderful effect upon all methods ol propulsion. It is said that in Mr. Edi ion’s new arrangements a simple and nexpensive machine takes the place A a commonly used dynamo. Indiana Who May Tote. New York Post: At the approaching ’residential election a considerable >ody of new voters, made up of Indi tes whose tribal relations have been iroken up and who have become full :itizens of the United States, will help lomewhat to increase the uncertainty )f the result. It will be found when he present census is completed, that he number of taxable Indians has in :reased by reason of the breaking up )f more reservations and the enforced ndependence of certain tribes that lave been the wards of the Govern* nent for years. And if the policy hat is being pushed is carried forward lunsistently nearly every Indian in the :ountry will be enfranchised before mother Presidential election. Ulwxow A Western. Salt Lake Tribune: Otto Stalmann, tenoral Manager of the Glasgow & Western Company’s mines, mills and uuelter in Humboldt and White Pine :ounties, Nevada, has returned to own to prepare for the approaching neeting between the local and foreign nterests. Mr. Stalmann says the im poverished condition of the water sup ply during a season which has been unprecedentedly dry, has been a source of extreme embarrassment to the plants and properties and that the effort now is to overcome it thet it may not occur in the future. Nevada Borax Industry. The soda works at Owens Lake is employing 300 men now. The com pany's crop of borax this year will be over 10,000 tons of the refined article. The company is composed of H. M. Yerington, the Sharon estate and J. (L Laws of Hawthorne. It has over £500,000 invested in the plant, and the product is the best borax to be found on the coast. Just now they are figur ing with Japan for a sale of 10,000 tonB of refined borax. Nweets to tUe Nweet. Tss Garden Drips it to »bs olotely pur kbit syrup For tkle by til grootrt. • ■ ISINU HOTES. Thirteen thousand eight hundred and forty-five tons of American cop per, wortli nearly $4,300,000, left the port of New York for Europe, during the month of August. Mining and Scientific Press: So far as known the Belgian Government is the only one having an official rule that when men are being hoisted or lowered in a mine shaft a capable assistant is required to stand by the engineer to replace him in case of sud den indisposition. California Miner: The lead mines of Southeastern Missouri producing on an average an ore that carries from three to four per cent mineral is a bonanza, and two per cent is about pay. The output is simply crushed and concentrated, resulting in the yield of a very clean galena. The plans of the Comstock Pump ing Association are understood to mean even more than the mere un watering of the flooded levels, which work is going steadily on. It is conceived that sinking the Osbiston or Combination shaft to a depth of 5,000 feet would demonstrate the existence of large ore bodies at that depth. Probably the highest altitude of any smelter in the world is the smelting plant of the Backus & Johnson Com pany, Casapalca, Peru, on the Oroyo railway in the Andes mountains, 13. <>00 feet above the sea, and about 100 miles inland. Nearly 500 men are employed, and the annual profit is said to be about $100,000. STATE HEWS ITEMS. The construction of a creamery plant at Lovelock has begun. Charles Werther, an old resident of Douglas county, has been arrested for cattle stealing. A postoflice has been established at Fay, Lincoln county, Nevada, with Wm. Defriese as postmaster. The postoffice at Oriental, Esmer alda county, Nevada, has been ordered discontinued and mail sent to Lida. Mrs. Mary Townsend of Portland, Or., has been appointed a cook in the Nevada Indian school at $480 per an num. Oscar lfildebrant, the piaDO tuner, met with an accident at lovelock on the night of October 5, by which one of his legs was broken just above the ankle. The Secretary of the Interior has approved for patent to the State of Nevada a list of lands selected under the school grant, embracing 22,200 acres in the Carson City district. A pool room is to be opened at Reno, and the Gazette suggests that it would be a good idea for the next Legisla ture to pass a law making the con ducting of such schemes unlawful in this State. Elko Independent: Judging from the anti-lottery planks in the State and county platforms, the lottery amendment to the State constitution will be unceremoniously killed by the next Legislature. The offer of the Elleford Company to give a performance in Reno on Sun day night for the benefit of the Gal veston relief fund, has been declared off on account of a kick against Sun day theatricals by Riverside Bible thumpers. GENERAL NEWS SUMMARY. The California Exposition Commis sioners have decided to present their effects and exhibits to prominent Frenchmen and to the museums, hos pitals and schools of Paris. The Paris Journal publishes a dis patch from its Rome correspondent, saying the Italian Government has sent to Washington a protest against the “excessive liberty” accorded an archists in the United States. Negotiations between the live Ya qui Indian emissaries and President Diaz for the settlement of the hostili ties now existing between the Yaquis and the Mexican Government have failed to accomplish anything.
