Opportunities for Cyanide Plante. Reno Journal: Cyanide plants have •prong op in nearly every county of Ne vada. Tbe industry ie a paying one, and promisee to be one of tbe leading item* in Nevada's fature. Tbe great amount of mining and milling that has gone on in Nevada for the last thirty years has left in it* wake vast piles of tailing*; some of these dumps are strictly high grade and othera run to lower values, but aa tbe cyaoiding process is not pn expen sive method of leeching tailing* moat any value will pay for the working. There are extensive dump* of tailing* scat tered throughout the Silver State which will require a long period of time to work up, and a small fortune await* the lucky man who buys np these oncc-oon •idered worthless dumps. Heavy weigh* Three Healhe' Calf. Tbe Carson Appeal says that Walter Cbedio had a oalf hung up in his shop Sunday that weighed 264 pounds. It was a grade Hereford and was but three mouths old when it went to the block. The animal came originally from John Sparks’ stock, Washoe county, and it would seem impossible to beat this re markable showing. This tsaohes beef raiser* to get first-olasa stook. When you can turn in a three months' oalf which dressed nearly 300 pounds it pays to raise such animals. It costs no more to feed suoh stock than it does scrub stock and the results make suoh a mag nificent showing that one oan soaroely oredit it. No breed of cattle ever raised can surpass suoh results.
