Eurxka, Dm. 26, 1901, Editor SumiiXL—Sir: Would you kindly correct an error in atatement in lent week’* 8intinel, in referenoe to Dennia Coyle ! The injury to hia arm waa eery aeri oua, eapeoially to the elbow joint. It wm a multiple oompound, oomminnted fracture. Both bone* were broken tome iochee below the elbow. The oleoranon prooeaa of nlna waa aeparated from abaft and drawn npon the humeront. A part of upper end of ulna waa broken off, aplit into two parta, and torn from ita teodonoua, ligamentoua and muaoular attachment*. The aoft tiaauea on outer aapect of elbow joint were ernehed and laoerated, expoaiog the interior of joint. The wound wm foil of debria, minute portion* of wood, orothed bone, etc. The arm waa inflamed and enormoutly awollen from abonlder to finger tipa. Such waa the condition of arm when Grat aeen by writer. There bad been muoh loaa of blood. The plain indication waa to cleanse the wound and place arm at rest until swelling and inflammation would have somewhat subsided, and as far aa possi ble prevent suppuration. Thia was done. The wound waa irregated twioe a day with an antiseptio solution, and in this way kept in good oondition. Too much credit oannot be given to Mr. and Mrs. Fred Beck for the intelligent manner in whiob thia treatment was earried out. The result waa that Mr. Coyle and the arm were in very good condition, con sidering the severity of the injury, when he reaohed Eureka. Thia waa shown by the way he bore the journey from Eu reka to Salt Lake. He was not emaci ated, but in very good flesh, free from pain and fever, and there was very little discharge from the wound. At no time waa there any doubt but that the arm oould be saved. The ques tion waa how far its functions could be restored after so much destruction of tissue. Had the wound not been kept clean and in a healthy oondition, not only the arm, but Mr. Coyle's life would have been endangered. Blood poisoning was averted by careful antiseptic treat ment, and for this all concerned should be thankful. Let us hope that the use of the arm may be fully restored. L. A. Habcocrt, M. D.

It will keep np with the procession and will shortly be issued two times a week. We are still ahead of the Iteno Jour* nal scribe. He boasts of nineteen li* censed gambling games in Reno. Tonopah has twenty with two more to be added to the list in a few days. Nye county has collected about $15, 000 for taxes. It will not be long be fore the county will be paying all bills against it with "long green." The bul lion tax of 1902 will wipe out the in debtedness. The Sodaville-Tonopah telephone is progressing. The poles are now set to Summit Springs. A crew of six white men will be put to digging holes from Crow Springs to meet the gang working this way. The ore production of Tonopah has blocked every smelter on the Pacific Coaat. Selby is flooded with the rich ore of this camp and gave orders to ship no more. The smelters of Ever ett and Tacoma have enough on hand to keep them busy for two months to come, and the orders have been re ceived to "ship no more for the pre sent; our yards are piled high with Tonopah ore.” John Npark*' Ureal Mieer. The Daily Drovers’ Telegram says: The thoroughbred Hereford steer, Alamo Champion, sold by John Sparks of Reno recently to A. Weber of Chicago, was just as fine as be looked. The live weight of this steer was 1,860 pounds, the dead weight, 1,305 pounds, green weight of the hide 85 pounds; total cost to Weber at IQI4 cents per pound, $100.65. Alamo Champion dressed 70.1 percent, which means that that percentage was avail able for beef purposes. The Armour Packing Company, which dressed the steer, report to the Telegram that It was the highest percentage ever real ized on any animal ever dressed by the Armour Packing Company. Sixty per cent is considered good on ordinary cattle and from 65 to 67 per cent on unuBual cattle. A SlriD(t Median. Charles Cato and A. O. Cato, two brothers who separated in Sweden 30 years ago, met again for the first time recently in an Everett, Wash., store. A. O. Cato, who is the elder of the two, left his Swedish home just three decades ago. Coming to America, be prospered, and soon stopped writing home. All trace of him was lost. Ten years later Charles Cato came to this country with the double object of mak ing money and finding his brother. After repeated searches he gave up the quest long ago. Now it appears that both men have been living in Everett, for two years past. They were standing almost side by side when a storekeeper called one of them by name. His brother turned and in an instant they recognized each other. Fate had brought about their re-union where an anxious search bad failed. Masks! Masks!
