The disease as developed here is not in as violent form as is an nounced from many other localities. While the disease has not spread here as it was expected it would, new cases are being reported, and it is thought some have not been report ed. , Among the new cases in Eureka announced during the weeks are: Harry Eather, John Cardanelli, Mrs. James Morrison and three-year-old child, Mrs. Amelia Fletcher, two children of Granville Fletcher, James Rattazzi. / Three of the W. R. Reynolds fam ily are reported to have been down with the disease.

Nine teachers are now down with influenza, and the attend ance the day before closing was only a little over 50 per cent. The trus tees issued a statement to the patrons of the schools in which it said: “From the best information we can get we believe the number of influenza cases in Reno is increasing. We believe that the attendance at school causes a part of this increase. Physicians report that since the opening of the schools the percentage of cases among the children has greatly increased, but we do not know the exact num ber of cases of influenza.” Twenty deaths were reported at Ely last week with 200 cases in that city.

TO DEVELOP ELKO OIL SHALE Southern Pacific Railroad and Bureau of Mine* Will Erect Large Experi mental Plant Winnemucca Star: Experiments in the extraction of oil from the shale beds near the town of Elko have been in progress for some time past and it is announced that operations in this line and on a commercial scale will be started by the Southern Pa cific Company, assisted by the pe troleum department of the bureau of mines. A reduction plant with a capacity of twenty-five tonsdaily will be transported to this plant from other ground owned by the railroad company. It is reported that this plant will cost approximately $20,000 and it is designed on the lines of Scottish shale oil plants. Another twenty-ton plant was built last year for experimental purposes by the Catlin Shale Company at a point one mile south of Elko, and so favorable were the results obtained that this company is now building a twenty-five ton plant, and it is said that equipment will be provided to re fine the oil produced there. Mana ger Catlin has been experimenting with the oil-bearing shales of this region for the past ten years. According to the Electrical World, Glasgow, Scotland, has a suburb without a single chimney.

I BRAZING FEES ADVANCE SHARPLY Will Be Increased About 65 Per Cent, Washington Adrices Sag Salt Lake Tribune Dec. 3: Graz ing fees in all National forests will be advanced about 65 per cent, accord ing to information received from Washington last night, next year over rates charged this year and last, and will be exactly double the rates that were in force in and prior to 1916. Announcement to this effect was made by the Secretary of Agri culture, who simultaneously an nounced that, beginning next season, five-year grazing permits will be is sued where desired by stockmen and where conditions permit. Under the new schedule, all graz ing fees are to be based on cattle rates, which will vary from 8 cents to a dollar and a half per head per year-long period. In Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Mon tana the rate on cattle for the full year will range from one dollar to one dollar and twenty cents. The rate for sheep and goats will be 25 per cent of the rate for cattle; horses will be 25 per cent more than cattle, and the swine rate will be 75 per cent of the cattle rate. The old method of computing proportionate changes for grazing during only part of each year will be followed, namely, 10 percent of the yearly rate for each month. Secretary Houston had intended to raise grazing rates gradually, be ginning in 1917 with a 33 1-3 percent advance for that year, another third the next year- and by 1919 put in ef fect rates double those that pre vailed in 1916, but disturbed condi tions led the secretary to advance rates only 25 per cent in 1917, since which time there has been no fur ther advance, because of war condi tions. The secretary has already begun is surance of five-year permits, which are subject to an annual reduction of not more than 5 per cent to provide for new settlers. New Initiative Act Talked of in Reno That an initiative Act will be pro posed in the next Legislature permit ting the sale of light wines and beer exclusively for family consumption is the report that is being circulated about Reno.

An initiative Act must be signed by not less than 10 per cent of the total number of electors voting for Justice of the Supreme Court at the last preceding election and must be pre sented to the Legislature not less than thirty days before the session con venes.—Reno Gazette. “Flu” Bad at Lovelock The influenza situation at Lovelock and Battle Mountain is very serious and inability to secure sufficient nurses to care for the sick is making matters worse, according to urgent telegrams received by William Wood burn, United States District Attor ney, from Rudolph Nenzel, secretary of the Red Cross at Lovelock.
