NEARLY ALL EUREKA SALOONS TO CONTINUE BUSINESS While the Outlook la Considered None Too Rosy, An Effort to Continue Business Will Be Made Nearly all the saloons in Eureka have decided to keep their places of business open after next Monday, when the new Prohibition law goes into effect in Nevada. They will dis pense cider, grape juice, soda water and other soft drinks, with cigars, tobacco and cigarettes. With card games and other attractions they are going to give the new situation a try and await developments, as many be lieve that something will turn up or transpire that will permit of their doing business again along the old lines. Pol lari & Herrera of the Europa Hotel plan to keep their bar open and furnish patrons with a line of wet goods—batring alcohol—that will please.

Later he plans to open the dining room in his hotel, but not until Spring. * Dan Morrison of the Brown Hotel will continue to keep his bar open under the changed conditions for the present, just to see hdW the new ar rangement will work, and may later decide to run the hotel under a dif ferent plan and re-open the dinning room. Dan Nostrosa of the Empire saloon will continue doing business at the old stand under the new arrange ment, but expects to add some new attractions in the way of entertain ment and a line of Summer goods that will please his patrons. Ben Repetto of the “Old Corner” saloon has fully decided to close up his place of business next Monday and keep it closed until Spring. He then plans to renovate the place and open a first class restaurant, bakery, ice cream and confectionery business. F. J.

STRANGER DIES AT JOHN LAXAGUE RANCH Austin Reveille: On the afternoon of Sunday, the 24th of November, a man came to the ranch of John Lax ague in Monitor Valley, exhausted and hungry, he having started from the Morrison ranch, 35 miles east of there, three days before and became lost in the storm. He spent three days and two nights in the mountains, blinded by the snow without food or shelter, and ar rived at the Laxrgue place in a most forlorn condition. He was taken in and cared for, but in a day or so be came ill, presumably with pneumonia, caused by the exposure. An attempt ; was made to gel medical attendance, but the deep snow pi evented it, and last Friday he died. He had given no name to the peo ple at the ranch, and there was not a scrap of paper or anything by which his identity could be ascer tained. The deceased told the people at the ranch that he had been working at Cherry Creek, in White Pine County. In his possession when he arrived at the ranch were a Colt 32 caliber auto matic pistol, a penknife, and $32.50 in cash. It is said that he has a wife and two children, a boy and a girl, in Reno, but there is no way of as certaining who they are, nor where. He told the people at the Laxague place that he was 48 years of age.
