No California, Utah, Oregon hay or
cattle f'vr • a".v ' t! r gate wjll be
fed in Nev. ia lids year, uccordng to
order- made recently by tile food ud
ministratioi The ruling was made
because of the fact that surveys of
the state hay crop indicate that there
will not be any more than enough
hay to feed Nevada cattle this year,
but in ease :{ develops later t at the
hay crop is large enough the ordc
may be modified.
The same ruling applies in Cali
fornia where the hay erop b very
short and it will not be possible tor
Nevada cattle owners to take cattle
to California to feed them. Provis
ions are being msdt, however, by the
food administration to arrange with
Kansas and other middle western
status to ship Nevada cattle into those
state- for feeding if the hay crop in
this state is not sufficient -nd indica
tions are now tuat a large number
of cattle will have t<> be shipped.
The new regulations issued by the
food administartion will not 'be opera
tive in Nevada, California and Ari
zona according to a ruling received
from the federal administration. Un
der the new rulings meat can be serv
ed for one meal a day only, but be
cause of tiie shortage of feed in the
tnree states tile food administration
decided that it would be better to eat
the meat than to allow the cattle to
It will not be possible for hay in
Nevada to soar to prices recorded
last year when the allied govern
ments were buying hay and paying
the high prices for it. Under ar
rangments just completed with the
allied governments the food adminis
tration in Nevada an,f in all the west
ern states will do the purchasing of
all products from the different • tates
fir the United St; tes as well as for
thi allies, and s;.,t. me expendit

tine prices.
I t.e fod administration will dio
nil the buying for lh allies in this
state I'-t.m now on ..aid H. A. Lem
mon. "ami it i>>>t only intentls to keep
the prices at some .-onahls- i>oiut.
In.I it also intends to keep the pro
ducts til tins state that art needed
lure front going out of t state.
For instance, last year England and
France md oWter \<tlu‘d /countries
net .led t.ay They went into Cali
fornia and kept raising the price of
hay to -uch an extent that thousands
of tons of hay were shipped out of
California when that hay was needed
at home to feed the dairy cattle and
thousands of cattle starved anti many
dairies were put out of business and
milk and butter prices soared. The
same was true in Nevada to a cer
tain extent.
“This is what the food administra
tion intends to prevent. Renchers
who have hay for sale will be assured
of a iair price for tlveir product. They
will lie paid the maximum market
price and it will not he possible for
any big cattle men or hay buyers to
keep the pride of hay down below
legitimate figure.
“ I mention hay especially because
that was the commodity that was
mostly affected last year. The same
will be true of othet huts, how
ever.” — Free pness.

Effective Immediately.
All users of ftigar, including fam
ilies, restaurants, hotels, "bakers, sa
loons, retailers and wholesalers are
notified that the new rules are in ef
fect. absolutely controlling the pur
chase, ^ale and distribution of all cane
and beet sugar products.
Families will be limited strictly to
three pounds per person or ninety
meals served per month. Twenty
live pounds at one time may l>e pur
chased for canning and preserving,
but sugar so bought must be rigidly
conserved and used for strictly can
ning purposes. All retail sales of
sugar to families for any purpose
whatever will be noted on Monthly
Sales Reports furnished to Nevada
grocers under sanction of the Fed
eral Food Administrator of Nevada.
Commercial users of rugar for raan
nlaciur’iig purposes are divided into
five classes, known as manufacturers
under “Statements A, 15, C, D and I£”.
All of these users, in buying sugar
must conform to regulation- by first
procuring from their County hood
Administrator Sugar Certificates
in amount determined by their sign
ed st..*emcnts of needs. I hese sugar
Certificates, once used, need not he
returned at once to the hood Admin
istration as in the past: they may be
re-used by the retailer in buying from
i the wholesaler, hy tint- (wholesaler
I from the refiner, the jretindr then
sending them in tor cancellation,
i Thus, the new certificates become 11c
| gotiable paper' used in obtaining sug
! ar supplies.
Statement A includes saloons, soft
drink manufacturers, candy, syrups,
etc. These users are limited to 50
per cent of the sugar used by them
I last year,
I Statement R includes essential
manufacturers, under which manu
! facturers of ice-cream and other per
ishable commodities arc listed.
These arc allowed 75 per cent of
last year’s requirements-.
Statement C applies to hotels, res
taurants, clubs, dining cars, boarding
houses, hospitals, putdic institutions,
and the sugar ir issued to them on a
basis of meals served during July,
August and September, of 1917, or
during June, 1918, at the option of
the person making the statement.
Statement D includes bakers and
cracker manufacturers.
Statement li includes all retail
stores selling direct to consumers.
Every manufacturer in Nevada un
der Statements A, B, C, D and E must
tile his statement with the Federal
Food Administrator, or with the Coun
ty Administrator of his county, on or
, before July 25, 1918; otherwise he
'will be allowed no sugar whatever for
the remaining months of this year.
It is said that necessity is the moth
er of invention, and a shortage of la
bor has brought about many new
methods of handling hay crops in
Carson Valley. The mechanical hay
loader is finding general use in this
Valley, and farmers who in former
years would not consider its use are
now using this method. The side
delivery rake has come into general
use, and the much despised “foot
burner”, or revolving rake, as well
as the Butner rake, is doing the work
^of many men. Hay that was formerly
bunched by hand is now 'being shock
ed with rakes, and one man can do as
much work in a day as twelve or fif
teen did by the old method. It is
claimed that the rakes do a- good
work, especially in the hands of an
experienced operator, and means the
conserving of much labor. Also it
lessens the cost of putting up the hay,
which fact appeals to the farmer in
'this day and age when the high wage
scale and shortage of men is consider
ed*.—Record Courier.

(on Valley are crossing the great di
[ vide. We chronicle today the death of
Gilbert Benjamin Waldo who pased
from this life July 8, 1918, at 5:20
| a.m. Mr. Waldo had lived in Mason
Valley since 1867, coming west from
Chicago; 111. where he was born on
June 10, 1842.
He had a most peculiar experience
during the Civil Wer, being one of
the few men who fought on both
sides in the great conflict. It hap
pened in this way; when war broke
out in '61 young Gil was in Arkan
sas cutting timber, lie was prompt
ly drafted into the Confederate forces
I and fought with them agairnt his
convictions until the battle of Shiloh,
1 where he and another boy concealed
j themselves in a swamp until they
were picked up by the l’nion farces.
They worked their way north, finally
reaching Madison, Wis. where Mr.
Waldo enlisted in the Union army,
and was mustered out on June 15,
Mr. Waldo was married to Mrs.
Sarepta Ames September 15, 1879,
who has shared hi- joys and sorrows
and is now left alone to mourn his
loss. There are no other near rela
tives of the deceased.
During his residence of fifty-one
years in Mason Valley no man was
held in higher esteem than Mr. Wal
do. was a noble man, a pioneer,
a tiller of the -oil that the desert
mi'Jht bloom, a soldier and one de
voted t the cause of fraternity. He
numbered among his friends the en
tire community. In 1913 he was elect
ed -Mayor of Yerington but resigned
before his term expired, lie was a
charter member of Mason Valley
Lodge No. 34. l.O.O.F„ of Queen of
the Valley Re'bekah Lodge, and a
social member of the Yerington Ae
rie, No. 1696, F.O.E.
Tile funeral services were held
Thursday afternoon from the Lodge
Hall under the auspices of the Odd
Fellows. The ritual was read by the
officers *)f the day and Dr. Dixon
preached a very able sermon, eulo
gising the man who in his youth had
given his services to save his coun
try in that other crisis of its history.
The Grand Army of the Republic
holds its place in the heart- of this
people and we lay them to rest gent
ly and reverently, remembering the
debt we never can pay. At the grave
a military salute was tired by a squad
of soldiers, ^consisting of Beaman,
Springer, Northern, Riley, Barr. Dol
• ben. Snyder, Warren and Henderson,
and the final taps were sounded by
E. H. WHitacre.
On the quiet hillside the grave was
covered with the beautiful floral trib
utes sent by devoted friends while
the choir rendered the final number.

There were five full squads out
