‘ OUR MffiKRS WU KEEP MO RECORD As a result of the farm bureau meet ing held at Wellington Friday night, si* Smith Valley dairymen will keep herd records for one year, that they may determine the income derived from the sale of alfalfa hay and pas ture for way via the dairy cows. Prof. V. E. Scott, State draiy spe cialist, gave an interesting talk at this meeting on cow testing work as car ried ort in Washoe county for the past year. Alfred Peckham, of the Model Dairy in Reno followed up Prof. Scott's talk, telling how lie had doubled the production of his herd of " 150 cows in the past four years. Mr. Peckham has accomplished this re sult by selection of the best cows, by the use of purebred sires and feeding grain and silage in additiou to alfalfa hay and by milking three times a day. By milking three times a day Mr. Peckham has bceiy able to dispose of the help of two milkers. Following pr the meeting six farmers agreed fo keep herd records for one year. Prof. Scott will return to the valley the first week of July to assist these farmers in starting these tests. TO WORK TAILINGS ON CARSON RIVER J. W. Wenzel, of Virginia City in company with others, has obtained an option on the reduction plant situated about four miles below Dayton on the Carson river, and it is claimed that he has obtained possession of the Doug lass tailings at the same place. He has now a force of men at work putting things in shape at the plant, to make proper tests to ascertain if he will be justified in closing the deal. The company that owns the plant was declared bankrupt by the district court of Utah nearly two years ago, and the option was granted by the re ceiver appointed by the court to wind up the affairs of the company. _ 'I QUICK WORK O.

Up to the seventh inning there was nothing to it but Fallon, that team having scored five runs—two in the first, two in the third antf one in the seventh, while Yerington was handed six straight goose eggs. In the seventh, however, Yerington woke up and scored six runs,' knocking the Fallon pitcher off his perch.

In the ninth Fallon added two more to its score, while Yerington got another blank, making the total score: Fallon Ycringtoin 8.

In Mineral County there has also been activity, but because the find there is some miles front the railroad the activity lias not been so pro nounced as at Wabuska, where the coal land is close to the railroad. A majority of the applications for patents have been received from San Francisco people, according to Mrs. Bray. A DROVE OF ’EM E. E.

McCormick, vice-prcsidertt the Southern Pacific Company, spei*V two days last week looking over the agricultural and stock conditions Hfcj Mason and Smith valleys. In company with Thomas Buckman, County Agent, Senator Penrose. J. t Wilson and Clark J* Guild he visited' many ranches and listened attentively to our plans for irrigation and drhiil‘, age. Thursday evening Mr. McCorrttick was the guest of Ycrington business men at a dinner at the Brooks Hotel, lie said he had neves seen a territory with a more promising future tllftn here in Lyon county. He advised that: we pay more attention to hogs and cit tic—why sell your alfalfa for $4 or $5 a ton in the stack when you could get $50 a ton If you put it into cattle and hogs? Mr. McCormick’s ‘talk was interest* ing and instructive, but its practicabil ity is doubtful. Short talks were made by Clark )■ Guild, Thomas Buckman and J. t. Wilson. The latter told Mr. McCor mick what we needed here was reason able freight rates on*thc railroad and the absorption of the Copper Belt by the Southern Pacific, and right there Mr. Wilson hit the nail on the head. With a decent freight rate, not only would farmers' get a reasonable profit on their products, but. with a decent freight rate the Thompson smelter would be justified in starting up, which would start all the copper mines ilt this country going, and which in turn woultt give employment to about 2,000 men and give our farmers that many more mouths to feed with their beef, butter, eggs, poultry and spuds. And thatrs the kind of talk to which Mr. McCormick and other emissaries of big transportation interests turn a deaf car. WHO'LL IE MSflff FIR HOME TEW?

THE LABY KISSED US AND NOW WE’RE MAD Well, the circus came, paraded, ex cited all the younger and a large part of the older folks, gave a fairly goon entertainment and left with a big pile of Lyon county money. The most talked-of feature of the show was the “kissing lady." This stylishly dressed lady stood just inside the main entrance and when a man entered she walked up behind him. put her arms around him. and before he realized whatsmatlcr. kisscil bin Some of the men blushed, some smiled bewitchingty. some pretended to be indignant. Judge Blanchard re ceived the osculatOry greeting with be coming judicial dignity, while Bob Dyer responded tu the laly's caress by grabbing her around the waist and giving her oh, such a squeeze! And then, awful to relate, the “lady’’ turned out to be a very scrubby look ing man. J. I.
