Quicksands, through which it became necessary to sink, have been hardened by injecting hydraulic cement into the bed of sand. This has been successfully accomplished by driving pipes into the quicksand at varying distances of 4 to 8 feet and attaching a pump to each alternate pipe, leaving the remaining pipes open. When pumping began a cir culation was established between all the pipes of the series. When sufficient sand had been removed, a cement grout was pumped in for some time and tne open pipes were capped and the pump ing continued, which forced the grout into the sand. The pipes were drawn a foot or more and the operation repeated. The cement sets, causing the ground to become hard enough to be mined out. Flows of water may also be retarded in ditch work or other excavations in wet materials. This scheme can only be op erated under favorable conditions.

AN ORPHAN DIS COVERS HER MOTHER Goldfield has a romance that is seldom equaled in the chronicles of human in terest stories. The Tonopah Sun aaya: The mother of a litt e girl strays into paths of waywardness and fails to re turn home. The child is brought to be lieve that her mother is dead. Seventeen years pass and the girl, now full grown, finds herself in a mining camp in the fai west, disappointed in love and with a heart yearning for excitement. She attires herself in man's clothing ani goes down to a dance hall to vary the monotony of life with a disguise in a forbidden quarter. There she meets and pays jesting court to a woman and dis covers that the woman is her mother. ! A pathetic scene follows in which the daughter pleads for a mother's 'ove, asking her to marry the man who has led her astray and to give up the life of e the under-world. What an opportunity for a grand finale —a marriage, reunited love of a mother and a daughter, a little home far from the region of red lights and wickedness, peace and happiness. DIED ON THE TRAIN. Raymond Randolph, the two-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Randolph died yesterday morning on the train while being brought to Reno for treat ment.

M OF WOMAN FOUND Remains Discovered on Side of Mount Brougher—Indica tions of Horrible Crime. t-aris or me r.orriDiy mutilated remains of a woman were found by A. A.. Bass Monday afternoon on the west side of Mount Brougher at the foot of the mountain, says the Tonopah Sun. The head and arms of the body were miss ing and have not been found. For some unaccountable reason the officers have kept the find a secret,, although. Mr. Bass at once reported his discovery. So far the officers have not succeeded in finding out the identity of the corpse and the affair is a complete mystery. A rude attempt at burial of the re mains had been made. A shallow de pression had been scooped in the earth and the corpse, minus the head and arms, placed in the depression and cov ered with a few inches of earth. In passing, Mr. Bass, through curiosity, scraped away the shallow covering and the ghastly contents of the hastily dug grave were revealed. . The spot at which the corpse was found is a lonely one, although but a short way outside the city limits. It is off the roads of travsl and in a place not likely to have been visited. The condition of the remains when discov ered indicated that they had been placed where found at a recent date. So far as learned there has been no woman re ported as missing in this city. Several theories have been offered in regard to the finding of the remains, but as yet no facts have been unearthed that would furnish grounds for a plaus b e explanation, or at least if the officers know aught of the affair they are main taining a silence strange and unusual.
