CARSON CITY DAILY 'APPEAL," TUESDAY, JANUARY 17,-1922'
' NEVADA RAILROAD MAN THROWS AWAY COPPERS John F.. Sexton, who general man ages the Eureka-Nevada Railway, di vides his time between the Palace in San Francisco and the general offices of his railroad at Palisade. Just at present he is carrying on his business from the Palace, the San Francisco Chronicle says. Yesterday Sexton was leaning against the desk talking with Eddie Roberts, assistant manager" of the Palace. He thrust a hand down into his trousers pockets and brought up a handful 'of pennies. Carefully balanc ing each coin on his thumb nail, he flipped them across the lobby. "Hey, what's the idea?" asked Ed die. "Well, it just like this. We used to have a governor of Nevada, by the name of Sadler. Sadler mad a remark one time which has stuck by me. 'I hope that no citizen of Nevada,' he said, 'will ever be so cheap as to be found dead with a copper coin in his pocket.' N "I can't give them away. I don't want to insult anybody by offering them as tips, so I just toss them away, and Sexton, with accurate aim, made a bullscye on the brass cuspidor against the wall with the final penny. OUTLOOK IS FAVORABLE FOR LIVESTOCK RAISERS SCHOOL BENEFIT PLAY PLEASED LARGE CROWD With the Grand theatre packed to capacity last evening, "Blundering Billy" was presented with all the promised ability and thoroughness to an appreciative audience. Long be fore the rise of the curtain the reserved section was sold out and many who de ferred securing these seats were com pelled to second best. However, they were fully repaid by the excellent presentation by the cast of characters under the direction of James Atkins, each displaying extraordinary skill in his or her particular part3. A distinctive feature of the evening's entertainment was the high school or chestra, under the. direction of Prof. Hoffman, and the many splendid ren ditions before the opening curtain and throughout the play merited the gen erous applause accorded them. A clever dancing specialty by Miss Ruth Lindsay and two catchy songs by Miss Corine Slingerland between acts were well received and the respective artists performed in a manner which fortclls greater accomplishments by them. Manager Blackwell of the Grand theatre has stated the attendance was 550, which, from a financial standpoint speaks for itself, and assures the bene fit for Carson's schools a very substan tial increase. J. Sheehan, president of the Farm ers and Merchants National Bank of Eureka, was in Eureka last week to attend the annual stockholders meet ing. Mr. Sheehan is quite optimistic regarding the future general business outlook, and especially that of the live stock industry. He estimates that the average cow on the range, suitable for breeding, is now worth $45 or $50. Ow ing to the fact that tho winter is so far advanced, he feels that $50 would be a more nearly accurate estimate, the Eureka Sentinel reports. Advanced prices are experienced by sheepmen also, according to Mr. Shee han. Sheep have advanced $3 and $4 per head, and now a good range ewe is worth $10. Mr. Sheehan says that wool Luyers in the western part of the state are now contracting for the next wool clip at twenty cents per pound for all year grown wool, and he hopes to see this price increased. The outlook in the sheep business is excellent, owing to the facts that there has been bounti ful snow, the weather has been fine. there has been an abundance of mois ture and the sheep are fat, all of which contributes toward making long, clean wool. The storms in California and else where have made a brisk demand for sheep to feed; there is no drought, and money is becoming easier and the growers are finding themselves in a position to finance themselves. Shee han predicts that the industry will be back to the normal stage by fall, al though he expects it will be dull till shearing time, which usually starts about the middle of March or in April, depending upon the weather. WOMEN'S AUXILIARY UNIT OF LEGION TO INSTALL One of the most hilarious times to be staged by the Women's Auxiliary of Capitol Post of the American Legion is anticipated tonight when the auxil iary will meet at Lesiure Hour hall for installation of officers and following a business meeting refreshments will be served. Mrs. Josic Millard, present presi dent, and Miss Frances Amodei, sec retary, will be installing officers when the following new officers take up their posts r Mrs. B. Cole, president; Mrs. El spat Ligon, vice-president; Mrs. Maude Kelly, treasurer; Mrs. Florence Tuck er, secretary; Mrs. Drue Carothers, chaplain. 36 BELOW ON TOP OF RUBY MOUNTAINS Pilot Levisce, flying the Salt Lake City to Elko air mail run, brought some interesting information to Elko recently, says the Independent. The pilot carried a thermometer on his last trip and noted the temperature at the point where he flew over the highest peak of the Ruby mountains. The temperature recorded at that point was thirty-six degrees below zero at about eleven o'clock in the morning. SECOND CAR BETTS ORE IS VALUED AT $25,000 The second shipment of high grade fro mthe Betts lease at Touopah has been made ready to send to the smel ter, according to the Times. The car goes to the United States Smelting and Refining Company in Utah and will be accompanied by George Box and C. Y. Toy. The estimated value of the shipment is approximately $25,000, which ' represents the richest carload sent from Tonopah. A second carload will be loaded with as little delay as possible and by that time it is believed that the lessees will; have "a third car ready unless there should be some change in the physical condition of the property which does not appear likely at this time, as the vein is growing in size and value with depth. BARONI'S DAYTON RANCH VISITED BY BLAZE TWO MAIL SACKS STOLEN FROM YERINGTON STATION NOTICE The second regular monthly meet ing of this unit will be held this even ing at 7:30 p.m. at Lesiure Hour hall.

Gaining entrance to the baggage room of the Yerington station, a rob ber, on Thursday morning about four o'clock, got away with one lock pouch and a parcels post sack, this mail ar riving on the evening's train. Nothing of any great value was missed, says the Mason Valley News. It seems that Station Agent J. A. Mayes was awakened around four o"clock on the morning of the rob bery by a disturbance in the baggage room of the depot. Upon arising to investigate the source of the noise, Mr. Mayes saw a man run past the window. The Iman continued his flight until across a small ravine directly south of the building when Mr. Mayes fired at him.
