The Rome incident was several sizes larger than the Cairo incident. Perhaps Berlin begins to feel a little anxious. The people of the district have put much money into stocks at low ebb during the last few months. This money will come back several times OTer before the year is out. And it will bring an abundance of prosper ity The oil fever is spreading OTer the country with wonderful rapidity. Be hind it is said to be Standard, pav ing: the way for the new flotation which it is going to make among the peope upon reorganization of the present unwieldly concern. The local situation contains a great deal that is of large promise, with nothing warranting pessimism. Present mining, milling and smelting operations are the greatest ever had in the state. As fas: as money and brains can drive the work, the way is being opened for deep mining and a vastly increased payroll at mines and reduction works. There is every thing here to encourage and nothing to discourage. Dr. Eugene Doyen explained at the International Congress of Physio thrapy in Paris last week his treat ment of cancer by means of electri cally produced heat. The secret of the discovery is that the cancerous ceils are destroyed by a tempralure of from 50 to 55 degrees centigrade, which is entirely harmless to healthy cells. The method shows wonder ful results, he says, in eliminating the need of the kn'.fe in all Itsio-is which are accessiVe to an elec tic at current, artificially applied. The healing of the tissues follows im mediately upon *he coagvlation of the cancerous cells. Press reports indicate the New York upheaval to have been more of a rebellion against rotten, grafting local organisation thin against "reg ular ' Republicanism. Nevertheless there is a note of warning contained. The people want more tariff reform, and they are right. Tart and the great majority of the Republicans take the same view, but hold that reforms cannot be made to full ex tent at a single sitting. Medicines are good, but overdose* kill. A steady course of treatment is what Taft aims at. from the hands of a tariff commission, and Republicans agree with him. During the session of the Ameri can Oriental Society in Baltimore last week Prof. G. A. Burton of Bryn Mawr questioned the correct ness of the much discussed discovery of Prof. Hilprecht of the University of Pennsylvania of a tablet from the famous "temple library" of Nippur containing a portion of the Ba bylon deluge story. Hilprecht called It the oldest known reference to the flood in writing, the tablet being at least 1000 years older than the Bible narrative. He gave out a translation of it, which carton says is largely imaginary. The tablet is of unbaked clay, measuring 2 \ by 2H inches and nearly an inch thick. But a part has been broken away. It bears no date, but internal evidence places it beyond 2005 B. C. The In scription is understood to be a divine • commanded to the North of Babylon to butld a ship and save life from an all-destroying flood. This Nippur version differs from the two found, at Nineveh and agrees with the Bible story, according to Hilprecht. Dr. William H. Ward, while deprec ating the animus against Hilprecht. thought that the tablet dated from a later period and that it was largely ^ imagination to call it an account of, the flood. APHORISMS OF A GAMBLER. Not very long ago there died in New York Patrick Francis Sheedy. one of the world's most famous gamblers. It was more than his phenomenal daring and luck, how ever, that made Sheedy’s reputation. He was famous as a philosopher, as a defender of the outcast, as a friend of the frendless. Some ten years be fore his death, he quit gambling al together—minus the fortunes that had passed from time to time through his hands—and earned his living as an art-dealer. Here are only a few of the aphorisms that fell from his lips in later days—the ripe fruit of a long experience. "I'm not afraid to die. I know I'm going to get a square deal. The Maker plays no favorites. ■*We are not ail pacers or trotters. We have our own gait, and we go that gait; and that gait is Fate. "Even fat is Fate. I've never eaten more than a bird, and yet I'm dying of fat. "What is the great speculator in wheat but a gambler like myself? Only the law protects him and ostracizes me. "I've got my life insured for the benefit of my wffe: the company J'm insured in bets I won't die this year. That's the toughest game I ever struck, for I have to die to beat it.1 “So long as 1 can make a living and give a ton of coal now and then of. a hard winter to my mother-in law, and eon my wife into believing that she might have gone farther and fared worse. I'm satisfied to rest easy and not go around hunting for a controversy. Any fool can get into an argument, but it's a wise man that steer dear of it. “Put this down—the gambler has a harder time of it than any other business man. Once in a while he gets what slow-going folks might call a great deal of money, but It never lasts long. More often he is obliged to borrow his living expenses from his friends, and Pat Sheedy is no exception. “Englishmen win pay their gamb-| ling debts before they will their tailor. The Germans—particularly German army officers—are about as good. I wish I could say as much for my own countrymen. “I've been through the college of experience, and learned never to turn a deaf ear to a man whose luck is down. That's what most people never learn.” MINES AND MINING! 1 FOUR FEET OF RICH ORE IN NEVADA UNITED TUNNEL-FAMOUSi ORE BODYTHOUGHT AGAIN FOUND ____._ Reports of an extremely encourag ing nature have been coming In dur ing the past few days from the Ne vada United at Ward. Strikes of an important nature have been made very recently which lead strongly to the belief that the company has | struck the famous old ore body, from which approximately $15,000,000 : worth of ore was extracted during the prime days of me mine and from which dividends amounting to nine million dollars were paid. The late strike is of such stcent [occurrence that its importance can not be definitely figured, but average assays are said to have shown as tounding values in lead and silver, the latter making as high as 11.000 ounces. The company is working eighteen men at the present time and is pushing its development vigorous ly. The latest strike has created widespread enthusiasm and. if it makes good, will bring return of old time prosperity to Ward district. In cidentally it will make certain the building of the branch railroad to .connection with the Nevada Northern . at East Ely at early date. The present strike is in the tunnel which has lately been driving. There i is reported to be better than four feet of the rich ore to the present , time, with no end in sight. The be lief is that they have caught the 1 famous old ore body body, lost some years ago. NATION II. I XPKCTS PROSPI IUTV Iutigation is ( lisei amt the Out look Greatly Brightened. It is promised that development work in the camp of National. Net., will be undertaken with greatly in creased energy now that the suit of the National Mining company against the Stall Brother has been dismissed, the principals having effected a com promise out of court. The purpose of the suit was to cancel a lease held by Stall Brothers i , on some National claims, and the litigation has tied up for over a year the production from the richest por-1 tion of the National holdings. By the terms of settlement, however. Stall Brother are given an additional year on their lease, and tlupugh *p erations will be carried on unoer somewhat closer restriction than heretofore, it is promised that in the near future the production of the property will be up to former ti| ures.

At any rate, much in-; terest is taken in the district, and' from all indications the coming summer will be prosperous for the i operators there. The mountain range in which the ; camp of National is situated is a i treasure zone for a distance of at \ least fifty miles in length and many miles in width. From the lower end of Paradise Valley on the south this great mineral belt extends to the Oregon line on the north. Over this great area it has been demonstrated that mineral wealth abounds from one end of the belt to the other. The past great output of the Paradise mines is one of the best evidences of the existence of large bodies of pay ing ore in this mineral belt. The New Gold field district, which occupies the central portion of the belt, long ago proved the valuable deposits of gold, silver, lead and cotv per ore of that section. On the north ern end of the range near the Oregon line and about six miles north of the town of National and in the same porphyry belt in which occur the ledges at the bonanza camp, is re ported a strike of ore that assays (10 to the pound, with values most ly in gold. The latest news from the district is of an important strike at what is known as Castle Dome, near the An dorno stantion, about forty miles from IVinnemucra and in the same range of mountains as National The ore from Castle Dome shows values in big ledges as high as 187.20 to the ton in gold, together with good sil ver values. A number of prospectors have located e'aims and ore that car ries paying values is being disclosed in a number of places in this new territory. HAMILTON TRAIL GALL TOR HELP _ i Sheriff A1 Butler and Attorney Walker, who went to Hamilton sev eral days ago, have sounded a dis- I tress call. Butler’s auto is bucking, and has been for a couple days, with ! result that they want to see a rescue ‘ party. They telegraphed from Hamilton Monday and Lee Arris started to them Tuesday on a motorcycle. Near Ilipah the motor quit and Arris re turned to Ely. Yesterday he started in an automobile, making good time to Ilipah, but between that place and Hamilton hts car quit, according to report received last night. Mean while Butier and Walker are Just waiting. Unless they arrive today a span of mules will be sent out to haul all hands home. WIHtMA (.CASK I.iM>KS GOOD. The drift started last week on the Wilbuja vein on the fifth level has opened up an ore body the like of which has never before been en countered on the bonanza property. | The shoot is two feet In width and j the values are so high as to seetn almost incredible. The drift U now in a considerable distance and with no diminution in size or character i of the ore body. The east drift on i the 300 level of the Kindergarten property of the Coalition, which Is be ing extended to prospect the com pany's ground, has cut a blind lead carrying good values. The Z. C. M I. lease is running two upraises from [the bottom level of the Kindergarten workings and one from the »»>-foot ! level and all good ore. Already a con : siderabte amount of ore has been ex | rracted and the initinl shipment from the lease to the Coalition mill will be | made about the 30th.—Seven ! Troughs Miner MINK Bl'KEAU BILL. Sidney Norman, the editor of the Los Angeles Mining Review, who has I been In Washington for the past few weeks in company with E. A. Mont- I gomery. president of the Sierra j Madre club of Los Angeles in con i nection with the pushing of the mine [ bureau bill through congress, was a visitor in New York this week. Mr. Norman states that the matter has met with the almost unanimous ap proval of the house of representa tives. and it is only a question of get ting the senate at the present time to vote in its favor to have the bill be come a law The bill, as Is well known, will interest at least 1.5men who are identified with both the precious and non-precious metal mining in dustry of the United S'ates. Among other things, it calls for the organiza tion of a mining bureau to operate under the department of the interior It is intended to take up the work of helping the mining industry of the United State* from that point where the geological survey's efforts cease In addition the bill has adopted very stringent regulations in regard to the protection of life and limb which are to be given the miner—New York « Mining Age.
