D., Bishop-elect of Ne vada, was born in Lowell, Mass., March 15, 1860, the son of Alex ander Douglas and Clara (Boats) Robinson. Coming with his par ents in childhood to Racine, NVis., hp took an arts course at Racine College, graduating with the de gree of B. A. in 1884 and in 1887 taking that of M. A. He also took later a poet-graduate coarse nt the University of Chicago. For a year after graduation he wns assistant rector of the Grammar School of llaciue College. He then became instructor of mathematics at the Military Academy at Han Mateo, Cal., and it was while there that, in 1886, he was ordained deacon by Bishop Kip of California, and in 1888 priest, by Bishop Wing held of Northern California. In 1889 he became headmaster of the same academy, and was also as sistant at the parish church, St. Matthew’s. A ) ,r later he was called to take the (wet of warden at Racine College Grammar School. In the interim since he had left there, the work of the eu tire institution had been suspend ed and it locked as though the groat work over which James De Koven had for so many years pre sided had come to a close. Bishop Nicholson, who had in 1891 enter ed upon the episcopate of Milwau kee, had, however, taken steps for the re-opening of the grammar school, aud on a small scale it had been re-opened with the rector of St. Luke's, Racine, the Rev. Ar thur Pi|*er, D. I)., at the head of it. In 1900 Mr. llobinBon was in vited to become warden of the in stitution, and although it seemed almost hopeless to expect any suc cess he accepted the post, and in the seven years since that time he has given his whole energy to the work of building up the Grammar School, in which he has been mar vellously successful, so that to-day it is more prosperous and has a greahw attendance than it ever had in its palmiest days in the past. Dr. Robinson is also at the pres ent time president of the Standing Committee of the diocese of Mil waukee and a member of the Ca thedral chapter, and a deputy to General Convention, at which he was in attendance at the time of his nomination by the House of Bisliops.—The Young Cburch raun. __ “TRIPLETS —SEX TETTE” One day the wives of two mu sicians met on the street. One wns pushing a baby carriage con taining three girl babies (triplets). The other, just over her honey moon, congratulated her upon such bliss. Upon which, the proud mother said that she attributed it to the fact that after returning from their honeymoon the town bind sereiiH<W. them, playing, “Three Little Maids From School” (from the Mikado). The young bride held up her hands in holy horror and exclaimed, “My God!!' Hint same band serenaded us, and played 'The Sextette’ ” (from Lucia). ___________ LIKOKKINO COLD. “Last winter 1 caught a very severe cold which lingered for week*," nays J U quhart, of Zephyr, Ontario. My cough wai very dry and harah. The lo cal dealer recommended Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and guananteed it, eo I gave it a trial. One email bottle of it cured roe. I believe Chamberlain's Cough Remedy to be the beet I have ever used." This remedy la for sale by A D Lomaire A 8ooa. RENEWED INTEREST. SEVERAL RICH STRIKES REAWAKEN INTEREST IN BATTLE MOUNTAIN SECTION--OLD PRODUCERS IN VICINITY. J. M. Pine of Denver, manager of the Antimony King Mining Compauy of Austin, Nov., who spent much of the past Summer in the Buttle Mountain district of Nevada, while discussing that sec tion, had the following to say, says the The Colorado Daily Mining Record: “With the recent rich strike made at Gold Circle, just north of Battle Mountain, Nev., the discov ery of a rich vein of gold ore on Willow Creek, ruar the old Cop per Canyon mint, ;he opening of a four-foot vein of $300 ore on Trout Creek, just north of Battlo Moun tain in the Battle Mountain range, the newly opened property of the Golden Era in the Alder Creek district under the management of C. H. Snow, who is shipping in car lots $200 gold ore, and tho Pe dro group, which has recently passed into the handB of Eastern [teople and which shows a 15-foot ledge of $25 free-milling gold ore, and on which a large reduction plant is to be installed, it would seem that the mining interests were surely centering in this lo cality. It should be remembered, bo ever, that Battle Mountain is surrounded by many old devel oped properties which wore exten sively worked and were large pro ducers 35 years ago. The famous , Copper Canyon mine produced several hundred thousand dollars' worth of high-grade ore early iu the ’80s, most of which was shipped to Swausea, and during this period the great silver-lead mines of Ga lena and Lewis were also worked extensively and produced millions. Most of the ore from these proper ties was treated on the ground and the bullion shipped direct to the refineries. The reduction in the price of silver, however, caused these properties to close and noth ing of importance has been done until recently, when capital lias become interested, placing many of these old rniues iu shape for exten sive development. ' Ihe numerous ncii strikes in tbe Buttle Mountain district will doubtless be the cause of much in terest among wiuiug men. The conditions for prospecting are very favornble. There is generally an abundance of good water at all seasons of the year and thero is plenty of timber for the mines and for domestic uses throughout this region, while provisions and feed are readily obtained Ht tbe numer ous ranches along the skirt of the mountaiu ranges. “The ores are generally shipped to either the smelters at Salt Lake or Ogden, or to the Selby smelter et San Francisco, the rates averag ing from |3.f>0 to $0 a ton, accord ing to the value. “I spent tbe greater part of the last year in and arouud Battle Mountain, having made a careful study of the geological conditisns between the fifth and seventh standard parallels north, along the northerly boundaries of Lauder, Eureka and the eastern portion of Humboldt counties, and I feel sur.? that conditions for opening large properties in this distriot are ns favorable as that of any oamp in tbe State. "Mauy of tbe mountains are capped by a heavy How of vesicu lar basalt, which rests uncomfort ably on tuffs or highly crystallized rocks forming the main bulk of tbe mountain. The mines are lo cated in tbe lower formations along well-defined fault planeB and have cl aracteristic features of true veins varying in width from a few inches to several feet, a id often continuing for a mile or more in length. The primary vein filling generally consists of a qunrtz feld spar gangue, and when in pay the silver ledges cnrry chloride and as depth is gained verge into sul phides in the form of argentite, polybasite, stephanite and silver selenite. ‘The gold veins below the zone of oxidation, which is ir regular, is found in pyrite, chalco pyrite and bornite, while in other veins the values are confined to ga lena and zinc blende. The veins carry well-defined ore shoots, which crop on or near the surface, and these Bhoots or pay zones are determined by a series of intru sive rhyolite or porphyry dykes, which define cross walls in the vein that either tended to obstruct the enriched mineral flow along the course of the vein or acted the part oft a precipitating agent. These ore shoots in old workings have proven to be of good size and to continue to groat depths. “There aro excellent wagon ronds from nil the surrounding mines to the railroad station at Battle Mountain.’’ THANKSGIVING PROCLAMATION The time iB neHr at hand when, according to the custom of our people, a day should be set apart and devoted to thanksgiving, prayer and praise to Almighty God for the many blessings be stowed upon us during the year fast drnwiug to a close; Now, therefore, I, John Sparks, Governor of the State of Nevada, do hereby designate and declare Thursday, the 28th day of Novem ber, A. D. 1907, Thanksgiving day. To the Supreme ltuler of the Universe, during tho year, wo have everything to be thankful for. He has given us sunshine and showers and natural conditions for the pro duction of bountiful crops from an inexhaustible soil. Ho has given us pure air to breathe, productive of health and happiness. Neither pestilence nor calamities have come through His dispensation. For which all should be humbly grateful. The people of this State, ns iu the case of tnnny others, are finan cially distressed, but this is not at tributable to God. The avaricious tendency of man is res|xmsible for the misery and distress now prevailing. It is, however, to be hoped that the cloud will soou be dispersed and business resume normal conditions, conservative and safe for tho beuetit of all classes. On Thanksgiving day, as you meet in family and friendly re union, remember the poor and needy with gifts of comfort and joy.

For years I was troubled with bilious Dees and constipation, which made life miserable for me. My appetite failed me. I lost my usual force and vitality. | Pepsin preparations and cathartics only i made matters worse. 1 do not know | where I should have been today bad I i not tried Chamberlain’s Stomach and Liver Tablets. The tablets relieve the ill foeling at once, strengthen the di geative functions, helping the aystem tc do its work naturaliv.—Mbs. Rosa Potts Birmingham, Ala. Those tablets art for sale by A D Leinaire A Sous. niscellaneous Jottings. A Few Short Items of Interest Around the State. Goldfield miners are to be paid in clearing house notes. Steel tanks formerly in the Reno jail have been sold to Lyon county and Bent to Yeriugton. The Bonanza says rents of busi ness houses and dwellings in Ton opah are 30 per cent too high. Mountain lions have lately kill ed several sheep near Palisade, and chased a woodchopper out of his camp. Despite protests Congressman Bartlett announces he will press a bill to remit annual assessment work on mining claims in 1908 at the coming session.
