BRIEF NEWS OF THE STATE
FROM LOCAL EXCHANGES SO FAR during the last summer and this fall 128,000 acres of land have been located under the Pittman act In a locality eighten or twenty mile* northeast of Jungo. according to a statement made by Harry H. Corkln. who is engaged in the business of Id eating settlers. Says a Wlnncmucca i xchangc. Fifty-two wealthy Californians are the locators. The land is embraced in a block about fight by twenty-six miles. This Is a section w here the lo cators believe underground wat. r i abundant, the water coming from the uppersections of the Quinn Rivet val ley and from the Jackson mountains ,.n the west side of the Silver State range on the cast Test wells have been sunk to a dis tance uf mm e than 100 feet. II is about twenty-four feet on an average to the fli-tt strata where water is found; be low this is a blanket of clay about thirteen feet thick. Sand and water nre under this. The first water reach is a little bruckish, bul that in the lower strains is better A lift of about thirty feet Is estimated to be tieeosenri for general purposes. 'flie locators are made up of ' xp> n .need farmers, lawyers, doctors and representative people, coming from that section emlirac d between Sacra mento and ~b!co. It is planmd to d , velop the land collectively end firm it on a ccoperativi basis, and after I patents have been obtain. ! to bmi.l the enterprise for v- ral million dol- j lars. Jungo Is the nearest rail way station :it present, but the locators have hopes that the Western Pacific may be in duced to build a line into that section, in Which event they might build a i,e\v town of their own. They point, out the fact that such a road would tap the great and rich Quinn River valley and would thereby corral a!! the railroad business from that s*-e lion, which at present goes mostly l< the Southern Pacific. They say that , Miller & Lux alone ship 1.100 cars of cattle from this section yearly, to *a> nothing of the oth* r large ranching •irms and the many individuals. The Jackson mountain mining territory , would be opened up and many copper I mines would be able to work at a protit , which are now unable to work because <>f lack of transportation. Tills would be one of tiie richest fields in Nevada for a railroad And the California m* n and women w ho have located the land wi!l endeavor to show the West* rn Pacific officials the great possibilities of that section. i*uch a road would | draw shipments from almost the e a - | lire portion of southern Oregon. What at present seems the most feasible way would be to branch off at Pronto and go north, between the Sil ver State range and the Jackson moun tains. to Quinn river crossing, oros.. the Jackson mountains and come back to the main line at Sulphur or Gerlaeh ; by way of the Black Rock desert. The I Sulphur section would not suffer by the building of the branch, as the obi line would undoubtedly be continu'd fn use. T IUNKF.lt OF HIKBOLDT D1F.S IX HOSPITAL AT WI.XXKUI < * ' , After a lingering illness covering seperai months Kdwnrd Choate, one of the pioneers of the King's River valley, passed away at thy hospital in M inn* - mucca, says the Humboldt Ster.

Kdward Choate was well known In the northern part of Humboldt county, where with his brother he was in the mining and livestock business near Disaster Peak. He was one of the sturdy pioneers of the west and came to Nevada in 1872. The Choate broth ers own what is known as the King's River mine.

KIU INUISTHt SHOW* NO SIGNS OP RBC1 PF.RATION •<3. Ft. Kan*. Nevada director of the biological survey, declares that the big fur-buying houses are not sending out frequent lists of prices ns they were a year ago. At that time frenzied buying seemed to have struck the fur Industry, with the result that some of the fur houses paid as high as $25 or even $30 for choice coyote skins. How ever, thl* fancy price on a few was often offset by a low price on the bulk • >f th« shipment. Most of the sklre turned In by the state trappers brought an average of about $10. Some of them were sold through a Minneapolis house A big firm in St. Louis holds annual sales at which much of the fed eral catch is disposed of to good ad vantage. Jimp* FROM MOVING TRAIN HKrKIVKM FATAL INJIKIK* W. C. Rider, a fireman well known in railroad circles, was fatally Injured near FVquop recently when he Jumped .from a rapidly moving passenger train.

Nevada Farm Census Shows Steady Gains In view of the fact that Nevada is on the verge of becoming nn agricultural state, it is interesting to note that al most each week of the preceding ton years has added a new farm to the total number shown in the 1910 census. In 1910 there were 2,089 farms, while 1920 shows 3.161 farms in the state. EHco county leads In the number of farms, laving SIS, while Churchill is second with 198 and Washoe third with 481. Other counties follow: Lyon. 29T; While Pine. 211; Clark, 1C2; Nyc, 152 Lincoln.
