PIOCHE, LINCOLN COUNTY, NEVADA, FRIDAY NOVEMBER 17. 1922 VOLUME 53; NUMBER 6 SCHOOLS OF LINCOlN SILVER MEN SEEK TIFF ON Site "The schools of Ltucolu County rs doiiiK better wore this year than at any time In several years," said Mist Maude Prazier, District Deputy tats superintendent. Miss Frazier jus: copleted a tour of the schools of the entire county, during which she en watered some of the worst roads la this section of the state. Accord lni to Miss Frazier some of the com pli nts that the pupils in some gri des are being crowded too much in their work are not well founded. Tl o grades lu this county are doing tba same work that schools are doing in other counties and must be kept ur to the present standards If the pupils are to receive the proper credits. Miss Frazier mentioned the Ploche B gh School classes as making ex eeptlonnl progress in thoir work. The present organization In the g.niles promises unusually good ork there and the patrons of the City school are much more fortunate t'.ian they realize. The recently or t.mlzed Parent Teachers Association f hould be a benefit to the Rchool by 1 tinging about an effectual spirit of rj-operutton ' between the parents, teachers and pupils. Miss Frazier will spend next week at Panaca and Caliente at the latte 1 lace she will meet State Superln tnndent Hunting and return with him to Las Vegas the latter part of the week..

Wednesday "O'Malley of the Mount ed," Win. Hart and the Fox News. VM. S. HART'S NEWEST PICTURE IS A THRILLER A real detective story with a Ca nadian Northwestern Mounted Police man as the hero, portrayed by Wm. S. Hart, is "O'Mlalley of the Mount ed," his new Paramount's picture which will be shown at the EHceric Movies next week. Mr. Hart wrote the story and Lambert Hillyer dt rected and adapted it for the screen. There is a mystery of real thrill the search for a murderer In the wilds of the western country. Like a bloodhound, Hart follows his man into the hills and becomes one of the bandit crew which is protecting the culprit. By a strange twist of fate, the pursuer learns to love the sister of the man he Is after and the latter saves him from death at the hnnds of the bandits. How the situation is made to end happily will puzzle the spectators to the last. But it does and the Inter est and logical termination afford a picture that will not soon be forgot (teu. In the course of the story Is a real western rodeo, a congress of wild rid ers and broncho busters, wherein some of the best feats of horseman ship Imaginable are shown. Eva 1 Norvak Is the leading woman. A tariff of -twenty-five rents an ounce ou foreign silver will be pro posed at a meeting ot silver produc ers to be held In Salt Lake City early in January, it was announced in Rer.o Tuesday, yaya the Gazette, by one of the best known silver mining men in the West, who for buslenss reasons felt that his name should be withheld. The meeting is now be ing called, he said, and It Is the pur pose to form an association of silver producers in the West at this gath ering and to adopt resolutions which Congress will not be in a position to ignore. With the provisions of the Silver purchase act expiring about one year from now. he explained, some action must be taken to keep the price where It will be profitable to keep the West's silver mines In eperatlon. The proposal to sell the white metal to China, he said was a fallacy, for China has no credit with which to purchase silver. It Is proposed at this meeting, he said, to have ex perts go Into detail on metal In Mex ico, Peru and Canada and to show conclusively that with the price of one dollar an ounce taken off, Amer ican mines cannot produce at a profit. "We have taxed lead and -other ores, why not silver?" he asked. It was explained that the United States now produced about sixty million ounces of silver annually and con sumes lust about that same amount and pointed out that if a tariff Is nlared on foreign silver the mines of the United States will be enabled to continue producing at a reasonable Vestern senators and congressmen are to be asked to attend the confer ence. It Is argued that they can compel the members of the National ongress to recognize the rights of the Western metal producers In view of the fact that the Westerners have supported the claims of the large Eastern manufacturers tor tariffs which protect their products. It is likely, it was explained, that the mat ter of a silver tariff will be placed in the hands of Senator Reed Smoot of Utah, that state being one of the largest silver producers in the coun try, of not the largest. IS OPERATED JIN FOR APPENDICITIS Orill Wanker was brought In from Bristol last Tuesday evening suf fering an attack of acute appendlclti He was taken to Salt Lake City Wed nesday where an operation was per formed the next day.

Dr. Hastings was called and attributed the death to heart trouble. Up to the time of his death Mr. Hammond hud not mentioned any illness and was apparently as well as usual until the moment he was striken. He was working with a threshing crew during the morning. On getting down from the thresher after doing his turn at feeding he spoke a few words to his son, who was standing near. Almost Immed iately following, the men with him saw him reel and caught hltn as ho fell. Those who first reached him say he had died almost instantly. Will was born and reared in Lin coln County ami had friends In every part of the state who will deeply re gret to hear of his death. He was 50 years of age, living his entire llfo In the Eagle Valley settlement.

She knows less about the food roqulred for chil dren between the ages of three and thirteen than she does about any thing else vital to the child. It is during this period ot ten years that the entire foundation of the child's health is built. Ceaseless, loving diligence has taught the average mother what food is to be fed the infant. Long hours In the kitchen has taught her what to feed the fa ther and other adults of the family, but the food required of the grow ing boy or girl of school age remains more or less of a mystery to her. Food that is good for grown ups Is not always good for children, and the same menus and receipes cannot be used for both. Children must have their own foods, prepared and cook ed especially for them. How much food a child should receive depends not only upon his age and size, but upon his environment, activities and physlclal condition as well. At the time of Mary E. Stllwell's visit In Lincoln County, she repeat In a letter received. In Ploche re cently Judge J. A. Sanders protests the classification given him In the Lincoln County ballots. While the Lincoln county vote would not affect the result of the election, Judge San ders desires the people of the county know that he was in no way a party to the mistake. The letter follows: "I am in receipt ot sample ballot purporting to have boen universally used In Lincoln county In which I am designated as a Republican and my opponent as a Democrat. This is contrary to the provisions ot Section 147. p. 507, Stats. 1915: 'No words designating the party affiliation of any candidate for a judicial orflce shall be printed upon the ballot.' "I am of the opinion that some no tice should be taken of this by the County Commissioners In canvassing the returns.

The dessert in ti y be a custard, a junket, a pudd ing made of rice or tapioca or a fruit gelatine. A child of five may have all those tilings, plus a great variety of vege tables, and broiled, stewed or roast ed meats, save pork. At this age the child may also have a greater var iety of desserts, Including simple sponge and gingerbread cakes, corn starch pudding, Ice cream and Ices. A child of ton Is unusually active and its digestive apparatus can take care of almost any natural food, but a child of ten or of twelve or fifteen should not be fed foods soaked In fats or foods over-rich In sweets, or foods highly spiced or seasoned. Fried foods are undesirable, because of the lndibestiblllty of the fat; foods over-rich in sweets or highly spiced, form false appetites and take away the desire for the more whole some and nourishing foods. The thing to remember Is that the child needs wholesome, course, plain food not rich concoctions or high ly seasoned delicacies.
