Ghe Grea.t State of Nevada.
(Special correspondence.) Nevada ia bounded on the south and west by California, north by Oregon and Idaho, east by Utah and Arizona. It is larger than Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Dele ware, Maryland, Rhode Island, Connecticut and one-half of West Virginia, combined. In its pro duction of gold and silver between the years 1866 and 1902 she ranks the third state in the Union, and since 1902 up to the present time her production has relatively in creased greater than any other state. It was the cradle of the great Comstock mine. Nothing in the mining world has exceeded in richness the great Comstock lode. Humboldt county contains an area of 16,800 square miles. It would make two states as large as Massachusetts and New Jersey and there would still be left over 610 square miles for a Piute Indian reservation. The Willow Creek mining dis trict contains an area of 200 square miles The principal minerals contained in thb district are gold, silver and lead. Owing to one or two failures made in the mining business by cattlemen, who pur chased an old stamp mill worn out and forty years behind the times, the development of the district has been greatly retarded, was erected fourteen miles from the The mill properties and it cost $16 per ton to haul the ore and $65 per day to run a five stamp mill. Is it any wonder that failures were made and the district received a setback from which it is only now recover ing? There is quite a few mining men in the hills at present, as the wea ther is beautiful and very little snow has lallen so far this season. It, is now evident that at least two or three companies will commence work in the spring. Let the pessimist predict, but the North Star Mining and Milling company is quite prepared for the man from Missouri, James Goodwin. Growth of Ida.ho for 1905. Indicative of the growth of Ida ho during the past year, says a Salt Lake dispatch, the passenger department of the Oregon Short Line announces that since January 1, 1905, it has brought to Idaho 8764 bona tide settlers. These fig ures are divided into two classes and show 1586 colonists from Ore gon, Washington and British Col umbia, and 7178 from all points Allowing three people con east. stituting the family of each settle-, this would indicate that the popu lation of Idaho will be increased 26,292 this year when all the fami lies of the advance gu rd arrive. These totals show up well when it is announced that of the settlers coming to Utah during the same period the Short Line has only hauled the meagre tolal of 59. The total number of passengers handled by the system during the period has been 56,523 west same bound and 38,554 eastbound. During the year 1905 the Short Line has constructed in Utah and Idaho 135.80 miles of new track which in detail is as follows: Miles 4.0 Boise brauch extension. Malad Valley (Garland to Malad, City). Mmidoka & Southwestern Yellowstone Park . Sugar City. Lewiston. Elva. Ijogau to Wellsville,Utah. In order to take care of the grow ing demands on the motive power department the Oregon Short Line has just placed an order for lOcon solidated freight engines, 10 Pacific .... 32.0 .... 59.1 .. . 15.0 .... 5.77 .... 1.40 .... 10.17 8.36 type passenger engines, four Bwitch engines, five passenges coaches, two baggage cars and 300 steel coal cars. This order will have the effect of relieving any similar car and locomotive famine to that which has been in evidence. At this particular time of year the average girl doesn't object to having people think her feet are big as hams and that her stockings will hold an upright piano or a ton of coal. It is wonderful what a little Chrifitmas cheer will do. A hungry looking man hurried into a restaurant the oilier day, and, climbing upon one of the stools at the lunch counter, reached for one of the well-worn and much thumbed bills of fare. He read it all through two or three times, called a waiter and gave his order: "I guess I'll begin with a ccuple of plate* of fly specks." "Fly specks!" exclamed the astonished waiter. "Why, we don't serve # fly specks." "Well, then why don't you take them off the bill of fare?" waiter's reply is not recorded.
