Certainly an experience of over half a life time should teach a man at least enough of the laws of nature to pro- tect himself from his own peculiar weaknesses. It is at once extra- ordinary and shameful that the young are not drilled more carefully ill the laws of hygiene. The idea that whatever tastes good is healthy, is so silly that people who have given the least thought to the oper- ations of digestion and assimilation, would be ashamed to be thought guilty of believing it. Au article of food may please the palate and sour the stomach, or it may be adapted to both and disagree with the liver. If over work or bad food reduces a body, so neuralgia, dyspepsia or eartarrah sets in, the first thing is to rush to a doctor or buy a lot of pat- ent medicines. If an ulcer appears, the doctor says put on a salve. The aore disappears, but the poison that made it is not removed from the blood. If It is a catarrah, he pre- scribes a snuff ami the discharge stops. Where does the poison go then? Into the blood. The blood is rushing to every part of the body, and all the time trying to throw off the poison. If the man would take a bath, it might go off through the pores, but the chances are he will try to relieve his headache by some other kind of patent medicine. The true remedy is to stop all worry, don't over work the mind, eat good food, wash the skin and let or twelve thousand yean. There la nothing to show that the elephant has not roamed Here within a shorter time, and the dog, deer and bird tracks may belong to any period. Scientists agree with Mr. Havenor that this basin was under water during the carboniferous age, and for that reason aay we will never find coal In Nevada, but Prof. Le Conte believes that the basin was above water during the paleozoic age, and then sank down beneath the tea and remained there during the Jurassic and triasslo, and he be- lieves the tracks were made when it was up first, perhaps in the pleo- cene or glacial period. There is one thing which no one seems to have taken into con- sideration. There is a peat bog in front of the quarry on the north, which came right up to the edge of the quarry. A tod baa gone down sixty feet right at the prison wall. Part pf the prison was built on it, and when the prison walls were laid they were unstable, and a good many cords of wood and lumber were thrown in to make a founda- tion. It is not easy to explain how a sandstone bluff seventy-five feet high could be built upon the bank of a shallow lake, while it would be the natural result of the river rnn- ning by it. A SKWTHEOBY. A somewhat startling theory of the origin of scarlet fever is pro- pounded by Dr. 3. C. Peters, a prominent and Influential physi- cian of New York city. At a meet- Ing of the Columbian Veterinary College, lately, Dr. Peters advanced the hypothesis that the scarlet fever originates among horses, and that each case of this disease may be ul- timately traced to these animals. The facts and data fur- nished to fortify the theory are for- midable, and will gofai to convince inquirers. Should this discovery be amply verified, the time may come when equine virus must be used for purposes of inoculation, and the scourge of childhood may be averted, as the smallpox mow is, by skillful physicians and surgeons. THEIlt A. Walker, the nature have a chance. The neural- gia, dyspepsia, catarrah headache, salt rheum, ami all that will go. Dr. Dio. Lewis says the true treatment is as follows: Gat a dish of oat meal, one baked potato and one slice of bread for breakfast; a piece of roast beef as Urge as your hand, with one bMled potato and one slice of bread for dinner; noth- ing for supper, and go to bed early. Sleep if possible half an hour bo- fore dinner. Drink nothing with your nor immediately after. Drink cold water on rising and go- Ing to bed, and before meals if de- Bired, Some weak stomachs need these draughts hot instead of cold. Live four to six hours a day out- doors. Bathe frequently, and rub the akin hard with hair gloves every night. In less than a week one handkerchief will do you and yet yon haven't touched medicine to your nose. TO Dr. Frsnees efficient and enthusiastic head of the Boston Inntitute of Technology, la reported to be doing excellent work in the way of inducing many of the boys of that city to become The tendency of hoys generally In this country, especially during the last 25 year-, has been in favor of adopting one or the other of what is learned professions, and the result already reached wjth the exception of the clergy, the learned professions are all overcrowded, and the law and medicine, which, in the country's earlier days, were broad, straight roads to honor and wealth, are no longer so; it is only in ex- ceptional cases that they are not the narrowest, orookedest, roughest and longest roads of all to fame or riches. They are filled to overflow- ing with young men of fair ability, struggling desperately for the bare necessaries of life. But the places which technically educated me- chanics should fill, are generally empty, for mechanics is not con- sidered a profession, and our boys have preferred failure in a profession KPITOKIAL MOTJB8. The Marquis of Salisbury, speak- ing at a banquet of the Carlton club, said: The defeat of Hicks Pascha must end all thoughts of the withdrawal of British troops from Egypt. French papers ex- press the opinion that the disaster will lead to a permanent English occupation of Kgypt. The French Chamber of Depu- ties discussed the estimates for warship, and the extreme left attacked the attitude of the clergy and demanded a separation of church and State. Nevada has been without a Gov- ernor (hi? or little) for two months, and has succeeded In getting along just as well as though both those dignitaries had been at their post of duty. It Is believed that a correspond- ent of the London Graphic, who accompanied Hicks Pasha, was killed. _____ Ihe Silver Carson corres- pondent predicts a verdict for the Northern Belle In the famous auit. THE The Energy or mature 4 Displayed. Very few places indeed have the advantages possessed by Reno in the immense scale on which the scenery in planned, anc 110 one feature is more beautiful and interesting than the storms that sweep across from the Pacific and become tangled in the peaks and ranges. It would make a poet of a Piute to study the vast pictures that spread themselves on the canvas of the sky In evei varying beauty and grandeur. The Sierra Nevada range lies only a few miles vest of us, and from foundation to ridge pole, every line is visible. It stretches north and south IN MAGNIFICENCE, And shoots up ragged peaks at Mount Rose, Tallac and Job's peak. When California is under a cloud, some of the vapor is almost certain to be blown across, but not always in sufficient quantities to make a storm. In very many cases it bangs in pictureique shapes around the mountain tops, and n others it stretches off to the east in every conceivable variety ef color and shape. When 'a light mist creeps down the mountain side, it often follows the deep canyons leav- ing the ridges bare. It is easy to imagine that some huge cauldron full of candy bad been emptied over the summit and was slowly rolling towards the valley. It would not be a bad place for Santa Claus to make his preparations for Chrlst- mas. At other times great walls of white pile silently one on top of the other, and finally break and tumble down the eastern slope. It is only once or twice a year that THB STORM KINO Really rouses himself to a fury and then the miirhty bierra is a sight tobtbold. Black bunches of clouds BEXOTEIOB W. M. Havenor, who la a man of wide reading and of no mean nat- ural intelligence, has been looking over the Carson quarry, and he doesn't believe the sandstone la of a very old formation. He points to the absence of coal as evidence that this basin was under water until a comparatively recent period. He bad some of the rock analyzed and finds that it 84.4; carb. of calcium, 6.2; carb. of mag- nesia, 3.1; iron, 3.2; moisture, 3.1. It is calcareous rock and might easily have been hardened in a abort time if the supply was thrown iu. There are different ways in this could have been done. The Carson river may have run here once, as Mr. Havenor flu ggesti, or the whole basin may have risen and lake bed have been drained with the rest of the country. In any case there is considerable reason to believe that the tracks date back to to success In the workshop. If Dr. Walker or any other teacher can convince them that mechanics ia a certain road to prosperity, and can iuduce our boys to take to it, be is one of the greatest of public bene- Mechanics is just such a road In this country, which is teeming with all sorts of material to be man- ufactured. It is the highest tech- nical education that is required for the proper development of this great mass of natural wealth, and the mechanics who have that sort of education will for many years find the way to success an easy one. Such a mechanic need not work with his hands, but with bis brains; plan schemes, Invent and improve machines, manufactories, mines, furnaces and forges, and all that resulta through labor from them. J'he learned master-me- chanic must long to be in America, the most needed because the most useful of its citizens. That is inevitable when there ia so much mechanical work to be planned and done. In 50 years, when the population of the United States shall have be- come the young man will have to hunt far for a place to grow up with the country. The struggle for a living will then be a serious one. It therefore behoves young men to look about them and A New Industry. The Verdi Planing Mill Company are driving a thrifty trade in fram- ing muterial for farmers living in the Kan Joaquin valley. They have already put Up several cottages. A great naving is effected in freight, as the parties only have to pay on what Is actually neerterl. Parties sonrtincr them an order foracottage, giving dimension and style, can get It already to set up in a very short time. Valley Beef. Sierra valley farmers are not feeding as many beef cattle as in former yeais. titraug and Hum- phries are feeding about 200 head; James Miller feeding head as against last Winter; Ed Free- man feeding 200 head, and F. M. Knland has about 60 as against 150 last Winter. The .stock cattle in the valley will eat this year's hay crop before Spring. Hay is held at per ton. Tint Buny Farmer. Out at Lovelock farmers are plowing and otherwise preparing for large crops next season, and sev- eral of them will try the experi- ment of raising crops without ir- rigation, and if they succeed, with the present reduced rates on grainy they can then raise it with a profit, BH the cost of irrigation amounts to considerable. The Ontlook In the IHnat IKarbe Stockmen are holding beef cattle at 7J rents now, notwithstanding that there la quite a brisk demand for cattle to feed, and it seems to be a prevailing opinion among stock- men that butchers below will have to pay at least 81 cents for Nevada beef before Spring. fly swiftly across the sky, the wind can almost be seen as it roars through the passes and among the broken ridges. Squalls of snow are pressed from the heavy bosoms of the clouds and are heaped in great drifts behind each rockv wall or fallen tree. No one at a distance can even Imagine the force and majesty displayed at such a time. Wheu the '1 itauic forces are equal- ized and the skiea are clear again the transformation is inexpressibly beautiful. The sun lights up the new fallen snow, the trees axe sil- ver and ail the harsh lines softened. There is a vagueness of outline and a look of porcelain transparency on the surface, as if one could see into it a little way, that is almost weird. When the light falls at another angle every line ia as clear as cop- per plate and the whole landscape is dazzling bright. Sometimes a breeze will pick up the loose snow and stretch it in a long BANNER-LIKE LOTH From the top of thj higher peaks, their walls just breaking the force of the wind sufficient to keep the particles afloat. When the air is laden with moisture and suddenly turns colder, pogonip results, and any one standing on the summit would see1 an ocean of milk with an occasional 'brown island where a mountain range had been. A rare gtorm is seen from Reno sometimes which looks as if it might be a cross section of two seasons of the year. Far up the bitter cold of January congeals the moisture in heavy banks of clouds and a February snow storm starts down towards the plains. As it falls through a lower stratum it is turned into a cold March or April rain. In sun- lise or sunset there is no country which enjoys more beautiful or in- teresting sights than this, and it is well to learn to appreciate them. The scenery of the sKy far exceeds any landscape in color, form and TIMES.

All the men except three had gone to camp. Those put of the blasts and went to camp also He was not missed until 7 o'clock Then It was thought he had gont to the Gap in company with the blacksmiths who had gone down 01 business, so noffnrther search or in qliiry was made. This morning when the aaeu went to work he was fouud on a loaded oar, about 100 feet from the blast, where he was engaged at the time measuring and marking rock. He was between two rocks and still in a partial standing position, with papers in his left Band. His head was.badly mashed and the left side of the head carried away.

Silverware Uncovered. A year ago last May, says the Truckee Republican, one of J. F. Moody's teams, loaded with freight for the Tallac House, bioke through the bridge across Dormer stream, just above Marzen's slaughter- house. Among other things, a large quantity of silverware was swept down irto the turbulent Truckee. An extended search was made at the time, but only a few articles of silverware were re- coveied. The water is now quite low in the river, and a few days ago while out fishing, Mr. Walker fished out a package of 87 forks. They were turned over to Mr. Moody. Mtock Notea.

Editor I see by the Virginia CAromeJeof the 19th in- stant that 18 of the Emmet in competing for the Saraneld medal made the remarkable score ol 779, or an average of 43f. If they insist that the published scores are correct, I am willing to wager that the same 18 cannot re- peat the score in 10 trials to bt> made within 30 days, each and every trial to be by the whole team independent of every other trial. Or, I will wager that same 18 cannot make 750 within 3d days and in one 20 points lees than published the score. Or, I will wager that Carson Guard can beat the Emmet Guard in a match of 18 men, Id each at 200 yards, each team to shoot over their own range. Should any of these be accepted I shall insist that I be allowed to send responsible men to- act as markers and score and to see that everything ia squarely done. J. R. KINO.
