The Index expresses so Well what has been the Gazette s text for Many a Sermon that its words Are Given in full. From one step to another it has been developed that Nevada is a state having really vast agricultural resources but our people seem As yet hardly aware of the fact. The science of irrigation is yet in its infancy and its necessity for the successful cultivation of some of the Staples is beginning to be doubted. At All events the water Supply is ample for three times the area and products now cultivated. The products which Are capable of being produced in excellent Quality As Well As Quantity Are hardly limited la variety. We be Lieve that in due time the grape will be found to have a Home As natural to it in Nevada As in Spain France Palestine or Arabia. Fruits of every class May be raised Here in abundance and their flavor greatly surpasses those of Callonia. The cereals and vegetables of Nev Ada Are As excellent As anywhere in the world. This state is easily capable of maintaining from its own soil a million of inhabitants. It is time that our people began to recognize this fact and to make our Community so self supporting As to be really Independent of mining and the Railroad extortion Between us and the states and territories which we still allow to bring us the food and merchandise which we ought ourselves to be producing. We have no hesitation in saying that Nevada is fully the equal of Utah or Colorado As an agricultural state so suon As her resources in that direction Are properly under stood and developed.

There Are several tunnels in the Mountain East of Washoe Lake by which some italian ranchers irrigate Large patches of Garden. An Artesian Well would be just As Valu Able lying Flat on its Back As it would set on end if there a a Mountain Over it and it would be cheaper to build. A change of base. There is some talk among Stock holders of Dis incorporating the Par Adise Valley mining company in san Francisco incorporating under the Laws of Nevada with the principal office in Winnemucca says the Silver state.

She spoke of her intention freely to some friends before her de parture who telegraphed to Mackay. It is asserted that when he was apprised of mrs. Smallman s movement he sailed for Europe but that part of the report is not credited Mackay can find ample Protection in new York against any murderous plots of this nature. But it is not at All improbable that the woman will seek to avenge herself in some manner. That she would shoot Mackay on sight is also not believed improbable by those who known her. The Oregon Short line. Superintendent Doddridge of the Union Pacific and Oregon Short line says that the Road is already completed to a Point about 10 Miles beyond Caldwell on the Boise River and that track laying was progressing at the rate of a mile and a half per Day. 22 Miles from Caldwell the second crossing of Snake Biver will be reached and there the work will be delayed for a month or six weeks by the building of the Bridge. As the completion of the Structure will not take place until in november and it will then la the opening of Winter the Ter minus will remain As it now is at Caldwell until the Spring months. 75 Miles More of Road will bring the track to Burnt River where the anticipated Junction with the Ore gon River navigation company will be made.

Progress is very rapid now Over sinking by tors. Lost River Idaho is a graphic curiosity. The Boise statesman says of it the Stream is larger than Wood River and flows with a Good current Between solid Banks until it reaches the lava Plains where it has heretofore been thought to disappear in the Rock. This has however been found to be an error As the course of the Stream can be easily traced some 20 Miles further flowing through a Cleft in the lava having changed its course to the Northeast and at last flowing close to the foot Hilts sinks in an open Sagebrush Plain. Some 25 Miles beyond Arco which is situated in the lower part of the lost River Valley is what is known As the Little lost River.
