State Famous During Glorious Days of
Comstock Lode. Still in
Silver Production
Washington. Oct. 30. —Nova ia is es
sentially a metal-producing State, me
tallic products constituting more than .
per cent. of the total value of the
State's mineral output, according to
(he United States geological survey..
Though Nevada ; .s at present of much
less relative importance as a ininiug
State than it was in the "glory" days
of the famous Comstock lode, it eon
i tmus to rank first .n the production of
silvir, which is third among the miner
al products of the State. The most im
portant mineral product of Nevada is
copper, in the production of which Ne ;
vada ranks fifth among the States. Gold
nunittg ranks second among the State's
miueral industries. The production of
copper increased from $6,47 7,49 4
pounds in 1912 to 90.693.T0l pounds
in 1913. but with a decline in value
from J14.265.757 to SI 4.057.531.
Copper mining is one of the new indus
tries of the State. It Jul not begin o:i 1
an important scale uutil 190S, with
the development of the Kly district in
White Fine county. In 1907. prior to
ttu' levelopment of the Ely district, the
copper production of the State was U'--
than 2,000,000 pounds, but in 1913
\it exceeded 90.000,000 pounds.
In sympathy with the general tend- j
ency in the decreased production of
gold, the output of gold iu Neva,la de
creased from 650.943 fine ounces, val
ied at 813.436.150. in 1912. to 370.-
559 due ounces, valued at $11,795,130
in 1913. More than 60 per cent, of the
gold produced in Nevada in 1912 and,
1913 came from the Goldtiell and Ton
opah districts.
The production of silver increased
from 14.369,063 fine ounces, valued at 1
55.556.97 4. in 1912. to 16,090.083 fine
ounces, valued at 89.715.410. in 1913.
About 70 per cent, of the silver output
is derived from the Tonopah district.
To what extent the Comstock lode in
Churchill county has fallen from its
high estate in the production of silver
is indicated by the fact that ; u 1576.
when this famous district was at its
zenith, the output was over 17,000.000
ounces of silver, ami in 1913 the total
production from Churchill county was
less than 1.300.000 ounces.
The total value of the iu ; neral prod-'
uets of Nevada in 1913 amounted to
837.542.054. against 839.111.52S in

Philadelphia to Atlantic City, two leer

Americans' Surplus Flesh Saps Energy
and Ruins Appearance
Washington, CV-t. 30.—American
men are too fat. They are carrying!
around a lot of surplus flesh which saps
their energy, ruins their appearance and
offers no compensation. They should got
busy, preferably witfh the Swedish phys
ical culture system, and lose tilie fat.
This, in effect, is the conclusion
which Surgeon .1. A. Murphy makes
in his report to the Navy Department.
It is based upon his examination of ap
plicants for enlistment.
'"The majority of American men and
boys are muscularly weak from the
waist line up, the legs usually showing
up well as regards strength," Dr. Mur
ihy said. "Many are strong, hut
through excess of weight, usually fat,
prove relatively weak."
These types, with few exceptions,
have rounded backs, protruding abdo
mens, drooping heads and flat chests.
Any attempt at effort lacks |>ower, be
cause orientation is disturbed ami the!
normal strnight line of thrust through
the bones ami .joints is lost.
