For Ren has succeeded to the eminence

Nevadaf lawyer secured no resalt from It
for the, time being.
But '.sveryUatna- eomes to htm that waits,
and frheti the people of South Pakota

by tl; referendum vote, declared that any

Reno has no objection to the present
status of affairs. It Is estimated that the
revenue of the town from tho dlvoroe
colony at present Is close to $1,000,100 a
year, and that It will rapidly Increase from
this on. To a community of but IS.flOO
population this Is no small consideration.
Why Reno Is preferred to ary other com
munity In the state as a place of residence
by those seeking divorces Is because of
the manifold advantages f the town over
any other In ths state. Nevada Is primarily
a raining state and nature usually hides
her - precious metals In difficult placos.
Reno is not a mining camp, and Is not
only centrally situated from a railroad
point of view, but has scento attractions
arely to bo found In any American com
munity. It is located In the heart of a rich agri
cultural region, and through '.he center of
the town runs a beautiful mountain stream,
the Truckee river. Surrounding the town,
at a brief distance, are snow-capped moun
ts Ins, and the winds coming from over
their summits keep the air cool on summer
nights. It Is never very warm In iteno.
On the other hand, the winters are com
paratively mild.
An altitude of 4.500 feet makes the atmos
phere somewhat trying on nerves that are
not robust to begin with, but nervous af
fections are the only complaints to which
the climate Is unfavorable
For ths euro of other ailments hot
mineral water springs abound In the vicin
ity of Reno. Twelve miles away are the
famous Steamboat springs which Comstock
millionaires were wont to patronize forty
years ago. Three miles from Reno Is
Moana springs. Five miles from Reno, to
the west, la another famous medicinal re
sort. Laughton's springs, the road to which
runs along the Truckee' river, making a
beautiful driving boulevard. Half way to
Laughton's on this road Is a magnificent
edifice known aa "Kick's," which Is the
local Monte Carlo. Rick's hss all the con
veniences for those who desire to make a
slay, and frequently parlies who go there
to spend a few hours forget to come back
for several days.
It might be mentioned in this connection
that the divorce colony has brought to
Reno over 100 motor cars.
The leading hotels are always crowded
and the rents for cottages have appreciated
on the average to the extent ot 50 per cent
In the last six months. In some Instance
the Increase has been much greater. One
cottags that rested for 0 a month In
January last now returns its owner a
rental of J100 a month.
Biased somewhat by the financial seduc
tions of tho situation, and yet to learn
tho leesoa that such a state of affairs can
only result In tho moral degradation of
iho youth of the community a lesson
which caused South Dakota to reform Its
divorce laws Reno appears to be perfectly
contented with things as they are.
But Nevada la busily engaged In clean
Ing house, and It Is felt by the most re
flective observers that the divorce laws of
Nevada as now written will be a thing of
tho past la the near future. Not In the
very near future for the next legislature
dee not BBOet until January f IXLL There
are ethers ws geiat, 1 the Mperrsao of
South Dakota, which for twenty years
fought the evils of lax divorce laws before
a repeal was secured, and say that the
moralists of Nevada have an equally stub
born task before them. But Nevada Is
cleaning house. In the last session of the
legislature, after gaming being permitted
for forty years with cognizance of law, a
bill abolishing gambling was passed the
act to take effect In November of 1910
nd It Is believed that if that could be
done, the slack divorce laws can be more
easily repealed.
In tne meantime the hotel men and cot
tage renters of Reno and the divorce law
yers will continue to flourish. Parisian
toilettes and sixty-horse power automobiles
will flash and dash through the quiet
thoroughfares at all sorts of hours. Men
and women will continue to become "citi
zens" of Nevada on a six months residence
and leave the state forever after securing
their divorce decrees. New York Times.

Influence of the Typewriter In Social
aa Well as Easiness
The typewriter was invented as a mere
machine for printing the letters of the
alphabet faster and more legibly than they
could be transcribed by hand. But aa soon
as he saw Its possibilities that frisky little
sprite who meddles with the affairs of men
In so many ways turned it into a machine
for making matches. As soon as woman
found that a pretty girl In a trim shirt
waist sitting at a typewriter was one of
the most attractive things In the whole
exhibit of humanity, she took to the ma
chine like a prima donna takes to tho spot
light on the stage. In a season or two the
business world began to blossom as the
rose. The typist sprang up everywhere,
and the man who didn't have one In the
front office felt like an o!d fogy on a back
Pretty girls found this the best pasture
In the business field, and they flocked Into
It. They soon discovered that as an aid
to matrimony the typewriter was forty
lapfc ahead of the mandolin, six bars In
advance of the piano and was only sur
passed by the rowboat and the moonlight
walk. They began to dress for the type
writer, and the handsome young business
men who bad managed to elude the snares
of the ball room, the sociable and the house
party succumbed by thousands. Old men
of millions who guarded their hearts with
the steel door and portcullis found that
the castle had bten Invaded by Cupld, the
typewriter, and surrendered.
She Is a wonder, the typewriter girl, and
she has come to nay to stay, that Is, until
she U ready to get married.
The typewriter has revolutionized a lot
of things. The development of the shirt
waist Is In no small degree to be laid to
Us credit, as Is the formation of tho chew
ing gum trust, the growth af the soda
water traffic and the enormous business
In puffs, rolls and bck hair. It has caused
more bad spelling, family disturbances and
marriages than aiy other Invention of
modern times. It las scattered millions
of letters, lovo stories, plays and husbands

WASHINGTON, Aug. 26. (Special.) For
a yeai- past the Indian office has been en
deavoring to bring to an end the sale of the
peyota, otherwise known as the mescal or
bean, which has obtained extensive use
among some of the Indian tribes.
It la produced from a cactus that grows
in the southwest, particularly In Texas, not
far from Laredo, and In Mexico, about
forty miles west of that town. The cactus
grows In the form of a radish or parsnip,
rounded at the top, with Indented center.
About an Inch or more of the top Is cut off
and when dried In the sun the blossom
becomes cottony iu appearance, and resul's
In the Spanish name for the caterpillar,
peyote, being applied to the product.
It has no connection with the brewed
liquor from the agave or century plant,
known as mescal; neither Is It to be con
founded with the other larger cascus grow
Ing in the form of a beet, known as mescal,
which Is eaten by the Apache Indians, who
are called from their us; of It, the Me
caleros. The botanical name of the cactus
from which the peyote la produced Is lop
hophora. The peyote has powerful narcotic proper
ties and is used In two forms the dried
product chewed and swallowed, or distilled
in water and the Infusion drank. The time which It takes to effect is dependent
on the amount used.
Ceases Wonderfal Visions,
Taken In large quantities the effect Is al
most immediate. In most instances produc
ing nausea followed by stupor, in which all
sorts of beautiful visions are experienced.
It Is accompanied by great elevation of
spirit and a feeliug of good will toward U
As used by tho Indians, they become
wholly unconscious, but a gentleman who
recently experimented 00 himself, and who,
apparently, did not take as much of the
narcotic as la usual, at no time completely
lost consciousness, and was cognizant of
his surroundings. lie said that all ordinary
colors were greatly heightened In Intensity
and beauty, and that' when he closed his
eyes a procession of Chinese pagodas with
beautiful colored trimmings, pleading geo
metrical designs, and peacocks of brilliant
plumage seeing! to float In endless proces
sion before htm.
While this Is the usual experience of users
of the peyote, a case where the contrary
effect was produced has been brought to
the attention of the Indian office. An In
dlan of the Sac and Fox reservation, Iowa,
while under the Influence had a vision In
which he went to the place of torment
where everything la hot, saying that he
stepped on th floor and that burned his
feeti he put his hand en th wall, U was
burned there, and that he sat down on a
chair and was burned again.
Part ot a Ceremonial.
In nearly all th Indian tribes the use
of peyote has been accompanied by the es
tablishment of a sort of religious cult, but
the so-called religious services are accom
panied by various heathenish practices. It
is claimed by the Indian devotees that the
white man cannot obtain the benefits from
the use of the narcgtlo that come to the
Indians because God sent into the world
for the benefits ot the white man the Holy
Spirit as his comforter, a blessing which
never came to the Indian, but that the
peyote performs the same office for the
Indian that the Holy Spirit does for the
white man, and through this medium the
Indian Is able to commune with Ood.
At a recent assembly among the Poncas
In Oklahoma, where the Indians were
gathered together In a tent, it was claimed
that out of the "bean" lying on the crescent-shaped
altar In the center there would
emerge the body of the Savior, visible only
In this form to those members who partook
of a sufficient number of peyotes to ob
tain this concession from th Deity. To the
tune of weird songs and the continuous
beating of the tom-tom was added the nar
cotic Influence of the peyotes, as all eyes
remained Intensely fixed upon the altar.
At times Incense was thrown upon the
altar fire and the frangrance wafted by
the leader over the "bean." A cigarette
was passed to represent the pipe of peace.
At midnight a cup, like that used In com
munion services, was passed with a large
pail in which peyotes had been steeped and
the water sprinkled over the heads of the
participants, who also took draughts of the
concoction. The ceremony was continued
until morning, and two or three days
elapsed before the participants wholly re
covered from its effects. Some of the In
dians describe the effects of the use of
peyotes as producing the sight of gold
clouds floating around great suns rising at
t Scientific Verdict.
Dr. S. Weir Mitchell made a study of the
peyote and experimented by taking some
of It himself, and has described the sen
sations produced. A number of other ex
perimenters have done the same thing,
but they all lacked a knowledge of the
effect of long continued use.
In the Smithsonian institute pub
lished a paper on the subject of Havelock
Kills entitled, "Mescal, a New Artificial
Paradise." The Bureau of Chemistry of
the Agricultural department analyzed the
article and found that it contained four
alkaloldal constituents: anhalonlne, mes
caline, anhalonidlne and lophoporine; aside
from these two other elements were Iso
lated called pellotlne and anhalamlne. The
analyses that have been made, the ele
ments above described being taken Into
consideration, do not explain th effect
produced on the user, but this Is also
true of other substances. The Indians pro
test against any Interference with the sup
ply of the narcotic because of Its use In
connection with religious ceremonies, and
many of them Insist that It has valuable
medicinal qualities, being a specific for
forms of disease. Physicians who have had
it under observation, say the peyote has no
medicinal properties whatever, and that In
dians who, for a period, used It for all
sorts jt allmenta, hav abandoned U and

returned to other drugs and medicines.
The action on the nerves Is so Intense,
that In some Instanoes, persons who wire in
poor physical condition and Indulged to a
considerable extent, died as a result of the
Indulgence Only one case has been re
ported to the Indian office where an ap
parently healthy person died as a result of
Its use. The effects of Indulgence last
longer than In the use of alcohol, th tak
ing of a small amount lasting for not less
than thirty-six hours afterward. The mind
apparently becomes clear after the visions
have departed, but lassitude continues fur
quite a long period. The continued use or
peyotes deprives the user of both menial
and physical vigor; It Is not accompanied
by violence as is th us of alcohol, and
for that reason some well-meaning men
have suggested that Its use be not Inter
dicted because of Its removing the appetite
for alcoholic liquors In those who becomu
