The State Board of Health, in a recent circular says: "There appears to be an erroneous impression among physicians regarding the regulations for burial permits. Physicians under these regulations will use the same blank forms for return of deaths, and procure their supply from the county clerk, as heretofore. Instead of delivering these returns to the county clerk they are to be delivered, on application, to the undertaker or person having charge of the burial. The undertaker or person having charge of the burial must deliver the certificate or return of death to the city clerk or recorder, who will thereupon issue a burial permit, and not otherwise. The city clerk will deliver the physician's certificate of death to the county clerk. These regulations apply only t<, deaths occurring within cities and towns. For deaths occurring outside of cities and town limits the physician's return must be made to the county clerk.—(Nov. 5, 1884.)

The improvements in Nevada the present season have not been as great as we could have desired, yet the list below shows there has been no stand still. It will be seen that thousands of dollars have been spent in this town alone. While no business building has been erected the past season, there are indications that at least two blocks-three if not four rooms-will be added to our present substantial ones the coming summer, and thus aid in making the town more important, and we shall refer to them at length as soon as they are beyond the embryotic stage. The list below is composed of new residences, and of substantial improvements as indi-
