"Eureka weights only about half a pound," replied the horse, in a scornful tone, "while I weigh about half a ton."
"It wasn't a peach, Eureka," said Dorothy.
"That is right, Eureka," remarked the Wizard, earnestly.
"Hush, Eureka!" warned the Wizard.
When he returned the Princess looked down the narrow neck of the big ornament and discovered her lost piglet, just as Eureka had said she would.
He turned and walked down the street, and after a moment's hesitation Dorothy caught Eureka in her arms and climbed into the buggy.
"The piglet that belonged to the Princess wore an emerald collar," said Eureka, loudly enough for all to hear.
Eureka was much surprised to find herself in disgrace; but she was, in spite of the fact that she had not eaten the piglet.
"How horrid of you, Eureka!" cried Dorothy.
Everybody lives in peace here, and loves everybody else; and unless you two, Billina and Eureka, make up and be friends, I'll take my Magic Belt and wish you both home again, IMMEJITLY.
"I don't b'lieve Eureka would do such a dreadful thing!" cried Dorothy, much distressed.
"Come here, Eureka!" she said.
"You don't need milk, Eureka," remarked Dorothy; "you are big enough now to eat any kind of food."
"Isn't it fine?" cried Dorothy, in a joyous voice, as she sprang out of the buggy and let Eureka run frolicking over the velvety grass.
The children were inclined to be frightened by the sight of the small animal, which reminded them of the bears; but Dorothy reassured them by explaining that Eureka was a pet and could do no harm even if she wished to.
"Yes," sighed Eureka; "and I also can see you again, and the sight makes me dreadfully hungry.
"You see, Eureka," remarked Dorothy, reprovingly, "you are making yourself disliked.
"Oh, I don't know," purred Eureka, smoothing her ruffled fur with her paw; "we didn't manage to hurt anybody, and nobody managed to hurt us."
"No they won't," said the voice of the kitten, and Eureka herself crawled over the edge of the platform and sat down quietly upon the floor.
"Wherever have you been, Eureka?" asked Dorothy, sternly.
The Wizard had listened intently to what Eureka had said.
Now, Eureka, you'll have to show me the way to those wings.
Eureka clung with her claws to the wooden side of the house and let herself down easily.
Eureka quickly followed him, and soon they were all standing together upon the platform, with eight of the much prized wooden wings beside them.
They mounted into the buggy, Dorothy holding Eureka safe in her lap.
"Eureka sees better in the dark than we can," whispered Dorothy.
Hearing this, Dorothy and the Wizard exchanged startled glances, for they remembered how often Eureka had longed to eat a piglet.
"Why do you want me?" asked Eureka, disturbed by this threat.
"Tell me, Eureka," said the Princess, gently: "did you eat my pretty piglet?"
"Oh, cut it short," said Eureka; "you've talked long enough."
As the Princess held the white piglet in her arms and stroked its soft hair she said: Let Eureka out of the cage, for she is no longer a prisoner, but our good friend.
Dorothy was herself anxious to get home, so she promised Eureka they would not stay in the Land of Oz much longer.
Eureka was a dark Appaloosa with dark spots on white loins, quarters and croup.
They left Eureka and Adora with the younger horses.
Eureka belonged to Random and Jonathan, equally – heart and soul.
Another mining region that attained importance in the early period was the Eureka District, in Eureka county, about 90 m.
The Nevada mines are mostly grouped around the city of Eureka, where the ore occurs in "pockets" disseminated at random through limestone.
In 1900 a dozen other towns had a population exceeding 2500, the most important being Hot Springs (9973), Helena (5550), Texarkana (4914), Jonesboro (4508), Fayetteville (4061), Eureka Springs (3572), Mena (3423) and Paragould (3324).
In Humboldt county, in the redwood belt near Eureka, are probably the most modern and remarkable lumber mills of the world.
San Diego has a very good harbour, and those of San Pedro, Port Los Angeles, and Eureka are fairly good and of growing importance.
Eight other cities had populations of more than 5000 - Riverside City (7973), Vallejo (7965), Eureka (7327), Santa Rosa (6673), Santa Barbara (6587), San Bernardino (6156), Santa Cruz (5659), and Pomona (5526).
The production of this lode declined in 1876, but the total production of this country was increased by discoveries in Colorado (Leadville) and Nevada (Eureka); and in more recent years silver-producing areas in other states (Montana, Utah, Idaho) have been exploited.
In the same year the largest producing gold mines were the Centennial Eureka in Juab county, the Mercur in Tooele county, and the Utah Consolidated and the Utah Copper in Salt Lake county.
Apart from its share in the agricultural interests of the surrounding region, - devoted mainly to Indian corn, small grains and fruits, - the entire economy of Eureka Springs centres in its medicinal springs, more than forty of which, lying within the corporate limits, are held in trust by the city for the free use of the public. The temperature of the springs varies from about 57° F.
Eureka Springs and Wild Cat Cave are of interest to visitors, and attractive scenery is furnished by the river and its bordering bluffs.
Oh no; it's just Eureka, my kitten.
Eureka isn't pink; she's white.
Eureka walks on the air all right.
"Oh, Eureka!" cried Dorothy, "did you eat the bones?"
Eureka stuck up her nose at such food, but the tiny piglets squealed delightedly at the sight of the crackers and ate them up in a jiffy.
"Don't be rough!" he would call out, if Eureka knocked over one of the round, fat piglets with her paw; but the pigs never minded, and enjoyed the sport very greatly.
Eureka helped him by flying into the faces of the enemy and scratching and biting furiously, and the kitten ruined so many vegetable complexions that the Mangaboos feared her as much as they did the horse.
Eureka yawned and stretched herself.
"Why, where's Eureka?" cried Dorothy, suddenly.
Never mind; they'll get Eureka, whatever they're called.
"I won't answer such a foolish question," asserted Eureka, with a snarl.
So, if you are innocent, Eureka, you must tell the Princess how you came to be in her room, and what has become of the piglet.
"Don't be impudent, Eureka," admonished Dorothy.
So the Captain-General took Eureka from the arms of the now weeping Dorothy and in spite of the kitten's snarls and scratches carried it away to prison.
Look at the kitten's intelligent eyes;" (here Eureka closed her eyes sleepily) "gaze at her smiling countenance!"
(Here Eureka bared her sharp claws and scratched at the bars of the cage.)
If you hadn't happened to find the piglet, Eureka would surely have been executed.
"But justice prevailed at the last," said Ozma, "for here is my pet, and Eureka is once more free."
Dorothy held Eureka in her arms and bade her friends a fond good-bye.
Eureka rubbed her paw on her face and said in her soft, purring voice:
Only a fairy country could have veg'table people; and only in a fairy country could Eureka and Jim talk as we do.
As they sat upon the grass watching Jim, who was still busily eating, Eureka said:
"Let's see the pigs," said Eureka, eagerly.
In the production of silver Nye county ranked first in 1907 ($3,667,973, of which $3,544,7 88 was from Tonopah), Churchill county second ($432,617, from Fairview, Wonder and Stillwater), and Eureka county (with lead silver ores) and Storey county were third and fourth respectively.
Considerable quantities of the following minerals have been found: barytes (heavy spar), magnetite (magnetic iron ore), and pyrolusite (manganese dioxide) in Humboldt county; roofing slate in Esmeralda county; cinnabar (ore containing quicksilver) in Washoe county; haematite in Elko and Churchill counties; cerussite and galena (lead ores) in Eureka county; and wolframite (a source of tungsten) at Round Mountain, White Pine county.
It is met at several points by lines which serve the rich mining districts to the south; at Cobre by the Nevada Northern from Ely in White Pine county in the Robinson copper mining district; at Palisade by the Eureka & Palisade, a narrow-gauge railway, connecting with the lead and silver mines of the Eureka District; at Battle Mountain by the Nevada Central, also of narrow gauge, from Austin; at Hazen by the Nevada & California (controlled by the Southern Pacific) which runs to the California line, connecting in that state with other parts of the Southern Pacific system, and at Mina, Nevada, with the Tonopah & Goldfield, which runs to Tonopah and thence to Goldfield, thus giving these mining regions access to the Southern Pacific's transcontinental service; and at Reno, close to the western boundary, by the Virginia & Truckee, connecting with Carson City, Minden, in the Carson Valley, and Virginia City, in the Comstock District, and by the Nevada-California-Oregon, projected to run through north-eastern California into Oregon, in 1910, in operation to Alturas, California.
