"snowy," and j
ls taken from |
tho Sierra f
Novadas, \
those lofty mountains which sop- t
arate the State from California. \
Most of the history of the state 1
centers In this Western section, j
near the Sierras, and lt Is here |
that nil of Nevndu's principal j
cities aro located. 4
The first white mau to cross
the present state waa the Fran
ciscan Monk, Father Gares, who
made his way across tho deserta
to California lu 1775. In 1825
Peter S. Ogden of tho Hudson's
Bay company discovered the
Humboldt river, which is some
times called Ogden river after
him.
The next memorable trip
across the stato was that by
Fremont In 1848, when he went
to California at the time of the
outbreak of the Mexican war.
It was this war which in 1848
resulted In Mexico ceding a large
area to the Unltod States, of
which Nevada was a part. When
this was organized Into terri
tories, the Territory of Utah ex
tended to California. The West
ern Inhabitants, howover, were
left to their own resources and
accordingly organized their own
government. Resenting t:ie at
titude of Utah they petitioned
to be annexed to California.
In 1859 tho Comstock L^|c
was discovered and Novada mid
its own mining boom. Popula
tion Immediately grew by leaps
and hounds and In 1801 Nevada
was formed Into a separate ter
ritory. Later, portions of Club
were added and the lower part
of the stnte was taken from Ari
zona. Petitions for statehood
were made but lt was not until
1804 thnt Nevada became the
thirty-sixth state of the Union.
Though Nevada ranks sixth
In size with Ita area of 110.000
squnro miles, lt has tho smallest
population of any of the 48
states. Between 1800 and 1000
there was a marked decrease In
the population duo to the falling
off of mining Industry.

POSTMASTER GENERAL HAYS
Scud* Message to tho Hoya and Girls
of United States.
Washington, I). C., Noif. 2 2, 1921. !
To tho Boys and Girls of the United
States: ?
christmas is almost here!
Your great Post?nico Department
has a big Joh ahead and needs your
help.
Think what it moans to he Santa
Claus to our ono hundred millions of !
people and to deliver Christmas par
cels to every family in this great
country within tho ?hort space of a .
fow days and withput disappoint
ment.
lt can he done, and wo'ro fcoing to
do it if wo may have your help. I
want to enlist the active assistance
of every hoy and girl in the schools
of our country in getting parcel*
malled THIS WEEK to relieve the
rush that comes directly before
Christinas.
Will you go home to-day and take
this message to your parents and
friends:
"Our postmaster lias asked us to
mail our Christmas parcels T111S j
WEEK, for, unless we do. Uncle Sam
may have a load so heavy the last
few days before Christmas thai ho
won't bo able lo deliver all the pres
ents by Christmas eve."
The parcels must he well wrapped !
and tied and addressed plainly In or
der tli:it they may arrive ill good con
dition with their Christmas)' appear
ance unspoiled. You can put. on your
package "Go not open until Christ
mas."
And there must he a number cn
your bouse and a mail receptacle,
loo. for. if there isn't. Santa Claus's
messenger, your loiter carrier, may
not he able to lind the house where j
the present belongs.
There are some other things, too. 1
in which you can assisi in improving j
the mail service and in saving our i
great, government millions of dollars
a year that is now wasted because
of our carelessness-yours and mine.
Every day that you drop a letter
in tho mail box 40,000,000 other let
ters are already pushing and Jam
ming through the postal machinery.
Ono letter a day for each family of
five persons in the United States is
given to Uncle Sam to deliver.
When you send a parcel to the
postofhee for malling any day there
are about 8,000,000 other parcels
ahead of yours passing through the
postal hopper. Tibs ls in ordinary
days; al Christmas time it is multi
plied many times.
One family in about every ten puts
a badly addressed letter in tho mail
every day. This mixes up over 2.
000,000 half addressed letters with
the 20,000.000 fully addressed let
ters. That means that the fully ad
dressed let'ors must wait on the slow
moving poorly addressed letters just
like the larger boys and girls i.to
delayed by a hunch of "bad kids"
tagging along.
You boys and girls can help the
postal service and save your father
some money, because he has to help
pay the cost of searching addresses
on loiters and pracels sent out by
this one careless and thoughtless
family in every ten.
First lind out if your family is the
careless one, then bear in mind that
your letters must bo handled by the
skilled mail distributors standing in
postolllces and on swaying postal
ears of a-inile-a-mlnute trains, often
under poor light.
Tho address on every letter, card,
or package must bo correct, complete
and legible, including the house num
ber and name of street, and .he
"From" address should be in the up
per left-hand corner so that the mail
will he returned to you in caso it is
not delivered. Do not abbreviate the
names of States, because so many of
them look alike when they are ab
breviated.
But the proper amount of postage
on your letters and wrap the parcels
carefully. Avoid fancy writing,which
causes postofflce clerks and letter

carriers to stop and study, and thus
lose time. Make the address plain
and easily read, and always use pen '
and ink or typewriter and light-col
ored envelopes, so as to save the
eyos of the postofllce dorks. Do not
uso envelopes ot unusual size. The
little ones that aro so frequently used
for cards and notes at Christmas and
other holiday times causo an untold
amount of trou hie and labor? as thoy

dency to slip out of a package, these
small onvelopos are moro likely to
ho overlooked or lost.
Mall your letters and packages
early in tho day, hocauso this avoids
overloading ujud delaying mail at
the end of tho day.
Your local postmaster and your
teachers w'll tell you more about the
postal service.
Do these things, and you will win
the grateful appreciation of the peo

ARMY OF YOUNGSTERS
MARCHING RAPIDLY ON
With Reopening Of School, Boys And
Girl? Renew Their Effort? To
Win Commissions.
Left! Right! Left! Right! Left! j
Forward-March!
With the reopening of schools, Uncle ,
Sam's Army of Savers has stepped out
to make new records for Itself, and .
to enlist boys and girls who have not j
yet become members In the ranks ot
this wide-awake organization. Will lt
keep up tho snappy pace with which it
started laBt April? Many members
have marched right on through vaca
tion, and their example, together with
that of aa inspiring beginning, Indi
cate that the motto will be "let's go!''
A feature of tho school savings move
ment developed exclusively In this
federal reserve dlstrlot, Uncle Sam's
Army of Savers was organized last
spring, with youthful "ofllcors" and
"private?" whose insignia buttons and
"commissions" were awarded by the
Savings Division of tho Treasury De
partment. Membership In the Army j
may bo obtained by Investment In one
25-cent Thrift Stamp, and future pro- j
motions In rank depend upon the num
ber of additional stamps bought. Thc ?
fact that before last session closed
twenty-five General's "commissions"
and buttons woro awarded In this dis
trict to children owning 20 War Sav
ings Stamps each, Indicates the rapid
ity with which promotions are being
earned, as this is thc highest rank
Summer banks are being opened, and
summer savings counted with an eye
to the coveted promotion they will
bring-tho Lieutenant's or lt may bo
the Captain's button that will be
awarded la recognition of patriotic
service rendered through the purchase
of savings securities. These banks
were distributed at the beginning of
vacation to members of Uncle Sam's
Army of Savers desiring to save money
during the summer In ordor to win
promotions.
The activities of Uncle Sam's Army
of Savers will be promoted to round
out the thrift Instruction to bu given
In the majority of schools In the dis
trict. Roys and girls will learn the
principles and theory of thrift In their
classrooms, aod will then be encour
aged to put what they have learned
Into practice by earning money and
Investing the right proportion of lt in
safe, Interest-bearing government se
curities.
MONEY GROWS FAST AT
COMPOUNDED INTEREST
Now Possible For Everyone To Invest
In Securities Guaranteed By The
Treasury Department.
Government Savings Securities, which
may be had at nearly all post offices,
were issued to encourage regular sav
ing and wise Investment. Many mil
lions of dollars In tho United States
have been put into those securities,
and, as a result, tens of thousands of
people have the satisfaction of know
ing how steadily monoy Increases at 4
per cont lntorest compounded quar
terly.
The fundamental characteristics of
Government Savings Securities are
that they are safe beyond question,
easily convertible into money, and not
subject to market fluctuations. Such
merits glvo these securities a distinc
tive investment value.
The securities are safe because they
?re guaranteed by the United States
Treasury Department. Thoy are eastly
convertible into cash, because they
may be redeemed at local post offices
or from th? Treasury Department at
Washington, and they are not subject
to market fluctuations becauso the
Treasury guarantees the price, which
Increases by a Axed amount-in the
case of the intorest-bearlng securities
-every month.
There ar? three kinds of Govern
ment Savings Securities: The 25-cont
Thrift Stamp and the $1 Treasury Sav
ing Stamp-neither bearing Interest;
the Interesting-bearing War Saving
Stamp, and tho Interest-bearing $25,
1100 and $1,000 Treasury Savings Cer
tificates.
The 25-cent Thrift Stamps and thc
$1 Treasury Savings Stamps are ls
juett to help people savo enough to
buy War Savings Stamps, and those
latter, when enough have been bought,
may be converted into registered
Treasury Savings Certif?calos.
The $5 War Savings Stamps coat
from $4.12 in Jam -xry to $4.2.1 In Do
cember, Increasing in value one cent
each month. The valuo of tho $25
Treasury Savings Certificate Increase?
five oents a month, that of the $100
certificates twenty cents a month, that
of the $l.ono certificates $2 a month.
