Reading notices.10c a line I Uncle Sam’s Beehives j The concluding paragraplvof a bulletin issued by the Bureau of information concerning the "Purpose and Scope of the work of the Division of Advertising reads; "Due to the generous donations of patriotic publishers and advertisers a fund of one and one-half mil lion dollars' worth of advertising space has been made available for use by the government through the Division of Advertising dur ing 1918. It is the generous and patriotic support of these publishers which has made it possible to accomplish the record tabulated a bove." (The record referred to was the seven big campaigns which were successfully carried through during the first half of 1918.) In return for this "generous and patriotic support” the publishers have received such treatment as makes them wonder whose sins they are being punished for. They have been put to the great ex pense and labor of the zone system of postal rates te a time when they are short-handed; they have been left to the tender mercies of the paper profiteers; they have had their selling and agency ar rangements all disrupted without warning, and their exchange lists cut off. Our opinion is that a little consideration would have done us more good than so much praise. We are doing our duty as we see it J?ut we'd do better if some of the blunderers higher up were fired. T" -- The citizen owes himself and his state a duty at this time that a failure to perform ought to mean disgrace The duty is at the same time a privilege, and that is the exercise of the right of franchise. I* is an important matter that each man and woman should select the men who represent them, who make their laws, who judge them and their children, and who enforce these laws. Each law enacted by the Nevada legislature at the next session will be made in the name of the voters; “The People of the State of Nevada, represented in Senate and Assembly, do enact as follows." Are you doing your share of the work if you fail to vote at both elections? You are re sponsible, are you doing anything to lighten the reproach that may come? This is not a safe time to “let George tk> it " Register now and go to the polls prepared to vote as you think right. The law pro vides only this way and as many as fail in this respect are clogging the wheels of democracy. A democratic government is a govern ment by the people, it may be good, bad or indifferent, but it must be by the people or it is not democratic. Your.vote is needed. The action taken by water users along the W alker River to save the potatoes and grain of the valleys is most commendable. It is the first time in the jiistory of this section that all rose to the occasion and for t'liat reason is worthy of note. It augurs well for storage in the future which is even more worthy of note. Once water is stored for these valleys the future of Lyon County is assured. "United we stand, divided we fall" is just as true here today as it was in colonv davs on the other coast. i President Carleton of the W estern Union Telegraph Contpanv shows his faith in his repeated statements that his employees do not want to organize by making as one of his chief objections to gov ernment control the assertion that after a few years of such regu lation the company, on receiving its property hack, vvoflld find its servants unionized. — New York W orld.

Many just complaints have been reg istered by the tax-payers because the tax list is not itemized, as was done for many years, but in justice to the County Commissioners and myself will state that the Legislature of 1915 reduced the amount that can be paid for such printing so as to make it ah solutely prohibitive for that kind of ; a tax list. 1 will be pleased to give my person- | al attention to any information or bus iness any tax paver wishes presented to the State Board of Equalization 1 ^hat will be in session in the City of j Carson beginning the third Monday in , August but not later than September j 30th.

Tlie simplest wav of using honev i- to serve it like jam or syrup with bread, breakfast cereals boiled rice, pancakes, and other mild flavored foods. As ordinarily used on bread, an ounce of honey spreads as many slices as an ounce of jam. When it is to be. used in the place of sirup some people dilute it by mixing it with hot water, which ha- the effect of making it not oply te*s sweet but also easier to pour. Honey, or a mixture of honey and sugar sirup can be atisfactorily used for sweetening lemonade and other fruit drinks. Sirup of any kind is more convenient for this purpose than undissolved sugar, and when charged water is to be added it has a further advantage, since it has le . tendency to expel the ga* It ir, the custom of many housewives to keep a sirup for this purpose, particularly in hot vveath er, and,variety can be -eci(red_by oc casionally using honey. The fact that honey consists prin cipally of sugar and water and is slightly acid suggest* that it is a suit able substitute for nrola-ses in till forms of breads, muffins, and cakes, and makes a more delicately flavored product. It contains less "acid than molasse-. however, and so require* less soda when it is substituted for molasses in recipes w hich do not in elude sour initk or other acid. POLITICAL ANNOUNCEMENTS E. E.
