We have not heard form you for a long time Plain Jane; so many things hap pening that we need your “plain talk” to straighten things out. Higher-ups arc predicting a political revolution, The labor and capital question has our present administration in a state of frenzy, but what we need you for, Plain Jane is in connection with a “lo cal upheaval” that may reach beyond control without your mediation and “plain” advice. Quite recently, the “Mason Valley News” (in a very commendable way) denounced the gossiping and sland erous tongue.” It was all to the good. Next comes our “Times" with an article signed “A Member.” and relating some of the tribulations of a social gathering, alluding to the “curt manners” of some present, who were alsi fellow members of other organiza tions." The writer finished very nicely on the topic. “Seek More Har mony," a most worthy motto. Then conics the next issue of the “News” with the same article, signed “E. P" but with Several additional lines, referring to the “yellow streak of selfishness.” These last lines seem to qualify “A Members” article. ' Now then. Plain Jane, the “News," “A Member,” and “E. P." arc all on the same track and we wish to hear from you, through your medium, “The Times.” We cannot imagine you a “giggling flapper,” nor do we think of you as a “blue-spectacled old maid." We have seen wisdom in your plainness, so tell us. Plain Jane, in your “plain” way. if we arc not right in thinking that—Envy leads to slander, malice and self debasement. That—foolish ' mgn-orow ami iow brow” notions with its immaginary distinguishng fine are an ubsudrity. That—Clothes never did make hu man beings, ladies and gentleman, and that ladies and gentlemen do not use the expressions “high brow” and “low brow.” That—“E.P’s" surprises at the "curt manners,, etc., especially as they were “fellow members of other organiza tions” is more than a surprise to me. Envy and malice arc known to ex ist in all organizations, whether church, fraternal, literary or social, and are the root and brand of much evil. These are the factors, Plain Jane, that have created the discussion and condemnation, in my opinion; but be ing as you will readily see, unqualified for the reason of bias, and rather set in my ways, I appeal to you, not only for judgement, pro and con, but for your mediation, vour advice and any remedy you may suggest. T thank you. Plain Jane, for your “talks” of the past and will await your decision in this. O TEMPORA. O MORES. Senator and Mrs. Matt Penrose and daughter.

VV. Huskey, Democratic congressional as pirant, in ease he is nominated and elected. The idea of this big publicity stunt for the Silver State came to Senator Huskey as he was making a 1500 mile tour, just completed, in which he visited every county and nearly all the voting precincts of the common wealth. “Of course." said Senator Huskey today, ‘‘nothing better could be found than prime roast beef from the Ne vada range, preceded by trout from the Truckee river, from Pyramid lake or from several of our lakes and streams. Then then there are Lyon County potatoes, such as are des tined to make te Mason and Walker valleys famous, hearts-'o-gold cauta- j loupes from Fallon, and many other ! fruits, from Klko county apples to j Clark County figs. What a beauti- j fttl Volstead drink could be made from the glowing juice of the pomegranates I saw growing in the Mio Virgin valley. “Everything that would grace the! table, from soup to nuts, would come! from Nevada, and what a spread it 1 would be. And, if we I'ke.u. we could have it served on dishes made from : kaolin, with silver from Nevada mines. I and gold nuggets for favors.’’ In event of his nominatin. which he] considers will be equivalent to election. Senator Huskey says he will be open to suggestions and help from chambers of commerce and commercial clubs, as well as from the people of the state in general, as to ways and means of bringing Neada’s products md re sources to the attention fo the nation's lawmakers. DEMOCRATS AND COMMON SENSE Editor Times: I would like to say one thing to my friends in Lyon County and in the State of Nevada. It pleases me very much to see the Democratic Party endowed with plain, common sense in choosing our greatest representative, except President, in the ^gift of the people. The past services of Senator Key Pittman certainly deserve recognition by his re-election. There is no battle royal as our op ponents have. Not only the State of Nevada but every state in this Union, with an ounce of silver production, is patiently awaiting our verdict on Nov. 7th next. WILLIAM PATRICK MALONEY Yerington, Nevada.

DAVID MAKES REPORT The past week has shown a con siderable improvement in the highways of the state, owing to rains in some sections and the completion of un finished highway stretches, cutting down detours, according to the weekly bulletin of W. M. Davis, secretary of the Nevada Highway Association. This bulletin gives a comprehensive report on road conditions over the state and is of great value to tourists and parties who intend to make au tomobile trips. The report is as fol lows: "That the highway work so far completed in Nevada is giving excel lent satisfaction is attested to by the reports received from tourists who have crossed the state. A trip across .Nevada has heretofore been regarded as a serious undertaking, never to be repeated, but there are many now registering who arc making the trip both ways, notwithstanding the efforts made to divert them to Soutern Cal ifornia. preferring some rough roads roter than heat encountered on south ern trips. Detours continue to give cause for complaint, but sonic of these are being shortened daily, so there is not so much complaint on this score. J'"or the first time in the his tory of motoring the roads of Nevada are going to lie able to carry the traffic without interruption during the entire season. The observant driver recognizes the fact1 that detours are necessary to any building program. anti ^ocs on ‘Ins way uncomplaining, feeling that he will realize , in the : future on the discomports of today, and that in a short time ood roads will take te place of tc nonnescript trails which have served to carry te traffic of bygone days, but will do no longer for the auto whiih w do ,no longer for the auto whiih has served to break down all bassiers be tween cities, towns, ounties and states, making all itizens of one great uoimtry. marked only by the auto regulations wliihh diger in each state. Ninety per cent of those who travel over file Rcno-Carsou highway take oecasion to remark about the excel lence ot this paved road, ranking it any piece of highway construction in the country—a tribute to those who had any part in its construction.

ML MEN SEE BI6 CLOUDBURST Waterspouts and cloudbursts have been prevalent in all sections of the county durng the past few days, but so far no appreciable damage has resulted. In the upper East Walker section, just above, the Rosasehi ranch, VV ater Commissioner Beemer and his assist ant Donald Warren had the unique experience of seeing a cloudburst rush into the river. Their attention was first attracted by an unusual noise or rumble, and a few minutes later they saw a great mass of water, earth and holders came roaring down the moun tainside. When the waterspout struck the river the mud and boulders com pletely dammed the channel in a few minutes, causing the river to find a new course.
