Admission Day and Lincoln Highway. Friday being Admission Day, and also the date for the dedication of the Lincoln Highway, all public offices were closed and the business houses suspended from 1 to 2 p. m.

There is a demand for light and power in many sections of the valley outside of Fallon. It therefore appears that a wise course would be for the people to look very carefully into the matter at this time.
