Well Worth Seeing is T. Harper Ranch. It’s a bit off the highway and about the only indication that there is anything like a ranch off a quarter mile to the north is a row of tall trees that cuts the view. But it is well worth anybody’s time and effort to make the turn, about five miles west of Fallon on the Lincoln Highway, and drive over to the Tom Harper chicken farm, where upwards of 3,000 white leghorns are thriving and producing for Mr. and Mrs. Harper. An instant impression one gets on driving into the farmyard is that there is a place for everything and that everything is in its place.

War News Sends Housewives to the Stores for Flour. What amounted to an almost hysterical buying epidemic seized Fallon housewives along with other communities of the nation following a broadcast which hinted at early rises in the prices of staples as a result of the European war situation, and the result of the buying spree was that local stores were run ragged trying to fill orders for commodities mentioned particularly sugar and Fallon.

Local Business. A newspaper is read because it contains information and comment which is new to the public. Research has shown that the reader, in his search for new information, does not make a great distention between advertising and other news content. If the information is timely and if it touches the interests of the reader it will be noted.
