' Coal Situation MuckIni^i?v^
Washington, Aug.' 9.|~4 i^t^^?*
1 ' picture or-the nationarcoal situation
is painted by the geological survey
in figures made public today con
cerning coal production ?nd trans
portation for the wcejc of July 31.
Despite a decrease of 1,553,000
tons compared with the previous
week due to the strikes of mine la
borers in Illinois and Indiana the
end of July found bituminous pro
duction since the beginning of the
year to have reached 302,737,000
tons, an increase of 44,500,000 tons
over the amount mined un to July
31, last year.
Anthracite production also com
pares favorably with 1919, having
reached 50,575,000 tons on July 31,
as compared with 47,307,009 tons at
the end of July of 1919.
Reports to the survey as to car
supply indicate at the end of July
no widespread improvement, a
change for the better being noteu in
some districts while the losses in
production due to insufficient trans
portation grew more acute in
Tidewater shipments during the
week of July 31 established what
the survey believes to be a new
record for coal handled over tide
water piers in a single week. The
total tidewater dumpings amounted
to 27,461 cars, an increase of 1,771
cars over the previous week. A to
tal of 104,826 cars for the month of

WORLD PROHIBITION FEDERA
On Saturday, July 31, 1920 an In
ternational Conference under the
auspices of the World Prohibition
Federation and the International Or
der of Good Templar was held in the
Parliament Hall, Christianborg Cas
tle, Copenhagen, Denmark.
Mr. Guy Hayler of London, Pres
ident, in opening xhc proceedings,
congratulated the World Prohibition
Federation and the Good Templars
upon the first af?erwar international
gathering in Denmark, and remark
ed that, under the Danish flag, Pro
hibition is flourishing in Iceland,
Greenland and the Faros Islands.,
The Prohibition law in Iceland rp
I received the royal assent of King
J Christian X, who said, "Few, if any,
of piy actions since I became king
haye given me more satisfaction than
that of signing the prohibition law
for Iceland, and if the Parliament of
Denmark %vill pass a similar law, I
shall be more willing to approve."
Prohibitionists feel ' confident that
given the power of Local Veto, Den
mark will follow the good example of
"Bright indeed, is the world out
look for Prohibition. The movement
in every land has been given en
couragement by the magnificent vic
tory in the United States. In the Do
minions of Canada and Newfound
land, as well as in three of the prov
inces of Mexico, the liquor traffic has
been practically abolished by prov
incial laws. In many areas in New
Zealand, Australia and Ceylon, "No
license" has been secured by means
of local veto; while similar franchise
contests are taking place this year
in Scotland, Tasmania and in three
of the states of the Australian com
monwealth. Throughout India there
is a general feeling that under fur
ther measures of Home Rule, Prohi
bition will be almost universally,
adopted. News is to hand from South
America that the evils resulting from
alcoholism demand strong -and im
mediate attention. Regarding the
great continent of Africa, one notes
with thankfulness that the Covenant
of the League of Nations declares in
favor of the Prohibition of abuses,
such as the slaves trade, the arms
traffic and the liquor traffic.
Our work is to redeem the world
from the curse of alcoholism. If we
would do this we must move out of
our old parochialism, overstep the
bounds of nationalism and render
b?U?biif or" we* are to -secure theA
^f?&p^?tV;of* aft and ?raake- life
?yiwoman's high vocation.' We
do not render this service as citizens
of any one country-the appeal from
all quartei-s is too great. It is for
mankind we labor-for the good of
all. We must learn to forget how far
it may be to a cry of nedd, for only
I then shall we discover that life is a
I bigger thing than men .lave ever
dreamed it could be. The social or
der has suffered an upheaval and
out of the chaos of war and famine,
humanity is slowing emerging, yet its
emancipation is the price of every
usage and custom. For centuries
through sunshine and shade, through
war and peace, the forces of pro
gress have been making their sure
way, in the van of which have been
humanity's finest leaders. Among
such toilers in every land is counted
the Prohibitionists, who with unfail
ing persistency believed too much in
his cause to be denied the right to
pursue it. And today when we gather
to review the fruits of our labor and
to consider plans for the future, we
are inspired and feel doubly capable
in the remembrance, of what has
been accomplished and what the
possibilities of tomorrow will enable
us to do."

The really lovely women of the world are healthy
women. Abundant vitality is the basis of their
charm. It exert? a magnetism felt by everyone.
Knowing this, the wise woman keeps healthy by
close personal attention to certain daily observances,
the most important of which is regular elimination
of poisonous food waste.
Nujol is the scientific method o? treating conctipation.
It works on an entirely new principle.
Instead of forcing or irritating the system, Nujol
simply softens the food waste. This enables the
many tiny muscles in the walls of the intestines,
contracting and expanding in their normal way, to
squeeze the food waste along so that it \ Asses
naturally out of the system.
Nujol thus prevents constipation because it helps
Nature maintain easy, thorough bowel movements
at regular- intervals-the healthiest habit in the
Nujol is absolutely harmless arid pleasant to take.
Nujol is sold by all druggistsJn sealed bottles only, bearing
Nujol trade mark. Write Nujol Laboratories, Standard
