"Going up on High?” Better try th» low gear first. The human engine must have the right kind of fuel-food. Power to do things comes from food that is rich in musde huikling material, that is easily digested.

Ml To Edison Customers THE CONTINUANCE OF MILD WEATHER, AND THE BEGINNING OF EFFECTIVE CO-OPERA TION AMONG THE RAILROADS, HAVE BETTERED COAL SUPPLY CONDITIONS VERY MUCH. RAIL ROAD TRAFFIC IS STILL FAR FROM NORMAL, BUT UNLESS SOME ENTIRELY NEW TROUBLE ARISES WE WILL HAVE A SUFFICIENT SUPPLY OF COAL FROM NOW ON. We thank our customers, for the patience they have all given us and for the special offers of assistance received from so many of them. We assure them we did not publish our troubles until publicity was needed. Since November we have bought 129,093 tons of EXTRA coal, at prices from $1.50 to $4.50 per ton above our contract prices. The EXCESS cost-to us has aver aged $4,000 per day for the past ninety days. That was OUR own concern. When, with a double supply of coal on the rails, we could not get more than a half supply at our plants, it was time to give warning. It was the first time in thirty years.
