COAL SITUATION IN POPLAR REMAINS ABOUT SAME Poplar Standard: From infor mation that can be gathered from the coal dealers and from A. E. Kelsey, who was appoint ed coal administrator at the meeting of the citizens last Sat urday night, there is very jittle change in the coal situation so far as this city is concerned. The business houses and pri vate residences are not su'.fer ing as yet but in most instances the supply is limited. Mr. Kel sey was notified yestei day that there would be a car of coal in noon and there are one or two on the local freight this after other cars in sight. The Fair view mines, where Scott-Smith obtains his coal, have finally shut down but Mr. Smith is try ing to get coal from another source. Mr. Kelsey has made arrangements to get several cars from the Culbertson mines, the first of which may be in to day. The f? r' crs on the south side are mining some coal and will get out more if the weather is favorable, so the situation here is much the same as it was when the big strike was first declared. At the business meeting of the citizens last Saturday night, A. E. Kelsey was appointed fuel administrator and it was agreed that he should have entire sup ervision over all distribution of coal both from the local mines and of any shipped in. As stated,, there is no suffer ing at present and everyoiie is provided for, but a sudden cold snap or a further curtailnent of the supply might cause a serious shortage and in that case it would be advisable to have some one man responsible for the distribution here and it was the consensus of the meet ing that Mr. Kelsey was the man for the place. Anyone wanting coal of any kind wheth er from the outside mines or the local mines are asked to place their orders through Mr. Kel sey. Producjrs& News Wants Ads bring results.

Plentywood Bakery O IfO McCABE RE TURNS FROM FRANCE Froid Tribune: After nearly twelve months service- with the American Expeditionary Forces overseas, Otho McCabe, son of Mr. and Mrs. O. B. McCabe of his place, received his honor able discharge at Camp Dodge, Iowa, and returned home last Otho enlisted at Spokane in Friday. July, 1918, and from there was sent to the training camps in Texas. On November 12th, the day after the armistice was signed he sailed for Brest, France, where he was stationed most of the time, serving in the Motor Transfer Corps as a me chanic. Before returning home he was granted the privilege of viewing many cf the most im portant battle fields of the late war, and could also have had an opportunity to visit Germany before his return, but home called him, so he decided to get back to the states at once. Perhaps one of the reasons why politicians shy at giving the returned service men a bon us is the probability that all who return to the farm would squander $16 of it on a Nonpar tisan membership.
