The quality of mercy has never been strained there. All have been given careful and consci entious attention. The practical value of such an institution to this community can hardly be estimated.

Three carloads of coal conaigMd- to the Millersburg Military Insti tute, were sidetracked near the t tion at Millersburg, forT unloadimc Efforts to secure negro laborers and vehicles to unload the coaP prove unavailing, despite the lure of finan cial considerations. Learning of the desperatesltuatiom and in view of the fact thaUthe coal was badly needed for heating the in stitution, nineteen husky cadets dis carded immaculate uniforms, donned old clothes, and with gloyes asd shovels secured from various sourc es, made a concerted attack on ths coal cars. Going over "the top ' in most approved military fashion, they unloaded the preciqius black dia monds into waiting wagons. Ac companied by a squad of cadet-coal heavers the wagons, as fast as loaded, were driven to the M. 1VL I. where they were unloaded into ths cellars. This was kept up .until the three cars of coal had been salefly de posited in the cellars. When the job was completed the cadets washed up, donned their uni forms and went about their rou tine school work just as if shovel ing coal had been a regular part of the day's work. o ATTENTION, CONSUMERS OF PAMS GAS & ELECTRIC CO.
