West Virginian Flag Coupons The sudden huge demand for American flags has had the effect of completely exhausting the supply all over the country and in spite of their very best endeavors the manufacturers have been unable to keep pace with the demand. This of necessary has thrown into confusion all the plans of the people who have been distributing flags. When the price of flags went up like a skyrocket The West Virginian made an arrangement whereby it was enabled to dis tribute many hundreds of them at a very small cost to the public. But in the past few weeks it has been very difficult to get these flags. For a time we took orders for them on the strength of statements by the manufacturers that another supply would be in our hands within a few days, but because of frequent disappointments we have decided to withdraw the coupons until the new invoice of flags arrives. Orders that are already in hand will be filled as soon as the flags get here. This may be tomorrow and it may not be for a week. The reappearance of the coupon in the paper will be- notice that they have arriveu. i - . Mm icorA g MMBB ?q??? Iwt 1 y " v'' -7 J *"* l"SC.
