BIG COKE PlIllElf
WORKS AT IB
I With it One Man Can l)o the
Work of Twenty-Five .
Laborers.
The only coke pulling machine
owned by the Consolidation Coal company
and perhaps the firBt in the state,
is now in operation at Mine No. 63 at
Monongah. The machine is electrically
driven and entirely in the hands o?
one man. The mechanism o( the machine
is so arranged that tho coke is
not only pulled from the ovens but loaded
in cars ready for shipment.
The machine can pull and load 4U
coke ovens per day, which is equiva*
lent to the work of 25 strong men.
With the present shortage of labor, the
machine will prove of much value to
the coal company and if it proves a
success, as is expected, the company
will in all probabilities add them to
their coke oven plants throughout this
section of the state.
The coke Is pulled from the ovens
with one large puller and is then raised
|; - into the air by means of a conveyor
and dropped into the cars it is easily
managed by one man.
Many people Interested in the production
of coke have been to Monongah
during the past several days to
see the machine In operation.
CHILD PLAGUE SPREADING.
PARKERSBURG, Oct. 1?A case
of infantile paralysis is reported from
St.: Belleville, Wood county, making the

recent outbreak. Ther tvas a case
near Belleville a few weeks ago, also.
Six cases-of smallpox were reported
to the county health officer, si in
one household where there was pre*
viously a case.
LITTLE BLOCK OF \\
Bt By BIDDY BYE.
(Household Expert of the West Vlrglnian.)
There are about 20,000,000 homes In
the United States and about 10,090.000
women who stoop awkwardly and un.
comfortably over low kitchen tables,
Bpi ' stoves and sinks, dozens of times a day.
g&i stooping means lowering ana raisEK
. tag the body; it brings a strain upon
the muscles; It Increases the labor of
r: the kitchen; it means a great loss of
K' human energy,
s And huuian energy is today the most
valuable thing it the world, for it will
win the war in the end. Conserving it.
therefore, even in the kitchen, is every
|g woman's duty.
I Very little can be done to improve
I the kitchen sink etctpt to ael the dishpan
upon a rack or box, if tlio sink Is
too low; or to stand upon a stool or

up. To keep the legs of the table

GREATLY DELAYED
Lincoln District Contractor!
Has Not Been Able to
Get Material.
Just at present the construction ot
l he Lincoln district road betweon Mill
Kali and Helen's run Is not progressing
very rapidly. The contractor Sam
I'olino of this city reports unusual delays
in getting material on the grounds
for the work. Some of the sand and
other materials have been on the road
for over two months. At present the
contractor is held up because of Inability
to aet sand, eravel and brick.
with very little prospects of getting
the material within the near future.
The contract lor the road covers a
job of about SGS.OOO. The road joins
the present concrete road at Mill Fait,
out Camden avenue. Monongah and
thence at Helen's run, about three
miles north of Worthington. The road
v ill e 14 feet wide, made of brick with
a concrete base.
One thousand feet of the road has
been completed, coming almost to the
top of the Shaver hill. With the exception
of a few workmen, all the employes
of the contracting company
have been laid off awaiting the arrival
c: additional material. At present the
:nnd is closed and all traffic between
Fairmont and the mining towns along
the West Fork river must go by way of
Watson.
if the material was at hand, it is the
belief of the contractor that the road
cculd be completed and ready for use
within thirty days.

SHERIFF SIM"
WARJjN BQOZE
East Side Man Caught in
Saturday Night's Dragnet
Glover Determined.
Stringent orders were given by A
M. Glover, sheriff of Marion county,
to his deputies Saturday night to be]
on the lookout for bootleggers, who,
it was calculated, would arrive "on the
early Sunday morning train from
Point Marlon, Pa.
One of the two men arrested was
Frank Arnold, a painter, who resides
on the East Side, and who is quite
well known about the city, lie was
apprehended as he emerged from the
H:H0 train from Point Marlon, Pa., on
Saturay night, lie had the bottles ot
liquor wrapped up in a piece ot paper
and was spotted by an automobiiist,
it is claimed, while he was walking
down the road. A charge of carrying
whiskey into a dry state contrary to
the "bone dry" laws will be prefered
against him.
Eighteen quarts of whiskey and a
prisoner was secured later. The man
who Is under arrest is Meigs McCray,
an American, who hails from Weston.
He carried in his pocket a bank pass
book ot an Ohio institution and under
bis arms ba bad a slip nf nlntbna 1
Tho suit McCray claimed belonged
to liis brother, but the officers found
the name of Harry Ross 011 a piece
of cloth which was sewed in one of
the sleeves. When this discrepcncy
was pointed out to McCray I10 endeavored
to throw the suit away, but it
was picked up and taken to tho sheriff's
office. Nine quarts and one pint
of whiskey were secreted in his suit
case and the officers conllscated it
at once. McCray has been committed
to Jail awaiting the formal bringing
of charges against hlra for violating
the Prohibition law in regard to
"bone dry" districts.
Another suit case was found on the
same train, which contained nine
quarts of old rye, but no owner could
be located. This suit case was confiscated
and taken to the sheriff's office
with that which McCray had in
his possession.
In one instance a Fairmonter visited
Point Marion on Saturday and it is
claimed, that he had some whiskey
in his suit case. When tho station
was reached he spotted the deputy
sheriffs on the Job and scenting trouble
he left the suit case in the train.
Sheriff Glover is putting forth a
strenuous errori 10 break up tlie
practice and indications are that the
campaign against this unlawlcssuess
will prevail until it Is broken up.
Charities Office
Opened This Morning
The headquarters ot the local Asso-!
elated Charities opened for the season j
this mortlng and a number of calls j
were l eeched for supplies and cloth-1
Ing. Miss Margaret McKlnncy, secre-j
tary of tie organization, was at her
desk an ctook care of the calls. The
chilly wiither of today made the
needy of the city feel that winter was
ccniing o> and that they needed to bo
supplied Kvlth clothing. The hours
for holdi ig the rooms open will be
from ill i eleven o'clock and from 2
to 4 o'cli k on week days and Satururdays

[ Chicago is to have a "lire prevention |
ilay" on October i), commemorating j
the anniversary ot the kicking over 01
the lamp by Mrs. O'Leary's cow.
The Chicago Tribune haR a comedy
column every week day and one bright |
bit ot fun poked at country papers recently
was a clipping from a West |
Virginia paper which had correspondence
from Buckhannon roasting young
(oiks who use the Heavner cemetery
in that town lor parties and as a "rendezvous
lor Immortality and vandalism."
A new typo of machine gun carriage,
invented by two Marine Corps officers,
is used daily in the drills of the seasoldiers
at Quantlco, Va., training
camp. It is light enough to be easily
drawn over all obstacles by two men,
and is said to be the most practicable
of its kind in use. The Marines are
proud of this lnvent<on. their first con- \
irihutiou to modern war equipment.
Duplicates of all the latest apparatus |
used behind the lines in France is also !
a part of the Marine equipment here. :
They have every variety of trench, !
dug-out, wire entanglement and gun j
emplacement. Even the celebrated
"camouflage" is here. Observers Bay ;
that the territory hereabouts is almost ,
Identical with that of Flanders.
Reports just compiled for the Railroads'
War Board indicate that the
traveling public in general and the
shippers 111 particular are giving the
linest kind of co-operation 10 the railroads
in the handling of the increased
truftic that the war has produced
What this co-opera.ten means may be
Cleaned from these facts:
Since May 1st, the railroads, aided
by the loyalty and understanding of
the public, have oeec able to reduce
their passenger service bv approximately
25,00o,o00 mt.es. This haB released
thousands of train crews and
locomotives for use m the treight service
and cleared thousands of milcs of
track, thereby facilitating the movement
of coal, food D-oducls and supflies
needed by the government.
In addition to the foregoing saving
of equipment and traeuage, the shippers,
big and small, have rallied so
splendidly to the slogan "Make one car
do the work of two," that a saving of
close to half a million freight cars has
beeq accomplished. This saving of
freight cars has enabled the railroads
to move approximately 25 per cent,
more freight since war was declared
than during the same period last year.
Intensive leading and a general increase
In the size of the "trade units"
used by the various industries has rendered
possible the saving of carapace.
Cotton, for instance, which was formerly
moved in uite o' fifty bales, now
moved only in units cf 63 and 75. As
there are 18,000.000 bales to be moved
by rail each season, tbo increase in the
trade unit in this or e commodity alone
has produced r, sov'.nf of anywhere
from 83.000 to 125,000 cars.
Sugar, ou which the carload minimum
fro mth<? Soutn was formerly only
21,000 pounds per car, now moves oniv
on a 00,000 carload minimum.
The producers of manufactured food
products, especially the canners, have
also come to a realisation of the value
of Intensive loading and are now loadBell-ans
