MUCH OF OUR COAL
!js Car Shortage For This District
Continues to Increase
Rapidly.
The compiled figures of coal loaded
. by the 82 mines reporting to the office
[L' of the Central West Virginia Coal
| Operators association office In this
' ytty for the third week in September
are very interesting, and, in the opinft
ion of Secretary D. R. J.awson, unK
doubtedly discloses one of the main
reasons for tho Bcrious shortage of
It bituminous coal among industrial
K- plants. Out of a total of 2,482 cars
b loaded during tho week the Baltimore
e & Ohio Railroad took 1,174 of them.
E or 47 per cent of the entire tonnage'
! of these 92 mines, for their own use.
t, Continuing Mr. Lawson says: Even
the foregoing statement does not tell
E all to the unltlated; before we arrive
at the proper number of cars ap
plied on commercial business we must
I deduct the number of arbitrary and
E-. assigned cars, such as cars placed for
K'"loading fuel for railroads other than
the Baltimore & Ohio and cars as ]
signed for loading to Lake Erie ports.
These amount to B81 ears, which
leaves but 727 cars for these 92 mines
for commercial loading for one week
as compared to 1,102 cars for 90 mines
the previous week.

mines total 199.750 tons; the 2.4S2
cars shipped contained 124.100 tons,
which leaves us short of our capacity
by 75.000 tons as compared to 94,910
tons the previous week. Of the total
amount not shipped 85 per cunt, or
04,402 tons, is due to the fact that
the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad failed
to furnish sufficient cars at the mines
to run them to capacity; in cars this
amounts to 213 daily. ,
"Our shortage, referred to in last
week's statemnt as 2,000 cars, now
amounts to approximately 2,400 cars,
due to the fact that we received such
a small percentage of commercial
cars during the third week in September.
We have again laid this matter
before the Inter-State Commerce
Commission, calling their attention
to the gravity of the situation in this
region, and we hope they will view
it in the light we do and take immediate
action that will insure us our
just quota or cars."

IF CONSTIPATED
"CALIFORNIA SYRUP OF FIGS"
CAN'T HARM TENDER STOMACH
OR BOWELS.
A laxative today saves a sick child
tomorrow. Children simply will not
take the time front play to empty their
bowels, which become clogged up with
waste, liver gets sluggish; stomach
sour.
Look at the tongue, mother! If
coated, or your child Is listless, cross,
feverish, breath bad, restless, doesn't |
eat heartily, full of cold or has sore |
throat or any other children'^ ft.il- j
rnent. give a teaspoonful of "Califor-j
nia Syrup of Figs," then don't worry,;
because it is perfectly harmless, and
in a few hours all this constipation
poison, sour bile and fermenting
waste will gently move out of the
bowels, and you have a well, playful
child again. A thorough "inside cleansing''
is oftimes all that is necessary.
It should be the first treatment given
In any sickness.
Beware of counterfeit fig syrups.
Ask your druggist for a 50-cent bottle
of "California Syrup of Figs," which
has full directions for babies, children
of all ages and for grown-ups
plainly printed on the bottle. Look
carefully and see that It is made by
the "California Vic Kvrun ComDanv."

Catarrhal Deafness ,
May Be Overcome
A Simple, Safe and Rellabla Way That
Call* for No Ugly trumpet*, phonaa
or Other Instruments.
To be deaf Is very annoying and emharassing.
Teople who are deaf ar*
generally mighty sensitive on thla subject.
And yet many deaf folks cany
around instruments that call attention
to their infirmity. Therefore people
who are hard of hearing, who suffer
from head nolsee. or who are actually
deaf from catarhal trouble, will be glad
to know of a simple roclpe that can be
easily made up at home for a few centa
cost that Is really qulto efficient In relieving
the disagreeable deafnesi and
head nolseB caused by catarrh.
From any drug store get one ounce
of l'armlnt (double strength) about
90c worth. Take this home and put It
to a simple syrup made pint of
hot water and four ounces 'of oralnaty
granulated sugar. Take a teaspoonful
four times a day.
This treatment should by tonic notion
reduce the inflammation in the /
middle ear that a catarrhal condition
would be likely to cause and with the
Inflammation gone the distressing head
noises, headaches, cloudy thinking and
that dull feeling in the ears should
gradually disappear. Anyone who tutfers
from catarrh, catarrhal deafnesa
or head nolsea should give Parmint a
trial. It is pleasant to take and is
yulte inexpensive.
