At this morning's session of the
State Medic;-. Society Dr. C. W. Waddell,
of Fairmont, gave an oration on
Recent Advances In Our Knowledge
of Syphilis and Its Treatment." Dr.
Waddell said that salvarsan is a very
taluable remedy for the dlscare. Detplte
the common impression that one
(ii.se or any quantity of doses is a sure
inre,jjoboJly JHLQ.w?.-,iww much, treatment
is necessary to produce a cure,
"he said. Dr. Waddell thcu made mention
ot the new method of diagnosis by
| serum tests. During the general discussion
it developed that the salvarsan
o: so-called 606 treatment of German
origin can be dispensed with. Since
Ihc great European war it is impossible
to receive tlie German preparation and
the French mixture has been substituted
with equally good results. This
was regarded as a very able address.
The second paper of the morning was
given by Dr. J. D. Willis, of Roanoko,
Va.. on tho ubject. "Diagnosis and
Treatment of Cerebro spinal Syphilis."
Dr. S. D. Hut field, of lacger, discussed

j WASHINGTON, U. C., Oct. 3.?Re- ;
lief tor uagun mines in West Virginia. 1
| as elsewhere, was promised by Fuel i j;
Administrator Garlield to a delegation
1 composed o? Senator Sutherland. Rep- i
| resentatives Cooper and Reed, and a
Messrs. Wells Goodyuoontz, B. Ran- J
dolph Bias and C. .\1 Gates, who were I
present as representatives of smaiJ r
j mine owners?wagon mines?of the r
state, especially in their section in and '
around the vicinity of Williamson, W. '(.
Ya. Congressmen Slump of Virginia, j
i and Langley, of Kentucky, were also .
' i:i the party, their districts being intiv ,
1 ested in the business in hand.
The conference lasted for a couple x
I of hours, and every man pre: cut had
: i is say. It was shown that the pros-1 h
lint rulincs had shul (Ioa.i thousands ; !
of little mines throughout the count!}.!
who couldn't operate 011 a S- basis ;v
strictly, let alone being denied the priv- j j
ilege of adding haulage costs with a j i
reasonable profit included and handi-i*
capped by illiberal terms as to curs for [ |
shipment. In and near about Harrison j'
county, Congressman Reed told Mr. r
. Inrlleld that there were 51 of these lit- t
lb wagon mines running a few weeks v
ago. and probably half ot them had c
been forced to quit. In all the country,
h was brought out and so stated by Air. 1
Cartield that there were in the neigh- e
hoi hood of 15,000 mines of this class. I
. The case made out was a strong-one v
and resulted in the promise that such e
' rules would be made and announced 1
j suortly which will enable all these Utile
mines to do their bit, and the new <
i ule. Mr. Carlield said, applying to cars j
j id them would make the loading of a j
car within twenty-four hours of its de J
livery to them, imperative, lie prom- I
ir.ed the now regulations would meet c
the complaints presented ami would F
cover the case of the wagon mines
"reasonably" as to profits permit ted 1
and otherwise.
A similar promise was made with *
iclerence to mines with a minimum 1
vein, frequently interspersed with a
' stratum of dirt and slate, which costs c
more to operate than mines of larger 1
j veins and better grade coal.
One idea which ,it was evident, that ^
the fuel administrator had was that s
the shut down of wagon mines woulQ }
i'!i imn fl?r* mlnom wnrl/inf in ?li nr., ^
seek work at the big mines' and thus
production would not be seriously .
hurt. The argument that members of
she visiting delegation made against .
lhat was that men who worked wagon j
mines were not miners in the regular j
sense, but were men of the farm and a
other avocations, whoso homes were j
I nearby, and that they had no desire a
to follow the busiuess up in big mines e
under conditions which prevailed at s
those larger plants. It was argued c
that a very small number of them com- p
paratively could be forced to continue t
in the business with the shutdown of j
the wagon mines, and that the result p
would be almost a total loss in both ?
men and production, both of which, of p
course, were sorely needed. n
The delegation left with the feeling p
that the wagon or Bmall mine industry
is soon to have the discriminations
laid against it removed, and more lib- *
eral rules provided. This Mr. Garfield c
promised. With that come to pasB, and a
a revision of coal prices upward as
now forecasted, this new branch of
the great coal Industry will be saiely
protected from now on.

sheriff Glover and Assistant
Prosecuting Attorney
Miller in Charge.
Pouring Day is on In Fairmont and
V. M. Glover, sheriff of Marlon couny,
and Charles Miller, assistant proscuting
attorney, are busy directing
he work. The sheriff and his depuies
were on the job carrying the
J.OOO worth of booze to the Jackson
treet sewer, near the opera house,
vhere the contents of the barrels and
>oUIes were emptied. A barrel was
daced near the sewer in which the
mpty bottles were placed.
That the o'ffficers were at work on
lestroyie.g the booze was in evidence.]
or the many callers at the court i
louse smellcd old in miliar scents
vhich were wafted from the "booze
oom." This room, .which is located
n the cellar of the building, was a j
cry interesting looking place today, j
Unor.g tho contraband material were
i wine press, twTenty-ftv?> boxes of 1
urnmts. two barrels of wines, thou-1
lands of quart and pint bottles of
vhiskey, which were in package form. !
n boxes, in ruit cases and some mere- j
ly wrapped in newspapers. In fact,
very conceivable way of handling!
>ooze could be observed in today's
'account of slock." Among the big
die of confiscated goods were ton bit;
joxps of whiskey, which was caught
vhile being smuggled across the
ounty ii\. an automobllo.- / * "y
'The "supply'on hand was unusually
argo ioaay. uecnuse this was the first
louring day in three - months, and
hen, too, the arrests for bootlegging
irere greater in number during that
leriod and the goods taken was in
arger supply than usual.
In checking off the contraband tolay
the officers found that a few new
irands of "fire water" bad shown up
n this community. They were "Old
I'iger," "The Old Coon" and "Lynch- |
rurg Copper Distilled." All of the]
dd familiar brands, like "Old Ilrocklort,"
"Golden Wedding," "Tom
iloore." "Old Linden Club," "Sam
"hompson," and the last,, and probaily
the kind most sold in Point Maron,
Pa., the nearest stop in "wet"
erritory, "Old Fashion." Hundreds
,nd hundreds of bottles of this brand
ould easily be recognized by the faniliar
trade-mark?a star.
During the morning a number of
i.-.-. ons called at the room to view the
tock on hand and the suggestion was
nade by a number of them that per- '
laps the United States Government
nay be able to use some of the higher ,
;rade brands, which are steep in
irice at this time.
While many callers were at the
booze room," no sampling was alowed.
Not a few mouths watered as
hey took the last look at the large
rrav of "good stuff." as some termed
t. The same old discussion started 1
s to whether bootleggers had removd
the higher grade whiskey and subtituted
inferior stuff. This it is
lainied is done by the use of an elec
ric neenie. rsy inat means the botom
of the bottle is removed and after
nferior whiskey is put into the bottle
he bottom is glued in place in some
nan nor. An examination of the flasks
ndicated that a ridge on the bottom
f the bottle Is put there In manufac- '
Hundreds of people viewed the j
louring of the booze Into the sewer,
md to many it was a very solemn ocasion,
to some, almost as impressive
s a church dedication.

If you have not already started a few

be placed right in the hands of a soliier

which is enclosed in each kit will entble
him to write back and tell you
row much he appreciates it. In this
connection the following extract from
p. letter received this morning from the
American iuuuccu company is m considerable
"We are working night and day
at very heavy expense to do this
thing and are supplying the goods
at less than the Jobbers' prices,
because we believe it is a good
work; it's something we understand
best and in which we can,
therefore, be most efficient.
"You know what this work
means to the man at the front
whose nerves are tense; who is
waiting, waiting, waiting, and who
must do something or go to pieces.
To a man under these conditions,
a few puffs at a cigarette will mean
more than a whole box of cigars
at home would mean.
"We are packing and shipping
these kits in a way to ensure their
arriving in good Bhape; this requires
a knowledge gained by ac,
