I IT MAY GO HIGHER Raise of Monday Added Forty Five Cents to the Market Price. Tilj West Virginians who buy cul 5"' How make no mistake in judginei'. ' Those who bought coal last week at the prevailing price are savers over *hose who buy this week, when I'resiSi dent Wilson has added 45 cents a ton k to the market price. The increase in B? Drice is not criticised t'nr it whk m l-l;. k' 10 meet the miners' demand for higncr K~ wages. f;?. A. J. Casey, editor of the American Coal Journal, thinks, according tu p;. telegraphic advices, that setter results might have been obtained by the ftel administration had it commandeered railroad cars needed by the operators and left the coal situation to itself out that It merely the opinion of one 01 I"; the many coal authorities. Mr. Casey thinks that tha fuel administration made a mistakp at the start by not seeing to It that the operators secured ffit" enough cars to keep the mines work ing eight hours a day every day. rtc V argues that that would have preveutI . ed a coal shortage and contends that the price would automatically have gone down. "Even if the mines got pa cars so they could work eight hours if i every day Instead of onyl three dav a week (one day last week in the KnitI" mont-Clarksburg region) it would force down the price," lie is quoted rs E-' ; saying. Regarding the 4.r> cents in ?> crease Mr. Casey said: "The public p'f will have to pay it end there is no way ftu : - around that." Dr. H. A. Garfield expressed the es| ?E? sentlal unity of purpose and action el ? . -. the coal industry and the government at his recent address to operators at Pittsburgh.

Dr. Harry A. Garfield. !)r 'iarry A. Garfield is five feet I eight inches in height and weighs 170 pounds. He lias a solid figure, woll rounded, and looks like he enJoyed tho best of health and took nourishment regularly, though he is not fat. His head Is rather larger than the usual. Ilia face is broad but no feature is emphasized unless it is the jaw. His eyes are wide apart and ono is smaller than tho other. Ills hair is brown and he has an abundance of it. His hair has just a tinge of gray. His fingers are of moderate length and suggest the aristocrat. His clothps are careful chosen and well fashioned though there is nothing extreme about his dress. He wore a brown suit at Pittsburgh, with the ohlh vwut ii 14liwiitu, fiMpijiiHi7.ni>; ine outline of his figure. Ilo is a forcible speaker though lacking in tlio traits of an orator. He is precise in his use of words and clear in his enunciation. Every word he said at Pittsburg seemed to bo weighed, which is not surprising as he talked on a subject which had but recently attracted him for detailed investigation and he addressed men who had liver coal for years. J. Walter Barnes. J. Walter Iiarnes, of Fairmont, recently named as fuel administrator for West Virginia is not unlike his superior in the nation. Ho is also five feet, eight inches in height. He weighs ICG pounds, not being quite so stocky or broad shouldered as Dr. Garfield. Mr. Barnes has blue ees, the fair complexion which goes with them and for many years has worn, whiskers, offering the English cut which gives him a distinguished air. His eyes are large and through tlicm the character of the man can be easily read. His hair is turning gray ? ?- ? ey aves Wheat I vays been used e famous food j-Nuts i Parley is richer in pro lan wheat. onf fliaf r>V?antroc i V VltUU VttMiigV'U 1 ? at starch into sugaindividual flavor? ey sugar? his world-famed food Help Save Wheat "WE HERALD TODAY?

He is|e< plump tn the region where nourishing cl food (probably fried mush this week) a Is expected to leave its ImpXesslon. Mr. Barnes generally wears gray and is ono of the few men in Fairmont ,, who sticks to the swallowtail coat, another distinguishing trait to the o closely observant. He is an Interest- M Ing talker, well posted 011 topics of st the day, and fair In his Judgment so that there is never any uneasiness of ~ his getting on the wrong side of any proposition. Mr. Barnes Is the one j man coming to mind who has taught school for any length of time without ' getting the task-setter's fault of al- ? was being certain that he Is right. -Mr. Barnes is liberal In his views, slow In pronouncing an opinion on an 0. important matter and possesses that discrimination by which he comes to v conclusions which are certain to be * as near-Solomon-like as modern wis- |j' dom permits. Mr. Barnes, llku his ? chief, has not made any particular ' study of coal and enters into his new work without any prejudices whatever, which was doubtless the reason advanced by Governor Cornwell In his collection and the national admin- ^ istratlon in its insistence upon his acceptance. ?( Edgemont Baby I Dies Very Suddenly Bovd Edwin Triplett, uged six weeks, j the son of Mr. and Mrs. H.
