organization embracing domestic and .
industrial consumers in various sec- j
rions of the state, -which will make {
its first move for such a regulation j
on the part of the state, in all proba-1
bflity today at Charleston. The peti- j
tion of the city of Morganiown is ex- i
pected to go to the Public Service j
Commission in Charleston today on
this-matter and it is possible that the
petition from the city of Fairmont and
the tqwn of Pennsboro will' be filed at
the-same eime.
The petitions to be filed before the
commission are supposed to represent |
the different conditions at various j
points. The best legal talent in the;
state has been busy on the prepara- j
tion of these petitions and the legal j
points embraced are the result of the
study of three or four lawyers who;
have given the rights of the state in |
? the protection of its natural resources 1

system of the French and American j
armies at Che request of the military t
officials, the Y. M. C. A. has organ-1
tzed an operating company with a cap-1
ital of $5,009,000 and is preparing to|
do a business of $200,000-000 a year in ,

French soil. In an announcement, i
made here tday it -was stated that at j
least 3.300 men would be required to ;
conduct the affairs or this business. !
Of this number several hundred have !
already been secured and sent abroad. I
A total of 934 secretaries had been |
sent to France by the American Y. M.;
C. A. on February 1. Many of these;

A constant stream or American,
business and professional men is be-!
ing fed into the overseas work of the;
Y. M- C. A. Because of the extraordi- i
nary demand on the part of the sol- j
dicrs for the facilities and advantages
offered them either free or at cost by j
the Y. M. C. A. an army of trained men j
is required to render this service, i
Throe hundred and twenty-five secre- j

"Millers may exchange flour for
wheat -with farmers without farmers
taking substitute commodities.'* Butt
the farmers are objecting to the ruling
that the}- can only take home from the
mil! thirty day's supply of flour. Xo
matter how many bushels of wheat
they bring in. they have to leave all
but the month's supply. What they !
leave is put to their credit. They are
compelled to come all the way back j
for another thirty day's supply at the :
end of the montk. The government
asks the farmer to use substitutes
but takes bis word for it.
Hard spring wheat grown In the
northwest makes the best bread. Soft
winter wheat is raised in West Virginia.
This is better for pastry flour.
There was more soft wheat raised
this year than spring wheat and as a
consequence the government has asked
mills to use fifty per cent of each.
If you notice a difference jn your
bread this is the reason for it. Another
interesting point: The government
asks the mills to get about twenty
more pounds of wheat than formerFT*U

a little darker but makes no particu-1
lar difference in the quality of bread.

How many people know the difference
between graham flour and whole
wheat flour? According to a miller
the difference lies in the mere fact
that the bran is graham shrdlueu
tbat the bran in graham flour is left
whole and is ground flne in the whole-,
wheat flour. These two flour6 are not;
substitutes as many have learned this j
The immense tank often noticed at'
the Milling Company headquarters, j
holds forty thousand bushels of grain, i
Tt has eight compartments holding i
five hundred bushels each?three are j
for wheat and the rest for oats and !
com. About one hundred and fifty I
barrels of flour a day are milled at the.f
Fairmont Grain and Milling Co., in J
ordinary times.
The real situation in Fairmont Is at j
a standstill just now. There is a de
mand for small farms just now. A ;
number are considering farming as a i
good way to earn a living during the j
war and also as a pretty safe way ;

account of low gas pressure
he T.tonongah Glass factories have I
been shut down nearly all winter. Some j
of them have been working off and i
on. No. 2 shop between Eleventh and
Twelfth streets has been closed down
for nearly a month now. The machine
shops can run by electricity and
as a consequence have not been closed.
The new factory In the process
of building will have all machine
presses. The Monongah Company are
working otf the producer plant system
t,;i? Vno mn shinps does not apply
and on a number of other Improve-1
bore. The Monongab Glass Company
work rain or shine on new ways of
working. They are now busy on a
new type of works built on an entirely
different principle, to save many
thousands of dollars of gas and hope
to have it completed by next year.
They are also working on a system
for conveying the glass ware from the j
pressing machines automatically, so:
that the glass will not be handled at j
all until it reaches the packing room.
At present, work is being directed j
to the building of the batch bins {
which are to supply both the new factory
and the old. These bins are j
about completed. The weighing and j
mixing cars which travel under the
bins and run by electricity up an elevator
to the conveyor belt will be a
new installation of the Monongab Glass
Company. While the shops have been
closed, work has been progressing on
the tanks which arc all being remodeled
to allow for the using of producer
gas. The checker work is also being
renewed. The checker work consists
of brick-work used for reclaiming
the heat. The gas is put into one side
of the furnace and passes through the
checker work. Every twenty minutes
the direction of the flow of gas is reversed
to reclaim the beat which has
passed through the tank. In this way
no heat is lost.
It is interesting to note that 2Co. 2
etinr* between ' Eleventh and Twelfth :
Street -was originally designed fori
cither producer heat or gas.
One particularly interesting feature J
of the new factory lies in the fact that I
the very newest kind df lehrs or tempering
furnaces are to be installed I
and furnished by H. L. Dixon of Pittsburgh.
These lehrs are to have a

Hawaiian Musical ComedyExpected
to Break Pre- j
vious Record,
The return of "My Honolulu Girl" j
tK, winnodroma theatre for three |
days beginning with a matinee at 2:30 |
Thursday recalls the wonderful sue- <
cess achieved by this attraction upon j
its former appearance in this city a;
year ago. At that time the demand far i
admission was so great that hundreds j
of people failed to gain admittance and !
a booking was immediately arranged |
at the close of the engagement forjts j
return a season hence. It now appears :
that the Hippodrome management exercised
great foresight in doing so as
the demand for this attraction has j
been so great this season that big of- i
fers are being daily refused by Nor- (
man Freidenwald. the owner of the ;
show, from managers who have since :
been impressed by its great drawing >
powers . Nearly every house that has '
pl^ed this attraction has cither want
ed its engagement extended or has !
asked for an early return date. Izi !
every instance the otters, however;
tempting, had to be rejected as the :
attrfctVn is scheduled for dates that '
will carry it way beyond the usual the-!
atrical season.
The show needs no introduction to j
Fairmonters, for those who were for- j
tunate enough to see it last season ,
have sung its praises ever since and '
there are comparatively few people in j
this city who have not been appraised i
of Its character and entertaining qual- j
ities by word of mouth. It Is estimated '
that the crowds this year will exceed j
those on the previous occasion, but the j
management hopes to satisfy all by
giving three performances daily and j
is boosting the advance sale of seats !
oaa Also cul.uuia6i^)S l-v-jv ttmv i
conveniently do so to take advantage
of the matinees or attend the late even- J
ins performances. The crowds arc
usually largest, at the first evening i
show, due to the fact that many out of ,
town patrons are dependent upon the j
street cars to get home. To help in '
this matter the show hours have been
arranged a half hour earlier than usual '
and the pictures entirely omitted from '
the program, thus concluding the lirsc .
evening performance before nine '
o'clock and the second one about 10:20. i
It is hoped by this arrangement to !
accommodate the crowds and avoid dis- j
appointments similar to those that oc
curred on account of the rush at tbc '
former appearance of this beautiful j
Hawaiian production in this city.
The attraction this year has many :
new features, but the story of the play |
and the enchanting music and rcpro- j
duction of native customs of merry j
making by these interesting peoples :
of. the Paradise of the Pacific have i
been retained. There has been added !

this feature of last year's show has J
eben greatly enhanced. A greater va-I
riety of costumes jvill be noticed, but;
nothing has been taken away from i
the Hawaiian atmosphere, either in its
musical numbers or magnigicent seen-!
ic features. The comedy element is i
more prominent than in the former :
production and it is likely that all j
those who see the show during its |
brief stay here will agree that it is
bigger and better than ever.

Vegetable Preparations Superceded
By Mineral Compound Unearthed
Down In Mississippi.
"Waking up mornings stiff and numb I
with rheumatism won't let any man!
or woman do much work and when the j
pains get up around the 3houlders and ;
arms damp mornings you can't do any- J
thing at all. -
Climate has a lot to do with It but !
no use rubbing or waiting and the dis-1
covery of Acid Iron Mineral down in j
Mississippi gives most anyone a j
chance to soon be free from such trouh'o?
One man. Mr. J. B. Watkins, of I
Trolltville. Va.. writes: "1 suffered j
from rheumatism so bad I hadn't been !
able to raise my arm aboTe my bead I
and couldn't set my coat off for a Ions '
time, and damp days a dull throbbins'
pain in my shoulder, especially at nightj
drove me crazy almost, but Acid Iron !
Mineral was recommended and one lit-1
tie bottle did the work for me and 11
want to recommend it. I can now use !
my arms and shoulders freely, ana
even damp chilly morning 1 am not
troubled in the least. Its use proved
its merit and I'm for it all the time."
The big percentage of medicinal iron
la Acid Iron Mineral is of course what
gets results in such blood troubles, i
and the compound is so strong that a {
half teaspoon ful makes a generous
dose mixed in water after meals.
Everybody needs iron and as a blood
tonic and purifigr and eradlcator of
uric acid there's nothing like it. The
big outstanding feature is that it
doosn't injure the teeth, cost is but little
and it does the work quickly. Most
stores have it. Sold in Fairmont by

During the present week the Lutheran

the United States to secure !>750,000
so as to maintain that portion of
the work in the cantonments and the
trenches of France which has been
portioned out to that denomination.
Fairmont wiil he called upon to do its
bit. The canvas here will rot be conducted
here among the public generally.
but will be confined to a small
group of Lutherans in this city and
perhaps a number of close friends.
Charles A. Pilson. one of the prominent
laymen of Grace English Lutheran
church is the campaign manager
for Fairmont and Marion county. No
specified amount is named for this
district, but the instructions state "do
as well as you can.*' Naturally the
burden of this big amount of money
wiil have to be borne by the more
densely populated Lutheran communities.
but Fairmont will do its part.
This work like all other agencies
for good in the great war uplift movements
is not being duplicated by the
y. M. C. A., Salvation Army or others,
but is that portion which is portioned
out to the Lutheran church. At the
present time there are 190.000 young
Lutherans in Uncle Sam's service on
