mooters who have answered their,
country's call are among the most ac-;
tive members of the association and j
their absence is realized more than !
ever doing the present membership
campaign.
Their places must be taken by other,
young Fairmonters. meaning that many ;
new memberships must be secured .
during the present campaign to keep |
the old association up to standard. !
In view of the many young men who j
have entered the service irom the local !
institution and others that have taken !
up Army V. M. C. A. work, it is not j
difficult to realize the significance of j
'he campaign motto. "Maintain the'

campaign against rumor spreaders by!
inviting tno asr.itauce of every citizen;
in tlie effort to trace even.' sensational'
siorv regarding tiie heaith or condi-1
tion of living of soldiers.
A report that lt> soldiers had frozen <
to death at Camp McClelland. Annis-;

attention of the surgeon general. This !
si try has since been traced to three!
soldiers v.-ho have been 011 leave from

Major General Charles G. Morton j
commanding the "blue and gray divis-l
ions"' made the following comment on:
the case.
. "Men who spread such rumors ac-l
complish a great deal of harm. They
cause mothers and fathers unneccs-j

abroad.
The situation has been brought to
the attention of the Shipping board
with a request that some arrangement
be made immediately for delivering oil
supplies to necessary industries.

that it is Just as convenient to hold

'By Associated Pressl
WASHINGTON. Feb. 13.?Investigation
of all phases of the enormous expenditures
in building of government
ship yards at Hog island. Pa.. has
been started by secret service men and
other agents of the department of justice.
I'pon the return to Washington
today of Attorney General Gregory it
became known that Solicitor General
Davis, acting in his absence, had
launched the inquiry ordered by President
Wilson.
Mr. Gregory conferred with the so
licitor general and approved his action.
It is expected that in line with
the president's suggestion that attorney
general will name a special assistant
to conduct the investigation
but this probably will now be done until
after the preliminary inquiry now
under way have developed reports upon
which to work.

! TTe saw it stated in The West vir- j
gini ;n that the peaches had not been t
killed by the unusually severe winter !
we have had. tVhile we hate to be :
a calamity howler we must say that j
whoever gave this information must
have examined the leaf buds. On Sun- j
day I made an examination of the buds |
of several trees and failed to find ev- !
en one live bud. On one small branch *
; here was 56 fruit buds and Just 56 j
dead ones. Mr. Harry McElfresh who I
was for several years a peach crower 1
jn Hampshire county examined many
trees st out here and some in Manning'
ton district without finding a lire j
bud.
The fruit buds are the larger, more
plump buds?often laying in pairs on j
each side of a leaf bud. The leaf j
buds are small and slim. To examine t
them take a sharp knife and make a !
cut across the bud about or slightly j
below the center. The bud should ;
be firm and solid through with a green ;
isfc white germ In center. If rather j
soft and spongy with a small brown ;
spot in center it is dead.

the preparation of prices front Aspnt
last to January of this year before goin
into the difficnlt work of com put- : H
ins cost of production in 191S- The
committee feels that it is Wisdom to ' jB
have the latest figures prepared first
inasmuch as they will be more im- - M-gl
port ant in the event that the data ..'.-J
should be called for before all the costs
required hare been reported by the
many operators of the region.
New Plans for Jobbers' Margins.
Dr. H. A. Garfield. Federal Fuel Ad- y 1
ministrator. has reaffirmed previous
rulings that coal confiscated under
government orders previous to Jar.
IS may be billed at the contract price
upon which the original shipment was A
made. Coal shipped after that date . jH
must be billed at government price
but the shipper may add fifteen cents
a ton covering ofti'-e expenses providing
the coal had been shipped on a (J
bona-fide contract. If the coal was
shipped at government price ft mus*
be billed at that figure.
Dr. Garfield has anounced the new
pian for jobbers margins, effective *
April 1 tnjt April 11 as announced in
some Pittsburg papers of Mondays
which was forecasted in rues* columns
several days ago. The na?
item appeared in some of the Sunday
newspapers and was m the bulletin
issued by the National Coal Association
last Saturday. The jobbers mast
look to the operators for their commissions
after April 1 but the producers*
prices will be raised slightly. I s
The National Coal association is
working on a uniform contract which'
will be .submitted to the Federal Fuel;
Administration. It was suggested by.
operators of the Pocahontas field. In'
the even: that the government adopts
the suggestion i' will probably be
made to cover all coal fields in all region*.
T .
Hit Own Car Oeteetive.
"Tom" Arnett is completely disgusted
with the way the railroad* business
is being conducted, so much so that.
he has sent his own man out to look'
up the curs which were loaded at the jj
mines operated by Mr. Arnett or purchased
bv him. This representative
went from Fairmont to Grafton and
then makes Keyser. Cumberland and
Baltimore in turn. He will check the
index offices in a search for cars some
of which where shipped out of here
as long ago as last June. Mr. Arnett
has tried and tried to get some satisfaction
out of the railroads. He has
coaxed, entreatod and threatened without
gelling results. His experience is .
laughable were it not so serious. He .
has actually been assured that the
railroads had no records of cars being
on their line when the same car would '
show up the next day after a fortnight
on that particular division. He had
one experience where a car lay 42 .
days on a side track where he and his
employes had every chance to get a
lesson of the inefficiency of the rail- >t
road3 in this section. w
Coal Note*. * *" -**' V
The tVest Virginia Traction and
Electric company sold 30 acres of coal
on Scott's run to the Greemont Fuel
company which expects to be shipping
coal by May 15.
The Sabraton plant of the American t .
Tin Plate company near Morgantown.
is temporarily closed down and the t
car shortage is said to be responsible.
