Fifty New Cases Were Officially
Reported Yesterday.
Fifty new cases of influenza were
officially reported to City Health
Physician H. L. Criss yesterday and
only abont one-half of the physicians
of the city reported. It is believed
that the new cases yesterday will at
least equal 72. the number of new
cases reported the day previous, showing
that there is little change in the
rapidity with which the malady ts
spreading in Fairmont.
City Physician Criss has not yet received
any official notice of the ruling
of State Health Commissioner S.
L. Jepson requiring that each influenza
case be quarantined. Until that
notice is received local families where
influenza is prevalent, will not be
troubled with a quarantine.

Unique in Gern
(By Associated Press)
AMSTERDAM. Oct. 11. ? Emperor

Dr. Garfield Makes Personal
Appeal for Full Production.
\ "N
Production Manager A. Brooks
Fleming. Jr., is in receipt of the following
apepal addresed to "all those
engaged in coal mining," asking that
Saturday, October 12, Liberty Lohn
Day and Columbus Day, be observed
by a full day's work in order that the
production of coal will not be curtailed:
To All Those Engaged In Coal Mining:
,, ,nSaturday,
October 12th, Is liberty
Loan Day. It is also Columbus
Day?a double Holiday. In
any other circumstances this
should present two good reasons
to rest and celebrate. This year-rat
the moment when shells are
wanted for the boys over there?
when more shells mean fewer soldiers
killed and quicker victory
and peace?there are two good
reasons to work and celebrate.
First?The coal is needed?sorely
needed?for the war. To lose
one day's output of coal Is a very
serious matter. The boys over there

least we can do at home is to work
and give them the ammunition to
fight with.
Second?The Governemnt must
sell its bonds to buy supplies for
our soldiers. The earnings of all
the miners on Saturday put into
Liberty Bonds would add several
million extra dollars to the American
War Chest.
Thousands of mines worked on
Labor Day, some of the mines
through the voluntary work of
their men made record produc
tions on the holiday. I ask from
your patriotism in the name of the
Government a full day's production
of coal on Saturday, and the Liberty
Loan Committee feels confident
that men who work on their
Legal Holiday will put the money
into bonds.
