I lor manganese, at unprecedented prices
during the war. Is In tha city on
business -with the officials of the Bureau
of Mines. There Is a meeting of
producers with the officials being held
I this week, and CoL Miller is talcing
an active part in it.
The meeting is an important one to
the men engaged In this business. The
end of the war has reduced the limits
cf the market as well as prices, ana
zo*ne of the properties that are expensive
to operate have shut down. CoL
Miller's property is not of that kind.
Fxperts of the Bureau of Mines have
reported on his property to the effect
that it is as fine a grade of hlgn percentage
ore of the kind as is to be
found in the United States, that it is
in inexhaustible supply and can be
operated at a minimum cost. "It is
zdore il&c a ixiiiu wcuut, w?mi ??
cr.e of ^them said, speaking of its
cheapness of operating.
Munition makers used vast quantities
of manganese and the war hawing
practically stopped competlting product
from Brazil and other foreign
countries, manganese mine owners became
suddenly very rich. The war
being over, and there being no tariff
to protect the owners of such proper- .
ties in this country from foreign competition,
the later have felt the effects
appreciably. This is one of rne oroble.'ns
of many concerning the business
which the present meeting of mire
owners and brokers with government
oilidais is confronted.
An offer of considerable over a million
dollars was made for the I&iller
property early in the year, but was
turned down by Qpl. Miller.

by parcel post prepaid, quantities
of not more than three dozen
VapoRub in any one shipment, and by
shipping what was left from our dally
production to oar jobbers by express
instead of freight.
This was costly, bat it solved the
problem for the time being: Now,
however, we find that these small
shipments are constantly increasing?

instead of distributing our goods more
quickly, they are really slowing up
the process.
We believe that va can serve you
better now by reverting to oar former
policy of shipping exclusively through
the Jobber, and, effective immediately,
no more drop shipments will be made.
While we hare put on & night shift
and have, thereby, about doubled our
production, we are still unable to fill
our back orders and won't be able to
i give each jobber all the Vapo-Rub he
wants. Hence, it will be necessary
or fhe jobbers to continue distributing
VapoRub in small lots only. But
