H&'1914>. In the lease Fisher specified
H that the side track to be used for load
tog coal should be built from the forty
H;; -acre tract "upon the premises de
ascribed in the lease." The coal com-paay
claims that it has put the side
P f trade on the railway right of way.
Which is specified in the lease. Fishclaims
that such is not the case
KKaad wants the railroad to extend on
H^gkhiB land. To build the railroad at the
H - -joint Fisher wants it. the defendant
I " ; company claims that it would neces^H
sitate going np a steep grade and it
onld cost the company probably $10,

Modifications were made in this zone
of the United States fuel administration
today so that operators in the
Fairmont field can ship coal to the
New England cities by ran, according
to R.0 B- Isner, district representative
of the trailed States fuel amtnistratlon.
Up until today the Fainnonters were
not permittted to ship their coal by
east of New York city and certain
points in New Jersey nd Delaware.
What coal tl ej shippped to New England
was obliged to be sent by boats
from tidewater and.as a result no inland

With the modification of the zoning
cn as announced today this will enable
Fairmont operators to compete in the

the two stamp windows.
Many persons, had Just this experience
on Saturday and returned home
disgusted to wait until bright and
early this morning and then to try
again. Brightx and early however,
fonnd many others there and these
persons were obliged to take up another
wait. It was practically impossible
to secure stamps at either window
as the boxes came thick and fast.
Streams of persons carrying anywhere
from a fifty pound box to a
basket fall of tiny packages were constantly
wending their way to the postoffice
and it looked as though the
stream would not ebb* before night
Possibly never before in the history
of the local office has the congestion
been greater and the clerical force is
about to be swamped by the belated
Christmas gift sender.
Tons of Christmas stuff is being received
at the local postoffice and is
being handled -as rapidly as possible
and the great amount of package
stuff as well as first class mail is also
being dispatched as readily as fossible.

P. P. Hall, local weather observer,
todoy stated that the lowest temperature
during the month was 24, while
