Under the new federal child labor law no coal operators or factory owners may employ any children sixteen years old or younger.

The federal trade commission ban not asked coal operators to submit re-1 ports sines last December. The com-| mission nas maae a new iorm oi reI port .which has several objectionable features, coal operators contend. A great many protests have been made about these features to the commission by coal operators, especially through the channels of the National Coal association. The commission Is asking coal operators whether they are willing to submit these reports or not, and the National Coal association Is feeling out the sentiment ameng Its members. The matter will be definitely acted upon at the next meeting of the directors of the National Coal association, % which will be held during the middle of June. Operators generally believe thai this report Idea should be continued through the coal associations If nol by tho government, because it glvee the small operator an Idea of what II costs to produce coal. & ji-State Association.

So Declares Men Who Has Spent $5,000,000 for Publicity. CHICAGO. May 26. ? Thirty-two years ago Henry C. Lytton opened "The Hub," on the northwest corner of State street and Jackson boulevard; and certain wise merchants of the city chuckled heartily. He had but $13,<JbO. He borrowed 69,000 more; and then before he even opened the door he spent $5,000, almost one-fourth of his entire capital, in?what do you suppose? Newspaper advertising! Yes, it was a great Joke. Not only had this raw youngster moved " 'way out to the edge of town," where nobody would ever find the place, but he "Just threw away 25 per cent, of his 1 capital." Today there is only one of those | wise men in business, and he's on a ; side street, and you hear little about him. Mr. Lytton's store has grown into a State street skyscraper; and in those thirty-two years he has spent more than $5,000,000 In newspaper advertising. Mr. Lytton told the story at a birthday dinner the other night in the , Blackstone hotel. He's one of those wiry, restless, active captains of lni dustry you read about, with wide . shoulders and prodigious fists. He's . more than seventy, yet on each Bide of the bald furrow in the center of his head the hair is Jet black, with only a : few white hairs Bhowlng. i "It may seem strange," he Baid, "but i the people believe what they read in ; the newspapers. That's what makes advertising in the newspapers so valuable. I have always made it a point . to state the truth exactly, never to exaggerate. 1 would rather have the , customer a little surprised when he i looked at the goods than a little disappointed. "I've tried advertising on billboards, . in street cars, in magazines, and pam phlets, in novelties. I once sent up i a flock of balloons with letters tied : to them, and prizes?J500, <100 and other awards?to the finders. "I stuck?up sign posts all over the i city, with hubs on the top of them, you know, and the street names. Well, > some of them went for kindling wood; some were torn down by the city when : they put up street signs. I tried many other ways of advertising?hut the newspapers proved by all means the i best, and T kept everlastingly at It.

WESTJPIA (Continued from page one.) gladly. The officers of the corporation are as follows: J. E. Watson, president; M. L. Hutchinson, vice president and treasurer; George M. Alexander, secretary. The directors other than the men mentioned are. Congressman George M. Bowers, of Martlnsburg; Sprlgg D. Camden, well known Parkersburg banker and capitalist; Governor John J. Cornwall; Paul E. Clelland, a director of two brass manufacturing plants located In Cleveland; Virgil L.

Watson and Jere Wheelwright, whose connection In the upper Monongahola valley are too well known to need enumeration. This is only a partial list of the directors, however. There will be several other West Virginia business men equally well known in the list when It Is completed. In addition to the advantages which the mill here will have over those in Connecticut In the way of cheaper fuel, power and freight charges it will have the additional benefit of being the most modern plant of the kind in America. This will mean a saving of thousands of dollars even after It becomes necessary to run all the furnaces with electric heat, which will be as soon as the ga&here falls as a manufacturing proposition. One of the best known and most experienced men hi the brass and copper Industry will be the plant manager here and the machinery, every detail of It, will be the last word In that particular. The copper and brass rolling Industry of the United States has been centered in Connecticut for over one hun: dred years. This Industry developed i in Connecticut before zinc or copper : were mined in this country to any ap1 preciable extent, and the output in the i early days was consumed for buttons i and tfeneral household articles. Later, i when zinc was discovered in New Jeri sey^ and copper in the Upper Great Lakes Region, the industry continued in Connecticut because of the commerJ A Good 6 leonard Refrigerator is a Heal L Rprcment Every housewife hqows that summertimais no time to negjT lect \he proper care hany summer ailments can ipt eatables.

Prices frr. .. ,j>9.00 3 [ardware cial Impetus it had gained and because the New England people bad considerable interest in the ownership of the Upper Lakes copper mines. At the present day, it is easily proven that the better- location for the brass and copper rolling Industry is at a point considerably west of Waterbury. Connecticut, because of the economy in the transportation of materials and the cheapness of fuel and electric current nearer the coal fields. The metal work Industry in Pittsburgh, Youngstown. Dayton, Cincinnati, Columbus, Buffalo, St. Louis and Chicago, has always keen dependent upon New England for their supply of brass and copper products . This market the demands of which 'ate continually increasing, normally consumes 10,000,00# pounds of brass and copper products per month or over 120,000,000 pounds annually. Under former conditions, the usual profit on these products was from 2c to 2He per pound, but for several years has amounted to from 8c to 10c per pound. Thus It can be seen that the profits from the district tributary to the plant of the West Virginia Metal Products Corporation will range from $3,000,000 to $12,000,000 annually. There is no orass ana copper miu in tne scale of W6*t Virginia. The geographical position of West Virginia gives it in every way a mark- I ed advantage as a manufacturing and distributing point for these products, and presents from the standpoint of profitableness through the efficient management which the company will have, an excellent opportunity of fillings serious need ot this district and offering unexcelled opportunities and attractions to an investor. The coming of this plant will mean that Fairmont will have to provide houses for many more families than we now have. If the plant starts to run within six months, and that is the present hope, It probably will be operating at 100 per cent, capacity within one year. There will have to be some hustling if the housing situation is to be prevented from retarding the growth of the newlndustry. Moreover it is not only the" employes of the brass plant Itself that must be thought of. Tt Is the expectation that the location here of a brass producing mill will attract many of the brass using industries. They too will he benefited by the same combination of clrcum* stances that brought the big mill, and in every case these smaller industries will bring skilled and highly paid labor homes for which must be provided.

An article published in the Sunday Times of Fairmont stating that a law passed by the last legislature placing a 8200.00 tax on retail dealers in soft drinks caused consternation among that class of dealers here. If it Is true they will all cut out soft drinks entirely aa none of them can stand such a prohibitive tax. Water Plug Broken.
