SUBSCRIBERS arc earnestly re? quested tu observe the date printed on their address Hlips. which will keep them nt nil times posted as to the date Of the expiration of their sub? scription. Prompt and timely attention to this request will save nil parties a great deal of annoyance, The Diamond Honor Roll. Mr. KU I tor: Tin? public schools have a very deserving and commenda? ble system of putting pupils who make a perfect attendance anil almost perfect grades on nil their studies, on the monthly honor roll. If the student makes the honor roll each con sectiiivo month, be is placed on the Golden hotter roll, but wo have a pupil in the public school nt ihis place who ought to be placed on the DIAMOND IION tilt ROLL. When the teachers were read ing out the names of those who made the honor roll for Decein bet the mime of a little boy was rend oul us having made ii. T h e little fellows face Hushed with pleasure a n d a bright smile Illumined his fea? tures, Then the smile faded und the face saddened, and he BHid "Miss-, yon forgot thai I was tard> once." George Washington told the truth about the cherry true in the face of punishment. This little fellow told the truth in the face of loosing a much cherished honor, (lev Stuart returned the premiums award ? d his stock by mistake. This noble little fellow refused to allow hin name to be placed on lie- honor roll by mistake. We have a man with a con? science in the white house, a lii.it. with a conscience us Qov enor, and n boy with a con? science in our public school; may this noble boy preserve tins priceless spirit, and live lo till the office of both Governor and President. Would it not lie a good idea lor our public schools to adopt the Diamond Honor Roll to re? ward such honor loving spirits as ibis little boy has evinced? W. s. M. Senator John Sharp Williams ol Mississippi, one of the bril lilllll lights of the upper house of the Federal Congress, has bee.me mi out and out advo? cate for a cessation of battle? ship building and tirnament milking Asa student at the University of Heidelberg, Gor ni hi., where he specialised in .international law and economic subjects, Senator Williams he came an ardent believer in the doctrine of international peace, till hough at one lime in his ca? reer he believed in the "code du.dlo" and practised it. To. day however, he has the most profound respect for a man whe does not ??tote" a gllh, relying upon nature's own weapons to resent insult u n d calumny. Senator Williams, in conversa? tion with a number of newspa? per men the other day, made the startling statement that un? less Germany calls a halt on its artiiN and navy program, it will he u bankrupt nation in twenty years, the drift to this condition being insitlble unless the labor and socialist parties should get control of the gov? ernment within that period "With Germany a bankrupt nation," said the senior sena? tor from Mississippi, "the h nances of the world would be Unsettled, Knglind and the united States alone being able to withstand the blighting ef? fects of such a catastrophe."

Let There Be Light. The public school system of Virginia went into operation in 1s71. Since then the state has expended more than sixty mil? lions of dollars on its mainten? ance and development. Now Supet iiitendentStearns in plead? ing for a heavy increase of the annual appropriation i u the Department of Educution says there are eighty one thousand while children in the state,over ten vents of age, whose illitera? cy is such that they cannot write their names. If this is true, why is it so'r Il is because the school accom? modations fall thai short of adequacy to provide for tho adequacy lor the school popula? tion:- If thai is the case the dellciency should be supplied at whatever cost to other meri? torious governmental objects. Hut is it n fact:- And if the ad? ditional money is granted, will it bo applied exclusively to the extension of school accommo? dations'' And if il is done, will the problem of mm attendance be solved!1 These are questions which the Finance Committees of the General Yssembl) should ask and have fully answered be fore granting t be increased school fund which the Hoard of Education asks for Unless the half-million of increment is to go directly to reduction of the number of these has no bearing on the subject of extra appro priatious.

These figures an- given oui by Edward W. Parker, coal statistician <>f ihn Survey, with the Btstement, however, the"! ih<* coal mining industry in 1013 lacked any spectacular features, the iu crease, in other words, being normal and an index of the gen? eral indurtrinl activity of the country. < >f this increase aboill 1,600,000 tons was in the production of anthracite and the resl in tili- output of the bituminous coal mines. There were a few labor dis? turbances i u 11113, but they were local in extent and effect. The most pronounced !al>or disaffection was in Colorado, when- a general strike was called about the middle id Sop tomber, and coal production iu that State during the last quar? ter bf the year was but little more than 50 per cent of nor? mal. There was general coin plaints particularly in the East ern States, of shortage of labor and inability on the part of the Operators to keep their mines working at full capacity. This was probable t h e reason for less than the usual com? plaint of the inadequate or in? sufficient transportation ser? vice. Coal mining, like all Other industries in the Ohio Valley Stales, was seriously in? terfered with by the Hoods in that region during the spring of 1013, ami probably from 5, 000,000 to 10,000,000 tons of coal would have been added to the year's output but for the great disaster. As there were n o violent fluctuations in the de maud by the blast furnaces, steid works, and other mann fncturillg industries, the de? mand for coal for those purpo? ses showed only a normal in? crease. The continued decrease in the production of fuel oil in the .Mid Continent oil field and Ithe Btrike in lite Colorado coal [mines resulted in an increased output of cool in the Southwest? ern .Males. The coal production in 1012 WUS ? M ,4.00*680 short tons, ami the output in 1013 would proba? bly have been somewhat III ex? cess of 576,000,000 tons except for i he general shortage ot Iu bor in the larger COnl-prodtlC ing Siaies. This deficient labor supply was sin important factor however, io enabling operator-, to maintain prices and it pre? vented an output III excess ot market requirements, which' would have addeit one more 10 numerous preceding y ears vv hen prices were demoralized by an excessive supply. As it was, ihere was a slight advance in prices, compared with 1012, The total coal production in 1000 was 200,084,000 tons.
