"Merchants' Week" In Bris?
tol. August 25. 26, 27.
Beginning August '25 and
eontiuuing until the nigbl of
August '27, the Bristol Board of
Trade ami the jobbers mid the
manufacturers of Bristol have
arranged to entertain royally
all merchants of the Bristol
trade territory Thirty-five
liundrisd invitations have been
untiled out to merchants. These
invitations contained coupons
for Iii? rul free entertainment
for every merchant who visitH
Bristol on the dates mentioned.
It has been designated us "Mer?
chants' Week" iu Bristol, and
all wholesale houses have called
their traveling salesmen in for
the three days in order that
they may devote the time to
aiding in the entertainment.
Arrangements have been
made for a complimentary ban-'
quet, a theatrical evening, auto
! mobile rides over the city and
surrounding country and rides
on the lines of tbo traction com?
pany
A reception committee will
meet all trains during the three
days, and bid all visiting mer?
chants welcome. The occasion
promises to be the most notable
event of its nature in the history
of Bristol. Several hundred
merchants have responded to
the invitations, and it is certain
that the Bristol people will
entertain the largest number
of merchants that ever visited
that city in a single week.
BEWARE DIPTHERIA
Board of Health Anxious that
Antitoxin Be Available for
First Appearance of
Disease.
Richmond, Vu., Aug 21.?
Basing its warning on records
which show that diptherin
makes its appearance annually
in Virginia during August, the
State Board of Health today
announced the Continus.>f
previous plans for tho distribu
lion at wholesale cost prices of
high grade diptboris antitoxin,
As in the past, tin- Board has a
contract with a well-known
manufacturer, by which the
Hoard keeps in stock an abund?
ant supply of antitoxin, which
can be bad at any hour of the
day or night by those who
writo, telephone or telegraph
for it. Bill will he rendered by
the manufacturer.
In view of the extreme im?
portance of having antitoxin tit
hand when a case of diptherin
appears, the Board is urging
county boards of health and
druggists to purchase antitoxin
ami have it when? parents who
need it for their children can
get it without delay. Exper?
ience has shown that most of
the deaths from diptherin are
duo either to the neglect of
antitoxin or to failure to ad?
minister it during the earl)
stages of the diseases. A few
hours' delay tremendously in
Creases the danger of death;
prompt use will almost in?
variably prevent serious C0U80
quences.
The cost of antitoxin bought
through the Board of Health,
is, as heretofore, less than one
third the normal retail price.
.Many druggists, however,
are conforming to the scale of
prices set by the Board and are
aiding in the general distribu?
tion of the remedy.

Kentucky Coke Production
Increasing
I Coke is manufactured in Ken?
tucky from eoiil mined in both
the eastern ami western parts
of the State, but although the
coals of the eastern counties
are in a large part among the
high-grade coking coals of the
Appalachian ?eld, most of the
coke, until the last two years,
has been made in the western
district, which is part of the
Illinois Indiana field. Since the
recent extensive coal-mining
developments in the Elkhorn
district of Pike and Harlan
counties, however, coke ovens
have been built and the princi?
pal coking activities have shift
ed to the eastern part of tli>>
State, mid Kentucks is now as
Burning some importance as a
coke manufacturing State. The
production hns increased from
less than 50,000 tons in 1908 to
101,663 tons in 1912 and to :u7,
084 tonsin IDlS. During 1913s
plant of .'.t Semet Solvay by
product ovens and ?u new bee?
hive ovens were constructed
and by a coincidence 101 ovetJ?
were abandoned, so that tl'?
total number in existence :il
the close of 1913 was the same
(1,049) as at the closo of 1912.
