Again has the United States demanded that tin' German government give assurances that the rights of Americans he recognized and that the lives of iioii-combntutits, whether pas? sengers in ueutral or belliger? ent merchant vessels, not lie put in Jeopardy by the unwarned destruction of ships on peaceful errands. The note sent to the Herman government in answer to the flerninn answer, is no whit less firm in its demands thuii tho original note and it puts the matter in so clear a light that there etui he no mis taking its sincerity or tlie de? termination of its authors. Tho United States, in the hope for a peaceful ideating up of the situation, relies upon the principles of humanity, the mil v eibully recognized understand? ings of international law, and the friendship of the (lei man nation. The United States has es its demands upon right and the note makes it plain to all who read that the franters of I he note ure sincere in answer to the note there nmuiiis hut for the Qermnit Kovurtimelil to answer yes or no. The German government must either place itself upon r.eord as Homing the humane demands of this country or must put a stop to the harbor ons warfare for which the tier in in navy has become infamous. The avenues of in hit nil ion are closed and the Germans must answer. So plainly does the note show the rectitude of the attitude of the United States government that we cannot see room lot further quibbling on the part ol Germany. The note shows so absolutely the wrong of the German navy that we cannot understand the deutle for fur? ther continuance of the warfare upon merchant vessels and the murder of nou combatants. Above all things, however, the note shows the altitude of the United Suites regarding tlm rights of American ship masters and American citizens upon the high seas. There must be no abbreviation of those rights for which the patriots of 76 gave their lives. They tut? among (he fundamental posses? sions of the American citizen und the American citizen is ready to dufeiid them with Ins life. In ibis time of stress ami tu mult, when the average citizen is appalled and amazed at the carnage of Klimpe; when it hau become the fashion to deplore and condemn war und blood? shed and all things which might lead to war, the note brings hack to the true Ameri? can ihu realization of national honor and the uatioiiul buinlli uliou which would surely ensue ?f the goverutnent allowed, for fear of war, tho curtailment by oue jot or tittle of the rights be sti..wi?j upon Americana by the blood of the patriot fathers.? Koanoke Times. Good Coal Year The production <>f coal in Vir? ginia in 1914 was7,059,536short tons, valuer) at $8,082'448. Thin wan 808,638 tons less than in 1918, with a decline in value of $920,206, yet tin- output wns greater than in any year pre vious to 1913, according to fig? ures compiled by (V K. Loslior, in cooperation with Hie Virgin* ia Geological Survey, and just mailt1 public by tin- United States (ioological Survey. The decrease in quantity was 0.8 per cent and in value 10.3 per cent, and is attributed to the smaller demand from tin' iron business for coke, us show it by lhe fact that the doorcase of coal made into coke represents 7il per cent of the total decrease for the State, and to the small? er quantity needed to meet the requirements of the railroads and cotton mills normally sup phed by Virginiu coal. In the Geological Surye) bonl reports for IU11 and 1912 Vir giniu and other States of the Appalachian I'rovinee were compared unfavorably With oili? er Slates as to the quantity and percentage of coal shot off the solid. A marked improvement in thai respect was noted in the report for 1013 and a furllll r improvement is shown in the returns for 1014. Ill 1912 the powdortnined coal amounted to 3,741)633 short ions, or 17 7 per cent of the total; in 101)1 to 'J, 870,108 tons, or 32 0 per cent ol the total, and in 1914 to Only 2,420,601 tons, or 30.0 per (sohl of the total. fror auS eral years Virginia has stood relatively high in the quantity of coal produced by each man employed, and 1'.'] I was no exception to the rule. The number of men employed in the coal mines of the Stale increased from 9,102 in 1013 to 0,183 in 1914, unit the average working time decreased from 280 days to 235, The average production per man in 1913 wns 904 toiiB and hi 1914 was 808 tons. The average daily pro dtictioil per man was greater in I'M I, being 8.59 tons against 8,44 tons in 1913.

K?rrners w ho .In most of their business by check ran, with lit? tle effort, keep a very stilisfac- ! tory account of the total farm i roceipts und expenses. Two' things are essential for the sue-] C *-s of this met boil: I'n i. All iiioiiny received from any sou reu, whether in i cash or by check. should bo de? posited in the bank. By doing this the record of deposits will give the entire faun income, Most important of all, it insures against any mono) s being spout without a clieck or stub to show for it. Second. W h n n ?! r a w i n g ! checks, care Bhould btfusadto state for whut purpose drawn, lit this way the cheek stub will give an itemized account of the farm expenditures, i I'tnler this s> stem, clu cks for I money for personal use are Idrawn in the same way ns lor any other purpose. At times the purchase of minor articles for farmi use will require cash when (he amount is so small thai it is not desirable to use a check; therefore, to have an ex net record a memorandum of the farm items which arc paid out of the money checked out for personal use is needed. That ia, these items should he I charged to the farm, but they tire really paid out of the pock? et money which is charger on the check hook to the personal account. A memorandum of produce !exchanged for groceries is also , necessary, as there is no cash transaction in such cases In using this sy stem it is bet? tor to have a large hook of checks, winch, if the farm bu? siness is of moderate size, tin' banker will gladly fur ish with 'the chucks numbered and the owner's name printed on them A check book of this kind will generally last tor a year, Ilms the advantage of hav iug all the accounts in one book. This check-hook system as an aid to keeping financial accounts on the farm is very simple and will prove valuable to a large number of men whose business is adapted to it. .1. W.
