Experience IN previous tnlks we have shown you ihnt the dura? bility of n tire depends on the quantity and quality of the materinls used; and wc have nlrcndy shown you how to determine the quantity. But you cannot gauge the quality of rubber and fnbric in a tire simply by looking at it. You must be guided by the experience- and reputation of the tire maker. 1 he woild's first pneumatic automobile tire and tube were made by Michclin back in 1805. Since that lime the House of Michclin (founded 1832) has concentrated on the production of pneumatic tires only, and today has fac? tories in the United States. France, England and Italy, with selling branches in every corner of the world. I hus the scientific brains of the entire! globe have been and arc: at Miehclin's disposal. More and Better Materials is the Michclin watchword. Yet Michclin I ires arc not high priced, J. ^V. MORRIS, Denier BIG STONE GAP, VA.

VIRGINIA AND KENTUCKY COAL FIELDS A correspondent writing to tho Manufacturers Record regunrd iug tlie vuBt possibilities of Vir? ginia and Kentucky coal fields says in a recent issue of that publication: When you realize that this is one of the greatest undeveloped coal lields in tho world, and the coal trade of tho whole world is thrown directly at tho feet of this Virginia and Ken? tucky coal field, it need riot to surprise you to see big things happen. I am told that J. 1'. Morgan is fully awuro of this coal trade opportunity, but ho is very closely tied up in the financing and purchasing for tho Allies just at this time. Charleston, 3. C., is the clos? est tidewater outlet, and one or two double track lines with bloclric haulage with power generated at the mine mouth, are absolutely essential, Big Stone Gap is the natural gate? way and metropolis for for 60,000,000,000 ions of Virginia and Konlucky coal. There is some agitation on in Harlan to put n]? a fund of two cents a ton on the output for ii bit; publicity fund to acquaint Wall Street with the facts about this big opportunity. VV. IS, Morrow, the secretary of the Louisville Hoard of Trade, has been to Harlan, Ky , and helped lay the foundation for a big peace preparedness in prepar? ing to handle? this world's coal trade tile moment peace is de? clared. We tire all intensely interest lid in getting out every ton of coal possible to help win tho war,local publishers in this held are devoting much space to ag? itating and coaxing lite miners to their greatest possible of-1 licienoy. To show the spirit aboard in this Held, 1 would cite you liar Ian county going seven limes over hprquota iii her Red Cross drive. Ouo miner ulono loaded 'Jo toils of coal on K"d Cross day, when ever miner ill liar lau gUVe his day 's work to Bed Cross. Truly the South has Immense possibilities, but I challenge the whole South to show the im mouse money value of mineral resources, especially so as Ibis coal will be thrown wide open for development to supply tho coal trade of the world the mo? ment peace is declared.
