NO HOPE FOR WEEK Small Orders from Boone County Mines Were Only Ones Delivered Today. Hundreds of Columbia coal orders are going unfilled today as a result of trouble at the Illinois mines. For several days Columbia dealers have realized that shortage in fuel was im minent and today were forced to re fuse to make any deliveries except in a few cases where it was possible to fill emergency orders with coal from Boone County mines. No hope Is held out by the local dealers for deliveries before next week, except for a few loads which may be had from the mines in the neighborhood of Columbia. According to the dealers questioned, there has been an increased demand for coal oil stoves, and many townspeople have given up hope of running furnaces for another week. At the offices of the Whittle and Hockaday Coal Co., at the Davis and Watson Co., and, at tho Dalton Coal Company it was said that it would be impossible to get any coal here from the Ullonls mines for at least a week. "We are gettinsal HtUe from local mines," said ohVI dealer, "but it takes all day to dig a load of that and so it looks a bit hopeless for the nex't week or so at least" J COLD SPELL BRINGS HARDSHIPS Many Calls on Charity Organization for Food and FueL The present cold weather, combined with high prices of food and coal, has caused many persons to call on the Charity Organizaticn Society for aid.

"It Is almost Impossible to obtain coal at any price," said Mr. Major. "These people who barely earn a liv ing in the summer are unable to meet the need for more clothing and fuel which the cold weather demands." "KEEP OUT OP THE BARM" McBalne. Stock Raiser Wants Cattle left In Peace. , After noting the fact that it costs J. A. Hudson, a stock raiser at Mc- Baine, approximately $150,000 to feed and care for his stock, one can ap preciate the significance of the signs that adorn the entrance to all the feed barns. The placards read: "Attention, Please! An experienced feeder has truly said: " 'When a steer is lying down, chew ing his cud he is making money; when he is up and moving around, not eating, he is losing money.' "Hence please do not enter this en closure or disturb the quiet of the cattle." SO ALL THE GIRLS MAY KNIT Tag Day Receipts Will Be Used to Buy Yarn. Next Friday will be tag day for knitters.

AID OF ALL NEEDED Response of Small Subscrib ers Necessary to Reach Maximum Quota. By Associated Tress WASHINGTON, Oct. 23. The Lib erty Loan was still lagging today on the basis of scattering unofficial esti mates at tho Treasury Department" Officials were hoping that the $3,000.- 000,000 minimum would be reached by tomorrow night, when the heavy anticipated volume of Liberty Day sales would be at hand. Officials announced that there was little information at hand to lead them to believe that the $5,000,000,000 maximum would be reached, al though they thought the sum might possibly bo reached by an eleventh- hour avalanche of subscriptions. "Conviction is felt in many quar ters," the Treasury Department an nounced, "that the $3,000,000,000 mark can bo reached by tomorrow night. Solicitors, spurred on by their failure to make the desired gains yesterday, the first day of the last week of the campaign, began anew today with confident hope of obtaining the neces sary $500,000,000 to pass the $3,000, 000,000 mark by tomorrow at the latest." Liberty Day returns, the heads of some of the district bond committees believed, would reach $1,000,000,000. There is every indication that It may approximate GO per cent of this sum. Conditions and circumstances point more and more to the conclusion that only by a tremendous response of the entire nation by hundreds of thou sands of small subscribers and many- large ones could the total sales be brought anywhere near the maximum quota. 2L U.

Official examlna-, tlon of the crews of the Zeppelins cap tured in France on returning from the raid over England show that the expedition consisted of thirteen air ships, which left singly from three depots on the night of Octoher 19. The raid was expected to last from twen ty to twenty-five hours. The raiders made for the English coast, which was recognized by light houses. They were hampered consid erably by the fire of the British anti aircraft guns and by powerful search lights, which caused them to drop nearly all of their bombs when sail ing at heights of more than 16,000 feet They were also caught by a strong northeast wind and when they attempted to return to their bases their course waschanged by the per sistent high winds. At-6 o'clocltlirlbenionimgTlnjIJiia; the airship which fell when attacked Into the hands of the French, dropped to a lower altitude here in the early morning to discern whether It was sailing over French territory, and wa3 brought down in Westphalia. A little later the L-50 passed over the L-49, which was down on the ground surrounded by French airplanes. The L-50 maneuvered around the spot for a time and finally landed In a nearby wood so as to give members of the L-49 crew an opportunity to escape, but one car was torn off. Part of the crew escaped by means of para chutes. The car was afterward de stroyed by means of special pistols Im the hands of members of the L-50 crew. The L-49 and L-50 belong to the super-Zeppelin class, measuring 650 feet Their volume is 55,000 cubic metres. The airships are manned chiefly by petty officers, who have un dergone a special course of instruc tion.
