THE GREENEVILLE DAILY SUN, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER Id, 1919.
THREE J. j SAYINGS OF MRS. SOLOMON 4 By Helen Rowland 4" ij J Harksn, my son, unto the parable of the Benedict and the Bachelor. Now, in Babylon, there dwelt two perfectly happy men; nnd one was married and the other was a single footer, and their names were House Dog a id Free Wolf. And, in thir college days they had been friends, even a3 David and Jon athan, borrowing each other's moneys, usir.g each othei's razors, appropriating each other's clothes and chumming together without fuss or quarrel, which is the wonder and j despair of women. For neither so much r.s touched the other's PIPE, nor looked at the other's GIRL. And, in time, it befell that One of them took unto himself a wife. For, who can escape Kismet! or a Woman ! Then, the other mourned him, as "The Dead and Married" ARE mourn ed. For marriage is a knife that sever eth friendship; and never lived there a woman who welcomed her hus band's bachelor friends. And lo, after many years they foregathered ag3in. And the Married Man lifted up his voice and bayed boastingly of his Home and his Wife, und his great Happiness, so that the bachelor en vied him mightily, and sighed: "Alas, alas, a single man is a wretched, miserable thing!" And the other condoled with him, saying: "Yea, verily, my Brother! But, come thou and dine at mine house and I will introduce thee unto a Sweet Girl." For thus do the Safety-Hooked seek always to lure the Unhooked into the matrimonial net. And because it was the month of roses and romance, and moonlight and midsummer weariness, the Bachelor I forgot his judgment and consented, j For his soul was asop with sentiment I Now, as they turned their feet to ward the suburban trains, the Bache-. lor extended unto his friend a cigar. I it Voice From Sioux City, Iowa, says Worth Its Weight In Gold You cannot mistake the words of Mr. W. W, Northrup, of 908 Fourth Street, Sioux City, low. He is enthusiastic about his present health and the merits of FE-RU-NA and wants everyone to know it.

I smoke no more. My Wife doth not LIKE IT." Then the Bachelor said : "Lo, it is hot and dusty and I am athirst. Come with me for I know a place where the 2 per cent still floweth." But the Married Man protested, saying: "Nay, I prithee! I drink no more and we MUST NOT miss the five-fifteen!" Then the Bachelor sought to con verse of books and sports and he latest musical comedy; but he soon perceived that the Married Man knew them not and could talk only of lawn mowers and garden seed and golf. And when they came unto the house of the Married Man the Bach elor saw that all the shades were lift ed at the SAME height, and a rubber plant stood at the right and the left of the doorway. Then his soul sickened within him, and he raised his voice crying: "Help! Let me depart, I say. Nay, in vain is the lime spread in sight of the bird! All too plain, I see the mark of the COLLAR upon thy neck! "Farewell, farewell! For I never will be tied up in the back yard!" And he departed into the night, traveling so fast that he could not be seen for the dust of his running. And as he fled, the Married Man look ed after him, sighing: "Poor Boob! He knoweth not what he misseth the Slacker!" For there is no pity under heaven equal to that which the House Dog and the Free Wolf feel for each other! Selah. A LITTLE KNOCK A little hand came knocking on my door; "Let me turn in; I won't be bad no more!"

Morrow Tells Senate Committee Such a Combina tion Would Be Impossible .

A combina tion union.!; bituminous con I ocniioi to nniiiitiiin or tix prices docs mil "V ist siml would bo impossible if aticnifit I'd, J. I. A. Morrow, Vict- l'lesidcm of tin National Coal Association, told ilic .Senate subcommittee in Its first day's Inquiry here into the coal situation. Prices nl the mine, Mr. Morrow added, have declined under the competition which prevails and are lower now than they were n j ear n. "There are about 5,IXX) separate com mercial producers operating approxi mately 7,(KH mines, from which In Juiuinous coal is regularly shipped," Mr. Morrow said. "In addition iliero are some 2,(HM operators with about H,(HK) mines, who bt'jfln producing and tsellinj; coal whenever the price ),roes up a little and offers a profit to them. Thus in 1P17 coal production was re ported to the I'niled Slates (i( nlophal Survey from 10,(i.'U mines. Moreover, there are hundreds of thousands of acres of coal lands alomj railroads on which new mines cm be readily and quickly opened liy any one so disposed, "Such a condition obviously does not lend Itself to restrictive combinations union? producers. In addition the op erators of each minim: field are sub ject to competition from the producers of other lields, so that buyers have many different, sources df supply avail able to 1 1 1 -II i . "Anyone who alleges thai there is a nation-wide combination among bitu minous coal producers when these are the conditions id bituminous coal pro duction and distribution, merely ad vertises his own ignorance, or convicts himself of deliberate and vicious mis statements. "Of the ji.tNMI separate bituminous coal producers in the 1'nited States, L',14, Mpiirpxitnatcly -l-r per cent, bold membership -In the National Coal As sociation. 4 They produce hIhiii' sixty per cent of the total output of bitumin ous in the country. "Charge flint the National Coal As. social ion jht a combination to maintain prices nrwtCiout foundation In facts. Tliey doip!h?ss proceed simply from Ignorancef )ts purpose and activities. The Natiifiitij Coal Association neither buys norsePs coal: neither does It have anytlHn w hatev er to do with tin; prices whirt'its members ask or sell at, nor with the territory into which they ship their coal, nor the quantity Which they produce." Mr. Morrow stated that bituminous coal prices have declined since the armistice, and in general are lower than the prices fixed by the United States Unci Administration. He sub mitted charts to the committee graph ically show ing the prices which bitum inous coal sold al the mines In differ ent districts of the United States from April I to August 1, l'.il'.i. In connec tion with these charts Mr. Morrow ex plained Mini when the price restric tions of the Fuel Administration were removed on l-'ebriuiry 1 last, the bel ter, more desirable coals went lo a pre mium in ihe open competitive market Htid the less desirable coals declined In price. This was the action lo he ex pected, be said, in a market where t lie buyer exercises his choice and can ob tain the kind he prefers. As a result, Instead of the uniform prices in diller ent distrii c-, which were fixed by the I'niled Slates Fuel Administration, prices' promptly spread out, some coal going higher and some lower than they had been. "Meant hue," Mr. Morrow said, "the cost of producing bituminous coal is higher now than ii was a year ago, due to the fact l hat the mines then were operating six days a week and in many oases now are operating only four days per week, ami in some cases only three days per w eek. The overhead expense of maintaining mines goes on just the same whether coal is produced or not. These idle day expenses have resulted In Increased costs per (oik as com pared wilh last year. When these in creased cos's arc considered in coniiee ncclion wiib llie general decrease in prices, it is clear thai profits of bitum inous coal operators are materially less than a year ago." Kefcrriiig lo statements by Kepre seiitalive lluddli'ston of Alabama, 1)! reclor (ieiiera! Nines of the Railroad ailmiiiis: ra I ion and others, to the ef fect iliai bituminous coal prices at the mines are unduly high, Mr. Morrow said: "I wisli to deny publicly and emphatically these allegations (hat bi tuminous coal prices are being main tained in some improper manner and are unduly high. I am convinced thai these sla'cinetits proe-ed simply from a lack of understanding of the facts." Mr, Morrow drew comparisons be tween the prices of bituminous coats at the mines in the United States and foreign countries. "Prices at the mines In Creat Brit ain," he said, "are about three times the mine prices prevalent in the United Slates: In France the mine prices are more than three arid a half times those of the United Stares. Kngrlsh mine prices range from SO.!! to K7.1! per ton, while bituminous coal in France is costing about SS.Td per ton at the mines. The average mine price of bi tuminous coul sold in the United State is In the neighborhood of $2. !0 per ton." DAILY SUN WANT ADS PAY. NEW YORK. "View the city from the air," is the latest here.
