The German generals are being forced into battle by public clamor at home as the German soldiers are forced into battle by machine guns. The average man seldom knows all that other men thinks he knows, but the chances are he knows a few things he isn't suspected of knowing;. As usual, Hindenburg and the Hohenzuliern outfit are prepared to shed every drop of blood in the other fellow’s veins to break the Allies' lines.

These prices have been udiustcd by scientific and praciical investigation based upon uniform cost sheet reports to ir.sure the greatest possible stim ulation of production while main taining a reasonable and eijuiiaNe price ol coal lo the consumer. “P>y carefully drawn regulaiui'is, the Fuel .Xdminisiration ha^in^u^ed the shipment of‘clean coal' from the n^ine^. Coal contaming an undue amou u of foreign matter yiill be pcndUi.ed in pnce, and pro ducers uho lake e.xrraordinary measures in the preparation uf iheir coal will be recompensed. Tliese measures will kecpoH the railroads and out uf the bins ol tlie consum ers a large amount of unhurnable nuiierial which was included in last year’s coal production, “I'very etturt has been made by the I'uel Administration to so ar range the distribution of the cual supply that It w:il impose (he lea>t possible burden upon tiie railroads of tile country. Through the ^'onc system ot distribution, which be came eltective April 1, Ihe move ment of bituminous coal between the mine and the producer will be restricted to the shortest possible transportation lines consistent wit!i the maintenance of un adequate and proper coal supply to all consum ers. “In arranging these restrict.ons the Fuel Administration, in many cases, has allotted to consuming territory producing Helds which can only Hll ihe demand oF the con sumers they must supply, if pro duction is maintained steadily throughout the year. “The Fuel Administration ex pects the coal consumers, continu ing their patriotic co-operation with the Government in all its war measures, to maintain a steady and constant demand for coal in order to attain this result. Consuiners must buy their winter supply of coal during the spring and summer for storage during the winter if the production is to be maintained at a maximum and the country enabled to avoid a serious coal shortage this winter. The Fuel Adminis tration will CO operate with all communities in an effort to provide storage for emergency stocks of coal to be set aside during the spring and summer to meei the emergencies of weather and trans portation which may arise next winter. “Hut the great storage capacity of the country lies in the bins of the individual consumer, and there the country’s coal reserve must be built up during the spring and sum mer when coal production is un hindered and the transportation fa cilities of the country operating at their highest efficiency. “As an inducement to ‘early buying’ the prices of anthracite coal have been reduced 30 cents a ton on all domestic sizes from April 1 to August 31, and in many of the bituminous fields prices have been cut to an even greater extent. “To safeguard the consumer the Fuel Administration has prescribed regulations to prevent profiteering and to govern the distribution of coai by licensed jobbers and by re tailers. l-ach domestic consumer will be permitted to secure a full normal supply of coal, but no m»n-e. ‘ I'very ton of eoal that is hoard ed against future needs and is not nv.-.! dunnq the "imri actual UMMi- riie l.ih -r ,n\l 'rtM'p.irn- M"’ lued I" bung ihe e hI : * t’le e^Mi-'Uiii.T and Mu i. ni il e:u rg\ of the Cual lt^ell .ire \uiliikKI fruiii dnmg their pm towardsp^oily vic tory ^‘.onsumeis should secure liisi a little less co.il than they be hove they need and >h\mld make e\ery shovelful give iis full value in heat and power.

No man should leave without understanding what he should do ill regard (o the allotmeni of his wages and what his privileges are with regard to securing the gov ernment allowance for his family. 2. Every man should understand fully the insurance law. It is es pecially iinpurtant that single men should secure this insurance, as in case of being permanently incapac itated for military duty, il will take care of them for life. 3. livery man ought to know that he can write to the Red Cross if he is anxious about his family or any of his affairs at home. 4. It is also very important lhat men should leave power of aitor- ney with some one; that they write home promptly on arrival at camp; that they make their wills; keep in close touch with their home folks, and that they acquaint (heir fami lies with their official number as soon as it is assigned to them. 5.
