chief addressed a personal letter to
each inspector calling attention to
the fact that "any lessening of pro

the great war work of the nation"
and that the inspectors are to do all
possible to keep production at the
maximum in their contact with op
erators, officials and miners.
"It is understood, of course," says
the letter, "that in almost everyone
of the 2,500 mines of the state ex

Save Your Hands From Cuts and Bruises
By Wearing the Brunier Hand Pad—soc
Something new for the steel worker—-the brick mason—the freight handler or
any man who does hard work—made of genuine tan leather—thick, yet pliable
saves gloves and protects the hands. ,
I preciative of the serious conditions
! that confront their beloved country
j and are bending every effort to help
the cause. However, the inspectors
will urge upon the workers the nec
essity for continuous, diligent work,
making clear to them that the part
they are playing is just as important
as the part of any othor man, wheth
er in an industrial occupation or In
the fighting foiyes at th<j front.
They should be made to realize that
it is just as patriotic to dig coal as
it is to dig a trench."
To Check Pollution. Steps to
call upon explosive factories to pro
vent discharge of wastes into
streams of the state because of the
fact that the pollution carries great
distances and kills many fish will
likely be taken at once. The plants
are engaged on government work,
but in the Susquehanna and other
streams fish wardens have found
abundant evidence of the killing of
bass and salmon by wastes. This
data will be laid before Commis
sioner of fisheries N. R. Buller for
action to-morrow.
Trout Sot Out.—The first trout to
bo "planted" in the streams of the
state the latter half of the year have
just been sent from state hatcheries
to a number of streams in the north
ern part of the state. The trout are
well grown and able to take care of
themselves. The state hatcheries
have also sent out numerous blue
gills. It is planned to keep the dis
tribution of trout going until the
weather becomes too cold.
To Hear Argument.—The Public
Service Commission will shortly hear
argument on the demurrer filed
against its orders for street railway
systems to furnish certificates of ex
cess fares to passengers paying the
increases which are now involved in
litigation before the commission.
Notice 011 Closing. The State
Game Commission will shortly issue
a general notice of the closing of
the state to the hunting of ruffed
grouse for a year. All of the coun
ties which are expected to file peti
tions for the closing as a means of
conservation of the game bird have
entered their papers. Steps to pro
pagate the grouse are being taken In
a score of counties.
McHcnry on Job—H. H. McHenry,
the new chief of the bureau of in
formation of the capitol has re
ported fo duty.
Siiiallp<r* Again—A new case of
smallpox has appeared in the Wlnd
ber district and state inspectors are
fe'lowing up the contacts.

Service commission discussed tho

Fares Attacked—The increase in
fares and the service of the Cumber
land railway and the Carlisle and
Mt. Holly Street railway were at
tacked in a complaint filed with the
Public Service Commission to-day by
citizens of Mt. Holly Springs, who
contended that the increase Of fares

the company had allowed its line,
cars and park to run down. The new

plaints of Scranton business firms.

more, calling on representative fam
illies in different parts of the city.
Information will be gathered from
the families regarding their annual!
expenditures for food, clothing, hous- J
ing. fuel, furniture and miscellaneous;

ed to be useful, not only to the gov- j
ernment but to the housewife as well, ]
enabling her to know exactly what,
she is getting for her money.
From data already gathered by the!
bureau an increase of three per cent.!
over the prices prevailing on June,

food articles a month later. Thej
prices of several articles decreased.'

one per cent., navy beans two per;
cent., and lard, lamb and coffee less;
than five-tenths of one per cent. |
A comparison of retail food prices!
I for July 15, 1918, with prices a year
previous to that date, shows for all
articles combined an increase of 16
per cent. Fresh beef and chicken
