When Yon Need Coal
And Cannot Get It
You have only yourself
to blame if you have such
an experience this Winter.
The movement of crops j
is impending. When that
begins the opportunity to
make up the shortage in
coal will be gone. Cars
and motive power must be
shared with grain and other i
export products.
Coal cannot be stored at
the mines; its production
must keep pace with the ca- j
pacitv of cars turned over
to the mine operators, i
Cars cannot be sent "o the
mines unless the coal has
been ordered. The orders
must come from YOU—the
coal user.

Splendid Way To
Reduce Your Weight
There is perhaps no one thing that
so plainly shows the passing of our ]
youth as the horrible tendency to put
on too much weight after we have I
reached the age of 25 or 20 years. '
However young our faces may appear,
the sagging.„fiabby figure and forty
inch waist "gives us away."
The pause of this over stoutness is
that our stomachs convert the food |
we eat into fat because there is not ,
enough oxygen in the blood to pro
duce a proper combustion to destroy
the excess fatty tissue. Fat people
will be pleased to learn of a simple
borne method that is wonderfully ef
tlcient in reducing weight, quickly
and easily without a starving diet. ;
violent massage or strenuous exer- !
else. Go to any drugstore and get j
n box of Phynola: take five grains ;
after each meal and at bed time. This
treatment will often give quick re
lief from overburdening fat. • Phy- |
nola taken at meal time assists the
stomaeh in giving you tile benefit of ;
the food vou eat; at the same time
dissolves the fatty tissue from any
part of the body where there is ex
cessive fat. By this method many I
have reduced their weight a pound ,

Says Wealth Lies in

Edmonton, Alta., Sept. 27.
"Wealth beyond the world's
dreams lies unexploited in the Far
North," said Frank Perry. "I have
been over potash beds that in a
few years would pay off Canada's
war debt. The nitrates and phos
phates are richer than any in Ger
many. The country is full of coal,

Farmer's Institutes—State farm -

the first.week of December this year, |
according to an announcement made j
to-day at the State Department of j
! Agriculture. Heretofore they have
begun about the middle of Novem- |

old plan. Some of the points of I

ed making them more accessible. !
