No -lose estimate c»n be made as to-car supplies at the coke works this week 13 there is only fragmentary information, but on the whole the sup- jlies at the coke works this week ire believed to be distln«tly better. iVh»ther the coke is moved, however, s another matter. The steel mills j IU.VB been having some experiences vlonf that line during the embargoes .hat have been, in «ttect as to the re- ieipt ot freight for the majority of wlnts. They have loaded , a great nonr cars that cannot be moved auu her* U an Issue as to whether or lot demurrage is due. In the case of ·oKe this question does not arise as o!ce is not embargoed. The Wast furnaces are pegging .lonj about the same gait as formerly, a the whole, which .means that apart rota a few plants that are supplied ritb. by-product coke the steel works urnaces are operating at an avenige f about 60 per cent of capacity while be merchant furnaces may be doing lose to "0 per cent. The»e are the utaide estimates. While the furnaces cpondtee on by-product coke are on ne whole better supplied than those spending on coke that must be stup- ed from a diatance,.they are not fully implied by any means, as there has eeu much, difficulty in moving coal Iso. Shipvins conditions have grown 30 ad that coke supply is no longer the omiaant {actor in steel works opera- on. Th» time was, and it wag a per- d of many months, that the produc- on oi s*«l hung upon the supply of ig iron, and that in turn upon tlte ipply ot coke, but norv, while the COKJB TKAIE SI MMAJO.

MAZOLA This pore oil from corn fot shortening and all general cooking improves food guality-r-anA saves animal fats'. I T has taken American ingenuity to solve the fat problem--to find a practical, wholesome vegetable oil for shortening, deep frying, sauteing--something that will enable us to save butter, lard and suet. The result is Mazola--a pure, wholesome oil refined from g61den American corn. M Mazola his taken the place of the old cooking; mediums--Because housewives find that it gives more satisfactory results. And since Mazola is a vtgciMc nil it makes it easy for them to follow the plans of Food Administrator Hoover. Mazola is economical--not one single drop is wasted--k can be used over and over again as it does noc transmit taste or odor from one food to another. Get Mazola from your grocer in pint, quart, half-gallon or gallon tins. The large sizes jpvc greatest economy. Also aslc for the frce_Mazola Book of Recipes--or write u»^ direct.
