MOUNT PLEASANT, May 11.--The trglars who have been' terrorizing t. Pleasant for about a week were work early last evening at 7.30 clock, when Mrs. .Harrison; who lives ?xt door to George Williams, in 'ashington avenue, saw three men ying to force an entrance into the illiams house. The matter was .re- rted to the police but they were un- ·le to find any person. A little later a summons came from e east end of town, whert a maa waa ying to get in tbe house.

CORING OF COAL IS URGED BY DIRECTOR OF DISTRIBUTION henrise Sert Winter's Shortage Wfll Be Worse Than last; the Sttution Becoming Grate. A. W. Galloway, director of' bitu- aous coal distribution for the Fuel Ministration, during a visit to Pltts- rg last week made some statements iicattne that th'e coal situation is using no little uneasiness to those ncerned in directing the work o£ the el Administration. 'Tha bituminous coal situation in '. United States," he said, "is a very ave one. In order to meet the re- irements forced on this country by 5 war, we must produce and market next April at least 600,000,000 tons bituminous coal^ or 60,000,000 more ui were produced during the fiscal ir ended March 31, 1918. In fact, meet the requirements of this coun- · there must be 78,000,000 more tons bituminous coal produced in this jntry this year tiian there were in .7; 8,000,000 more tons for the New gland district; 2,5,100,000' more .'or ! districts . east of Harrisburg, not counting New England, and the rest of the country will need the rest. In the city of Washington alone 50 carloads of coal more a day arc being used than there were this time last yep-. "Just now the industries of the country, including the railroads, the steamship transportation lines, ia niu- i nition factories, iron and steel plants, i have only sufficient coal to keep them ruaning. Unless provision is made between, now and \vhen cold weather sets in, the coal shortage of this country will be far worse than it was last year. "This shortage can be prevented by storage of coal now in large quanti- , ties. This should be done by every- :,. body and especially by the officials 'of I jj the cities and towns. Every bushel Ui of coal possible should be hauled from j' 1 the mines by wagons and trucks, so that the railroad cars may be utilized in transporting coal to distant industries. "I look for this war to continue for another year at least, and to win we have got to arise to every"emergeiicy, and one of tbe most important fac- I ! tors in our winning will be fuel, not |. only for our own industries, but those of our Allies. It has been reported to me that the wagon-mine operators of j the Pittsburg district are willing to take a less price at the mines than j 53.12 a ton for their coal in order to I keep their mines in operation this ! summer and next fall. I hope the 1 public will patronize such operators '· all they can, for it will be a positive ' disaster if those mine% are forced to 1 close."

THE REASON WO PRICES AKE PREVTEB JJf THIS ADVERTISEMENT is because the different department heads are so tmsy that it was impossible for them to give details about the additional merchandise, the valtie:. the prices, etc.. in time for this paper going to press. One department manaeer probably voiced the sentiments of the entire store when he said: "What's tiie us of publishing prices when every item is a dead-sure out-and- out bargain."
