. J AGE EIGHT. fBE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVTLLE, PA. FRIDAY, JUNE 21, 191S. FURNACES RECEIVING ENOUGH COKE FOR REGULAR OPERATION ·No Crying Demand Eyen If Production Is Not Entirely Sufficient. LITHE COKE ON MARKET Awl That Only Foundry llTikh Finds ' Xorir S»le; Little Contracting 'is ' Being Done; No Present Likelihood ' _, of Changes in Prices After June 30. t - Special to The Weekly Courier ·'"· PITTSBURG, June 19. -- There is £[ general coalmen; in the coke trade '·'over the steadiness of production, ·, there beiog scarcely any var.ation K| Jrom day to day. Broadly spe.iking, i the production is not regarded as being altogether sufficient, and yet there is no crying demand from blast furnaces for coke. Apparently all the stacks in-b!ast are receiving sufficient $i 1'or. regular operation, but the major^ ity would: like to accumulate a little · surplus not only as a general prop- i osition, "but particularly at this time ' 10 carry them over the slackening in *' shipments that is expected at Inde'. pendence Day, aa usual. ', Coke operators are talking a great ' deal about labor conditions, and ex- f.-pxcss the opinion that Washington 1 hhould: devise means, drastic it neces- iary, to increase the performance ol 4aho^'. All observers agree that the Ab^et mt'.hod of approach would be tc fSlimicate or reduce the "booze" cou- -t.uo.ied, while otliei things could probably be done in addition. "- tuvnaco operations are about -tke- same as formerly, with a few -more furnaces blowing than a laonth Kgo. The Carnegie Steel company is '"·still operating 55 furnaces out e* 59. /The Clarrtou stack that has been expected to go into blast is not in yet. f" This amount of coke that Dnds its '"·way into the market is Mill verj lim- ~itea,~and nearly all that docs appeal -Is .foundry coke. This finds a ready -sale as many foundries are without -.contracts. There vill be more of this --class in a fortnight, as there is very little contracting being done, against the- co'ntracts that expire at the end -ot-tbis month. With the expiration ol -tese contracts a larger tonnage of 'foundry coke will naturally coma into '·the market. - Tie War. Industries Board will meet representatives of the iron and steel .·producers next -Friday, to discuss 'prices in connection with the fixing of "prices for the period after June 30, to -which the present prices extend. ""jSerc'is no likelihood that then' will 'lie any direct reference to coke, inasmuch as the Fuel Administration took over the control of coke prices, last fall. It is regarded as probabU that prices will not be changed in the next few months. The market re nains ^notable at the maximum limi's, as follo'vs: COKE TilAIK 3UMMAAY. The coke reprion Is moving along: at an even rate of production which i? about 7C 5 per cent of maximum capacity when operating on- a. iull time bcheaule. Such changes as occur being In the direction of improvement, no little encouragement ij? denve-l from that fact, although it is beginni: s to be rcalizcii that expectations or needs will not Iike- )j soon be met. Car troubles have been largely forgotten, the plant managers have comparative leisure in which to Study the labor situation . They don't need to msuke an investigation of thp causes underlying the disposition of thtj men to make only part time, 1 ke government investigators did recently, but they are concerned as to moans or measures to remote at least ^ome of the causes. ]n this connection mass meetings of the workers, addressed by speakers who have had close, actual contact with some phast of tl-c war or war work, -will prove helpful in bestirring the men to a real'Zition of the'r obligations. Knowing ful] well the cost of t h p complete loss of a day's operation, and what such a loss will mean at this time, there is- a growing sentiment In the replon to make a run on July Pourth ,nueacl of remaining idle as has been generally the custom in previous years Preparations would be made some days in advance so as 1 - to make a "shor* day," drawing and .charging the oveni at hours very much in advance of the usu-.l schedule and leaving the larger part of the day for recreation The nerves of the body are not nnlike the telegraph system at the Front. The_ miKiors of nerve filaments are like -a network of wires that keep all the trenches in close sympathy ant] communion. Food supplies and reinforcements are dispatched here and there and so the nerves send increased blood and nourishment rrhere it is most required. The nerve celis guide the heart and stomach. By this means the stream of blood laden with nourishment is sent to /every part of , the body. So it is that the blood feeds the , nerves. If blood is impoverished, we feel nervous--sleepless--"fidgety." The blood needs to be built up. If \va lack iron in, our blood, we aie pale, aaernic, with no vim. We are nervous or tired. The thing to do is to obtain fron your druggist the ney iron tonic, called "Irontic." This is the discovery of Dr. Pierce, of the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Insttute in Buffalo, N. Y. Try it no\v! Don't wait! Today is the day to begin. Put yourself in normal physical condition. If you like you can send lOc. to Dr. Pierce and gat a. trinj package. This "Irontic" is .1 roluble form of iron combined v/itli valuable herbal extracts rolled into a tablet that will give vou " pep," i teen to reduce greatly the force nec- i essary to produce the best results in | mining coal. "The Department of Mines has endeavored in every way to facilitate the output of coal, and has frequently urged the operators and miners to ao their utmost, but if the -workers arc to be taken a-way from the mines, it will be a physical impossibility to increase the tonnage or e^en maintain the present output."
