FOUR THE CLINTON (ILLINOIS) MORNING JOURNAL SUNDAY, MAY 1, 1921. HAD GIVEN UP HOPE SAYS DECATUR WOMAN Never Dreamed Any Medicine Could Help Her Like Taniac Has Now As Well As Ever, Declares "I never dreamed any medicine could help me like Taniac has," said Mrs. Lilite Herman of 408 North Broadway, Decatur, Ill. three years I suffered untold agony from rheumatism in the right side of my body, and my arm and legs would get so stiff and swell up so bad I could hardly use them, and my arm was so stiff I could not comb my hair. "My stomach was in such a bad condition that everything I ate soured and gas bloated me, until was perfectly miserable.

At times there were, pains in my right side and in my back that nearly drove me wild. My liver did not act and I became so business at Mahomet, Ill. For a number of years Mr. Dale conducted a bil-1 liard hall in the building recently removed from the corner of North Center street with the public square. Oscar Woodward of California owned the building and a lot next to it on the east, and offered to sell Mr.

Dale the two lots, together with the building, for a few hundred dollars, but Mr. Dale thought the price too high. He is now making his home in St Joseph, Mo.

She was the mother of three Doris and Ruth who survive their mother land Maxine who died 1 two years ago. I bilious that often I was so dizzy that everything seemed like it was whirling Around. I slept scarcely at all at night, for my nerves were all Unstrung. My whole system was completely run-down. I lost 80 much weight that I was only a shadow of my former self and had hardly any strength at all.

"I took a lot of different medicines and a number of special treatments but kept getting weaker every day. finally decided to try Tanlac and after taking it for a week I noticed I was getting stronger and the pains were less severe. I have now taken tive bottles and the rheumatism has completely left me, my stomach trouble has disappeared and I eat whatever I want without suffering, The pains in my back and the biliousness are gone and I am as well as ever was. I never have an ache or pain and I praise Tanlac for it all." Deceased is survived by her husband and two children, her parents, four sisters and five brothers.

J. Conroy and daughter Ruth of this. city were shoppers in Decatur Saturday. Illinois Central System Sounds a Warning Of Impending Coal Shortage It is earnestly to be hoped that coal dealers and consumers have not forgotten the lessons taught by coal shortages of recent years, particularly the one of 1920. These shortages were produced largely by dealers and consumers themselves in not beginning to buy and store coal in adequate volume until late in the year.

It is clear that unless coal dealers and consumers profit by the lessons of the past and begin at once to lay in necessary fall and winter supplies another coal shortage will be brought about. As a result of the shortage of coal in 1920, the Interstate Commerce Commission was forced to require the railways to furnish open top cars preferentially for the handling of coal from June 19 to November 29 in order to prevent suffering in various parts of the country. Open top cars are also used for carrying building and highway construction materials, and one of the effects of diverting open top cars to the coal traffic last year was the postponement of construction work that was vitally needed. It would be most unfortunate if this action, which was highly necessary last year. should be made necessary again this year.

The housing and other construction which depend largely upon the use of open top cars are too imperative to be, delayed by a congestion of coal traffic that can be avoided by the immediate movement of coal on a large scale. The coal-carrying equipment of the railways is sufficient to handle a large evenlybalanced coal tonnage, but it is inadequate to handle the coal movement when the bulk of it is thrown upon the railways in a comparatively short period after midsummer. For the last five years the total annual output of bituminous coal in the United States, in tons, was as follows: 1916... .502,519,682 1917... 551,790,563 1918.

..579,385,820 1919... 458,063,160 1920.... 556,563,000 The strike of the coal miners which lasted from November I to December 15, 1919, had a paralyzing effect on the coal output for that year, and the strike of railway switchmen, which was in effect from April 8 to August 1, 1920, likewise affected the coal output for 1920. During the first six months of 1920, the output of bituminous coal was 261.760,750 tons, or at the rate of 43,626,791 tons for a month. During the first three months of 1921 the average monthly output was only about 32,750,000 tons, and it is estimated that the April output did not exceed 000.006 tons.

If the April figures should not be exceeded in May and June, the coal movement for the first six months of 1921 would amount to approximately 176,000,000 tons, a decrease of more than 85,000,000 tons, as compared with the actual output for the first six months of 1920. This would mean that the mines would have to produce, and the railways would have to move, more than 380.000,000 tons during the latter half of the year to equal the record of coal production for the year 1920 when there was a shortage. To accomplish that would not only overtax the coal-carrying capacity of the railways, but would overtax the mines, probably resulting in higher prices of coal. Coal can be purchased and moved more cheaply during spring and early summer than later. Delay in purchasing and storing coal at points of consumption makes for higher prices during the time of heavy movement.

There is now practically no surplus of bituminous coal above ground anywhere in the United States. Coal nine operators are now in a position to produce, and the railways are in a position to move, large volume of coal. It dealers and consumers tail to take advantage of the present opportunity to lay in tall and winter supplies, and another coal shortage eventuates, the public in fairness certainly will not attach blame to the coal operators and the railways. More than 255,000 open top cars are now standing idle on the side-tracks of the railways. Nearly one half of the open top equipment of the Illinois Central System is idle.

The situation, as we visualize it. is that the country is headed for a serious coal shortage unless immediately start. moying coal in large volume. We are emerging from the business depression. few months the railways may be taxed to their capacity in handling traffic other than coal The Illinois Central System, as one of the largest coal-carrying roads in the Middle West, considers it's duty to sound this warning.

Constructive criticism and suggestions are invited. C. H. MARKHAM, President, Illinois, Central System. Piggly-Wiggly 213 E.
