DARKEN SIGNS TO
SAVE NATION'S FUEL
Government Issues Order Lim
iting Use of Coal for Electric
Display Advertising to
Specified Hours. '
(By Associated Press.)
Wsahington, Nov. 10. The govern
ment's first move towards eliminating
nonessential industries to save coal
was made tonight in an order by the
fuel administrator limiting the use of
fuel for electric display advertising to
the hours between 7:45 and 11 o'clock
p. m. A score of other industries will
be affected by similar orders that will
be issued as soon as a complete classi
fication is made.
Faced by the realization that coal
production cannot keep pace with the
present rate of consumption the fuel
administration is ready if necessary to
guarantee supplies only for domestic
users and industries either necessary
in the conduct of the war or vital to
Save 50 Per Cent.
It is estimated that the limiting of
electric advertising to three and a
quarter hours each night will save 50
per cent of the fuel now used in main
taining the siens. that light Broadway
in New York City and hundreds of j
less famous thoroughfares in towns
throughout the country. In a state
ment accompanying today's order the
intimation is carried that it may be
come necessary to eliminate electric
Exception was made in the order for
signs maintained by small merchants
for the purpose of directing the public
to their places of business. If these are
not of unreasonable size they will be
permitted to continue lighted while
the establishments are open for busi
ness, but must be dark with the clos
ing of shops.
Experts say that about 250,000 tons
of coal are used annually for the oper
ation of display signs. This amount, it
is estimated, would keep 100,000 fam
ilies warm during the winter months.
Gas Men Approve.
A committee of gas and electric
service companies co-operated with
the fuel administration in framing the
order and gave full approval to its
The fuel administration's plans for
cutting down the supplies of coal to
nonessential industries were outlined
tonight by Fuel Administrator Gar
field in this statement:
"Action will be taken in the imme
diate future in curtailing shipments
to plants using coal in the manufac
ture of nonessential. This will be
undertaken by the curtailment, rather
than by elimination in order that the
general situation will be disturbed as
little as possible. The improvement in
transportation which must be accom
plished, together with the curtailment
of shipments to certain industries, will
provide a sufficient amount of coal for
railroads, munitions plants, public
utilities and domestic requirements.
Reduce) Freight Traffic.
"The transportation situation can be
relieved only by reduction in the
amount of freight the roads shall be
cslled upon to handle. The reduction
of coal shipments willaccomplish this,
in that it will remove from the rails
the percentage of coal covered by
such reduction and will accomplish a
proportionate reduction in the amount
of products to be. removed as a re

Editor Proposes New Plan
For Insurance of Soldiers
Aberdeen, S. D., Nov. 10. (Special.)
A. E. Chamberlain of the Dakota
Farmer has evolved a method of help
ing the soldiers and sailors to keep
their lives insured for the benefit of
their dependent relatives or families
that is thought to be practicable, lie
has written President Wilson, mem
bers of the war insurance board, Sec
retary McAdoo, Cjuartcrmaster Gin
eral Crowder and others, suggesting
that instead of the price of the insur
ance on the lives of soldiers and sail
ors being taken out of their pay, as
the soldiers' and sailors' insurance
law provides, American citizens be
granted the privilege of keeping up
such insurance. By the terms of the
law $8 pays for $1,000 of b'fe insurance
for a soldier or sailor. Mr. Chamber
lain himself expresses a desire to pay
for at least $5,000 worth of insurance
each for two soldiers, and he sug
gests that enough other Americans
would be willing and even eager to
do the same thing, to keep up the life
insurance policies of every soldier and
sailor in the service of the country, or
at least of those who, for lack of
means outside of their pay, might be
hard put to it to spare the necessary
amount from their pay.
Head Russ Baltic Fleet Says

Conservatism is a brake it says "go slow."
Conservatism is cowardly it fears the possibility of mak

True, Triumph is often preceded by mistakes but con

To this day respectable and respected Dentists of the
"old school" are hammering gold fillings into tooth cavities,
torturing their patients hour after hour because they are
not sure that the modern method of gold inlay is better.
Many well fed and well bred "private" dentists are
charging $50 to $100 for plates (which they require a week tov
complete), which I turn out in a single day for less than
half their charges. Patients are cither subjected to unneces

cost of $5 per tooth because the Conservative Dentist has al
ways been too conservative to investigate modern methods.
Had every Dentist been as much "afraid of the dark" as

anaesthetic would never have been attempted and the bene
fits of this safe and painless method of extracting teeth would

I am always willing to be guided by "the lamp of etperi
ence," but I never did believe its rays were confined to the

which would enable me to give my patients more satisfactory
