In order to encourage enrollment
in the school the government has ar-

Rush 800 Box Cars to Rudyard for Hay
Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., Jan. 22.-

issued for all railroads in the upper
peninsula of Michigan to rush 800 box
cars to Rudyard for hay. Just who
the hay is for is not known. The 800
cars will hold 10,400 tons.
Rudyard is one of the greatest hay
shipping points in the Middle West.
It is in the heart of Chippewa county,
from which more than $1,000,000 worth
of hay has been and will be exported
this season. More than 126,000 tons of
hay is sent from Cloverland yearly by
water and rail.

FUEL SCARCITY HINDERS
MANUFACTURE OF GOODS
SHIPMENTS STOPPED BY COLD
WEATHER; HARBORS FULL
The state of trade, according to
Bradstreet's, is tending to emerge from
the annual seasonal dullness. But cold
and stormy weather, and coal scarcity
have hindered shipping of all kinds,
and this, in turn, has caused slow-
ing down of manufacturing.
The fuel situation is apparently no
better from Chicago east to the coast,
and there is said to be an immense
congestion of freight at leading north
Atlantic ports, especially New York,
where the harbor is full of ships wait-
ing for coal to allow of sailing. Grain
shipments from Baltimore have been
impossible owing to the harbor being
iced bound. The sugar shortage is un-
relieved owing to ships that might be
used to carry Cuban supplies being un-
able to sail thence, and the reported
approach of another cold wave.
The iron and steel situation is like-
wise affected by the coal shortage, and
the large increase in unfilled orders
has a not altogether favorable side,
due to some of this being charged to
past paucity of fuel supplies.
