to save money is to put it in a bank.
PUT IT IN OURS.
It is not what you might have saved, that counts, it is what you
did not save.
Remember, when you spend a dollar foolishly, you may be helping
another man place his foot above your own interests.
The great game is to slave and to get.
A great game is to SAVE.

ITTEMPT TO WARD
Off COAL FAMINE
Dil-Burning Boilers Installed at Wil
CANNOT GUARANTEE FUEL
Lack of Ships and Men Given as Rea
son for Not Being Able to Fill
Washington, Nov. 30.-Washingtons
rsfit attempt to ward off the threat
med bituminous coal famine by in
italling oil-burning boilers in big
plants of the city received a serious
setback when it was learned today
hat not one oil company could guar- ,
intee shipment of oil sufficient to
neet the need.
It is generally admitted that the U
installation of oil-burning boilers to U
replace those fed with coal would, in
the long run, mean a considerable
saving in labor, cleanliness and
health to the community at large.
And it would entirely eliminate the
bugbear now hovering threateningly
aver the great power houses and
manufacturing establishments-a coal
But when the executive board of N
the Potomac Electric Power Com
pany, which supplies the entire city U
with electric light, tried to find one
company selling Mexican fuel oil n
that would guarantee the shipment of
oil suflicient to meet the daily needs
of the big plant, not one could be U
found, according to oflicial; of the
Reasons for Shortage.
Shipping difliculties--the lack of
ships and men-are said to he re
sponsible for the inability of the oil
interests to get a proper supply of M
fuel oil to this city. Despite this U
fact, cities like New York, Providence i
Fall River and Boston are using fuel
oil almost exclusively, and seem to be
able to get a good supply.
Local manufacturers, officials of the
Potomac Electric Power Company
and heads of the District government
are heartily in accord with the idea
of installing oil-hurhing hollers
wherever possible. All they need is
assurance from the oil interests that
they will be supplied with enough oil
to meet their demands.
Supt. Sinclair Statement.
L. E. Sinclair, general superintend
ent of the Potomac Electric, in dis
cussing the attempts made by officials
of the concern to contract for fuel
oil, said: 91
"Some time ago, when the threat
ened coal famine first loomed up, we
immediately thought of installing oil
burning boilers. We figured out the
expense it would probably cost us to
make the change, and we learned that
in otrdler to change fouri of our coal
fed boilers to oil burners it would
cost approximately $30,000. 4
"The matter was taken up with the
executive board of the company, the
neces: try permission of the District
commissioners and fire authorities ob
tained and we set to work planning
for the change. A fter a thorough
canvass of the big oil companies we4
learned that not, one would consent to
contract to fill orders in this city '
totaling more than 3,G00 barrels a '
