Why Don't You Treat Your Coal Dealer as a Specialist The coal dealer buys tons of coal where you buy buckets ful. Is he not in a better position to keep in touch with the coal market than the average consumer? Is it not, then, a sensible thing to consider him as a SPECIALIST in his line, and take his judgment in preference to any other? WE RELIEVE YOU WILL SAVE MONEY if you take advantage of present prices on coal. It is our sincere opinion that later quotations on coal will be some higher. We stiongly urge buying now while these prices are still in effect. PRESENT PRICES ARE AS FOLLOWS: (Best grades, well screened and delivered in the city) Colorado Lump 15.50 Colorado Nut $14.50 Kirby Lump 313.00 Kirby Egg Nut $12.50 Kirby Nut $12.50 Sheridan Lump $11.50 Kirby Chestnut or Pea $ 9.G0 All grades $1.00 per ton less at our bins. Special Prices on Car Loads. PLACE YOUR ORDER NOW" BEFORE COLD WEATHER Not in the past five years has so little coal been stored in Alli ance as is stored this summer.
