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. When the demand for coal comes it
will tax every dealer in the city to capacity. You can figure out
what this means in an emergency. Why delay longer? Get your
coal now and be on the safe side.
