When Buying Fuel
The conaumer must always figure on the ac
tual amount of heat and comfort that ia got
ten for the money spent.
We believe that our connections of long
standing, coupled with the large amount of
fuel that we buy, make it possible for us to
sell the very highest grades of Coal and Wood
at priees that are cbeapest to tbe consumer.
A trial order of our Coal and Wood, or an
opinion from some of our satu-ned customers,

Dapre*. the great but 111 favored
French tenor, was once walking from
the Grand Opera House ln Paris witb
the baritone Barollhet, who was not
an Apollo eltber. They happened to
meet Perrot, thedancer, a man of very
great ablllty, but short and thln and
so ugly that n manager onco said he
could never cttgage Perrot unlass for
the Jardln des Plantes (zoological gar
dens), as ho engaged no monkeys.
Perrot told them the story, and
when Duprcz laugbed at him Perrot
said: "Why, surely you need notlaugh.
If I am ugly I am certalnly not ao
ugly as elther of you."
"You monkey," sald Duprez, "thls
dlfference shall soon be settled." And.
seeing a stranger pass who appeared
to bea gentlemnn. "Monsleur," sald he.
"will you be so good aa to arbltrnte
In a little dlfference of opinion be?
"With pleasure," sald the stranger.
"If I can."
"Well," said Duprez, "Just look at
us and say whom you conslder to be
the ugllest of the three."
The gcntleman looked for some time
from one to the otber and tben sald.
"Gentlemen, I give it up; I cannot
posaibly declde." nnd went nway roar

Better Late Than Not st All.
The pastor of the little country church
had been much nnnoyed by having the
members ef his conc/regatlon atraggle
In long after the service had begun.
One Sunday morning, when he felt that
furtber forbearance with thls fault was
lmposslble, he decided to rebuke some
consplcuous offender. About twenty
mlnutes later than the proper hour
there entered a mlld mannered little
woman, one of the regular attendanta
of the church, but qulte incorriglblo ln
her tardlness. Tbe minister looked up,
fixed her with his spectacles and re
"Slster, you are very mucb behind
time. I hope you will not be ao late ln
getting Into heaven."
The little woman looked up, smlled
sweetly and without a trace of confu
slon replled placldly:
"I shan't care about that, doctor, so
long as 1 get there."
And now the pastor feels that the
gmlle that went round the church some

Chineaa and tho Morao Coda.
Dlfflcultles of tho Chinese language
wero ably demonstrated when the
problem arose of adaptlng it to tele
grapby. How was lt possible to apply
the Morse alphabet to a langnago
whlch has no alphabet at all, but con
sists of nearly 44,000 characters?
Then lt was lmposslble to treat Chi?
nese phonetlcally, writing down the
sound of the Chinese words in Euro
pcan letters and translating them Into
Morse dots and dashes, because no
Buch Bystem could deal with the Chi?
nese nlceties of lntonatlon. Tbe in
genlous solutlon came from a Danlsb
professor. Ile almply codlfled the
7,000 commonest Chinese characters,
represcntlng each hy numerals. Thus
the Chinese word for "cash" became
0030 ln the code, and the operator had
only to send the code signal for that

In Sudden Emergencies
like illness, it is often necessary
quickly to raise the temperature of ?
room. For instance, in those hours
between midnight and dawn, when
the day temperature has been allowed
to drop, if you are called upon to
get up, the room is chiiiy and cold.
It takes a long time to start up a
furnace or fire and raise the tempera?
ture by ordinary means.
