Thi> Allegheny Coal Company of
Washington and Rosslyn maintains
an extensive yard in the Virginia
town employing many men. Its local
sales department under Mr. Mcintosh
of Clarendon has managed to keep
things humming and coal moving in
a creditable manner even during the
so called slack period.
Maynard C. Murrell, President, is
a progressive Washingtonian, who be
lieves in boosting the prosperity of the
section in which he does business. "A
Boost for a Bigger and Better Ros
slyn," means a boost for a bigger and
better business for us and everyone
else doing business in that section,"
stated Mr. Murrell when interviewed
regarding the Publicity Edition of
the Alexandria Gazette.
And while we are talking about
boosting we will say that The Alle
gheny Company has some boosters
on its list of customers. According
to several large consumers in the Vir
ginia territory their coal is clean, free
from slate, high in heat giving qual
ity and always 2,2-10 full pounds to
tho ton. And Mr. Mcintosh states
that this is a mighty good time to get
in your order for a new supply to
refil the depleted bin of the winter
season.
