I Don't Blame The Coal Dealer It's not always his fault if your coal will not give good results. Nine times out of ten you are burn ing the wrong kind and size. One size and kind of coal will not give good satisfactory results under every condition. If the kind you are now using does not burn as it should the thing to do is to try another size. We find people that no difference how many times they move, why, they order the same kind of coal and then expect it to burn in one house just like it did where they lived before. It seldom does burn the same Let us advise you the kind to buy. United Ice & Coal Co.
