II.. has bought Harry Sage's farm and will take possession next spring. The many friends of the family regret to learn of this sale and it is hoped Jthat the family will at least decide to remain in town. PRESENTS FUEL SITUATION. (Continued from Page One) The fuel question, as expounded by Mr. Daniels also was of much timely inter est. Mr. Daniels said that the yearly needs of the town were about 13,000 tons of hard coal. According to the Pennsylvania Fuel commission, our al lotment this winter will be 50 per cent of what we bought last year. On April 1, 1021, there were 3,000 tona of bard coal in the local dealers' bins ; this year at the same date there were less than 1,000 tons, partially due to the fact that the dealers found it unprofitable to pay taxes on coal which the listers taxed un der the law. Last vear, 11,000 tons were bought so that 50 per cent of this amount or 5,500 tons, will be our al lotment this winter. To Oct. 1. only 2,500 tons bad been delivered, whereas under normal conditions at least 50 per ! . M .!,.. . . 1 - , it-Hi ui me natural consumption oi coal should have been delivered by the first of this month. We have, therefore, an allotment of less than 4.000 tons more to be delivered for the balance of the year, which ends,' on April 1. In reality, we need 10,000 more tons. The situation is being somewhat re lieved. Mr. Daniels stated, by the use of soft coal "nd wood, which will cut down the use of coal this winter by 3.000 or 4.000 tons. However, it is impossible to see any way out of the dilenma of being 4,000 tons t-hort this winter. At the present time, dealers are very short of coal. East Wednesday, thete were only 30 tons of coal in the dealers' bins here in Brattleboro. This is a record that we have never had before and which we don't want to see again. However, we don't anticipate much trouble in keeping warm this winter if the people-will be honest. The local coal dealers. E. B. Barrows and E. I?. Yau vey, are honest in the delivery of coal, and if the people will be honest with the dealers as far as their wants are con cerned, there will be no difficulty. It is a good idea for everyone not to use bard coal at least before Nov. 1; use wood or something else. December, January and February will be cooler than November, so people should play safe and save their coal for the later months. Turning to the. question of wood. Mr. Daniels said that we must economize during this situation and burn more wood. Thus far, the local committee has not found it necessary to fix the price of wood, but a full cord was going to be in sisted upon and 15 is plenty to pav fin it. and this means good rock maple wod dried under cover. During the next 30 to 40 days. Mr. Daniels said, the situation regarding coal will probably be somewhat relieved as more coal cars will be released for use here in the East by the expiration of that time. Anyone, however, who really is in need of coal should make bis wants known to the local dealers who will do their best to take care of them. But boarding of coal will be prevented. There are many other communities that are just as badly off as Brattleboro. and in some towns the following regula tions have been put into effect: First: Not to use any bard coal be fore the 1st of November. Use wood or some other substitute. Second: No anthracite coal is to be delivered to any customer having on hand a supply of coal sufficient for 30 davs. Third: No anthiftcite delivery to a single customer -should be more than a 30-day supply: if a 30-day suppb" is less than a ton. one ton may be delivered. Fourth: To avoid duplication of or ders the committee directs the lo-al deal ers to deliver coal only to their regular customers. Fifth: We urge jieople to use soft coal, coke or wood whenever possible. There are no restrictions on this kind of fuel. . - The local fuel committee has n"t yet found it necessary to, rnfor"- thes ru! Migs. but people are urged to follow them, and in doing s everybody will be satisfactorily taken enre of and will feel ea'er and slee-i a little better. Th progrmn f'r this afternoon and tonight at the demonstration will con sist of concerts both this afternoon and evening. The exposition will close to night. GREENFIELD WOMAN WANTED. .Mrs. Minnie L.
