It's Quality That Counts
In coal it's quality that makes
heat, it'B quality that retains it,
it is qvality that makes possible
consumption of 90 per cent of the
ombustible part of it, leaving a
light, clean ash ; lastly, it's qual
ity that lessens your fuel bills t
your're no paying for dirt, refute
or nnburnables. The coal we
handle, both hard and soft, de
serves all the good things we and
our patrons say for it. A ton will
talk ss loudly as a carload.
