HOW TO USE BUCKWHEAT COAL FRIDAY'S MEETING AT ARMORY OPENS DRIVE Two Speakers from Over seas on the Program Fuel Administrator Jones Tells Ev erybody How to Handle It A Washington despatch says: "It has been demonstrated that in using stove cr larger sizes of anthracite coal in the larger sizes of heating plants, whether they are hot-air or low-pressure steam or hdt water, it is not only possible but it is beneficial to use a tioportion of No. 1 buck wheat. In some cases involving the use of egg and broken coal, it has been found that as high as 50 per cent can be used to the best sort of advantage." The larger the coal with which the buckwh.it is used and the stronger the draft the greater the proportion of "Buck" that can be used. In many plairts, buck can be used exclu sively, at least in moderate weather, and a mixture of 15 to 20 per cent of No. 1 buckwheat and bituminous coal can be burned successfully. It must not be mired with the coarser an thracite.. It must be used as a top dressing. In fur.uices, start the fire with the ! raise t least $170,500,000 in the United States to be used in war work REGISTRANTS SEPT. 12 CALEDONIA COUNTY ST. JOHNSBURY'S QUOTA IS $25,000 The Canvassers and All Others Invited to This Patriotic Gathering The cponing bombardment in the United War Wrork campaign will be gin at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon at the Armory.

Coakley St. Johnsburv larger cord in the usual manner and after! t i s well under way spread the buckwhea; over the center, being careful to leave the sides and back of the fire uncovered and free for draft. Do not close furnace until flame ap pears on top of the coal. In moderate weather tuck can be used each time the fire-pet it coaled. Weather con ditions Avdl affect the amount of buck th-.t (an be used, and especially when b.i iking at night. At least 25 per cent 01 buckwheat cen be burned, and by careful study and experiment it may be possible to increase the amount to 50 per cent or more. Learn the possibilities of your heating sys tem in this direction, and you will save money. No. 1 buck, when used as stats I, tends to hold the-fire and to aid in the proper and economic com bustion of the fuel. In stoves and ranges, lay a folded paper over the grate, leaving space for draft a-, the front, then start a shallow tire with the coarser coal as usual. When the fire is hot, spread buckwheat to a uniform depth of one or two irches, leaving the sides un covered and free for draft. The charred paper will stop the fine coal from siftinsr through the grate. Small amounts of coal should be added as the fire gets under way. Do not at tempt to fill the fire-pot at once. When shaking the fire, leave some ashes on the grates to prevent the fine coal from going through to the ash-pit. Special grates are not necessary.

Dear Mother: What w ill you say, but I've gone and enlisted, passed my examinations and am O. K. only a little fiat footed. Don;t feel bad, dearest Mother. When I think of my wife and baby, you and my sisters and all at home I cannot resist. I have to do my lit tle bit, ai u it will give Arthur a chance. I'm a big strapping cuss and it wili take more than the Huns' bulets to kill me, so don't worry," I'll fly to your aims as soon as this war is over, w hich will be soon after I get over there. I may noi be able to do much, but what I can do I'm willing even to i give my life if need be to help win this war. Pray for me, dear Mother, send me pictures, 1 11 return them later, and write oftener, and often think of your brave .soldier boy. Lawrence Lawrence w?as a young man who never i . bought of what might happen to him as long as he could do some thing to help someone else; he w-as happy in making someone else hap py. When a child at school he would give his lunch to other children who he thought needed it more than i he did, no one enjoyed life more than he did, and how willingly he gave it so as to help win ths war.
