For four years we have watched the results of burning retroleum Coke in all sorts of furnaces. We have been unwilling to recommend it to our trade until we knew positively all about it. The experimental period has passed, Petro leum Coke is a SUCCESS. Scroonod Petroleum Cokov 59.50 Petroleum Coke comes in lumps varying in site from pieces. as small as your fist, or smalleT, up to chunks 12 inches in diameter. The largest pieces have to be brok en jsmall enough to enter the furnace door. It lias been the custom to furnish Petroleum Coke unscreened. We think it should be screened just as we screen all other house fuel. If you wish un screened Petroleum Coke we will furnish it at a still lower price but it is, in our judgment, better for you to buy the screened Petroleum Coke. Eren our careful delivery cannot prevent more or leas breakage when the coal Is shoveled Into your bin, for Petroleum Coke is brittle. The "crumble-dust" is all burnable, however, and should be thrown Into the fire as It accumulates. Reduction Today $1.00 a Ton The price until todar was $10.60.
