Certified Petroleum Coke burns without having any fish nor any clinker,
retroleum Coke is the Carbon Residuum of oil and when burning forms heat
producing gas which "combusts" perfectly.
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. By Increasing the quantity manufactured the cost of producing
our Petroleum Coke has been reduced.
We are quick to give YOU the advantage. At the $9.60 price Petroleum Coke is a distinctly
ECONOMICAL fuel as well as being luxuriously convenient to use.
We are not urging large purchases. But it is worth your while to TRY OUR PETROLEUM
COKE. Buy a half ton or a quarter ton and test it out In the cold weather due to come
almost any day now.
Be sure to get a copy of our "SUGGESTIONS
This will help you to test It fairly.
AS TO BURNING PETROLEUM COKE.
We will deliver 560 lbs. for
