extend In through the hut furnace, down
underneath and com up out In front,
where they pats beneath big hoppers,
which are filled with coat.
An aa they pass underneath they take t
of the coal and proceed with It Into the
furnace again. These Iron link belts
are operated by a little engine and a
worm gear arrangement, ao that It Is
entirely automatic in every respect. All
the attendant lias to do Is haul the coal j
In and keep the hoppers full.

THE appointments of a fine hotel
are an important part of its per

pleases. Not alone because of its well
chosen shapes and decoration, but just
as much because its patterns are de

Syracuse China has more than the
usual sterling qualities of fine china

many exclusive patterns as well as
