COAL consumers frequently desire to
use the old supply before putting
more in the cellar.
When coal bins are practically empty you
don't want to wait an indefinite time for
your new supply. You want to know when
the coal will come, so that you may attend
to more important duties than wait for the
driver to arrive.
We own 88 head of horses for use in
Harrisburg. Furthermore, we operate three
large coal yards—one on Allison Hill at
Fifteenth and Chestnut streets, the second
"in the heart of the City" at Forster and
Cowden streets and the third uptown at
Seventh and Woodbine streets.
Plenty of horses and wagons, yards ad
vantageously placed, enables us to
usually deliver an order the same day it
is received.

the use of their armies against
what some of them regard as only

Waiting Attitutdc Is I.ikoly
• Present indications are, however,

Truce to Reassure French
If the Germans observe the new
armistice terms now being framed,
involving disarmament of all but a
sufficient number of soldiers to pre
