Anthracite Coal
I A Good Investment
The coal operators have issued their price
circular which calls for an advance of 10c per
ton each month from May 1 to September 1
The man who has money to invest in coal has a perfect
ly safe investment and a good return (about 1 0 per cent.)
on the money which he will employ in buying coal at the
low price, and keeping it until needed in the fall.
Coal is one of the safest possible investments. Its earn-
ling is absolutely sure. It can be put into your house; will
not fire on the pile; will not lose any of its value by sum- ,
mer storage and will be worth good gold dollars next fall \
—even more than it is to-day.
Anthracite Coal is therefore a perfectly safe investment
for the man of wealth as well as the small consumer. j j
Aside from the saving in price, anthracite coal is much
better quality when mined, shipped and delivered during '
the warm spring and summer months. \
Phone lis to-day, we take qood care of tele- '
phone business. operate coal yards on the
P. It. It. and P. & It. R. It., thus permitting us \
to handle a large slock, also many varieties.

j tjoard would be composed of the

| would have authority to review all
i salaries and increases where it is
j desirable, so that situations which
j prevailed during the war and at
| other times where men receiving
I ow salaries fixed by law, left State
service to enter business.
A number of bills have been oc
cupying attention in the House for
increases of pay for various grades
of attaches of the Department of
Public Grounds and Buildings, in
spectors of the Department of Labor
and Industry and other branches.
These bills will probably not go
much farther.
w Patent Bill—Considerable in
| lerest is being shown by legislators
I from counties bordering on the Sus
quehanna river in a bill presented
, to the Senate by Senator Augustus
I I'• Daix, Jr., Philadelphia, which
provides an amendment to the act
of 1913, and stipulates that when,
jas a result of operations by the
I united States Government. the
| course of a stream is altered and
I parts of the former bed become un
necessary to be classed as the stream
I proper, these portions can be de
clare abandoned and subject to pat-
I enting.
Ruling on Insurance—Automobiles
owned by the State Highway De
j partment are insured In the State's
own fire insurance fund, and it
i would not be lawful for the depart
| ment or any one else to insure them
jon behalf of the State any other
way, according to an opinion given
by Deputy Attorney General Emer
son Collins to Auditor General
Charles A. Snyder to-day. In the
same opinion he holds that insur
ance against theft of State cars 1s
not provided by the State's own in
suianee fund, but must be carried
outside. This decision will affect a
number of automobiles, as the num
ber owned by the State and used by
men connected with the departments
is increasing.
Bant Early Work—Numerous re
quests for early work on improve
ment of State highways throughout
| fhe State, including repairs and
changes, were made yesterday after
j noon to State Highway Commission
er Lewis S. Sadler and assurance
given that things would be handled
promptly. The requests were made
for work to be started on Northun
berland. Lehigh. Dauphin, Bedford,
Somerset and other roads. The Bed
ford proposition was brought up by
Senator John S. Miller and Simon H.
Sell and A. G. Fowler, the latter two
of Evitt's Creek, who also said that
stone would be furnished free for an
improvement by quarry owners.
This delegation suggested a change
• in line of the road from Bedford to
J the Maryland line in vicinity of Pa
| tience. To this delegation, as to
i Washington county legislators who
I asked a change in route of the road
from Washington to Waynesboro,
the Commissioner said that changes
were matters for the Legislature and
the Governor. Surveys will be made
where necessary to ascertain condi
tions. Senator H. W. Schantz. of
asked for work on roads be
tween Emaus and Allentown and
near Slatington, the latter being in
the second year program.

ports coming here from the meeting
of the State sufTragists association
at Philadelphia yesterday the mem

second reading calendar.
