How Many Kinds
Of Coal Are There?
That is a very hard question to answer.
We have a list in our office of more than >OO
mines and eollieries in Pennsylvania.
Some mines produce a very hard coal, others a
soft fracture coal and then there are many varieties
between the very hard and the very soft kind.
We have eone into the coal business very thor
oughly and we have scle -ted the kinds that we know
will jive the best results in this vicinity.
In order to keep a big variety of kinds we have
two large yards in this city.
