British A ristocracy setting splendid Exam ple in Econom y by using “ A N T H R A N IT E .” SPECIAL TEST OFFER TO READERS. O w ing to the perseverance of certain researches, it has now becom e possible to deliver to you, post free a t you r own house, a co al-sa v in g and intensifying substance of such w onderful efficiency th at it m akes a scuttle of coal last as long as tw o would in the ordin ary w a y , w hilst it also im proves the coal so m uch th a t the heat throw n out is con­ siderably greater, th at cheap coal or a m ixture of coal and coke m ay be used where high-grade coal w as for­ m erly necessary. ANTHRANISED COAL IS OF DOUBLE STRENGTH. Anthranite, as the new substance is called, decreases the coal bill of an y flat, house, apartm ent, facto ry, hos­ pital or other building b y o n e -h a lf or more, so th at it is easy for a n y Coal User to save from £ 2 to £20 during the next few months according to ordinary rate of his coal consum ption. Coal w hich has once been " A n - thranised ” retains its double strength for ever, and the process of treatin g the fuel is so perfectly sim ple th at it can be performed w ith out the slightest trouble b y a n y lad y, even in the v e ry room in w hich the coal is to be used. A m on gst the m an y ad van tages of Anthranite, one m ay sp ecially mention the following : — A N T H R A N I T E IS P E R F E C T L Y H A R M L E S S ; IT D O E S N O T S E T U P F U M E S , A N D IT S P R E S E N C E * C A N O N L Y B E D E T E C T E D B Y T H E G R E A T E R B R I G H T N E S S A N D H E A T O F T H E F I R E . — A N T H R A N I S E D C O A L L A S T S T W I C E A S L O N G A S O R D I N A R Y F U E L . — A F I R E M A Y B E K E P T IN F O R A N Y L E N G T H O F T IM E . — A N E N O R M O U S S A V I N G O F L A B O U R R E S U L T S , F O R T H E F I R E S R E Q U I R E P R A C T I C A L L Y NO A T T E N T I O N . — C H E A P C O A L , O R A M I X ­ T U R E O F C O A L A N D C O K E , M A Y B E U S E D W H E R E H I G H - G R A D E C O A L W A S F O R M E R L Y N E C E S ­ S A R Y . — SO O T A N D S M O K E A R E G R E A T L Y D E C R E A S E D , A N D T H E F U E L B U R N S TO F I N E A S H E S . — “ A N T H R A N I S E D ” K I T C H E N F I R E S M A K E F A R B E T T E R C O O K E D M E A L S , B E C A U S E T H E H E A T IN T H E O V E N IS P E R ­ F E C T L Y S T E A D Y W I T H O U T F L U C T U A T I O N . — T H E W E E K L Y O R M O N T H L Y C O A L B I L L W I L L B E R E D U C E D B Y O N E - H A L F O R M O R E . No wonder, then, th at people, when speaking of A n thranite, are alread y calling it “ condensed co al,” and th at the dem and for this w onderful su b­ stance, w hich has been placed before the general public ju s t a t the tim e when econom y is m ost necessary, is grow ing b y leaps and bounds. In spite of this, how ever, orders are being despatched p ractically b y return of post, as special arrangem ents h ave been m ade to turn out the huge quantities dem anded daily. A n th ran ite is being used in the best houses in T o w n and Coun try, in H os­ pitals, Institutions, Clubs, B an k s, and public offices. A m on g its Patron s are to be found the nam es of the best fam ilies in the K ingdom , and there can be no doubt th a t ere long it will h ave becom e as ord in ary an article of daily consum ption as is coal itself. So great is the value of this wonderful substance th at those who h ave tried it will as little think of using coal, coke, or slack, w ith o ut A nthranisin g it, as it occurs to them to m ake tea w ithout first m aking sure th at the w ater has boiled. A REMARKABLE TEST OFFER TO READERS.
