Plan to Change the
City Lights is Put
Over for a Week
A plan for the redistribution of electric
lights, submitted to the council by the
city electrician, M. J. Curran. has been
referred for one week, when Its adoption
will be considered.
The proposed plan will eliminate sev
eral street lights, and many others will
be moved to new locations. The plan
was proposed when the electric light com
pany submitted a request for an exteh
slon of Its street lighting contract.
There is little money In the street light-'
lng fund now and the approval of the
electrlo light contract will mean a reduc
tion In the number of street lights un-

What Is It?
Petrolium Carbon Coke is not a product' made from
coal, as is tyu? case with all othei cokes. Neither is it a
by-product from Gas House, known as gas house coke.
Petroleum Carbon Coke is a by-product obtained from
the refining of crude oil. Therefore, it is made from oil,
and is called Petroleum Carbon Coke. There is not an
other fuel of any description that does not contain from
10 to 30 per cent oof ash. Petroleum Carbon Coke con
tains no nah. It All Consumes. It can be used in a furn
ace an entire season without removing a pound of ashes
or shaking the grate. It is absolutely '
Smokeless, Odorless and Soofless.
Think of it! No Ash, No Smoke,
No Spot, No Odor,
and more heat than any other fuel. For furnace, range
and grate use, your imagonation cannot conceive of a
more ideal fuel. Prices. $9.50 per ton for July delivery
only. Tho reason wo are making this low price is because
wo want to begin delivering it direct fro mthe cars. Next
month tho price will advance, so take advantage of the
low price now.
