To Crude Oil Users Users of oil-iurning furnaces . are being reminded just , now tint under city ordinance No. 9142, passed on February 8 of this year,, they may demand during the coming season that oil deliveries be made on the basis of weight rather than by liquid measurement, ... The ordinance contains the follow ing optional clause: . "Provided, that the , provisions of "this ordinance shall not apply to any sale or contract of sale- in which the parties thereto have ' expressly agreed upon in writing, to the con trary, signed by the. parties thereto." City Attorney Rine,, who drew the ordinance, made tliis .. statement: "While the ordinance gives the option of allowing the oil consumers to con tract for deliveries under the" liquid measurement system, it, however, does protect consumers who may de mand that ;oil shall be delivered by weight, as defined in the ordinance." The liquid measurement clause was placed in the ordinance to satisfy j i i I i t .

"I . .'.-:' , The ordinance was introduced by Mayor Dahlman, and upon the re quest of C. J. McDonald, secretary and manager. of the'Nebraska Oil and Furnace company, , Mr. McDonald said: "We contended and still con tend that the 'weight measurement offers the better protection to con sumers, as under this system the con sumer is giyen weight tickets,, while under the liquid measurement system there are several undesirable features I c,0 nt see that theoptional feature of the, ordinance does much harm. We however, prefer to use the weight The Standard Oil comnanv is send ing to next season's prospective fuel oil patrons- contract blanks which read: "The party of the second part agrees to receive the oil distillate de fined in section 1, at and for the price of SY2 cents per gallon, delivered by tank wagon, and agrees to accept liquid measures tor all deliveries, in stead of requiring deliveries based on provisions of Omaha city ordinance No. 9142, such deliveries to be made as the party of the second part may require and as they order, but not less tnan sw gallons at any time.

So, as soon as he was able to get to his office, he mailed the check with the, wish that it might help some of the poor children. A bit of sickness or privation does, indeed, make one realise the hot weather sufferings of helpless little ones those whom The Bee's fund cares for. PrexioBHly acknowledged. SSAS.SQ J. H.
