Caution to Consumers of Coal Oil.
rjSj-Th'u company from this date will not handle Insurance Oil ami Puro-
lino for the following reasons: Inmirarco Oil Tnuk Co. who claim to own
these Trade Mark brands have not during several years past had any regular source of 01'
supplies but have leceived IiiHuranco Oil and Puroliiio from sources where they
could buy cheapest without rcfruril to quality. IllRiiritliCO Oil is simply
any quality of Water White oil. Consumers have no guarantee of ils Fire
Test or purity. Pnrolllio is simpiy any quality of 74 Gasoline. As Caroline
varies great y in purity consumers should only buy under the proper name of 71 0 Gas-
oline and then be sure the goods are guaranteed by responsible parties. The quality ol
Insurance Oil and Pnrolllio which has been furnished by Insurance Oil Tank
Co. has almost entirely stopped the demand but we wish to warn intended purchasers we
will not ho responsible for these brands. Very Respectfully
