That's why we are filling our yard with Coal, and have been for mouths.

Coal is a year-'round proposition with us here at Norton's. We've always seen to it that Kossuth County had its coal, and we can continue to do so. We're filling up our yards—we advise you lo fill your bin. Get the matter oi Coal for next winter settled now, and be worry-free about coal for next winter. It might pay. Our supply of barbed wire is large Just when you farmers want it because .whenever we could pick up a shipment „•• we did so—same as with Coal. The' steel trouble did not affec^us.
