Excerpt from Patent, Smokeless and Semi-Smokeless Fuels IN the first portion of this little book I have endeavoured to Show in simple language how so-called Patent, Smokeless, and Semi-smokeless fuels are made, and why this form of fuel should be used in preference to raw coal. This section is intended to appeal to the public at large, who, for the greater part t being versed in highly technical subjects, have never, so far as I am aware, had the question explained to them in language which they can readily understand, and thus, having never understood, have made demand for the better and more ecomical article. The second section has been written to assist the more interested and scientific reader to whom' the technical details of the problem appeal.
