2000 feet glass.

500 feet glass.

550 " pipe.

100 " pipe.

14 " to peak.

9 " to peak.

4 " to eaves.

4 " to eaves.

60° temp.

60° temp.

Exposed to all winds.

Exposure same.

Both houses run north and south, but are 4 1/2 feet apart, pipes being carried in boxes underground.

Boiler used Hitchings Corrugated, No. 16; average temperature winter 78 and 79, (5 mos.) 25°: 14 tons coal used; highest temperature 60°; lowest 20°: average temperature for 79 and '80, (5 mos.) 30 2-5°; highest 64°, lowest 10°; 13 tons coal used.

Would have used less coal this season had the weather been even, but it was so changeable you could not keep even fires, besides the winds have been very high. Think I've got in all the points needed, will allow him to draw his own conclusions, simply stating that I am satisfied.
