100 YEARS AGO: Sussex Express 13 September 1918. How to use less Coal. Be prepared. Buy fire bricks now. Do not start fires until it is really cold. Indulge less in the luxury of a hot bath. A cold bath in the morning, for those who can stand it, is more healthy and keeps you warm longer.

Remember, the more careful you are at the beginning of the winter the less will be your difficulty at the end. Make a good start, so as to have something in hand. Issued by the Coal Mines Dept of the Board of Trade, Holborn Viaduct, EC1.
