Somebody asked me ut a recent fire (liandall's) why the engine compuny did not answer ull alarms, whether first or second, as an extra pressure would huve been of con¬ siderable hel;i while working at the blaze. I told him I thought they (lid, but I would inquire, which I did and I um informed that this order hus been ¦ in effect for some time, but it is an awful job to get horses. The man who took the hook and bidder truck to the fire unhitched his horses and took them, buck home and just missed being in time to take the engine out too on his return, before other horses were secured for this purpose.

We huve found from long experience that the only way lo run a newspaper is to deliver it at the promised time. WHY WON'T THEY HELP'.' The biggest hindrance to firemen working ut a fire is the person who per¬ sists in getting in the way. Frequent¬ ly "outsiders" help, hel[i immense^, and the assistance is appreciated but the man, woman or little girl who per¬ sists in getting in the way or refusing to get out of the way when requested, is a nuisance. I saw a flagrant case of this kind at the fire Monday morn- est is the cheanest in the long run. With thia idea in view, he has con tracted for this bitulithic pavement. The price for ihi.- work is somewhat hit'lier ihi-.r, for a maciriHii.i/.d repair- in;.-, bin it ba- tins advH:,;age that wl.ile no guamni-.'e is g'ven on a ma''adiyii roal. the Wavrtn |iei pie guaruntee the bitulithic and keep it in ; irixtun repair, for live years fr-im tbe time it i We nsk is laid, under a h,"ivy iiond ; nnd a road j was the secret of tbei that will stand u;i under the heavy j such an excellent t-i^llii.' .jf lhe .Merrick Roud for live years IS certainly'u big iir pr vi';:ent on anything that ha.^- tieen lai i i.i this section before.
