At G o'clock this ovoniug tho
new system of firo alaun signals
will bo inaugurated nnd tho uso
of tho old cracked boll discontinu

by tho powerful whistlo of tho
Electric Light Works by short,
sharp blasts of tho whistlo of even
length, with a pause botweon tho
doublo figures. For instanco if
tho firo is at district 7, Bovon
short distinct whistlos will bo
blown; if it bo at district 53 there
will bo fivo short whistlos thon a
pause and threo whistlos. It will
bo noticed that tho lowest num

prevent confusion arising from
tho numerous steamor whistles.
It will also bo noticod that all
doublo numbers, such as 22, 33
and so on. nnd nil mult.inlna nf 10
are loft out to prevent any possib

upon recoiviug nn nlnrm by tolo

touches a button accordingly. Thia
sounds a gong in oach engine house

houses ono man will be especially
detailed to count tho ptrokosof tho
