THE FIRE DEPARTMENT.
The rhvaix Hone Company Orders
Home, Haraeaa aad Hose Wagon
...Other Intrreailaa- Departneat
The Phoenix Hose company No. 1, held
a largely attended meeting last evening,
eighteen of the twenty-one members
being present. This was the most im
portant meeting in the history of the
company, the object in view calling to the
meeting every member who was in the
city and the proceedings and object was
of an unanimous feeling. After a care
ful survey of the resources and a general
amicable discussion, it was the unani
mous sentiment of the members that the
t'225 horded up in the treasury for benes
volent purposes, be used in buying a hose
wagon, horse and harness. A commit'
tee of five was appointed to make a con
tract for the fire vehicle to be delivered
at the earliest possible day. The same
committee was delegated with power to
purchase the horse, harness and other
equipments. Messrs. Swan Youagren,
J. J. ADberrv. C. F. Runre. William
Heitahrends and William Furbus held
committee meeting after the adiourn
, , j
ment of the company meeting and par
celled out what each should attend to.
the reel of the hose wagon will
carry U0 feet of hose. The company
will at no distant day hold a picnic or
other entertainment to raise the balance
of the money necessary to pay for the
outfit. The Phoenix companv is made
up of enterprising young men of the Sec
ond and First wards, who are willing to
devote their time and a small share of
their income to the betterment of the fire
service and the people of the city at large
can well afford to give them a helping
bond. The ward in which thev are
ocated has no manufacturing establish
ments or large property holders to assist
them and for this and other reasons they
will need slight aid. The city council
voted $100 to the company for a stable.
The Cable Hose company has bad its
ou'flt for a week. The horse is beine
trained and has so far learned to take his
place under the shafts. The hose wagon
is a beauty, which pleases the boys im
mensely. The Wide Awake Hook and Ladder
company report good progress in dona
tions for the purchase of a team.
This will give the city four hose carts
and a hook and ladder truck, which are
evenly distributed about the city for quick
service. They, with the drai? rniMcnm.
panies insures the city with good fire
protection, and all tends in the direction
of better disciplined, more efficient and
consequently more reliable fire protec
tion. It has been suggested by an old fireman
that it would lw a help if the city pro
vided the police patrol wagon with tar
paulins to protect goods, and a rope to
extend about a burning building to keep
idlers at a distance, this being another
feature of properly regulated departs
ments. The firemen are moving in the
right direction. The city council should
keep step with the gallant volunteers by
giying them aid and providing a reliable
fire alarm, which will be sanctioned by
the people of the city.
The Wide-Awake hook and ladder com
pany are circulating a subscription list
among the business men to raise money
with which to purchase a team and set
of harness. AU firemen recognize the
importance of having the ladders on the
ground first for more than one reason,
the most important of which are
to rescue people and furnish means by
which the firemen can carry the hose on
or into the burning building.
The team can be used during the day
'flMn.evprk in the
mmcdiate WinH? of iZ.. ,
This company, like all other companies.
will have men at the houses during the
night, and members living close by the
houses will see that the hose cans and
hook and ladder trucks respond quickly
to a farm alarm night and day. The
action of the fire department, if properly
seconded by the city, will result in a re
duction of insurance.

A FLI KT-WINGED MESSENGER.
AXovtl Way C'arryi the Arena
Ja'ewa ft'roaa Koek Island to Cable
-A. Ciarler Pigeon' Rrtaarkahle
Teste rday afternoon Mr. John Rus
sell, the pigeon fancier of Cable, sent one
of his fleet winged pets to the Arous
office is aox with a request that when
the result of the Sullivan-Eilrain fight
Decame Known, a small piece of paper
be fastened to a little gold ring on the
bird's foot, and that it be then liberated
The accompanying instructions were that
the following hieroglyphics be written on
the paper: If Sullivan won, "8;" Kil
rain, "K;" if a draw, "D;" if no flight,
"no.' A brief special message was pre
pared containing as much of an idea of
the remit of the fight as was obtain
able at that time, and directed as
an Abiub special to Mr. Russell,
attached to the ring on the bird's foot.
Thebir lwas taken into Market square
and given its freedom. It flew to the
top of the building on the west side ot
the sqi are occupied by Thomas' drug
store a id the Schafer bouse, and after
taking its bearings darted off in a south
westerly direction, then almost directly
south hnd disappeared. It was two
minutes to 5 o'clock when it started on
its journey, and at 5:20 it landed on its
perch on Mr. Russell's premises at Cable.
A great crowd made up of miners and
attaches were in waiting for the arrival
of the faithful messenger, which they
had tristed before. The distance by
rail to Cable is about twenty-two miles,
butbysn air line is four miles short
er, so t:iat the bird made the passage
through the air at the rale of a mile in a
little over a minute.
The S'tme bird made the journey from
Chicago to Cable recently, a distance of
165 milf s, in four hours and a half.
Mr. I:ussell prides himself greatly on
the success of bis fleet-winged messen
gers and well he may.

It was the finest game ever played here.
At the end of the fourth inning the score
stood 2 to 1 in favor of the Zumas. The

Zumas making five tallies in one inning.
The garie was very interesting through
out, the score being 10 to 2 in favor of
Zuma. The Hon. J. W. Simonson re

thrown too high for the man on first base.

SOME grocers are so short sighted as to decline to keep the
"Ivory Soap," claiming it does not pay as much profit as in
ferior qualities do, so if your regular grocer refuses to get it for you,
there are undoubtedly others who recognize the fact that the in
creased volume of business done by reason of keeping the best
articles more than compensates for the smaller profit, and will take
pleasure in getting it for you.
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the ' Ivory' ; "
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of
the genuine. Ask for " Ivory " Soap and Insist upon getting it.
