Have you made a init to the citj'g
new engine bouse on F atiron square?
If cot you do not realize bow rapidly
the arrangements for Rck Island's new
svstem of fire protection are nearing com
pletion. One who is possessed ot pride
in the city cannot be otherwise than
gratified at the work in progress there,
and the visitor will realize that be is re
paid for his time, as Tee Argus man did
the other day. Chief Engineer Ramskill
is putting in his time to j;ood effect in
completing the building which the city
erected on the square lt.et year, and ar
ranging the interior details for the ac
commodation of the neiv equipment.
The building itself h is been described
in Toe Aitors. Suftict- is it now to siy
that it is two stories an 1 a haif high, and
was designed wiih particular reference to
the needs of a paid department. Chief
Ramskill has had the app roHcb.es to
the building on Fifth i.venue and Six
teenth and Seventeen.h streets nicely
filled and graded, so thut the hose and
hock and ladder teams may get a eood
Btart and run to any pa-1 of the city. Of
course the first floor will be used for tie
hose, and hook and ladder wagons. The
latter is already in the Louse and will be
stationed en the west s;de. The new hose
wagon which is expect d in a day or two
will have the east side. Id addition to
carrying 1.500 feet of Lose, 5U0 feet o
new hose of which is already on hand, the
hose wagon will cany a 20-foot exten
sion ladder. The bosa wagon will be
painted a dark blue, aid lettered "Hose
HuuseXo. 1 Rock Is and Fire Depart
ment." Back of the truck atd hose wagon ere
the stalls for the horses, five in all, the
two outer ou each side for the teams for
the respective apparatus' while the centre
is for the chief's ho-se, as he will no
doubt be provided witj a rig of his own
next season. Io froct of the wagons is
a steel pole which wil; be the means of
descent tor the firemen in responding to
alarms when they are in their quarters on
the second fl-or. The front doors to the
engine house and als to the stalls will
all open automatically and by means of
the same electricity bich sends in the
From the little ball n the front of the
building a handsome oak stairway leads
to the second fl jor. To the right as ycu
reach tLe upper landing you find the
sleeping apartment for the firemen, a
commodious room, pic isantly lighted and
ventilated . Back of it, is a harness,
feed and general store room, while off
from it to the west is the battery room
for the electric alarm apparatus. Im
mediately in the rear cf this and it is a
provision of which the chief feels parti
cularly proud is the oath room for the
firemen. This is a convenience which
the laddies will appreciate. The closets
are also in this room.
Oa the west side of the second flaor of
the building is a fine reading room and
library for the firemen, while the front
room will be the chief's office and sleep
ing apartment. Chief Ramskill has been
very cartful to preserve the sani
tary condi!ioD9 in the matter of sewer
age, etc., and the build. ng will always be
kept as neat as a pin f: em roof to base
ment. In view of the fact tl.at the city's aim
is to secure the creates', efficiency ia its
fi'e department service, the suggestions
contained in Sirpeiintendent of Water
Works Murnn's message to the council at
Monday night's session are very proper.
The superintendent thinks the pumping
capacity of the waterworks should be in
creased to 5, OOO.(KH) ga Ions per day. He
favors a compound con Jensing pnmp of
the Holly or Worthiigton make. The
council, will, it is probable, carry out his
recommendations so tl.at the increased
capacity may be secure! the coming fall.
The works are now putiping at the rate
of 2.700,000 gallons a day, while at
times during the day the works are
pumping at the rate of 3.5000,00. whereas
the guaranteed capacity of the pump is
only 3.000,000 gallons. The city, in the
absence of a reservoir, is in gTeat need of
duplicate reserve force, and this is con
templated in Mr. Muriin's recommenda-,
tions. The present puiap has been run
ning nine years, night tnd day.
Ei-Chief Noe of the Daven port paid
fire department came over yesterday and
inspected the ' new engine bouse. He
cimcratulated Chief Ramskill on its ar
rangement. Chairman Corken, of the fire and light
committee, sajs that in the selection of
firemen only the beat cf the old volun
teers will be selected.
The work of wiring tae city for the new
alarm system will begit in a day or so.
Tne location of the bo:;es was given in
The city has not yet decided as
between the Gilpins aiid Cables in the
retention of a volunteer company in the
upper end. The Frai.klins will be kept
down town of courfe, and the Cables ap
pear to be the bet equipped for the up
town service, as they hv j a good bose
wagon bui t for the purpose, and the city
should look to this in contracting for the
east end volunteer company, and no
company should be continued until this
provision is assured.
Mbmtinc Off Traffic.
The report has been curreat upon the
streets the last day or two that the Rock
Island Lumber company bad shut off the
avenues running parallel to Fifth avenue
between Twenty fourth and Cable streets,
thus preveating the public from using
them while the paving of Moline avenue
is in progress. An Argus representa
tive visited the locality this morning and
found that the avenues alluded to are not
closed during the day. but at niebt the
yard watchman closes the gates which
prevent vehicles passing unless the driv
ers get out and open the gates. The
company claims that the streets are priv
ate property, and that it accordingly
has a perfect right to close them if it
City Attorney Haas was seen this af
ternoon and sta'ed that the only property
rights the lumber company had In the
premises over public streets was Third
avenue east of Twentj-sixih street,
which the city had vacated. The gates
alluded to are across Fourth avenue, and
here the company has no risht. The
city it seems has a case worth looking
into, as with Fifth avenue torn up traffic
to and from the Rjck IsJand depot
would be practicUy shut off. if the ave
nues north tf it are to be closed for any
He Didu't Think So at First, but Changed
Two men who were traveling over the
Michigan Central road the other day
bad struck np an acquaintance, and
after talking for some time on general
matters their conversation took on a
semiconfidential tone not infrequently
adopted by business men under like cir
cumstances. "1 feel mighty good today," said one
of them, slapping himself ou the legs,
"mighty good. I've jat about com
pleted a very neat little bit of business.
I'm in the fire bose line, and I don't be
lieve there's a busiuess in the world like
it for competition, red hot all the time.
Well, 1 learned by theer accident last
week that this town we're coming to
was going to buy a lot of hose. I slipped
np here very quietly, fixed one of the
conncilmen, and we've just prevented
the other boys from getting any infor
mation whatever. The council's going
to decide on the matter tonight, and
there ain't a fire-hose man in the whole
country that knows anything about it
but me. I've got a regular walkover.
I dnnno, somehow when a feller has suc
cessfully worked a scheme like that it
makes him feel great. Does me, any
way." "Do you know what I do when I feel
as you do now?" asked his companion
"I recall as vividly as possible some
occasion on which I have made a big
fool of myself. We've all done that,
you know, and it sort of prevents the
swelled head to think of it at titles.
Kind of brings a man down to the proper
level. Don't you think it's i good idea?"
"Maybe," said the other, "but I don't
happen to recall such an occasion just
this miuure. Well, goodbv, I get off here.
Yon go right through, I believe."
"I intended to," was the reply, "but
after the information you've just given
me I believe I'll stop oti here too. I'm a
manufacturer of fire hose myself."
And as they walked down the aisle the
first shaker looked as though hie had re
called an occasion just that minute after
all. Detroit Free 1'iess.

I Deafnei. Can't ba Cored
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diceased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness!
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an icfUmed condi
tion of the mucous lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless tha im
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of 10 are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condi-.
tion of the mucous surface.
We will gice $100 for any case of
deafness (caused by catarrh) that we cat
not cure by taking Hall's Catarrh cur .
