Wbj-, the work ot the Halo lire Fighters is even more practical than the work actuallj dono In the dally fighting of real fires "The workmanship, the speed and the excellencj- show that the performers haxe reached the top-notch of fire lighting. So superior were the executions I haxe Just seen, that they almost deceived the eyes of a xeteran nireman like myself. "Take for Instance the scaling ladder scene. Tho men run up their ladder which Is nothing more tnan a pole with hand and foot rests, requiring at all times tho greatest courage, with the daring that the hero alone feels, and at the same tlmo with tho e.ise and seeming Indifference shown by a man free from danger. These noble men dallj- give these exhibitions, not only to pleae th admirers of the Hale Tire Fighters, but to demonstrate to the public what is the highest tj-pe of practic al fire fighting "But tne acme of courage Is shown when the firemen enter the burning tene ment house.
