' O w 'o To Prevent the Spread of Fire. A correspondent of th': Chicago Times furnishes the following: Would you be so kind as to publish the following plan for preventing fires from spreading in cities: A pipe extending from the water sup ply pipe in the basement to the roof of the house, connecting there with one running horizontally above the comb of the roof its entire length, so that when the water is let on from the street main it will make a shower all along the comb'of the roof. The water will run into the spout, a in a rain, but a "cut off " can be arranged so that instead of running into the kitchen, it will be con ducted to a gutter running along the wall, and trickle through hole in the bottom of this along the wall or weather-boarding. Another gutter along the wall, and near the bottom, could collect it and run it into a rain barrel, from which it could be dipped to wet the woodea sidewalks. By this means, the water could be used three times, and in a large fire, even when whole blocks were ablaze, the fountains would continue to play on the fire. An Amusing- Incident. While the House was in committee of the whole on the Deficiency Appropria tion bill a Question arose oa which a di vision of the House was demanded, and the chairman, Stevenson, of Ohio, ap- fointed General Butler and General 'arnsworth tellers. Butler and Farns- worth are not on speaking terms, and when they met in front of the clerk's desk they did not observe the usual custom of shaking bands, whereupon some mem ber, wishing to carry on the joke, in sisted upon introducing them. Butler was unwilling to look at Farnsworth, while the latter refused to recognize Butler. They stood looking away from each ether, without speaking, to the greet amusement of the members who are fa miliar with their peculiar relations.
