Ou Thursday afternoon a slight fire broke out la a b x of waste at the Pullman shops over Eleventh strict bridge. Like all well regulated shops of any exteat, the Pullman shops have an crganlzed fire brigade, whose members are drilled to respond promptly to auy alarm, each mau having his special duty assigned to him Thursday was the first oi pirtnnlty to put this fire brigade to practical test and that it was fnuud wanting is best told by what cc rarred. The man responded to tbe alarm promptly, bat lnaiead of performing their severally allotted duties, they rushed eronnd like a tieek of wild geese The hose cart was run out, but Instead of running to a fire hydrant about 30 feet from the scene of the fire, they etlashed It to the fire* hydrant, they met wblcts was at least 150 feet from wbere tbe fire was blaz ng merrily.

One of the firemen rushed baok and alerted the water while y>verel others picked up the nczz'.e preparatory to extinguishing the fire. At this juncture an Individual rnshed excitedly Into the crowd and ordered those holdiug the nozzle "to drop that ere nozzle; that's my job " Tbe nozzle was Instantly dropped and began wriggling end writhing about Finally wheu the new arrival had cap tnred the nozzle, from which was now Issuing a solid stream of water, he Inadvertently lumtil tbe whole force of the stream on little girl who was an Innocent onlooker at this comedy of errors. The little girl wes knocked down by tbe force of the stream and of course was tborongbly drenched. By this time, however, the fire brigade was ready to extinguish that fire or die In the attempt. When it went to turn the stream on tbe burning waste It found tbe fire extinguished. The foreman of the tin shop aud an appren tice bad put oat tbe fire with e few buckets of water The members of tbe fire brigade of the Pullman shops are now tbe objects of considerable good uatnred chaffing from their fellow employ el.
