availa:tle,.( 'ertainly somethingshould
be done a:long this line and it is not
well to put the matter off, as delays
are lft-times dangerous, and some
of our elegant residences may burn
in the still hours of night before the
sleeping town can Ie awakened. To
us the ne'essity for a fire alarm is
s:1 alppare'nt that all other munici

certainly to Ibe hli(ttl that the mat
