Printed matter relating to fire rtnngers and precautions, he thought, should he circulated among all classes and In the languages best un derstood.

The list of directors was prepared by a committee, consisting of Chiefs Fan cier and Snagg and ex-Chief Hen drlck and as many of those named were not present, the president was empowered to fill vacancies, If any of those chosen could not servo. The dues were mado the nominal sum of one dollar.

In connection with tills will be taken up the coupling pro blem and the best way of meeting that difficulty, as many places have coup ling that will not fit the hydrants else where.
