Preble of Montpelier, deputy State Fire Marshal, is makin an officiai visit to St. Johnsbury and spont Fiiday insjìecting the build ings in the business disti'ct of the town. Mr. Preble is deputy to J. G Bi'own of Montoelier who is not only the State Fire Marshal but the State Insurance Commissioner and the de partment of which he is the eflicient head is workin- to protect property from fire in ali parts of the state. Mi. Preble found some exceeilin"'" dangerous fire hazaids in the èase ment.s of some of the buildiifgs and in aìle- ways and has already con demned one building. This is the barn olf Prospect Avenue owntd by Gordon C. Wecks and it has been condemned as being un. sa f e for pedes trians as wcll as a fire hazard. Mr. Prehle's visit was not timcd to precede our annual clean up cam paign, but he not only endorses such a e.tmnaign but believes there should be :v clean u' in basements and alleys every week in the year as a safeguard asainst lires. The law is very strict for failure to complv with the orders of the State l'ir" Marshal and if after ten days no notice is taken of the ordir there is a fine of ?10 a day until the order is complied with. Mr. Preble is convinced that there ought to be village ordinances that would prevent the buildiii"- of fìrcs in idley wavs back of stores and other building and also one for the use and abuse of gasolene. It is not gen "inllv known that the fumea of five callons of confmed '-asoleno are eiual to Po ìinunds of dynamite. The rcsuHs of Mr. Preble's inspection will be reported to his ehief in Montpelier !ind conics of ali recommendatior.s irfd orders left with Harry J. Mar J' n the chief of the Pie denartment. Mr. Marden will make inspections i -very month to séc that the orders of his superiora arò cai,vied out. Any failurc to carry out these ìccommen- , dations anil orders will bo rcfiorted back to the Montpelier office. Mr. Preble is receivin"- hearty co operation from ali the fire insurace ngents in V'ermont as they realize that the onlv wa to get reduced r:ites of file insurance is to eliminate 'di (ire hazaids and make every build :ng as safe as possible. Burglar Alami Wcnt Off Unexpectcdly In making the estensive repairs on the First National batik building the workmen removed an old burglar alami that had been attached for some 50 years to the rear of their block. It was -laced there soon af ter the block was built in 1870 and was so adjusted that anv attempt to crack the big safe would immedi ately cause a load explosion in the alami. The alami had not been con nected up with the vault for 40 years and when the workmen threw the contrivftnce on the ground they sup po.sed they were handling a "dud"; tnstead there ws an instant explo ion which was heard ali over thfe vil !aie. To say that the workmen and' bank officials were surprised is cx nre.'sing it mildly and that no one was hurt was one of the fortunate leaturcs of tbe occurrence. The apparatila was so ad justed that number of blank cartridges would be discharged bv elcctricity with the idea that if anyone ever attempted to crack the big vault the noise of the explosion would frighten the intrud rrs. When the alami was first placed on the building it occasionally went dIV arcidentally to the great surprise of ali in the immediate vicinty.
