i '.Incalculable, and even greater cltlclenoy Is

ij'A. The first Idea Inculcated In the mind of
5 the newly made fireman Is revolutionary If
, js'ene measures by commonly accepted stand
'i He Is taught that his first duty Is not
to extinguish the fire to which he is sum
moned. Foremost comes the saving of human life.
How to rescua persons Imperiled In burn
ing buildings Is the first subject In the flre
A man's school. HIb own safety Is secondary.
v Before water Is "laid on" ,the hoseman must
, go Into the smoke and flame and assure hlm
Yiself no human being, sensible or Insenslf
. ble. yet remains Such a victim must be
v carried to enfetyaj. all hazards and with
, ao delay. The saving- of property and ex

Howard G. French Calls for
Meeting in Hnrrisburg to
Consider Project
Plans for a Pennsylvania Chamber of
Commerce, to be formed somewhat on the
model of Chamber of Commerce of the
United Stales, already are under way.
Howard II. French, president of the PhlN
adelphla Chamber of Commerce, has sent
a circular letter to chambers of eoinmerce,
other leading builness organizations nnd
grnngei throughout tho Stale, asking 'co
operation In the plan for nn Initial meeting
on December 1G at llairlibiirg loohln'g to

the lda The letter In part follows
Your experience In business has
doiibtleni led you to tlio same conclu
sions which many other progressive
hunlne men are reaching today, viz .
that It would be to tha advantage of
our fate otir Industry nnd our agri
culture if thi business men of the State
and the I.eglslnttirn could be brought
Into a nioip Intelligent and sympathetic
co-operation than at present exists.
Thero has been a lack of harmony be
tween the representatives In tho legis
lative halts and the Interests which
thrive, or die, as affocled by such leg
islation Tho letter continues to sny that every line
of business Iiiih suffered from hastily
evolved laws and lack of conitnictlvo legis
lation and that therefore It would seem
ilcslious. In view of these facts, that on
organisation he formed within tho Com
moimralth "fien from alliance with any
polUlcil p.trtv through which men of ubll
Ity may endeavor to icmedy these condi
tions by expressing then thoughts to those
who are charged -with the responsibility of
making, enforcing and Interpreting these
"II Is thought," the letter continues, "that
