You Have Heard of Many Remedies.
Did You Ever Try This OneP
Kerjl)ody you ineel on the streets
nowadays cither has Just had the grip,
Is coming dowu with It or has a sure
euro for It.
Tho disease has been a puzzle lo
physicians ever since Its appearance
several years ago and 'It Is as much
of n puzzle today as II was then. It
exhibits such a variety of symptoms In
different individuals and leaves such
disastrous results after appaient re
covery that ius yet Its prevention and
cure has ballled medical science.
However, there is no doubt but that
tho grip Is catarrhal In character nnd
the leading symptom In nearly every
case Is Increased secretion In the head
and throat; In fact, tlu tlrst Indications
of la grippe arc those of a cold In the
head which extends to the throat and
I Jr. Johnson Ames advises as the
safest course to pursue on the llrst up
pearancei of grip symptoms to keep to
the house for n day of two and take
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets every hour
the llrst day and every two hours tho
following day and states that thfs will
break up the trouble before It becomes
These catarrh tablets are antiseptic,
nnd harmless and prevent fever and
the further development of grip germs',
and ward off the ever piesent danger
Dr. Herald Simpson says: "I have
found Stuart's Catanh Tablets a pleas
ant and thotoughly reliable remedy for
the grip, especially Nltli elderly people,
with whom this prevailing disease Is
always dangerous." Tho tablets can
be found nt any drug store and If used
freely during the llrst few days of the
attack will break It up.
La grippe is u catarrhal affection, the
germs are In the air and no one H
pioof against it, but the timely use of
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets will prevent
any serious results.

of tho Improvements made dm lug tho

Is as follows:
To Hip Honorable Jamra Moll, ltceonli-r
Dear Sir: I haic tho honor to submit hue
nltli the annual report of the lire department
of tho city cf Seianlou, together whh leiom
ntendatluns which In my jwlctimnt' I IHIeie
would be of lastliic benetlt and of iintctlal aid
to the efficiency ol tho department.
When 1 entiled upon my duties in chief engi
neer I found Hie ilepirtmnt In a fill condition,
the majority of the- apptratus was In fair shape,
some of the hirncss fj In bid chipc, and omc
of Hip engine houses are In smli 11 (omllllou
that nothing shoit cf a genei.il cueilnulliig will

ri Hi lilts "ituc cittaln Upaii5, to whieh I shtll

The ilepirtuuiit as oiiraulpd at presmt l lery
cotuplttp. with one or two exceptions, ion-UtliiK
cf Ilic steamers, two mmblnitloii I'hemleal unl
hose, one hook and liddir liuil., two iliuiili.il
engines and one water bttlpi.i and spmii Iiop
companies. Theo org.iniratlous ate cllleeied or
tuanned by the fnlloniiig:
( hief engineei, sl assistant, englnrers (part
paid), clerk tu chief, thlrty-llie pcrmu'lent nun,
fno steamer engineers (part pild), flic stokers
(part pild), one tctcrinary surgeon and about
tiie hundicd o!unteer.
Tlieio ate tiftyoue horses attached to the de
pigment, all being in acthe Sfnlee. During the
ear four were turned oier to Ihe street com
mlsloner (or Ids u-c, and one to the food Inspec
tor. This ilfpartment has lot no horses during
tuo 3r.11. and at picMtit all are lit service
The apparatus of Hip dipartment is s follows.
One second rkiss Silsby steamer, one tlilul cla-J
Ii I'lancc steamer, one third class s-ll.-b.v steam
er, two chemical engines, two loinbinatluti cltcint
cal and hose wagons, one sUtj-lhc foot aciial
extension hook and ladder truck, srien hoses
wagons and the I10-.C ran iigis.
During the jear I haie lunl the appiratus oier
hauled and placed hi good condition as fir as
was possible with funds at hand.
The cost of tho work in each case was ai fol
lows: Franklin, ?lt7; I'houiK chemical itigiiip,
Ui".'J.V, i;.celslor lioso carriage, $77. Not men
tioning minor lepalrs made to other appiiatus
to tide ocr until an appropriation is made tu
put same in proper condition.
Dining the jear many Imptoiemcnts have ben
nude In the dipirtmcnt boides the repairs to
appaialus citid in tin1 foregoining patagraph.
The woeful laik of hose In Hip iirpiitmcnt is one
cf the lit ilrr features to which I would call jour
attention, although money Ins been annual!)
appropiitted fur its putrha-e and guarintepil for
at leat thne jeats. A grrat ileal ol Hip Hum1
that Is in service is old and mttiti and burts
wluneier the least pre.ssuie Is plieul on ll. Vn
imentory of tho hop, taken Marih 1, lOul,
shows a totil of P.I00 fi'ut in the dipartnnnt.
Of this, a.iwi feet is In good condition, a.inX) tn-t
in fair condition, and 1.MI0 lipt whlih is mint
for spriico where the waler piesuip is oier one
hundred pounds. ThU gbes the deparlment C,W0
frit of lio-.e which Is in good condition.
Certain portions of hose now in ii-p t haic
londemncd as unlit tor uniee, but it will luip
to be inido twi ct in certain sections of the my
wheic the water picsure is not high until I 0
eelic (iifllitetit approptlation at the hands of
councils to lit out the depirlmcnt as It should be.
The Iiom" question is of ital inipoilarie. Win 11
poor hose is In tuo poor senile is rindircd,
owing to time lost nplaelng burtnl seetlons.
Tho fire deparlment of Suanlon eannot haic
too much hose, owing to the distances between
b)drants. In some of the outl)lng sei lions of Hip
lity It is olten neicwiry lo liy l,jfl feet of
hose before a stream lau be tmnid on Hie llamis.
'jneie aro two things In this comiicflou Ihat I
would liiattlly jeconmiiud, and they aie plmty
cf liosc and plenty of b)dranls.
I hold that considerable money can bo sand
en the Item ot hoso which lias heiitofore been
wasted. If tin" lioc is pioperly taken late of,
sir., washed, if needed, or eliled and bra-hed, it
will lat twice as long; hoso cannot bo giitn the
proper care, howecr, uIllcs a change is on hand.
llach compnty should h.uo at least one thous
and feet, halt on the wagon and half under cup.
When hoso is brought in trom a lire it can linn
be ileaned and driid and the luiupiny will nut
hao to be out of seiWee. At pufiit thin Is
2,500 feet of tlrst class hose ill seriieo in the cen
