fires and seriously cripples our usually efficient organizations in means and methods of extinguishing I suggest to the people of the state that extra precaution be taken by all to guard against this Let the mayors of cities and towns have all appliances for extinguishing fires thoroughly tested and put in readiness at Let all inflam mable garbage be removed from tho streets and alleys boxes and empty oil barrels moved to a safe Let additional fire patrols be estab and in short let every good citizen exercise unusual precaution against this dreaded and in every way seek to reduce the lia
