K. Patent shut off nozzle. Otto j. Welp a member the Philadelphia fire department who was in this City monday working in the interest tie a a a cd nozzle gave a pub ii exhibition Market it quare monday evening to illustrate the working the new fire fighting appliance. Among the Points Merit claimed for the a a a cd nozzle is that by preventing a rotary motion it is made to throw a straight Stream ten to fifty feet further than any other nozzle. It throws a Small Stream for incipient tires which Cau be instantly converted into a full sized Stream. Its most valuable feature probably is the attachment for throwing Spray ahead directly backward at an Angle 80 a degrees. The use Spray has come to be an important fact �11 fighting tire late As when properly thrown around the fireman it excludes the smoke and heat and enables him to make his Way through the burning building to the very seat the fire. The a a a cd nozzle throws a straight Stream and a Spray any size at any Angle at the same time it throws a Stream Only. The nozzle is provided with valves by which the water can be shut off instantaneously closed slowly gradually reducing the size the Stream.

Indeed the archives comprise a thrilling and exhaustive history the time told in the r own Way by those who figured in the events. It covers a time when this portion the state was an in broken wilderness. The foundations fort Shamokin Augusta at Sunbury had not yet been Laid. The Only allusion made to anything at All a a local is the frequent mention Shickel Imja and Adam Montour both whom were indians Friendly to the Whites. The first allusion to fort Augusta occurs in a letter from governor Morris to governor Sharpe in 175which says a i also propose to build a fort at Shamokin at the Forks sus Quazana As soon As the season wiil admit a passage up the River for the mountains North the Kite Ting Are quite impassable for the following postscript a letter written by George Croghan to r.
