there pondering how he would
Invest his surplus salary after pay

were interrupted by the entrance of
a man ami, what was better yet, a
woman. I lie judge instantly killed
his cigar by tupping the ash end
against the gilt window-casing,

"Morning, judge. Say, can you
marry us right off quick?" replied
"Well, I'm from Missouri and
I can 'show you' that my marrying

he proceeded to arrange his tie and

followed us to the probable cost,
the feasibility of purchase, the

Mr. Campbell had imtxmaul
business which necessitated cither
telephonic communication or his
presence. In default of the former
he wns forced to adopt the latter
and He much regretted the fact.
"If that dry dock ever catches
fire the fircboat would be needed,
a a - '
nut unless some means is taken to
secure letter telephone service the
dock would be gone before we
could hear of it. I am told that
loles have lecn set, ready to string

agitated because much dctHMids

Mr. Campbell then took up the
question of the water supply of St.
Johns. He knows the needs of this
city and realizes what It would
mean if a fire should attain much
headway in the business jwrtion of
tne town, wiien asked if the
fircboat would come to Saint Johns
in case an alarm was sent in, Mr.
Campbell nt once replied:
"Yes, sir; the boat would be
sent at once if it was needed and
call should be made. That is one
reason why you should have better
telephone service so you could get
us quickly. It required 34 minutes
to get to the dry dock this morning
so we are sure that we could get
busy in Saint Johns in half an
hour. Hut you know the boat is

catch fire we could do lofs of good

i suggestion was then made that
11 six-inch main be laid from the
new dock up the hill to Jersey
street and nil arrangement made
at that juncture whereby n con
nection could be made with the
fire plugs. Fire Chief Ciimpbill
was highly enthusiastic over such 11
plan. Said he:
"That would be the procr
thing. As it is now your water
force is not adequate tor the city's
needs. I.et a strong fire break out

Looking After Mining.
N. J. Bailey, who has long been
an important factor iu the Portland
Manufacturing Company, has re
linquished his position and is
scouring about the country, having
a good time. Iast week he was up 1 don't
right up Richmond street to Jersey
there' d be .something doing when
the fircboat commenced work. If
the pie was so trupjK-d that a flow
Could be made into the city main
direct we could send water all over
the city iu splendid s!iuje -if we
didn't burst your pijcs. The
firelHxit can throw 30000 gallons of
water a minute and that's going
some. She can do better than that;
but if we should send that amount
of water up that long hill at that
rate your fire coinimny could put
out any fire that showed up.
" to !o sure, the boat could not
commence work till about thirty
minutes after your fire chief had
'phoned us for aid; aud again,
there would 1k one chance iu a
thousand that the boat would le iu
use iu I'ortlaiKl; but tlie chances
are against tlie latter. W hat a
.splendid thing it would be to have
a firelKmt within call and to know
thut when a fire started there would
soon be a vast quantity of water!

pipe question and see how the
Ijx'oplc of Saint Johns would look,
upon It. 1 ixMieve it would be a
great factor in reducing the rate of
insurance aud a rate of from eight
to ten per cent ought to be reduced.
