it is claimed that its installation In the
woolen mill makes it impossible for the
buildings of the company to be destroy
ed by fire.
Last summer a disastrous fire, the
most extensive occurring here for sever
al years, destroyed a large Dortion nf
the buildings of the woolen mill. New
buildings.replacing the former structures
more modern and complete in every way,
have been built, and in connection, to
guard against a repetition of the damage
by fir of lat year, the automatic fire
extinguisher has been installed. By its
use the insurance companies have given
the owners of the mill a reduction in
their rates of 40 per cent.
By means of this system, pipes vary
ing in size from to six inches have
oeen placed along the celling through
out the buildings of the mill, and at
intervals of eight to ten feet thereon are
placed vents, with small attachments,
so arranged that whenever the heat in
their vicinity reaches a temperature of
llo (leg, a composition metal sealing the
aperatures fuses, letting the water es
cape in a sho-ver. A metal cap of
peculiar shape distributes the water as
widely as p-seible, and each sprinkler
will give out 20 gallons of water per
minute under a pressure of 100 pounds.
This system of pipes is attached to the
centrnl city mains by three six-inch con
nections, thereby affording sufficient
water to supply every sprinkler in the
mills shou.d the hres be extensive
