"What First to Do iVhcn the Blaze
Breaks Out.
American Homes and Gardons.
No house, however tvell built, is abso
lutely proof against fire. The ttreproof
house is no longer a- theoretical struc
ture, it is true, and many houes are
built either on the fireproof or elow
burning system: but every house contains
large quantities of inflammable material;
there Is danger from the heater, or care.
lest'rcss In the kitchen: the electric wir
ing may be. Improperly insulated: there
are many ways In which the best of
houses may suffer Injury from fire, and
a very serious and real problem that con
fronts every owner of a countrj homo is
protection against fire.
In ifiany cases this niu?t be a personal
protection: that Is to say, one for which
the owner Is personally responsible, a
protection service installed by himself
and manned and applied by his own peo
ple. This Is particularly true of isolated
houses, situated at some distance from
any fire station, and wholly dependent on
local or Immediate sources of water sup
ply. The volunteer tire department, while
unquestionably the bust that many vital
communities can afford, are Inherently
deficlent In the efficiency of a paid force.
The members aro scattered; they cannot
immediately respond to calls made, upon
them; they may not even be at home
when the alarm is given; the alarm sys

may not be sufficient hose; there are
many serious criticisms that can be made
of these organization, although the inten

be of the best, and the protection Intend

faults of the volunteers, but of the sys

Owners of large houses, therefore, will
do well to provide their own fire appa

There should be a double water supply,
one within and one without the house.
There should be an ample supply of hose
and a number of chemical fire extinguish
ers. A ladder mounted on wheels and
kept outside the house may be found nec

force pumps for directing streams of
water against the fire. In short, every
reasonable and proper protection should
be arranged for.
Perhaps even more important than the

Fire drills are therefore Important, es

are kept. Every man should know just
what Is expected ofhim in such an emer

drills should Include the actual use of the
apparatus as well as the part each one is
expected to take.

With Great Success.
New York Times.
B. H Harrlman gave a dinner In honor
of Koreklyo Takahoshi at the Metropoli
tan Club Monday evening. There were
about 60 guests present. Including several
prominent Japanese and many ot Mr.
Harrlman's perspnal friends, among them
a number of prominent bankers. Including
Jacob H. Schlff.
Mr. Harrlman's entertainment of Mr.
Takahashl. the special financial represen
tative of the Japanese government abroad,
was In recognition of the many courtesies
extended by him to Mr. Harrlman during
the lattcr's visit to Japan last Fall.
The arrangements for the dinner wore
especially designed to prove enjoyable for
the distinguished Japanese guests, who
were reminded by the decorations of the
dlnlng-table and In other ways of their
home country. Tho Japanese present. In
addition to Mr. Takahashl, Included K. J.
Imanlshi, manager of the New York
agency of the Yokohama Specie Bank;
a Fukal, U. Yanaglya and 9. Uchlda.
Japanese Consul-General1 In New York.
Tho large table .at which the threescore
guests were seated was arranged In Imi
tation of a Japanese garden. In the cen
ter was a beautifully modeled pagoda, and
at either end of the table were ponds in
which sported Japanese goldfishes.
After the dinner Mr. Harrlman's guests
were entertained by Japanese music,
played by musicians from the Island Empire-,
and by Japanese athletic contests.
There were several native exponents of
JIu-Jltsu, who performed for the enter
tainment of the diners, and also fencing
matches between Japanese swordsmen.
The Japanese guests expressed admlra
tion of .the skill displayed by these fol
lowers of the two most honored modes of
Japanese defense.
In entirely Informal speeches after the
dinner, courtesies were exchanged between
the representatives of the two nations at
the dinner. The entertainment being- of
purely personal character, however, no
reference was made to the financial mat
ters with which Mr. Takshashi Is espe
cially concerned in his mission from the
Japanese government.
In the speech which he himself made,
he gave voice to the good will between
his own country and this without finding
It necessary to dwell specifically upon the
question- of finance, which during the
period -of the recent war brought him
closely in contact with American bankers.
