    "Better Fire Fighting Facilities
    For a long time past the north end of the city, which is in the third fire district, has complained with good reason because firemen there could not hear alarms of fire. It has now been decided to place a bell on the new fire building on Niagara Avenue and last night the fire and water committee of the Common Council made a contract with McShane Bell Company of Baltimore, through the local agent, O. R. SACKETT, to furnish the bell for $1,050. The bell will weigh 2,000 pounds and is to be ready for use about December 1. The Revere Rubber Company through Mr. SACKETT, also, was given an order for 1,000 feet of rubber hose and the Fabric Fire Hose Company of New York, through its local agent, Samuel G. CHASE, was given an order for 1,000 feet of cotton hose. The cost of the hose will be about $1,400."
