Jake Swindler was driviny them

and came back to Fourth street and
started down the sidewalk in front
of the U. V. Mathews residence, but

could not break the excited animals
were suddentl' halted. While it

and a strap or two broken. No one
was hurt on the race thouyh there
was several pretty close calls.
An Interesting Relic 153 Years Old.
The city editor of Tut-: Herald
had the pleasure to-day of lookiny
over a copy of the New Knyland
Weekly Journal, a paper printed in
Oueen street, Boston, Monday,
April 8, 171'S. It consisted of a
sinyle sheet of two columns,
printed on both sides, and was in
f;iir condition. There was a yreat
dearth of local news, the space of
the paper beiny yiven up laryely to
news from London, of which the two
followiny items are a fair sample:
Remember the paper before us was
n weekly newspaper, printed in
April, yet its news from London is
dated October, 1727, and says:
"On Wednesday last a patent
passed the seal, -con si t i t n t i ny the

their hands on beiny appointed

"At the review last Saturday

horse hail the misfortune to have
his pocket picked of bank notes
valued at 2 pounds."
An advertisement reads as
"A very likely Neyro Woman who
can do household work, and is tit
either for town or country service,
about 22 years of aye, to be sold.
Inquire of printer hereof."
It contains many other peculiar
features, of which we will speak at
The Peoples Party.
At thecentral committee meetiny

A Fireman Speaku his Mind.
Kditor of HERALD:--Believiny
that the yeneral public was not
aware of the deplorable condition
which our fire apparatus is actually
in, and the danger that menaces
the city from that direction, I
thouyht I would write you a line or
two for the information of property
The $l,f00 worth of hose and carts
could not well be in worse
condition than they now
are. They have not been
oileil up in months and all of them
are not entirely in the dry. The
principal cart stands in behind
other things, wrong end to, so that
it would have to be backed out and
turned around before it could be
manned. The hose has been laying
without being tested, and I venture
the assertion that we haven't got
two lenghths of hose that will
stand the pressure in case of a tire.
Nothing could be more disatrous
than the bursting of a hose at a
dangerous fire and that is what
we are liable to have at any time
Kvery foot of hose should be tested
and mended. The carts should be
oileil up and placed where they
could be got at without any unnec
essary delay. There are man- other
suggestions of a slightly personal
character that might be made but
this will suffice for the present.
Yours for protection.
An old Fireman.
