the fire losses of the country.
As is shown in the published re
port of the state fire warden in t h i .-;
state a larger part of the fires are
caused by sparks from chimneys and
defective fines and it is the duty of
the property owner as well as the
menitersof the households to see
that their property is kept up in
shape and with inspections of the
chimneys at least once each year to
determine their safety. In the con

first movement the fire warden has
issued some notes as to chimney con
struction, and states that all chim
neys irrespective of what material
the walls are built of should be lincl
with fire clay, fire lining or fire brick.
This lining should be made for the
purpose and adapted to withstand
high temperatures and gasses from
burning futl. The chimneys should
be constructed from the ground up
and shall not rest on wooden be;m.-
