The Columbus Fire Department are
contemplating the purchase of an auto
matic fire escape invented by Henry
Nuregy of Grand Island, and manufac

very simple consisting of a pulley with
a governor brake and an endless rope.
The pulley is hooked to the top of a
ladder and those wishing to descend take
hold of the rope which slowly lets them
down. The boys are preparing to have
a large celebration on "Firemen's Day"
which comes on Labor Day, Sept 7th,
and will then give a public exhibition of
the fire escape. There will also be, on
that day, races and athletic contests,
something similar to those at a Fourth
of July celebration.
