The Reading Fire Department, with its 2.000 finely - equipped members and first - class appa ratus, now ranks as the unest volunteer organi zation in the United states, and its fame has even gone beyond the seas. This is no idle assertion, for yesterday Mayor Evans received a letter from Mr. C. Kindt, Commissioner of the Fire Department of Fraokfort on - tbe Main, Germany, in which he states that "on perusing the columns of the New Y'ork Fire Record for the year 1875, 1 hnd a notice referring to some of the fiuest hose carriages built in your conn - try, and one especially sent to your Liberty Fire Company by a Philadelphia maker. If you have a photograph of this carriage, please send us one, and also mention the full and correct address of the maker thereof." Mr. Kindt also pays tbe following direct complimeut toour Reading Fire Department : "Having learned that your Department ranges among those best managed in your country, having the reputation of one of tbe most active Fire Departments we have heard of, and one which reflects credit upon the third city in your 8tate, it would be very gratifying to me to thus obtain some more detailed and accurate account of ita organization aud the working thereof." these are complimentary words, bnt tbev are deservedly so, and they must but encourage our iremen in tbeirenorts to attain a higher state of fficiency tbau they have yet attained. The Mayor will place the letter in tbe hands of Chief Engineer Boyer, and a proper acknowl - edgement of it contents will be made. - lt able of Ur. can as
