The ladder was taken down and agsin raised as before in one mmnte. J. no. crew were then ordered to ascend with a lead of hose, which they did, and water was forced by the steam engines through small hose, a thin stream of water, probably half" an inch thick, being being forced throogh the nozzle, sufficient taextinguishafireinitsincipieDcy. Alter the ability to carry hose to snch a gTeat height and force water through it- it- had been sufficiently well demonstrated, demonstrated, the men were ordered down and the ladder again placed on the truck.

The hose of the two steam engines wa. then Siamesed tbat ia ran together together into a larger hose and a two-fech two-fech two-fech stream of waujj1 forced through by tbe two engines combined. By this method large volumes of water can be forced through a single lead of hose, and if thrown on a tire would rapidly drown it out. .....
