The first truck was damaged in 1918 and another one, similar to the first, was put in service. From then on it was a changing procession of_ ever increasing fire-fighting efficiency, as the speed of trucks was stepped up and new firefighting methods devised. The scene of the Fourth ward truck arriving at fires is a never to be forgotten one. Closing the doors of the historic hose house ends another spectacular episode in the city's history.

It was a long step forward in giving better fire protection and Fourth ward residents were rightly proud of their new piece 1 of fire-fighting equipment. Prize for Horses Because no team of horses was kept at the hose house, the traction for the new fire wagon was supplied by horses of nearby residents. It was a rule that the first man to get a team of horses to the hose house received $5. If, however, it turned out to be a false alarm, (they had them in those days too) only $3 was paid. There were no regulations as to whom the horses had to be from. Anyone could compete for the fee. Sometimes farmers passing by would unhitch their teams and rush them over. With $5 in the offering, it is surprising with what speed the whole process could be completed. For almost 30 years this horse- drawn wagon was the sole means of combatting fires. Then modernity crept in and the spectacular age of the horse- drawn fire wagon was taking its final bow. In 1917 the fire de,. ... . , partment purchased a Model-T lighting in those days was a Ford fire truck and placed it in far cry from modern efficient' service. Oddly enough, the Fourth Ward Station Prominent in History (Continued from Page 1) was serving as assistant captain under Captain Joe St. Pierre. Other members of the force included William Adams, George Barber, James Reardon, Charles Spice, Dennis Carroll, Ole Anderson, George McMullin, Greenwald and James Mahon. The first piece of fire fighting apparatus at the hose house was a hand-drawn hose-cart, a two- wheeled affair with a couple of ladders hooked on the side.

These retailers, and the jobbers who serve them, have built up a service of courtesy and convenience unmatched by any other industry catering to the American public's pleasure. THERE ARE ANOTHER MILLION people who are engaged directly or indirectly in the transportation of cigarettes to every town, hamlet and crossroads. IT IS ESTIMATED that there are 1,602,000 tobacco farmers raising tobacco in 20 out of the 48 states. Good tobacco is one of the hardest crops to raise and bring to market, requiring great skill and patience from seed-bed planting to harvesting and curing. The modern tobacco farmer has done well the job of constantly improving the quality of his product. .HE AVERAGE LENGTH of service of the 13,230 people working in the Chesterfield factories, storage houses, leaf-handling and redrying plants is over 10 years. This means that every step in the making of Chesterfields, regardless of how small, is handled by people who have had 10 years of experience and ability in knowing their jobs.
