Issue 5 and Volume 1891 10.

The Wilson Fire Escape. The Wilson Manufacturing Company, 12 Barclay street, New York, reports considerable increase in the sales of the Wilson fire escape last week. Among those to adopt it are : Hotel Castleton, Staten Island; Hotel St. Stephens. Eleventh street, New York; Kenilworth Inn, Biltmore, N. C., and the Ovide Musin Dramatic Company. The manager of the latter, R. E. Johnston, who was in the recent big hotel fire in Syracuse, distinguished himself by getting down the stairs safely from the top floor with his cork leg under one arm and a lady he was saving under the other, He decided, however, not to take any further chances, hence provided each member of his company with a Wilson fire escape.
