Fire Extinguisher Manufacturing Company. An exhibit that was not down on the programme, as it were, was the great display of Babcock fire extinguishers that one ran across in the most peculiar places in all parts of all the great buildings. The precaution against fire was a matter that invited the closest attention of the World’s Fair commissioners, and which was happily met by the Fire Extinguisher Manufacturing Company of Chicago in their chemical engines and extinguishers. These, as we have said, were encountered everywhere, and must have numbered several thousand. The feeling of security indulged by the people at sight of these powerful apparatus is the best proof of their value and popularity.
