SCIENTIFIC PROCRESS. Science brings forward nothing in the fire fighting field which is a more valuable improvement than the Baker cellar pipe, about which so much has already been said on account of the interest it creates wherever it is seen by fire department officials. Mr. Richardson, the proprietor of the Combination Ladder Company, who manufactures the pipe, says that he has received inquiries and orders from nearly all over the United States and during just the past week he has received orders from Worcester, Mass., Jersey City, N. J., Hoboken, N. J., Trenton, N. J. It is an invention never before attempted by any one; and its wonderful power to control streams, ranks it very high. Being the only invention of the kind.it seems as though it must become a friend to, and the favorite of all firemen.
