The life depicted has a great deal of the charm of George Borrow. Chas. T. Holloway & Co. have received the contract to build for Lincoln hose company, No. 4, of Somerville, N. J., a double-tank (thirty-five gallons each), chemical fire engine of the latest improved pattern— The combination wagon for Albany, N. Y., was shipped from the works of the same firm.
