OUR PORTRAITS. We would call the attention of our readers, not only to the number, but the excellence of our portraits, which in themselves form a very complete portrait gallery of the principal fire chiefs, manufacturers, and dealers in fire service supplies in the United States, Canada, and elsewhere. It may also be pointed out that the majority of these portraits have been made from photographs received by FIRE AND WATER during the past month. They are, therefore, thoroughly up-to-date. It may be added that these United States chiefs watch over the lives and property of 15,000,000 of their fellow countrymen, and guard them against fire—a charge to which they have never proved recreant.
