THREE GOOD SPECIAL NUMBERS. FIRE AND WATER ENGINEERING, New York, has issued three exceptionally fine special numbers in the past two months. On August 12 appeared the souvenir edition celebrating the thirty-third annual convention of the International Association of Fire Engineers; on September 2, the convention number in honor of the Central States Waterworks association meeting, and on September 9, another convention number for the New England Waterworks association. All the numbers were full of good advertising attractively presented in colored inks. The illustrations were particularly effective.—Editor and Publisher, New York.
