A LESSON FROM BALTIMORE.

A LESSON FROM BALTIMORE.

Says Edward Atkinson: “If the real lesson taught by the Baltimore conflagration shall lead that city to provide a complete system of water supply, if possible, not only from reservoirs, but also from the water side; if the height of buildings is suitably limited not only for purposes of safety, but to maintain the right light and air in every neighborhood: if roof-hydrants and other adequate supplies of water at vantage points are distributed, then in a very few years Baltimore will have gained immensely in its position at a cost of the private and insurance losses of the present time, and will set a lesson to other cities which has ever been only half-learned or not learned at all.”

The Milford, Tex., Waterworks company has been incorporated, with a capital of $3,500.
