Ahrens Engine Test.
A delivery test was made of the second-size Continental fire engine at East St. Louis, Ill., last month. The city purchased the first Continental engine built by the Ahrens company some four years ago, and during that time the engine gave such satisfaction that the officials decided to place an order for another engine of the same class. The illustration shows one of the tests. Those who witnessed it were pleased with the performance of the engine, which more than met the requirements. The test was under the direction of Chief Dowling, and the engine was operated by C. F. and John P. Ahrens.
