Both Are Good!
FOR a sound, practical, explanation of FIRE AND WATER ENGINEERING’S value to its readers (and advertisers as well) in both the fire protection and water supply fields, it would be pretty hard to beat the following letter just received from Supt. Turping, of the Armstrong Water Co., Kittanning, Pa.
Let him speak for himself:
Fire and Water Engineering. New York City.
I was called into a conference recently in which the locating and relocating of fire hydrants was the main topic.
From that it covered fires, firemen and equipment. To make a long story short I held my own; surprised myself as well as others with my all-around knowledge of the above, and on thinking matters over afterward I concluded that quite a bit of that knowledge was gleaned through the consistent manner in which I read all of your valuable magazine.
I consider the fire section of your magazine equally as important, in my business as water superintendent, as the water department. Reading of the advertising matter and advertisements is necessary to keep up with the rapid development of equipment of fire and water apparatus and to know what s what when you come to purchase.
To say that I consider your magazine necessary or valuable is to put it mildly.
It is read by me from cover to cover almost immediately upon its receipt, either at my office or home. I don’t see how one in this business could do his best and be without its valuable news and suggestions.
Wishing you continued success, I remain,
Yours very truly,
(Signed) J. P. Turping.
Can you beat that? We ourselves have always known how good mother’s pastry was, but we are doubly glad when some one outside of the immediate family speaks up and says that both her apple pie and her mince pie are the best he ever tasted and he’ll take some of both, thank you.
