UMBESI, WAFTI,

Upper Congo, Africa,

To FIRE AND WATER: The local fire department of this place was called out to a great fire in the handsome summer bambooery of Heischreck Bla-bla on June 28. The ladder company reached the scene first, but the hose company was not far behind, and having made water connections soon flooded the place. I send you two photos of the event.
