I. A. F. E. CONVENTION.
Chiefs, fire commissioners and those responsible for maintaining the fire service of their municipalities in the highest state of efficiency should make arrangements at once for attending the convention of the International Association of Fire Engineers at Providence. It is the one annual opportunity that the chiefs have to study the newest apparatus and methods employed in first class departments to keep down the fire loss. It will prove a good investment to provide for their attendance as the city or town sending them will obtain one hundred fold benefit by the instruction received at the meeting Make arrangements now and write the Scrctary, Janies McFall, Roanoke, Va., advising him that the commissioner and chief will attend. Delegates from the West can secure transportation by addressing Mr. Frank C. Stover, Chicago, who has arranged for a special train to leave that city at 11.30 a. m., Sunday, August 27th.
