The Record-Herald of Chicago says that the ambition of Fire Marshal Horan to have a fire department of 10-story firefighters has been gratified. The civil service commission has adopted a new set of requirements for appointment, whose new rules will bring men of large physique into the department, and, as a portion of the examination will be oral, an ability to write and figure correctly will not be of as much importance as formerly. The physical examination will count three points and the educational examination two points. Applicants may range in height from 5 ft. 8 in. to 6 ft, 5 in. and in weight from 150 to 250 lb.
