A Fire Brigade Crusher. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 16 September 1897
A Fire Brigade Crusher. A short while ago a couple of Americans were visiting Cairns, and in their walks about the town hap- pened to pass the Central Fire Station. Attracted by the glittering; brass work on the engines, they stepped inside the station and had a look _ round. Presently one of them, addressing Mr W. Bowden, said : " Do you know in New York we use a nine-inch hose, not a paltry three-inch, such as you have here ?" . ; " Oh," replied the superintendent, " that small ? hose yon ave. is omlyj for J watering the station. This"-holding up i a section of twelve-inch suction hose-" is what -we use at fires. Be- sides, it saves the use of the fire escape. When we want to send a man to the top of a lofty building, we just place him on the top of the hose, turn the water on, and he is up there in no time." "Yes," remarked one of the visitors, "just so. But how docs he come down again ?" " Well," replied the superintendent, " he simph/ places his arms round the jet of water and ...

That Little Joke. HOW SHOW WEEK WAS MADE LIVELY. MCGINTY'S AC! IN OPERATION.^ THTÍNSPECTO^OFNÜISAN'CES APOLOGISES. SIiow and Raes week brought some choice visitors to Cairns fiom the countiy, and while some of them put in their spare time in laudable efforts to paint the town red, others found vent for the exuberance of their long-boitled up spirits in practical jokes. One of these jokes deserves a better fate than to be merely laughed at and foi gotten. Mis B-yines of the Crown Hotel always has her house full of country visitois. who know and appreciate her as an hostess from of old. On the evening of the second day of the Show, Mrs. Byrnes gave the C.A.T.S. a supper, and of course all the visitors from the country weie theie too. The evening was a pleasant one-decidedly pleasant -but everything must have an end, and when the supper party broke np, several members of the Herberton con- tingent strolled out in a purposeless sort of way prepared to strictly follow out the precept tau...
