For Thirty-Three Years He Has
Fought Fires in This City.

"A man who has served thirty-three years on the fire department is entitled to three months' leave of absence," commented Alderman Miles Bulger in the lower house of the council last night, when he presented a resolution giving a leave of absence for three months to Alexander Henderson, first chief of the fire department.

To Bulger's sentiments there was a unanimity of approval, and the ordinance went through with a rush. The upper house of the council has to yet pass on the ordinance. If that body complies with the actions of the lower branch Mr. Henderson will spend his vacation in Old Mexico.
