The baseball contest is growing
exciting, though there is now an indi
cation that the Hawaiis are too strong
for the other teams. This aggregation
now leads the bunch with 200 points
In last Sunday's game, however, the
A. A. Cs gave them a hot run for their
money right up to the last Inning
when a tied sore was broken by a
stiff rally, on the part of the Hawaiis.

to play ball.
The Hawaiis went to bat first. R.
Cockejt, the first man up reached first
base, and got second when Ah Kion
bunted. In the batting order that fol

hit Bill Hansen and crossed the plate
for six runs. They again scored one

opponents could not make up.
The A. A. Cs were unable to score

low Forest Fires Are
Discovered And Reported
Watchers On Lonely Moutaln Peaks
Spend All Of Daylight Hours Watch
ing For Smoke Must Report With.
In Three Minutes System Has Saw
ed Thousands Of Dollars In Property
SAN FRANCISCO, July 28. The
comparatively little damage done by
the hundred fires that have occured so
far this season on the National For
ests in California is due largely to the
fast work in discovering them by the
lookout men, according to the Forest
officers, The National Forests are
constantly under the eyes of trained
watchers stationed on high peaks dur
ing the fire season. There are 85
lookouts in the National Forests in
this State. Their work demands abil
ity to concentrate, keen eyesight,
quick judgment. No lookout man is
considered efficient who does not dis
cover, locate, and size up a fire with
in three minutes from the time the
smoke first appears above the tree
tops. Two minutes more are allowed
him to get the dispatcher on the tele
phone and deliver his report. The
tandard of the Forest Service de
mands that the dispatcher in turn
shall not be longer than two minutes
in communicating with the ranger
nearest the fire, delivering instruc
tions, and starting the fire suppres
sion force in motion.
This takes much practice on the
part of the lookout man particularly,
and in order to keep him up to the
mark and to test out his speed and ac
curacy, Forest inspectors occasionally
set false fires or smudges. The look
out's Job is said to be one of the lone
liest in the world", and is comparable
to that of the lighthouse keeper on a
rockbound coast, with this difference;
the lookout man is under a strain 16
to 18 hours a day watching for fires.
He is hired for the summer months
only, and is usually a homesteader,
miner, or prospector during the rest
of the year.
The lookout houses are built on
peaks from 6,000 to 10,000 feet high,
usually miles from the nearest human
habitation. They are often exposed to
the full force of the winds and storms.
Several houses have been struck by
lightning during recent years, although
they are studded with lightning rodB.
When Mt. Lassen first broke into
eruption a few years ago, the lookout
house on the rim of the crater was
smashed to kindling wood.
The house is seldom more than a
one-room square box, its sides large
ly of glass and its furnishings so ar
ranged that even' while cooking and
eating the occupant is able to keep
his eyes on the forest. Supplies are
packed into the lookout weekly by the
Forest rangers. Water and wood he
must obtain for himself, and at night
Watch is not kept for fires during the
hours of darkness. The lookout's
means of communication are the tele
phone and heliograph, and travelers
through the forest, attracted by mir-
rorlike flashes of light on some high
peak, may be observing a lookout
man reporting fire by "sun talk" or
receiving the latest gossip of camp
The discovery of fire by stationary
lookouts is a comparatively recent de
velopment in the National Forests
Before this method was used, it often
happened that fires burned for days
before discovery. It is now seldom
that a fire is not discovered within a
few minutes after its origin. Further
developments in the fire discovery
and suppression system of the Forest
Service are expected. The wireless
telegraph has been installed in one
forest in the Southwest, and a lookout
man circling above the forest in an
aeroplane, it is said, was used to
great advantage last summer in the
East. At the conclusion of the war,
with thousands of trained Aviators
and machines available, it is expected
that the aeroplane method of fire de
tection may become common in the
National Forests of California.
Tht Fruits Of Learning
Irving Bacheller, the novelist, hails
from Saint Lawrence County, which
Is the banner' Jft publican county of
New York State. He is quoted by the
Saturday Evening Post as saying tha
on (ho day after the first election of
Ueveland as president, the lone Demo
crat of one voting district of Saint
Lawrence County paraded all by him
self in honor of the victory, bearing
a banner upon which he had lettered
the words: "Education Done It!"
A fellow townsman, who had taken
an active part in the campaign upon
the other side, yelled from the side
walk: "Well, anyway, Hank, they
can t blame it on you education
never done nothin to you!"
Availing herself of her ecclesiasti
cal privileges, the clergyman's wife ac
cording to a story told by the Chicago
Herald asked questions which, com
ing from anybody else, would have
been thought impertinent.
"I presume you carry a memento of
some kind in that locket you wear?"
"Yes, ma'am," said the parishioner,
"It is a lock of my husband's hair."
"But your husband is still alive," the
