Forest Conflagrations Con
tinue to Increase in Seri
ousness-City Covered by,
The federal employment agency is
sending, on the average, 100 men al
day to fight forest fires. The fires
are continuing, and in many in
stances, increasing in fury. The
fires which menace the most valu
able timber are in the Clearwater
No towns, at the present time,
seem to be in danger. The fire
closest to Butte is at Homesteak, 10
miles out. It was freshened up last
night by a strong wind, and is burn
ing fiercely today.
Yesterday afternoon a pall of
smoke descended on Butte, and as
the day progressed into night, be
came more dense. By midnight the
city was covered with a blanket of
cinders and ashes and considerable
discomfort was caused the citizens.
The smoke had cleared away partly
by this morning, a fortitnous change
of wind bearing the smoke clouds
in another direction.
While most of time residents be
lieved the smoke was caused by the
fire at Homestake or the one near
Maidenrock, forest officials expressed
Ihe opinion that it came from the
western part of the state and east
SUIRRO UND)EI) IY 1,'Al1ES.
Spokane, Aug. 20.--Women and
children are being rushed to safety,
hundreds of heads of stock have
been destroyed and several ranches
have been burned north of Missoula,
as a result of the forest fires. The
flames are beyond control. Mlonlarch,
Mlontana, in the miountainis, is sur
rounded by flames, with the entire
popiulation forming a living barrier
against the fire. It is feared that
several lives have bcan lost.
The Placer Creek fire near Wal
lace is spreading rapidly and the
Solway, Nez Perc and Clearwater
fires are out of control.
Missoula, Aug. 20.---Four ranch
properties ruined, including the
plant of the Montana Silver Black
Fox company in Spring gulch, is the
toll of a disastrous forest fire which
swept into the lower Rattlesnake,
five miles from Missoula. The fire,
by far the mnost disastrouns which has
bhlrned close to M issonla in years,
was still raging unchecked and fan
ned by a high wind, was threatening
to destroy a half dozen other
ranches in tihe region.
Ten forest firemen who were cut
off by the flames, which leaped
across tIhe narrow defile of Spring
gulch, escapled, but Jacob Curry, an
aged rancher of the district. who also
was cut off. may have lost his life
in the blazing forests. Up to a late
hour last night no word of hin had
He is known to have been the dis
coverer of the fire as it applroached
the region, and after sending thle
members of his famnily out to safety,
he remained to fight a losing battle
in an attempt to save his property.
His ranch was destroyed.
The stories of narrow escapes, of
thrilling rescues and of daring ex
ploits by the residents and forestry
officials were many, but none of
them surpassed inl its dramatic fea
tures the rescue of Mrs. Mark Poe
and her children, who live about two
miles north of tihe Effinger bridge.
When the fire had leaped the
highway and the Rattlesnake creek
across to the hills east, Mrs. Poe and
the children, wrapped inl water
soaked blantkets to protect themn fromn
the sparks which flew before tile
wind, and to render them less likely
to injury as blazing trees and brush
fell across the roadway, were rushed
to an automnobile and brought out of
the veritable fu rnace which lay
south of th ir ranch by Forest Rang
er Rush and E. Bell.
The 10 fire fighters who were cut
off in Spring gulch were unable to
advance to the east, and they es
caped by the process of following the
fire as it worked its way down the
gulch, destroying all in its 1path.
When they finally reached the Fox
conlmpany's farmn they were eagerly
questioned regarding Mr. Curry, but
noile could give information conl-i
cerning himn or his fate.
These imen were fanmishing with
hunger, and when they arrived ate

George Snook Ranc(h Endlangereld.
Another ranch which was serious
ly endangered by tlhe fire was that
of George Snook, which is located
about five miles above the Effinger
bridge. -Mr. Snook, with his wife and
son Flred, wore at the ranch early in
the evening, and an automnobile was
sent in through the fire-infested re
gion to bring them out, under the
direction of Supervisor Rutledge
Parker, who is in charge of the fire
fighting. Mr. Snook's daughter,
Mrs. John Pappas, who was at the
failily residence in tIhe city, went ;as
far as the Effinger bridge and there
awaited the return of the machine.
One of the most seriously threat
ened ranches of the region, that of
the Effinger family, was surrounded
on three sides by the fire at 9
o'clock last night. but despite every
effort of the fighters, even to threats
of bringing them out of their home
by force, the members of the family
refused to be moved. Mrs. Effinger,
the aged mother of the family, who
can speak only Glerman, was taken
out and brought to Missoula, but she
protested so loudly that, after sho
had been taken to Sheriff Green, he:
returned her to iher htome. All for

creek region a very real one, and
Charles Gould of the forest service
was dispatched to the vicinity to

ers there. of the danger.
