Mr. Marmion has accepted a position
as telegraph operator, and where they'
will make their future home. The
bride was formerly from Donaldson
ville, La., and the groom frmm Vic

them much happiness.-Beaumont

Persons have been known to
gain a poundadayby taking an
ounce of Scott's Emulsion. It'
is strange, but it often happens.
Somehow the ounce produces
the pound; it seems to start
the digestive machinery going
properly, so that the patient is
able to digest and absorb his
,ordinary food which he could
not do before, and that is the
way the gain is made.

necessary for health; if you

flow Do Forest Fires Start?
What starts these forest fires? This
ques:.iou has been asked over ar o-er
ag tin this summer by readers P
accounts of the destructive fires wc.
have been raging in all parts of the
Dampers and locomatives, is the
usual answer. Many of the other
things which start blazes in the fores
are forgotteo. It i= true that erhsa=r
one half to three fourths the for-s
fires do begin as a result of the care
lessness of some camper, or fron
sp:o ks flying from locomotives, hut
there are a number of things which set
the woods a fire.
A complete report of forest fires on
the private forets of the courtrt ard
their causes is not kept by aoyone.
Urcie S n, however, is most careful
to account for the damage done by the
blazes o his timberland under forest
admttnissrati+n, aggregating aiout
178,UO0,tt000 acr-s, nd each year he
total area burned over, the timber and
burned over, the amoturt of t.uber
desroved and its value, the cost of
filhting fires, and the causes of fires
ate carefully checked up. Thes' re
ports are male tt the rel of ti c..
eudar year, and the annouce -LL ci of
this year's mosser will therefore not be
arowo for more =h to two reuctns.
La t )ear's figures, however, v. a
good idea of the things which se
fires in torests. Of toe 1335 fires dis
covered on the National tForestr 'ast
year, all of which were checked oy she
rangers before they had burned over
fourteen hundredths of on' per cent of
the National Forest area, cimpers
caused 346, while railroads fo d
with 273; lightning caine next with 1h6;
donkey engines used in lumbering
overations were fourth, with 36; care
less brush burning by hom:este.ders
clearing land, 34; fires caused by
in endiaries and those set by herders
and hunters, 30. For more than 400
of the fires the cause is not known.
This is not strange when it is remem
bered that a fire may smolder for days,
if the air is too thick to permit the
smoke to be seen at t distance before
it breaks out when fanned by a wind
so as to reveal its presence to the
watchful foist officer.
While campers caused more fires
than locomotives last year, there are
many seasons when the railroads hold
undisputed claim to first place. For
est fires started by both are mostly un
necessary. If campers would exercise
care in starting camp fires and be
sure that they are extinguished before
they are left, and if the cailroud com
pauies would use the most modern and
efficient spark arresters, it is reason
abhe to think that the annual forest fire
liss cound be reduced more than one
iinf. Lightning ranks third Luuong
the causes of fires, and, of course, man
has no greater responsibility in his
ca-e than to put the fire out as soon as
possible after discovery. C trele-s
bru h burning by homesteade and
persons clearing land is said t_ he
cause of many of the fires which .. e
started this year, particularly those
which have swept over the Lake states.
The ranger force on many of the Na
tinual Forests has been l'eot busy
fighting fires which, if left to tun un
checked, wou!d have done incalcu'ahle
damage. By quickening communica
tion between important points through
the construction of telephone lines,
and building roads and trails, the Na
tional Fotests have been made more
accessible during the past two years
and fire fighting has been greatly
