is no new doctrine. Ths Lohisiana
Legislature in Act No. 232, of 1920 pro

his land, and destroying saplings and
young tree growth, the cost of artifi.
cilly planting and cultivating such
growth to the point of development at
the time of fire. About five 'thousand
years bsfore this enactment, Moses,
the Hebrew law-giver, enacted (Exo
duts xxl:6): "If a fire break out and
catch in thorns, so that stocks of corn,
or the standing corn, or the field be
consumed therewith; he that kindled
the fire shall surely make restitution."
The disastrous effect of forest fires
is graphlcally shown in Joel, chapter
I, verses 18, 19 and 20:
"How do the beasts groan! the herds
