The Law and Forest Fires. Lou
Good citizens do not need the
law except as a protection from B
bad citizens. The law, however, The
is a good thing because it is the exte
only weapon civil society can use and
in tim4 of need. * new
At some time that need is more disti
apparent than at other times. In ishe
some cases when the application tron
and enforcement of some particu- Wit
lar law is especially in need for hav
the benefit of the country at large. fifty
Our District Judges call speci. hav
ally to the attention of the Dis- whil
trict Attorney and Grand Jury ter i
the necessity of its enforcement. E
All laws are to be kept, good or to it
bad, until they are repealed. tive
There are laws which, if en- and
forced, would prevent the spread for
of the annual indiscriminate waS
woods grass fires. There never the
was a time in the history of this gra
country when the rigid enforce' Solt
ment of the law would do the will
country so much good as now. 1,
Every one at all familiar with the aro
situation knows how all the waste iug,
lands are covered with little pine oI
Strees, whibh, if undisturbed by 2
fire for one year even, will get d)

If the citizens of the country link
d would ball the attention of the Dis. I
e trict Judge to this fact, he would wit
be glad, do doubt, to charge his 4
court officere especially, to look ty
out for violators of this kind, wo
The farmers of this section of 5
Louisiana oughtto be especially the
interested in the enforcement of the
the laws relative to forest and (
woods grass fires, Notwithetand. eer
ing large timber land owners, the Ito
farmers own more forestry and Ista
timbered land than all the other 1
people put -together. Secretary wil
Merideth of the Department of the
SAgriculture of the United States w1
Government said this year in a ag
lnews letter isdued by his Depart. de
. ment, that statistios show that al1
farmers in the United States East otl
of the Rooky Mountains own three ti%
is fifths of all timbered and forestry to
nt lands. The assessment, rolls in
nthese piney woods parishes will ke
er likely show that they own more Ps
Sthan 50 percent of this area. Then to
en practic.lly all the land owned by pl
Ind farmers which is not in actual
oultivation, has been or is now sh
ir covered with timber. If it is not
now covered with timber it is be. ol
cause the timber was out off, and ia
jt it will come back again from the
ied 1920 seed fall if the fire is kept o0
red out. On an average lees than 25 tt
in. percent of the land owned by our
farmers ie cultivated. It is doubt. ti
