Bier without a sweater she is a rare
specimen of femininity. Its uses are
infinite and too many to enumer
ate. Each year the type of sweater
varies. Last season we had the long
style, and this summer the longer
lengths are still modish, but the differ
cence in this year's sweater is in the
wweave. The Illustration shows one of

b., That cheerful farce known to tho
public as an "inquiry into the causes
of tbe cost of living" assumes more
amazing proportions day by day. Some
body or something is to blame for the
prohibitive prices which mock our in
digence, and under no circumstances
may the sensitive feelings of the pro
tectionists be hurt. Consequently po

enough to share the frank Indifference

is unreasonably dear be
cause of the "extravagant willingness
of women to pay for them."

NORTHWEST FOREST FIRES
Most Destructive of Life and Prop
erty Sinoe 1902.
Seattle, July 27 -Despite what effort,
the state authorities have been able to
put forth with the limited means at
their command, the worst forest fires
since 1902 have been raging in various
parts of Washington during the past
two weeks. Twelve lives were lost io
two days during the worst of the fires,
according to newspaper dispatches from
various points in the state, and the
property loss will amount to hundreds
of thousands, possibly millions. The
dry season this year began early and has
been very pronounced. Also there has
been the usual carelessness of leaving
camp fires. The state, although it de
rives more than one-half of its taxes
from its timber and lumber interests,
appropriates only about |25,000 a year
toward forest protection against fires.
Most of the fire protection work done is
carried on by the Washington Forest
Fire Association, an organisation sup
ported by tbe lumbermen of the state,
and this association, with the scanty
number of fire wardens paid by the state,
has done much to keep down the number
of tires this summer. This association
ia constantly sending out literature warn
ing settlers, campers and others against
careless acts which result in bad fires,
and the patrolmen of the association
manage to discover and put out many
small fires before they have spread to a
serious extent, but once a big forest fire
has started nothing but Providence has
any control over it. Washington is lob
ing millions upon millions of feet of tim
ber each year, and every tree burned is
just so much wealth taken not only from
tbe individual owner, but from the tax
able wealth of the state.
The first all steel train that ever
moved over a roadbed in the Northwest
pulled out of Seattle on July 20 over
the Oregon & Washington line for Port
land. The eteel train marked an epoch
in Northwest railroading, being made up
of the most modern equipment used
anywhere in the world. The day when
old half worn out coaches from eastern
lines can be seat west for use in their old
age hat* parsed. Tbe steel coaches built
for the O &. W. will not splinter, telescope
or burn in case of accident, and are
easily the finest railroad equipment ever
seen in the Northwest.
The effort of the Anti-Saloon League
of Washington to pass a county local
option law, which will be made at the
session of the 1911 legislature, is already
being felt in the early campaign for seats
in that legislature. Candidates for the
primaries of September 13 have now be
gun to file their official announcements
of candidacy, and the Anti-Saloon
League is at work sounding each candi
date to learn where he stands on the
local option question, and either sup
porting or opposing him accordingly.
Under the present local option law in
this state a great many smaller cities
and country districts have voted "dry,"
but there has been no effort to dry up
the hig cities, and some of the smaller
oues have preferred to stay wet. But if
local option by tbe county unit is made
a law, it will be possible in many coun
ties to dry up the cities by the force of
the country vote. They tried to make
the county the local option unit in the
law of 1909, but could not get any bet
ter than the township unit. Tbe league
will introduce a bill at tbe next legisla
ture making the manufacture as well as
the sale of liquor unlawful in "dry"
