Overton W. Price, vice president of the National Conservation Association whose book, 'The Land We Live In," appears this fall, tells this story of an heroic forest ranger: "The summer of 1310." he says, "by reason of great drought and unus ually high winds was the worst for forest fires that the west has ever known. In Montana, Idaho and Ore gon the danger was greatest. "On the Coeur d'Alene national for est in northern Idaho, Ranger Pulaski had under him forty men, who after many hours of hard work had got a big fire practically under control. Suddenly the wind strengthened until it blew a gale. It immediately be came a question of saving the lives of the men. The fire fighters were in deep forest many miles from a rail road and far from any clearing. "Pulaski remembered that within a mile of where they were working there was an abandoned mine sdiaft running back about forty feet into the": hillside. He rushed his men to the "shaft as quickly as possible, and told them as they passed through their camp to catch up their blankets as th. y ran. Tin- shaft reached. Pul-at-ki hurried his m n into it, and packed like sardin.s they filled it up. Pulaski placed hims lf at the opening, across which he stretched a blanket. "Within a few minutes after the men v. ere in the shaft the fire came. The blanket at the opening caught and Pulaski jerked it away and hung up another, which caught in its turn, ""he blanket caught again and again, and each time Pulaski replaced it, until toward the last he held the blanket across tin cpening with his bare hands. "The shaft grew hotter and hotter and the. smoke and fumes grew thicker and thicker, until the men's 'sufferings were almost beyond hu man endurance. They began to break for the opening. Pulaski. whost j strength was great like his courage, jfor a while forced thoin back. See ing tnat lie wouiu soon ne overpow ered and that hits men would rush to their certain death, he drew his re volver and said that he would kill the first man who broke away. "In perhaps twenty minutes the worst of the fire paused by. Five of the men in the shaft were dead from suffocation; the thirty-five others were alive. Pulaski was blinded and seriously burned upon the face and ;arms. It was three months before j his sight was partly restored. Had not his heroism and presence of mind been what they were he would have lost all of his men instead of five. That is the kind of men there are In the forest service." New York Sun. THE LAW Irv BERLIN. Berlin law certainly seems far reacning. ueeause he laugheu, an ironworker employed in that city was. the other day, sent to prison for a week. Going along the street he saw a merrymaker being chased by a par ticularly stout policeman, and the sight tickled him. He was promptly haled before the court for scandal. Another man attempted to get into a moving train and fractured his leg. After six months in the hospital he was discharged cured, when the state railway department at once prose cuted him for breuking their regula tions The law and leg breaker was fined. Stepping into an omnibus, a man trod on the foot of a woman, who was so annoyed that she said he walked like a hen. She was fined J5 for using this term of reproach. Bystander.

Up in Harlem is a grocer with a horse that has one of the strangest appetites ever known to the equine species. He likes ice. He seems fair ly to crave it. If the piece is too big for him to get into his mouth ind crunch up he will lick it until it is small enough, and then he will chew it as many horses chew sugar. When he sees his master coming to ward him with some ice he will whinny for it like another horse for a meal of oats. "He's been that way ever since he was born," said the horse's master. "He was born in midwinter, up in tlie northern part of the state, and I guess that's the reason. He doesn't care for crushed or shaven ice. He wants it in chunks, so he can chew on it. When he is in his stall we put it right in with Ills corn. He will take a big bite of ice, and after it is chewed up will eat corn, for a while. It never seems to hurt him." New York Herald. Railway Question As one of the taxpayers of Phoenix and also as one of" the Republican voters who helped elect the present city officials, I wish to ask you a few questions: Why does the Phoenix Street Railway Co. operate cars with only one man to a car instead of two men? Why does the City Council not compel the street car company to remove their poles from the middle of West Adams street where they are a menace to life and limb? Why does the City Council not force the street car com pany to operate cars fit for people to ride upon safe, clean and comfortable, as in other cities of this size? Why does the street car company operate cars at night with no distinguishing lights to signify their destina tion? Why does not the City Council force the car company to place their overhead wires in a safe condition, especially in the western part of town? Why does the City Council allow the street car company to operate open cars, with no protection to the passen gers, on cold or rainy days, especially rainy days? Why does the City Council not forbid the running of those small combination cars known as "The Yellow Peril" to all passengers? Why do Phoenix street cars run through our streets minus fenders or any pro tection whatever to pedestrians? Why does not the company issue transfers when they are asked for instead of delaying the whole carload of passengers at the transfer point? Why is a transfer issued on the Washington-street line not accepted as full fare to the Indian school terminal? Why does not our City Council do their duty to the citizens of Phoenix by forcing the street car company to render safe, comfortable and convenient ser vice? Surely there is not a member of our City Council who is not aware of the gen eral dissatisfaction with the prevailing conditions, and still not a word is spoken or a move made to improve things. If the Mayor and Councilmen are unwilling to assist the people of Phoenix to a better condition of affairs, we want to know it also their reasons. Please let your answer have as much publicity as possible, as hundreds of voters, both Re publicans and Democrats, are criticizing our present council for their seeming in difference to the present deplorable state of affairs. Awaiting your early reply, I am, Yours very truly, L. GARESCHE. An Open Letter to Mayor Christy and the City Council.
