Ho Saved the Lives of His Men at
the Point of a Gun.
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

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."

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.
