Van Hook of Helena lias just issued a limelv warn ing urging all campers to he careful and thoroughly extinguish camp fires,| so as to minimize the danger of fire in Montana's forests. Camping out is now becoming a la vorite diversion for many Montanans, and in this eouiify many families spend considerable time in outing;; in tlie Snowies, Judith, along Flat willow and in other pretty spots. Mr. Van Hook's remarks are thus of interest to all. His statements is as follows; Protect State's Timber. "Tlie eool weather and numerous rains have reduced the fire hazard up to the present time. A few days of hot weather accompanied hv hoi winds will put the danger mark to llml point where every precaution will tie neces sury to protect the Umber of lie- slab from forest fires, and thereby save lo the school children, of Montana thou sands of dollars as well as private property and probably lives. "During the fires in Idaho and Mon tana in 1910 there was over ninety lives lost. (90) lives lost. Causes of Fires. "The records of fires in Montana allow that on an average, fires have been caused in the following propor tions: Railroads 50 per cent,; light ning 30 per cent.; campers, travelers, emokers and other miscellaneous causes 20 per cent, In other words, 70 per cent, of the total number if files that have occurred during the dry season in 1911 in Montana were caused b> carelessness in one form or a noth ' er. One apparently harmless coup fire last season started a Vires', fire 'which burned over 17,000 acres of land. "Until tlie average citizen realizes the possibilities of danger in i very match, in every cigar stub. In every pipe, or in every spark of fire of what ; ever nature, and makes the 1 ecessary effort to extinguish it, tlie number of forest fires resulting from careless ness will not materially decrease. 1.C00 Blazes Last Year. | "During the month of June, July, i August and September of last year, there were over 1,600 fires. Owing to the efficient organization of tlie I ni i red States forest service, tlie Northern !

"The responsibility of reducing a large per cent, of this great loss to tlie state rests with you, all that i asked and all that is necessarv is, for each one of you to use a little more precaution bv using plontv of ! water in extinguishing your camp fires, ; and by being careful while smoking in the woods or on the prairie.
