The soil of the Missouri Slope Is
this season proving that as a drouth
resister it has no equal anywhere
was it otherwise there could be no•
vegetation alive whatever. Twenty
years ago when prairie fires annually
swept the country the conditions were
the reverse the uplands were parch
ed and barren of vegetation during
dry seasons. Thus protection of the$50,000
wild hay from prairie fires has given
it a chance to root deeply and to cov
er the ground with a solidly woven
mat of grass that in turn protects
the ground from the moisture-sapping
influence of the sun.
This is a lesson learned through
observations during nearly thirty
years. A prairie fire at this time
is about the most destructive thing
could happen. Vegetation is
tremely dry and a fire fanned by a
brisk wind will destroy all homes,
which are not protected, along with
the precious prairie grass. There is
pienty of time to make fire guards
and there is no excuse for any indi
vidual property or for any part of
the Missouri Slope district being de-
