PRAIRIE FIRES SURE TO OCCUR THIS FAIL Wherever prairie fires can do dam age to hfiy, buildings, fences, or oth er property, extra! precautions and safeguards must be taken this fall, to protect against loss. This year there is a heavy growth of grass and fire well started will sweep over much territory. Ordinary fire guards will not be a certain protection this, year. Considerable ploughing will be necessary around -farm homes to protect them. Hay-left in the field will surply. be destroyed should a fire run over the prairie. All hay should therefore be hauled and-stack7 ed on ploughed fields where it. can be protected. The three most common sourceq of fires are engine sparks, fire from cjgar or cigarette stubs and camp fires. COWS AND POTATOES CAUSED THE CHANGE A. R. Thompson autoed last week thru -east central Minnesota and Was greatly surprised at the remarkable improvements, progress an dappar ent prosperity or that part of the state, which had come about since h}s last visit there in 1897. That section of Minnesota, then was but a stump- country of brush, second growth timber, and sand. Now -it has beeri cleared and the little, stag nant villages of those days become prosperous, up-to-date cities states Mr. Thompson. Asking a resident the source of the evident, prosperity the reply was "cows and potatoes.'1 That land which a few years ago, af ter the timber was. cut, didri't seem worth 10 cents an acre, now is held at flOO.an acre. It cost about $40.00 an acre to clear the land of Btumps and bring the soil up to a productive point with clover and stock, but the result have been worth' the invest ment. and' now the' farmers in that vicinity would not think of depend ing-upon grain crops for their source of income.
