California is the great outdoor j
state.' April, with its bright, warm
day?, starts everybody toward, the
woods and fields, where they stay as
long as possible and come back tired
and sunburned, but renewed in body
and mind. Every weekend sees thou
sands on their way to some favorite
stream or grove, there to enjoy, the
beauties of nature and breathe the
wholesome country air.
They hunt. fish, tramp, rest in the
shade of pome g-iant tree or linger alongf
fche banks of some "wonderful wooded
stream." A favorite retreat is a camp
In. a picturesque prove, and on» of the ]
most enjoyable diversions is borUingr,
especial!:- where the river banks are
Uned with majestic trees and graceful;
overhanging bushes.
Outdoor California is a great, natural
park;* with-.eyery.,attract!pn of ; moHn-«
tatn', field and stream. Z Tet how many
have ever paused to consider that It
all depends on the forests. How* many
have ever tried to imagine what the
hills would be, without any trees or
ehrubs, how barren the mountains
would appear without the forests, how
forbidding , the streams without the
borders of bushes. Take away the for
ests and there would be no outdoor
California— none of the inspiring wild
ress that calls those who toil in cities
to come out to commune with nature.
Barren mountain sides and deep, naked
canyons would oppress and repulse.
Only the cool shade of the tress and j
the whispering winds among the
branches can give the rest and Inspira
tion and strength that man seeks in the
Yet how many, knowing that it all
ends on the forests, are careful
abaut fires? How many throw burn
ins cigars !or cigarette stubs or
matches Into dry grass or weeds with
out thinking? How many leave camp
flres burning or build them against
Togs or stumps where they can not
be put out?
All the people are interested in the
forests. Not only those who go to the
country for rest and pleasure, but the
■farmers, the merchant?, the railroads
and every industry and occupation of
man are benefited by the fact that our
liills and mountains are not barren, but
are covered with great'forest growths.
And there is another reason why
irnera in the woods should be
careful about fire. Many of the for
ests are private property. The owners
ere glad to allow people the privilege
of enjoying themselves in the groves
and along the streams, hunting, fishing,
camping-, tramping, traveling or other
- Bwlse, and ask nothing in return except
that they be. careful about fire.
Besides, if a fire starts in a. forest
it is .very apt to spread, to , the .sur
rounding ranges and In addition to de
stroying- the trees, burn thousands of
acres of grass and cover growth.; ; .■
Fanned by a strong wind, such a
fire travels with Incredible rapidity,
find fences, houses, barns, sometimes
even human life— are destroyed. j
Trees that have been growing hun
dreds, perhaps thousands, of years and
improvements that may have been the
work of a lifetime, can be destroyed
In a few hours by the fire started from :
a burning cigarette or a spark from a
campflre.. ..;-. . r -■->■ ■•.>•"■•
The owners of timber in California
spend thousands of dollars every year
to protect the forests from fire, and
those who enjoy , their outings among
the trees and along "the streams
should co-operate with them to the
extent of using every/precaution to ;
prevent fires, and in making : every;ef- ■
fort to spread the alarm if they see
o.ne starting, provided they can not ,
put It out.
The forest counties of California
reap. a rich harvest from the : tourists
and summer boarders. None of these
people would go to these counties if \
there were no forests. Deserts and
barren mountains would not attract
them. For this reason, every farmer,
every , business main, and every V pro
fessional man in every forest county In ;
California, should co-operate f in the
effort to prevent: forest tires. It. is a
business proposition to . all :of them.
The income from the people who go
there on account of the forests amounts
to thousands of dollars every year,
and ■caches every one, even the re
motest farmer. The farther they can
set away from the beaten paths the
better it pleases the summer tourists.
And the emphasis must be placed on
prevent. • Fires must be prevented in
forests. If they; ever ~ get well started
It is almost impossible to control or
etop them. They cease , only ;'when
everything in their path has 'I \ been
burned. Care will prevent them, and
that is I the ; only ? way to avoid .* the
loss a forest lire, will cause. V.*,'. •,.;-. -
Many firr-s arc started by people who
toss burning matches, 'cigars,- or < igar
• ttee into the grass or timber along
tn* roadside' as they travel.

men were under orders of Vincent St. i

says, can be proved by an examination i
