OROFINO, CLEARWATER COUNTY, IDAHO VOLUMÇ VII NUMBER 38 FRIDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1918. CHAS. A. FISHER REPORTS CLEARWATER TIMBER FIRFS The following estray cattle are at the E. C. Chase farm near Ahsahka, 4 miles below Orofino: ] 8 head cattle, 5 of them whiteface; 1 i two yr old steer; three cows, one with j bell. One red yearling heifer, with a ! îew small white spots; one red steer I calf. All branded right hip near back- ; bone with either JH or H4. Fork in ! left ear and undercut in right ear. 38 Chas. A. Fisher, secretary-treasurer and fire warden of the Clearwater Timber Protective associatiou, attended the meeting of the board of directors in Spokane this week. Mr. Fisher's report shows that there were 62 fires during last fire season, burning over 8800 acres, with an ap proximate loss of 4,600,000 feet of tim ber. The association patrols 800,000 acres of timber land in the drainage area of the north fork of the Clearwater river. Of this the members of the as sociation own 431,000 acres, against whiçh is assessed the cost of the fire protection. The balance of the land is largely in the hands of small owners, who receive the benefit of protection but do not belong to the association and pay no assessments. The state of Idaho is the largest single owner, hav ing 198,380 acres. Lightning was the cause of 48 of the 62 fires, slash burnings 10, one from camp fire and the cause of three is un known. Those present at the meeting were T. J. Humbird, president; A. F. Parker, state land appraiser, vice president; Charles A. Fisher, secretary-treasurer; Fire Warden Haines, supervisor of the St. Joe national forest, and C. H. Faucher. Sabbath School and Preaching. After a ten weeks' vacation, we are to have the regular services again next Sunday, Dec. 22. Sunday school at 10 a. m., and preaching by the pastor at 11 a. m. Surely the thoughtful will want to be present and begin again the public service of the Master. We are planning on a real advance along all right lines this year, and we will need every one in his place doing his very best. All are urged to assist by their presence and influence, to build a homelike church here in Orofino. Cordially your pastor, F. L. MOORE. Notice of Stockholders' Annual Meeting.
