MOTORED FROM OMAHA. D. H. Crawford, of Omaha, Neb., motored to the Clearwater country last week and is now visiting his brother, J. R. Crawford, at the lat ters homestead east of Cow Creek.

One feature of last week's frlvo lities was the slumber party staged at the Orofino beach Saturday night, for which Mrs. E. A. Bandall was chiefly responsible. A community bed of three and three quarters ca pacity, sheltering seventeen head is hardly conducive to blissful slum ber, but each member of the party, who aroused at various Intervals before sun up, swears by audible (evidence that his or her neighbor was far from a state of InBomlnla. Two of the less fortunate who have not learned the art of breathing comfortably in a space one half | their diameter, and seemed unable to make connections with the top quilts removed themselves from the midst and spent the night around a small bench fire on the sand. A few of the more courageous indulg ed in an early morning plunge but the majority waited for the grate ful warmth of the Hun and after wards cursed themselves for their folly and the low cut of bathing HUltB. Far from being least deserving of honorable mention were the eats.

Unless more care is taken by camping parties in when changing camp. It is not un- 1 regard to leaving no fire behind likely that an order will be issued \ prohibiting people from camping in j the timbered region, whether in the national forest or in territory con trolled by timber syndicates. The destruction of our forests by fire must not continue much lngei The loss is treamendous one year after another and eventually will result in complete ruination of what is left of the forests. The woodsman's axe laid low the j timber in the east and middle west j states, and in the far west it looks ' as if the fire fiend has started out | to make a clean sweep of what is left. Fighting forest fires is the order of the day, but it is a one-sided battle. Human hands can do but little when it comes to stopping or even checking, a forest fire. But hnman hands can do much to pre vent forest fires—the hands of lazy campers who move about from place to place making fires but failing to put them out when they decide to move. Occasionally a person is tak en into court and given a light fine for leaving a camp fire burning, but that doeB not remedy matters and the next move will be one to deny everybody the privilege of using th timber regions as camp grounds. This it would seem, is the only way to protect tne forests against the thoughtless individual who finds it too miich trouble to kill a camp fire after it has served its purpose. Mr. and Mrs. E. H.

Crawfrd Is to throw McTarnahan twice in an hour in the coming match and the game promises to be an exciting one as both contestants are quick and resourceful. The match promises to be as ex citing as the last contest when TEVLIN'S ON WRECKED ALASKA Mr. and Mrs. Owen Tevlin, em ployed until a short time ago at the North Idaho sanatorium here, were passengers on the wrecked steamer Alaska, that was lost on the north on California coast last Saturday.
