CARELESS TOURISTS START DESTRUCTIVE FOREST FIRES Because of the war, Germany lost about 21,547,520 acres of land ex clusive of plebiscites. This was un doubtedly a serious national misfor tune to Germany. The United States during the period of 1916-1920, in clusive. burned up 56,488,307 acres of our forested area—over 2 1-2 times as much as Germany's entire loss— an tirea greater than New York and Pennsylvania combined, or of Alinue sota. Kansas, Idaho, or Utah. While it is impossible to trace the origin of ail forest fires, the records of the Forest Service of the United States Department of Agriculture show that a large number originate through the carelessness of happy-go j lucky tourists. The Forest Service is anxious to encourage the use of the National Forests as recreation grounds. It cooperates with plans for building tine roads through the forests and establishes numerous free camping grounds, where shelter, wa ter, and firewood may be obtained. Many of these camps are located on main automobile highways and are easily reached. Some states provide tourist guide maps to the forest and camp sites. About 5.000,000 people. [it is estimated, use the forests each I year during the vacation season. At I Eagle Camp Ground on the Colum j bia River Highway in the Orego Na tional Forest, 132,000 tourists reg istered last year. Some of the campers, however, do not seem to appreciate the pleasures and privileges afforded to the touring public. They disfigure the scenery with rubbish and filth, they disre gard game laws and pollute streams, but their worst and most frequently recurring offense, according to forest officers, is the starting of destructive forest fire by carelessness either with camp fires or with smoking. A lighted cigarette thrown into dry leaves or needles may start a fire that will spread for miles. : A camp fire not fully extinguished may be the means of destroying valuable timber which has taken hundreds of years to reach maturity. The re ports of forest rangers are filled with dramatic accounts of the work Invol ved in 'controlling such fires, and also In detecting and bringing the culprits before a judge after following the very slight clews obtainable in a de serted camp site. Sometimes an old bottle or a pocket handkerchief will reveal the original possessor who did not put out his fire. Sometimes a particular make of automobile tire can be traced for miles and the care less camper brought to justice. No fines, however, on the part of the local magistrate, will restore the burned area. While forest rangers are vigilant and alert to catch care lessness and prevent incipient fires, ] the real need, the foresters say, is for j the development of more conscience j on the part of the public which uses the National Forests. It Is greatly desired by the Forest Service that all the 147 National Forests, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and from Gulf to Border, be used and enjoyed to the fullest extent by as many peo ple as possible. This involves uni versal adoption of the slogan, "Be sure your fire is out!" A DREAM OF THE BONES. Sehen cum eleben! Lady luck am shit my pard, Shake dem bones black boy—shake dem bones! Tth what I wins l's gwine a buy sum car. Shake dent bones black boy—shake dem hones. A diamonds ring 'n sum yeller shoes. Shake dbm bones black boy—shake dem bones.

The man who doubts whether adver tisements are read is living in ths past, says the Shoe and Leather Re porter. Editors are beginning to fear they will be crowded out, so attractive have the advertising pages become. The editor experiences difficulty in holdiug the attention of his readers today against the picturesque an nouncements of those who can have all the white space they are able to pay for.
