FIRE LOSSES ENORMOUS . Fine losses take a heavy toll from industries every year. It is a mistaken idea to think that insurance companies pay these losses. The people pay. The insurance companies act merely as a distributor or clear ing house, collect premiums on policies and disburse these pre miums for fire losses and oper ating expenses. * The lower fire losses can be brought, the lower premiums can be charged. The insurance company prevents the loss falling on an individual or industry as a crushing financial burden. Take the timber industry alone. Figures presented at the An nual Meeting of Western Fores try & Conservation Association at Portland, Oregon, show near ly two billion feet of standing timber killed in 1918, the worst fire season since 1910, of .which more than nine hundred million feet is beyond salvage. This en tailed a loss of $6,500,000 to Pacific states and is only one item of fire waste. E. T. Allen, of the association, in the interest of fire protective work, is urging increase in fed eral appropriation under Weeks law from $100,000 to $500,000, as the $100,000 is no longer suf ficient to cover the additional states which have qualified un der the act. The dry season is coming on and every person should make it point to help cut down our terri ble fire wastage.

Like wise there are such matters as taxes, the budget system and other details that directly affect the handling of public funds and which have a bearing on the cost of living, both directly and indirectly. The need of states manship was never more pro nounced Congress has great tasks to perform, for in addition to the problems at home their are foreign questions to consid er that are perhaps the greatest that ever confronted the nation. The public will, no doubt, watch congress this time as never before. DRIVE A NAIL. In every western city the de mand for housing and new homes is growing With the in flux of new residents.
