Committee. thb The Great Southern Lumber M Company through their Depart- J, ment of Forestry, has set to go- be ing a number of experiments in St seed harvest, planting seed on se various types of soil, on plowed in and unplowed, and fenced and M unfenoed areas. They have also M just completed transplanting 34,- p( loblolly seedlings on cut-over w lands, putting them in rows ten tt feet apart and spaced six feet in the row. This traneplanting is ve done at the cost of 5 mills to each plant. This company is also work ing out a system of fire preven tion on some of their out-over lands, which they believe is prac- b tical and will be the proper meth. J od to put into practice generally thruout the country. This system 4 is the use of all the natural bar riers to woods grass fires such as streams, swamps, roads, fields, etc, By connecting up these na. tural fire lanes by burning strips -acrose from one to the other all the land is thus out into small parcels. of plots. These several I plots are mapped and numbered. It is now in systematio shape for the fire warden or patrolman. He d has his map and reports his beat I each day thru the fire season. The Great Southern invites any c one ii the parish or state to visit ( them and inspect these several I siperiments. . 'At the other end of the line Col. W. B. Greely, United States for- * ester, is on the job. He is aseking the United 8tatee for an -appropri tionl of $1,000,000 to be used with the several states in the work of fire prevention on the basis of 4 fifty*-fty. Colonel Greeley has pointed some very astonishing faeCs. "New York" he said, "im. ports nine-tenths of the lumber which she requires.
