Pullman, Wash STATE FEDERATION OE WOMEN'S GLOBS Mrs. Shedd Advocates Precautions .'.gainst Fire and a I'all Clean-Up Week in view of the proclamation of Governor Lister that October 30th.be observed as Fire Prevention Day, and because of the close relationship be tween fire prevention and cleanli ness and order, we hereby suggest that the week prior to October 30 be observed as "Fall Clean-Up Week"; that city and county papers, county- commissioners, organizations of all kinds, schools and churches through out the state send out notices and announcements to that effect, and follow them up with efforts to insure results. Experts who are devoting their lives to the study of lire causes and prevention tell us they have estab lished three facts which are of vital concern to every housewife, and should in consequence receive most careful consideration: First, that BO per cent of all fires are due to preventable causes. Second, unnecessary conditions that are conducive to fire exist in 95 out of every 100. Third, that it is a rare' exception to find a dwelling equipped with even the simplest fire protection. Following are a few suggestions apropos of Fire Prevention Day: Fire prevention, like charity, be gins at home. Keep two six-quart pails, painted red, or other extinguishers, in a con venient place, and always in the same place. Safety versus sentiment. Old let ters, papers of all kinds, rubbish and dirt in your yards, corners, closets, garrets, and cellars, through spontan eous combustion, and otherwise, help to start fires. To prohibit stor age altogether is an extreme meas ure, but is what the fire Inspector would like to do. Benzine, naphtha, and gasollc I travel everywhere; and sink Instead of rise. Use them, if you must, out of doors always. Smoking' is responsible for many fires, but as wo can not eliminate the cinoker, encourage care and total ab stinence from the pernlciou. habit of smoking ln bed. Ashes and cinders should be kept in metal cans. Light Christmas trees with elec tricity. Put range on legs or cement floor. Extreme caution with matches should be observed. A Few Don't* Don't kindle fires with kerosene. Don't burn leaves on windy days. Don't allow lace curtains near gas Jets. Don't block hallways nor fire es capes. Don't forget to have chimneys cleaned each year. Excellent programs for Kir, Pre vention Day, offering plenty of color and music, may be secured from the National Fire Prevention associa tion, Boston. The first municipal fire preven tion club in the United States was or ganized in Cincinnati, December 10, 1912, based on the belief that fire protection and prevention are all fundamentally one question, and that citizens could gain much by ex changing ideas and discussing the general subject from various view points. Mr. Willard Done. Insurance com missioner of Utah, says, "I am not much of a juggler of words, but it seems to me that a slogan of se quence can be adopted in our fight against the fire waste. This may consist of five words equal in length and similar in sound. The first foul could represent the premises, the last one the result or conclusion. -The slogan would be: Indlgna tion, Agitation, Education, Legisla tion, Conservation. "Each of the first four words rep resents a stage in our progress and the last the goal for which We are striving. We have just reached the first stage. There has been a growing feeling of indignation on the part of the American people, and its growth is a splendid sign and gives great promise. The only dif ficult} is that popular indignation Is sometimes evanescent, passing away like the eruption of a geyser and producing just about as much effect. "The indignation on this subject, however, bids fair to be well-directed and efficient. It Is directed by men and organisations which are strong and determined In the fight. They are transforming this popular indig nation into agitation for Improve ment, for correction of evils, for ac complishment Of definite and posi tive results. This will ultimately load to the third stage, popular edu cation along lines of fire prevention. An outgrowth of the education and agitation, will be legislation; the enactment of laws requiring better building construction, greater care of Inflammable material, greater control over conflagration hazards. The enactment of such laws and their subsequent enforcement, which must be a consequence of this educational work, ought to bring as its ultimate result the object we are striving for. The slogan will not have served Its purpose until all that we hope to accomplish In conservation has been accomplished." JEANETTE BELLE SHEDD. SPLENDID RECORD OF COLLEGE HERD Won Many Prizes at Walla Walla, and Hie Washington and Oregon State Fairs Wm. Hislop, head of the depart ment of animal husbandry, has made his report of the winnings of the col lege herd of beef cattle, which was exhibited at the Walla Walla county fair and the Washington and Oregon state fairs. In commenting on the results he says: The record of winnings has a double effect. It demonstrates to the outside public that the cattle owned by the State College of Washington are worthy of a very high place in open competition with other herds. It shows the student body of this in stitution that the college possesses cattle which are worthy of their clos est attention and scrutiny if they would learn and profit thereby." The record is a fine one. At Walla Walla the college herd won eight firsts, two seconds and one third, and » scored the senior champion and junior and grand champion for the Angus breed, and the junior and grand champion for Galloways. At the Washington state fair the herd was awarded two firsts and four seconds as well as the junior and grand champion for Galloways, and the junior and grand champion for Herefords. At the Oregon state fair the herd carried off eight firsts, seven .sec onds, one third and one fourth and was given the junior champion for Hereford yearling heifers; the junior and grand champion for Angus heifer calves and the junior and grand champion for Galloway heifers. This was the first time the college has exhibited at the Oregon state fair and the results are highly creditable to the stock and to the herdsman who fitted them, as the competition was keen.

Palee Sevtetury vi Whit man County Medical Society —Meeting at Rosalia Thirty-two Whitman county phy sicians attended the meeting of the County Medical society held last Monday at Rosalia Pullman physi cians were honored with the two most important ofices in the gift of the society, Dr. L. 0.

REMONSTRATE AGAINST IMPROVEMENT Remonstrances from G. W. Reed and Julia A. and Miles C. Moore Tuesday evening supplemented the remonstrances previously received from the 0.-W. It. & N. company against the proposed Improvement of that part of Kamiaken street be tween the 0.-W. R. & N. and N. P. tracks, making a total of over two thirds of the property owners who have voiced their disapproval of the improvement. The time set for hear ing remonstrances passed several weeks ago. and it is questionable whether the belated objections will be considered by jithe council, al though the city fathers, in deference to the remonstrators, continued the time for calling for bids for the im provement until the next meeting of. the council. The 0.-W. R. &N. com pany will lie asked to have a repre sentative present at that time who is in a position to say definitely just what his company will do, and it is probable that a compromise can be reached. Two representatives of the company were present Tuesday even ing, but neither was vested with au thority to make 'definite promises.

Six of the men have suffered attacks of typhoid, but two of the six did not develop the disease until two weeks after the machine had pulled in for the season. As far as Mr. Stirewalt knows, the crew did not drink any water which is not being used by the families where they were work ing and in none of these families has the disease manifested itself.
