WALDEN, COLORADO, SEPTEMBER 30, 1009. WISH SETTLERS TO CO-OPERATE WITH FOREST OFFICERS To the Users of the Forest. The fire season on the Medicine Bow National Forest has already opened, al though, so far, very few fires have been discovered. It is very desirable that the standing timber be protected by every means possible. Eech Ranger is requir ed to patrol on an average of about one hundred thousand acres, therefore, you can readily see that unless the settlers co-operate with the forest officers, very serious damage might result before the fire would be discovered and extinguish ed. ) Since the Medicine Bow Forest was t created there have been no serious fires within the boundaries. The forest of l f ice re and the settlers have discovered a good many fires and have either extin guished them themselves, or with the assistance of others. Several fires in Boulder County have required the em ployment of a number of men. and the constant vigilance of the forest officers for several days at a time However, all such fires have been extinguished with very little damage. You will very read ily recall the before the setting aside of the territory embraced in the Medicine Bow Forest to be handled as a National Forest, many fires raged unquenched for weekß at a time; destroying millions of feet of valuable timber; denuding the hill slopes and menacing life and prop • erty. Aside from the forest fires dis covered and extinguished, a great num ber of camp fires have been put out by the rangers and settlers. The Forest Service is spending large sums of money in the employment of men for the hand ling of this work, as well as in the con struction of roads, trails and telephone lines. Eighty miles of telephone lines have already been constructed on the Medicine Bow National Forest, and this year a line about thirty miles long is be ing constructed, this is all done for the purpose of preserving the timber so that it may be used by the settlers for build ing houses, barns, outbuildings, fences, j etc., and by the miners in developing ( their prospects and .mines. _Jfc Ja tpm - timber sold, and for grazing permits, , power plants, etc., but 25 per cent of all , money received from this source is re- , turned to the county to be used for schools and roads. These facts are mentioned to show that the Medicine Bow Forest wes cre ated, and is managed, solely and entire ly for the people residing in and near it, as well as the general good to those At a distance. Fire is the very worst ene my of the Forest for it not only destroys the timber, but, in many cases burns up the humus, laying bare the rocks and leaving ground open to attack from the heavy summer rains, which often wash tons upon tons of soil from the barren hillsides. This silt is carried down the mountain torrents, creating havoc all along the route, and is finally deposited in the lower Mississippi, where millions of dollars are spent by the Government in removing it from the rivei to facili tate navigation. The majority of the settlers near the Medicine Bow have given very material assistance in the past in the prevention and extinguishing of forest fires, and I appeal to you this season to give us the same hearty co-operation. There are many campers in the hills who do not understand the dangers of leaving un exiinguished camp fires You can as sist us very materially by informing such travellers that there is serious menace in leaving a camp fire for even a short half hour. I wish to thank you for your help in the past, and will earn estly request that in case a forest fire is discovered by you, you will immediately notify the nearest forest officer, as well as iend your assistance. The Supervis or’s office can always be reached by phone at Colli us £67, Fort Collins, Colo. Very truly yours, H. N. WHEELER I Forest Supervisor.

Fox Park is 15 Miles Beyond Albany. Will Handle Walden Freight this Winter. (From Laramie Boomerang.) President Miller of the Hahn’s Peak says the company has determined to make Fox Park the coming winter ter minal of the road, and that every ener gy is being bent in this direction. Fox Park is fifteen miles the other side of Albany and fiifty-flve miles from Lara mie. The road will, when it gets to this point, be in such close proximity to Walden that it will be able to handle all the Walden and North Park freight, and this will stop wagon freighting from Laramie. Mr. Miller says they are go ing to be w ell equipped for this work. The company hopes to reach this point and have its commissary department, boarding house, etc., transferred there within the next sixty days. Another thing, they are cleaning up their timber than It was last winter to handle the snow. Next spring, Mr. Miller says, they will put on an extra-ordinary large force and push to the cool fields on short order. The company has done between flf teen and twenty miles of construction work this season, and finds itself, in good condition now.
