Crooks, master of the American barque Christlane which was sunk by a German submarine Aug. 7, near the Azores was entertained as a guest on board the U-boat, and over a glass of wine was told by the German commander that he "hated to sink American ships." Captnln Crooks related the incident on arrival here today on board an Italian liner. The American captain said he was bound home from London when his ship was sunk. Not being armed he surrendered to the U-boat. "We spent two hours on the submarine while the Germans removed from the Christlane all our supplies and sunk her with bombs," he said. "The captain then escorted us to our lifeboats, gave us the direction of the nearest land and bid us a courteous good-bye. The submarine was about four hundred feet long, and carried two six-Inch guns. The name signed to the receipt is Captain J. Erlinger, German navy.

TERRIBLE FOREST FIRES FROM TRIFLING CAU8ES A man dropped a lighted match on the shore ot Kalamalka Lake, British Columbia, on July 8th, last. Within an hour a hot fire was racing through the underbrush. For three weeks after that there raged a series of forest fires, defying the organized efforts of hundreds of men. At one time, 26 fire fighters were ringed about with flames while their relatives, shut off from them and help-lesB to aid, awaited news in terrorized suspense. Only after severe .suffering from exhaustion, thirst and hunger did the band of workers force their way through to safety. That experience is a big price to pay for one person's foolish act In handling matches In a forest. The court fined the careless man $50 hut that does not help the province to bear the enormous Iobs. One lighted match dropped on one inch of inflammable ground expanded Into fifteen miles of ruin. In the Spruce Valley fire of British Columbia of the same month, eleven men lost their lives, most of them tortured to death as they struggled over the mountain tops. The fuse to that disaster was supplied by a small piece of lighted tobacco carelessly thrown on the grassy floor of a tent.
