This organization has hundreds of men. in its but their means of com- munication are not extensive enough cover the vast areas, the result being that much of it is unprotected. The advocated by R. H.

DRY DOCKS FOR PORT ARTHUR the This would eliminate the cutting off communication by fires destroying the poles and trees falling across the wires. Probably the inpst mportant thing is the saving of "life. Every year, since 1870, an average cf fifty persons have been burned ;to death in the United States in forest fires, making a total of nearly one housand lives sacrificed to the flames vhich might have been prevented. Armstrong maintains that the chief reason for the speed of the fire is after a blaze has been discovered a long .time elapses before the alarm can.te sounded and aid summoned the flames. Many' of the concerns have considered using tel- jephone lines for connecting camps I of forest rangers, but this was. given which "played "Charley's Aunt" last evening was a very good one above the average that visits town.

In the state of Ida- ho, which has more than feet oi standing timber in its five northern counties, -the fire protection accociations working with the state have reduced the losses greatly, but it.cost last year more than or.about two and three-quarters cents an acre to patrol the acres.

The logging and lumbering in- dustry is the. largest and most" impor- tant in the state, and as the area of logged-off land is increasing con- stantly, the fire hazard is becoming greater every year. This is also the .condition in other western states.
