Carelessness causes most of the
disastrous forest fires which yearly
destroy miles of valuable timber
lands, and frequently whole villages
and towns. A writer in the Milwau
kee Sentinel recounts some interest
ing facts about them. One expen
sive conflagration was started by a
match which a man threw into dry
grass after lighting his pipe.
Before that fire had burned itself
out It had traversed a strip of terri
tory sixty miles long and five or six
miles wide. We lost hundreds of
thousands of ties by the fire, to say
nothing of the timber that was burn
ed over all because a man was not
careful where he threw a lighted
match. When such fires once get
started they burn themselves out;
you can't stop them.
They play some queer freaks. I
have seen great pine-tress standing
out alone in a little clearing one hun
dred yards or more from anything,
and suddenly the fire would jump
out and a few minutes later nothing
would be left of the trees but the
trunk and scarred and burned limbs.
I remember one case of the kind
where a handsome big pine stood out
alone. Suddenly the flames seemed
to gather themselves into a big ball
and burst over the top of the tree
like a shell, enveloping it in fire. It
burned as though it had been kiln
dried. In the old days the Indians were
very careful of fire. When they
broke camp in the morning, after
going a shot distance, one of the
band would go back to see that there
was no spark unextinguished. If
there was he would be sure to put it
out. If he did not return to the
waiting band soon, two or three oth
ers would go back, and if there was
any fire they would help him extin
In that way forest fires were pre
vented. Nowadays, with white cam
pers and picnickers going into the
woods and leaving without care
whether they leave sparks which
may cause a blaze or not, it is hard
to preserve the forests. I presume
it was something of that kind which
started the fires up in British Colum
bia. The country is densely timber
ed, and any fire there means the loss
of hundreds of thousands of dollars
in standing timber, to say nothing
of lives placed in danger.
