In the past they have been handled with the prodigality of a young spendthrift coming suddenly into pos- esslon of great wealth. Now, when so much has been wasted a careful hus- banding of resources would be ex- pected. But instead of that, we are actually calling iv the aid of fire toI aid in the work of destruction. The department of agriculture has', prepared data on forest fires covering the five years ending with 1920,! which show this fact. It is of such importance that the National Board of Fire Underwriters is publishing it under the title "Safeguarding Amer- tea Against Fire." In the five years covered by the in- vestigation, forest fires burned over a territory greater than the eomhine~i areas of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut. Vermont. New Hamp- shire, New Jersey, Deleware, Mary- land and West Virginia. The numberI of fires averaged 80,000 a year, of) All Solid Leather.
