It is criminal. Not only is there a loss of forest cover which will take fifty to seventy-five years to repro- duce, but there is a loss of gaxne fly. Anyone who heard the cries of those little helpless creatures as the flames closed around them, will nev- er forget their calls for hep.

'Say Jack,' he exclaims, 'ha(hi't we 'better telephone the wo- menfolks and let them know we've bought the car and arrange to meet them somewheres?' 'Good idea,' No. 1 replies 'May we use your telephone, Mr. Salesman?' The request is nat- urally granted and as No. 2 takes his seat at the desk, No. 1 steers the salesman to the rear of the store. No. 2 watches his chance and as he tele- phones, stuffs a number of the com- pany's bills of sale into his pocket. i Then he joins the others and soon the men drive away with their car: "But't-do not*go to the hotel. They already have chosen a garage, somewhere for their headquarters, a private one for which they have the only keys and on which they have paid a month's rent. The new car i.s 'stored there and perhaps that night, the enterprising crooks go out and steal a car, as new as possible and of the same make and model as the one i they purchased. Engine number plates and other parts are taken from their car and placed on the stolen one. "Some thieves make a specialty of buying wrecked or burned ears as junk. They receive a bill of sale, salvage parts which they place on sto- len cars and so disguise the finished automobile as a legitimate car for which they have a bill of sale.

Suppose the culprit who carelessly started the fire is caught; suppose he has sufficient funds to pay the cost of suppressing the fire and the stump age value of the timber. Has he made sufficient amend for the loss? If we could definitely say that a deer or a grouse, or a squirrel, or a bear, or a'martin or any animal or bird that lived in the forest was worth so much, we cduld not reasonably esti- mate the number of each that was de- sroyed. So there is no way by which such a loss can be repaid. Our courts do not recognize such values, but they are there. Who of you reads has ever gone into the forest and had the good fortune to see a deer but what felt that ,the trip was worth that sight alone? These animals have an eco- nomic value to the forest, the co,m-! munity, the State and the nation t in- determinable as it may be. And the person who needlessly kills a squirrel or a bird is detracting flcom the val- ue of the place where it was killed. How much does the National 'aPrk Service value the wild life in Yellow- atone Park?. One can quickly find out by killing one of the animals. I dare say the wild life in that park is an important factor in attracting tourists, many housands of whom visit the park each year. ........ The wild 11fe along Lake Chelan, that unique mountain lake are driv- en down close to the water's edge by the winter snows. Sunday excursions have been made up the lake during the past two winters, and 1200 to 15- 00 persona have made the trip, prin- cipally to see the game. The excur- sions have returned to the City of Chelan approximately $6000 which can be credited as a revenue directly lerived from the game, ani] still ,ave the game. Here is where the sportsman's re- sponsibility lies. He must not only ,saint with the propagation and pro- ction of the game but he must do all he can to preserve a home for it. One of the most important things he can do is to assist in protecting the woods from fire. This may be pos- sible thru care with fires about his person or camp while in the forests, by advice to others who are with him, by advice to strangers who are care- less with fire and smoking articles, or by assisting the protecting agen- cies by reporting fires started and helping to put them out. I presume there has bee11 a ques- tion in the minds of many as to how much if any game is destroyed by fire. My observations, and the auth- entic information I am able to col- lect, convince me that the forest fire is as destructive to our game and game birds as the irrigation ditches! are to our fish. I could quote you numerous in- stances of wild animals having been destroyed by fire. One ranger on the Chelan Forest states that during the Drake Creek fire of 1926, "The boys actually saw 'dear; bear, 'goats, grouse and smaller animals in great numbers outside thg fir lines." ' They paid no attention to the men. Many dead fool-hens and grouse were found and one bear; A cub bear took re- fuge in a rock cave. After the fire it was tracked out of the fire area: Many squirrels, chipmunks, flying squirrels and rabbits were seen above timber line in the open country." The writer was on a fire where a small Island of unburned ground was being graduallr consumed by flames. In' this area was a mother fool-hen with her brood. As the flames came nearer the birds began to cry. For some unknown xcason they would not authentic records of game and wihl vard where a shinmont af antnrnnhilou room under the hover, in the house tilated but not draughty. ..... - ..... - ................... .  xs srange commenr.ary na ne life being destroyed by fire ahd, [ is being unloaded.

But in the case of a building lot for instance--[ something than cannot ,be driven a- way or lost--he wi'l I go to elaborate trouble to investigate the title, even f the land costs but a few hundred dollars. If the secondhand automo- bile buyer would beware, thieves ould find their business cut in half. They steal to sell and they can sell, because, as in the case cited, the buy- er rerely makes a thorough investiga- tion as to the title of his purchase. "Of course the greatest vigilance will not detect every stolen car. But anyone can exercise a few simple precautions. Try to know something about the dealer. Find out how long he has had the ear. Don't be too eager to purchase one that has just been driven in. Ask for the bill of sale the dealer received when he bought the car. If you doubt any of the numbers have them examined by an expert. Some of my men are so efficient in this that they can detect a forgery simply by running their fingers over the figures. "Call your police deparLment an:t ask if they have a report on the car. If you care to go to further pains ask the same of one of the aurorae :bile-theft bureaus. There are five big ones that cover the entire cou - try. They have a record of every c r stolen from their clients. "There is no such thing as a the :t proof car. If they want your auto- mobile badly enough, the thieves may break open your garage and truck it away or adopt the same method if it is on the street. Thieves some- t}mes have service trucks and pose as legitimate repair men. If they take your car and are detected they plead a mistake, or say that they were or- dered to get the car but confused it with another one of the same ,make and model that may or may not have been standing close buy. If the steer- ing wheel is not locked, one crook may break open the door, get in and steer while a confederate in another car behind will push your car down the street, into an alley, and, perhaps into a garage where it is dismantled or disguised for sale. This method is called 'kissing them away' and it is worked almost every day. It pays to have a good locking system however. A lock that secures both the steering gear and the ignition is most effect- ive.
