" A Safe Canip Fire
DId you ever ask a scout how
he would put out his fire before
leaving camp? It you have, the
average scout will answer: "Put
Some dirt on It," or "stamp Jt
out!f wrong both times.
The only way to put out a camp
fire is to put water on it and plen
ty at -that.- So that not a single
spark is left. That's the way to
leave' a safe camp fire. A safe
fire is dead fire.
"Earth, half leaves and needles.
rotten ,4wood and trash, won't put
out a fire; in fact when this de
bris .dries out as it will over coals,
it makes a -very fine fire starter.
"Stamping- .out a fire tdoesn'H
hurt the fire very much, and may
hurt the soles of your shoes a lot.
Water", and plenty ot it, is what
wfll kill a smoldering camp fire-
dead. . Pour on lots of water, stir
the 'embers with' a stick, pour on
more water, and then run your
fingers . through the dead coals,
and. then, maybe, you'll decide to
pour on some more water.
