- "Klllti DAY."
A movement has been started by
tho Fortland Association of Credit
Men that ought, and no doubt will,
receive the hearty co-operation of
the clttxcna of liond. It Is for a
"Flro Day." This Is another term
for a clean-up day, as It Is known
here.' The object of such a day Is
to rid the town of rubbish that Is
dangerous because It Is excellent
material In which a Are may be
started from a carelessly thrown
match, cigar or cigarette stub. With
tho flro "hoodoo" which has been
pestering bead, there Is hardly any
one who would not Join enthusi
astically In having such a day desig
October IS has been suggested as
tho day, and the Portland people
arc asking the Governor to Issuu a
proclamation to this effect, thereby
making tho movement state-wide.
Tho writing of letters to this effect
to the Governor Is urged. Tho mat
ter should also be placed before tho
City Counoll; the aid of tho ladies,
who are a great power for good when
It comes to neatness and tidiness,
should be enlisted; tho boys and girls
ought to bo aroused; the teachers
should talk to their pupils, and the
ministers urgo the movement from
It should be a "pull together" of
everybody, thereby making such a
day an event of much civic Import
ance, not only placing the town be
fore the public as a model of cleanli
ness but also removing the danger
of fire, to a largo extent.
The annual Ore loss In the United
States Is $2.C1 for each Inhabitant.
In Oregon in 1911 It totaled the
enormous sum of $1,653,487.98, or
more than $2.45 for each man,
woman and child In the state. This
Includes only the losses paid by the
