"With tho season only half gone,
more fires huvo been reported nnd
fought on the Deschutes National
Forest than In the entire season of
last year, Supervisor W. O. Hnstlngs
estimated today. So far the total has
been Gl, while last season's total was
69. Of this year's total, 40 hnvo
broken out In the last week, chiefly
caused by lightning. The 21 pro
ceeding that tlmo were scattered over
several weeks, and wore tho result of
carelessness on the part of campers.
In addition to new fires, several
which had been deemed under con
trol havo burst out again In the last
two days, and are now considered to
be the most dangerous of any. Do

Mr. Hustings has 60 extra men work
ing as fire fighters, and more could
be used to advantage In the Pino
Mountain and Crescent ranger dis
tricts, he says.
Smoke Is Hindrance.
So many conflagrations so close
in have brought increasing dltficul
Ies, for the air is becoming so smoky
that It is only with the utmost dif
ficulty that lookouts stationed on
the highest peaks In the forest limits
can discern signs of new fires. In
several Instances lately, Mr. Hastings
says, only one fire has been reported
in a section where two or more might
be burning at the same time.
One factor, however, which is aid
ing materially in the fight against
flames is the return of cold nights,
giving the work of the fire guards
a chance to take effect, and allow
ing a better opportunity for rest to
tho fire fighters who have boon work
ing day and night. With the excep
tion of four fires, all of which have
been reported to date, are now under
control. Two of the four, one on
Bald Mountain, on the Klamath Res

The child said that constant pressure

Tho polut we were to attack hnd been
selected long before by our scouts. It
was not, an you might suppose, tho
weakest point lu tho German line. It
was, on the contrary, the strongest It
was considered that the moral effect of
cleaning up a weak point would be
comparatively small, whereas to break
In at tho strongest point would Im
something really worth while. And If
wo wero to take a chance It really
wouldn't pay to hesitate about degrees.
Tho section we were to raid had a
frontage of l.V) yards and n depth of
200 yards. It had been explained to us
that wo wero to bo supported by a
"box barrage," or curtain lire, from
our artillery to last exactly twenty six
minutes that Is, for twenty six min
utes from tho time when wo started
"over tho top" our artillery, several
miles buck, would drop n "curtain" of

thoro wero we Informed of tho "zoro
hour" the tlmo when the attack was
to bo mndii. Tho hour of l'J:10 had
beou selected. The waiting from 11
o'clock until thnt time was simply nn
agony. Homo of our men sat stupid
and Inert. Others kept talking cou
stautly about the most Inconsequential
matters. Oue man undertook to toll n
funny story. No ouo listened to It, and
the laugh at the end was emaciated
and ghastly. The Inaction was driving
us all Into a state of funk. 1 could ac
tually feel my nerve oozing out at my
finger tips, and If wo bad had to wult
fifteen mluutes longer 1 wouldn't have
been ablo to climb out of tbo trench.
About half an hour before we were
to go over every man hud his cyo up
