I KILLED AT
He is dead, the beautiful ycuth, '
The heart of honor, the tongue of truth.
He, the life and light of us all,
. wh0m all eyes followed with one consent,
The cheer of whose laugh and whose pleasant word,
' ; Hushed all murmurs of discontent 1
, Sudden and swift a whistling ball
Came out of of a wood and the voice was still;
Something I heard in the darkness fall,
And for a moment ity blood grew chill;
.1 spoke in a whisper as one who speaks
. , In a room where someone is lying dead;
But he made no answer to what 1 said.
And I saw in a vision how far and fleet
;" ' That fatal bullet went speeding forth.
Till it reached a town in the distant North,
Till it reached a house in a sunny street,
Till it reached a heart that ceased to beat
, . . Without a murmur, without a cry;
And a bell was toDed in that far off town
J ' For one who had passed from cross to crown,
And the neighbors wondered that she should die.

etc., thus fnrnishing substantial
return cargoes for tho vessels
carrying northwest products to
the various markets of the world
This general increase in nearly

YOUNG MEN TAUGHT
tampiird building and control
of fire has been mrde an import
ant part of the training at the Y
M. C. A. summer camp at Spirit
Lane on the Columdia National
Forest. Their plaiii might well be
followed by other individual and
ir roups, according to Forest Serv
ice men whh have seen the sys
tem work at this camp. '
.The i, M. C. A. camp director
ia deplized as a U. S. Forest Ser
vice fire guard arid given authori
ty to issue the regular camp fire
permit. When a group of boyi
slarts out for a hike or a woods
trip, he issues one permit to the
trip leader. As far as possible, lo
caoion and time of all proponeo
camping places and camp firti
are set down on the permit ano
the forest fire lookouts informed
The trip leader then issues pet i
mils to the squad leaders all oi
whom are older boy a, for the build
ing ol sinfle camp fires. Before
the permit ia issued the trip lead
er must be satisfied that the fire
id to be located in a safe place.
Before the party leaves the spot

comp letelv, the trip leader in
spects the work, ana they oulh
initial the permit. All permits
are filed with the camp director
upon return to the miu camp. Ab
solutely no fires are built by the
boys without a permit
TheY. M. C. A. Spirit Lake
camp has been in continuous op
eration inr 19 years Every yerr
n average of not lesg than 100
incivii.ual fires are built by the
uys on these hiking trips, accord
ing to J. C. Mehan, Y. M. C.
Camy Director. Commenting on
Una phaie of the work, Mr. Me
han said: "t has not only been
our aim to teaah the correct meth
od tit camp fire building and con
trol, but tii point out to the boys
the reasons why these safeguards
are necessary, and the disastrous
resiilta that follow carelessnesa
in this direction. In addition to
this practical field training, the
subject of forest fires is dealt
with in the various camping and
