PIAWE FIlES : The Law Agatist Setting Prairie s Pares bshudM be Strictly BE- , breA Mere.r (By S. B. Palmr.) The season for prairie fIres is at hand. The law is very strict on firing the prairie, and no doubt any one guilty of such conduct can look for no leniency from the law, as there has been too much damage done in the vicinity of Culbertson to overlook anyone hereafter, be it by accident or otherwise. Following are a few $$don'ts" which will save many mistakes and aveid many fires. Don't throw ashes out doors to blow around even though you know them to have no coals as they may go off like the gun that is not loaded. Don't build fires in your prairie homes on very windy days when the surroundings are dry as two of our most disasterous fires were caused in Dawson and Valley counties the . two years by chimneys setting the country afire a f leaving the owners minus good h. ises and contents. Another lire we.. set by sparks from a stove pipe being carried about six rods and firing...
