Bangor Dajty News The drives have been especiallyclean clean this year no loge being left to winterin in the streams and brooks This of course I bas been due to the high water which baacontinued continued through the summerIt It la roughly estimated that last wlnteracut cut in Maine was about 800000000 foet ofspruce spruce and perhaps 100000000 feet of plnomost most of the latter being In the southwesternpart part of the State where a second growthIn or pine bas DOW developed along the 8aoo In place of those first great pines which gave Maine the name of the Pine Tree State The lumbermen are already locating the camps In the woods and making activepreparations preparations for next years cut In theold old times lumbering was strictly a winter business but In theM tlmllll practically allthe the cutting is done In the fall and this partof of the work is ended by January 1 fhe I indications point to a large cut thoughthe the scarcity of labor Is a serious obstacleto to be overcome and there ore other factarathe the weather and the condition of the lumbermarket marketTwenty Twenty thousand forest fire notices have recently been posted In the Stateof of Maine some being 1tto every townand and plantation and those with large woodedsections sections being very liberally supplied Doubtless the warning conveyed by theaanotices notices has been a factor as well as the wetsummer summer in making the Maine record of forest fires more favorable than for many years There wero a few Ares in June in Somerset and Washington counties butthey they were not extensive and did very little damage June Is usually the wont monthof of the year for these groat tires which haveworked worked such havoc in the wild lands of this State There were no fires in July or thus for In August and the woods ajre now so wetand and the swamps so full of water that itdry Is very unlikely that Maine will lulrer 1011ch lrom forest flee this year even 11 a long dry spell should come on1l10re There will be no relaxation however in the vigilance of the fire wardens Thereare are 200 of these wardens and though they are paid by the State only for time actually spent in fighting fires or otherwise serving the Commissioner they are always on thewatch watch Moat of them are men employed in the woods by private concerns or engaged la running sporting campa and their own Interest keep them very watchful apinatree Arne These wardena posted the fire notices in the unincorporated places while thonotices notices were sent to the selectmen of the towna and the aaaoaaon of Ua
