State Forest Fire.

State Forest Fire.

A dispatch from Aberdeen, Wash., says a careless traveler who threw a lighted match into the underbrush started a forest fire 12 miles from Hoquaim, on the Hump Tullips-Hoquaim road, that quickly getting beyond control has already swept over to.ooo acres of slashings, on which were piled 15,000,000 feet of cut timber, and later threatened to destroy the logging camp of the Poison Logging company, Shaw & Nelson and the Stocksell Logging company. Fourteen thousand acres of green timber lie directly in the nath of the flames and there is little hope of saving anv of it. It is feared the property loss will exceed $250,000.
