C. A. Randall, Chief Deputy Fire
Commissioner, Warns People
in Penty of Time.
The following timely sugges
tions from Chief Deputy Randall
nf l be slate lire commission, if
heeded, will ae many disasters
which usually occur about
ChrislnuM time, in arranging
Christ mas trees at churches and
school houses, and also at the
homes of private families. Head
and closely observe the good ad
vice extended for your special
benelll :
Christinas will soon be cele
brated by the people of Ibis slate
ami Ihe Christinas tree and public
entertainments in crowded
churches and halls and home will
be used lo emblish Ihe occasion.
fn order that, nothing will oc
cur to mar the occasion and
cause a life-lime of regrets,,. I
earnestly urge those having these
matters in charge to observe the
following rules:
Do not decorate your Christmas
tree with paper, cotton, celluloid
or any other inflammable ma
terial. Use metallic tinsel and
other non-inflammable decora
lions only, ami set the tree se
curely so that il cannot lip over.
Do not use cotton to represent
snow; if you must have snow use
asbestos liber.
If I here is any oilier possible
way lo light Ihe tree do not use
candles. The tree ilself is very
inflammable and will burn when
the needles become dry. Where
electric, lights can be obtained
small bulbs of different colors
can be slrung around over the
ll'ee, bill Ibis work should only be
done by someone thoroughly un
derstanding electricity. Large
lamps with relleclors so arranged
as lo I brow Ihe light on the I ree
will give the tree a beautiful ap
pearance and will not endanger
the lives of I hose in t a I tendance.
Do not. permit Sanla Clans lo wear
an inflammable beard or wig.
Usually Ihe presents that are
placed upon Christmas trees are
done up in tissue paper that is
very inflammable, ami llaxen-
haired dolls and Teddy bears ami
such presents an1 inflammable
and a spark from one of the little
amlles is liable lo start a tire
and I here is alw ays someone
present, ready lo scream ami yell
"Fire," and then the trouble
lakes place; a rush is made for
Ihe door and there are enough
grown people in Ihe audience lo
trample Ihe life out of the lillle
children who are present ami
who are tilled with expectancy at
receiving the gifts that ar i the
tree, but instead of receiving
a presenl I hey are liable to re
reive either painful or fatal in
juries and an occasion of merri
iiieiil will he turned into mourn
ing. All aisles and evils should
be kepi absolutely clear, so I bat
if an accident should happen all
of Ihe occupants can retire from
the building ipiickly and miin
I hope Ihe bulletins I have is
sued has implanted in Ihe minds
nf those who will have thesi
enlcrlaininenls in charge a de
termination lo prevent injury and
loss nf life of nil I hose who al lend
Ihese Christmas entertainments

-The Pacific Coast Tour-
Grandest Railroad Journey in the World
There are more than one hundred different ways to go or to come, but the
all-year way to California, the way in one direction at least, is through' the Den
ver gateway, with Scenic Colorado and Salt Lake along the way.
If you desire a more southerly route in Winter, go via Denver and the Santa
Fe Grand Canyon Route, through New Mexico-the way of sunshine. If this
is not far enoughsouth, go through Kansas City and Texas, returning through
Salt Lake and Scenic Colorado. But to realize the maximum possibilities as to
scenery, cities, agricultural landscape and "travel education" of this compre
hensive tour, you should include the Shasta Route and the Pacific Northwest
the Portland. Puget Sound and Spokane regions.
