Perry Bryant was burning fire guards
the fire got away from him and did
considerable damage before it was
put out , burning a lot of range that

carlessness or recklessness. An ounce
of preventation is worth a pound of

their ground if necessaryvith weap *
ons. The party progressed The
Seniors and Juniors came , and in
