The newspaper columns bear reports
of the death of several children indif
ferent localities, the result of burning
leave. The burning of leaves is a
practice which is prohibited by bor
ough ordinance. Besides throwing
out offensive odors there is danger Iu
more ways thau one. If they are
burned iu the streets horses are liable
to lie frightened by the lire. Then
there is danger from the Hying sparks,
not alone to the children engaged iu
the sport, but to buildings if the wind
be blowing. The best way to remove
the leaves is to have them gathered in
piles and hauled away.
