Bid fair to leave the Centennial State without timber

Denver, Oct. 1. — Reports from the western portion of the state continue to tell of the ravages of the forest fires which bid fair to devastate the greater part of the forests of the state. A special from Glenwood Springs, the center of the burning district, says: The fires in the mountains near here have taken fresh life, owing to high winds. The sun was nearly obscured yesterday and the atmosphere is heavy with smoke.
