California Raisin Day, April 30. The raisin men of California have decided on April 30th as "Raisin Day" and are organizing to make it a success. The cooperation nnd assistance of tailroada, steamship lines, hotels and mercantile establishments throughout California will be asked. A meeting was held in Fresno on March 10th attended by representatives from over the valley of the raisin interests and by representatives of the Southern Pacific Company. At this meeting the executive committee of the Chamber of Commerce decided to raise 135,000 or mor« to tell in simple language just how much good it will do the average citizen to eat raisins and how to prepare them. This on Raisin Day, with the hope that hereafter they will help to dispose of the 25,000 tons of luscious fruit Fresno has on hand. The campaign is not confined to California but it is lo be pressed vigorously throughout the East. The Southern Pacific Comnany has agreed that all of its traffic forces shall work to make Raisin Day a success. In all of its stations, in all its suburban trains, in all its ferry boats, on nil its Atlantic steamers, it will put up posters advertising Raisin Day. On all Southern Pacific diners nnd in all eating stations laisins are to be served gratis on Raisin Day with compliments of the California Raisin Growers. The other Harriman linos will cooperate and without doubt take similar action, The lecture bureau of the Harriman linen in the East, under charge of Mr. J. W. Erwin, will have a series of lectures delivered on the use of California Raisins and lectures deliverdod on the use of California Raisins and the observance of Raisin Day, reaching probably 25,000 people. The San Francisco hotels have already signified their intention of aiding, and will no doubt take concerted action. of the United States generally sit up and take notice of California raisins. Subsequently an advertising campaign will be undertaken to keep raisins to the front throughout the country. The Jwork is to bo done by the Fresno Chamber of Commerce, with the cooperation of the passenger da- partment of the Southern Pacific, under the direction of the General Passenger agent. They are Working for the Government, There is no line of employment more retnumeiative than that furnished by the U. S. Government. When a young man is working for the government, ho is working for himself, because he is one of the stockholders in this groat corporation. His voice counts one at the ballot box and it is bis privilege to help secret, men t< conduct the business of this groat corporation in which every memboi has equal capital stock so far as vot ing is concerned; so, when employed in any branch of the government, he feels that he is partly his own boss. Numbers of young people hnvo, after a few months special coaching in San Bernardino Business College and Civil Service Institute, passed the examination for government stenographers, bookkeepers, railway mail dorks, etc., and none lira drawing loss than 8800 a year. Every young puison has tl o right to enter this service, and, if he line finished sixth grade work in the public school, lie c'nn take special coaching in the above named school. Young tnc'ii interested in tho railway nuiil service should take up tho work at once either in person or by correspondence, UH this examination is to be hold in San -Bernardino on the 15th of May. Full particulars concerning all these examinations muy be had from the Sun Bernardino Business College nud Civil Service Institute. A million raisin primers and with recipes will be distributed over the United States, telling people bow to serve raisins and instructing them in their uses. Every business man in California will receive a request to help observe Raisin Day by making his friends and patrons more familiar with one of California's choicest products.
