Hurry TO DAY I KM MI ottv.nurs STUMO smn FAMON NMKAIT, vot i NAME — liy ARDIS K KKNVILLB, Aug. 28.—Kernville has had her "mute Inglorious Milton." In fact, according to tho material contained In a publication of the old Kernvlllo Literary Society now belonging to Mrs. J. M. Converso of Kernvlllo, tho mountain town onco experienced a general renaissance. This little volume, "first published In KornvlHe, Cal., March I, 1888," contains several bits of verso and one short story by tho literary lights of tho mountain town of that day. Tho opening verso Is on "Tho Origin of tho Kernvlllo Breeze," a paper edited by teacher and school children. As a sequel to this verso an epical poem entitled "Ten Years After" tolls of tho return of a wanderer after nn absence of 10 yours and his surprise at finding, "A town of large dimensions With all tho modern furbelows; A town of large prctentlons. Electric lights and railroads too, And other grand Improvements, Hard though It be for any one To anticipate such movements." At first tho traveler decides that ho Is witnessing u mirage; but he adds; "But nol I hear tho whistle scream From factory and from mill. You cannot hoar a mirage. And KERNVILLE HAD EARLY POETS *** •*•** *** *** Muses Flourished in Mountain City REVEAL GENERAL RENAISSANCE WALKER Whut's that oh yonder hill? Tis a. locomotive surely That I seo winding 'round Tho hillside and tho valley. Lo, on tho vory ground Whero tho ranchers and the stockmen Used to graze tholr herds of cattlo, I can hear tho buzzing hum of lite, And the merry stamp mills rattle. It Is tho concensus of tho present Inhabitants of Karnvlllo that, although tho prophecy of tho poet was not entirely fulfilled, It cannot bo laid to any lack of enthusiasm or Imagination on his part. Other verses Include "Tho Night Hawk's Serenade" which pictures tho town rascals enjoying Now Years Eve; "I Can't Make It Out, Can You?" a travesty on local char- actors of tho day; an unnamed bit of Invective verse fearlessly signed by John Farnell and three stanzas commemorating the tragedy of tho breaking of the town ditch. Tho short story, "The Story of a Lunch Basket," has to do with the adventures of a hat box which was freighted by team to Kernville, emptied of Its contents and used by the village belle as the container for a picnic lunch. Of course the dandy who purchased the last hat In the box also won the lunch at auction and finally married tho girl who prepared It. KERN MINERALS TOPIC™ T. V.
