Hhe realised she had boon tho Indirect oauso of tho man's accident and sho wanted him to know sho waft ready to accept a certain responsibility. In tho telephone, directory sho found Jarvlo' of- flco number beneath that of his homo number.

Crashing tho Empire tower is something now in gate crashing, but it lias been achieved by two youngsters Si?}" 1 Brookl yn- They had to climb 2240 steps to make tho 108 floors and when they knocked timidly at the last barrier it developed that, unwittingly, they had awakened to a Cinderella experience. Julia Chandler, the manager, was so struck by their ingenuity in getting by the close guard, sho accorded them all the privileges of the tower, Including special refreshments. The tads had pooled resources—a dime—to reach the skyscraper so, as fitting climax to their escapade, they were sent home in an official's car. They had come, they said, to look at the stars. There Is a germ of fantasy, too, for the realist In the Idea of the thousands who live and work high up in New York. A great city above a city. At least a quarter million on higher levels. Their kinship Is certain, although th'ey are unaware of It. Above tho Twentieth Floor! People who, como down from anywhere to do their chores—mountain or building—arc somehow equipped with more than those who work on the same lower level. Perhaps that's . why New York Is so bursting with ambition—this coming down from aloft and getting back there to sleep and dream of new achievements.

Tho single tax Is proposed by some as a measure of relief and it seems to mo that taxpayers should give It just as much consideration as they give to any other plan that Is offered. The first step in this direction Is to know .what it Is. Henry George's book. "Progress and Poverty," explains this clearly. Tho title, however, seems inappropriate. It should have been "Poverty Among Super- nbunclfinco" or "Tho JMulo an ft tHe Mastiff." The latter would be the better term, where land Is held out of uso by speculators. Tho landlords and land speculators are working hard to shift taxes from tno land to tho Improvements thereon. They have no Intention of stopping till the owners of tho improvements bear all tho tax and the land none. This is tho direct reverse °£ the qeorgist's Idea. They would shift taxes from Improvements to the land by means of tax levies and would not stop till the levy absorbed the entire rental valuo of. tho land. This would force all landowners to look elsewhere for their Income if they desired to continue eating. Mero ownership of land produces nothing In tho Georglst's opinion. If tho rent lord produces nothing he must bo eating at some ono else's Lable and tho fellow that furnishes his ents. that Is to say tho tenant would appear to havo equitable ground for a vigorous kick. I had an experience as a landlord once that convinced me that ownership of land not only produces nothing hut can bo used as a means for getting tho product of other people's labor without giving anything in return therefor. About 50 years ago 1 bought a piece of unimproved land paying one-fifth down and the balance In four equal annual payments. Right away after I received tho re- celpt for tho first payment, T rented U to my neighbor. He agreed to furnish everything and give mo one- fifth of the crop, cither in kind or in cash. My sharo of tho crops, over a term of yearn, paid for tho land, reimbursed me for tho interest on deferred payments and all taxes assessed against tho property. Believe It or not that tenant stuck to mo For 18 years before It occurred to him that ho vvns my serf. Whon he paid mo my rent for the eighteenth year \\o mustered up courage to tell mo that T was a robber and a parasite. Me said that his labor paid for the land, yot I still owned it and now tho Plice was worth seven times as much nil h ffom n« a8 'M' hc ? llc flrst rentecl lc from mo.

HUNTERS Editor The Callfornian: It deems as though a few of our city neighbors are complaining of being overrun with stray cats, (ttgs, etc. But they themselves on a b?au- ful moonlight night think It Just tho right place to drive Into one's orange grove to bo out of sight of tho highway, to guzzle about a dozen cans of beer, half a dozen beer bottles and several small whisky flasks in fact, yesterday morning I picked tip 11 cans, five beer bottles, three whisky bottles inside tho border row where one party had a hilarious time. Then wo have these amateur hunters who drive through tho groves and carry their anti-aircraft guns firing into tho orchards knowing not whether a hired man may bo In the grove working. There have been several occasions where workers had close shaves with stray bullets. Besides it being dangerous folly to hunt in groves, a great deal of fruit is ruined by buckshot. We of the country have to take n lot of things from tho city, tho same as they must feed tho farmer's cats SUNKIST anowtsn nouto 5, Box 67. Bakorsfleld, September 11, Ifl.'IO. (By FREDERIC J.
