"Tho Soviet government adhered to the agreement for noninterference in tho affairs of Spain," Llt- vlnov said, "only because she la a Sopt 49.-—Many ofi IV the remaining monuments to the enterprise of the pioneers of Kern' county flash subtle stories to the speeding autolat. They speak with mute eloquence of the problem* solved when Kern county was, truly, a portion of the last frontier. Many auch monuments already have given over to the destructive action of time and the elements; but othora, like the prehistoric carvings of Indian tribes long since, vanished from tho earth, yet survive to remind the passing traveler of the long, hard road from primitive to modern times. Such a monument la the ancient pole fence which lines the Kern Canyon highway opposite tho old Palmer ranch between Bodflah and Isabella. This fence, built of Jtijjlper polea placed vertically in tho ground and interlaced with other polea of Juniper, was old in 1864 when Mike Eraklno, from whom Eraklne creek took its name, ran a rood house at that point, it was an old fence before tho founding of Havllah, .Kern county's first county scat. And many of the prospectors who flocked to Havllah during the Clear Creek gold excitement stopped with Mike Krskino when tho old juniper fence represented to them the first evidence of the ground work of a new commonwealth. The fence was constructed when modern materials for fence building were not available. Yet it has outlasted many ot tho barbed wire fence* built In comparatively recent years. Except for short stretches waahed ,aWay when Eraklne creek became turbulent from cloudburata, tho old fence still stands serviceable enough to hold KB place against modern improvements, Now, In the field It encloses, a modern tractor drags modern ploughs and harrows. Tho story that the old fence tells, however, goes back to a day when it protected a field of wild grasses for the half- wild caltlo of a frontiersman. And tho most modern chapter of that story cannot possibly 1 extend beyond a time when oxen turned tho first furrows of tho field with primitive ploughs. OLD BULLET FATAL SURREY, England, Sept.
