The man got off a freight train in Bakersfield today and applied to the state free employment agency for work. Before clerks could obtain his registration, however, the man was seized by convulsions.

He lapsed into unconsciousness within a few minutes and died, it was reported. Frontier Regalia Remindful of Happenings in Early Kern Days I/ERNVILLE, "the advent Complete Data Filed by Holfelder on Citv- ^ j County Project j COSTS AREJ^IGURED Present City System Is Called Inadequate; in Poor Repair TDECOMMBNDATION that the city council co-operate with the Bounty Board of Supervisors In the ormation. of a sanitary district to provide a sewerage system and sewage treatment for greater Bak- ersfleld Is made by City Engineer Toe Holfelder In a comprehensive report made at the council's request. Tho engineer has compiled complete data on present population, possible future growth, and sanitary loedo of the city, together with tho construction und operating COHIS of different types of sewage treatment plants. Ho recommends the 'primary" type aa tho most economical solution of the city's sewerage.) needs. To servo Bake.rsffield this plant •would cost $67,376, with an operating cost of $11 a day. , For greater Bals- ersfleld the cost would be 181,250 anil tho operating coal $12.50 a day. Other Types Other types of plants aro us follows: Chemical precipitation, Bakersfield »99,372, greater Bakersfletd $122,522; trickling filters, Bakersfield $230,120, greater Bnkersfleld $208.- | 000; activated sludge, BakerHfield | $208,575, greater Bakersfleld $266,500. | With hlH recommendation Kngln- ecr Holfelder eugguMed that tho La- gum-- Hquare pumping fttation be converted'to the use or a storm sewer system und the present new- erage system be connected to tho Virginia tract pumping station, and that the Palm street pumping system be repaired. Mr. Holfelder recommended that ho be Instructed to prepare planet and specification)) for construction of the primary sewage treatment plant und retain tho consulting services of a sanitary engineer. He also recommended that application bo made to the federal public works administration for assistance In financing the project. Of the city's total area of seven square miles, Mr. Holfelder reported, 88 per cent Is aewered, tho remainder being large holdings In uninhabited areas. There are estimated to be 7000 connections. The 93 miles of lateral and branch sewers, with the exception of portions of thex privately constructed Williams system, are In good condition. Plant treatment, however, IH Inadequate, he reported. Tho detention period of the various pumping stations Is too long and with tho Impediment of free flow at the sewer farm, there results a septic sewage. In addition, odor complaints have been received from tho Laguna Square pumping station. I'rescnt System Inadequate "Present sewage treatment IH by very Inadequate settling In an open septic tank," tho engineer reported. "The tank, 200 feet In diameter with 8 feet of side wall depth and a capacity of 1,800.000 gallons, was originally designed as a four-quadrant, submerged feed soptlc tank. It wan converted In 1912 to a sedimentation tank with a detention period of two hours for normal sewago flow. "Tho tank in now tulo grown and full of sludge, with a channel for sewago flow across tho center. There is no clarification of sewage at the present time." Tho tank Is located on tho 480- acre city sower farm, 3,6 miles southeast of the city In a sparswly settled district, with prevailing winds away from tho city. This Is where tho proposed primary sewerage treatment plant, would bo built. "Although the value \n Iwyoild ap- Sept. 30.—With of Bakersfteld's Frontier Days celebration, an old timer from the Kern river decided to Journey down to the southern San Joaquln metropolis to view the Whlskerlnos and the bonneted lasses he had heard so much about during the past few weeks. The sight of bearded chins and old-fashioned ladles recalled for him the old daya of Kern county which are now commemorated each year by citizens of the county. "Why, they wore beards like that one when old Raymond ran a station at Coyote Hole," he muted. "He was the feller who got caught In a cloudburst and was washed, with half his house, several miles down the gulley before he could crawl out with his mouth full of gravel." With additional features of Frontier Days boosters adding fresh stimulus to his memory, he recalled many real frontier happening*, and many characters who would find the present atmosphere of Bakersfield quite home-like. There were many squaw men In those days, said the old timer, and Indian women made fine help mates for the pioneers. Then the old timer saw a "git- up" which reminded him of George Pattengll who once lived on the old McFarland toll road between Tall Holt and Whltky Flat. "He was a great one," said the old timer. "He told the biggest lies that were ever heard. I mind one time he told of going .out to his woodpile to chop some kindling. He saw a rattlesnake and made a pass at It with the axe. He misted It and the dern thing bit his chopping block from which he split three cordt of wood before the swelling went down." In leaving Bakertfleld, the old timer patted the small Chlnete colony on Eighteenth street. He remarked that the Chlnete had not gone far In changing hit style tlnoe the gulches of Keytvllle and the kltchent of the early rancheswerefilled with orientals. He recalled how he who cooked" for Bill Landert, cattle baron of the 1880i, had been accused of boiling up rlatas on occasion. All of the Chlnete cookt were great gamblers, he said. "Chinee* 1 Henry, cook for Andy Brown at Weldon In early days, would bet on anything from the weight of a hog to the turn of a card. The old timer waa among those who used to weigh the hogs before betting with Henry. Often "Chinee" Henry would be out gambling until dawn, the old timer said. On such mornings he would charge up to the ranch on hit hone, throw tome pitch Into the stove and feed the breakfast fire with tlabt of bacon In order to prepare a hasty meal. At he neared the mouth of Kerncanyonthe old timer sighted remlnltcently and said, "They shore are making It look like old times down there In Bakertfleld. I'll make It a point to come down to tee the parade and them rodeos."
