M. Martin, president t>f .the Kern County Farm Bureau, reported today. The Farm Bureau president, asserting that the farmer at this time is more frequently: than not receiving a price for .his ; crops which* in less than the cost of'production, calls these leglsla* tlve -plans. to the attention of all Farm Buroaii members, as well as all farmyjH of Kern county with the following: statement: • "The gasoline used by the farmer In his tractor on the ranch Is not taxed. - It is now proposed that ho shall pay the same price for the gaso- used In his tractor that % he uses in his car of which 3 cents goes for the maintenance of roads. The farmer does,not use his tractor on the ronds. This 3-cent tax would probably raise •JfMOOiOOO In taxes for the state from the farmer." , • » ' * Tax on Cows L \ ".The dairy, cow comes in for a tax. Maybe they can tax the cow and not tho-owner but the cow hits no money so the owner would pay 2J» cents per cow annually to protect " the entire public. This tax would coHt the dulry- imen'.of California over $128,000." ' **rtll* «*** «* M_ *. — * ._,_.** .ft _s iri. . i_ I They are not satfbfiyd with the 25- T J .ce.nt tax per cow so they propose a ($2 tax per cow on dairymen to complete ;the T.

"The state might be satisfied with the-'25 cents tax and the |2 tax per COW L but the.clty of Los Angeles wants a 2 mills tax per pound of butterfat. New Proposal ' -. - g, >i "The frutr-atid-vegetable-man Is not left-out of the tax.program.* from\ Los 'Angeles county is that the agricultural commissioner of that county needs more money so the proposal comes from htm to place a law in force so he can tax each and every grower for the Inspection of each car of produce Inspected by his department. ; ' * "It Is the duty of each member of the farm bureau to write his assemblyman and senator and express his views." • S ^ ^ ^ I ' i L -.

TJhe , existence of the yucca plant is wholly' dependent upon the welfare of "a moth 'known scientifically as "tetigula''yuccasella." - ' Thin moth, through some esoteric instinctive process, bun maintained the beautiful yucca plant of arid .regions,' for centuries—for longer .than any man knows. The moth, at certain times of,the year goes to, the yucca plant and molds tiny balls of pollen which It car- Vies-to other yucca plants and deposits In their plstll.s. This process fertilizes* the plant and seeds are produced; . "* * In exchange for the service thus af- *orded"ln propagating the plant, the [.larvae- of the moth' feed on some of 1'Wie: seeds, but never eat all of them. .This la ;t one of the .mysteries of entomology and botany, though its cycles is. well substantiated and has been reported by many observers.

Who Is the smartest man in town? Charles Sanders, negro, nominated .Postmaster Leo G, Pauly—but as the post office official himself points but, Sanders Is a patient In the psychopathic ward at the Kern General Hospital; and probably is no judge of the matter. . Sanders, who has ideas that the world Is coming to an end "pretty quick," entered the postmaster's office yesterday for an explanation of his strange dreams. After expounding his views, illustrated with a tantrum or; two, Sanders declared, "You are the smartest man in town because yau can read and write and you ought to explain these things." Chltf Solvts Problem Postmaster, Pauly sent him to the police station, but Sanders strayed into Judge Stewart Magee's court In the city hall, and asked the jurist fdr a few ' explanations. Judge . Magee was amazed, • and directed him to Chief Font Webster doirnstnlrs, who solved ,;the * problem 1 in a diplomatic manner. • "Dr. Joe Smith, superintendent of Kern General Hospital, la tho smartest, man hi'town,'* the chief of police told the negro. - •*, ' "That's the man-I'm looking for," the strangely acting negro, declared. "We'd take you' over there," the chief continued, "but the'only transportation left Is the patrdl wagon, and you wouldn't'want to ride in that." "Oh, yes, I'd like to ride* in -'that car,' 1 Sanders replied. Chief .Webster-called Officers Bert Doane and John Barnes. Officers Barnes and Doano told Sanders that he would-have to leave any weapons at the'Rtatfon because they might get lost In the patrol wagon and some day a prisoner might find them. Sanders dug Into his pockets and brought forth a- big-razor and a knife, which he-willingly laid on a desk at headquarters, and then climbed Into the wagon.

D. Hudson, as- wlsUnt farm adviser, said today. Through practices recommended after research by the state college of agriculture during- ^1925, and recommended to the farmers of this county, a saving of $30,000 has been effected here through more economical use of water and better cultivation methods, It Is reported. Relevent to , Irrigation practices now, Mr. Hudson said practically all the roots of fruit trees, grapevines, alfalfa and other deep-rooted crops are usually found within tho top six feet of Koll and there Is no financial Katn In wetting the earth at a greater depth. University experiments have proved that moisture does not rise in the soil except where there is a water table near the surface. This condition ia not found in the pumping districts of this country. For this reason water saturating the soil for a depth of greater than six feet Is lost.
