KERN DEER SLAUGHTERED BY GROWING PACKS OF COYOTES K ERNVILLE, Feb. 1.1.—The Blinking coyoto Is becoming In this section more of a destructive agent than equated In" his past depredations. Ranchers are complaining of the brazen fearlessness shown by the coyoto n the nearness of his approach to habitations; rangers nnd game wardens nnd mountain men marvel nt the great number of the skulking marauders. AA'hllo the loss of some small domestic stock has been reported, the main objective of the coyoto Is, apparently, the wanton slaughter of doer.

(Bill) Calkins, of the Durrwood resort on tho upper Kern, who witnessed the Incident, Nino deer had been driven by ft pack of coyotes to tho upper edge of the reservoir-lake of>tho Southern California Edison Company nt Intake, above Falrvlow. Tho deer, fearful to venture across the lake on tho snow- qoverod Ice, followed tho shore lino to the river. Hero the Ice wan also covered with snow but It was their only chance to croBs and to possibly CLASS MEETS escape them. tho ravenous However, the horde behind Ice was too fragile to support the combined weight of tho deer, they broke through and perished In tho swift current of tho Kern. There Is no prlco' on tho coyote's head In tho way of bounty, his extinction Is determined by the value of his hide. Trappers, professionals and amateurs nro doing but little trapping this season dun to the low price of furs. A Kornvlllo resident recently shipped three coyoto hides for which ho received 85 cents. Two years ago UICBO skins would havo brought better than $15. Circumstances Bcem to have made tho coyote Immune, to Increase his hordes, and to pursue his natural bent to destroy.

TEHACHAPI, Feb. 11.—Frank Wilson, local manager for the Southern California Gas Company, Is slowly recovering at his homo here from the effects of a harrowing experience suffered by himself and Mrs. Wilson when they attempted recently to visit their summer cabin at Alta Sierra. Mrs. Wilson probably saved her husband's life through her own courage and physical strength. Learning that their cabin was In danger of collapse from the heavy > snowfall In tho Greenhorn mountain area, Mr. and Mrs. Wilson drove to the mountains. When within seven miles of their destination tho road bo- came liflpassable from drifted banks of snow and they were unable, after four hours' work, to get their car out. Almost exhausted from their labors and the extreme cold, they started to walk to tho road camp, but covered only two miles when Mr. Wilson collapsed. Facing the danger of freezing to death, Mrs. Wilson gathered sufficient wood for a small fire, but after doing all she could to revive her husband, she was forced to proceed to the labor camp without him. Reaching tho camp, Mrs. Wilson im- . mediately procured help, Charles AVI1- kerson and two other workers making their way back on snowshoes to where Mr. Wilson waited. The party Immediately returned to camp with Mr. Wilson, where he and Mrs. Wilson remained overnight. With the aid of a road tractor the Wilson car was hauled out of tha snow and later they attempted to return homo. When they reached Glenn- vllle they were too ill to proceed and remained at tho Woods store until the following day. Later, by easy stages, they reached home and it Is believed that neither will suffer any permanent effects. . . erine Ireno of Palm, Visitors of Miss Eudora ROSEDALE ROSEDALE, Feb. 11.—A two-day sewing meeting was hold nt the homo of Mrs. W.
