It has • wil be made. As ostrich farming is been many years since anything like • a new industry in the county It a fair, especially tor the exhibition of the products and wealth of the county, has been held and from the number of entries being made it -is evident that the people are beginning to realize that an anual friendly competition, such as is common In the eastern states, will be of material benefit to all concerned. Entries are being sent in and displays will be made from all sections of the county and It is now assured that there Is but what will be repre- no industry sented. Three Pavilion*. Three canvas covered will undoubtedly be the leading novelty of the fair. The Stock Exhibit. The population of the county as a stock raining community Is by no mcaus a local one and It goes without saying that the horses and cat/ tie placed on exhibition will be the very bust there is to be seen anywhere. Kern County horses have taken many prizes at fairs and shows at other places where they have been have been erected for the purpose of housing the exhibits. One will be devoted to machinery and in this, space is rapidly being applied for. The Fairbanks-Morse Company has been working on Us display for several days and is installing a complete line of gas engines, pumps and other similar machinery. Another exhibit along the same line will be made by the Weed Pump and Engine Company shown and the Interest "In this partment will greatly Increase when It comes to competition at home, pavilions, Dairy cattle also come under this head and a substantial prize is offered for a "butter fat" test which will be conducted during the fair. Dairying Is rapidly growing to be one of the principal industries of the county and an annual competition of this Kind will materially aid the dairymen to Improve the grade of their itock, one 01 the most important features o£ the business. Entries of sheep, goats and swine, have also been made In Heap fine play, "The Squaw Man." Heap wampum and fire water for author. White man HUe play and actor. It Is just this Indian figure ot speech that calls to mind the strong originality, the simplicity of dramatic climax and the Impressive coloring of the four act comedy drama by Edwin Milton Royle which Llebler ft Company are to present at the Bakersfield Opera House tonight with the stellar role In the capable hands of Dusttn Farnum. Since Us original production there has never been any doubt as to the unqualified success of "The Squaw Man," for It 1s a revelation In the possibilities of the juxtaposition of the white man and the aborigine, leading to a plausible en tanglement of compelling pathos and dramatic strength that Is highly Interesting and enjoyable. The mater- ial bus been ;- 0 well handled by thffl author that. "The Squaw Man"" hai f proven one .if the most successful | dramas produced upon the American stage In years. From a highly civil. Ized, over-cultured spot In England, with its ancient castles and Its hi* torlc castles and Its historic assocl* tlons he plunges at once to the arid wastes of t|, far west America. For! the aristocratic ladies and gentlemeS'l of old England and the British noble-1 mn and soldiery, h c substitutes th» rough, wild characters of a watefll tank .town In Wyoming; from an I earl's castle he Jumps to a saloon whore the rustlers and bad men con-l gregate and where the Indian bat*I ters his soul for fire-water.

Hie firm extensive construction , work to be done by the Pacific States Telephone Company in and out of Ha-1 kersfleld tor two years past' Is now under way and the' company Is spending thousands of i dollars incivasing its lines so as to) improve the lon.i; distance facilities I between San Francisco and Los An geles. In order to accomplish tills purpose three new circuits are to be adde i between Bakersileld and Haul'ord and two between Portervllle and other northern points on that side of the valley. South two more lines will be, constructed, thus doubling tnc capaol ity of the company in either direction.! Work is now in progress from Han-' ford south. The telephone company has a large force of men working out of the northern town and l>> next month it is hoped to have the traffic system established. Under the present ai r.m.'ement there are two lines north l>\ way of Hanford, the aluminum, which PHSM-X through here and is used between this city and the north and south, excepting Hanford. for long dl.-ian e>'iie,- and the ordinary way line upon which An- glola, \Vasco and other .-mall places between this city and Han located.
