'THE TARIFF FROM THE STANDPOINT OF A FRUIT MAN N, Editor Callfornlan: blandly asks If the Democrats would ie willing to have the tariff removed rom wool, raisins, etc. The query impels me to give the result of some thought on the tariff as that monumental fraud presents It•elf to the people. First, I will ask, "Does protection, as represented by the tariff now In force, protect the producers of the country?" and, before going further, I will answer my question by saying that It does not. Then, as a Democrat, I will answer th Echo's question, by saying that I would willingly see it removed, as imperative, on such things as I am engaged in supplying to the markets. "Tartiff for protection" sounds well, and looks all right in print, but who but the monopolies and trusts reap any benefits from it? The big manufacturer may succeed in keeping off foreign competition, but when profits soar high what do his laborers, those who produce his wares, get by reason of it? Why, the same old ratu of wages. Tbe manufacturer Is a unit, and can maintain his position The farmers are as small particles, scattered over the entire country, and can accomplish nothing. As an illustration of protection, I remember that for years the people desired a railroad commission. It gvas argued that then the great trans- 'portation monopolies, octopus, oi whatever one might call them, would be under control. The commission •was established, railroad rates r» malned high, the people pay the salaries of the commissioners, and other expenses of the commission; no benefits have been derived and nothing is more needed now than that the commission be abolished. But It said that the railroad companies will not submit to its abolition. The tariff as a protector has been a More Than Enough Is Too Much. To maintain health a mature man or woman needs Just enough food to .repair the waste and supply enorgv and body heat. The habitual consumption of more food than Is necessary for tbese purposes Is the prime cause of stomach troubles, rheumatism and disorders of the kidneys. If troubled with Indigestion, revise your diet, let reason and not appetite control and take a few doses of Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver Tablets and you wll soon be all right again.

The game, the first one of the season, came up to all expectations and while not productive of what may ~e called fast football, served its purpose In getting a itue on tre youngsters Coach Griffith !s fast whipping Into shape for the coming^HIgh School championship series. The Bakerafleld High this year will surely have a strong team lu the field. The lads played good football Saturday. John Stroud, who promises to be one of the stars of the team at the left half back position, was absent from the game because of an injured ankle. Robinson took his place, substituting well, despite a lack of practice. To sum up the game, the town play, ers were outclassed. Not once did they make their distance. Individually they are a good lot of players, but like ail teams of the kind, lacked team work and condition. Wesley Drown, oue of the fastest half backs that ever represented the High School, %vas oue of the back field of the town team, and met with his usual misfortune. Near the end of the first half his right kree was badly wrenched, developing a severe case of water on the Wes, who Is the only original "hard luck kid," will be on crutches for a couple of weeks.

I know that the tariff Is not selling my raisins. A neighbor told me the other day that if an offer of any kind for raisins should come floating around my way to gently waft ft over to him. The fact of the matter IB that the Republican party found that by continually parading the tariff question before the people, they could be deceived, but as Abraham Lincoln once said, "You can not deceive the people all tho -time." No, the tariff Is not er is protected by it and can get no 7, """"""""•"" twc " B " u ' uls '" better prices than are now offered Ule 8eCO , ndf ?,' °, by tW ° touc , hdown8 u and perfect kicking of two goals. Coach Griffith seemed pleased with the showing his lads made. Drury jWelman at full back was the star of 'the game. He scored two touchdowns and kicked three out of the four goals. The full back's line bucking was the feature of the game. Little Lefty Stoner, who is now attending school In Berkeley, was missed at quarter, but Grandy, after a few more games, should develop Into a valuable man.

So far as the latter arc concerned It has proven a theory that lias not been borne out by application. I believe in a tariff that would give a revenue only, on diamonds, silks and such articles of luxury as are indulg- ] eel In by the rich. But our Republican manipulators would say, "that is a tariff for revenue only, and won't do" and while winking an eye at the trusts will say, "No, we must have a tariff that will protect the laborers and the producer." and Mr. Trust, winking his off eye at the Republican political manipulator, wll say, "Yes, of course we must. The laborer and the farmer must be protected. Stuff them with tariff." CHESTER AVENUE NURSERY * } * ALBERT WEEDALL, Prop. » Flrst-clasB Nursery Stock.

Porter and Scribner, section 7, 2015— old Nathan Lease — have their well This well was started about six- a 14 inch hole and no casing in the well. This well was started about sixty days ago and is being drilled by the rotary process, which Superintendent R. C. Baker regards as being a much faster method of sinking a hole than is the Standard outfit commonly in use. Wells drilled on this property in the past have been very expensive affairs and have taken a long time to drill. Evidently the rotary Is making good on this lease. — Coallnga Oil Record. SATURDAY'S FOOTBALU GAMES UP THE VALLEY. At Fresno Saturday the Ralsiu City High School defeated Tulare In the annual football game. The score was 2 to 0. A touch-back In the first half gave the victory to the Fresno boys after a brilliant contest. At Selma the Portervllle and home High Schools played a tie game. Wo could tell you of Innumerable others. Why were Bunting, Chanslor and many others, who made their money through Investments In oil, successful? Because they were shrewd, level-headed, observing men possessing unbounded confidence In the great future of the California oil fields and the oil industry. The demand for oil Is Increases "ally. The consumption far exceeds the output, several oil companies paid substantial dividends when oil was aelllng at fifteen cents per barrel Oil IH now selling at SIXTY CENTS PER BARRE I, at. the well. The total dividends for tho year JJOS from all the oil companies now doing business in California, not Including the Standard will probably reach the $6,000,000 mark, and reach the * 10,000.000 mark for the year 1909. Therefore, the natural conclusion to arrive at Is INVEST IN OIL SECURITIES; INVEST AT ONCE. We are offering for sale a limited number of shares on what we consider to be one of the best Companies operating in Kern County, In fact. In California. We refer to the stock of the KERN ASSOCIATED OIL £°M pANY - Th e stock of the KERN ASSOCIATED OIL COMPANY is the best oil proposition over offered the investment public.

It adjoins the San Joaquin Oil and Development Company's properly, which was recently merged with the Associatod Oil Company, whose STOCK IS NOW SELLING AT $34.00 PER SHARE. It also adjoins tho justly famous Discovery well, where oil was first discovered in the Kern River oil fields. THE KERN ASSOCIATED OIL COMPANY has two wells on Its property. Well No. 1 IS IN OIL and gives about sixty-five barrels of oil per day. With a greater depth and a more approved pump, the production will be largely Increased.

We believe that well No. 2 will, with greater depth, produce a large and Inexhaustible oil supply, as are the other wells on adjoining properties.
