It was reported that Mr. Parks had been in R^vendde yesterday and being much pleased with a certain machine standing at Seveatb and Main streets, gave a sti^altér a check for .1100 and dfove the machine home. When he arrived ihere last night he was informed by Chief Ramsey that the car had been stolen from C. Wilder, who is employed at March aviation field. Word to this effect had been sent out érom the sherill'9 office. Parks is , said to bave ordered his bank to stoi]^ pajrment on tb^ elteck which had been made out to G. A. Muniiabal. He gave a desc'ription of the man and~ the Riyerside <rfBoera started out to hunt for the tiileC. Ibe Seal lusts Parks , went to Riverside yesiier-day and stole the car he drove home. Last night he ren^oved the camj^g equipment from the car which Tie burned in his back yard; the carpenter's tophi in the car at the time It was stplen, were found hidden in ,yarIous. parts of the barn where the ci^r was stored.

He called at the house and arrested Mr. Parks taking him to the county jail this momingf after be had confessed 'to having stolen the machine. He had his hearing this forenoon and was bound over to the superior court.

I^l^teaoae, Deatmctive Squirrels im dbttiitg theirs; New Subtly Poisoii Su Been Beoeived Mr. Harry Drobish, assistant' to thé County Farm Advisor waô in the city tl^Ia morning, having brought a quanti^ of squirrel poison down for purcha^ by local farmers from the Billings Dhig store. This being squirrel eradication week, 'every farmer Is expected to do his part in helping win the Svar by making war on the squirrels which annually destroy so much of his grain and other food growths. Expécts have estimated that one squirrel on a ranch in a year's time will destroy from one to two dollars worth of produce. This would not be so bad if Mr. Squirrel was satisfied tp live alone, but he is not. He Insists upon being one of a thousand (or ten thousand, according to ¿Ize) upon each ranch in Southern California, and to this end will employ moat any method. By unity of action in California this week, it is hoped to make » material onslaught upon the Hun squirrel to the end that several millions will L»e on the ranches no' more. The poison which is now obtainable is made by the Riverside county Farm Bureau and is sold at coSt to the farmers. There is a state law which- com-pells farmers to take measuréS' again the squirrel pest, and where this is not done by the farmer himself, the state steps in and do^ the ■work»-cliarging same to the facgier.. It is urged as a patriotic measure and in justice to one's farmer neighbor that all make an effort to "clean up" the squirrels on their ranches. Feed to produce one dozen eggs cost 10 cents with pullets, 14 cents with two-year-old hens, and 19 cents with three-year-old hens in a three-year feeding test conducted by poul-t|^men of the United State Depart-nient of Agriculture. These were the cost figures of feed at the time of experiment, which began in' 1912, and must be corrected to present prices.

Mr. Hull will assist his son in the management of the paper. During the 10 years he has held the office of city recorder, he has. handled 1100 cases, and so far as he knows satisfactorily. There has been' some little inference in the past that Mr. Hull was not doing all tkat might in aiding in the preseilt dOftfi^ flict, that he did not belotag. ^Q'th«^ Red Cross and had not purchaisM aiyi of the Liberty Loan bonds.
