ThankRgiving was commemorated with n splendid union service at the Baptist Church on Thursday morning, the attendance being the largest of any similar service held in Oovina. Tho sermon, a scholarly address, was delivered by tbe Rev. Pnnl Stevens, pastor of tbe Presbyterian Church. On the platform were Rev. S. W. Gage, Rev. Harry W. White, and Rev. W. O. Conley, who assisted in tbe services. In addition to a large choir there was special music by a quartet composed of Mrs. S. VV. Gage, Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Crawford and Mr. W. Q. Custer. A special collection was taken and placed in tbe bands of a committee composed of the mayor, E. H. Lahee, and representatives of various churches, Oscar Miller, A. M. Seeley, S. Douglas and Alex Carnnban, to whom all applications for relief during the coming winter will be referred. In the Episcopal Church tbe usual bright musical service was rendered and a fair congregation was present. The Rev. Alfred Fletcher spoke feelingly of tbe blessings of state, home and church. Thanksgiving Football. Azusa 5; Covina 0. A snappy game of football between teams of Azusa and Coviua boys was witnessed by a large crowd of v rooters here on Thursday afternoon arid'resulted iii a score of 5 to 0 in favor of Azusa. The Azusa ten in was far heavier tban Covina and in the first half of the game the home boys appeared afraid to tackle the viftiton,_ who succeeded in scoring *a touchdown. In tbe second half the Covina boys regained their equanimity, however, and kept tbe Azusa team on the defensive, the youngsters making some excellent plays against their heavier antagonists. The play was snappy and good-natured throughout and Covina hopes a return match can be arranged with the Azuas boy.e. Real Estate.
