WAIT—WAIT—WAIT. Tho division of ol.s Angeles County IH a foregone conclusion—for two reasons. In the first place there Is to he a Pomona, county; In the second place the City of Ix>s Angeles is preparing to consolidate with the west end of the county, and for her "Consolidated city and County of LOH Angeles." If the reader doubts I his, let him read the reports of the county auditor the last two, on pages 27 and '.'t'.\, respectively, and ho will find that tho city's committee, working to that end, Is drawing over $100 a, month from the county treasury for its services-services rendered wholly in the Interest of Los Angeles city. In this connection It Is proper to say that It would be just as legal, just, as equitable, just an honest, and juHt as compulsory for the, county to pay the expenses of the men who ur< working to create Pomona county, as for the "Consolidation Commission" to draw pay from the county funds. The taxpayers of UK; entire county paying the bills of the commission working In the Interest of a special section. That's In keeping with the distribution of the road funds in the west end of tho county. Our "aunties" nay to wait, lill l.os Angeles forms her consolidated city and county, and we will be entitled to our share of ' the county equipment. "Be entitled," eh? "Our share?" Now who will determine what Is our share? And when will it bo determined? And how are we going about It to get It? Whatever our Ideas of our rights, wo would got "our share" only at the end of an expensive law suit, lasting years, and costing more than the net results. Tho big dog now has tho bone, and before wo get "our share," ihc meat IB gone (to tho lawyers), and wo will pass Iho heritage to our children before tho dream Is realised. All the yours we »ro "waiting, walling," we aro pouring our gold into the treasury of the mother county, to help build iho additional jul! mu! court house room now so urgently needed. if we cut loose now, Pomona or San Dimas will build the new county equipment, free of cost to the eouritv.

How It Came to Be Adopted by the Mchamm«larn. T\\" fTPPf-oiii. symbol of flio Mohnm- mcd.-nm has nothing to ilo with their pfcuiiiir religious 0|i!nioiis and ctT';- inonl'-s.

The Htory of fho origin of (tin frosccnt symbol Is ns follows: \Vhcn I'hilifi of Mncpdonin lif'Hlf'fjod Byzantium he had planned to storm tho city on a certain cloudy night, lint before his arrangeiniMits tvoro ffiinplfif-d the moon shorio out and dlsfovor'-.'l his Mpproar-h to the bn- uleged '•ilizonH. uho accordingly marched out and repulsed his forces, something whk-h would have been Impossible In thr; darkness. After that event all li.vznnfliio coins bore the symbol of the orescent moon, which was always alluded to as tho "savior of Byzantium." After many years the hordes under Mohammed II. captured Constantinople. At that time the crescent was used everywhere and upon everything- Suspecting that there must be magical power In the emblem, the Mohamme- dans appropriated It and have since used It as their only symbolic decoration.

Tho history of a single drop taken out of a glass of water Is really a romantic one. No traveler has ever accomplished such distances in his life. That particle may have reflected the palm trees of coral islands and have caught the sun ray In (lie arch that spans a cloud clearing away from the valleys of Cumberland or California. It may have been carried by the gulf stream from the shore of Florida or of Cuba to be turned Into a crystal of Ice beside the precipices of Spitsbergen. It. may have hovered over the streets of London and have formed a part of murky fog and have gllstenwd on the- young grass blade of April in Irish fields. It has been lifted up to heaven and sailed In great wool pack clouds across the sky. forming part of n cloud mountain echoing with thunder. It has hung In a fleecy veil many miles above the earth at the close of long seasons of still weather. II has descended many times over In showera to refresh the earth and has sparkled and bubbled In mossy fountains In every country In Europe. < And it has returned to Its native skies, having accomplished Its purpose, to be stored once again with electricity to give it new life producing qualities and equip It as heaven's messenger to earth once more. in the Church of the Holy Trinity, second Sunday in Advent: Holy Communion 7 n.m.

The first issue for the present school year of the Cardinal, the high school paper, has been issued, and with its brightly colored cover and well printed pages, presents its usual attractive appearance. The paper has been increased in size to 20 pages for tho regular issues and tho well filled advertising columns show that the manager, Harry Neil, has put fortb some Btrennous efforts to secure this result. The editorial work, under the leadership of Miss Gladys Ratekin, is also well up to standard. Covina High School will hold its next debate with Pomona High School at Coviua. The debaters are being chosen and the preliminary arrangements are boiu« made for this debate, which will occur about the last of January.
