Reeg 20 acre orange grove on the east city limits, fronting on the car Hue, for 840,000, the purchaser being D. L. Peters of Pasadena. Mr. Petera was out yesterday and made arrangements to move the residenoe now on the property to make loom fora 815,000 home, which be will occupy as soon as completed. This is one of the most beautiful building sites in our city and adjoins the site purchased for the new high school building. The Hazzard & Welch ^Co. reports the sale of twenty acres of oranges and raw land owned by Henry Frey to A. J. Warner of Los Angeles. Consideration 816,000. Long Beach property, valued at 817,000, was taken in exchange. This firm has a large clientage as they are known as hustlers the entire length of the Sau Gabriel valley. Another big sale is reported by Fairly & Pollard, the 20 acre orange grove of A. P. Kerckhoff, east of his home place on Puente street, to Geo. I. Lytle of Los Angeles, for §25,000.

Thorpe returned this week rom Imperial valley, where ho has been on a tour of inspection, primarily looking into the prospects of citrus culture in that locality. While awny he visited Imperial, Brawley, El Centro and Holtville. He found each plane full of home- seekers and parties seeking investments and the business men all doing flourishing trade. What few marvels there are, are earlier than those )f this vallev ami much citrus stock is being prepared, but the industry will have to be tried out before confidence can be established that ;here is no danger of frost. The chief industries at present are stock raising, especially horses and hogs, and the growing of early melons. ' From Brawley 5000 turkeys were shipped to Los Angeles for the Thanksgiving trade. At El Centro Mr. Thorpe saw a horse sh/jw where over 40 head of fine stock were on exhibition. Altogether he is much pleased with bis trip and echoes the President's opinion bhat land there will soon be worth $500 to $1500 an acre. •^*£ < '• ' J « —DENTIST— Office hour*: 8:30 to 12, 1 to 4. 7 Home'Phone 47 Office: Bank Blk., - Covina, Cal.

The Argus lias befin successful in securing a description of the boundaries of the territory which thoanti- divisiouists propose to exclude from Pomona county, if possible. They make the claim that they have already secured sufficient signatures on the petition, but it is noticeable that they aro still using every effort to secure additional names, whiiih would scorn to contradict their claims of victory already achieved. The lines are as follows: Commencing on county line in San Antonio canyon one-half mile south of Hngsbaok, thence west on lino to northwest corner of 1-1-9, thenne south on west line of 1-12-13-24-2G and 30 to point on Mesa avenue, thence east on Meaa avenue to roac east of O.

I. C. KAIKLY. Tax Collector. Prosecuting Attorney E. J. Fleming declared Thursday that he would issue a complaint against Coroner R. S. Lanterman, charging him with intoxication under a statute which provided for the forfeiture of office by any county official found guilty of disability to perform his official duties by reason of intoxication. Mr. E!sffi!n Gifford, who arrested Dr. Lanterman Tuesday night hi a house on Ord street. If the charge is proved, Mr. Fleming says, the office of Coroner of Los Angeles county can be declared va- oant and the Board of Supervisors be called upon to appoint another man to the office. Coroner Lantermnn professed contempt for what ho declared was an evident political attempt to dispose him from office in favor of some one else, and ended by saying that he would uot resign. • "I cannot understand the source of this attack,'.' he said, "but I will find out what it is before I am through with it, 1 am not guilty as charged and I shall prove it. This thing is going to bo fought out to the end and in that end I am goliiK to bo vindicated. " Hotel Vendome Under New Management. Hotel Vendome is under now management. Mr. J. D.

The real eslait) firms of the Maz x.ard Realty Company and R. i. Welch have consolidated and the new firm will be known as ilax/ard A Welch. In Low Angeles the firm will be represented by C. L.

The cunnnM- dationof these linns will make it one of the i^tron«eKt in the valley and the (.eihonnel in compound without exception of wideawake, h.n-l Senior Class Play. To n crowded audience on Friday night, and a fair-sized ono on Saturday, the senior class of our high school presented their piny, "All tho Comforts of Home," and those who expected tho usual amateurish performance wore agreeably surprised by a remarkable degree of histrionic talent. Much credit, is duo tho class tenoh- or, Misa Hitwes, and Miss Lemonds, the English teacher, who worked so hard in training their pupils and staging the play. Tho play itself is ono which has been performed by somo of our host professionals. The plot was a particularly laughablo ono. A jealous man with a charming daughter and equally charming second wife, think? . OTIC of tho former's lovers is attracted by the latter, and in do- spuir whisks the family away to Europe, leaving in charge of the commodious home an impocunioua nephew. Being in desperate uecd of funds, a bright idea occurs to the nephew, and with tho help of a sim- plo-minded young man who doesn't care about money but likes the idea of getting 'alf, he fits the house up for roomers with a common living room for all. Soon the rooms nro let to all kinds of people and a general mix-up occurs and all sorts of funny things happen. Just as things get to their worst, a telegram announces the return of tho family with tho lover tagged right, and the boarders make themselves scarce. Every part was well enacted nud it would be unfair to pick out somo for special praise, only that some characters were more prominent. vr 5?aul Ouster was iaiasljsble as ,the libe\v-tfntT iWer, v dba liB8 fcbowii bis ability in like manner before. Hoyt Leisure, as tbe man-of-njl-work, wna particularly good. Harry Neil as tbe retired business man with too much spare time on his bands, made realistic lovo to tho young lady from the opera comiquo (Miss Philloo), and these two wore particularly noted for their facial expressions, which, ono may imagine, wore remarkably true to life. Tho former was well watched by his suspicious wife, May Hull, and Jlattio Nyo was very sweet as tho daughter, Mr. Ouster's sweetheart. CliarluH Walters was the nervous musician, who had all kinds of fits. Frank Chapman was the jealous man, Loisel Leighton his second wife, and'Clani Fensoin his daughter. Minor imrts were taken by Hohert Philloo, Walter Asohonhrmmttr, Charles Perrin, Lloyd Taylor and Sad if! Lincoln, Violin solos by Kobcrt Philloo, accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Fit/- grirald on Friday evening, and by Vyvyenno Fiiuldor on Saturday evening, were a welcome addition to a very excellent entertainment.
