ROUSING MEETINGS Thousands Listen to the Brooks Bros, at Christian Church. The Brooks Brothers Revival at the Christian Church has attracted large audiences this week and there has already been a number of additions to the local congregation. Theso evangelists have a national reputation and their services have been attended by a number of visitors from neighboring towns including Los Angeles, Huntinaton Beach, Pomona, Pasadena and others. Delegations in special cars will attend the services on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. There will be a special service for all the young people of Covina at the Christian Church Sunday afternoon at three o'clock. It is called a "String Service." Every child is asked to bring a string as long as he is tall. Evangelist W.T. Brooks will lecture on, "Two Stairways." The young people are taking great interest in the "Sunbeam Chorus." which is under the leadership of Rev. A. K. Brooks. He speaks in very complimentary terms of the adult chorus which leads the revival singing. The ladies of this chorus served luncheon on Wednesday evening at six o'clock in the dining rooms at the church which the preachers, all the singers and the "Sunbeam Chorus" were present and enjoyed a general good time. The evangelists will conduct a street meeting on Saturday night of this week. The choruses will sing, there will be special music by the evangelists and a short address by Rev. W. T. Brooks. This is out of the ordinary lines of regular revival work ae carried on by most churches and will no doubt attract a very large crowd. The service will begin about eight o'clock. On February 16, the third Sunday of the revival the Brooks Brothers will hold a mass meeting especially for men which will be a "patriotic service" in the interest of good citizenship. All the fraternal orders and men's organizations of Covina will be invited to attend in a body wearing full regalia. The orders will bo given reserved seats. The revival services begin every night at 7 :30 and close by 9 o'clock, making the meetings short. The songs and services are being very heartily received and the last few nights standing ronm has been at a premium. Tangled Batik AcoounU. "It Is remarkable," said an old bank tinployee, "how few people keep their bank accounts absolutely correct. At ordinary times this falling Is not conspicuous, because books nre usually balanced when Ihere Is still a credit to the depositor's account. When the balanced book Is received with the vouchers the usual discrepancy la found after much labor In an omitted entry, either deposit or i-hot'k or In the form of an error In addition or subtraction. The thing is usually settled nt home without our help. Hut when a lot of women go to a bank, each one with a cheek til ready made out representing her balance, then look out. Fortunately I have had no experience In that way, but I know that o.ot one woman In ten—and I mu charitable with the figure—keeps her book correctly, and many worn/m keep no record at all. We have one depositor who used to receive an overdraft notice regularly every month. Now, by an arrangement with her, we give her notice when the balance neara the $100 mark. Men laugh at the women for their failure to keep their bank accounts right, but except when a bookkeeper does the work for them the men are nearly as bad."--New York Tribune. Flour Tetti. Since more bread Is • eaten In the course of a lifetime than any other one article of food, It behooves us to hav* It of the best possible quality! Even In this era of strict pure food laws flour will be adulterated, so it is up to us to be able to test its purity for ourselves. The chief ingredients that ar« mixed In flour are whiting and alum, both of which can be discovered by simple tests. To discover alum la flour It is only necessary to remember that It coagulates with rnllk. Soak a piece of bread in water until It Is entirely dissolved, then put It on to boil with an equal quantity of milk. If there Is any alum lurking around great clots will be formed. Even simpler la the test for whiting. Moisten the thumb and first finger with a littl* olive oil and rub between them a good sized pinch of flour. If it turns brown, but does not get sticky, its purity la pretty certain. Whiting's presence will be shown by a sticky, pasty feat- Ing and no discoloration. The Jumping Off Place, "Consumption had me in its prasp; and I had almost reached the jumping- off place when I was advised to try Dr. King's New Discovery; and I want to say right now, it saved my life. Improvement began with the first bottle, and after taking one dozen bottles I was a well and happy man ag'ain," says George Moore, of Grimesland, N.C. As a remedy for couifhs and colds and healer of weak, sore lungs and for preventing 1 pneumonia New Discovery is supreme. 50c and $1.00 at Clapp's drug- store. Trial bottle free. Found a Customar. "My friends, are you aware with what vile compounds you Insult your stomachs?" said an eloquent preacher In & mining'town recently. After a short pause he continued: "The stuff served to you at the dramshops here Is not honest whisky, but a mixture of alcohol and water colored and flavored with fusel oil and chemicals. You can go to any drug store and for 00 cents buy enough of these Ingredients to make a barrel of the stuff you drink!" As he reached this climax a great burly man jumped up and, waving a five dollar bill high hi his hand, exclaimed in stentorian tones: "One moment, please. Here is my j last V. Give me that recipe. I would sooner possess it than « gold mine!" A hearty cheer by the audience ended the meeting. The preacher prudently withdrew, richer In experience and more circumspect In his remarks at subsequent gatherings.—Buffalo News. Assessment Notice.
