The Covina Valley Farmers' Club met last Saturday iu i«>jular monthly meeting at the home of N. D. Mtissey on West Badiilo street, president B. F. Thorpe presiding. After reading of the minutes of previous meeting the club was favored by a reading from Mrs. J. E. Heath, on Deacon's Courtship," which vulsed the assembly who very liberally encored this popular reader. A report of the meeting of tbe Pathological Institute of Whittier held last week was given by B. F. Thorpe, W. P. Watts and C. E. Bemis. Much good seems to have come from this meeting, and many very valuable suggestions to the grower, especially along the line of more careful handling of the fruit in picking and boxinu. For example, tbe Chase Company of Liiver- aide related how they have set np n reform in tbe matter of more careful handling with tbe result that last year, they received from fifty to sixty cents per box more than any other house because of tbe splendid condition of the fruit on arrival, and the same results are following this season. Tbe club seems to think it time for reform in the Covina Exchange when such profits are so apparent. Mrs. John Brunjes sang "The Slave Song," and Mrs. W.W. Nuzum. "Hold Thnu My Hand," to tbe delight of tbe audience. These sweet singnrs are decidedly popular with the club as weljl as with the general public. Mr. T^ W. LaFetra of the Glendora club conveyed the greetings of bis club in a very entertaining and fraternal •pirtt. At the close of tbe program tbe Rev. P. G. Stevens approached tbe station of the worthy secretary, familiarly known as "Captain" Mussey, .and addressed him with reference to the tact that the club had gotten the news that their secretary was that day celebrating the 70th anniversary of his birth. While the speaker was complimenting him on his well preserved condition and that he was seventy years young, Mr. C. E. Bemis emerged from the lemon orchard carrying a mission style rocker, and the "Captain" was presented with tbe same in the name of tbe club. It was some time before tbe effect of the surprise per-' m it ted of speech from tbe lips of the grateful secretary, but be got at it after a time and very heartily thanked hia good friends and neighbors for their kindly spirit and thoughtfuluess. It being tbe celebration of tbe Captain's birthday, he took the liberty of trespassing on the well kept rule regarding refreshments, and first tempted tho gathering with a look at bis birthday cake, all lighted with candles, and the feasi was spread. And what a delicious feast it was! Just ask any of tho fifty about it if you want to know. Everybody wished the Captain, arid bis good wife, who only two days previous hud celebrated her UUth anniversary, many happy returns.

On Friday next, Ajril :i, a school election is called to name a trustee to succeed iJr. J. I). Heed, wnose term expires. Dr. Heed hasserwd in this capacity continuously for twelve .years, and despite the wishes of all citi/cns, declines positively to allow his name to he used auain. He has given the patrons ui the Covina schools much of his valuable time and during these years we bava .seen our schools grow and prosper and they are today in the front ranks of the educational iiifetitut ions of our county. A worthy successor io l>r. Heed has been mentioned in Iir. (i. l>. Jennings, h practicing and (in.-iperuus physician, and a gradua j e of the University of Michigan. Annual Meeting; of the First Presbyterian Church. In the face of the threatening weather, it was a large aud happy crowd of people who gathered Thursday evening'in the- parlor and social hall of the First Presbyterian Church for the annual congregational .meeting of the church. The tablet! had been spread in the social hull and presented an - animated anpearauoe surrounded by enthusiastic members and friends. After supper tbe meeting was called -to order for transaction of business and reports of committees, B. L. King, the chairman of the board, occupying the chair. Reports from all departments of the church were most encouraging, showing large advance numerically and financially. Elders aud tru*tcos were elected for the ensuing year nud the report of the building committee was listened to with interest aud approval and a distinct pride in the splendid church ulaut brought to a finish by the efforts of the faithful men composing the committee. Much credit is due the efficient committee of Indies bnviuu in charge the decorations and supper and the young people who served. Miss Oil- more entertained delightfully with readings.
