(iF.nKCK SIMKo.N'OFF CAVING EARTH Henry Gahring Smothered to Death while Repairing Cistern. Henry Gahring met a tragic death yesterday afternoon by the cnviug in of a cistern on the much of Otto Anderson, cm E. Rowland avenue. Gabriug and two other rnori, Jess White and A. G. Gaut, were engaged in removing the dirt from arouud the cistern preparatory to booking it with concrete to stop it leaking. They had excavated the dirt to a depth of from six to nine feet when the walJs of the cistern showed signs of caving. Anderson, who had just returned from superintending tho work on 'the ranch, saw the danger and ordered the men out of the hole. Gaut was already on the surface, White climbed out on the east aide, but Gahring walked around to the west side where the excavation was the deepest and before be could climb out tho walls of the cistern collapsed, carrying him down into the cistern and burying him under tons of brick, concrete and dirt. He was killed outright or quickly smothered by the mud and water. It was two hours and a half before the body was recovered, >when by order of the coroner, who bad already been- commuBicated with by telephone, it WHS removed to the upder'- ' **», * ,>Wi$PW<nr* bl* wife having, died not two years ago, leav- ifag three children, two girls and a boy, the eldest of whom is now nine. Gabriug and the children since the death of his young wife, have been making their home with hia father-in- law, W. A. Lainlev. The greatest sympathy is felt for the bereaved family. The first on the scene after the accident was Garry Layman, who was working on the adjoining ranch. This young man proved himself a hero. For two hours and a half, regardless of the imminent dnnger which threatened him from tho earth caving from above, up to his waist in water and mud, he worked without cessation until he reached tho body. Up-to-Date. G. O. Dudderar, f,ho candy man, has just completed remodeling his parlors, and their artistic and dainty appearance is receiving much favorable comment. The decorating is the handiwork of Louis Petohner. Mr. Dudderar baa been a resident of this city for over ton years, mid his motto has always been, "Do up- to-date." His success in business haH shown tho wisdom of living up to the motto. He has made 11 reputation throughout tho entire Sun On- briel valley for hiH can dies- no m>- oial function is quite complete without some of Duddfirar'n confections.

"I can live thirty per cent cheaper here than in Loa Angeles," said Mr. Wells.

The ball game hero last Saturday afternoon between the tennis from Coviua and Chino high schools was conspicuous lor the many quibbles over the decisions of tho umpire nnd rules of tho game, although both sides played sonic good bull. Tho principal question for settlement was raised b3' Chino wanting tn count two runs made off it hit where tho runner made the third out, by cutting llrst base. Chiuo Insisted on counting the r.uns, which ended tho (Irut. nine innings in n tic game. In the' eleventh Chino scored and claimed victory over Covina. However, it has ninen been decided by corn potent authority that the two runs miido where tho batter was out at first do not, count.
