The Presbyterian Church was filled by a congregation of over 500 last Sunday evening to listen to a splendid repetition of Gaul's musical masterpiece, the "Holy City," as given by a chorus of local voices under the leadership of Miss Bess Alathilde Welch. Like the first performance in the Womana Club House two weeks ago, the solo parts on SuidayWoniug wero magnificently sustained. The only disappointment was the enforced absence of Miss Fern Bartram, contralto, on account of illness. The splendid bass voice of Mr. B. C, Brewster WHS also missed in tbe chorun, ill health also pievc.iitiuu tbe presence of this gentleman. The bas.soa, however, were augmented on thin occasion by Mr. W. P. Nve of (ilondora. The evening was a pronounced musical SUCCOSH showing the nplcndid acouatic properties of the new clnirch.

The rare collection of flowers, ahrubs and trees was greatly admired by all present and Mr. Maechtlen'e personal description made them all tbe more attractive and the regular club exercises were over an hour late in starting owing to the time so profitably spent in viewing his floe grounds. Prof. Ralph E. Smith of tbn Pathological laboratory at Whittier was the speaker and made a splendid address on "Citrus Tree Botany," which was most instructive and interesting. The annual election of officers took place and tbe following officers were unanimously chosen: President, Ben F. Thorpe; vice-president, W. P. Watts; secretary-treasurer, Miss Meta Brunjes. Mr. N. D. Mussey, the retiring secretary of the club, served faithfully for two years and was of great belp to the club and did much towards making the organization a success. He retires from the secretary- ship with the thanks and good will of the club. The next meeting of the club will- be at the residence of the president, Mr. Ben F. Thorpe, July 25, and owing to the large membership of the club it is desired that tbe hostess be advised if any guests are invited. Notes From Camp Rincon.

GOOD ROADS BOND ISSUE People will be Asked to Vote $3,500,bOO for Highways. \ Lorf Angeles county will vote July 30 on the issuance of 13,500,000 bonds' for a comprehensive system of good roads throughout the county. This decision was reached unanimously hy the Board of Supervisors Thursday evening after the adoption of the ropert of the Los Angolcs County Highway Commission, which provides for the building of about 300 miles of improved highways connecting all the important; centers. The project is the first of its kind to be inaugurated in California and is foremost of all such plans in the United States. In outlining the report of the commission, Chairman Duggett spoke of the present condition of the 5000 milea of county roads. The main public highways are all dirt roads, in fairly good condition, but in no sense permanently constructed. That tbe bond issue may not be excessive, Mr. Duggett said the commission bad eudeavored to reduce tbe mileage to be improved to the bare necessities of trattlc between the cities of the county. Relative to the proposed highways leading to Covina, the report read as follows: 10,—!'E) Monte andCovina road," certs at months. least ouci! every three Get Busy While Special Reductions Are On All Sizes and Styles PORTRAITS at C.
