Tbe reports rendered to tbo Graud Lodge for the term ending June 30, 1908, show a total membership in the district of 700, a gain of 33 during tbe last six mouths. All the lodges are in a very healthy financial condition and great interest is being taken by both officers and members. The officers elected and installed, in all instances, were fully up to the standard of Oddfellowship, being well posted in tho new ritual and unwritten .work of the order. The work of tbe installing officers received high and deserving commendation.

He also especially • wishes to thank the officers and members of all the lodges visited for the courteous manner in which be wan received and treated during his official visits, Business Change. Elsewhere, iu the advertising columns, will he found the announcement of the sale of the grocery busi ness of Brown A Bohri to J. I 1 '. Home, formerly of the firm of Hull & Home, geneial merchandise, of Downey, Cal. Very general regret is expressed by our oiti/.eus at losing the genial members of tho firm of Brown >V Bohri, as these gentlemen, although comparatively newcomers, have made many warm fiiemls both in business and social circles. : Mr. Home is a thorough grocery 'man and will make a very valuubh: ; addition to tbe business circles of our city. With his family, a wife •and two daughters, he has already ; moved to Covina and for tin: prenent 'will occupy the Casey residence on the Han Bernardino road.

D. Reed of East Badillo street, engaged iu a running gun fight with two chicken thieves who were raiding tho roost shortly after 1 :30 o'clock Saturday morning. The marauders, two men of medium stature, bad killed ten fat bens and bad them in a sack when they were discovered by Wallace and a younger brother, Tom, who were awakened by unusual noises In the ben house. As soon aa the thieves emerged from the building Wallace opened fire with a 38-oaliber Smith & Wesson revolver. The men dropped the sack and ran, tbe boy following them iu the dark for over a quarter of a mile, firing as fast as he could load. A trail of blood i'ouuJ tho following morning is conclusive evidence that at least one bullet took elloct. Dr. Reed was absent, making a professional call. Wallace is a freshman in the University of Southern California. Death of a Veteran. Death has removed another well known citizen from our midst.

West wood Collins is kept busy those days motoring between tbo cottage on the San Bernardino road i and the imposing ranch house bo is building out Charter Oak wny. Tho bills are beginning to come in and j they make our friend grunt. Ho has discarded bin natty automobile cap and is sporting a Stctaon of tho vintage of 190.')—at least he says it is 1903. 1 can hardly blaino him i for going away back for head gear, i for carpenters)' bills and plasterers' bills and garage bills and vulcanizing bills would make a hnlc in n roll oven ns big as his. Having nothing to do the other day, the writer, out of curiosity, figured up the first cost, of the automobiles owned in this neck of tho woods and was startled to find tho totnl amount blown in on the smelly dofnnnies up to dote was 8121,150. if) — the 4tic is car fare one prospective buyer spent going to Los Air geles trying to gut ahead of tho commission of tbo local agent. He got his machine ali right, but for heaven's sake don't tell him tbe agent got tho commission too; it would break his heart. Some of our young men have lately .started to give their lady friends nuto rides. Wall, that, may bo a good idea and suited to tho twentieth century, but gee whi/! bow can they work the steering wheel -with one ? That reminds mo their daddies bad no trouble driving n horse with one. Has anyone seen the now spring tire a Los Angeles genius has sprung on the long-waiting automobile world 1 ?. If it is only a go, the pleasures of motor lug wijl be doubled, the cost of "up-keep" haired, arid those of you who have stock in a Mexican rubber plantation had better unload. Tire expense is the greatest grief an automobilist has and makes it bard for a salaried man to live within his salary -but come to think, it would be still harder to live without it. If you want to got your eyes opened to the truo speed of your car, get a speedometer (don't go to town for one, either) and find your sixty miles an hour is only thirty-live and your thirty-live drop to a measly twenty- onn or two. I'll warrant the man who wrote tho following jingle never saw a speedometer, maybe never rode in anything swifter than a local accommodation train, but be sure has bit tho sensation : TWO MILKS A MJNtJTK.
