County Superintendent of Schools Mark Keppel exploded this bombshell for the Oovina trustees this week, naturally causing some consternation in the town, but the situation is not as as it seems.

This very natural error of the board causes very general regret, but steps were immediately taken to rectify it. ^The election was held twenty-four hours too soon. On receiving the proof that the, election was illegal, Superintendent Keppel came immediately to Covina and con- mooting Jield'" Monflay ' {'vVnJHj?.' ' y Mr> Keppel thoroughly reviewed the work the board had" done since the formation of the new district up to the present time, and foi-nd that all procedure had been correct in every detail throughout with the exception of the unfortunate error of publication. Superintendent Keppel then suggested that another call bo made immediately, which was done. Tho next election will be held on August 24th, and will be carried out simultaneously at Charter Oak and at Covina. Under the present call every paper and all business pertaining to the coining election is being prepared at the office of the county superintendent under his personal supervision, so that no possible mistake can be made at the forthcoming elect inn. Tn tho iiifiintime, prior to the formation of the Union District, the high school building was sold to the (!ram- mar School District, which leaves tho high school without a building until the new one is erected. Until the new building is ready tin- high school will be obliged to pay rental for the transferred building at the rate of $1SO per month, as the two districts) are maintained by separate funds. With the sale of the building the (j ram mar School District assumed the bonded indebtedness of $5,000 which remained on the hi^'h school. In the forthcoming election, the matter of the school site, instead of ludiig an expression of [(reference on the part - of the voter, will be a lei-a' deci-iion Graduate McGill University, Montreal an ,j w j,j,.j QEO.

Mnrahnll took his Hco (int on H hunting trip inst week and had all kinds of luck. You see ho waa hunting melons—water and nmsk- nt the Johnson ranch, east of town. Ho got the limit. M. L. (that's Louis) Mohne.rt hna kept, hi.s four-cylinder Klmore busy lately. You see he hitches n rone to all the unlicensed ours and tows 'cm in. What ho does with tho doge after is nobody's business—they are dead anyway aud a dead dog is certainly a back number. We had a big rustic for votes at the bond election ou Thursday-—won out, too. Now there was O. J. Reynolds. He worked like n nailer, chug-chugging all over the country, and he corralled the votes all right. G. J.'s most thrilling experience came just at the last; had B big loac] of "aye" voters three minutes before polla closed; last drop of gasoline gone; twenty rods from polls; gee! you should have eeen those voters sprint. And Jim Simpson covered hia territory in great style. That Ford of his did great service, bringing in six loads of anxious taxpayers. Pour John Honaerl His machine was out of whack and he had to sit on the fence watching the other auto- inobilists rake 'om in. Preacher White in his hurry-up wagon seemed to be everywhere. But the king bee was Ed Blunohurd; take your hat off to him—'load after load of "aye" voters. Of course Watts and Rowland and Chapmau and Kerckhoff and Bisbee and a whole raft of others did their duty, but Ed r the banner—only • one intentional roter againat the bonds, aud be waa hauled from away, away off by .an automobile. I should thick be would have walked rather than use bis friends; queer ideas of morality some folks havd. To bo sure there were sixteen other votes counted against the bonds, but tho light was bud in the booths and those sixteen intended to vote aye. Do you know a man named Welch? That chauffeur ought to have a gold modal (lie won't got it though, ) Great Scott! ho did work. I'd hate to pay his gasoline bill for election day. Geo. Ha///ard of East Pnente street — you know George—prides hiniHolf upon living out on Quality Hill. Well, that's a subject for pride .sure, but he has a sister, Mifls Harder, that is hard to bent, let me tell you. Miss Harder, who is from Portland, Oregon, took that dinky little one- lunger of Haz/.ard's and ran from Covina to Long Bimou and return. Trouble'! 1 Not much. Grousing Baldwin's ranch the juice failed. Hbe found that connection from coil hnd broken; fixed it up with a piece of string.

With n heavy roar of thunder and blinding Hash of lightning, H heavily ladon rnin-oloud utruok on one of (ho peaks above tho, San Unbriel canyon and burst shortly after 1'2:;10 o'olmik yesterday afternoon, filling the gorgo i'n H few seconds with 75,000 inches of water, choked with mud, bowlders and giunt trees. Tho oloiidlinrafc occurred, ns near us etui be Hscortained, about 20 iniles above Follows' ciiunp, and rushing down rivor took every footbridge aud moveable object with it in its puth. When it reached the camp the stream was fifty-five foot wide, a foaming, leaping mass of driftwood and black mud. The approach of the flood could ho hoard for five miles. Owing to the ohokod condition of the rivor, thy water moved slowly, fighting its way through tho trees and brush that had come down the mountain side in the path ol' tho torrent. AH soon as tho cloudburst was sighted at the camp, telephone calls were sent to Azusa stables, warning all parties back, and Ben lieaton of the Covina Irrigating Company was notified in time to lower the head- gate, The flood reached tha intake at 2 o'clock. , So thick with mud was the torrent that it traveled only six milas.iu one hour aud one-half. It's Canning Time, ,, up trbW A 2 u. fl . and «ndo'nnt7rfn flood nbout halfway to the camp, uo- hitched the horses from the wflgdn and proceeded the remainder of the distance on horse-hark. The pro- jjrietor of Follows' camp was not able to determine whether the cloudburst occurred in Cattle canyon or at a nearer point, but thought, that it had its inception near tho Native Son mine. All traffic in the canyon was warned oil'. The camps wore full of people at tho tiino and great excitement prevailed until it was Been that tho water was gradually HubHiding. At Follow*' camp tho water was at tiie highest; seen during its descent, the stream fairly choking the canyon. At ft late hour in the evening the stream was still four foot above UH summer level and running thick with silt and debris. The river gradually lowered, making it possible to get n horse through, but a vast amount of clearing debris will have to lie done. Tho proprietors of the several camps stated, however, that \t would not interfere greatly with the general traffic, as the stages would be ablotoget through. Tho cloudburst was the climax of OIK; of the rnoHt, depressing days felt in the valley. The heavy bank of rain clouds in the mountains forced the desert air down into tho plain, making the weather sultry to the point of .'miioeiition. but in the after- noun tho atmoHpliere cleared. All arrangements are being made for the iiHiuii Sunday travel to i,)ni camps, ami beyond fright the residents of tlie canyon were not banned. Have you enough Fruit Jars?
