Covina Union High School will on Monday open its doors for the tenth time, having been organized in 1899. From a faculty of two teachers and an enrollment ot from fifteen to twenty students, there is now n faculty of nine and Monday will probably show an enrollment, of 115. The faculty for 1008-9 ia as follows : A. Harvey Collins—Principal— History. Miss Efflo M. Lemonds—Vice-principal—English. Miss Ida E. Hawes—French and German. Miss May E. Griawold-—Mathema- tics. Miss Laura L. Lummis—Latin. Miss Bollo A. Williams-—Free Hand and Mechanical Drawing. Mr. Geo. W. Hursey- Science. Mr. C. J. van Vliet—Commercial Subjects. The high school takes the boys and girls just at the time of life when in the •commercial and industrial world they are becoming productive citizens. This being the case, our high schools assume a great responsibility to the state, to the community, and to the individual. They must return au adequate compensation to the boy three or four years from the productive fields of life. Tbftt is, the high school must so train the student that his efficiency when he leaves its class rooms, will compensate for the loss of time from the activities of life. He must be able to grasp a situation, understand a condition or reach a solution more readily and quickly than the one who has not this training. Tho high school, to do this, must, become more and more the "people's college." Preparing for the university must be but a small part of its work. The high school of today and of the future should consider it-H chief function that of making more efllcient citizens out ot all who can ho enticed to enroll in its classes. Some must be trained for culture and more for vocations. All should be trained together in the democracy of the public high school as long as possible. r .'.'ho boy or girl who desires training for commercial callings should find it in the high school. The elementary principles required for the skilled draughtsman should be given in this "people's college." The A. T. Stewarts, tho Thomas A. Editions, should learn the rudiments of their merchandising or mechanical constructions in the public high school. Our attorneys, our preachers, lecturers, editors and congressmen, should meet in debate and conference where the attrition of ideals is not biased by sectarian or political domination. This can be done only in the public high school. No private school for training farmers, mechanics, professional men or statesnien.should be able to outbid the schools carried on by the state. Our high schools of today are more and more meeting these conditions. C'nvina High School with her limited facilities offers much training along many of the vocational lines. The commercial department ia giving the same work as that at our «ood business colleges. The civics and debating clashes are training for lead eruhip in civil and economic life. The chemistry and phyaics and botany are preliminary to (-oil analysis, plant distribution and mechanical engineering. With the enlarged facilities of tho new high school the economics of the household, of the farm, and the principles of the mechanics' 5-hops will become parts of the regular courses of instruction. The gtadiiix princi rile for all iiietr:icii»n in the high school, or in ui-.y r.'hf;.J. must be, "lit each rtudt-nt r'or :> life of trrvi.-e to hiiijbelf, to hi.-i farnilj, to the c.,iijinuuity and t<.- the nfate. " A.ii.C. Hartman-Brubaker. The good wishes of hundreds of friends went with the departing automobile which carried awny Miss IJer- tha Brubaker and Fred W. Ilartman, who were married Thurday evening at 6 o'clock at the residence of the bride on Sun Bernardino avenue. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Mr. Gage of the Baptist Church. The home where the affair took place waa a bower of beauty in cut flowers and plants, and the marriage was solemnized beneath n handsome floral bell. Miss Elizabeth Meador, a friend of the bride, acted as lady's maid and Mr. Morris Epperly as best man, both being from Whittier. The brido and groom were the recipients of many useful and beautiful presents. The bride looked daintily pretty in a dress of soft white mull trimmed with quantities of Valenciennes Iru'o. Following the ceremony she changed her attire for a travelling suit of dove grey satin broadcloth with hat en suite. The bride is the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Brubakor, and has been employed in the local telephone office for some time. She has been an active member in the young people's societies of the Baptist Church. Mr. Hartman has been employed in this vicinity as a painter. After the wedding and short reception, at which only a few personal friends and relatives were present, the couple le^t in an automobile for Monrovia. To all appearances the automobile got awuy without being held vi p by friends, but when it reached the Southern Pacific tracks it was stopped by twenty young men, and the occupants were liberally •bbweredV with rio« and " oocfotti. From Monrovia the bride and groom proceeded by train to the northern part of the state, and will take up their residence at the home which Mr. Hartman has purchased in Corcoran. CM /.be Property Sold. Twenty acres of flue orange and lotnon lands changed hands this week in the hale oC K. J. Clizbe's ranch at the corner ot Puonte street and Grand avenue.

One of the finest residences in town is on the property, and the grounds are laid out in an elaborate and beautiful manner, making a very desirable home for a man of some means. Mr. Jones will take almost immediate possession of his now home, and will devote the greater portion of his time to the cultivation of the property. Mr. Cli/.be, who' has been in Covina for some time, will go back to his old home in Alabama. Mr. and MTU.
