The untrustworthy gasoline was once more the cause of a going up in flames this week, the house of J. S. Tripp caught fire at noon on Wednesday and burned to the ground. The stove was preparing the noon meal and in some manner communicated the flames to the paper and cotton lining on the walls. Mrs. Tripp was in the yard at the time, and on discovering the ula/.e, began carrying water from a nearby cistern until completely exhausted. A five-gallon can of gasoline exploded with a report that was heard in the center of town, and gave rise afterward to the story that a quantity of dynamite which Mr. Tripp had stored in the house had exploded and wrecked the building. Mr. Tripp was a'way from the house at the time and did not arrive until the fire had practically destroyed his home. Nothing was saved from the dwelling. Mrs. Tripp was left without clothing and was obliged to go to the home of her daughter, Mrs. G. A. Howard, Jr., of Los Angeles, where a new outfit was secured. The exhaustion and excitement rendered Mrs. Tripp ill for a time. The house is situated nearly a mile out of the center of Covina on Citrus avenue. The fire department was not called. Orange Orchards Purchased. Stanton Bros. & Keeling tbis week sold their ten acre ornnge grove, kriowu as the "Seven Oaks" ranch, on the southwest corner of Bonita anil Bonnie Cove Avenues, to J, AV. Gillespie of Pomona, a former Co- vinaite. The grove consists one- half of Valencia and one-half of uavel seven-year-old trees, and is one of the best orchards and cheapest buys iu tbis section, 810,000 cash being the consideration. The transfer was negotiated by the J. M. Stautou agency. The old Potter homestead on Badillo street, owned by P. S. Dotts, has been sold tbis week toC. W. Potter, who buys back bis father's old place for 814,000. The ranch is situated south of E. II. Lahee's grove. It was occupied an:] owned by the Potter family as early as 1885, atid the trees and improvements on it were among the first in this town. The property is consider"! to be very desirable, and is a valuable addition to Mr. Potter's possessions. NINTH AMONG SIXTY. Quy E. Fairly Receives Notification of Appointment at Owens River. Ciny E. Fairly, proprietor of the local electrical fitting store, has been, notified by the civil service commission conducting examinations for the Los Angeles aqueduct department, tbnt he stands iu ninth place out of a total of GO applicants taking examination for position. The commission has recommended hiui highly for a position, and Mr. Fairly has received a letter from the. department asking him to report to Mr. Unrdett, who has charge nf installing plants and machinery along the Owens river 'aqueduct. The salary will be 8100 per month. Mr. Fairly is not decided whether or not to accept, but says that he will probably give it'a trial of two weeks as this opportunity is offered him by tbe department.

Van Der Nailler school of engineering in San Francisco, and after being in partnership iu tbe electrical business for some time iu this town, went into business for himself, and has a well fitted shop no Citrus avenue.
