BLAZE OF COLOR. In tho evening an exceptionally] good program was arranged by Mrs. j jSamuel Ascheubrcnnor aud Miss An 1 gie Griswold. Mrs. Aschenbrenner created a beautiful Htage picture out oE a bevy of costumed children. The small tots who sang their dolls into j dreamland made a decided impression on the audience, and the hoop drill, in brilliant color, by larger girls,was encored and enjoyed. Miss Hazel Tobey of Los Angeles sang pleasingly, accompanied by Mrs, Andrew Mo- Allen. Prof. R. W. Groom played, "The Lost Chord." aud "Oh, Promise Mo" on the cornet. Miss Anna Reynolds rendered a fine number for pianoforte. Mrs. R. M. Douglass, who had charge of thoohryMintljuiniim i exhibit, gave a short explanation of 1 the. methods employed in growing this flower. The display of chrysanthemums at this exhibit, would have been a revelation to any eastern grower. The flnweis, some of them, had reached an enormous sixe, while still retaining their delicate beauty. The hall was transformed into a bln/n of color.

Eyman Huff of the Co- viua Fruit Exchange and wife returned on Saturday from the extended trip which had its inception in tho convention of growers and shippers in Kansas City. Mr. Huff is enthusiastic as to the prospects ahead for the whole country. In talking with hundreds of business men in all the principal cities of the United States, he found that but, ouo thing in their minds intervened between prosperity and the American business in general, that of the possible defeat of the Ro- publican party in the election, and with Mr. Tafl. safely elected, Mr. Huff says that he is positive of an immediate change in business for the better throughout the United States. In speaking of tho orange trade, Mr. Huff said: "I found the jobbers in all the j cities very markedly in favor of the handling of California oranges. They seem to be only too glad to get the navel, if it has good color and si7.e, taking it every time iu preference to the Florida oranges. Some very good Florida oranges are iu the market now. I sampled good fruit from Florida in Oklahoma City. Tho Northern California oranges and the Florida output will continue t,o supply tho Christmas trade, very few coming from Southern California." While in the southern states, Mr. Huff bad ample opportunity to note the fact that an immense cotton crop is to be put on the market, iu fact a banner crop, which only waits the settlement between the "uif?M riders," who are conrject«d with the association T of cotton glowers; acid the independent growers, to be placed on the market. "The sale of a large cotton crop means the stile of oranges in those states." Mr. Huff stated. Tho trip was an enjoyable one, as the weather was fair aud agreeable throughout. Double WeddlnR. In these materialistic; days church weddings arc becoming constantly nuiYe rare, yet it secmH most fitting that such serioua vows should be ratified in a building cotiBflcratcd to the worship of the Divide Father. On Saturday tnoruiitig at 11 a.m., Holy Trinity Church was tho scone of a still more rare event, a double wedding, when the two charming English girls who lately came over tho seas with Mr. and Mrs. .1. W, Popperwell were united to two well known Charter Oak ranchers, also Englishmen. The bridee, Minn Anna Denriant of London and Margaret HehhoH of Rothwell, England, were united respectively to Walter Jackson and Ernest Johnson and v.eie daintily gowne.d in white with hats nn Hiiite. Two «w<«;t little bridesmaids were tho Misses Mildred and Vernii) Jackson and Messrs, (ieo. ArniJIIcd and Leonard Jackson acted as groomsmen.

REAL PROPERTY ON THE MOVE Large Deals Immediate Result of Election Outcome. The closing of several big real estate deals is the immediate result of the removal of all business strain by the election. This business began at onee to improve as soon as the long period of anxiety came to an end, and besides a number of saleH, inquiries have been pouring into the realty ottlees during the past three days from Los Angeles and vicinity, and the prospect looks very bright for the remainder of the season. One of the moat important Hales is that of the ranch owned .1. H. Pan- 1 key on Citrus avenue and Workman street. This tract of 51 acres, 2B acres oC which is planted to oranges and lemons, was sold to Mrs. Mary K. Kouso of Redlauds for »-ir>,000. The tract is a splendid piece of interest bearing property, aud is considered by experts to bo a flue investment for the consideration given. Mrs. Rouse lias sold a big orange, ranch in liodlaiids to come hens, and has already taken possession, with the idea of making Covina perman- itly her home. Mrs. Kouso states that she considers Covina much more suitable to comfortable living than towns further up the valley. The ranch also has a well started walnut grove. Tho sale was made through the realty firm of Pollard & Hutou- FJNOH BLOCK SOLD. (. C. Fairly reports tho sale of tho T. E. Finch building on Citrus avenue in the center of the town t;> Nelson KnodgniHS, who takes the building iu exchange for eight acres of oranges on the east, side of Lark Kllen street adjoining the Southern Pacific railroad. The former owners of the block, Hamuel and George A.'iChcuhronner, make practically an even exchange for the ranch property, with a valuation of SH.UOO. I.O. Fairly also sells the A.O.
