The number of attractive new homes built in Covina is a source of surprise, even to the citizen who dwells here all the time. Many ot the new house* belong to business men and ranchers who have been established here for years, while others are being erected by comparatively new settlers in this district. In every instance the styles of architecture are the styles which are making this part ot the state distinct from any other locality in the world. The bungalow is the most popular, but it has a thousand shapes and forms, governed by the individual taste. An exemplification of original ideas and good taste is to be seen i-n the home of E. G. Prather on Rowland avenue. In the first place the bungalow is set facing one of the finest streets in point of beauty, a street which, with a little more expenditure of time and care might be known as exceptionally beautiful. The house is set beneath two large umbrella trees of a .peculiar variety, having a wider sweep than the common California species. The trees form a bower over the big screen porch in the rear of the house, making of this porch a cool, breezy iouuiugg place at any time of the day. The front of the home has a pergola piazza, fitted for the training of vines, and opening into the front view of the Sierra Madro range. The front porch takes up half of the front and ia built around the side, with a pergola tor climbing vines or shrubbery. The living room is the most pleasant of the interior, with pan- ueled ceilings and cool window seati. The dining room is fashioned In comfort and elegance, and a feature which makes for convenience is the buffet, built into the wall, with china closets also a permanent fixture. The living rooms are finished in natural stain, while all the sleeping rooms are in white enamel. Mr. Nash has a solar heater and a finely equipped bath room. The house is built in the center of two lots, the prope:cy embracing four lots in all, fronting on both on Orange street and San Bernardino road. The architect Is Clarence Allison. ATTRACTIVE RESIDENCE. That there is nothing more luxurious than a good bath is a well known fact among the civilized, and there is nothing that makes tor happiness in a h6me like the up-to-date appurtenances for the game. W. S. Sides bore this truth in mind when be built the pretty bungalow on Italia street which is his home. Mr. Sides has one of the finest sets of bath fixtures in the valley. His work during the past six years as a plumber has taught him the trade thoroughly and efficiently, and when he built, a home for himself be spared neither time nor expense in fitting up this room. Mr. Sides has a bungalow with four rooms upstairs and four downstairs. Upstairs there are the two sleeping rooms, a sewing room and a bath room and below ia the living room, dining room, kitchen and one sleeping room. The house is 30 by 32 feet, with a porch the entire FROM ATLANTA TO THE SEA History of Sherman's March from Soldier's Diary. Following is the story of Sherman's great march through Georgia, aa recorded in a diary kept by J. S. Eckles of this city: Nov. 21th. We lay still at the State House and during the day we heard from the fight at Macon. Our forces did not succeed in taking Maoon. They have, however, destroyed the railroad east and I suppose we will now tiovel for some other point and leave the militia in their glory. Our commissary issues us coffee, salt and sugar. We have drawn no bread since leaving Atlanta. Kilpatriok's cavalry is arriving. Our Orderly Sergeant received a commission today of first Lieutenant and commands the company. He placed me in the position he bad occupied. All the orderlies of the regiment have been promoted, I believe, and all the lieutenants to captains. The weather for the past few days has beeji quite cool but is now moderating. We have few or none sick. What will be done with the wounded is more than I know. What are our friends in "God's country" thinking about our doings? What do we know o* theirs? Nov. 25tb. With our haversacks replenished with one ration of hard bread, we left the capital and proceeded in a south-east direction. On leaving the town we heard loud ex- In the afternoon our Advance found H small force of ruilitln who hncl placed rail barricades across the road but they were speedily routed and the rear brigade marched on without knowing of thooiroutnatAune. A soldier of the 108th Ohio Infantry was killed oti the skirmish line and was buried near the roadside. At sunset we reached the good looking shire town of Sparta and in the suburbs near the twentieth corps camped, this evening having completed the second week of oui pilgrimage. Nov. '27tb. Marched along at an early hour and being in the advance wo progesaed rapidly. Our skirmish line found nothing to fire at, nud the pack mules fairly groaned under the loads of edibles which we nicked up at every farm house. About, noon we crossed the Ogeeoheo river and there is now no other considerable stream intervening between us and the Savannah. We are also on the down grade for the Atlantic. As we marched along a spark was applied to a barn containing some hundreds of bales of cotton and it was soon devoured. Prom the appearance of the quarters wo supposed that this planter might have been the owner of half a thousand slaves. Wo did not learn the nabob's name. Camped early. Nov. '28th. Three mi km brought us to the village of Louisville where the enemy had burnt a long bridge across a stream and swamp. For some reason, perhaps in retaliation of the biidge burning, some buildings were fired in the place; and others being in danger one brigade stopped to stay the flames while ours marched on and. camped, having only advanced seven miles. Our camp was on an old plantation.which had run wild and was grown up with pines fifty feet high. The rest afforded UH in this pleasant retreat is very gratefully received. The enemy is) increasing on our front. Our cavalry is in our advance. Some fine horses and mules were captured today. To be continued. LUXURIOUS BATH ROOM IN W. S.

Edwards formerly lived lias been torn down uacl a modern bungalow erected in itH place, on Rowland avenue. The dwelling IIHH five rooms on the lower floor and three upstairs. Mi. Edwardu has built hin new home in the interests of comfort and in BO doing baa not disregarded the necessity for beauty. Mr. Edwardu' front room, where the effect is pieunant and homelike, shows that It was the idea of the family to make it practical as well ah attractive. The ornamental fire place of cream pressed brick is fittted in Huoh a manner that a otuve may be used. The house is lighted from an acety- line gaa plant. One Bleeping room is arranged on the lower floor, while the remainder are above, one of the*e ; being fitted with open screen \vin- j (lows.

Towards evening we found some swamps which retarded our progress nome- what and caused us to be late into carnp, but once there we found a pleusant spot, slipped and "turned in," being twelve mi lea nearer our unknown destination. Nov. '2iJth. We marched, in the morning, through two or three mure hideous swamps traversed by sluggiah streams and then eaierged into more open country.
