Precipitation for season, 4.85 inches. Last rainfall, 2.02 inches. The storm came at tho right time, and not any sooner than was necessary. Over five thousand acres of grain to the southwest nf Covina had just been seeded iu, on the Lucky Baldwin ranch, and the rain will set the seed better than it has been set for several years. While the rain came gently, it continued in a persistent downfall, and brought more benefit than if it bad rained heavier for a shorter period. The storm waters were all easily taken care of. The land lying to the southwest of Covina iu Walnut Center has been ditched thoroughly for storm water, but there is still a need for ditching there. Water in great quantities flowed down (rwindale avenue toward the Puente road, but was confined to the gutters. In some oases alfalfa was cut and lying on the ground, but nearly all the ranchers had cut and sold the November cuttiirg. The orange groves around Covina are dressed In n new g. rb of shimmering green. Before the rain Home dusty, and did in the mlln the raln^was a tremendous assistance to vegetation. Within twenty-four hours after the rain the Puente hills began to shnw green patches, abd for the remainder of the season they will present a beautiful appearance. No damage was done to telephone or telegraph lines. Caviiia was obliged to postpone its "Clean- Up" dny, resigning in favor of Jupiter Pluvius. As is generally the case, the rain caused a deaith of social events. Schumm-Benson. John A. Sohumm, for several years the proprietor of a tailor shop iu Covina, and now president of the Sagene Company of Covina, was married on Wednesday to May Benson at Banning. The marriage ceremony was very quietly performed, and the bride and groom left foi an equally quiet wedding journey to parts unknown, even to their best friends. The bride is well known inCuviua, where she has many friends. During the summer and fall she bus been making a visit to her old home in Minnesota. Ou returning she was met at Riverside by Mr. Sohumm, and the ceremony performed shortly afterward. Mr. Scbtimm stoutly denied that he had any intentions of getting married on the day hf, left Covina, but tLe marriage license printed in the papers betrayed him. His friends will bn waiting to welcome him back, no mailer how long he stays uwuy. Cleaning and Pressing. I am now prepared to do all kinds of cleaning and pressing at reasonable prices.

Mr. Bt-ards- ley says that be is unable to account for the accident in any other way excepting tbat bis attention was distracted for a moment and the btcerii;^ apparatus got beyond his control. Amphion Club. The November meeting of the Amphion Club took place at the handsome new home of Mr. Ben F. Thorpe lust Saturday evening. An unusually large number of members were present and several guests. The house was tastefully decorated for the occasion, and all present spent a very delightful evening. The following program was given: Mrs. George Knight gave a very interesting and well prepared "musical bulletin." Miss Meta Brunjes played as » piano solo, "An Matin" by Godard, and responded to a hearty encore with "Spring's Awakening," by Bach. A soprano solo by Miss Irene Wat- dey was much enjoyed, as was also a humorous recitation by the same lady. Mr. Edward Sprotto sang a bari- one solo and graciously responded with an encore. Mrs. J. M. Wbitsel and Mrs. E. P. Warner assisted with the refreshments. Among the house guests of Mr. and Mrs. Thorpe who were presau? for the occasion was Mr. Eugene Nowland, the gifted violinist, now of Los Angeles. For two seasons Mr. Nowland toured the United States with Covina's world renowned singer, Ellen Beach Yaw. It is more than probable tbat later in the season Mr. Nowland will favor Covina with a concert. Christina* Festival. An entertainment of an altogether unique nature will be placed in Co" " " " Church. The'affair is unjier tl/« direction of Vera Jane Bdwanis of LOB Angeles, one' of the ipbSfc talented readers and dramatic teachers in that city. Mrs. Edwards baa been very successful in putting on high class entertainments in Southern California. Recently she held a Mnrdi Gras festival in Corona, which was embraced by all the merchants iu the town, and a big parade of on industrial mnure, with finely decorated vehicles as a feature of the affair. Another of her big successes was in Chi no recently. It is Mrs. Edwards' Intention to take a largo number of local performers and stage an ensemble concert. Children will figure largely in the tableaux, while there will also be some creditable musical numbers, The dramatic and posture work of Mrs, Edwards is well worth the price of a ticket alone. She also does some very clover monologue work. The Ladies' Aid will make the affair an elaborate one. The merchants will also embrace the opportunity to advertise the entertainments, as a largi number of outside people will be attracted to the city by the entertain- meut, Celebrated Victory. The Covina Union High School band led a prncesnion consisting of the entire hiali school membership through tl:e Htrects of C'ovinn on Monday mon.iuu, and the whole town turned out to nee. The reason of the celebration was the winning of the debate which wan entered into between Kiinta Ann High School and the home school. Ahchenbrenner and Khipway, the two debaters who led the debating team to victory, rode in automobiles, and the girls and boys cheered continuously. Tin- Lund, under the leadership of J'rof. (jrooin, made, a v<-»ry creditable showing. It is now up to the biiHJ- ni/Bb men of Cuvinu to tee that them-, boys are provided will) good uni forms. With tasty uniforms of good material the boys can make as good bhowiriK us many bands in Southern California, and it will not be necessary to go out of town when a band is needed. The band mubic Hiipolied by the boya will more; than pay the rner chants fur the expeiiM: of uniforms. SUDDEN SUMMONS. Mrs. Jane Hoyt Dies from Affection of Heart. Tho Biiddon death of Mrs. M. A.
