Portion* of n«Ml«h and Other Music Creditably Rendered at Presbyterian Church. Just a bit better than has been attempted for some time in Covioa was the sacred concert Sunday evening in the Presbyterian church, which was participated in by many of the well known musicians of this section. The music was under the direction of Mr. H. N. Wells, choirmnster of the church, who has brought the choir to a high degree of efficiency since coming to the church. The floor of the church was completely occupied, while many seats were taken in the balcony. The talented young organist, Mr. Aleo W. Anderson, opened the concert with a pleasing improvisation, after which prayer was offered by Rev. Paul G. Stevens, pastor of the church. The great opntrato solo from Handel's "Messiah" was rendered in a pleasing manner by Mr. Wells, "Behold a Virgin Shall Conceive." This recitative was followed by the aria, "O Then That Tellest," by Mr. Wells with chorus, the selection being from the eame oratorio, and during the program other selections from the Messiah were suug by Henry L. Marshall, being the recitative, "Comfort Ye," followed by the air , "Come Unto Him." The Pastoral Symphony from the Messiah was finely rendered by Mr. Anderson as an offertory, playing also the air of the great contralto solo of promise, "He Shall Peed His Flock." Mrs. Paul O. Stevens sang fully the solo of Gounod's, And Be Still;" and Mr. Phiileo rendered Sohuuian's meri" anrt another selected solo. A quartet composed of Mrs. Stevens, Miss Ada Blaucbard, Leroy Blanc- bard and H. N. Wells sang a number of selections, among which were "Brightest And Best of the Sons of the Morning," Dudley Buck; "Behold A King," Charles P. Scott; 1 'There Were Shepherds," A1 bert J. Holden; "Songs of Praise the Angels Sing," A'larns. Mr. Anderson played the Recessional March by H. E. Nichol, as an organ pnstlude. Rev. Mr. Stevens gave a brief sermon applicable to the week of .Nativity. The concert has established a reputation for creditable music for this church. beauti- "Adore Robert "Trail- Dies in riexlco. Word has been received by 1 Daniel Eeicbard of Jrwindale of the death of his brother, J. B. Reichard. The death occurred several days ago in the vicinity of San Dieguito, Mexico, and was the result of a congestive chill. The facts surrounding the death of Mr.Reichard are exceedingly meagre at the present time, as the man died some distance from civilization. Mr. Daniel Reiohaid is making every oflort possible to obtain particulars. The dead man's daughter. Mrs. Nellie Bishop of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, has been communicated with and will take charge of the remains. Mr. Reiotiard hopes to hear definite news before the first of the weok. J. B. Roiciiard was for some years associated with Daniel Itcicliurd in the joint ownership of Janda in the vicinity (if Jrwindale and Covina, and he is well known by the older residents of this district. The lands where Daniel Reichard'e homo is now situated' were once owned jointly by himself and brother, but were taken over by Daniel when his brother became interested in the lauds in Mexico. Both the brothers were interested in property in Mexico. Daniel Reiohard states that ho has no definite idea of the holdings of his brother, but u search of the records will bo made by his family.

J. N. Gillett of California, when hed visited recently this fair gem set in its semi-tropic surroundings. No words more fitting coul have been chosen in describing 1 Covina, the chief town of the far-famed San Gabriel Valley Every boulevard and driveway for miles in every direction is flanked with peerless groves, and the very atmosphere in the early springtime is laden With the perfume of the orange blossom aud the trees laden with the golden ripe fruit. Along these firm, oiled driveways, ornamental vegetation of the common and rarer sorts grows in profusion, and withal are the lovely homes set i« spacious grounds, where roses thrive in such varied richness that they appear voluptuous even amidst indescribable floral wealth. Sublimely eminent over the landscape that blesses the eye from Covina is the majestic peak of San Antonio and those of lesser altitude, but none the less beautiful, of the Sierra Madre range, with their SH.O-.V crowns shining and sparkling like jewels. Covina has no rival in L,os Angeles county for beauty of situation. Enhanced by the markings of civilization, its scenic loveliness, viewed in broad perspective, is hardly surpassed anywhere. There is little danger of incuring any tourist's resentment by advising- him to tarry at Covina for more than a casual glance about him. Many things he will treasure in memory arc to be seen in a nd about the pretty burg-. BIRDSEY15 VllflW OF COVINA ' To the homeseeker Covina extends a standing invitation. The right hand of hospitality is all ways extended to all worthy people to cast their lots with ours and enjoy the grandeur of mountain, the perpetual gladness of vernal life, fruiting and flowering- in perennial concert, an atmosphere blending- the azone of mountain tops with the tincture of the sea, the conveniences of civilization, and an opportunity of securing- handsome returns for their labors in the cultivation of our groves. Covina was incorporated as a city in 1901, and at once took rank as one of the best governed cities of California, which position it holds steadfastly. Our population is.estimated at 2500.

It is connected with Los Angeles and other points by the Southern Pacific railroad and the new line of the Pacific Electric, which fturnishes hourly service, with a running tim<&)»f 35 minutes, through many miles of the finest orange groves.

Our hlg-h-school certificates arc accepted in the leading- colleges and universities. East and West. Grammar school graduates accredited in the high schools of California and all other states. The people of Covina are, emphatically, church-goers, and each of the six different churches arc well attended. The Methodist Jind Baptist denominations are both building new edifices to accommodate their respective congregations, which had outgrown their present church buildings. No saloons exist in the city, and those who desire to raise families amid good social and moral environments find here an ideal community.
