Tho thrill 1 /ig 'Iratnii of tho sea enacted ofT tho New Kngland coast on Hatnnlay last, when the incoming emigrant Kf earner Florida rammed tho White Htar liner Republic, outward hound on a pleasure cruise to the Mediterranean ports, ivill long live in navni annals as the first, great, proof of the value: of wireless telegraphy in summoning prompt aid in eases of marine disasters, nearly "000 persons owing their lives in thifi case to the wireless system. The collision in this ease appears lo have been one of those unavoidable, aeeidents which all vessels (.raveling on the great, ocean highways are liable to meet with during heavy fogs. The olh'ccrs and crews of both vessels behaved after the accident, as seamen should. The Italian captain, having (jiiieted the panic, among his passengers, and finding that, his ship would keep afloat, caine to the assisl.a nee, of (lie crippled Republic, and aided in taking oil' her passengers. The passengers of I,lie li'epnldic, rousi d from their sleep by the shock, faced death with calmness and fortitude, like true Americans, the women proving themselves vciitalilo heroines. AH for I he liritinh crew of the liner, four little, words sullioe: ''They did their duty.'' lint if the palm be given to any, surely it must be to those half naked, begrimed men in the stoke hole, far down in the bowels of the giant liner, where in the semi-darkness of that, swaying, surging, Kinking hell, amid the fearful roar of escaping steam and with the murky water waist high, almost sweeping them off their feet as the doomed ship rolled on the long oc.ean swell, still did their duty until they had drawn the fires from the furnaces and thus prevented an explosion of tho boilers that would have hurled all hands into eternity. "Let others sing of those who fell On many H wtdl-foiighi. Hold, Of. those whoso . daring deedA were wrought With spear, and sword, ttnd shield, But here we tell of heroes 'bold, The bravest of the brave, Who fought for neither fame nor gold, But others' lives to nave." OOOO BASEBALL (JAflE. Covina Is Defeated by Riverside In t-leven Inning Contest. Riverside won the baseball garno last Sunday 5 to •!, but any man that did not gel two bits worth of thrills arid Ken«ation during the eleven inning matinee, has a decidedly blunted sense, of appreciation. ft was baseball every minute and not until the last, out was made in the eleventh, could either side fee] assured of victory. During the firsr. four innings only one man reached third base. KvoryHiing! was fielrle caught a bench at the beginning of this round, that won merited applause, fi! the fifth, things looked dangerous when Lippin- eiitt, of Riverside rapped out a tv/o- bagger, but as he remained on vecuiid Methodist services: At the Methodist Church the pastor, Rev. H. \V. White, M.A., will preach fit 11 on "The Church's Answer to the Nain dean, snappy style". King lion's Need." The Church choir foul back of the players' ,, r]f i cr the leadership of Prof. Groom will sing, "Uod ne Merciful," by DnnkH.

On Wednesday Covina was vi«itod by •i severe electrical fitorm which came from the northwest. Shortly after 12 o'clock noon heavy masses of clouds appeared over Mt. Wilson, moving rapidly toward Covina, accompanied by sharp crashes of thunder resembling the discharge of field gi'ns, accompanied by gusts of wind and rain which culminated in a heavy downpour of hail, the hnilntones being the si/.e of large peas, Covina seems to have been the center of the storm track, as no hail fell west of lower Aztisn school house and very little east of Grand avenue.

A hurried, startled cry in lln> dark; the rushing to and fro of Ihe watch-the sickening impact of one great ocean liner against another, and the surge of water inte the vessel's hear). What then is to be tin- fate of Hie rapidly filling ship? !t is the matter of the hour. And that hour was the great hour of the wireless telegraph operator nl board the wounded ship. Out over the tumbling waters he sent his messages, pleading fur speedy help, scut them from every point of his apparatus, ami a ship a thousand miles dis taut, ships a few hundred miles away, the mainland, and a vessel fortunately nearer at hand, caught the thrilling words. The nearest ship responded and arrived to lake the passengers safely from Ihe settling hulk. Thai is wireless telegraphy of today. A few years ago Maironi could not sell Mock in his company at ten ,-eiits the share. Wireless telegraph companies Were looked upon as exploiting harmless mechanical toys.

Montague leaned up ! against his first offering for a nice sin' gle through second, I'ing then placed | a ripping drive over the first baseman's head, pui'ing Monte on third, then King was safe on a slow one to Hhane, who failed to prevent. Monte from scoring. Libhy made a neat, sacrifice, scoring J'ing, and ended the run-getting for the time. Riverside came back strong in the next inning. An error, a two- bagger, and a pair of .single;; netted the visitors two runs, tying the score, but the, second half of the same inning put Covinu again in the lead. ffughe.H took one of the big child''s benders in the small of the back and went, to first, went to second on a. passed ball, stole third and was safe home by a costly juggle of Montague's grounder to shortstop. The final tie-up came in the eighth. Workman got, on by Stewarts overthrow lo first, was advanced to third, and came home after the catch of Cross' long fly to Montague in left. The ninth and tenth innings were classy. Everybody was on their tots. I'ing and .Shirley made too pretty one- handed assists at critical moments, though the latter hail it slipped lo him, that bunting the third strike was a bonchead play. Then came the fatal eleventh. I'ing eased np just a trifle. I'reslon by means of a, Texas leaguer reached first, f'ross hit, lo left, Hhirley relired Church by spearing a fast liner, McDonald wont out, Ping to Longheed. Then Lippincotl. put a beauty over second base, I'reston and Cross ((coring. With the score 5 to .'! tho enthusiastic crowd called for a, batting rally. Montague was up and reac.iict; first, by Wallace's error. Monte promptly stole second, was sacrificed to third by Ping, anrl home i-y King, making the. score 5 to 4.

Fat .Stewart came to the plate and everybody called for a two-bagger, but he did not got the opportunity to try. King took a daring clmnco at stealing third and wns out, ending the game. It was a warm contest and no one was disappointed. The team was up against tho fastest aggregation they have met this season and gave them a good hard rub. Captain Preston, of the visitors, displayed good judgment and by his timely hitting won the game. Shane had tiie better of the pitching end. Three hits were annexed oil' his delivery, while diet's slants were t (inched up nine times. The latter, however, walked but one man, against four passed by the Sherman brave.
