The colonel was something of ft pigeon fancier nncl had so much confidence in n certain strain of homers he was making a hobby of that when his friend the major proposed a wager the colonel removed the limit. "We'll make it a suppuh," said the nmjor. "Yd" Mack boy will toto n painL ovah to the oynha an' ship them to'St. Louay, whaah they ah to be libahratcd ou ahrlval. I wagah they ah not back In two days, snh." The colonel accepted, ctnted his finest pair and included a note to the express ngeut with the charges. Meanwhile the major communed with Joe, the colored boy, and after the tendering of a certain half dollar and promises of Immunity from the consequences of the colonel's wrath later Joe agreed to clip the pigeons' wings sob rosa. Two days passed, and the major presented himself duly at the colonel's. The colonel eyed him with suspicious narrowness. "Hare they ahrlved?" asked the major gayly. "They hev. sah," said the colonel, with dignity; "they hev, but those two pidgins, sah, hev the so'est feet I evah eaw on a bird, sah."—Browning's Magazine. BE SURE YOU'RE RIGHT. Then Take a Long' Think and Mind Your Own Business. The other day a man traveling on a shore line train noticed, protruding from an overhead rack, a dress suit case which he recognized as belonging to n friend. Ho knew that his friend always got off at the station which they had just passed, and as he was not In the seat the conclusion was ID- evltablo that he had jumped off the train and forgotten It.. The man called the conductor and explained the case to him. After some discussion and a mild protest on the part of the conductor that it wasn't a part of his duty, the suit case was put off at the next station, with Instructions to send it back on the first train the other way. The man, feeling that he had done an able and friendly act, settled down for the rest of bis journey. But not for long. The face of hU friend, who had been in the smoker • and who happened on that particular .! aftgrnoon to be going on to New Lon' befj™T^5 te J*d a dinner party—loomed The moral of this Is, of course, quite evident Be sure you're right and then mind your own business.—Life. Overboard. "Overboard" Is engraved on a metal label fastened to many articles of paraphernalia seen, about the decks of a modern war vessel. It means that the article so marked should be thrown overboard whenever action with an enemy's ship becomes Imminent. Alcohol chests, turpentine tanks, paluts. spare spars, unnecessary hatches and other articles easily destroyed or splintered by shell flre are thus labeled. The president of Occident college, California, Is said to have given the word a new meaning In civil life when he xised It to Indicate those who aro untit, useless or Inapt in the struggle of life. It is a strong word and ns such can be appropriately app'ied to men and things which when a ship must f?o to battle are not necessary or mate-rial to the end desired.--Army and Navy Life.

Gillett of California, when lied visited recently this fair yem set in its semi-tropic surroundings. No wors more lifting could have been chosen in describing Covina, the chief town of the far-famed San Gabriel Valley Rvery boulevard anci driveway for miles in every direction is Hanked with peerless jjrovcs, and the very atmosphere in the early springtime is laden with the perfume of the orange blossom and tlio trees ladcti with the golden ripe fruit. Aloiijr these firm, oili-d driveways, ornamental vegetation of the common anr] rarer scrts grows in profusion, and withal are the lovely homes set in spacious grounds, where roses thrive in such varied richness that they appear voluptuous oven amidst indcscnbahlc 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 Madrc range, with their snow crowns shining and sparkling like jewels. Covina has no rival in Los Angeles county for beav.ty 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 are to be seen in and about the rvetty burg. BIRDSEYE VIEW 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 1 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. • Covina is located twenty-one miles eat»t of Los Angeles in the upper San Gabriel Valley. It i« connected with Los Angeles and other points by the Southern Pacific railroad and the new line of the Pacific Electric, which furnishes hourly service, with a running time of 35 minutes, through many miles of the finest orange groves. The public schools of Covina are the pride of the people and the buildings are constructed after the most approved modern plan. In all respects they are up-to-date. Our high-school certificates are 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 are well attended. The Methodist aud 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 ami moral environments find here an ideal community. Covina boasts of a beautiful Carnegie library, built is 190ii, which is largely patronized. An especial ic itu 1 co > • m - ^n <• the children's reading room.
