"Standing room only" would fitly describe the conditions at the Methodist Church during the series of sermon-lectures being delivered by the pastor, Rev. Harry White. Mr. White treats the subject in a broad and comprehensive manner, taking in connection with the life of the Master the consideration of such topics as, "The Condition of the World at the time of the Advent of the Christ, and the Meaning for Christianity of the work of the Older Civilizations;" "Prevailing Conceptions of the Kingdom;" Jewish Sects and Parties, and the Theories for which They Stood. " The words of appreciation heard on all sides show how deeply the people are interested in tbase uimple and straightforward treatment of these large themes. Rev. W. 8. Myers at the Naomi Avenue Christian Church in Los An- yeles addressed a conference of workers at the Christian Church Thursday evening, looking to the coming revival. The evangelist, Rev. S. M. Martin, of Seattle, Wash., has held two revivals during tbe last two years with 50 additions in thf NaoiM Avenlie church. "A country, a which lives only attain its fullest powers." This was the keynote of the eloquent and impressive address given by Mr. Harper last Monday afternoon to a crowded audience composed principally of members of the above clubs. Mr. Harper had been requested to give suggestions as to plans for the beautifying of the city, which subject is occupying the minds of many of our prominent citizens. His first advice was with regard to San Bernardino boulevard, that in another generation it might, become a world-famed beauty spot. It should widened to i!5(J feet, with a parking ot 75 feet down tho center filled with nr tistic grouping of palms and other trop growth; a fifty-foot drive oacli side, leaving a parking of ST 1 /.- t'oet on each side in which ho would plant rubber trees which he conceded to be tho most, beautiful of nil evergreen shade trees. He said in part: "Von have a beautiful climate and beautiful groves Your churches arc better than tho average in small towns. Beyond a few pines and peppers yon have practically no trees. Do not plant eucalyptus, but do not cut down tho fine row south of town. Plant Stcrculia for narrow park- ings, Magnolia in the lower portions, Black Acacia, Acacia decurrens whore there is more room, Pepper, Camphor, .Tncaranda, Live Oak, Deodar, St. John's Bread or Carob. Of deciduous trees the European Sycamore, Tulip, California Maple, Umbrella, Spanish and Horse Chestnut. Palms "arc good around groves as they have no lateral roots to sap the soil. Phoenix Ganar- iensis is the most graceful. Ordinances should bo promulgated enforcing uni- forraity of kind and spacing, and protecting against the utility companies. No one should be allowed to plant or remove, a tree without permission." A PRETTY WEDDING. A very pretty wedding occurred on Thursday evening, in this city, which is of much interest to many in Covina and Salem, Ore., Miss Lotitia Breakey, for several years an assistant in tho Covina postofHcc, becoming the bride of Mr. Edwart C. Siewcrt. Tho wedding occurred at the now and beautiful home of the young couple, recently built by the groom on East Badillo street. The ceremonv was performed by the Rev. Harry "W. White, D. D., pastor of the First M. E. Church of this city. The bride and • groom, supported by tho bride's sister, Miss Mattie Broukey, as bridesmaid, and Prof. Karl Leebrick, as best man, on- lered tho prettily decorated parlor to the strains of Mendelssohn's Wedding March, played by Mrs. A. A. Siewert, the ring ceremony being used. The bride looked very young and :)rotty and was tastefully gowned in a beautiful creation of white net over white silk. In her hair twined a deli•ate wreath of orauge blossoms and she carried a magnificent shower bouquet )f white carnations and maidenhair ferns, flowers being her o-ily ornaments. As her going away costume she wore l wisteria colored' chid'on broadcloth, with white picture hat. The tall and stately bridesmaid was gownr d in a nessnlino silk of golden hue. After u wedding supper served by Mrs. ,). D. Moll'at the happy couple left iinid showers of rice for a trip to San Jiogo, and on ami after March 1st they will be at home to their friends at heir new home on Kast Madilln street. The bride, an orphan, win, lias made i ler home with her sister, Mrs. A. M. FVnco, is a lovclv girl and her ir.^ts if friends in i ovinn and \icinity unite n wishing her a happv ami pru'ipi'i-ous ife. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Siewert of Salem, Ore. He is a voung nan of .sterling qualities. At present e is head salesman in the <'ovina Fur- lituru Co. '.s establishment. ORANGE WEEK IN THE EAST. This srnsou the California Fruit Growers' Exchange are greatly extending the scientific system of advertising which they so successfully inaugurated in the East last season. The modus operand! is in this fashion. All the large centers of population will be divided into districts and a special train of fruit shipped to them at stated intervals. All fruit dealers in the district will be notified beforehand by circulars: "That all newspapers in your territory will carry hard- hitting inO-line ads telling the' people how good 'Sunkist' oranges ni">; how much better flavored the California seedless oranges are this season than ever before; how beneficial they are as an nrlieie of daily diet." Placards advertising "tfunkisl " oranges and "Sunkist" lemons will be distributed amongst them, and they will be urged to' innk« tempting ,IJ H . plays of oranges and loinons boMi in their windows and inside their stores, as nothing i.s more inviting than a nice display of ripe, perfect fruit. And no fruit is more tempting than oranges They are beautiful in'color, svmmelrical in form, and fragrant with the delightful odor of the groves of California's sun-kissed foothills. Largo hal'f-pa"o ads will also be used at intervals hoost- uig the sale of "Sunkist" oranges and directing purchasers to their local dealers. This opportunity of participating in a groat systematic, advertising scheme will bo eagerly welcomed by the retail dealers and the rivalry engendered among them in endeavoring to make tho best displays, will not only mako a Uirgo market for oranges and lemons but by adding tone to thmr H lores will attract a bettor class of trade and soil other goods as well, thus securing the BASEBALL SUNDAY. A good baseball game is scheduler for next Sunday afternoon, betwcei the Covina team and the Sunbright Babes of Los Angeles. The visiting team has an extremely good record winning -'2 out of lid games. The North Pasadena team, that gave the locals such a close rub a l'e\v weeks ago, wen beaten decisively by these speodv plav- ors; in fact, nearly all the good amateur teams around hire have been de f on ted by them. Manager ('overt is determined to givi tho public the best baseball possible, and no such team as last Sundnv's imposition will get, a look in, if lie seen them first. For the Hitnbrighl; Babes, iioroiiia and Potollo will occupy the main positions. C. K-tirly and'King will compose the battery for (.'ovina. Admis- 25 cents. BASEBALL FAROE. Last Sunday afternoon a farcical exhibition of I he great national game was given on the grounds south of town Manager Covert arranged for a game of baseball with a supposedly good loam from Los Angeles, but when (he Lyening Mows aggregation arrive,] on the field in (heir variegated costumes, and a like knowledge of baseball, the fans started to roar. Tho homo team was stunned for the time, and while they weren't, ' looking three runs wore (dipped' over. This is about all that happened, however, as tlm final score, 12 to •!, in favor of C,,. vina, indicates. • Tho features of the game were the spttballs by tho city team's e^-big league i box artist; (f) „„,[ ,,]„, * nouncodly poor playing of every one of' tho Covina boys. Tho details' were bettor forgotten.
