LueUa Roberts; DEATH OF WESLEY NIOO.' The sad death of Wesley Nigg, the eldest son of our esteemed fellow citizens, Mr. and Mrs. Nigg, Monday, has cast a gloom over the community. Wesley was a general favorite not only among his intimate friends and companions but among'all classes, on account of his high moral character and general urbanity of manner, and the greatest sympathy is felt with his bereaved parents in this time of deep nll'liction. The funeral, which took place on Wednesday morning in the M. K. church, was an impressive ceremony. The faculty and pupils of the Covina I'liion High School to tho number of one hundred and fifty assembled'to pay their last token of respect to his memory, and walked in procession from (.he residence! to the church. Six of his class- males followed bearing beanlifu! floral designs, and fifteen of the senior girl students all dressed in white each carrying a boquet of choice (lowers or designs, acted as honorary pallbearers. The service at; the church was conducted with great solemnity by rhe Ifev. Harry W. White, assisted by U'ev. Schafllo of Pico Heights, formerly pastor of the flerman Evangelical church of Santa Ana, of which Mr. and Mrs. Niggs were members. Prof. A. II. Collins paid an eloquent tribute. school work. In his studies he received the highest grades and he worked not only to get good marks, but to gain all the real value possible, from his .studies. In the social life of the school he took an active part. President of the Herman club, of the Juniors and of the Literary Society, basketball teach captain, yell leader, all of these positions ho filled faithfully and well, lie took a prominent part in this year Senior piny, in which his acting was very, nearly perfect. In athletics he was one of our best men. In baseball, football and basketball he was always working to gain more honor for Covina High. Wesley was ambitions. During the mini- mer vacations he worked constantly to get: money to aid him in securing a college education. Had he lived, he would have graduated with honor from Covina High in .Ii^ie. If every student of Covina. wonliif.- .take Wesley Nigg as his example aud emulate his hi^h ideals, pure life arid noble characler, we should have a higli school second to none in the characler of its pupils. When (ioil takes away from I he world a youth so noble, whose deeds might, have been of incalculable value In future hiimanil.y, had he reached maliir- Uy, it is not for us to wonder why. Some day we shall know. So let, us wait in patieneo and bear our sorrows in silence, for the plan of (jod is working out slowly but surely ami some day all will be clear to us which now is seen but, dim and vaguely.
