Tho concert given by the Covina High School orchestra and baud under the excellent leadership of Prof. R. \V. Groom, at the Woman's Club House, last night, was a decided success, both in a financial and artistic way. The concert reflects much credit upon the High School and also upon Prof. Groom, who is to be congratulated upon bringing our musical organizations to so high a standard of efll- ciency. The club house, which was handsomely decorated with red and white streamers, ferns and potted plants, was well Tilled before the opening of the program, which was rendered in a brisk, pleasing manner. The members of the band presented a very neat appearance, wearing dark suits and having upon their coat lapels natty little cockades of red and white, the High School colors, which were also supplied to the orchestra. The program opened at 8:15 with the spirited march, "Greater Covina," composed for this occasion by Prof. Groom. This Inspiring selection was vigorously applauded and formed, a suitable opening to this very pleasing evening. "The Message," a trombone solo played by Walter Aschenbrenner, was impressively rendered, the orchestra playing an excellent accompaniment. Miss Josephine Stumpf's violin ( - • . • :. . . *, •. . '.

At. the Methodist Episcopal church the Mayor, E. H. Lahee, preceded the sermon by I ho pastor, Rev. H. W. White, with a brief address on his personal recollections of Lincoln as lie met him from time to time between the years 1SOS and 1S(M. In 1S5S he first saw Lincoln in his debate with Douglas. "On this occasion,' 1 said the speaker, "Lincoln rose from his seat as if In sections, until he stood towering above every ollu-r man on the platform, then taking bis overcoat, off, he turned to a friend will) the remark, 'Take my coal while 1 stone Steve,' and the thorough manner In which ho did the job is now a matter of history." At the Presbyterian church a special address to old veterans was delivered by the pastor, Rev. P. (!. Stevens, and speeches were made by Capl. N. D. Mussey, J. Ii. Raymond and ,1. S. Walton, who served during the entire war. At the Baptist church the pastor, Rev. S. W. (.luge, paid an eloquent tribute to Lincoln's character, as a man, a statesman, a patriot and a Christ in.

At the club house at <1 p. m. on Monday afternoon an enjoyable reception was tendered to the daughters of members of High School age, and some of their girl friends. The program was in the hands of the Misses Elliott, Heath, Devendorf, Douglass,- and Anna Reynolds, as hostesses. Miss Heath read an interesting paper on St. Valentine's Day, and other much appreciated items were the vocal §M4*HPW : A VICIOUS DOG. On Tuesday a stray thoroughbred 'brindled bulldog visited several of the ranch homes around Covina, including those of J. R. Elliott, Robert S. Walker and the Duller ranch, snapping at any- 'one he encountered. He finally reached the home of J. O. Houser on San Her nardino road and lay down on the front porch. Miss Mabel Houser, on coming out of the house and seeing the dog there a:tempted to caress him, when the brute sprang at her and caught her by the hand, tearing a piece of flesh from one finger. Mi. Houser promptly shot the dog. and then applied carbolic acid to hiu daughter's wounded finger, which was later treated by Ur. Reed arid no serious results are anticipated. Owners of dogs cannot be loo careful in look ing after their pets in ibib semi-tropical country, where Die e:ect of a bite is liable to be more .-• ! :oua i:han in <i colder r:liin;it". It would also be a-> well for Di'-in 'o i eiii'-mlio; thai own« :.s a.'e liab'i- to in' iie.!<">-<i in h'-a'. :• good orchestra' selections, • Wallace: Reed rendered" Lange's "Flower Song," upon the saxophone, in a very pleasing manner. Tho famous sextette from "Lucia," arranged by Prof. Groom was excellently played by Messrs. Walters, Leisure, Atwood, Walters, Asch- ehbronner and Ward. Each and all the selections given by the band were well rendered, but among the most pleasing might be mentioned "The Wayside Chapel" and "Sweet Remembrances." The program closed with "The Star Spangled Banner," and at the opening strains a beautiful United States flag was dropped from above the stage and hung fluttering beside the players while the audience, rising, stood at attention in silence till the last notes had ceased. This patriotic occurrence concluded one of (he best rendered and mosl enjoyed programs ever given in Covina. There will be no .school on Monday, Fob. 22, Washington's birthday. Dee- lighted!
