Vawlng t'llnioti services tin- of Evangelist Rob- . ert LI Mbnes of Jamestown, N. Y., and Mr. Carl E. Burch of Boston, began last Sunday morning. The spacious auditorium of the Presbyterian was filled both morning and evening evening with people eager to hear tho message in word and song. It Is safe to say that Mr. Jones is unlike any evangelist who has ever visited Covina. He has expressed himself as rather averse to the old time methods of carrying on a revival and the morbid and claptrap methods sometimes employed by the traveling evangelist are eliminated. He doe*, not scare or scold people into making a decision for "the better life, and embnrrasing tests are never made. Church members are not permitted to do personal work during the time of service. "If people are not sufficiently anxious about the salvation of their neighbors and friends," said Mr. Jones, "to speak to them outside of a public meeting, . we wil not consent to have them made targets of when they atend these services." Mr. Jones has certainly commended > himself, to the men of the community by his common-sense, practical and fearless utterances. The music is a feature of the meetings and a large chorus choir occupy elevated seats on the platform. Places have been provided for about seventy persons. B. O. Kxcell's charming and cheerful hymn book is used, and the people sing with a will the new hymns. Mr. Burch has proved himself a proficient leader and all lovers of music should not fail to atend these services. Each even, ing Mr. Burch sings several solos; and he has already sung his way into the hearts of many of the people of Covina. He possesses a rich baritone voice especially adapted to religious music, and sings the old gospel hymns with distinction. The pastors will preach in their several churches Sunday morning and the Sunday-schools wil convene as usual. At 2:30 o'clock in the afternoon 'Evangelist Jones wil conduct a service Answer Prayer?" will be the subject Answer Prayer?" wil be the subject of his address, and. it promises to be a meeting of special interest. There will be another service in the evening and every night next week with the exception of Saturday. The rapid growth in the attendance, and the marked interest developed would indicate that those desiring to be accommodated with seats had better make it a point to come early, the entire seating capacity of the largest building in town being already taxed to its utmost. Monday Afternoon Club. Last Monday afternoon's was one of the most enjoyable meetings of the season of the Monday Afternon Club and the pleasant weather brought out a good attendance to hear Mrs. E. V. Rice of Azusa speak of her trip abroad. Mrs. Rice, with her husband, has lately returned from Europe, after spending six months of invaluable experience. Her talk was Informal and chatty, bringing everything vividly before her hearers, as she spoke of Italy, France, England and other countries. A vote of thanks was given to Mrs. Rice after her address. At the meeting next Monday the ladles will have the privilege of hearing an address by Dr. Emma J. Lucas of Los Angeles oiv "Personal Hygiene." Monday, April 19th, will be reciprocity day. Sells Same Place Every Year. The Geo. E. Covert Company has eold this week the ten-acre ranch located on the southwest corner of Dou. ble avenue and Baranca street, owned by Mr. Millard. It is a full- bearing grove, one.half Valencias and is improved with a new five-room cottage. Price paid, $11,000 cash, which does not include the croi». The purchaser is Jack Blair, a wealthy miner of San Bernardino. Covert has sold this grove just three times in three years, at a greatly increased price each time. Big Crowd Went to Chino and Saw the Beet-Pullers Beat the Covinaians. Covina, 3: Chino, 4. The heavy-hitting Covina baseball team slipped out of town last Sunday morning before any right-thinking citizen had arisen. They just fert the necessity of escaping the big glad-hand of thehome fans for once, and of annexing a bush goat when no one was looking. Well, their get-away was noticed and about fifty rooters went along, but that was alright, for after nine snappy innings the Covina boys led 3 to 1. Two men were out and it looked as though the best goat in the world could never get over such a fence; but the umpires were not counted in, and by their grace, stupidity or something else that we won't mention, the inning was prolonged to' accommodate a double and triple, with one man ahead. That just about did the business. The b r rft-twistcrs took kindly to Ping's delivery, but up to the flfth inning the five hits they' drew served only to add spice to the/ contest, for everyone played snappy*' errorless baseball. In the fifth frame- Montague dropped one and A fussed ball let the man home, scoring the only run until that fatal ninth. In the seventh the Chino's started witii a hit, but a classy double piny tro.n Stewart to Libby, stopped the excitement. In the eighth Tracy connected for an error, but Ping made Shepard take three good shoves at the wind, retiring the side. Tracy did some good twirling for his side. Hits were well bunched at times, but he managed to pullt hrough with little damage. The fourth inning looked like a slaughter however, when a pitcher can allow four ripping singles, and come out of it with only one run to the bad, he is doing well. Tho wobbles did not attack him until the eighth, when a pretty combination of hits and sacrifices netted two tallies. Ping was safe on an error, stole second, and Fat Stewart struck out. Montague got his hit at this point and romped down to the middle bag. Bab Fairly hit to left, scor. ing Ping, and Shirley sacrificed Montague home. Bab was caught at tho plate. Winslow's three bagger in the nlntn was the feature of the day. When Carson came through for a single, and Beck hit a screamer for two bags, it was really inpollte of Winslow at this moment to line one out for three bases but that is just what he did. The first two men up flew to left and short. Goode, after two strikes, knocked, the ball to Ping but was giv. en first, when he claimed to be hit by the pitcher. When Goode was at second he was caught napping off the bag, but was not seen by the umpire. Then the swatfest. Curtain, Hughes and Shirley did some excellent work. The former's three-bagger was a feature. Bab Fairly was another that made two singles. The score: COVINA AB R H SB PO Hughes, ss...... 4 0 2 0 2 Libby, lb 4 0 SEWING MACHINE. ROLLER BEARING.
