GAME FOR COVINA. Paraffin Paint Company Proves Easy for Local Team 9 to 4. Covina played too much baseball for the Paraffin Paint slingers, and daubed It all over them In last Sunday's baseball matfnee, by the score Of 9 to 4. Ping Fairly did the war dance around the pitcher's mound for the locals during seven Innings without giving the visitors a look In; but he loosened up a screw in the next round and allowed them the privilege of one run. Ferry and Haight took turns slamming them over for the painters, and were received heartily. Most of the men took a liking to Ferry, and by profuse slugging got away with four runs In thesecond. inning. One more dropped in the third and Stewart displayed his uncharitable disposition by starting the fifth with a two- bagger. Three scores came across in this round, and Ferry called for ttis blanket. Haight took his place, allowing but one run. For the last inning Magnate Covert stuck "Bush" Wicker in the box for a workout. Wicker started well •with a strikeout, and retired the next in an by Stewart's assist to Cap. Libby. The next two men up took lively pokes at the sphere, then a walk was allowed. Another hit brought the third man across, and Wicker took pains to fan the next man out. In the very first round a pretty double was pulled off. Rehor hit ^afe. ly, Lewis laid one onthe ground to Shirley, who threw to Stewart, to Libby. Montague's consistent fielding in left was about the only other feature that deserves mention. At no stage of thegame did the city men have a chance. Their ten swats were well scattered and the fielding of the locals was fast enough to make the result certain all the time. The score: COVINA.

Easter Sunday service at the Chnrch of the Holy Trinity (Episcopal) turned awny one hundred people who could not get into the crowded church. Extra seats were brought into the building were all taken nearly an- hour before the high celebration at 31 o'clock. The attendance was the largest In the history of this denomination. The musical portion of the service, lasting from 11 o'clock until 12:45, was exceptionally well and "Benedictus" were sung better than at any previous communion service, the choir of twenty-five voices interpreting these difficult numbers with good effect. The solo singers of the service were Mr, H. N. Wells, leader of the Choral < society. Mr. Henry L.> Marshall, MriC Jjilda Brunies arid Mips Evelyn Fletcher. Rev. Alfred Fletcher preached 'two sermons, morning and evening, relative to the resurection. About 150 partook of communion in the morning. The Easter music will not be repeated this year as has been the custom in the past. NOTICE. Application for License—Saloon. State of California, County of Los Angeles, ss. I, C. G.

Business Branching Out. lines of the Coviun Harness & Sad- that this firm Is prospering along with tho general prosperity of the community. This .ompany 1ms recently added since April 1st, a full llnp of buggies, heavy wngnns, plows and, orchard machinery, which is to be carted In ooiijiinrtlou wifh the blj; line of harness gods ami "thing's for the horse" which the company has always maintained. Au inspection oftlie store room ami sample rooms of the firm this week found the manager in full swing of getting his goods Into marketable ahape. The Dunlap buggy, niado In Flint, Michigan, Is oue of the prlncidal lines, and among the tools for farm work the Empire plow and Red Star heavy wagons play a prominent part. In buying machinery for the farm and harness from the local firms the rancher in this vicinity escapes the penalty of paying freight or express and the amount is not added in proportion to the price of the gooda, for the company is able to ship In wholesale lots. The rancher receives the tools set up and in perfect assembled condition for ready work, while the purchase of tools from a distance means that a whole day must be spent in assemblylng the parts, sometimes with poor success. The Covina Harness & Sadlery Company is able to give a little lower price on everything than can be obtained in Los Angeles, as the proposition of high rents does not affect the local firm. An inspection of the stock by the ranchers In this vicinity will undoubtedly meet with an approval on the part of the persons wishing to buy. Country Looks Well. The ranch of 100 acres belonging to W. S. Sawyer in Walnut Center ia worth driving a few miles to see these days. The barley hay Is standing almost shoulder high between hia orchard trees of walnuts, one of the finest crops of barley ever grown In this portion of the valley. The secret of the splendid crop is of course the fact that Sawyer's ranch lies in a very fertile belt, and is irrigated with plenty of water from the La Puente Cooperative Water Company. Other ranches in the Walnut Center country are looking especially well at this season of the year. The crops of alfalfa are looking well and are somewhat advanced for this season of the year. A good deal of building Is going on, several new and attractive houses having been built In the past few months, and new acreage is constantly being set towalnut trees, with an intermediate crop of alfalfa, corn or potatoes.
