COVINA CHORAL UNION CONCERT Chorus of Thirty-five Local Voices Will Be Assisted by Best Outside Talent. Not until the soloists engaged In the choral concert were heard at Uie rehearsal on Monday evening of this week, did the thirty-five members of the Covina Choral Society realize the strength and beauty of the num. bers upon which this society has been drilling for the past five weeks. Th<$ rendition Hgatos with of the arias and ob- quartette and with chorus by Mrs. W. E. Wiseman of Long Beach was a revelation of what the concert is to be. Covina has never placed such high class choral work before the public at any previous time. The soprano solos in "As the Heart. Pants" are beautiful as any to be found in the many standard sacred cantatas, but with Mrs. Wiseman's in. trepretatlon they are thrilling. Mrs. Wiseman comes to Covina on Thursday evening of next week through the efforts of Mr. H. N. Wells, conductor and teacher of the choral society. Her exceptional soprano voice "during the drudgery" of' rehearsals, and the rredit of (he success must ho shared with him. No. 13,273. ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE WHY ORDER OF SALE OF REAL.

M. L. MEI-INERT. Street Superintendent of the City of Covina. 4-17 MRS, W. E. WISEMAN is the result of several years of study in Europe, during which time she studied with William Shakespeare, the famous musician who recently made Los Angeles a visit, and who was heralded In the press as one of the leading music teachers of the day. Mrs. Wiseman is also a vocal teacher, and has charge of the music in one of the largest churches in Long Beach. In speaking of a recent concert the Long Beach Tribune says: ^Onej^_tlje_hits of the evening was Se soprano solo by Mrs. Wiseman, The Magnetic Waltz Song." This, number was given a delightful rendition and showed the soloist to be the possessor of a soprano voice of rare power and sweetness. Her enunciation was perfect, her tones sweet and pure and powerful enough , to fill the auditorium withoutforcing." The Redlands Daily Facts also gives tribute to her in this manner: "Mrs. Wiseman was heard in an obligato with a double quartette. The selection was Mendelsshon's beautiful "Hear my Prayer," and it was given a most artistic and sympathetic rendition. Mrs. Wiseman's voice is remarkably true and steady and she sings with commendable ease, always with apparently plenty of tone in reserve." Mrs. Wiseman will take the leading soprano songs. Besides her solo work there will he the rendition of Mendelssohn's "I Waited For The Lord" for two sopranos and chorus. Nothing written for the soprano voice is more touchingly beautiful than this number. Miss Dodge of Pasa dena and Mrs. Jones of Alhambra will sing this duet, with obligato from the full chorus. Miss Dodge IB a soloist of the First Methodist Church of Pasadena and is making arrange, raents to go abroad this summer for several years of study. She has a thrilling, richly powerful soprano. Mrs. Jones, in taking the second in the duet, shows a sympathetic voice and careful training. These three ladies are the soloists of tho cantata. Miss Maude Thompson of Pasadena is so prano in the ladies' quartet. A mixed quartet will render the old and ae- Hghtful song, "The Lass with the Delicate Air," with Mrs. Wiseman singing the solo, and one of the numbers in the cantata is sung by Mrs. Wiseman with a male quartet. The pro. gram is both sacred and secular. Mr. Henry L. Marshall will render Mendelssohn's recitative from the "Kli- j&h, "Ye People Rend your Hearts." Because this concert is the first attempt, arid an introduction of this talent of Covina to the public, the prices for the evening have been made popular in order to rnak': the choral work known throughout the T'ppor San Gabriel V.illev.
