Two Prominent Covlna Rancher* Have Eaten Nothing For Over Two Week*. David Overholtzer and Perry Bashore, two of Covina's well known ranchers, have been undergoing a period of fasting for the benefit of health. Mr. Overholtzer has already been nineteen days without a morsel of food, and Mr. Bashore fifteen days. Drs. Reed and Jennings are attending the cases, there are many strange features to be observe^ in the process of such a cure as this one. The fasting la not. advocated by the physicians, but is allowed to go to a certain point. Nothing but pure water hna passed the lips of either man since they began the fast. David Overholtzer says that all craving for food left him on the sixth day, and that he will continue the fast until the natural craving comes back again. Perry Bashore was up In the main part of the town on the thirteenth day of his fast, and loaded his wagon with sacks of grain at the mill, feeling, he said, as strong as usual. Mr. Overholtzer drove his large touring car to Pasadena and back again on the seventeenth day of his fast and is still working about his place a part t of each day. When Mr. Bashore started In he weighed 207 pounds, He now weighs close to 180 pounds and is losing steadily. He was troubled with stomach disorders and skin affection. Overholtzer weighed 146 pounds on the beginning of his fast. He has dropped to 125 pounds. On the seventeenth day -he weighed 128. Bashore swathe thifteeotb - 4 1t!$V& potinda. Dr. Reed and Dr. are both studying the cases. The physlsians note that the tongues of the patients are heavily coated and there is a great deal of muscular waste. Military Ball Tonight. Major C. F.
