To Be Our Pride. Two local organizations having to do with rrniHlt: recently ftpflfiftred In concert before ft pleased public fit f.h« Womans Club House. I-Hie notice was published r,< tho affair. Uut aa thp JnemberB of both Hoclel.le's, the f'ovlna Hchool orchestra, rind the Covina Choral Union, aro volunteers and ,'imatoui'H, giving timo and pains to undertakings which, If t.hoy succeed and In iiroportion to thoir HIICCCHH, will bring credit to the city and cult.nre and pleasure to Its people, ruslflorits of the city and vicinity may be glad to know what, aro the Hpeclnl aims of each organization arid what the prospect of HIICCOHH. The study and practice of the orchestra.-- speaking first, of the; first corner- is given particularly to instrumental music; its nlrn and hope Is to reach such an acquaintance with musical form and correct performance that Its members will bel.ter and more thoroughly understand and enjoy all kinds of music and musical performances. Being only young people of schoolable age, Its members will not have time to re'.ieh the perfection of a- dulls !n great and complete orchestras. But every little of knowledge helps appreciation. Ho that has learned to distinguish among the Instruments of a small orchestra the voices of violin, clarinet, cornet, etc,, and follow tho melodies they play In turn or all together, will come nearer to knowing •what is doing In a Tchalkowskl Hyrn- phony, or following the woavli g of the vocal parts in a Mendelssohn chorus. Meanwhile tho school orchestra wi)l give pleasure to Ha fi'le-nds by t,hg intelligence and spirit that may appear in Its occasional public performances. This In one of Its hopes. An. other Is the increase of Interest In school work as a whole. Kvory teacher of even moderate experience has observed that not the same subject of study seizes the comprehension of all scholars. With some It Is one study, with others another, that loads to the light. Often It Is music that scorns to open the doors to understanding both vivid and general. What are the chances of success for our school orchestra? With the present teacher continuing, I foci sure that It will not be surpassed by any of Its Imitators. I will not. catalogue my reasons, Prof, (iroom is not only a muslcan, but he has the faculty of obtaining the willing attention of liln band. When his corncltt played a duct recently, remember how, before it was time to bcK'n to play, both men threw their instruments into posit Ion. They were then both ready to begin playing on the Instant. I have ween many players only then brinin lo K''t ready to bc^in. Prof, (-room has taiiKht his men to net ready In season. That is a useful habit in life. I noticed that at the concert first spoken of the vv'uile orehi-i'.tra were always intent and ready. That is no Ki'eut part of musical performance, bill, it is an csHciilial driail without which there can be no K'">d performance. Prof, (iroom, I repeal, secures willing iittujitioii and ol<edicn<-c. Tluil insures I lie success of the school or chest ra. I don't know upon what fnotini; tin- orchestra stands in the scheme ol our school work.

This week'8 meeting of tho Monday Afternoon Club was In charge of Mrs. Gage, who arranged a most admirable program on current events. She herself gave some good selections on science, and was followed by Mrs. I. I. Cook, who spoke on politics; Miss Herron, on literature; Mrs. Stevens, religion; and Mrs. Grlswolrt, social economics. Next Monday afternoon at 2:30, there will be a demonstration by Miss Knapp on cooking for the sick. The hostesses will be Mines. .1. L. Matthews, I, I. Cook, Whltsel, and Clapp. The following week a picnic will be held at Fuddlngstone falls, near the residence of Miss Emma Hawks. Further notice of thia wll] be given next week. Tht) (iiK!.inotion which a school orchestra, Kuch as ours will be, and a Choral Union, such as ours should be, will bo not merely gratifying; It will be .1 pride to our people and a valuable asset. People seeking new homes, among other considerations, desire t.hotn where schools aro good and plenty, churches Influential, a library convenient and fresh, newspapers bright, and of moral purpose, clubs and societies and all the means of culture and moral and social Improvement abundant arid cherished. Among all groups or societies none counts for more good influence than a high class society for the culture of vocal music. We ought, to have such a one In Co- vlna. Its members who sing will have more to do In making good its musical name and fame. But usually others have gladly become auxiliary members and helpers In such societies as have lived. I hope Covina people, not singing members, will cooperate In this, as In all good and profitable undort.fikings. S. P. JBNNISOM. Charter Oak Orange Growers tn Ship Fruit Under their own Brands. Charter Oak has left off swaddling clothes. No longer Is the neighboring village to Covina to be known as a portion of tho country supplying oranges for Olendora shipments, At a mooting of the Charter Oak Association this week, at which a large proportion of the stock of the association was represented, it was voted •unanimously lo sever connection with the (llendora association and form an association shipping under the Charter Oak name. i ! The reason for this action came about. In the first place through a request coming from the Olondora association for a severance. Tho Glendora stockholders considered that they were not getting quite as much satisfaction from their own house as would be the case If the territory was limited Tho orange industry has grown to such proportions that the house In (ilendora could not successfully prorate the fruit from both houses, and there was some frlctloii arising from a statement Unit the Charter Oak house wan not putting up a satisfactory fruit. Tho directors of the Charter Oak Association were equally desirous of making the change, and for different reasons. As it was explained by Mr. Mowring. who presided over the mooting this week, It was thought by the Charter Oak directors that better success could be obtained by prorating the fruit independently. Tho scheme ivas tried during I ho past month and proved, entirely satisfactory. Carloads of fruit went into market and the reports showed oven bettei than they had in the past. The directors having taken il upon themselves to try ibis plan, it only remained for the members lo ratify it if they saw !it. which was done. The Charter Oak packin.n house will probably lie considerably extended and improved shortly, altiunu'.li nn dclinatc action has yet been taken It is ItnillKll! to build I lie present house onl lo the road, which \\ill be a very appreciable addition. The acreage in Charter Oak is constantly bein.n extended, and the proves are .urnwint.', larger and bearing more liea\ ily each \ear.
