Young Covina People Wedded Two Months Gone and Announce Facts This Week. Four minds with but the single thought of marriage journeyed to San Francisco from Covina on March 20. Behind them they left unsuspecting parents and friends who thought that the happy events would occur sometime in the near future, but were not "In on the secret" of what was to come. The young people were Arthur Beardslee and Miss* Josephine Stumpf and George Covert and Miss Gail Leech, all well known and popular residents in this locality. While the two pairs of petitioners before the altar of Hymen were not "pooling their interests," so to speak, they confided in each other, and the solemn knots binding them in the holiest of bonds were tied in the city of the Golden Gate. The four parties concerned kept their secret well from March 20th until this week, when it was announced that they were ready to go to housekeeping. Congratulations have been pouring in upon them since that time. Mr. and, Mrs. Beardslee have left for a short honeymoon at Matllija hot springs in the north, and on their return will occupy a residence prepared | is on e of pleasing demureness and for them on the splendid orange grove taste, like some perfect instrument, which has been 1 Mi 1 .

Into the life of the business man, the professional drudge, and into the atmosphere of the workaday world, a fragrant flower waa thrown last night. The delicate favor came from the ladles of the State Normal School Glee Club, who were here at the behest of the Amphion Club, the annual affair when the community Is invited to share in some of the good things for which this organization is responsible. The Glee Club was secured through the efforts of Dr. Thorpe, chairman of the State Normal board of trustees. The Womans Club House filled with Amphion members and their guests from Glendora, Axusa, Irwindale and Covina, and the entertainment committee had made the hall attractive with fioral decorations and pepper boughs. President Nye of Glendora had charge of the program. The Glee Club is composed of twenty-five of the young ladies of the school, under the direction of Miss Jennie Hagan, principal of music. So delicately and beautifully has she trained the ladies in the finer gradations of choral singing, that the effect While it might be somewhat beside the fact, the general ensemble effect ther.
