§A§Y AUTO MAKE8 FAST TIME. M. O. lUnchard Wint $100 Bet In ttace, Pomona to San Diego and Return. Examiner: Not for many months has the Pomona auto loving public been so keenly Interested in a speed event, as in the baby auto race from here to San Diego and return, which took place Friday. The $100 wagered 6n the result of the event has been bald to H. D. Blanchard, who in a single-cylinder Baby Reo, made the round trip run from here to San Diego in the remarkably fast time of 13 hours and 42 minutes, and defeated Al Charle in a single-cylinder Oldstno- bile, "Green Dragon." Blanchard started from the local Examiner office at 4:30 yesterday morning, thirty minutes later than his competitor, and reached the southern port, via the valley route, at 10:32 a.m. Notwithstanding the early start of the face, more than 300 enthusiastic persons gathered to witness the start and cheered the plucky racers as they started on their long irlp to the south- land. Blanchard made the run to San Diego and return with practically no trouble, arriving back in Pomona at 6:12 last night. Charle, in his "Green Dragon," returned to Pomono today, after having experienced one of the hardest trips he had ever taken. The Oldsmoblle met with an accident In the vicinity of Temecula, comprising a puncture and a broken steering gear and he was compelled to remain there over night. The Oldsmobile which was used by Charle is the first machine ever used in Pomona. Suggestive Questions on the Sunday School Lesson by Rev. Dr. Linscott for the International Newspaper Bible Study Club, also got saving faith, whether they profess to have tt or not, and whether they are members of the church or not, and whether or not they are even orthodox in their views? Have any, who attend church regularly and profess to be religious, but are harsh with the poor, g|ve nothing to charity, and care nothing for the needy, got .saving faith? Have those got saving faith who pray for the poor and needy, and for the sick and suffering, and yet do nothing to feed the poor or comfort the sick? Verses 19-20—Is there any moral merit In mere orthodoxy, or Is there any essential moral blame In mere heterodoxy? Granted a man with the spirit of Jesus, engaged In good works, what does he lose by being heterodox, and what doea he gain by being orthodox? Verses 21-26—When God told Abraham to leave his own country and to start for another that God would show him, was there any other way that he could have faith in God, but by If a nian helps the needy to supply actually starting on the journey? their own needs, Is that as well or What Is the meaning of "and Abra- better, than supplying the needs dir- ham believed God and It was Imputed May 30th, 1909. Believing and Doing—James ii: 14-26. Golden Text—Faith without works is dead, James 11:20. Verse 14—What does James mean here by 'faith?" Can a man have true faith, if he Is not filled with love for his fellows and doing all he can to help them? If a man 'say he hath faith," what is the test of whether he is telling the truth? Are there those today, who say, and probably think they have faith, but lacking loving hearts, and the fruits of love, are deceiving themselves? What is a Christian's proof to himself, that he Is not a deceived man in claiming to be in the favor of God? Verses 15-16—How do you class those who see people in need of food, and clothing, and do not do all they can to supply the need? Which person more nearly resembles Jesus, the one who talks very piously, and prays with the needs, but giving them no help, or the one who generously supplies the need without any religious pretentious? ect? Is it possible for a church to be doing full Christian service which is not helping the needy, either In its own, or some other community? Verses 17-18—Is it possible to show faith without works? Have all those who, with loving hearts, are engaged in good works, unto him for righteousness?" Love is an essential part of faith, and love implies action, or good works, hence is ft at all possible for a person to have faith who is not engaged In good works? Lesson for Sunday, Juno 6th, 1909. —The Power of the Tongue. James ill: 1-12. The girls' chorus, under the direction of Prof. R. W. Groom, is doing excellent work nowdays, and is rapidly becoming a very efficient body of singers. The people of Covina will have a chance to hear them before lfie end of the school year, and It is safe to say that they will be surprised at the great progress made by the girls in such a comparatively short time. The high school will adjourn for the summer vacation upon June 18th. Presently there will be much burning of the midnight oil, as the deadly exams are not for distant, and the mighty Seniors will have to take them in order to get their highly valued diplomas. The Lit'-rar" Society, winch has been dormant for some time, has been resuscitated and the members will give a program, the last one of the year, within the next two weeks. A horrible massacre of the gentle Seniors has just been averted by tho aforesaid parties yielding to the will of the lower classmen. It has been the custom in former years for tho Seniors to receive certain pins paid for by the lower classmen, as a sort of tribute to the overwhelming mentality of the former. These pins were labeled P. L. S., the label meaning Philomathean Literary Society, instead of "Poor Little Seniors," as was suggested by a Freshio. They (the pins) cost about. $1.75 each and the wherewithal to buy them has heretofore been extracted (painlessly?) from the lower classmen, and the pins given to the Seniors as a proof that they had participated in the programs given by the literary society during the year. Well, this year, the underclassmen suddenly developed a (It of peevishness beside which the peevishness of Harrimau toward Roosevelt would be as a mere nothing, and they refused point blank to buy pins for the mighty Seniors, and thereupon tlie Seniors threatened vengeance, to which the plebes retorted with threats of impromptu hair-cutting. They thereupon offered a compromise, but all in vain. The Seniors cogitated over this decision for a space of time, find finally concluded that discretion was the better part of valor, so they withdrew the clause from the constitution of the literary society, which said that forever and ;iy« suid underclassmen should pay for their pins, and they decided to pay for their osvn pins, so now all id quiet upon the Potomac.
