Alfred Fletcher, pastor of the Church of the Holy Trinity (Episcopal) was attended by a throng of friends and townspeople, who held the woman in tiio highest esteem. The church was filled to overflowing. Floral tributes, coming from friends who had known her in many towns of Southern California where she has assisted her husband in parish work, banked the front of the church, giving fragrant, beautiful testimony to an appreciation of Mrs. Fletcher's good works in this life. A vested choir of twenty voices rendered hymns which were favorites of the deceased, and whicji were bright with the promise of Eastertide and the resurrection, rather than funereal in selection. Bishop J. H. Johnson of the diocese of Los Angeles conducted the services, assisted by Dr. A. G. Trow, D. D., of Los Angeles. The bearers were past and present members of the vestry. The funeral cortege bore the body to Oakdale cemetery, where the rites of committing the body to the earth were carried out by Bishop Johnson and Dr .Trew. FLORA AIN8WORTH FOUL|ETTe.

Warner, Whltsel & Company Occupies Mammoth Store on Site of Humble Beginning. Seventeen years ago, E. P. Warner and his brother, Carl M. Warner, scraped togother a small stock of groceries and started business in Covinir. on what is now known as Citrus avo- mie. On Thursday of this wook Ilia firm of Warner, Whltsel & Company moved back on the old location— moved to tho spot occupied seventeen years ago.. But there Is quite a little difference in the size of the firm and the building the firm occupies. When Warner went into business he considered that, ton dollars In gross receipts for one day was doing well. The valley was very thinly settled. There were no railroads. It was hard work i-.o reach the people for delivery. The store was an extremely small one and transacted business from hand to mouth. This week the firm moved into a big building of their own after having worked up the largest grocery busl- iness in the upper San Gabriel valley. Fifteen hundred people passed through the store doors in the afternoon, people who came to inspect the Warner, Whltsel & Company store, and bo the guests of the.flrin for its opening, .No!"goods were feold' J pn this day, and the clerks busted themselves only wltk entertaining the people., Fruit punch was served continuously, while an orchestra dispensed music in the rear of the salesroom. The Blahop cracker company gave away hundreds of boxes of their delectable lit- crackers and demonstrated In ketchups and jellies. The HasH-liaruch wholesale grocery company of Lou Angeles sent a beautiful horncHho of vari-colored carnations as a goodwill tribute, and the store was othe wis>> decorated tastily. Mombc-rs of thf! linn assisted in entertaining tho crowds, with tholr wives also doing much to make the people of Covina and environs feel perfectly at homo. The Warner, Wliltsol Company now has one of the largest stores of Its kind in Southern California outsido 01' the large cities. An enormous stock has been secured to sl.arl off tho business In the now quarters. Many up-to-dat.o contrivances In this Hlore were shown to visitors, among which wan the patent automatic measuring machine- on the second floor, which weighs out sugar and other man-rial of u lllco king, and an electric elevator, running from the IxiHe- ment to the top of the building.
