You who went to high school ten yearn ago If you don't believe that times have changed, take a glnnce at the periodical put out by the student body of Covina High School at the close of this term, glance through the Cardinal, and wonder at the strides that have been taken In H'.hool work. In the first place the book Is a decided triumph of the printer's art. as understood by the Argus Publishing Company. Clean linotype, free frohi error, and halftones of photographs that are Hear with features well brought out, arc some of the thlngH to be mentioned in the purely mechanical. Altogether Its appearance is handsome. The subject, matter IB brighter than It, ever was before. Arthur I'lxby's short story is a little gotn of ilH kind. Walter Asehenbrermer's talk on "World Power" IB Herfoun and ii.struetlve. The little quips and JcstH, little thrusts fit members of the student body find faculty are refreshing. The Cardinal during the coming year will be edited by Arthur P.ixby. The present, staff Is composed of Walter Aachonbrenner, edltor-in chief; Alice Atwood, associate editor; Albino Power, associate editor; Adah Waye, personals; Walter Hepner, athletics; Arthur Blxby, exchanges; Alyra Uurpoo, school news; Leslie Ship way, debating news; Waldo liornls, artist; Hoyt Leisure busl- m.-HB manager; Irven Reynolds, subscription agent. The retiring force, while spending heavily for the cur rent, number, leave the Cardinal In good financial condition for the coming year. Regarding Insurance. Austin Warner, a Covina Insurance writer, has received a communication copied from the underwriter's report M Kan Frandsco, In which it, states that, another mutual insurance company has gone to the wfi.ll, find that. Bill] another is in the field In California- soliciting 'business. Tlie article deals with the collapse of the Pacific Fire Insurance Company of Seattle. This concern was organized under tho laws of Washington, and after an existence of less than two years became unable to pay Its obligations, and a receiver was appointed. Under the lows of Washington, policy holders of n mutual company may be assessed for five times an annual premium to provide funds for conducting the company's business. Tho receiver of the defunct company haB called upon past and present policy holders to pay something like $75,000 to settle debts. The report goes on to say that another company,' the Northwestern Mutual, organl/.ed under tho laws, IB now attempting to do business in California, and It IB alleged that this company haB no license, to do business In this state. For Permanent Homes. O. W. Campbell has sold through I). W. MacDonald of tho Edwards &. Wlldey Realty Company, live acres of oranges on Citrus avenue below Rowland avenue, to (!. L. Armstrong of (•'Million!. The consideration Is $11,000. The property has a modern !»house, filled with gas and all up-to- dale appliances. Mr. Armstrong recently purchased 10 acres of orangcM IP the- new vicinity and wishes the additional live acres witli house to make his permanent home. D. W. MacDonald has also sold I lie seven and one-half acres known as the HaHt.iugH place on Rowland avenue, owned by .lames II. Hunt, lo A. Holly of Whlttier, who buys lo make a permanent, home. Five acres of tills nineh is planted to navels and the remainder to Valoncias. The consideration was $11,500. In this transaction was exchanged a residence in Whlttier valued at $3,000.

The Rev. 8lmon Turplo was. an quern spenkfr, but he seemed to hnvfl « list, of sermons which, when he once twgiiii, he went right through to the end and then started ut the first sermon again, rind so on. A young man Jti the congregation was about to leave for South Africa, hut the Sunday before he departed he attended the church service. In the course of hln lecture the minister nsed an Illustration In which were the words, "A man can easily Iwo sparrows for threepence." The young mnn. after being absent for n bout three years, returned and ngnln on the first opportunity attended divine sen Ice. SI range to say, he heard the same narrative by the Bfiino minister, tho phrase striking him most being about the "two sparrows for threepence." At the close of the service the minister. In bin courtesy, carni- and shook hnnds with the youth and, welcoming him back to hla home, asked him If he noticed any changes about the plfi.ce. The young man. evidently quite unconcerned, refilled, "Aye, man. there's two or three changes, but there's yln thing I can wee—the price o' sparrows Is aye «t the same auld figger."—Glas- gow News. New Use For' Wheel burrows, Mrs. Zella Nuttall. the archaeologist, was making some excavations In Mexico. The Indians were removing the earth some distance from the point of excavation In the customary manner— that Is, on n piece of coarse cloth tied between two poles, stretcher' fashion, carried by two Indians. Thla method Hi.'crned rather laborious to Mrs, Nut- tdll, so she ordered several Iron wheelbarrows from the city. When they arrived she turned them over to the foreman after explaining to him wlmt they were for and how to use them. Next dny when .she visited the work the Indians had discarded their primitive pnrUniclas iinrl were using the bright new wheelbarrows. As each bnrrow was filled with enrth It was picked up by Iwo Indians, one tnlng the handles and the other the wheel, and carried to the place where the erirlh was lo be deposited. All efforts to get the Indians to use the wheelbarrows properly fulled, and they kept on carrying them until the work was finished. Alphabet of the Playhouse. "We keep learning things all the time," said an Infrequent theater goer. "I stopped In front of a theater the other d(iy to buy a ticket of a speculator, and I asked him if be had a good single near the front. " 'Here's o«e In O,' he said, 'thirteenth row, third seat from the aisle.' "Now, you know, I don't carry the relative positions of the letters of the alphabet In my mind all the time. I have to work for a living and have other things to think of. But It struck me that O must be farther down the line than thirteen, and so 1 just counted up the letters on my finger tips, and I made O come fifteenth, and I said so to the ticket man, but that didn't worry him any.
