Pitcher Miller had the jinks on Covina last Sunday when the Woodill- Hulse baseball team cleaned up the locals, by the score of 11 to 4. The second team tried conclusions with the same bunch later, but managed to finish on the short end of a 10 to 9 score. Hearst did the twirling for Covina, but was unable to put many puzzlers across for the Electrics. The eleven hits they found him for were well bunched, and with a few opportune errors, rolled up a big score. The locals were only able to gather the same five hits off Miller as in the Long Beach game, but after the third Inning, when the visitors had run up six tallies, there did not appear to be much In it for the locals. The second game was more exciting, and was featured by some long hitting. The poor base throwing of the home boys was responsible for their defeat, as Tracy held the city team down to three hits, while the "Mosquitoes" connected for ten safe ones. Shutt and Graf of Pomona were ' in Covina uniforms, and played great ball at catcher and second base. ; Tracy was the hitting sensation, j pounding out a triple and a double. | Graf alao got a triple and a single,! while Spider Middaugh alao came ' through for an extra base swat. j Some good fielding marked the play ; of both teams, but numerous errors j marred the contest. The mistakes of, the locals came at bad times and account for the Woodill-Hulse team winning by surh a score with only three hits. . The Knights of Pythias will hold a regular mr-eting in the new F.

Every person in California Is deep ly interested in all matters pci tain- ing to reclamation, Irrigation and forestry, consequently all are interested in the coming meeting of the Na tional Irrigation Congress, which Is to convene at Spokane, Washington, August 9. The primary objects of the Congress are to save the forests, store flood waters of the streams, reclaim deserts and makes homes on land now desolate, and at these meetings there the possibilities of the West in development along these lines. California is vitally interested In the work of this Congress, and every organization in the State, as well as individuals, should aid in having a good representation from California at the Spokane meeting. The meeting held in Sacramento two years ago was well attended and Its action was not only of interest but of renl practical value to the entire State. California, being the pioneer In Irrigation matteis, should take prominent part in all meetings of the Congress and especially in the coming one. While every commercial organization is entitled to representation at this Congress, there are individuals who are sufficiently interested to desire to attend as delegates and shotild any such desire to go they can secure credentials in proper form by applying to the California Promotion Committee, which organization is desirous of having a large delegation from the State, knowing that permanent benefit always comes from these gatherings; Commercial organizations are especially urged to send delegates to the coming session of the Congress, to take active part in the proceedings and obtain the knowledge that Is always disseminated by the men who have given their lives to the study of the problems which are discussed.
