Culvert of A/.UHR to a, coveted position on the Los Angeles Highway CornmlH- Blon Is a piece of good fortune not expected by the cltl/.ens of the Upper San Oabrlel Valley. Flad the people of this district worked /callously for recognition on this board, they could not have accomplished so much for themselves as will this unsolicited appointment. Calvert succeeds Charlea I). Daggatt. He lives at No. 543 San Oabrlel avenue, and has for some time been the manager of the A'/usm Ice and Cold Storage Company, which supplies Ice for the Santa Fo system. Mr. Calvert has always boon a public- spirited man, ready at all times to serve the county In any capacity, where good men are needed, and his practical knowledge of the needs of the county of Intelligent road supervision, will iiuilce him a most valuable mnn. At thin time; .when millions of dollars »r to bo expended upon county roads, Culvert's position will b« of importance, lie has always nliown !> warm interest in Covlna. and its growth, and 1ms made many close friends in this district. The Argua joins In wishing him successs in his new responsibility. REALTY MEN INVOLVED. Members of Old Firm of Pollard A Fairly Fail to Agree on Accounting.

U. C.

This, he says, Fairly failed to do. MIDSUMMER EVENSONG. Good Talent Arranged Into Program For Sunday Evening at Episcopal Church.

Accord- Ing to Small Eyes' story, It did not appear that the bull hnd lost one of Its hind legs, but rather that It never had had more than one. The hind leg was very btrge, seemed to be In the middle of the bcdy Instead of nt one side, and there wan no sign of any missing leg. It looked as If the two hind legs which the buffalo ordinarily has had In some wny fused together. The war party with which Small Eyes was traveling was passing along near a hollow when the bull came up out of It, nnd some of the men ran ahead, got around It and shot It with « gun. It was not able to run fast, but rather hobbled along.—Forest and Stream. Saved by a Photograph. A very remarkable Incident occurred at Rio de Janeiro. A passenger on board one of the large liners took a photograph of the harbor. It included u small yacht which had sailed lu the morning with twa men In her, but returned In the evening with one only. The survivor Bald bis companion had fallen overboard, but bis statement was not believed. He was tried and sentenced to death. The matter 'had by this time com* to the ears ot the photographer, Who remembered that the picture had been taken on the day of the "crime" (or accident) and that the scene embraced a yacht. On examining the print more carefully he noticed a small •peck on the sail and in order to determine what It was had an enlargement made. It proved to be the figure of a man falling. It was shown to the authorities at once, and the condemned ma« was released. Dropsical Oysters. With u suoer the oyster opener pointed to a brownish smear upon u Saddle UeeU shell.

(Continued from first page) As the business Increases, Manager White states that there will necessarily be cheaper gas made, as it Is not possible at the present time for a comparatively small company to make gas as cheaply as it is made in Los Angeles. The price per one thousand feet will remain at $1.50 for the time being. A certain number of connection!! from the mains to private property will be made free by the company as an inducement to an increase of business, but this offer will hold good only for a short time. All collections will be made through the First National Banks at Azusa, Covina arid Olendora. Branch offices are now installed In Azusa and Glendora, and the company has two carloads of gas stoves and ranges on exhibition In Azusa. Manager White says that there is r.o f danger of the price increasing, but that rather It will decrease In price as business increases, although the price of oil, from which the gas is made, Is constantly Increasing. With the efficient management and backing wjilch the new company has under the present conditions, there will be no danger of making such mistakes as were met with In the past, and the patrons, it is claimed, will receive the very best service obtainable. Manager White will from this time on make his nome in Covina. An Answer to Mr. Wells. Christian Science Committee on Publication, Los Angeles. July 6. 1909. L'dltor Covlna Argus, Covina, Cal. Dear Sir: In your issue of June 26, Mr. .H. N. Wells attempts to show that he understands Christian Science better than do Christian Scientists themselves. In so doing, he gives ample evidence that he is dealing not with Christian Science, but a misconception of its teachings. To begin with, our critic complains that the different editions of "Science and Health," the text book of Christian Science, are not alike. If our critic understood the teaching of this book he would know that Its principle has never changed. In some instances explanations have been amplified with a view to aiding the student. Teachers of all sciences are striving to make the facts they are teaching clearer, though the facts themselves never change. The various interpretations and revisions of the Scriptures are in accord with this idea. Those who are competent to Judge know that the fundamentals of Christian Science are the same in the present edition as they were In the first. Our critic seems to find fault with the Christian Science teaching concerning matter, and yet many eminent physical scientists agree that what is termed "matter" Is really, in the last analysis, u manifestation of mind. Christian Science does not teach that there is no body, trees, flowers, nor universe, but. maintains that these are not material as they seem to be to the material senses. In connection with the statement, "there Is no matter," Christian Science also affirms, "All is infinite mind and infinite manifestation," and this is in strict accord with tho account of creation as given in (!en. 1-.'!!, "And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good." Aside from our critic's censure of what, lie thinks Christian Science teaches, he certainly evinces a comprehensive gnu-p upon the failure of modern religion to follow Christ in a practical way. Indeed, If our critic will devote himself to gaining an understanding of Christian Science, he will find the fulfillment of those things he so clearly recognizes as necessary for the practical salvation of mankind. Our critic will find that Christian Science agrees with the Idea that the spiritual interpretation of the Scripture is tho all-Important one; he will find that Christian Science most emphatically endorses the admonition "Believe 1 on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt bo saved." Ho will also find that to "Boliovo on the Lord Jesus Christ" includes obedience to all bis commands and that the Christian must, in addition to preaching the nospol. heal the sick the signs which Jesus said would follow true belief. "He iliat believoth oa me. the works that I do. shall he do also." This Is' the lest established by tho Master,! "Ye shall know them by their fruits"' Physical healing is not the only: fruit of Christian Science. This i.s (lily the external ctidcmo that the: inner iil'e is beini; renewed after the "Pattern showed ll'ee uli the Mount.'' Christian Science cannot heal anyone without impro\inu him spiritually as well as physically, and uhint; the pa-' tier,! a beiter uiiilerstandini! of Go-.l ;;i'.cl Li.; !a\\r. and an ability to obey. them.
