COVINA SPORT-HUNTERS SOME. GOING Newhall Had No Terrors.—Chesebros Send Greetings to Covina To our Covina friends: You missed a whole lot if you dldrt't see our start from Covtna Saturday evening, July 3. We did not go very far that night; just to foot of the Newhall grade. Say! that's a straight up and down proposition! We negotiated it all right, all right, and didn't have to switch from the low gear once. When we arrived at the top we hiked down to the bottom again and pushed a stalled Jackson up. All day Sunday, the glorious Fourth, we jogged along through mountains, sage brush, cactus, yucca palms, saw thousands of jackrabblts, tens of thousands of quail and myriads of doves, but account of game laws, we had to eat humble cotton-tall which we took at DeLano. Bakersfleld was hotter than Nebucadnezzar's (wonder if that Is spelled. right) seven times heated furnace, and they had the nerve to tell us it was the coolest Fourth on record. We noticed that Doc Reed would slip away at every chance, take something out of his pocket and gaze at it. Were we curious? You can bet. your boots, yes! Our curiosity was rewarded and has at last brought fearful punishment. It wasn't the picture of any of his lovely young lady patients but only of- a measly little kid, dressed In two flour sacks, with a string around the middle. Doc thinks that boy a beauty. You all know Doctor Reed, and I tell you confldentally, that little Jim is the moral image of his dad— and let it go at that. Then Frank Bisbee got to springing the picture of his little David on us. David Is really good looking. He favors his mother. At every meal, at sunrise and sunset, at all kinds of times and places, those two proud dads pass the pictures around to be admired. Charlie Griffiths has developed into a mighty hunter and has kept our table supplied with all the game we have had on the trip. He seems to have an affinity for cotton-tails. Last night, while gathering straw for his bed, he stepped right on one. You have seen his feet and weli know why we didn't bother to pick up the fra- gran£s^,..,Charlle has also developed '"as" a practical economist and nothing goes to waste. The only accident we have had was a broken spring and as near as we can figure, the machine was overloaded with leftovers that would afterwards have appeared as comebacks. Bill Ferry doesn't say much/ but I believe he is enjoying himself in his peculiar San Dlraas fashion. He has been acting as coffeeman and also as a drawer of water and he will persist in getting too much of the latter into the former. I don't think It is economy in his case—just common excitement at having had the honor of making coffee for this bunch thrust upon him. The San .Toaquin river Is out of its banks and it would do your hearts good to see so much fresh water. Stockton appears to be floating on a gigantic lake. We saw the state cap- Hal and wondered where all our hard- earned dough had disappeared. If you can get away, take a run up to Chico and see the Chesebros. Don't expect a hand-out though. They are not that kind of people. We did get an elegant wash there and had clean towels to use, and then Mrs. C. called that luncheon wan ready. She surely said "luncheon," hut oh me! oh my! beefsteak with lots of gravy, and summer squash and string beans and potatoes and each of ua had a great big •wedge of the thickest, juiciest apple pie that ever came down the pike. Luncheon, hump! A swell dinner I would call it. The Chesebros are just as nice as ever. Prosperity does not spoil them. You should see the flakes and nuggets of gold that represents last week's cleanup. If some of those Covina folks that had such an attack of cold feet cou^d see what we have seen they would drop dead with regret. The Chese- bros are aa much In love with Southern California as ever and one of the children said, after gazing at UB for a while, "My, but it is good to see folks from home." Mrs. Chesebro gave us multitudinous messages for myriads of friends in Covina. I can never remember them, so shall lump the whole lot and include Mr. C. at the same time in the form of a general greting to the people of Covina. The latter sends love too all the ladies; the former, to all the gentlemen. 1 may have this mixed but it was the way I understood them. \Ve an- having a glorious time.

Verses 1, 2—Is clinrch going a good habit, and,what do they lose who have not formed It? How many times a day Blioulil a person attend church? What is the value of a good liable, and how are good habits formed? Verse 3—Did Paul mean to say that it was necessary for the Jews to have put Jesus to death, and if not what did he mean? (The position taken by the present writer Is, that th-j Jews ought, to have accepted Jesus, and, that their putting him to death is the colossal crime of history, and the calamity of calamities that has befallen the Jews. That there are two distinct lines of contingent prophecy in the Old Testament, either one of which being fulfilled, would cancel the other; and that the prophecies concerning the perpetuation of the Jewish nation ;i;;.l tU- throne of David with unparalleled splendor, were can-; el led by the fulfillment of those concerning the rejection of Christ. God sent Jesus In good faith, and they voluntarily rejected him, when God's first and l«,-st plan was that they should accept Mm. God then proceeded to do through the death of Christ, that which would have been done more speedily by his life.)

Verses 4, fi How do you account for It that the same facts and reasoning which converts some only serves to harden others? How Is it that women are generally in the majority of Christ's converts? Why were the Jews moved with jealousy ? Can a jealous man, at the time, either be a true man or a correct r«u- Honor? How do you characterl/.e a person who Is jealous of another In doing goo'! works? Have we any modern e^amjdeofthe way these people acted? Verse (i—Is the world, today, upside down, or right side up? Is the world getting better or worse? Verse 7 When people oppose the work of God do they generally confine themselves to the truth In their objections, or do they confine themselves to the truth? j Do objectors to the truth knowingly i falsify or do they do It In blind Ignor- janse, or through prejudice? i Verses iO-12- Is there even any vlr- , tiic In exposing oi.'rseives to danger, when It is not necessary in the Inter| •„•«(-! of truth?
