EXPERT REPAIR WORK Citrus Ave. Covina, Cal. {•••••••••••••••••MI PRACTICAL SCHOOLING. Covina Union High School to Afford This to Students Who Go No Higher. Professor Morgan, supervisor of the schools of Covina, believes that the CITY WILL CONTRACT. Petrolithic Street Work Will Probably Be Undertaken Under Vrooman Act. That .the city of Covina will proceed Immediately with the work of paving school of life is the line of breastworks j Center street, under the authority of to be taken. "Non echole sed vitae i the Vrooman act, was assured at the discimus," ("Not for school but for life we are learning") Is a motto which lie intends to put into practise In the arrangement of the curriculum of the Covina high school. And in his work we wish him well, knowing that he will succeed. The boy or girl graduating from the high sliool is confronted immediately by the world. A few continue in school study by entering the higher colleges, perfecting themselves for the diversified life designated as "professional," and which has a separate place, according to tradition, from that of the commercial world. In the opinion of Professor Morgan, those pupils who evince a desire to enter the higher professions, should be carefully prepared for them. Fwery effort of the teachers should be bent to the end that this pupil be advanced to the finishing institutions, or that particular institution of his or her choice. But the great bulk of high school students finish their education, so far as schools are concerned, when they receive their diploma from the high school. These pupils must be fitted for the world—to make them practical men' and women, ready and equipped to cope with the elementary things connected with, the world's hard School. .Therefore,: ito his opinion, the commercial course of the high school must be accentuated for all scholars. This will not interfere in any way with the exceptional scholar who wishes to perfect studies beyond the pale of the high school, and will graduate efficient men and women of business. It will make the commercial college a superfluous Institution. To teach konkkecp- ing, stenography and typewriting in such a manner as to fit a girl or boy for office work, is to place them immediately in touch with the business world. This is Professor Morgan's determination, which he will at once put into practise. He does not think that it should be necessary for a scholar to take up a six months' course in bookkeeping after leaving the high school. And he intends to graduate them at a high rate of efficiency in these studios, making, in the future, a diploma from the Covina Union high school equivalent to any diploma which may be issued by the host commercial schools of the United States. meeting of the city council' on Tuesday evening, and the pet.rolithic paving in all probability will bo employed. It. developed at this mooting that it is 1o be practically impossible for the property-owners on Center street to agree on the proposition, so that the work could be carried out. without the assistance of the city. Several times In the discussions in the matter, the arguments became heatod, and finally ended unsatisfactorily. Tlio word was jokingly bandied about that the "recall" would be placed in force to get rid of the present city council, owing to the dissatisfaction of a few property-owners. The council has given the matter a fair chance to resolve into something like activity on the part of the Center street people, and finding that this is out of the question, the work will he carried on under municipal contract. The petrollthlc street will be the first to be instiled In Covina. The petrolithic street has been found to be the most practicable of any methods used on the Pacific coast. The following bills were allowed: Lloyd G. Dessery, city engineer^ $35; A. M. Pence, $6.75; Covina City Water Company, $6.00; Mrs. I. I. Cook, for last payment on 'two lots to be used fumigating, $20.00; Som Cook, city work, $42; J. Braden, city work, $48; Frank Mentenhall, $6.75; M. L. Men- nert, for carload of oil, $245.05; M. L.

Wood, telegraph operator and Southern Pacific agent at t,h<; local depot, lias been fully exonerated from the charge of attempting to steal i watch on a Pacific Klectric car lately. The whole matter grew oul. of a mis- Sells Large Spanish Grant. S. Douglas of this place received word from his son Gordon, in Mexico, this week of a large land deal that he has just closod. Tho property sold Is an old Spanish grant of 70,000 acro.s, lying north of the city of Culiacan, In Slnaloa. The Menchacas, who have owned Bebelamo for generations, sold it, realizing that American capital was necessary to develop It to a high state of efficiency. Dr. Chapman of Los Angeles, the purchaser, Intends to colonize It, and will engage Mr. Douglas In his capacity as c.lvll engineer, to subdivide It. Much of the property is already under cult.lvat.Ion, and nearly the whole thing can be placed under Irrigation with little ox- pense, thus making it possible to raise three crops a year.
