NUNTINGTON CHEERFUL. Says Covtna Will he Connected With Portion* by Electric in Good Time. "When the property-owners are ready for the extension, we will begin the work." This Is the answer given by H. E. Huutlngton to the question dealing with the building of the road from Co- vitia to Pomona, and is the summary of a conversation had with the railroad magnate while he was visiting and inspecting property interests in Covina this week. Mr. Huntington, Sr., impresses one with a sturdy fact on meeting him—that he is possessed of the secret of eternal youth. The flght- er of the olden days of railroad making seems to be even younger In aspect than be appeared a few years ago, although many great railroad projects have been carried on his shoulders In the past ten years. Mr. Huntington was entertained at the Covina Country Club, of which he is a mem- her, and chatted pleasantly with old friends here during the day. Covina has always commanded a warm spot in the big man's heart, and it is safe to say that, whatever is right and fitting in the way of railroad expansion will be given to Covina by the chief of the Huntington interests. "I have made no serious mistakes in branching out with electric lines," Mr. Huntington said. "In many cases the country was ready for the lines before they were completed, but in every case the traffic has immediately •warranted the building of the lines. In this case of connecting Pomona •with Covina and Los Angeles, I am positive that the traffic will be all that is expected. The only" trouble now lies in the matter of right of way, and that matter can probably be adjusted." In the meantime the rumor that the Southern Pacific tracks from Covina to Pomona on the branch line are to be electricised, continues to grow. It is a fact that preparations are being made to run the principal portion of the Southern Pacific at night, including much of the fruit hauling, and sidings are to be installed at frequent intervals between Covina and Pomona for the purpose of sidetracking freight before passenger traffic. f Webb-Fouke. Mr. and Mrs. Carroll Webb are expected home today from the East. The former is one of the best known ~y<rau«-Hren of the city, and his arrival with his bride is pleasantly anticl- pated by his numerous friends here. A month ago he left for Sioux City, where the wedding was held at the home of the bride's parents. Following is from the society columns of the Sioux City News: One of the prettiest weddings of the present month was solemnized this afternoon at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. H. B. Fouke, Smith's Villa, when Miss Ethel Lucile Fouke and Mr. Carroll Webb were united in marriage. Fifty guests witnessed the double-ring service, which was read by Rev. Robert T. Chipperfield. The home was beautifully decorated with '.he wedding colors, green and white, sweet peas, carnations, ferns and smilax forming a fitting setting for the ceremony. Within the bay window, in the front parlor, a bower of the same flowers was arranged. Large bouquets were used throughout the rooms, and In the dining room a mound of sweet, peas and smilax upon a lace luncheon set graced the polished table. Mr. Harry Norris played an arrangement from Tannhauser while the guests gathered, and at the appointed hour began the wedding march as Miss Fouke and Mr. Webb entered the room, preceded by little Miss Anna Ashley, carrying the two wedding rings in a tiny basket of sweet peas. The bride wore a handsome gown of white Air-line, over white silk trimmed with Valenciennes lace, white roses and veil completing her •toilette. She carried an arm bouquet of sweet peas and her only adornment was the groom's gift, a pearl ring. "THE CASAU BURNER." Covina Rancher Has Perfected Distillate Heater That Interests Housekeepers. Here is a timely suggestion, sounding perhaps like an advertisement, but which is written in the interest of. general news. Before you stock up on fuel for the colder months to come, investigate the "Casad burner." Also, if your present method of cooking the dinner Is unsatisfactory, there is a chance that the Casad burner would do better work for you. This is a suggestion merely, and the reason for It will be found below. R. C. Caaad of Covina, a rancher owning sixteen acres near Irwindale, is the inventor of a distillate oil burner that he claims will do away with all necessity for gas and gasoline. All the objections to distillate burners which have gone before, are now done away with in his invention, and a practical demonstration of It, accorded the writer this week, seems to bear out the inventor's statement. Casad has been working for seven months in an attempt to perfect a system of burning distillate for house-heating and cooking purposes. He is nearly ready to place his burner on the market, and during the coming week will make the invention plain to every interested householder. Distillate oil, as many know, is the residue of coal oil, or crude oil, after the kerosene and gasoline have been extracted. It is the by-product of gas- olene, and ranges in value according to its "flashing point," or strength. Distillate is the cheapest kind of fuel on the Pacific coast, costing five cents the gallon for the cheapest grade, and from eight to ten cents for the No. 2 or engine distillate. This price is placed against that of gasolene at fifteen or twenty cents the gallon. If there is some method of using distillate for heating and cooking, wherein the smoke and soot and noise will be eliminated, it will be easily seen that the rancher and house-owner will be glad to take up with it. The trouble with distillate burning in the past has been (hat so much asphaltum was contained in its makeup, that it gave forth a large amount of smoke and much soot settled, clogging the burners. A short time ago Casad came into the possession of selling rights on a distillate burner, which he found was an unsatisfactory article on the market. He began experimenting with his own kitchen stove, studied the matter thoroughly, and during the past seven months has been perfecting his invention rapidly. Casad has had most of his castings made /at the Kellar-Thomason Company plant at Covina. The Inventor claims that the entire apparatus may be set up in anyone's kitchen stove for the cost of twenty-five dollars. This includes the fifty gallon tank for the oil outside, all piping and the burners. Caaad has arranged an overflow pipe running from his burner, which precludes the possibility of the oil feeding too fast and flooding the stove. All oil which might possibly feed into the burner and not be consumed into gas, is taken care of by this overflow pipe, which takes it back to a receptacle. Thus, a house-keeper could go away and leave the stove burning all day without danger of its getting into trouble. The burner, Mr. Casad says, is also so very simple, that there is nothing to get out of order, and it only takes about thirty rfeconds to givo it a thorough cleaning. Caaad sayu that his new burner is "all simplicity and fool proof," meaning that it can be operated by anyone without danger. He will open a place of demonstration in Covina the coming week and explain it to anyone; interested. Notice to Creditors. Estate of Charles LaBatt, deceased.
