Hut, perhapH, even greater losses are ovory nnannn »UH- talned b> the growers and HhlppcrH in deterioration of the stored fruit and the expensive methods of cooling, i Heretofore the question of cool Btor- age and obtaining the humidity required to successfully store lemons has been only partially solved—an Important question from the fad: that the crop necessitates storage for several months at, times, according to the prevailing market conditions. Near the coast the cool storage and humidity question is a comparatively simple one lo meet. Hut In the hot valleys of the Interior It Is as yet. unsolved. Various systems have been tried, with varying degrees of KIK:- COHfl. A recent Invention In building con Rtructlon made by Mr. Thormm Fellows of Lou Angeles gives promise of successfully Bolvlng the problem of a Beml-flreproof building at low cost, which will ensure, by Its peculiar fea- t$res of construction alone, without Ice or rofrJgeratlng machinery, an equable temperature and humidity as needed. These are provided for by simple inexpensive methods which any person of ordinary Intelligence can operate. Ono phase of this system which will particularly Inlorowt tho VaclferH Is that daytime ventilation IB nosniblo. The tariff question IH not the oulv Tiiv-omlnerit problem with which lemon r.ioworK and shippers are contending In Southern California, nor tho diseases of tho various kinds In tho g'-owlng stage. Tho latter are being studied carefully by state and government experts. Hut little concerted action has been taken to provide bol- ter storage and cooling conditions, <il- Uioiigh the need Is fell by every shipper. Alt'.

JOHIIH Hpokc of himself as the Way and F'aul npeaka of the followers' of JOBIIB and their belief as thin Way. It Is evident, al«o, from many refer- oncoH that the faithful used the term Way or Road when they spoke of the faith for which they were persecuted. The policy of governments and of rellgloun authorities, towards the Christian religion, was for many centuries after Christ one of repression, which policy made Impossible anything In the nature of a well organl/,- nd Christian church. As In the story of our Lord we find, like-the fac.os of friends In unexpected places, the names of obscure followers of the Master; so In all times there have been those who have quietly loved him and served him, and of whom he has never been a- Bhumod, although they may not be seen In public places proclaiming his name. For there are those to whom religion i« like a battle and who must continually rally 'round the (lag; and God has need of I hose and (heir service IH a large one (n (he world whern I hero in much to fight, for and lo light against. But. there are (.hose (o whom the presence of God is as the sweetness and secret ccstacy of n. lover's embrace - never to be mentioned even to closest friends. One need never to doubt the loyalty of these friends of Jesus—their service IH none thn loss acceptable in that. It Is unostentatious. Their faces and fine courtesy show that they have boon In high company, even though seldom seen within the walls of churches or engaged In public devotion. Do yon remember how Jesus sent his disciples to find a room to keep tho lant PaHHover? The good man of tho house, Nico- doinus, Joseph of Arlmnthon, Martha, Miiry .'ind LaxartiK did not need to follow tho Master through the three years of his public ministry to know him perhaps as none of the apostles over know him. The twelve wore his official cabinet, hut MIOHO were his private friends, and Jesus gave undying evidence of his deep regard for them. They walked In tho \\'ny of JestiH, yea, in tho Way with Jesus, for it happened) that he who traveloth this road, llndelh that JOKIIH himself draweth near and walked) with him.

Paraffine Paint Company Ball Players Make Best Showing Yet Against Covina. ("ovina, (',; Parafl?ne I'alrit Company, J. Lawt. Sunday's was the best game of the Fnterurbau leagtif; «»>rle« that has 1 een played on the Covina (.'rounds. It was the most Internstlni? becauf.'i the "daubers" made a better showing against, the Covina aggregation than any of the other teams so far. Not. that the other teams were weak; far from If. Each team has made every position as strong as it can be made by securing the best, men in the South outside of the big league clubs. P,nt with Miller pitching such ball ;IH was never seen here before and the balance of the team batting like fiends and fielding well, Covina has had it on the visitors all around. Crossiman, pitching for the Paint company, made a very strong opponent for Miller, and had iiis (earn been supported him better, the score would have been hold down. His slow benders not appreciated by the Covina three-base hitters. Of I he two runs scored against Covina. the first was due to Aguayo letting a long drive to left field go past him. Pete was running to head off a hot one and when about to pull It down, slightly stumbled and hit the bal with one hand, which did not atop it. This scored a man who had gained second base. Theother run was made In the eighth, when Wlthrow made a two-base hit to left and scored a runne: 1 . Covina scored four runs In the third Inning and two more In the elgth. Theie were several feature plays on th« part of the Covina players. Cheshire, the catcher, did some great, base stealing, getting around the bags In the manner that Aguayo does without taking such awful chances. Second was stolen twice by the runner going from first when Grossman threw to catch tho runner off the base, the first, baseman not daring to throw second on account of there being a man on third who would acore. Graf made a double play, unassisted, by snaring a low drive and putting the ball on tho runner going to second. The fans had a good laugh at the expense of one of the visitors, when Miller ran from his box and tagged him between second anti third. The runner was playing far off an* when Miller whirled nroimd he (the runner) waited for the ball to be thrown to one of the basemen so he could try for the opposite bag. Instead of doing this. Miller hold the ball and ran out and touched the runner himself. The score: PARAFFINK PAINT CO.

Byron Beaaley, long recognized as one of the very best actors In stock on the coast, will make his debut as leading man of the Burbank company this (Sunday) afternoon, returning to the stage which has been the scene of his endeavors for the past year, after a vacation of six weeks, but In a new capacity. The play for the week Is "Jack Straw," offered locally a few weeks ago at the Mason opera house by John Drew and his company. It never yet has been seen in stock and Mr. Beasley will be the second man in America to enact the same part. With him in the cast, in addition lo all the favorites of the Burbank organization, will appear Miss Maude Beatty and Mias Lillian Hayward, both well known to Los Angeles theater goers though neither has ever appeared on the Burbank stage. "Jack Straw" is written In the lightest corne.dy vein and is full of amusing situations and bright, epl- gramatic dialogue. Its satire is aimed at the snobbishness so prevalent in English society.
