Old School House Passes.

A.B. Perkins, the new owner of the old school property has had men busy the past week or so, taking the building apart for reconstruction into three buildings. The two wings will be separated and made into modern bungalows, and the center will be made into a duplex. None of the trees will need to be disturbed, and when completed the property will make a very neat appearance.

[Brief.]

The old school house has been dismembered, and the three houses into which it is divided are rapidly being put into shape. They certainly make a fine improvement in the appearance of that part of town.

Another Sudden Death.

F.A. Luke, of Orange, a plumber employed on the Perkins-Reidel houses, dropped dead while at work, last Thursday afternoon. Apoplexy was given as the cause of death. Mr. Luke was sixty years of age, and was apparently in good health. The body was taken to Noble's undertaking parlors at San Fernando, and funeral arrangements conducted from Orange.

[Brief.]

A small tent house and the garage at the R.R. Reidel home were destroyed by fire Tuesday afternoon. The fire apparently originated in the tent house which was burning fiercely when the flames were noticed. Hard work on the part of helpers saved further spread of the flames, the direction of the wind keeping the house out of danger. Some stored goods, a camping outfit, and the personal belongings of A. Haig, who occupied the tent house, made up the loss, amounting in all to about $500.
