WATER Bl'PPLA', La Verne’s water supply is mainly from the San Dinuus oonyon, where the Ran Dimas Land and Water Uojnpany owns a water right of one^ hundred inches and furnislips the town. The town company has alrcdy bought one iiiile of six and five inch iron pii>e and one mile of twQ inch pijie for main coiidiiits, and vvill i)¡i>e water in front of every lot, Mr. L. II. Rixby, well known to all old I’asa-denians, has a six-inch free flowing artesian well on his farm adjoining La Verne oil tlie north, and the Run ,Jose Ranch i’ompany has tliiiie flowing wells of the same siV-e adjoiniiig the town on the southwc.st, where two more are in process of being bored, an<l another one had to be abandoned after going down 150 feet, on account of striking a flinty gi an-itc boulder at tliat depth. The flowing wella are 195 and 215 feet dW'p, yielding clei^ pure water, sliglitly wnrn^i, but] notalkulinc ormiiierul, as far as we could tell the taste. IlAILROAn FACILITIES.    , The Ranta Fe Railroad cvossoft the lo,wer end of the La Veriie Land I'ompa-n.v’s lands, and Grand avenue, 100 feet wide, is laid out and graded from the north line of the town site straigiit south through the busiucss center to the railroad tnu'k, but no station has bwn secured yet. However, Ronita avenue, 100 feet wide, starts at Ran Dimas statioiP and runs ea.stward to a junction with Grand Ave. Tliedistauce from station to hotel is about the same as at Monro via,or as from the Raymond station to Colorado street iu Pa-sidena. puiiLic scnooi-fi. The La A'erfio school lioiise is on Mr. Rixby’s land, adjoimng the village. Tliere are now fifty-three pupils in attendance, ■and twenty additional seats were ordered ’V the school board to-day. Mr. E. E. Rt. Clain', is the teacher.
