A Dissertation on t .a Weather—l.oobl
Pomona, May 23 —That "from time
immemorial" topic, the weather, has
been getting in. its work for tho past day
or so; in fact, it must be a kind of reflex
action from our neighboring town of
Ssnta Ana, which with its surrounding
valley, as we sse fro n the llbbald cor
responce from that place of yesterday,
was touched up with a Banta Ana—a
desert wind causing more or less damage.
Now, Pomona's only inconvenience from
this little blow through tbe Cajon pass,
along and over tbe country adjacent to
said course, is a day or two of warm
weather, sending the mercury up to say
92 degrees. Otherwiee she has been as
se-ene aa you please—no wind, no sand,
simply our delightful afternoon breezes,
with cool, plei-sunt nights.

IT IS GIVfIN AM AIBINO IN COURT
Mr. Yoakum Files an Amended Petition
Asking the Probate of Bis Wife's
Will — The Allegation*
Which Ha Makes.
The differences in the Yoakum family
will not down.
There will be another airing of their
troubles in tbe superior court.
It will arise from an amended petition
by George P. Yoakum for probate of
a certain will of his deceased wife, Mrs.
Emily R, Yoakum. The document sets I
forth some different circumstances than 1
those related in the contest proceedings j
recently decided in favor of the peti
tioner, although containing tbe old
charges of undue influence over bis wife
by D. W. Davis, Mand* Davis. Henriet
ta Davis and Dr. J. S. Hodge.
The amended petition alleges that
Mrs. Yoakum left an estate valued at
not more than $2500. She executed a
will February 12th, 1801. in which her
hußband was named as the executor, in
which be and Lizzie Bradley were
named aa the devisees.
The children of the deceased and the
petitionar are all of mature age. The
husband himself is 07 years old ; Georgo
E. Yoakum of Esgle Grove, lowa, 41
! years; Marion A, Yoakum, Pleasanton,
Kan., 37 years; Ada A. Preston, King
fisher, Oklahoma, 36 years; Ernest L.
Yoakum, Grenada, Kan., 32 years;
JessieT. Wade, Peonla, Colo., 30 years;
Frank A. Yoakum, Vernondrle, 22 years
Mr. Yoakum alleges that this will was
made by his wife as a part of a transac
tion by which she received from tbe !
petitioner property belonging to the j
estate, for which the will was made and
declared to be irrevocable. It was de
livered to M. T. Allen, who was to hold
it until after her tenth. Subsequently,
however, she obtained the will un
known to Mr. Alienor the petitioner,
and March 4, 1893, in violation of the
agreement, it v. as destroyed by S. V.
Lsndt at her request. It is alleged that
this was procured by the false repre
sentations ot tbe persons before men
tioned, who also induced ber to make
another will leaving her husband out of
its provisions entirely.
The former charges of his being pre
vented from seeing bis wife during her
last sickness are reiterated, and the
court is asked to admit the first will for
probate, and issue letters testamentary
to tbe petitioner.
