Coviua, the oontor of one of tho • most wonderful orange-growing sections in Southern California, has its unlimited supply of water, its direct connection with LOH Angeles by trolley and with the world by railroad, and has oomo Into greater prominence recently through the fact that tho record returns from oranges — moro than 8(5000 for the crop of two und one-half acres —was made by a rancher in that section.

( Our "aunties." realizing that they are in a beautiful minority, are hugging the deliiHlon that the petitioner worn utioonseloiiH of what they wore doing when they signed — and no they will plead with them, long and oarn- ertly, to convince them that there wart some little "concealment" In the which they did not fully memorize, arid that therefore, they wore "misled" and "Imposed upon," when they gave expression to their w»,neH. They a.»sumo that the 2.T5 to 240 signers are all from Missouri, and that they, the "aunties," are the fellows to properly show them. Perhaps the "aunties" will rff.-all a certain document which they circulated ]nn( AuguHt, against county division driving like mad, getting men out of bed at midnight, to prevent the county going to the demnltlon bowwows. Now, what w.'is the occasion for Ilils frantic know that there rush? Did they not was no authority, or precedent, In law or ethics, for such ;i. misleading move:? Did they not well know that such a move was premature? Was not their purpose to "tie up" thfs signer—to commit him to their tactics---to "throttle" freedom of action Had the question been discussed, or agitated, or argued? Had thf: average signer "-had the opportunity of studying the question, and Informing himself as to his choice? Had our "aunties" given the citizens a chance to hear both sides of the prop-fMlllon when they hastily signed their petition? What became of that document? Where Is It now? What did It, contain? Who signed it? And why the haste? Will our "aunties" now honestly admit, that they wore carrying a dark lantern-—that, they were "concealing" the lines that, their ways were "devious"--that they were then zlg/agglng—- that, they were deceiving "seven out of ten?" Thai paper was pigeon-holed -permitted to pass into "Innocuous desuetude," and will never be seen or heard of more. More than 100 men who were Induced lo sign (hat: "protest" have manfully admitted that, they signed It. under a misapprehension, and they now want the new county.

Different Kinds of Stores There are just as many different kinds of stores as there ar« individuals, for a store only reflects the man who directs it. Some stores are actuated by a desire to deal fairly and some by a determination to get money by fair means or foul. A man's position in life or his financial standing is no guarantee aa to his methods. Every city has stores of all kinds and Los Angeles, owing to its large transient and tourist trade has perhaps more than its share of the poorer kind. This is demonstrated by the fact that the Times carries more advertising than any paper in the United States. Its columns being open at all times to mining ventures, Fake medicos, Belgian hare bubbles, real estate and department' store advertising, the like of which is not known elsewhere under the sun. The good stoics who try to do the square thing so far as their large expense and red tape system permit, are represented by The Blackstonc Co., J. W. Robinson Co., Ville de Paris and Coulters. These stores try to do a legitimate business and their advertising usually does not carry any more misrepresentation than department managers feel is absolutely necessary to hold their own. The Suburban store, whose proprietor knows personally nearly all his customers, must be possessed of more than ordinary nerve to be able to look his friends in the eye and hold thm up or make even statements that savor of untruths, even though the most skilful shopper can have only a passing knowledge of goods. A pair of shoes sewed with cotton thread cost 15 cents less than sewed with silk. Yet the appearance is the same, A large firm who annually spend hundreds of thousands in advertising, sell a 26-inch outing at lOc, while a reliable firm sell a 29-inch at the same price. Yet hundreds of people never see the inside of a good store. We have sold for the past year a Feltone 11-4 Cotton Blanket at $2.00, which was featured in a big Broadway store last week, special $2.98. A big Broadway store pays $2 for its men's shoes to sell at $3.50. They pay $14.00 for their men's $30.00 suits, and $1.25 for a wool union suit they sell at $3.50. We sell the very same goods 35 per cent less. The best hosiery in Los Angeles is sold in a dry goods store, Blackstone's, and the poorest in a store that sells pies, and cakes, drugs, overcoats and nails. The latter firm depend on their big advertising and the known fact that they can fool the people. We haven't the nerve to pick the pockets of people we meet every day. We have tried to give every customer every p-eny coming to them. We have tried to cut out the goods that we knew to be unworthy, even though the prices were low. We know the cost of every article in the dry goods trade, and where it can be had best.. We know the selling price in every city in the country from Adams & Co., in Boston, to the cheapest joint on Main street, in Los Angeles, and quality for quality, we do not ask a cent more, and in many cases less than any firm anywhere.
