Yon do not. have to call him a business .man- -JUKI a man, that is unite enough. We for the county division cause, e/:me from the plow, from the orange box, from the store, from the blacksmith shop, from the marts of trade, from the firesides, if you please; Just men, that Is all. Just men, not business men, not ranchers, not plowmen, not artisans; Just a great aggregation of men, who stand for a principal. You know that the greatest compliment that can he paid any-Individual, aside from the fact of his helng a man, IH to be called a part, of a great company of men called the common people. Oh, f l<;ve to think of common people; [ love to think of them from the aland point of the rallsplit.ter, and Win. McKlnley, and many others of the great, men of our day and our generation that have gone before us—men from the ranks. You know the man from the ranks is theman. who always rloes the business. Not the kind of man who publishes Ills face In the paper at, six hundred dollars per Issue, with his whiskers parted in the middle. Not. that sort of a man. Not. the men who desire to stand In the limelight, so that, the public can kok upon thorn, and gaze upon them and wonder about, them. Not that kind of a man. THK COUNTY OF POMONA Ho much for the personnel. Now, If you could go with me tonight from Han Diego to St. Augustine, and from the lakes to the gulf, from the lime clad lilllH of Xcw Kngland, hack to where the brooks of California roll down their sands of gold from the mountain tops, fro mthc fertile plains of Ohio and tho wnlden harvest fields of Indiana and Iowa, to the sliorea of Michigan, from the beautiful forest and Jake.s of Wisconsin and Minnesota, to the waving wheat fields of the Da kolas; and from the hot winds of Oklahoma to where Taeoma spreads her placid waters over the face of Pit- get sound—yon could not find in all this territory, a territory bo matchless as the territory to be found In Pomona county. Think of It, what a great territory this Is. Surrounded by beautiful orange groves and roses with their perfume being wafted out upon the evening breeze in summer tide, with all the pleasures and luxerles that can come to the man who desires the beat things of this life. You stand and look away over this beautiful territory, to the top of San Antonio, and there a million diadems are sparkling In the moonlight—in the county of Po- |mon'a.

COVl.XA AKiU'S, PKINTKKS * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * •* * l«sa than fifty performers and only two weeks' rehearsals, by dint of ({rent executive utility ami firm and tactful discipline, evolved micb a difficult and perfect performance. The first number was tbe "Flower Gavotte," bv the Misses Broadwell, Sherwoifd, Green, Delancey, Reetz, Cheney, Griffiths, Hazel aud Marvel Mann and Irnogene Arthur, a dainty dance well executed by the white- dressed and garlanded maidens. Quickly followed the "Old Woman in the Shoe," with her numerous progeny, Carrie and Polly Chilton Margery and Lewis Clarke, Gwennie Sherwood, Hazel Potter, Robert Broadweli, Imogene Arthur, Wesley Leighton, Adria Neil and Phyllis Bruujes, who sang and danced to the delight of all. Tbe part of the Old Woman was taken on short notice by Mrs. Clarke on account of the sickness of Miss Alice Atwood. Mrs. John Brunjes, looking very sweet in yellow organdie, sang "Carmena," aud was encored. The "Court Dance" of France, with dainty minuet steps, was well suited to the dames with Wattnau dresses, powdered hair and patches, who looked as if they had come straight down tbo ages from the court of Versailles in the days of Mine, de Pompadour. Those taking part were Mines. Ilazzard, Van Vliet, Pratber, Burpne, Clapp, Johnson. "Neath tbe Old Acorn Tree, Sweet Eatelle," was a solo by Miss Evelyn Fletcher, who sang ay sweetly as she looked. She was accompanied in both dancing and the refrain of her floug by a chorus of pretty girls with flower-decked wands forming an archway and other pretjty figures. Those in tbe chorus were the Misses Burpee, Bess and Marian Given, Crook, Aschenbrenuer, Waye and Leighton. The dance of the "Greek Ladies in Art and Sorrow," was a picturesque illustration of the classic poses of tho Amphion and was admirably rendered by tbe fo lowing ladies in robes of gold aud white with Psyche- banded bai' 1 : Mines. Crawford and Arthur'and the Misses Vic aud Byrd Reynolds, Kua B 1 ott and Horron. Tbe solos, "Sweetheart, Sigh No More," aud "Carissina," wore well chosen to suit Miss Fletcher's clear soprano voice and she shows evidence that hor vocal lessons are having good effect. The "Dance of the," by Mrs. Howland and the Misses Vincent, flail and Fletcher in dainty costumes and lorgnettes, was clever a"d funny. Tlie "Poland Driving Dance," by tho' Misses Adah Waye and Marian Given, in bright red military costumes with gauntlets and whips, created much enthusiasm. While "laying onto" imaginary horses vigorously, they never forgot to bo graceful. Tbo dunce of the six Irish colleens in becoming mid traditional green was ono of tho gems of the evening, and the difficult jig steps were splendidly done by tbo Misses Bess Given, Loigbton, Burpee, Aschon- brenner, Gertrude Elliott and Crook. Next followed the grand march, led by Prof. Speedy. It, ia wonderful how the small platform bold so many an in and out they turned in bewildering rnazo, quicker and quicker, ending in u grand twirl at tbo onil. . Germany was represented very laughably by the wooden shoe dance by Fr.iiiloins Anna Chilton, Leila li'Aiu, Brun.jcM and DougbiH. Messrs. Holland am! Marshall were realistic and laughable darkies, and their acting was us good as their singing, which is saying a good deal. The pt!i'fonn:iiiCt) wound up with the "Cowboy Keel," an excellent * I number well rendered by the Mjsses Hea Elliott, Byrd Keynobbi, Faiibb r and Josephine U idnoy, and Messrs. Clapp, Graham, Platt and Taylor. This WHS preceded by a pretty solo by Miss Wldney, "Colorado, " and ended with rovolver iih.ioting and tho un- tmiing ot the St;irs and Stripes. * * * * * * * •» * * * * * * Electric Motors tMOL'TM - cur'i jo Among the things Covina is fortunate in is a cheap electrical current.
