First Presbyterian Church of Covina Dedicated. The formal dedication of the First Presbyterian Church of this city on Sunday last was nu event in which the eutire community took pride. The building is by far tbe largest improvement cnrried on in Cuviua during tbe months of financial stringency, and more thuu thnt, H building in the erection of which the community would take pride at any time. There is no other church in tbp volley so ornate in architecture Bttd with such beautiful interior decorations. The seating capacity with the laree gallery also exceeds any. other house of worship in the valley. And lastly, tbe community is interested because of the influence that will be exerted by the work done within the walls. On Sunday it was open bouse all day. In the morning the sermon WHS delivered by the Rev. J. A. Stevpti- aon, D.D., a gifted and earnest divine. Music, as during all the services of the day, was furnished by a large chorus choir.

T .T, Cresswell, of Pomona, Rev. R. \V. Cleland, D. D., officiating during the dedicatory ceremonies. Sweet solos were rendered by Mrs. Whitehorn of Los Angeles, and Miss Gertrude HuJce of this city, the eer- vire closing by an organ postludo iu G by Miss Cora McKirahan.

Wishard, D.D., occupied tbe pulpit, and those wbo heard bim will not forget bis broad and liberal interpretations of tbe Great Truths.

It is the men who huvo hud long years of experience in Uio orange business that are today paying the highest prices for orchard property. The tenderfeet from the eastern states are at first startled lit the prices asked for orange groves, being skeptical as to the results being received by the growers, year iu and year out. The men wbo have made the. orange business in Southern California a study for years know that a well kept orchard will net handsome rcturiiH oven uu an investment of 82000 an acre, and they are always ready to pay the top notch for groves in favorable localities.

Chamber of Commerce Organized. The wide-awake citizens of Coviua are preparing for a campaign of "boosting." Coviua is growing as it 'never grew before, houses are springing up on every side, now fam- lies are arriving daily, now industries are being started, and a general air of prosperity is everywhere. Towns, like growing plants, should never be chocked, and our citr/ens feel that this is the timo to start a campaign of publicity which will rnako this section, v.;itb its opportunities, developed and undeveloped, kuown from the Pacific to tie Atlantic, The first step towards the desired result was a preliminary meeting bold on Wednesday evening to effect the orguui'/ation of a Covina Ohumbor of Commerce. Mr. (Jeorgo D. Mo- Laughlin, manager of tho Covina (Jan Company, a tireless "booster," was unanimously called to the chair, and W. M. Ciriflwold, cashier of the Kirst National Hank, \vas appointed secretary. The meeting was ummimouK in the opinion thai Hiich an organi'/.alion, having for Its aim the boosting of Covina, could accomplish much for the welfare of its citi/ens. uud a committee vsas named to the next meeting an outline of the work that the or^ani/al ion could profitably undertake, and alhn a few necessary by-laws tor dihcusnioii and i ildnul Jen. !

No man is better <|ualii!ud to hpeuk on such ;i iiiibject then Frank Wiggins, who as secretary of the Los Angeles (,'haiii her of Commerce, has done, so much to advertit-e Southern C a I i I o r n i a. Through hi-i efforts alotm thousands have been loe'ited in !.OH Angeleh county and millions of dollais have Nought investment. The meeting will be public and fully advertised when a ihfactoi y date can be arranged with Mr. Wig gins. Camp Rineon, that restful and delightful spot nnioiiR t,ho pinos, amid the grandeurs of the vSan Gabriel cau- you, will reopen for the season todny.
