Tho regular July meeting of this prosperous and progressive club was a record breaker in point of attendance, there being over ninety people present. Tho club met at, the beautiful new home of'the president of tho club, Mr. Ben F, Thorpe, who took much pleasure in showing the many interesting features of his home to those present, and every one was profuse in remarks of admiration and approval. Mr. J. W. Mills, the speaker, was unable to be present, and tho club had an informal discussion on fumigation, led by Mr. S. A. Stowell, who handled the subject in an interesting aud instructive manner. "Good roads" came up for discussion, 5iud it was the unanimous sentiment of nil present that every one ought to work for tho passage of the bonds for constructing the magnificent system of highways proposed by the highways commission, aud the following resolution was passed: Resolved by the Coviua Valley Partners' Club, that we announce our hearty support to the good roads movement now in progress throughout our county and thnt we pledge its members for their active work in bringing out every vote possible in aid of the bonds iaan^at ,tbe. election, to be held on July 30th. Refreshments were served, after which the time was spent in inspecting the house and grounds. Several new members were enrolled, and many guests were present. The next meeting place will be announced later through the columns of the Argus. Bond Vote Canvassed. In accordance with law, tho trustees of the Covina Union High School met yesterday afternoon aud canvassed the vote of the bond election.

Death of Isaac Jewell, O.D. The death of the llev. Isaac Jewell, D.D., formerly pastor of the M. E. Church of this city, nt the (Hendnle Sanatorium on Saturday last, came as a surprise and a shook to his many friends here. Early in the year he was stricken with pneumonia at his charge in Colton and although bis life was despaired of at that time, he sufficiently recovered to give perrsonal attention to many of the details connected with the erection of tbo magnificent church now in of construction by the Methodists at Colton. Three weeks ago, Dr. Jewell, with his devoted wife, went to Huntington Bench to escape in his weakened condition the heat of the interior. .He suffered a relapse at Huutington Beach and sank rapidly. The funeral services, held from the First, M. E.Cbnroh, Los Angeles, on Wednesday, was a touching tribute to the life of a true and noble man, a man who intellectually was/ono of the strongest in the Southern California conference. On the platform were seated leaders of the church throughout Southern California, aud in tho audience men prominent in business circles 'of the county, all gathered to pay a last tribute to this man of God, taken as it were in his prime. The services were opened by prayer by Rev. A. W. Adkinson, D. D., followed by the reading of tbo lesson by the Rev. Mr. Mathers. Tbe obituary was read by the Rev. S. A. Thomson, D.D., presiding elder of the Pasadena district, who paid a glowing tribute' to the deceased's ability as a preacher, his industry and his Christian character. Andrew MoAllen of this city, sjpoke rv for the laity, and'In'an address'eloquent in its simplicity told of the man as we nil knew him, true to his snored calling, true to bis church and true as steel to his friends, who will always revere his memory. Rnv. Mc- Cleilun, pastor of the Presbyterian Church of Colton, spoke of the groat work the deceased had accomplished in that city and of the love and veneration in which ho was held by bis people and co-pasture. Rev. Robt. Fisher of Riverside told of the deceased's great faculty of making strong friendships, a stalwart, broad-minded man whose companionship men sought. The crowning eulogy wus the address of the Rev. John L. Pitner, presiding eldor of the San Diego district. Ho said: "At all times tho deceased was essentially a gentleman, a splendid husband, a scholarly soul, a master of the finest English, tlrm in diplomacy, a man talented with gifts far greater than the average ono of God's great men, for after carefully reviewing his past life and then gazing with sorrow at the remains in front of tho chancel rail, wo can render to him tho greatest tribute that any man can receive, 'There lies tho body of a good man.' " At 1 :UO a special funeral ear con veyed the remains, attended by the mourners, to PiiHidcna, where they were interred in Mountain View cemetery, tin; members cjf Pasadena Lodge, F.

He early felt the call of the ministry and began preparigg fcr hit* life w:,ik. In 1H70 ho joined the Wilmington (Delaware; conference and continued hit* ministerial work in that conference until 1HU4, when on account of the delicate health of his wife he by request was transferred to the South ern California conference, in which he continued until his death, serving the ohaiges of Perriti, Santa Ana, Fre.'ino, Han Bernardino, N, 1'unit- dena, Covinu and Colton, which latter charge he was serving at the time of his death.

The good roads cnmpnign is just a humming and prospects are decidedly rose colored for decent highways, and the man driving the sixty-horsepower machine won't have any bulge on tho man driving the two-horsepower load of lemons. Tho farmers would better get busy on this proposition if they want help from tho auto men, for the eigns of the times prognosticate the speedy onming ot the ah'flhin and it would tnko a pretty nervy politician to go before the people asking for roads in life aky.
