Tho following, Hipped from last, week's LOH AngoloH Graphic, \H so much t,n tho point that it gives the editor pleasure to reproduce it hero: SHOULD KKTUKN. There lire vory exoellent reasons why Mr. .JarrieH McL/aohlan should return to Congress, reasons so good that the personal ambitions of any man should not firovail against, them a.s long an Mr. Mcljaohlan desires to \ back. Mr, MoLaclihin occupies a much-coveted poHition on the rivers and harbors committee and IH in a position to obtain everything necessary for the furthor improvement of San Pedro harbor, tho one objo'it whi(;)i now lies nearest to tho heart of the people of this district. Those unfamiliar with the Hituatton in WuHliingtnii may not believe it, but a now Congressman has little chance to obtain recognition. Tho best positions IIH to committee work are absorbed by the oldest members, who aro bent able to attend to tho wants of their constituents. A new member in Congress is vory much of a small potato in a big hill, no matter how great his personal qualifications, hi'other words, he IIIIH to prove hirn- How Huch Can he Said In the Fewest Possible Hnjslish Words.

Here it is fur more eloquent than it; Knghind. These ever words should bo in plain sight, constantly before the oyes of our children ai»d ourselves. They should be eas? in a form as permanent, mid immortal as the principles they convey. It JH for this purpose a beautiful, coptier bronze tablet has been designed, 12xl«l-'2 inches. Tho directors of the public library aro desirous of placing one of these bronze, tablets, valued at £'!0, in the library with tho help of the Lincoln Hducational League which will contribute S'20 and a popular subscription. For example: If 200 people will contribute 10 cents each wo can secure the tablet. Hubucriptiotis received at the postofllce and the library. NO CHAN(iIO NHCKSSAKY. Therci is no necessity whatever for a change of Congressman, and were Mr. MoLaohlan desirous of retiring, it would be the height of folly to name an his successor any man unwilling to give JOHH than ten years of liin life to the service of Iho district. JOaaterh communities very well understand the necessity of 'keeping' *tho' Hii'me" CunRrrtBtimnti ifi harness, although this point never seems to have occurred to tho states of the Pacific Coast, with tho Ningle exception when Oregon returned Finger Horm'inn year after year, thereby obtaining the most influential position o!' any state of tho Pacific (.oast section of the country. (iood Roads and the Smaller Cities. Some voters ask ulmt, benefit tho proposed rook road system in the county will bo to tho small towns and cities. Just this: It will link all of them together, and with tho county seat, making transit from OIK; to another easy and a pleasure). It will increase their values, by making it an attractive drive from them to tho city, for those who wish to live in thorn and have to work in Los Angeles. It, will make thorn centers of interest I'm' autoist.s, who will run out for dinner, or to stay over night, bringing in money with every trip. It will show these rich autoists what, a charm our smaller cities have, and lead to heavy itiveslments for winter home purposes. It will draw tho country people into town for their purchasing, and make each town a niiirluiling center, fur shipping produce and for supplying the ranchers' wants. It will bring in tho country folks to school, church, lodge and social altaird, and every such visitor spends money. It will lessen tho cost of t nniHport ing bo twccn farm and town, and make living IOHS expensive. And it will cost only 10 oentH on the 91000 under present valuations, with thi.s cost as the valuations increase. Compulsory l-'umlgatlon. Commissioner (J. K. Homis of tho LOH Angeles county horticultural commission states he does not think ! it will bo necessary to advertise eorn- ! pulaory fumigation by notices in Co- ,virin, as has been done by the corn- i mission in other towns. All trees, shrubs and orchards in Covina having an infestation of scale muHt be fumigated this year, subject to the approval of tho commission. This I law is to be rigidly enforced, as it is found thiit only in this manner can the pests tie kept in a state of neutrality. In other towns the inspectors have posted the town liberally with noti cos, and cases where a refusal to fumigate has been met with, the work has been done by the county 'ind a bill hrought in by the officials to the owner for payment. In (ilondalo and Sierra Madro, two towns badly smitten by the red scale, tho county officials met with quite a little opposition, which was straightened out satisfactorily us tho residents came to know tho rigidity of the law. In Covina there are, like other towns, a number of private building lots upon which several citrus trees are growing, and'which are in n bad state of block sortie Infestation. Those, the commissioner says, are admirable brooding places for the posts, and tho accumulation spreads to the valuable groves. All such must be fumigato.l. A number of town lot owners have already communicated with Mr. Uernls about, this matter. Tho amount of red and purple scale in Covina is Insignificant, Commissioner liemi.s says, but the black scale is of course prevalent. The work of tho Hcutellista cyanea, or black scale parasite, has been much more satisfactory this year than last. This parasite has kept the poppers reasonably clean and is found In Mie county in largo numbers. Mr. L'cmis states that fumigation does not interfere with thi.s parasite, or impede or impair its work in any way. Installation of Officers.
