When gentle springtime fills the air With oders sweet trom flowers rare, What perfume most of all "gets there?" Spring onions! What oder more than any other Stioketh closer than auy brother? Beats the love of any mother? Spring onions! When in the crowded church at prayer You kneel beside some brother there, What makes you wish for purer air? Spring onions! When one makes love to some sweet miss, What is it robs it of its bliss What spoils the flavor of the kiss Spring onions! If we would of its terrors cheat Each oniou breath with which we meet, We all must buckle to and eat Spring onions! I •—Malcolm J. McCarthy. Covina, Cal. When it's hot just remember what a fine time you would be having if you were at Catalina, or San Diego, and then figure out how much you are saving by staying at home. And when you've got it all figured out don't come around and tell us you're satisfied because you .are not, and all money saved this way is blood money, and it won't do you any good. "I haven't had a vacation in fifteen years," says the man whose nose is always to the grindstone, proudly, and be really thinks be has done something of which to boast. Go and vaoationize somewhere and make all the more money for it when you ooine back. * The remark was made at the polls on Monday that the Covina voter has become so proud that he won't vote unless someone comes after him in an automobile. But this is hardly the case, although it is nice to have the chug wagons tote you around on election day, and it gives you a feeling of importance. But it is a fact ihat many a man forgets his civic duty when the water is running on his ranch, or the weeds have got the start of biro. The Senator-ship. California's old jerk-line leader in politics, the San Francisco Argonaut, has n splendid summary t>f the Senatorial situation in this week's issue. .It rends: The Argonaut would like to see the Pacific States represented in the Senate of the United States by men of the very highest and broadest capability. It would liko to see a group of Websters, Clays, and Blaines commanding by their talent the admiration and approval of the country and in reasonable and worthy ways dominating legislation. Particularly, the Argonaut would like to see California magnificently represented in the Senate; we would like it if we bad in the Senate a supreme man capable of declaring the voice of the Pacific West not only with respect to our immediate affairs, but in relation to those vast interests which are arising in the new world of the Pacific Ocean. If anybody can point to an available man, competent by his character and his talents, by the possession of public confidence and by the eagerness of his individual force, to meet these requirements, the Argonaut will gladly give Him such support as it may, without respect to the color of his hair or to its own private likes or dislikes. Nnuie the man big enough and we will venture so far as to pledge him a very active and earnest support. Very frankly let us say that wfl know of no such man. Nor have we beard of anybody else who knows such a man. Those who are opposing the reelection of Senator Perkins do so upon purely negative and personal grounds. They don't like Perkins for some reason or for no reason; and, therefore, they object to him. They wish to substitute for him not so much a superior man as some other man. The weakness of their position when they are is instantly manifest asked to name some- There have been a few changes in the general aspect of Covina's streets during the summer, and the Scribbler cannot say that the change has been fur the immediate betterment of the community. Why not plant eome trees and quit digging out so man\ ? The old Scotchman was wont to say to his son : "Put in a tree now and tbou Jook.- 'Twill be growing while you're sleeping." What would yon do if you bought a dog to keep the coyotes out of your chicken roost, and the coyotes should chase Uie dog up to your front porch and through a 'front window, sash and all, as one enterprising rancher in this locality says they did lately? The only thing possible would be to bring tho chickens into the house nighin, and dig n cyclone collar for the dog. And now ttit;re is considerable talk of putting the siiicllint,' salts to the Covina Hoard of Trade. Why not IIHVH a live one here? The business men have got to got behind it however, and treat it H.H if it were a part of their own business. A board of trade \vhicli sloops is a damage. By all means lets have a bniird of trade, ami a j^nud one. The cover to n head-^Hte which is situated in the middle of a sidewalk, was left ojie.M l;y someone the oMitr niiMit, and an out -of-to'in man nearly l)|-(ike his neck. It would he well for the city to watch out tor the damage suit. 1 -, which mi^ht couie our useful man in the Senate. Flo stands well not only with this administration, but with that which is to come, and his capacity for the accomplishment of general legislative purposes is large. We are about to enter upon a now administrative deal at Washington. Among other things, the tariff is to be revised. The material interests of California are largely bound up in the tariff scheme. Would it be wise from any point of view in such a crisis to turn out an experienced and faithful man thoroughly acquainted with his work and so placed as to be of vast service to the State, and to substitute for him a MOW man without senatorial experience), and therefore without special prestige or influence in relation to senatorial duties? The Argonaut thinks not. It thinks we would make a tremendous practical mistake at this time to retire Mr. Perkins and to send in his place another man who could not possibly hope for.years to come to command the position now held by Mr. Perkins. It is, of course, possible that there are men among us whose talents are great enough to offset Mr. Perkins's many and manifest advantages. But there is nobody of this type \u sight.

H. .\ all I:, body in Mr. Perkins's places Pardee, a week creature of essentially feminine mind; Snreckels, an ignoramus known alike for • his stupidity and bis arrogance and commended only by bis money; Motoalf, an excellent man with no qualifications superior to those of Mr. Perkins—these are tbe names we most commonly bear. What could possibly be gained for California by tbe substitution of any of these for our present senior senator? From any rational standpoint, Pardee and Spreokels are unthinkable. The election of either, if it were possible—which, praise bo to God, it is not—would simply be to put vanity, insufficiency, and inexperience in the place of expert and proved working capacity. Mr. Mot- calf, a man of distinctly better type, likewise a man of wide acquaintance at Washington, would come to senatorial duties as a new man with inside senatorial relations to be established. It would take him ten years at least to get himself so adjusted as to equal the position in which Mr. Perkins stands by virtue of long service arid thorough acquaintance in combination with industry and excellent working abilities. In sending Mr.Metcalf to tho Senate we would not get tho supreme giftH above referred to; we would not give to tho Fact Ho Coast or to California a stronger personality or a larger video than she has today. We would simply bo substituting one excellent and highly respectable man for another. It would be a change without, rea son or justification iu high motives or in any motive excepting those which rest upon mere personality. And, speaking for itself, the Argonaut has no respect at all for ire rely personal motives in udation to pnl.die affairs. j Mr. Prekiii.s, as wo have said be- j fore, makes no pretentious aw a pro- | found, original statesman. iln is ' essentially a prartcial man and his work in tho Senate is, abo\e all else, on practcal lines.

He is an untiring worker, sparing himself at no point, where the interests of the State or the country at large are concerned. He stand? among tho little group of senators only eight or ten all told who enj;jy -\ special prestige and in- tluence through long service.
