The gentlemen, to the number of about seventy-five from Southern California, will probably go in a special train and will start on the 23rd or 21th of September. Special stress is laid on the point that the Exchange invites all ornngo and lemon growers in any 'part of the citrua belts to attend the convention. Special rates to the East have been supplied by the railroad companies on all lines. The convention will open Tuesday morning, September 29th, and there will be two sessions daily, from 9 until 12 and from 2 until E5 o'clock. Three subjects will bo considered at each discussion. President F. Q. Story of the Exchange will act as chairman. The convention will be welcomed to the city by the mayor of Kansas City, after which it will be opened for the general program.

Many of the papers to be read will come from men well known by tho citrus growers of Coviua and vicinity. The convention comes at a time of year when all can best afford to attend, and it is contended by the Exchange that the meeting will be one of inestimable value to the rancher as woll as the men connected with shipping. buys at Beaumont.

Four score years of a life beautiful because useful and upright, cnmo to a quiet close ou Wednesday afternoon of this week through the death of Dr. William Thome, a man whose business life practically ceased on his coming to Covina, but whose influence has been felt widely in this country. He was 89 years old. Besides the aged widow residing here, he leaves one son, William B. Thome, a searcher of records for a title guarantee company of Los Angeles. The funeral was held Thursday afternoon at, 2 o'clock at the Church of the Holy Trinity, Kev. Alfred Fletcher officiating. Two hymns, old favoritea with Dr. Thome, were sung, "Abide With Me," and "Rock of Ages." The church was crowded with friends and relatives, and the casket was covered with beautiful floral offerings. Dr. William Thome wns born in Tivorton, Devonshire, England, January 22, 1820, and came with hia parents in 1834 to America, locating in Chautauqua county, New York. He studied medicine at St. Clairvillfi with Hedges & Kimball one year, afterwards with Dr, Hill sixteen months, going from this teacher to the Buffalo Medical College in 1847. He practiced medicine in Chautauqua county for one year and a half, and then returned to the Buffalo university and graduated in 1850. For six months he was located in Sugar Grove, Pennsylvania, and then removed to Hastings, Minnesota, where he continued bis work up until his removal to Covina in 1898. He was a member of the American Medical Society, the Minnesota State Medical Society, and was known as »p authority on obstetrics and diptheria. Dr. Thome was a life-long member of the Episcopal church, a devoted churchman and a liberal supporter of the work throughout his life. The community of Hastings, where he spent the greater portion of bis life, loved rind respected him, and knew him as a faithful practitioner in whose hauda might safely be placed the care of their families. Ho has u record in the medical circles in Minnesota which is one of an enviable nature. Since coming to Covina ho has devoted himself entirely to tho supervision of his orange ranch of eighteen acres. When this ranch was taken over by Dr. Thome it was in extremely poor condition, and Dr. Thome stated himself that tho fruit taken from it, th« first year netted him only 8150. So intelligent and constant has boon the doctor's application to agriculture that ho recently sold one crop for $11,050. These figures are placed in tho story of this man's Ufa history to show that whatever he attempted he always attended to to the best of his ability. During tho ten years he lived here Dr. Thome wns a member of the Coviua Country Club. Hit whole life was art exemplification of right living, of charity and rectitude, and hia passing car: only be looked upon aa tho natural tei inination of a lifo Hrent. Club Forming. A meeting of young men wan called to order at 8:15 p.m., Aug. HI, in the S'ander.s building, by the chairman. The initial [taper of tho organixation was read and several signatures obtained.
