Head the article carefully and be prepared for concerted action, for it concerns you and will benefit you. Covina is in no need of violent booming. The day of booms for tho San Oabriel valley is past. But Co- viua as a town is in the same position as n good, healthy department store. It must be advertised steadily and intelligently, or it will fall behind in this rapid march which is going on all over the state of California. The Covina Argun lias done all that lay in its power to advertise, this community in a conservative and truthful manner in tho past, and shall continue to do so.

Mr, Marshall will be engaged in this work for the coming four weeks, and this announcement is for the purpose of preparing the rancher find the business man for the proposition as he will explain it to everybody. A word again in regard to the con tents of this industrial edition. It will contain the articles best suited to attract the attention of the man or woman intending to take up a home here. A new and prominent citl/en of Covina, .State Senator Huller, in an article elsewhere in this paper, nays that the duty of the town is to get, the people here, and then the undoubted excellence of the country will do the rest. This i« true, and on this basis will the work be gotten out. The issue Is to be lavishly illustrated with up-to-date photographs, among which will be a half page cut, of the $00,000 high school building which Covina will build immediately. The citrus industry will be explained carefully, the walnut Industry and the homes and ranches and business houses will occupy prornlneent space. The issue will bo an authority on all subjects it, deals with. Tho work has never been done before «s it will be done this year. Tho people of tho viciri- ty are asked to get together in one concerted movement and place Covina definitely on tho map throughout the entire country. With this article as a foreword, the editor turns the work over to Mr. Marshall with the full conviction that, the work is in good hands. J. L. MATTHKWH. WALNUT CENTER.
