STORM MAKES EARLY CALL Jupiter Pluvius Breaks all September Records. Not in the history of the San Gn- briel valley for many years has there been such a rainfall iu September. It caught the ranchers of the Coviua district totally uupreparod. but such is the character of the crops here that little damage was done. The loss will be felt strongest up the coast; in Ventura, where thousands of acres of beans were curing in the shock. Bean growers say, however, that if the sun stays out for a few days so that the beans can be dried there will be little loss, but if it continues cloudy and rainy the beans will rot. Covina and vicinity is benefltted by this early rain. The citrus fruits will not need irrigation for a time. The dry pasturage on the Puente hills is spoiled, but if other rains come in order to keep the new grass growing there will be no suffering on account of short pasture. L. L. Ratekin of the San Gabriel Milling Company said yesterday that very little grain iu the sack was out iu the rain, as the ranchers had gotten it all into tho warehouses with the exception of a few small iots. Quite a little hay in bales remained uncovered, he said. A loss to the small fruit growers can be chronicled without 'question. Small fruits, however, have been a cheap product this year. ; <, 7;be rain ~pnt'inwny .taiepkcrM oat of commission throughout the valley. The Home Telephone Company in this district at one time bad twenty-five lines working badly, putting out of commission 110 telephones. Prompt work got them into shape again and the system is back again to a normal condition. The Pacific Light & Power Company had no particular trouble. It is interesting to note the fact that the 1908 rainfall is far in excess of anything tor the aarae mouth for a number of previous years. The total is given as two and two ntie- hundredtns inches.

During the afternoons the parlors were crowded with ladies, including nisny from Azuaa. Irwindale and fjlendora, who were delighted with the many beautiful creations display ed. Kach lady received a souvenir in the form of a beautiful (Ink carna tion, which grow to greater per feet ion ir ; ('aliform* than in any other Male it iLe union. Exploitation Number Growing. Tho immediate response met with in the first week of work on the big Exploitation Number of tho Argus. which will appear shortly, shows beyond a doubt that this encompassing edition will be the most successful ever gotten out in the San Gabriel 'valley. The outlying districts surrounding Covina have been quick to see the possibilities of advertisement from suoh a source, and spnoo in tho issue is being rapidly contracted for. It is the intention of the Argus to give a complete resume <rf uuch localities as Covina, Irwindale, Charter Oak, San Dimas, Pueute, Walnut Center, Bassett, AZUSH and Glendora, and the Upper San Gabriel valley iu general. Tho articles dealing with the growth and production of citrus fruits and walnuts, und all other productions of this splendidly rich region will be carefully prepared, many of them by experts, and all by competent writers on theso subjects. In making up an advertising medium, care must always be exercised to prepare the matter in such a manner that it will appeal to people not conversant with California life and conditions. Therefore much of the body of different articles will be composed of facts well known to everyone iu this vicinity, but new light and new facts will also be incorporated. The middle westerner has little conception of our lands here. When be becomes convinced he comes here, and stays to work under conditions better than be dreamed existed. Photographs that will be convincing proof wi'll be used without stint. At the present time there is a demand the world. e tion Committee ia sending out calls for good photographs from every community. Covina is constantly asked to produce illustrations of this beautiful country here. It must be remembered at all times that we have the lauds and tho opportunities bore without question, and that in writing of it there is no necessity for over-statements. On the contrary, it is necessary iu some instances to bo conservative about absolute facts of our productions, us the outsider will not believe them until given positive proof on the ground. For instance, if it IB said that a mun iu Covina bus paid 8'2,000 per acre for a Valencia grove and is realizing 25 per cent interest on his investment, the statement will bo taken aa a gross exaggeration, though being true and capable of being proved, although exceptional. With this idou in mind the Kx- riloitution Number of the Argus will be gotten out, employing the greateat amount of intelligence. Ho far HH we have progrosHfid the work is going finely. We are going to place this country around us definitely 'in the minds of the whole United Htatew. Con.iidcr what this rueans to you individually. Ranchers Discuss Fertili/cr.s. A very suceei-.hful meriting of the Covina Valley Farmers' Club was held oti Saturday afternoon in the 1'ienl.yi eriiin Clmrcti social I. all. Tho subject, "l''::rl ilixiTH, " was warmly dJHCuaBed, no special speak ers being present, but valuable Information was given by practical local nien. The program included a funny German recitation by Mitis Meta UrunjeH ami a piano solo, Men dlfeHshon'H "Spring Hung, " by MHH Anna Reynolds. A communication was received from J. B. Neff of Anaheim inviting Covina to bold the next institute. It. was decided that this should be done about, the end of next month, probably iu one of the church buildings.

Mr. Conk came with his family to California in the spring of 1HH7, and Covina knew him an an active worker in the Sunday wehool branch i,1 the MetliodiM Church.
