The liivvii senator's intimate know- loduu ot the adiiilniwlrations, both Ifoinoeiat io and Republican, of tho PIIH! decade, gives him an authority frum which to speak that commands the reaped, of anyone an<l everyone, it is Hate to say that, although the main body "t the vast crowd in the auditorium wire supporters of the Tuft standards, the lemainder were in perfect syinpal n.v and friendliness \vith this stalwart Itiwan, in whom (he ''milk ot human kindness" has nut. turned to clabber, whose he.irt cannot pronii't him to mud slinging a political op|innent, and the en thiisiiisin and applause tiotii liis aiidi eiu'o spoke eloquently of 1 )olli\ tip's [losit juii wil h t he puidic. \Vliile speaking wilhoul rancor, the senator did not hpare the l>cmu fnit ie pally ii. hit- sleeping dciiun c.iat ion of ii-, policies concerning the tariff, and the California audience rose and clui-u-d when lit* slated lhat the Kcpul.lii'aiib would uainlali! the present rale and work IV,r a higher tarilt on cilr'is hulls tor l!,< henelll tit the Pacillc c.aM.

From Covina a delegation of thirty votfi'H hoard tho groat speech in the auditorium, receiving good Heats. Among them were two old "i<'re- inonterB", ,1. i'\ .Hrow and C. \'ai'fhh, pioneers in the Republican party and in (lie stale of (,'alitorna.

Here is a littlo word for the pooplo of C'uvina. It is a I'omlnder to you of your duly. Hut the duty i.s a | pleasant one. H in for your mvn interests. It i.s addicsscd to the business man and the lancher, and in | about your hotel in this town. When we say "your hotel," wo mean ex- jiirtly what, wu nay. Think a moment, 'mill you will natch the idea. .Now here is an example of what we're driving at. Listen carefully and I memori'/e. j ''Will you please ttdl me where the hotel is in this tcwnV" VCH sir yes madam, it. is ri^ht up this street from the carl ine where you're standing, not ipiite two block.-*, nil ihe letl hand side the Hotel Veil dnine \'nit can't miss it. " "Well, iiiuv I wonder it" we ran j-'et t-omcl Iiin^; decent to eat and a ^ood room. We're out hen. tor a few da) > to In.ik anuind. '' i "'ion can ^et tirst class service at ithic. hoirl. Mr. KilyUtTald, the proprietor, who )ian been in charge lor about one >>ar. ha-, made this a tine hotel, with rales reasonable, comtorc- al)le Inom^ alid l.lli-r table ser\ice and food than can be obtained in the I'll. 1 cities ul I he -tale. Von Won't make any mistake in slopping w'nh Mi. i''lt /l ieiabl. " Now Mr. Uu.-iiie-.i Man an.) l.'.-ia ci.i r, theai-o\e i • .'•. -:Ui;j le ^t wliat we want to introduce this winter. Mr. FitzGeraJd is an advertiser with the Argus. But so is every business man in tho town. The Argus is not booming the hotel be- 'jaiise the proprietor pays for an advertisement, but because Mr. Fitz- (jnrnld'H hotel, maintained on tho plan which he has maintained it, makes business better for tho Argus, for the grocer, tho butcher, the real estate man, the Htablo man and tho whole of the Covina valley in general. Isn't it a fact? Doesn't a good hotel advertise a town better than anything you jxmibly can think of? • Now, good people, lead a littlo further. We are talking about you. When you come into town, get your dinner or your lunch at, tho Hotel Vendoino. On Sundays, when tho family should vest and tho kitchen is no place for your \vifo--telephono the hotel and have a family table ro.served for you. Why not? Tho people fif this town may well ho proud of tho manner in which this hotel advertises tho community by HH excellence. Thou patroiiixo it yourself. (live him hack some of tho trade ho is giving you every day. That is the first law of business. When a butunoBs man comes to see you at your store or ranch, send him to the hntol after tho transaction is over. You can't make any mistake by doing so, and you are building up a business which is vitally essential lo this community. You know we have not always had a good hotel here. The proprietor of tho ilotel Yen- dome says that business has been fair, but not anything like what he expeetis it will be thii, winter, and he is making preparations for tho wintyr trade. (let in and boost him and be will certainly reciprocate. This is one of the Argus articles on home industries. It isn't paid for, except that our buisness grows better just as fast as business around us grows better. WALNUT CENTER. Good news comes from the Covina Home Telephone company this week.
