The world is looking toward California. You know this is a tact—you can see indications of it in every periodical, every newspaper that catches your eye. The capital of the East is only waiting for the presidental election to settle conditions, when it will pour into our country as never before in history. TO WHAT LOCALITY WILL IT COME? It will come to our locality to a liberal extent if we advertise the undoubted excellence of the Upper San Gabriel Valley. We want eastern homeseekers to be aware of whatiwe've got here before they take the train for the Land of the, Goldeu Afternoon. When they arrive in Los Angeles we want them to already have made up their minds to COME AND SEE COVINA. We want them to see the towns of Covina, Irwindale, Walnut Center, Charter Oak, Puente, Azusa and Glendora and that is all which is necessary. A VISITOR FOR A DAY IS PERHAPS A CITIZEN FOR LIFE. Then let's get together for the Covina Argus Exploitation Number. Make it profuse with new illustrations, honest in its reading matter, wide in its scope, a big paper exploiting a beautiful country. , Have an article about your ranch or business in this paper.

Do you know that the water, coining through tho uimdy canyoiiH, is ioy cold, and when you put it, on your land it \n nearly as cold? Well, how do you expect to get a crop, if you are working directly against nature? 1C this lay water in working directly against nature, it i.s heat not to put it on at all until tho tree gets to a Htnlo when your middle feeders are wot king. Don't say that tho t'crt ili/ei you put on did not do its work. Don't say you did all you could to produce a crop and made a failure. Don't say your trees aro too old or that they aro going hack on you. Hay it is I who have worked against nature. If you ever have heon I rout, fishing the first day of May and waded in the water near tho mouth r of tho San (iahriol liver, you know you never had such cold feet as then. Look at it IIH I do.
