The pity of t,ho shooting affair in TcnneHHoe is that it should )mv» boon brought about, by tho written word artioloH in Senator Carmack'a newspaper. Tho rmri is a dangerous thing in the hands of men who do not know tho value of charity, arid in saying this, il, i.s not, intended to show that Carriionk wan urir.hari table. Only that he was not a newspaper man. Carmaok lout, hi.s lift; because he could not wee that it was wholly uri- ncoeHHary for him to rovilo hin enemy in a public print,, bringing the <|iiar rel on I, where all would Heo tlie whole dirty buflineHH, the wholo dirty, political \vrangle. This if) tho (act that not any man in the world knows how to run a newspaper o.xeeptiriK the men born in tho craft and to tho waft. How often does Homo talented man, with a penchant for literature turn his thoughts toward the editorial page of some daily, and exclaim: "I oan- riot understand why tho editorials are not more pithy; I cannot, understand why you don't come out and say that a spade is a Npade. " And then he fondly fmyu to himself that ho can beat the editorial writers all hollow it they would give hi in the chance. So indeed ho could. Ho oould the editorial writers indite lines of ilro and brimstone if they didn't know that the policy would probably kill the newspaper in a few weeks. Does the gentle reader know the reason why H spade is not always called a spade, oven in tho great metropolitan dailies? It is because tho spade ia not tho property of tho newspaper, and it is not the newspaper's business to stir up rancor for the mere sake of writing Hery editorials. That is the reason why nuoh men as Carmack become dangerous to a community when placed in an editorial position. There is a vast difference between strong editorial writing and simple vituperation. Almost any man with courage can indite editorials which will sting. It is not the great men of the craft who do this. The Carmaok murder is a regretable thing, a terrible blot on American politics and the work of the American press. Carmaok was an orator, almost, a statesman. Whatever his licenso had led him to do in tho editorial chair, there was no reason for hit) murder. The European press lake up tho matte and d'lHCUHH it, and put it do\vn to one more hot-headed affair of the har- bario A morion us. We have too few men of Carmack'H caliber in this country. Ijot murder remain with I ho degenerate, the low in character, and not creep into tho ranks of our near-groat Americans. (let the Habit. i'lospurity wook has noomod to take effect in tho himrt.s o(' tho people of Houthoin California with great, /oat. Coming immediately after tho impetus to liusiiicNH was given by thodo- oieion in I ho election, tho six days of home trailing and patronage of home produnts bids fair to ho a lively one, Tiio idea of the Chamber of Commerce of Los AnnoU'H is to distribute literature and advertise from balloons over Southern California, KO watch tor the hig gas bugn during the coming week. llecd the request for homo trade, not only for this week but for all time.. Tho Argus has lieen writing home trade articles for a long linns and the merchants huve been endeavoring to impress tho fact upon the people with more or lens hiiccuHS that they mtint trade at home or rob themselves.

The room having the highest average daily attendance for any month wins the silk flag and holds it/during the succeeding four weeks. Tho first month in tho school year, Miss Manning's room won the flag with an average of 99 3-10 per cent. The pupils from that room marched down nnd captured the Hag from Miss lladdock'u room, where it had been since last year, and con tinned their march through the building Hinging, "Ually 'Round the Flag." The children down stairs mado their boasts about what they would do tho second month. At the end of that month Miss Manning's room again won tho flag with an average of 100 percent, having not one absent mark against any child's name Tho lioya and girls ot that room held a party Friday after tichool, in tiio vacant room, to celobrato their victory, loo creiuii and cake were nerved. If any of tho other rooms wins that Hag next, month, they will have to work for it. ATTENTION.

Attention must be called to the fact that Covina automobilists arc becoming careless again as regards the turning of street corners. It Is only necessary to mention this and not to go further into the matter, for the men who operate machines are fully conversant with the law. The state law provides that the horn or bell shall be rung before the corner is turned, and tbe speed that a corner shall be taken in ia also regulated. The corner speed law SB almost universally violated as pertains absolute text, but the main thing is to be care lul. Some pitiable things may happen at the corner of Citrus avenue and Badillo street, or at Citrus avenue and tho street junctions both east and west as far as Cypress avenue. City Marshal Mehuert says that it may be necessary to arrost some persistent offenders, but will do Mottling of the kind if a reasonable amount ol care is exercised in turning the busy corners of the town. It's up to the automobilists. They don't want an accident to happen. That's why they'll be careful about those corners. Fresh oysters. 20o a dozen al Cronshuw's Grocery. Notice to Orange Qrowers.
