Covina Argus Exploitation Number BRING THEM HERE TO SEE! Thousands arc coming to California this year. Thousands more than ever before. The world is looking 1 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 Kast 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 what.we've got here before they take the train for the Land of the Golden Afternoon. When they arrive in Los Angeles we want, them to already have made up their minds to COME AND SKK COVINA. We want them to see the towns of Covina, Irwimlale, Walnut Center, Charier Oak, I'uente, Axusa 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 a/ticlc about your ranch or business in this paper. Get into communication with the Argus right awav.
