TVVOMRY & OILLHR Covina's Leading Implement. House Moves Into Larger and Better Quarters Opposite the Hotel Vondmno, in 'In- new Platt building, the Implement firm of Twomey & Diller has taken up its (|u<irtors, and opened one of the best stocked implement houses in this portion of the valley. The coming of this firm to open :i branch house from their big business in Pomona, was a decided addition to Die business of this town, and enables the rancher and business man to deal with a reputable implement firm right at home instead of making a trip to Los Angeles or other centers. The farming machinery of Southern California is peculiar to this region. The very names of implements employed In the culture of oranges would lie unknown to any other locality. These imp'ements this firm makes a specialty of carrying in stock, and besides these tools, everything pertaining to the tilling of the soil. such as fertilizer drills, gang plows and walking plows, harrows, farm wagons, and wagon gear, small ranch tools, etc. A big line of carriages and buggies is also carried, the firm dealing with the largest wholesale houses on the const. The fact that is necessary to impress upon the rancher of this locality Is that he can obtain from this firm any manner or make of ranch implements at a price that is just as good. or a little less than the same implement can be bought for in Los Angeles, and besides this, the rancher is saved the price of freight or expressage from (lie big city. Then too. the Twomey & Diller firm will set up the machines for the purchaser, whereas the Los Angeles firms will send them in parts, and the rancher loses a half- day and a good deal of patience, studying out the way to put the machinery into working order. Whenever a part is broken the local firm can supply it. either out of stock or within twenty- four hours, thus saving time for the business man, who would otherwise use up an entire day in town, and then wait for their parts to be shipped. Mr. Diller, who is in charge of the Covina store, has won many friends since coming here by his strict integrity and his knowledge of the business. NI:\V PERTIUZHR WORKS. 5nn (inbrlel Vnlley Fertilizer Association will Build Plant In Near Future. Realizing the extent of this field and appreciating our locality as being ideal as a distributing point for the immense amount of fertilizers and fertilizing materials that are used in this valley, a mutual fertilizer manufacturing plant is about to be established here under tin name of the San Gabriel Valley Fertilizer Association. The association will be in the hands of prominent growers of this vicinity. It lias been felt for a long time that a fertilizer plant should be established here as the growers are importing such immense quantities of these most necessary commodities to supply the growing demand, thus keeping these sums of money at home instead of being sent out of the country. The gentlemen who will be actively connected with the management ate men of standing who have the confidence of those they have come in eon- tact with. Mr. .1. M. Stanton is we!! known to the growers and merchants of this vicinity from his long residence I in Covina. Mr. A. M. Kremer comes j highly recommended from Los Ange- j Ics. of which he is a native and whose ! people figure among the pioneers and ! brings the highest testimonials from j Los Angeles banks and business ! bouses. It has been somewhat dilllcult in obtaining tl.e names of all growers and if any of our renders have not been informed in detail of the plans of the association, they may get full information by calling on or telephoning Mr. J. M. Stanton at his office here in town. PROFESSIONAL CARDS ()R. WIUU'K II. CLARK (Successor to Dr. ,!. C. Ci<x»lelll OSTEOPATH PLiuiics: Oflice 175. Hours 9-4 l/irst Nat. Hank Hldg-. Covina, Cal QRS.

"The secret, of success in the realty business is to get land listed in your firm that is good profit-bearing land, and then sell it at a reasonable profit for the owner. Xo firm ever built up a business selling worthless lands." This remark comes from George 15. Covert, the youngest real estate dealer in the San Gabriel valley, and one of I REDLANDS PASSES RIVERSIDE. ! The annual forecast of the citrus I fruit crop of California, compiled from dat.a gathered in all parts of the slate, has been issued.

He has been selling real estate since he has seventeen, and lie is now twenty- three years old. Covert sold thousands of acres of land in Washington when he was connected with a realty firm in Spokane, and since coming to Covina he has sold high-priced ranches In alfalfa, oranges, lemons and walnuts, and built up a paying business for himself. During the month of October he sold nearly $100,000 worth of property in Covina and vicinity on the commission basis. Mr. Covert has made a study of soils and of fertilization in order to become more familiar with the lands bearing the most profit In fruits. As one of the younger generation in the time when orange culture is becoming more and more a science, he has realized that it is the scientific method that points to the success of the future, and for this reason, as well as for the fact of his business integrity and ability, he will undoubtedly become one of the foremost dealers in real estate in this section.
