TWOMF.Y St DILLER Covina's Leading Implement Mouse Moves Into Larger and Better Quarters Opposite the Hotel Vendomo, in (tie new Platt building, the implement firm of Twomey & Diller has taken up Its quarters, and opened one of the best stocked Implement houses in this portion of the valley. The coming of this rtrm to open a branch house from their big business in Pomona, was a decided addition to the 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 l.os 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 be unknown to any other locality. These implements 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 coast. 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 the 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. NEW FERTILIZER WORKS San Clabrlel Valley Fertilizer Association will Build Plant In Near Future. Realizing the extent of this fioKl 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 the name of the San Gabriel Valley Fertilizer Association. The association will be In the hands of prominent growers of this vicinity. It has been feit 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 (ho growing demand, thus keeping those sums of money at home instead of being sent out of the country. The gentlemen who will be actively connected with the management arc men of standing who have the confidence of those they have conic in contact with. Mr. J. M. Stanton is well known to the growers and merchants of this vicinity from his long residence in Covina. Mr. A. M. Kremer comes highly recommended from Los Angeles, of which he is a native and whose people figure among the pioneers and brings the highest, testimonials from LOR Angeles banks and business houses. It has been somewhat difficult in obtaining the names of all growers and if any of our readers 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 hero In town. PROFESSIONAL CARDS [JR. WILBUR H. CLARK (Successor to Dr, J. C. Good?!!) OSTEOPATH Phones: Office 175. Hours 9-4 First Nat. Bank Bldg. Covina, Cal [)RS.

"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. No firm ever built up a business selling worthless lands." This remark conies from George E. Covert, the youngest real estate dealer in the San Gabriel valley, and one of George Covert. the most successful in Covina. He has been selling real estate since he has seventeen, and he 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 iu 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 !s 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 thla 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.

"Everything for the horse," is the motto of the company, and a glance Inside the warerooms and workshop verifies this statement. The company deals in whips, robes, saddlery-hardware and ARCHITECT M. B. FOLSOM. M. B. Folsom is an architect whose work is Just coming into prominence In this section. The need for fine discrimination in designing homes'is a part of the fine art of home-building, and Mr. Folsom has made California needs his particular study. Among the homes erected by this architect and builder is the Collins residence in Charter Oak, a beautiful fashioning after the English type of architecture. Mr. Folsom is at present engaged In building a home for George Anderson, at the corner cf Azusa avenue and Puente street, Covina, and has other houses to build in the near future. California's governor, William Gillett, while speaking from the veranda of the Hotel Vendorne tn Covina recently, spoke of "Covina's big crop of boys and gtrla, more valuable than the orange crop." That is eminently correct. But the orange crop must come first or the boys and girls will have little show in this life. Kings may die and countries may decline, but Santa Claus will forever remain an institution. J, MANKIEWICZ all equipments for the and stable.
