This practical city of oranges, Covina, of tlie Upper San Gabriel valley, is not employed In throwing largo bompiets at Covina, but the manner in which D, Kymnn Huff of the Covina Kruit ICxchange managed the reception of tlio visiting Florida orange growers on Thursday of this week, refloctH credit on the community, arid credit miiKt fall where credit IH due. Fifty of the far-uway raisers of the golden fruit of golden rctuniB came In on tho Pacific lOlect.rlc cars in the early morning, and wore met by Mr. Huff and oflicorH of the Covina Krnit JCxchange at the ear line, while- over thirty aiitomobiloH lined up on Citrus avenue, waiting for the gentlemen to embark and mako it tour of IriBpecl.lon of this valley, which we think IH worthy of Inspection by any orange grower In the world. The big rnachlncfi were owned and in nearly every case operated by Covina orange growerH, A ride through the groves was participated in by the vlHitorn. Many questions were asked concerning tho method of fertilization of groves, but It was not until the vlsltoro wore shown the packing bouses In full process of sending out the fruit that tho approval of tho southerners became manifestly apparent Covina made a very favorable Impression in regard to the preparation of the fruit for the market. Tho visiting gentlemen were taken In machines to Olendora and A/.usa, arid •wont from thence to Pomona, where they were given mibstantlal courage for tho Inner man at tho tables provided for them.
