Did a ministerial looking man with a Hoft-spoken wife call upon you lately, asking contributions for a "home for the poor?" Did you "dig down" and supply them with assistance for this laudable project? You probably did not, but they were In Covina a few days ago and worked the whole district. Thin man was William Ruhl, according to the Los Angeles police, and he ban worked this game In Wyoming, Utah and other states. The home for the poor IH situated at 1207 West Severity-Fourth street, Los Angeles, and IH not nearly as poor a home aH one might expect, for It Is the domicile of Mr. and Mrs. Ruhl, who have appropriated all funds contributed for their own support solely. The graft is an old one and it should not bo necessary to warn Covina citizens, but a few unwary ones might have got caught for small sums. Mrs. K. W.

Chapproned by Miss Vyvyenne Faulder, a merry party of yo-ing people walked out. to the Chilton home Saturday evening to surprise Miss Mattie Chilton, who leaves next week with her mother to spend the summer in Oklahoma. It was a real surprise, for; Mattle was taking supper with the MlHHes Irwln, and during her absence the house was decorated with an a- bundarice of flowers and all preparations made. They played all kinds of jolly games and were fortified with ice cream, cake and strawberries. Mrs. Chilton waH assisted by the Misses Irwin. Those present were the Misses Clifford, Capron, Potter, Graham, Van Auken, Broadwell and Lois Gibson of Monrovia; Messrs. Roy and Ray Kistler, Hubert Neil, Custer, Wa- terhoufl?, Fabrlck, Leisure, Atwood, and Sisson. Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Smith returned home from church last Sunday morning and stepping into the dining room were greeted with a banquet spread that was an entire surprise to them, as the capficlous table was loaded to the limit with all the tempting viands that could be prepared by experts in the .culinary line. All signs of visitors were quietly and Huccessfully hidden away, but passing Into the parlor the room was discovered filled with relatives who had assembled from different parts, representing Covina, Chartor Oak, Long Beach, Hollywood and Pasadena.

Miss Josephine Widney, for several years a teacher in the Covina primary grades, has tendered her resignation, to take effect at the end or the term. Miss Widney's resignation is accepted with regret, as she has proven herself to be a capable teacher, and one who understands the training of little tots in their flrat years of school.

A gentleman wished to know recently why we could not compete with Los Angeles. We took him down to the shoe repair shop and readHy showed him why. Among the shoes there for repair was a pair of men's imitation calf shoes, cheap McKay made, with the soles barely soiled. In putting them on the owner had torn the top in two, the quality being so poor the leather would notstand even so slight a strain. The owner had told the shoe man they were $4.00 shoes, but he got them for $2.00.. Do you know what would have happened had Mr. So-and-so bought those shoes here? He wpuld have come in and created a rough-house, Xow this sample; ?Woe game is not new. It's just a variation of a game. There's a little truthtn it — just this: If you have a small, narrow foot, or If you will buy last season's shoes, you can save some money. But reliable dealers will sell them to you, and you cannot buy standard makes. We don't dare to misrepresent goods. We don't dare to talk $4.00 shoes for $2.00. The failure of the largest department store In Pomona marks the passing of a store that tried to build its foundation upon cheap goods in a small town. Had they run the game on Broadway they could have made it stick. GOOD SHOES. Good shoemaking shows in every line of our Brockton shoes. See the new COMMON SENSE lasts for men, and the SO-EASY for women. Also the serge shoes for housewear. FINE SHOPPING BAGS— SAMPLES. A well known firm's, condition perfect, ONE-THIRD OFF.

We do not think we are competent to write upon so important a matter as the tariff, but as we know the clipping bureaus furnish our senators with every news item from the press upon this subject, we wish to say we are not in sympathy with the petitions being circulated by the leather trade and the importers for a reduction in the tariff on hides and hosiery. Our present prosperity is due to protection, andwe askprotection for our own industries. It does not seem proper that we should ask for tariff reductions upon some article or articles that some other district depends upon for their prosperity. It does not matter what price we pay for our hosiery and shoes if our industries are prosperous. The operatives in our hosiery mills ask for an increase In the tariff on hosiery, and should have it. This would not change the price of domestic hose retailing from lOc to 2;ic per pair, and on the finer grades would increase the cost but 2Vic per pair. Our domestic mills coul& never have achieved their present standard without protection, and while we admit hosiery could be sold cheaper were the duty reduced, • or taken off, it would be at the expense of labor, necessitating the reduction of our labor costs to those of Europe. Our standard of living in this country is too high, and our conditions of life too dissimilar for this. We stand for the tariff and, right or wrong, for the protection of every industry, trust or no trust. In the administration of our internal affair there are ninny grave problems. But it would seem there should be means) found without calling for foreign intervention. Lot us have a permanent tariff commission. THE COTTON CHEAT Cotton is serviceable and when sold for what It is there is no room for complaint. But when mixed with wool in clothing, you are not getting what you pay for. The Royal Tailors sell only all-wool goods which stand the boiling tent. Take ono of our sami'les, bull for 20 miih't.fs in a 10 per ci'iir sol 1 , i ion of caustic .il wash thorn i are. water. ., ih 's genuine .- Cciusti!: soda barn ii up eorn- 1 !t tely. If the cloth id part cotton, the caustic soda will burn off the wool and leave the cotton. Try it on other makes. Try it on Royal Tailor goods. All wool Is the only kind that holds its. shape and wears. Buy Royal Tailor chithts. They mean real satisfaction. su(i i
