COVINA, CAL., .n:\io r,, inon. A Senator Worth Having. Sonfitor Flint won a HiibHtantial victory for the lemon producers In having t,ho tariff rates raised to 1 % ff-ntH per pound. Nothing that'this ContfresH could havo done, except the retention of '.lie other duties on fruits, could have had a better Influence on the wellheitiR of Southern California. Senator I'M Int., by this one act, IB entitled to the support and friendship of all clansen. California, had opposition from (lie New York Importers, whose pleu for file Sicilian shippers was voiced by Senator lOllhu Hoot. The discussion demonstrated that the tariff In a local issue, if any further proof of that fact, were needed. All that California ask<-d W;IH to be placed at least on an equality with the Sicilians. Our lemons must bear the COM!, of a lorif? and expensive hind haul by railroad In order to reach the New York market. The S'lcllian producers, on the other hand, gel. their product into the same market, by n cheap ocean haul, plus the duty. Now It must bo evident to .•my fair-minded observer that the tariff on lemons serves merely to give us a chance, the difference In freight rates considered, to cornpeto In an American market. Klllui Root, Republican though he Is presumed to be, would have denied us that opportunity. We In California make many sacrifices In order that industries in other parts of the country may bo protected, and If. Is our right In return to receive protection where if Is fibsolutoly essential, Truth to toll, California would bo hotter off without any duty on hides, coal, lumber, woolen goods, tin plate, chemicals, generally, and thousands of articles that might bo enumerated. Not being a manufacturing state in the s<»nso that Pennsylvania, Ohio, Massachusetts and other eastern commonwealths are manufacturing states, we pay higher prices for nearly everything that we use than we would under absolute free; trade In these commodities. Yet we go on paying those prices, the return advantage! being In necessary protection for the products peculiar to thin Kt.'ite. And oven this would be denied us, If Mr. Root and his importing friends had their way. We have Just had another instance of a strong and Influential man being in the Senate to look out for UH. Senator Flint's position on two of the important committees of the Semite lias been of untold value to us. The lesson should sink In. Rev, J. W. Utter Will Dedicate New Church. Rev. .1. \V.

This Disease and Hay Fever Practi cally the Same, Says Covina Physician. Hay fever and asthma are very much alike, If not the name disease, states Dr. Lloyd W. Wells, osteopa- thlflt, who has offtcen In the Webb block, over Warner, Whltsel & CO.'B store. Whether this bo true In all cases or not, the physician states that, the cause is from the same source— diseased nerves puffing the parts affected. In treating these diseases by O8t.eopat.hic treatment, the gentle manipulation reduces the obstruction, cures the nerves and eliminates the poison. These diseases always respond Immediately to osteopathic treatment. UNWRITTEN HISTORY. Mayor Lahee Sheds Light on Early Episodes In the Life of the Great Fremont. "lu the olden days of the first year of the war, John (1. Fremont was n • personage In St. Louis, wh^r" at that time employed," said Mayor K. H. Lahee last Friday at the exercises in honor of Civil war veterans, held by the eighth grade of the grammar school. Mayor- Lahee went on to tell the scholars how Oeneral Fremont was wont, to come driving through the streets of the city In his splendid carriage, of his hospitality at the big house outside the city, of the difficulties Oeneral Fremont had with the nation's officials which embroiled him in many a controversy, l)r. Wells states that drugs are very ; arid ninny little side-lights of the fam- li.'irmftil In this case as in many-cases, and warns people not to continue dosing and poisoning the tissues. If you sire contemplating going to some health resort, to get well, it would be better to talk with this physician before going , and be cured at borne. Examination, and consultation free. The doctor Invites you to visit and learn what the treatment can do. In CovitiA Monday, Wednesday and Friday.—Adv. ous man's character.

Kor some reason and from some unknown source, a rumor started this wok that I lie body of a Japanese laborer had boon taken from the reservoir of the Covina domestic water company. This would be rather unpleasant news, if it wore true. But fortunately for the Covina customers of this company, no such thing lias happened, nor could It occur. The reservoir is hermetically covered on top, and wherever the air roaches it (lie apertures are screened, HO that not oven the .smallest animal or oven insects cau got In to contaminate the water.
