Alien Cameron, who has for many years been In charge of the sheep belonging to B. J. (Lucky) Baldwin, has boon appointed manager of the Baldwin warehouses and is now lu charge of (lie .shipping and storing of immense quantities of hay and (fruit). Apathetic Covlna? The editor of the Argus ha« re^elv- ed the following communication, and publishes It without comment: Are the people of Covlna attempting to emulate the Bostonese In pub- j lie deportment? Is repression of feeling a sign of aesthetic temper- ment? Is It necessary to be coldly cautious In public place* when called upon to paas Judgment on the character of an entertaiurnent, or the soundness of some movement for public good? Why are Covlna audiences so cold? What reason Is there for Covlna audiences remaining unmoved throughout a program, to the nervous consternation of the entertainers, and the Io8» of the enjoyment that comes from cooperation between audience and stage? Is It because of an utter lack of home loyalty, of a kind that looks with veiled contempt, upon home efforts, whether In business or enter- ! i tilnment? I I sat through an entertainment In Covlna last week, at which nearly, every prominent family in the locality ' was represented In the audience. It was probably the most representative gathering this community has ever known, because of the nature of the affair, Its careful, yet generous selection of patrons through Invitation. Kvery person there wtis as distinctly a guest an if invited to a private table. The entertainment, was given through courtesy of strangers, educated, ae«- thetle people who had no denigns upon Covlna, no Interest, in Covlrm, save a friendly one. The audience as a whole enjoyed the really meritorious program. The audience applauded the numbers. But tl<e applause vraa not sustained; it. did not ring true with the demand for encore, although It IH safe to say that more encores would have been greatly appreciated by this same audience. The applause wan scattering; it savored of languor; It. died away before Its mission hud been iir-compllnlied; it was perfunctory and polite. Vet the audience was pleased. Covlna audiance.s take their entortainmcntH as deadly serious. Any person with a spark of retl blood cannot but become out. of patience with i.hls attitude. II is not aethetic; it is a betrayal often of au inability to appreciate or understand. It ia only because there is a sprinkling of real appreciative people In each Covina audience that the applause starts at all on any occasion. Leaders, who are known as judges of music, or of art or oratory, Justly so or not, must start the applause; and not until these "aesthetic boosters" nre s well under way do the others swell the sound of 1'ipprovnl. Why do these people go at all? Wliy do they fllo out of the hall uttering the cheapest platitudes of praise, praise a« humanly intelligent as what the par.ot said? Right here let it be said, that In a email town, applause should not always wait for meritorious effort on the stage. Generous applause la due to local effort, even though It fall somewhat behind the work done at the Auditorium, the Mason, the Belasco'and the Orpheum In Los Angeles. Memorial Day exercises In Eastern towns of the al'/.e of Covtna but lack- Ing the wealth, are days of enthusiasm and reverence alike. They are not merely apathetic tributes to the old soldiers. Applause and cheering Is plentifully mixed with the spoken words of prayer. Covlna listened to good exercises on Memorial Day, and every person appreciated these exercises. Why didn't they applaud the good address delivered, applaud the music, cheer the sight of these last remnants of once full battalions? Is this coldness the result of striving after the aesthetic, or simply apathetic ignorance? Covina has become a byword In this respect. Wouldn't it be better to wake up, to enjoy the good things about us, and give pleasure to others? SeTflsh repression is a canker that embitters all taste. And If the people of this locality are striving for the icy temperament of the Boston- ese, It would be well to remember (.hot Boston frigidity has at least a foundation, in that the culture is undeniably there, which may or may not be the case In Covina.
