COVINA RANCHERS' PICNIC. Farmers' Club Spent Last Saturday at Walnut Creek. The Covltia Farmers' Club picnic was attended by about fifty people last Saturday, and a most enjoyable time was Indulged In. The picnic dinner was exceptionally fine and embraced alt the good things of the season. Ben. T. Thorpe, the popular president of the club, came home from the North to attend the picntc. Speeches were made by several members of the club and the whole club joined in singing old familiar songs, telling stories and visiting with each other. Several outside guests were present, including Mr. and Mrs. Vere Goldthwaite. The next meeting of the club will be at the residence of C. E. Bemis. Knights of Pythias. The Knights of Pythias have organized a lodge in Coviha and extend an invitation to all K. P.'s in Covina and neighboring towns to meet with them next Monday evening, June 29th.

All Should Visit the Exposition. What the Pacific coast region can do lias never been better told than by the Alaska-Yukon-Paciflc Exposition, now in progress at Seattle. One hundred Californians, under the auspices of the California Promotion Committee, and other commercial organizations of California, went to the exposition in a magnificent special train, and they have returned filled with the vast importance of this exposition as an educational factor in the development and upbuilding of the coast. What these hundred Californians u :' • have seen should be seen by every f-_ | Californian. The exhibits equal those of any exposition ever heid, and in addition to having most of the things that have been seen in other expositions, there are many that have never teen featured before. Everyone who visits this exposition cannot fall to return to his home with a higher sentiment of loyalty to. his country and t- feeling of pride in his own state. The various government buildings and exhibits are worth going across the continent to see, and the California building and exhibit is unsurpassed by any state exhibit at the fair. The men who went with the California Promotion Committee, and the committee itself, join in urging a large attendance from California. California is equally interested with Washington in making this exposition a grand success. The exposition merits the attention of everyone, and has surpassed the expectations of all who visit it. Everyone looks forward evory year to an outing, and this year no better outing can bo planned than a trip to the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition, for by doing this you are not only being educated regarding the on tire Pacific coast region, but you are helping California by helping "Wash Ington. Catalina Island Notes. The regular season sit this charming watering place was opened on Satnr day last, when a grand concert by the celebrated Catalina band was given in -the open air amphitheater, which has seating accommodations for four thousand people. This splendid band, under the direction of those old public favorites, Porter and Kammermier. won the continued applause of the audience, which consisted of a thousand visitors and the whole population of Avalon. After the concert, dancing was kept up in the pavilion until 12 o'clock. Over one hundred thousand dollars Is being spent in improvements, ad- fling to the natural attractions of thin place, which together with the free camping grounds and excellence of the fishing, is already causing u largt- influx of visitors, and from the number of applications at the Santa Catalina Island Company for camping privileges, tliis season promises to lie a rtcord-breakur. Honest Values i I heard a man say he used to work in a band where the loader got a hundred dollars a week, and he got (en dollars a week—"but he got his." Lots of people, buy an article and think they are getting two dollars' worth of merchandise, when it's almost a cinch they are not getting 1 good value for their dollar. It's just as easy for a card writer or an advt. writer to say "This article $7.50, reduced from $20," as it is to say "This article is 4*7.50 and pays a profit at that price," which is the truth, for landlords, lighting companies or sales- folks must be paid, and vrry few merchants are in business exclusively for their health. It's all a mistake. It's nil a confidence game to get between you and your bank account,. The department stoves and the kike stores originateel the idea, and a lot of good but misguided merchants are copying. If | every honest man and would discourage-it. it. would n mean much more to the rising generation than the closing of ^§ m race tracks, the protection of vice, the closing of the saloons, or the abandonment of many of our so-called evils. For it is teaching dishonesty and forcing our pom 1 boys and girls who work in stores to be untruthful ami dishonest, in order to earn their daily bread, and the price paid is hardly sufficient to keep B body and soul together. Is it any wonder employees steal, when they sec their employer doing it, evry day? Ts it any wonder young men go out in the world and become corrupt politicians or confidence men, when they have been educated along these lines by so-called reputable business houses? It, must be stopped, but one man can not do it single-handed. Every fellow in our stores is told if be misrepresents an article he will lose his job. Every dollar shirt is marked $1.00. You arc not told they are worth $2.00 or $2.50, for they are not. • They arc the best dollar-shirts we can buy to sell at $1.00. It's a wonder to me people don't get sick of hot air all the time. Chief of Police Dishman said the other day that 25000 people in Los Angeles livn off suckers, and he didn't count the kikes on Main street either,, When you're buying goods here you're not taking chances. I've a new lot of suit cases in Jap straw at $2.45, and trunks W from $5.00 up that, look good to me. My straw hats are a good deal lower priced and just as good ns those my city competitors ask a dollar more for. I've as good a lim 1 of underwear ;is any store anywhere, unioiis ami two-piece. I'oys' I'oronsknil al 25c is a splendid value. Blouse linons are in demand and we show the newest things at 25c up. , Also Tndianheads at 12 1 '-c. all colors. AVhy not look at Innne first?

It can't possibly get dirty Inbide. And if the title gets Boiled—soap and water and a brush cleans it. Why sleep on a mattress filled with dead animal hair? The very fact that it needs picking to pieces to clean It of dirt (arid the germs stick I) should be enough to sicken one against it, for CLEANING HAIR IS A DIRTY JOB. !.. : . '•,. '' -.
