They have broken down every oienegA of Southern California—thousands and tens of thousands of them are here. Tho Ho- nevolont and Protective Order of Elks has stormed every city In the most, beautiful part of our state. It Is not only in Los Angeles that they are to be entertained, but In every town and village and hamlet, for these good fellows from the Kast (ire desirous of seeing everything. Covina must respond to the fact that, hundreds of Elks will visit the city during their stay here. They will be Interested in fruit culture. They will want to expect and have explained the wonderful country which surrounds our town. Hold yourself ready at any time to play the host without regard to time and expense. They are good fellows—we want to earn the title also. Let everyone place machines and teams and personal time at their disposal. This coming Thursday, July 15, and Friday, July 16, will bo the great days in Los Angeles for tho general public. The grand Elk; 1 / parade Is at, 10 o'clock on Thursday morning, with an electrical circus parade at 8 In the evening. On Friday there will bo a massed band parade at f) o'clock, and the big midsummer floral and allegor leal festival at 10 o'clock. Thoso are the days to seo the spectacular par- fides. In tho meantime, entertain every Elk that comes your way. You could n't do Southern California a better turn than to send those follows away feeling that they had experienced tho beat time of all tho forty-five annual reunions they have held.

One of tho most beautiful exhibitions of mural painting and interior decoration to be" seen in this town Is the work on the walls of the now Odd- ffllowH lodge in the Snodgrass building. The work Is that of a local man, A. If. Crawford, who spent Infinite pains in creating the effect. The room is well worth studying as an exemplification of artistic work. Staggers Ranch Sold. C. E. Hoyle of Covlria has sold the well-known 20 Hero grove In La Verne belonging to John N. Staggers to Dr. A. E. Englehardt of Olendora. The place Is planted to Valonclas and navels, ten years old and In fine bearing condition. There Is a seven-room bungalow on the property and a pumping plant that supplies sufficient water for the ranch. Why Not Covina? The Argus would like to call attention to the descriptive article printed this week concerning Pomona'H now park. Comparisons are generally not palatable, but here Is aii object lesson right before our eyes which wo may not overlook. Why not. a park in Co- vlna? This locality has every advantage that Pomona possesses in laying out a pfirk. Foothill hind may bo obtained that will evolve into a pleasure ground as beautiful, or more HO, than Canosha park In Pomona. Tho groat need at present Is action, definite action on this park question. Pomona made tho same mistake of delaying, but rectified It at last. Every your wo delay adds Just, so much more to the value of tho land wo" muni buy, and choutH the city out of local attraction and comfort. What aro we going to do about It ? Protection in Covina. Police work is a hard and thankless tusk. In towns the sl/.e of Covina it Is generally acornpanied by very little remuneration. Dill the property owners demand protection, and in Covina they are receiving it, for which thoy should lie duly grateful. During the 'lirco days of celebration in Covina, *'ity Marshal Mehnort and his assistants proved that they were able to rope with the situation. Mehnort is sued enters that the town should be free from noise and disturbance until the time of celebration was at hand, and these orders were, in tho main, obeyed without question. Ami, on the principal day of celebration, Mehnort WHb ttblu to keep ord'T In a way that reflects credit on his fidelity to duty. It was a hard berth and lie proved to he a uood ollieer. Although order was kept w.dl, and f,o damage to property, was done during the celebration, it iri to ho ro grHleii that the young fellows of the ( town ivi-le thoughtless al limes.

Elaborate preparations are being made by the Disciples of Christ for their centennial, in Plttsburg, Pa., Oct. 11-19. The date is taken from the appearance of "A Declaration and Address," by Thomas Campbell, father of Alexander Campbell. A church was organized by them In 1811 at Crush Hun, Washington county, Pa. The Disciples have plead, from the beginning for Christian union, and have urged the abandonment of human creeds and denominational names. Thoy are seeking to "restore tho primitive church just-as the apostles loft it. "That they may all be one that tho world may believe," is their chief watchword, and, "Whore the Scriptures speak, wo speak; where tho S .Tipture.s arc silent, we are silent," defines their position as they have ocupiod It for a hundred years. Thoy have grown from one church In ISI1 to eleven thousand In 1909, with a membership of 1,335,000. They now rank sixth among tho great religious bodies of I ho nation. In personal and family lifo, In the niblo-school, In missionary, benevolent and educational work, high aims have boon sot for tho centennial year. Five groat auditoriums, with a seat Ing capacity of 30,000, have boon engaged in Plttsburg for tho parallel sessions of tho coming convention. All aro in a compact group at the entrance of Scheuloy Park. President Taft will address the convention Oct. 10. A special train over tho Salt Lake route will carry the Southern California delegation from Los Angeles to Pittsburg.—Contributed. Cook With Gas You nre invited lo call at our new ofiieo, 2l}(i X.
