The Imperial Press. VOL. 71? WHAT ABOUT WHEAT? Many, Persons Figuring on the Fu ture of the ValJey's Product Something is going to be done this year with the wheat crJpof Imperial valley, which is now growing, and which is certain to bring in laijge revenue to the farmers. This will be the first crop which will be handled with a view to the production of grain, and there is .to. be no dearth of buyers. Harvesters of various kinds are being '.provided. There are now being brought t > the valley self-binders and Headers in large numbe;, and at least one ci the great combined harvesters, which thresh as well as cut the grain, is to be provid ed, and a few weeks hence the harvest fields of Imperial will prese.it an inter esting and busy scene.

The Imperial Press. VOL. 11. ACREAGE OF CROPS IN VALLEY Nearly Four Times As Great As One Year Ago— With Summer Crop Will Reach 40,000 Acres Imperial Water Company No. 1 zanjeros have been compiling a list of all the crops now growing under that irrigation system, finding the total acreage to be 23,500. To this must be added 1000 acres in other water companies. In the same territory a year ago the acreage was about 0,300, as compiled by the Press, show ing a gain of nearly 300 per cent in the twelve months, while summer crops are expected to raise the total to 40,000 acres. Up to twenty-one months ago there had never been a crop of any kind grown in this territory by a white man. Following is a list of the farmers of the valley now growing crops. It is seen that there are 163 cultivated farms in Imperial Water Company No. 1, the aver age cultivated area to the farm being 144 acres.

Bunker \V. F.

Alfalfa Versus Fruit It is coming to be recognized that al falfa is a more reliable profit-maker than fruit in this state, "alfalfa" havingconie f to be a generic term meaning almost any kind of stock feed. It is not possi ble to figure out on paper an income from alfalfa which is half so alluring as the income which can be "estimated" from a fruit ranch. Nor, as a matter of fact, will any alfalfa field yield, one year with another, so large a net income as can be got from o\\v very best orchards owned by men with capital to operate them and cultivated by their owners or under their immediate direction. But for the plain, ordinary farmer alfalfa an...

Warner's Ranch Indians Charles F. Lumtnis of the commission appointed by the president to locate the Warner's Ranch Indians in a new site, passed through town today en route to Los AngeleH. He, in company with the other members of the commission, Minn Reel, superintendent of Indian schools, and VVm. Collier, special attorney for the Indians, lias been making an inves tigation of the Pala reservation lands, and making arrangements for the re moval of the IniliiiiiH. "Wo apprehend practically no oppo sition in removing the Indians to their new home," said Mr. Lummis to a Press reporter. "The young men are ready and willing to go, and the old men, as soon an they see the provision made for them ut Pala, will offer no serious objections to removal. They {ire bound to their old homes by sentimental ties, and find it hard to break away from the associa tions of yesirs.

He hun formu lated no definite plans for his work be yond the general one of beginning the work of building up a Methodist Church. During the past two years Rev. James S.

The Imperial Press. VOL. 111. ON THE EAST SIDE Beginning of Production for a Host Promising~Section It has been the fortune of the settlers who secured land in Eastsido to wait longer for water than those in any other part of the valley. This was due to the creation of a sub-agency for col onizing that section and litigation which followed. Hut after long delay the disputes were settled and water be came available for irrigation February 10 of this year. Just 100 days from the date of the first delivery of water there the editor of the Press drove through a large part of Eastside, saw a thousand acres of magnificent grain in which harvest was well under way, and talked with a num ber of the farmers who, in three months occupancy of JJie new country, have made wonderful headway in piling up evidences of thrift. The accomplishment of so much • in a short time is typical of work of develop ment everywhere in Imperial valley, but it is worthy of special comment be cause it happens to be...

MOW TO MAKE BORDERS Simple Method for Finding Contour of the Land In one respect a great many farmers in the vifiley are having difficulty in putting up irrigation borders which will make it possible to flood all the land. In many fields there are hare, spots where water did not reach during irri gation, and in many other fields a great amount of unnecessary labor is being done because the contour of the land was not followed. Among tlie newcomers at Brawley is A. J. Garot, for sixteen years a rice grower of Louisiana. lie says that at first in that State the rice growers made symmetrical oblong lands to he flooded, but finally the old borders were nil de stroyed and new ones built on the con tour plan, and he gives a very simple and effective plan for building them. He would build his ditch from the high est corner of the field down one side and then down an end, thus reaching the lowest corner. Into this corner he would let a little water, to find the level and then throw up a bor...

The Grasshopper Pest Active preparations ure being made sit Warner's for the destruction of the grasshoppers which arc appearing in great numbers and threaten much damage to crops if allowed to grow. They sire now very small and it is the intention of the farmers to get rid of them before they are capable of harm. At Campo the pest lias also appeared in great numbers but the growers believe that they will be able to harvest their crops before the hoppers attain a dan gerous size. Many of the farmers, however, are waging war against the insects by the old reliable method of herding them into ditches and burning them. — San Diego Tribune. * Evidence of Growth Of course everybody is interested in all the evidences of the rapid growth of the valley, but there is one evidence which conies home with special force to the Press.
