IMPROVING WAGON ROADS TIIICKIC is naturally nn opportunity ■ for Considerable improvement to the wagon roads leading BCrosa the Imperial Innds, ns well an to the roads leading to the colony from various points, and plan* are maturing for im provement* in a number of direction*. The mosl important of the roads is that from Flowingwell, over which by far the greater portion of the freight is brought in, and on which the Stage comes. The Southern Pacific railroad has never favored that road, because Flowing well is on a heavy grade, nud it wished the Imperial freight and passengers to leave the road at Old Heach, about three miles east of Flow well, and an arrangement has been perfected whereby the change will be made at once. This will be an im provement for almost everytmdy. There is about three miles of very heavy ruind to be crossed in coming from Plowingwcll, and at least two thirds of that will be dispensed with on the new route, which will be but a trifle longer than the old Hue...

Well located lots in such towns and cities in a very few years become very valuable. Such lots at first sell at a nominal price, and within five to ten years some of the business property is val- ued at from $100 to $500 per front foot or more. The best cities in Southern California (outside of Los Angeles) are not backed by more than from 10,000 to 25,000 acres of irrigated lands. Riverside, Redlands and Pomona are samples of this class of cities^ The towns of Imperial, Paringa, and Calexico, in the Imperial Settlements, are now placed on the market and the lots are offered for sale at nominal prices.

Imperial Press AND FARMER. VOL. 1. THE DELTA INVESTMENT COMPANY. CAPITAL STOCK $500,000, ASSETS $600,000, SURPLUS $JOO,OOO A STRONG CORPORATION FORMED TO ASSIST IN DEVELOPING THE IMPERIAL SETTLEMENTS. A new corporation has been formed on a solid financial basis that will take a very active part in developing the resources of the Imperial Settle ments. This corporation is composed of some very solid business men, mostly citizen of Los Angeles, and the property held by the corporation when it starts business is ot a substantial character that will increase in value rapidly as the Imperial Settlements increase in population and wealth. Any one can readily ascertain this fact by examining into the financial status of the California Development Company and the Imperial Land Com pany one year ago, and compare the standing then with their status today. Also by comparing the values of land and water rights in the Imperial Set tlements one year ago with their values today. N. W. Stowell, an ...

THE LAND OF SUNSHINE. THE WORLD'S WORK. TWO FOPULAR MAGAZINES SPEAK IN GLOWING TERMS OF IMPERIAL IMPROVEMENT. LOOKING BACKWARD FROM 2001. THE BLOOMING OF A SAHARA. THE NILE OF THE WEST. The October number of The Land of Sunshine, Southern California's popular magazine, contains an illus strated article under the title of "The Desert Translated" that so forcibly presents the case of looking back upon the Imperial Settlements from the beginning of the next century — one hundred years hence — that we are constrained to give the article entire without comment. The illustrations are three in number. First, the virgin desert; second, the reclaimed desert — a sorghum field of two weeks' growth; and third, a view of the main canal that furnishes the water that makes it possible to convert the first into the second. This article is as follows: LOOKING BACKWARD. "One hundred years hence the newspaper scribes of the Pacific Coast will be engaged in telling the wonder ful things whic_ marked th...

WEATHER AT IMPERIAL No country on the face of the earth could have a more delightful climate than that of Imperial at this season of the year. During the nights mercury registers a minimum of from 42 to 48 degrees above zero, making it comfor table to sleep in the houses with two blankets over one, while those who prefer sleeping out of doors, as many do, wish three or four blankets, foi old settlers of warm countries have thin blood. At sunrise the mercury approaches t>o degrees and the clear, bracing at mosphere makes one feel that life is truly worth the living. Up to 11 o'clock the temperature has not risen to much, if any, above 70, and it...

WORKING FOR RAILROAD About the first thought that occurs to any person viewing the Imperial tract and noting the great develop ment work in progress is the need of a railroad. That a railroad will come in the near future seems a certainty, but the requirement of the times to hasten the building of the road is that every man having an interest in the valley should do his utmost to secure the road. Two railroad projects are already under consideration. One of these provides for a road from Calexico through Paringa, Imperial and Ranch erita to a junction with the Southern Pacific, with a branch through East side, thus leading on to Los Angeles. The othor is the projected San Diego and Eastern railroad. The latter may be built. It is a large enterprise. The former must and will be built, because it is not a gigantic undertaking, and because the interests of the Imperial settlements demand imperatively close communi cation with the metropolis of Southern California. Just what step will b...

STOP, H THINK, - ACTl'l- THERE are thousands of people in Southern California today who have money to invest and who are looking for investments. There are other thousands who are not, strictly speaking, looking for investments, but who would be glad to put a little money where it would do the most good. The attention of both classes is called particularly to the rapid development now in progress in the settlement of 500,000 acres of land under the Imperial Canal System in the eastern portion of San Diego county. This settlement is no boom proposition. It is founded on the largest and most fertile tract of irrigable land to be found in arid America. The Imperial Canal System is what its name indicates — the most abundant supply of water that can be used for irrigation purposes in America. Not only is the water abundant, but it is cheap. Experience shows that 500,000 acres of such land, when under cultivation, will support a popula- tion qf from 150,000 upwards. Such a population mus...
