Progress and Opportunities Edition Imperial Valley Press Imperial Valley, Land of Promise What Fertile Soil,®SolarsHeat, Abun dant Water and Indomitable Energy Have Achieved in Reclamation of an Empire in Delta of the Colorado Imperial Valley is a part of the re gion, many thousands of square miles in area, that has been known as the desert of the Colorado. But like that vast country between the Rockies' and the Sierra Nevada which the old geo graphies said was the Great Ameri can Desert, this desert of the Colorado is a region of varied character, some of it arid and barron and some of it fertile, watered and covered with veg etation, even with forest growth. The main line of the Southern Pa cific, from Yuma to the pass through the mountains to the coast, traverses that part of the basin which is a veri table desert waste of sand and gravel. The road runs between the Chucka walla mountains and the surf of wind driven sand that breaks at their feet, and originally it dove more than ...

Batnrday, March 12, 1910, W. F. Halt, Town Builder Whenever men tell of the wonderful progress of the Imperial Valley, where the work of half a century has been accomplished in one decade, they speak of the unrivalled richness of the soil, of the perfect climatic con .^intlonH, of the, ample water supply- *nd of W. F. Holt. Holt did not dis cover the Imperial Valley. Ho was not <rhe first to know of Its fertility and splendid opportunity; but he has been the inoHt powerful human factor in 'Compelling this garden spot of America to yield Ha riches to the uses of man. ' ,4yMr. Holt first became interested In the valley nine years ago, when he purchased a section of land west of Imperial. While Mr. Holt expects to accomplish more in the Imperial Val ley in the next ten years than he has /n the past, victory in the larger Vnse is already his.

4 Money-Making In Clean Ways JOHN S. McGROARTY 1 do a good deal of wandering up and down the golden stretches of Cal ifornia, and wherever I go the thing that seems to possess every man Is the desire to make money. The talk la always on that line and differs only with the locality in which one hap pens to be. In the mining country the talk Is, *of course, about ledges nad veins, and every kind of hole in the ground: east of Los Angeles it Is groves and orchards; in the San Joaquln It is wheat nnd raisins; Santa Clara talks prunes: in the big towns It Is corner lots. Also In the big towns it is "schemes." The big towns are the liars of the parasites — the fel lows who are eternally trying to un load nothing for something on the fellow who wants to secure something for nothing. That these parasites live and thrive is un doubtedly true, but how they do it is still the same deep mystery to me that It has always been. When I came to Imperial Valley the talk was again on the subject of ma...

Saturday, March 12, 1910. California's Land of Cotton New Industry of Vast Importance to State Established by Success of Cot' ton Growing in the Imperial Valley. More Than Twenty Thousand Acres to Be Planted This Year. A hew industry of vast importance to Southern California has been es tablished and the economic problem of Imperial Valley has boon solved by the successful growing and market ing of cotton during the season of 1909. About 800 acres were seeded, but only abo >: 500 acres were culti vated and picked. ■ Many fields were neglected and left without water be cause they were only experiments and many farmers lack tho persistence to carry an experiment through to the end if they are not sure of its suc cess, but the fields that were prop erly cared for proved that more than a bale to the acre can be depended upon as an average crop and that thorough cultivation and intelligent management will produce two bales on fairly good soil. The total crop of 1909 was 373 bales. It ...

6 Trees, Plants, Weeds and Bugs Report to the State by County Horti cultural Commissioner W. E. Wilsie on History and Present Prospects of Horticulture in Imperial Valley, Presented January, 1910. I The water crossed the Internation- 1 al line and entered the Imperial Val ley on June 15, 1901. During that summer and fall, a few crops of sorghum and millet and a few watermelons and cantaloupes were raised. In the winter of 1901-2 the first bar ley and wheat were sowed. The crop ! was cut for hay and and went from one to three tons per acre. A number of hundred acres were seeded to alfalfa. It was a failure. During the summer of 1902, a large acreage was sown «to sorghum and Kaffir corn, Milo maize and Egyptian corn and millet. A little cotton was raised during the summer and pronounced by gov ernment experts to be excellent. ' The winter of 1902-3, a crop of bar ■ ley and wheat was raised by flooding i the fields that had crops the pre vious year, and many thousand acres were newly s...

HaUirrJAy, March 12, 191 ft. bugs are quite common In the valley now and It is hoped .they, will soon increase so they will keep this troub lesome pest in check. The cabbage aphis (Aphis Braasica) has been very plentiful in the county for several years. It attacked the barley but never did any serious dam age to it. It nearly destroyed the wild mustard several .years. Last year, a considerable acreage of cab bage was planted and they proved very destructive to this crop. I have examined the cabbage patches this season and so far, January 10th, 1 find none on the cabbage, but plenty on the barley around the patches and on the tufts of barley through the cabbage. An effort should be made to get some lady bugs in as soon as possible. The Insect that is doing tho most damage In the County today is the alfalfa worm, larva of the butterfly (Pleris Collas). However, last sea son a small Insect, said to be a leaf hopper, attacked the alfalfa during the latter part of the summer, keeping the...

8 Dairy Industry By 13. H. Sherman, County Inspector. The dairy Industry of Impcrl.il val tey began soon after Un 1 first crops wero grown, some five years ago. The first churning made .it a crraui «ry was the Bin All amount of 32 pounds of buttef, this in the autumn of I9OH, whrn there v:ore two dairymen to pro duce those ?>2 pounds. Now there are nearly 200 dairymen producing over 4000 pounds of butter a day. Why this wonderful growth? Feed grows every day In the year, so that the dairyman is not compelled to store in rammer his winter supply of feed, at large ex pense, which would necessarily greatly reduce his net income. The actual net income to dairymen of the valley j during the past six mouths has ay- I eraged about $1200 a day. Still the! majority of the people of the valley even do not. realize this fact and that 1 dairying is the quiet steady-going industry that has brought the surest 1 and most money to the valley. j Luxuriant feed does not alone make ' dairying in th...

Petition For Establishment of Local Tribunal to Deal With Valley Land Cases to be Sent to Interior Depart ment — Prompt Issue of Patents Promised by Commissioner Dennett. The meeting of the El Centro Cham ber of Commerce last Monday night was devoted to consideration of the various steps that have been taken or urged toward expediting the work of the land office in settling questions of title in the valley. The work has been slow because all cases affecting valley lands are heard first in the Los Angeles office, which has been over burdened with the routine work of a large district, and it has been need lessly expensive to settlers, who have been obliged to spend time and money on journeys to the city. The obvious remedy for this state of things is the establishment of a land office or land court of first instance in Imperial Val ley, and the Chamber of Comme...
