Last wluter was the coldest known Jn Imperial Valley since the keeping of weather records began and this spring and early summer show the highest temperatures on record. In November, December and January the range between high and low tempera tures was greater than usual. The lowest record was 1 26 degrees, which was six points lower than the lowest of the previous winter. Old timers remember a similar winter of seven years ago. but there are no records to verify their recollections. Therqr have been but two slight showers this year, aggregating less than a tenth of an inch of rain. Last year three quarters of an inch of rain fell during the corresponding period.

Beginning with February, the weath er has been just a month in advance of the normal this year, as anpe...

The blame Is all mine, in as much as I was laboring under the im pression that the train for Imperial Valley left Los Angeles at 8 o'clock, aa was the case when I left here a short time ago, and the arrangements were made accordingly. The party arrived in Los Angeles about 6 o'clock from San Bernardino County, and It was then too late for the other mem bers of the party to be reached, and to make the train, although Judge Works narrowly missed it. When I left the valley three weeks ago, I was at sea as to the gubernator ial situation,, as most every one else was, but after traveling with Mr. Johnson for a considerable time, see ing the enthusiasm that he evokes cv- ery...
