SUNBATH ON THE DESERT The fact has been recognized for many years that the Colorado desert is one of the most desirable resorts for persons afflicted with lung trouble, but the lack of accommodations for inva iids has prevented them taking advan tage of nature's remedies, and not withstanding the fact that no provis ion has yet been made for caring for invalids on the desert, many of them .ire coming here and are sharing in the pioneer experiences, while in al most every case the climate is working .o the benefit of the afflicted. There are certain plain truths which ought to be understood by every per son who comes to the desert with a view to regaining his health. It is the characteristic of deserts to radiate heat rapidly, thus producing striking contrasts in temperature be tween day and night, a variation of thirty degrees being common and of lifty degrees not being unknown. This variation of temperature is very desirable, in that it gives one an op portunity to recover at night...

THE GREAT ISSUE The Press and Farmer has been confessedly derelict in commenting on the greatest issue which has been before the people of Southern Cali fornia for many years if one can judge by the amount of newspaper sp. lie devoted to it. This neglect is probably ilue to the fact that the Issue is itself about as old as the progressive em of Southern California, though each year the issue is growing into greater prominence in the puss of Southern California. Briefly stated, this question is: Is Majoi-deneral Harrison Cray Otis a suitable person to edit the I,os Ange les Times? It might be considered thai this is an issue for th...

"Any person who knows what has been done in the Salt River valley, in Arizona, can form a good idea of what is being done about Imperial, and I can see no ground for skepticism re garding this country, where everything denotes progress. Mr. Chaffey has never yet made a mistake in an irriga tion project." It was Assistant General Superin tendent Muir of the Southern Pacific railroad who thus expressed himself on Tnesday of this week, while in Im perial. He was accompanied on the trip by Assistant General Freight and Passenger Agent Parkyns and Assis tant Chief Engineer Swayne.

8 WE ARE NOW THIRTEEN It is but a few years since the Mid winter issue of the I,"S Angeles Times presented ■ full page group of sisters labeled "We are Seven." Then no one thought of including more than seven counties, for which the pretty maidens stood as symbols, in South ern California. In the last issue of the Midwinter Times a map is given "showing thirteen counties of South ern California, with county seats; area 7m,4«>h square miles, SO per cent of the .ne. i of the State; population, 407,813, Xiyi per cent of/population of State." The most northerly of these counties are San Benito, Merced, Madera and Mono. San Uenito and Mono, more over, are probably the only counties i n the group which do not find extensive and growing trade relationship with Southern California. That the southern half of the State should have but a third of the popula tion is not remarkable, considering the recent period of growth in the South ■tiid the undeveloped resources of vast areas.

STOP, H THINK, - ACT! - 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 laud under the Imperial Canal System in the eastern portion oi 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 of from 150,000 upwards. Such a population must...

THEORETI CAL EVIDENCE. A PLAIN STATEMENT OF FACTS RELATIVE TO THE WORK OF RECLAIMING THE DESERT. The very rapid work of reclaiming the Colorado Delta during the past two years has called forth some criticism on the work that seems to ue the result of lack of information, rather than a disposition to throw obstacles in the way of making two blades of grass to grow where none grew before. These criticisms which have found their way into the public press to a limited ex tent, seem to call for a careful state ment of facts relative to the work that has been done there, the work that is being done and the work to be done, together with the methods of doing that work as viewed from a public policy point of view.

PROGRESS ON IRRIGATION SYSTEM By slow stages water is now coming down themaincaual.it being necessary to let the water in by degrees, that the ground may be thoroughly primed be fore being subjected to the normal strain of the running stream. It is now believed that within less than a week the water will reach the 10'j-foot drop, and that within about two weeks it will be at the large structure south of Imperial, where the main canal turns to the north. When the watei reaches that point, it will pass all the headgates into laterals leading from the main canal between the two rivers and south of Mesquite lake, and within two or three weeks from that time or by about March 1, water will be de liverable over land in a large portion of that area under the Imperial irriga tion system. The large structure in the main ca nal south nf Imperial, the last of the series, is now completed, and the car penter force, which is being increased, will be broken up into flying crews for the smaller wo...

SOME ASSORTED WEATHER The closing days of last week were accompanied with several varieties of weather, some of which were not agreeable. This was duo to the fact that a general storm prevailed throughout Southern California, the moisture being extracted from the clouds as they passed eastward over the mountains, giving to this valley only the stiff breeze, which prevailed through Thursday, Friday and Satur day, reaching its maximum on the last day. The last rain in the valley was dur ing February last, nearly a year ago, since which time there has been a vast amount of freighting by team, the whole country being badly cut up by wagon wheels. This had so loos ened the soil that a great deal of dust was carried by the wind. This dis agreeable feature is one of the passing institutions of the valley, for the abundant use of water in irrigation will soon have made its repetition im possible. Sunday morning the storm had passed by and the scene presented was most beautiful. From Mount S...
