THREE BIG TRUSTS I Are About to Be Floated—Telephone Trust, Stove Trust, Theatre Combine San Francisco. — The Bulletin prints a story to the effect that a gigantic combination of all the telephone Interests of the United States has been accomplished, and that John J. Sabin, president and manager of the Pacific States Telephone company, with headquarters in this city, has been chosen president of the largest and most important division of the new combine, with a salary of $35,000 a year.

Novel Horse Race [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 4 May 1901

Novel Horse Race Prescott. — A novel race occurred here between two horses owned by Dan Reams and Joe Ray, of Big-Bug. The wager was $400. Reams was required to cover a distance of twenty-six miles on a wagon road, while Ray was to select his own route, the one reaching Prescott first was to win the money. Ray selected a trail seventeen miles in length, between the two places, and covered the distance in "one hour and seventeen minutes in spite of the fact that the trail is quite precipitous at several places. Reams, whose horse was much larger and stronger, covered his twenty-six miles in an hour and forty minutes, contrary to expectations. Neither animal is apparently injured.

FOR THE FARMER [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 4 May 1901

FOR THE FARMER A Few Items Gathered for the Interest of Our Rural Readers STARTING YOUNG GRAPEVINES A Boycott Declared on California StrawBerries— Heat of Wood and Coal— Disposing of Sick Chickens Reports from various parts of Mexico Btute that unusually heavy and late frosts have caused great damage to the grain crops all over th^repub c. Wheat has suffered particularly. Fruit orchards on the west coast have been slightly damaged and the orange crop will be cut down considerably. A farmer near Phoenix, Arizona, planted one grain of white Australian wheat and at harvest time from it had sprung 1360 grains of large fat wheat. He planted ten acres of this wheat and harvested 177 sacks, each weighing 138 pounds. The single grain spoken of produced thirty-six stalks. To prevent the loss of fruit on trees by frost, the fruit-growers of the Yakima valley, Washington, are building movable fire sheds which can be drawn through the orchards by horses.

AMERICANS SEEK CANNERIES Proposition for aj British]^Columbian Combine Vancouver. B. C. — An American company, headed by T. B. McGovern and company of New York, and represented at Whatcom by W. A. Onffrey, is again endeavoring to form a combine of the salmon canning industry of British Columbia. Not only are canneries of the Frazier river to be in the mammoth concern, but American capital will to a large extent, be interested in the control of the fifteen large canneries of Rovers inlet, the Skeena and Alert bay, and the northern coast generally. Over seventy canneries are asked to go Into the new deal.

MINES AND MINING [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 4 May 1901

MINES AND MINING Sam Gardner of Scott valley is crowding work on his hydraulic claim at Hull Gulch. It is generally believed that he will have the biggest clean-up of gold for the season in Scott valley mines. Consolidated Virginia makes a great showing, but the bears still keep it down. Last week's output was over $23,000, the largest for several years. The Denver Post, in a recent issue, in speaking of the mining industry in regard to silver, said: Silver mining is still Colorado's second greatest industry. At about K0 cents an ounce many mines can yet be profitably worked. But if the price is reduced to 30 cents every silver mino will have to close down and the State will lose a product worth some $30,000,000 a year. The proposition to edeem the six hundred millions of silver dollars in existence with gold and to melt this mass of silver down and throw it on the market as bullion means nothing less than the destruction of what silver mining we have. The Phoenix Enterprise says th...

Forewarned, Forearmed. The liability to disease is greatly lessened when the blood is in good con« dition, and the circulation healthy and vigorous. For then all refuse matter is promptly carried out of the system ; otherwise it would rapidly accumulate —fermentation would take place, the blood become polluted and the constitution so weakened that a simple malady might result seriously. A healthy, active circulation means good digestion and strong, healthy nerves. As a blood purifier and tonic S. S. S has no equal . It is the safest and best remedy for old people and children because it contains no minerals, but is made exclusively of roots and herbs. No other remedy so thoroughly and effectually cleanses the blood of imA A/% purities. At the €bw wlk Ck^ same time it builds U P the weak and debilitated, and reno- < %v vates the entire system.

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 4 May 1901

Texas has a human wonder in the person of a member of the legislature who has resigned his seat because of the "general bad character" of that body; and not satisfied with this, he is saying so many mean things about Lone Star lawmakers, that it is doubtful whether any man in his county can be induced to stand for election to fill the vacancy, says me San Diego Union. While it may be true in this case, it is certainly a departure from the general rule, for a favored son to be so strong in his assertion of self-righteousness as to leave the ways of his father. About ten miles west of Imperial is found the ruins of a fort, the history of which would be remarkably interesting to the present inhabitants of Southern California were it possible to read it. It has been suggested that soldiers were perhaps stationed here for the purpose of protecting the U. S. mail when it was carried across this country by stage. If this be true it is forty to fifty years since this fort was in use. The ve...

ABOUT THE SIZE OF IT [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 4 May 1901

ABOUT THE SIZE OF IT The following, which is so applicable to this country, is taken from the Texas Farm and Ranch: Many farmers, who would othwise have homes of their own, continue to rent and move and rent and move againt, because they cannot buy as much land as they want at prevailing prices. There is a distinct advantage in owning a large farm, just as there is in owning a large bank deposit or a large amount of valuable property of any kind. But, because we can't have what we want, shall we refuse to have what we can? People in the Southwest have been brought up under a cheap land and large farm system, and have been accustomed to spreading their crops thinly over as many acres as possible, and calling it farming, and now that land is so dear they cannot practice that system, they know not haw to shape their course. The question of a large or small farm, at least, resolves itself into an alternative — a small farm or none, and the farmer takes his choice. A farmer who has not t...

HE GAVE CARNEGIE HIS START [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 4 May 1901

HE GAVE CARNEGIE HIS START James D. Reid, the veteran telegrapher who had the distinction of giving Andrew Carnegie his first job as a messenger boy, is still living. In success for April, Mr. Reid recalls the incident which occurred fifty years ago, in the Atlantic & Ohio Telgraph office in Pittsburg, as follows: "He was so determined that I became interested in him at once. He seemed to have determination written on his face. His eargerness to work and learn were very noticeable. Before he had been with me a month, he asked to be taught telegraphy. When I consented, he spent all of his spare time in practice, transmitting and receiving by sound, and not by tape. He was the third operator in the United States to read the Morse signals by sound." This, in Mr. Carnegies mind, was his best move. After long and successful years, Mr. Carnegie wrote of this change: "My entrance into the telegraph office was a transition from darkness to light, from firing a small engine in a ...
