MEXICAN ELECTIONS How They Are Held. Perfunctory Votlno. Which is a Joke in Some Respects, followed by Informal Banquet Ending In Maudlin Ex hibition of Participants. L«i« F. Corrta in Lo« Angeles Exprttn. The constitution of the Republic of Mexico, framed after that of the Unit* ed States, provides for the election of president, vice-president, congressmen, senators, magistrates of the supreme court, governors of states and other of ficials by popular vote. How such votes a*e collected In small towns Is a subject of no little In terest, even to natives of the higher class who are unacquainted with elec toral proceedings and who look upon elections as a mere farce. When the time for the election of deputies to a state congress arrives the city council appoints a board of di rectors for every precinct In the city, it being the duty of the president of the board, assisted by his fellow mem bers, to distribute ballot tickets through auxiliary police officials amongst every male residen...

Imperial Valley Press. VOL. VI HOW TO GROW ONIONS The Methods Used in the South Given in Detail by Best Authorities The Onion is a Good Yielder and Pays Big Returns Where Suc cessfully Grown. Below Are Given Some Methods that May Benefit Imperial Valley Farmers. The subject of onion growing is re ceiving considerable attention at the hands of our Imperial Valley farmers and as it is a matter on which very few have had experience we have en deavored to find what the experience and recommendations of other people in other parts of the country has been and endeavor to adapt these to our country. One of the most largely quoted authors on onion growing is Professor P. H. Rolfs of the Florida Agricultural College. In a work entit led Vegetable Growing in the South, for Northern markets he gives the following general instructions: Of all the crops that we grow there is none that requires more attention in the manipulation of the land previous to planting than this one does. A strong reason...

HOW TO GROW ONIONS (Continued from First Page) lings or simply pull the tops off the weeds, eirher of which might go with out detection for a week. CURING THE CROP When a majority of the tops fall it is a sign of their being ripe. The crop should be pulled and allowed to dry; this will take about a week of dry weather. If a rain occurs it will be necessary to turn the bulbs, which can be done by using a garden rake with dull teeth, but rain is apt to bleach the crop and so damage the sale. This is best prevented by taking the crop to a curing shed, which simply needs a roof to keep the rain off and possibly some movable sides for rain breaks to pre vent a driving rain from beating in. The tops should not be removed until they are dry when they break easily and can be stripped off without difficul ty. It is usually better to push the crop forward as early as possible. The maturing may be hastened somewhat by knocking the tops over. As soon as the roots loosen their hold on the ground...

HOW TO GROW ONIONS (Continued from Page Two) the sun or open air until all the tops are dead they should be carefully tak en to a convenient shade, barn or un der trees and all the tops removed. It may require a week or two for the tops to become sufficiently dry for removal. They should not be exposed to a hot sun ioo long nor should they be neg lected and left In the ground too long; if it should rain on them after matur ing it will cause them to start new growth and ruin the crop for marketing. If they are to be kept any length of time they should be spread out six or eight inches deep on shelves made of Ix 4 Inch on edge and have plenty of air. Handle them as though they were ripe peaches and you will receive your reward on sales day.

ROMAN MILLIONAIRES Vh.o nMa«menon of Hammotli Foa» , v . — « tunes Not a New . Thins:. While. It-Is -not- a -very tangible con solation to those of us who belong to the less favored class commercially, there is at -least a sort of historic com fort in knowing that the phenomenon of mammoth fortunes is not a new thing. A magazine writer goes back to an cient Rome, when there were no rail roads or . trusts or corporations, and gives some figures on the individual fortunes of that day which might look attractive even to some of our modern plutocrats. >' Seneca, the philosopher and author, was worth $17,500,000; Lentulus, the augur, $10,000,000; Crassus, the poli tician who formed with Caesar and Pompey the first triumvirate, had a landed estate of more than $8,000,000; the emperor Tiberius left a fortune of $118,000,000, which the depraved Calig ula got rid" of in less than a year. A dozen others had possessions that ran Into the millions. It is true that these Romans did not "make"...

THE LODGE. Im Many Towni it Baa Become the Great Social Center. The lodge has become the social cen ter of many a town. It is so to a greater degree perhaps in the west than in the east. On the plains dis tances between population centers are greater, the ties of old family acquaint ance are lacking, the fraternal order is the^me thing that knows no barrier of wealth or position. The fact that many of the orders admit men and women to their membership on the same terms adds to the strength of the social claim; it also brings about odd situa tions. "I am going downtown tonight," re marked a country town banker one fevening to his wife. "The lodge meets this evening.*' "That will leave me alone," was the response, "for Anna" (their one serv ant) "is going to lodge too." 4 'Yes," agreed the husband. "We be long to the same lodge." This very equality brings about a comradeship that in the newer commu nities makes easier the ways of life, ■^bu have an employee In your office or store. He...

VI RETURNS ON MELONS El Centro Cantaloupe Growers Get Remit tances for Part of Their Crop « Eighteen Carloads Bring Average Price of $1.38 per Crate Net to Growersr It is Believed Entire Crop Will Average a Dollar a> Crate. The returns for the cantaloupes shipped from El Centro have all been received and accounted for except four cars and returns from them are expected at any time. The returns for the first cars shipped were, of course, very favorable, as the earliest cantaloupes brought fancy prices. Then came a time of low prices, the net returns not bringing the growers much more than their expenses. This caused deep dissatisfaction, as it was totally unexpected and entirely at var iance with what the growers had been led-to expect. Now, however, later returns ara at hand and they are much more favorabble. We have the list of the last 22 cars shipped by the El Centro Cantaloupe Growers' Associa tion, with net returns from 1 8 of them and present the...

IRRIGATION CONGRESS Ancient Schemes of Egyptians and Asiatics Pale Into Insignificance in Comparison With Modern Works Bj ProffMor Edpar L. Larkin.

Governors of several states will speak ; also a number of Unit ed StAtes senators and congressmen. Officers of the National Reclamation Service, one of the most important bu reaus of the government, will also be present and show how the work is pro gressing throughout "our mighty West." I use the word "mighty" purposely, for I have actually met persons having no conception of our mighty West nor its mighty possibilities. I attended the thirteenth session of the congress, in Portland, last August. Somewhere along in the middle of the week I began to hear about the outlines of a most magnificent Western Empire, "bigger than Rome," in our glorious West. The new empire...

He plants In the tfprlng of the year and I plant the seed here on the Ist of October and transplant In December and mature them In April wh«n the markets all over the United States are bare of on ions, which allows ours to bring a fair ,prlce.
