PRESS NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 4 May 1901
PRESS NOTES Arizona Republican A man in Vermont recently created a sensation by coughing up a tack. We fail to see anything pecular or remark able about it. Every winter in Phoenix every man is expected to cough up his tax. Arizona Republican Bryan is surely a most unfortunate mortal. Before election he' prophesied all manner of disaster ff McKinley were elected. And now he does not even have the satisfaction of saying "I told you so." El Paso Herald If Russia and England are as anxious to avoid a fight as they say they are the best way to avoid trouble would be for both parties to get out of China. It is unlikely that any objection would be offered to such a course. A Dcs Moines young man who has bankrupt 4iis reputation by gambling says :he acquired a taste for the habit in the social card parties where prizes hung up to be played for. This is an old dodge, as old as Adam, placthe blame for our faults and frailties upon others. — Ex. Los Angeles Herald Mayor Carter H. Harrison tol...
Educate the President [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 4 May 1901
Educate the President President McKinley, s trip to the Pacific Coast may result in greater good to the arid west than may be supposed at first thought. No one in crossing the great American desert has been more impressed than by the sight of this boundless area of gray sand, broken here and there, as if through magic, by an expanse of green and flowering vegetation. This is the case in many places where distinct lines can be seen dividing the irrigated lands from the unirrigated. It is verily a realization of that old saying "to make the desert blossom as the rose." Will the presidential party in steaming across this wounderful country cross it with eyes closed or will they see the advantages of a system of irrigation which will add untold wealth, population and industry to this nation? It remains for the people of the west to unite, not only in a welcome to the president and his party, but to also' at every turn and chance, bring their attention to the wounderful influence of wate...
LIVESTOCK NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 4 May 1901
LIVESTOCK NOTES One of the leading industries of this country is now, and always will be, the raising of cattle for the home and foreign markets. On account of the high price of land and water in Southern California this business has not come so prominently to the front as some others, but now that people will be enabled to get plenty of cheap land and plenty of cheap water through the reclamation of this vast stretch of country eminently suited to this business, we will in a short time become exporters instead of importers of cattle and beef. The main facts about the cattle industry come within the knowledge of all. Stop the first man you meet and he will confirm them. On the other hand, leave the city where beef is consumed and go to the mountains and valley where beef is produced, and if you inquire among all classes you will everywhere be told that a cow is the best money maker in the world. When yearling calves sell for $15 per head on the range, two-year-olds for $30 to $40 an...

Hla Onlr Real Pleaaar*. [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 4 May 1901
Hla Onlr Real Pleaaar*. "What good does your money do you, Kir. Armour?" a friend once asked P. D. Armour, according to the Washing* ton Star. "That Is a question," Mr. Armour re\le&lt;\, "I often ask myself. I was ralsi a butcher boy. I learned to love work for work's sake. I must get up early now, as I have done all my life, and when 0 o'clock comes, no matter what's going on at home, I must get to bed. And here I am. Yes; I have large means, ns you say, but I can't out as much as yonder clerk, I can't sleep as much, and I can hardly wear any more clothes than be. The only real pleasure I can get out of life that yonder clerk with hJs limited means cannot get is the giving now and then to some deserving fellow without a soul knowing It $500 or $1,000. giving him a fresh start upward without making the gift a hurt to him. That's the only real pleasure I get out of life. And as to possessions, the only thing I sometimes feel I really own are my two boys and my good name. Tak...
It Won't Roll Off. [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 4 May 1901
It Won't Roll Off. The ops of the guillemot is one of the most peculiar and furnishes an admirable example of tbe way In which nature provides for tbe conditions of life. This bird is found on tbe coast, and tin 1 eggs are usually laid on tbe bare edßi's of high rocks, from which position any ordinary specimen of the egg would probably roll off. Hut the guillemot's egg won't do this. It has liccn fashioned by nature to stop on. The cpg is nearly conical lv shape, broad at the tiaso and sharp at the point, so that It will only roll In a circle.
