POSTAL BUSINESS GROWS More Figures Indicative of the Mar- vellous Growth of the County Seat A few weeks ago figures show ing that the business at El Cen tro's postoffke had doubled in only a few months were publish ed in the Press. The prediction made at that time that the ratio of increase would continue has already been verified. A year ago a clerk in Postmasterßrown's store was able to handle the post office business easily as a side is sue. Now there's so much business that one of the most efficient post office men in California, is unable to take care of all the business, and on Wednesday of this week another clerk was added to the force. A third man will be avail able at times, so that adequate provision has been made for the prompt handling of outgoing mail and the speedyldelivery of incoming mail. The postoffice was established in October, 1905. During the first quarter of its existence the receipts were $29.85. A year later, for the corresponding quart er in 1906, the recei...

SALTON SEA FACTS Rate of Evaporation Does Not Threat- en Early Disappearance The San Bernardino Sun ap pears to be a bit puzzled by some statements made in the Press concerning the rate of evapora tion of Salton Sea, but the puz zle is of its own creation. The Press did not assert, as the Sun says it did, that the water now flowing into the basin can be de pended on to "maintain the sea at its present level," but pointed out that the slowness of subsi dence was due to the inflow and suggested that it might be ad visable to permit the water to be lowered only a few feet. It does not follow necessarily that, because 1,000 acres have been uncovered in one district by recession of the waters this year, the sea will disappear in a few years. Salton Sea covers an area of about 250,000 acres and when 100,000 acres of land now under water shall be left dry, the sea will still be about 35 miles in length and more than 10 miles in extreme width. As the area de creases, the total evaporation a...

TWO FROM IMPERIAL Er Centro Plays Fast Ball and Holds Lead > Wild Pitching and Cosily Errors Lose First Game For Imperial— El Centro Superior All Around on Christmas Day. El Centro's undefeated base ball players took two hard fought games from Imperial this week and retain the lead and perfect percentage. •, Sunday 's game was spectacular and interesting. Broadbent pitched effectively for Imperial allowing only two hits during the 'game. He was wild, however, giving several bases on balls and hitting one or two men. The bases on balls combined <vith er rors gave El Centro her oppor tunity and with fast base running the home team scored enough rims to win the game. The feat ure of the game was Broadbent's terrific hitting. In four times up he drove four hot ones to the outfield, two singles and two doubles. The home team started the game like winners. Two bases on balls, two stolen bases, one hit and an error by Reis netted two runs. There was no more scoring until the fifth in...
