Pen Pictures [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 9 November 1901
Pen Pictures SUNDAY morning at Imperial seems to be more beautiful than those of other days. There is less stirring of teams and a nearer approach to the primeval quietude which marked this wide plain until so recently and so abruptly terminated. . The little white city of the plain, with its tents and canvass houses, and the little white church around the corner, seen from a distance on such a morning, present a lovely scene, and a novel one. The church is a contrast with itself and with other churches whose spires point alone to heaven. Caught in the mirage of ever-present seeming water, the church .stands as though in a baptismal font, and points the wayfarer to heaven with its graceful little spire. But reflected in the mirage is another church, whose spire points downward, as though to draw sharp contrast between the courses which man can follow in this world, the good and the evil. The morning is not far advanced, when there begin to assemble the people who are rescuing the pl...

STOP, H THINK, - ACTl'lTHERE 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 land under the Imperial Canal System in the eastern portion of 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 population qf from 150,000 upwards. Such a population must su...
