Some Cackles [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 16 November 1901
Some Cackles Six months from the beginning of irrigation in the valley. Imperial settlement is self-supporting in the mattor of eggs. It is a record which exceeds that of any other colony in j Southern California. Up to a few days ago eggs were imported from Los Angeles, and it goes without say- | ing that in any case the eggs were not only very expensive;, but that they I were very active by the time they • reached Imperial. The result is that from a cost of about 45 cents, eggs ] have dropped to »V&gt; cents here— the Los Angeles price. This is the result ;of every settler bringing in a tmall | flock of chickens, which now number I several thousand. While the chicken ;is not usually considered of great I value, there is really no more ]&gt;oteiit i sign of thrift in any commutnity than their presence. Meanwhile .several chicken stories ! are being wafted across the plain, and j | some of them have much interest. ! Mrs J. K. KvaiiK, for instance, in following the de...
Mining Station [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 16 November 1901
Mining Station While there is as yet nothing to atI tract the miner to Imperial, there is little doubt that in the c Mirse of time this will become an important outfitting station for miiiets. as the Imperial valley is surrounded with mountains long known to be rich prospects for minerals. Mont of those who in | past years died of thirst in this valley were prospectors for gold, and they had brought their supplies with them, mainly from San Bernardino, Los Angeles or Yuma. Now that towns are being created in the valley and water is being spread over a vast area, it will be possible for the prospctors to outfit a hundred miles nearer the mountains than heretofore. Through the Chuckawalla and other ranges t&lt;» the north there are many claims, some of which arc developing into valuable mines. In the mountains a few miles to the west mining has been in progress for years, while in the same direction, in several localities, it is thought evidences of petroleum exist. In Lower C...

Killed by a Lion San Dieg&gt;» Union publishes a dispatch from Knsenada, Lower California, as follows: "The 'Echo of the Frontier.' a weekly newspaper in the Spanish language, recently established in Knseuada, in its issue of Saturday publishes a well authenticated account of the death of Frank Cook, a Norwegian carpenter well known in San Quentin and throughout the peninsula. The pajKT says: "In a rough ami rocky part of the mining district of Santa Catnrina in the Ko.sario section, two men who were hunting, fouiul on a hill near a canyon, the Inxly of an individual, covered with horrible wounds which had evidently been made by the bites of some carniverous animal. "On their return to their homes they immediately gave notice to the auxiliary judge nearest that point, who went to the place where the body was fouiul, and upon investigation of the surrounding lauds, a lorge cavern was fount!, which was nothing less than the den of a mountain lion.

McDonald Dewberry [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 16 November 1901
McDonald Dewberry This most valuable new berry is jaf Texas origin. It in a tree dewberry, that is, it grows into a powerful upright bush, very rigid and stout, and throws out hundreds of lateral branches which hang and droop in a most graceful manner. Wherever these branches touch the ground they take root and form new plants. This berry cannot be equaled for productiveness, as a single plant will yield on an average of 20 quarts of perfect frui». Another most wonderful feature is its extreme earliness, as it ripens its fruit fully a week earlier than the earliest dewberry. Its bright green foliage is retained throughout the hottest weather, and in California it is a perpetual green. The berries are of enormous size, deliciously sweet and very highly flavored, in fact, their flavor is wonderful. S.i melting, rich and sweet— like our best wild blackberries. It isa remarkably vigorous grower, and stands heat and cold alike. It is a most excellent shipper and will carry in most excell...

Snakebite Cure [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 16 November 1901
Snakebite Cure A Moating paragraph gives the Arizona treatment of a snake bite. It is to make a number of incisions in the flesh as soon as possible after the wound is received and to rub therein common baking powder. This is on the theory that the venom of the snake is an acid and an alkali is necessary to neutralize its influence. It is said that after the application very little trouble follows to man or lieust from the wound, if it is administered promptly.
TESTING THE SOIL [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 16 November 1901
TESTING THE SOIL It i&gt; of the nature of things] that in a new country people . should Ik* anxious t«» make a thorough test of the productive character of the soil, ami no section has in it*» first days l»een better tested than has the of ttie*. Colorado delta. The government is itself taking a liaiicl in the work by sending to Ihc settlement a representative of the bureau of soilss. to make chemical analyses of »*oils selected from many portions of the laud to W irrigated. These examinations of the soil will be of great value in giving the Government an opportunity to study the question of soils by comparing the analyses made before the land is cultivated with the results to t&gt;e obtained later by cultivation, and it is possible that some little aul may be given to the cultivators of the soil by inlorming them of the nature of the elements composing it. Hut it is an unfortunate fact that thus far the knowledge of chemistry of soils is so vague that little can be...
