THE NEW EGYPT [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 23 November 1901
THE NEW EGYPT Great Similarity Between the Delta of the Colorado and that of the Nile — Formations of Land Made in Same Manner — Similarity of Climatic Conditions — Some Evidences of Lapse of Time in Building the Valley. CINCE reference is often made to the *^ Delta of the Colorado river, and the statement is made that the Imperial valley is almost a duplicate of Lower Egypt, it is interesting to compare the New Egypt with that in which the seed of our civilization first geimiuated. In Myers and Allen's Ancient History there is given the following brief description of Egypt: Egypt and the Nile "Herodotus, who often used happy phrases, called Egypt 'the gift of the Nile.' Before historic times, what is now the Great Sahara was covered by waters of the Atlantic. Geologic changes at last lifted the rocky seaflojr — covered, for the most part, with a heavy mantle of sand — and it became the Libyan desert. The Nile then flowed through a long, narrow, hillbordered valley to the Mediterran...
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1901. ALFALFA NUMBER [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 23 November 1901
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1901. ALFALFA NUMBER The' Press and Farmer gives more than usual attention to alfalfa this week, because the people who have filed on land about Imperial and who are adding rapidly to the number of farms in the Imperial valley re,ajize that alfalfa, when reduced to beef o.r to dairy products, is the one staple in greatest demand in the United States, promising to become more and more profitable as the years go by. Southwestern Stockman, published at Phoenix, A. T., where cattle have long been fattened on alfalfa, says: "While it is not claimed that alfalfa' is a balanced ration for beef animals, still it is doubtful if there is any forage plant that will come so near fill; ing the . bill without the addition of concentrates. This fact is strikingly' : illustrated by the weight of a cow slaughtered for Christmas beef by Greenwell Brothers, of Ogden, Utah. This animal was a high grade Short Horn, fed on alfalfa exclusively, and the live weight after shrinkage wa...

FIGHT FOR SUGAR [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 23 November 1901
FIGHT FOR SUGAR One of the most promising- industries in the west, that of growing sugar beets and the manufacture of sugar, has its very existence threatened by the campaign in favor of imported sugar being waged by the sugsr trust. Henry T. Oxnard, a leader in the beet sugar, industry; is quoted as. follows:, "I estimate that we will produce 200,000 tons of beet sugar, in the United States this year.. In ten years lam certain that the beet product., of the United States, if •'it.Jcontinues to receive protection, will reach 2,000,000 tons a year; which is nearly equal .Jo. our present, consumption.. ';',,''.. ..."Mr: Havemeyer has declared in favor of getting in raw sugar from Cuba free. At the same time, he would increase the duty on refined to one-half cent per pound, in . order to protect still further the product of his refineries.; Mr. Hayemeyer's ultimate object is the annexation of Cuba. To annex Cuba would mean American prices in that island for labor , and subplies. But to...
SCHOOL TRUSTEES [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 23 November 1901
SCHOOL TRUSTEES The time is not far distant when some steps should be taken looking to a permanent school building for Imperial, while tfftier sections of the Imperial school* district will require attention 4n the &gt; same way. This is a subject .wJaich ought to be given -careful consideration, and it is an unfortunate fact that of three school trustees W. P. Holt is the only one residing in the district and the only one qualified* to hold the office. T/he other members of the board owe it to the people of the valley that they resign the office to make possible the appointment of residents, and they undoubtedly will do so wheu the matter is called to their attention...;

Wheat for Mexico [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 23 November 1901
Wheat for Mexico Owing to: the temporary removal of-j the duty on wheat by the Mexican government, an order for which went into effect last Sunday, there is some likelihood of a car blockade at the ports of entry on the border. Already JLaredo and Eagle Pass report about ISO cars eacli. ' * "*■• For years this country has "contributed heavily 'to the wheat consumption of Mexico. The October shipments from Kansas, Nebraska and Minnesota. to Mexico were quite heavy and most of the cars exr route before ths tariff re vision had been announced. Most of these were stopped on the border to await the effectiveness of the customs decree. Traffic men estimate that no less than -5,000 cars of wheat will cross the border into Mexico during' the next six weeks. —El Paso Times, i

Sudden Death [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 23 November 1901
Sudden Death Mrs. William J. Dryden fell dead while in Calexico Friday of last week, Rev. John C. Hay being summoned to deliver the funeral sermon Saturday. It was the first funeral sermon ever preached in the Imperial valley, and the burial was the first since a permanent population has existed here. Mrs. Dryden reached the valley about two weeks ago, having driven with her husband and two small sons from Carthage Missouri, to Phoenix, Arizona, and thence here. She had suffered from a paralytic stroke before leaving home, and the trip was made by easy stages for the benefit of her health. Her death was the result of a second stroke. No provision having- yet been made for a cemetery, the remains were interred in a spot selected as a temporary sepulcher.
Coming Business Noises [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 23 November 1901
Coming Business Noises It is understood that a hardware store, drug- store and harness shop will be added to the business houses of Imperial soon. The scarcity of building-s and the tendency to hold back on work pending 1 the arrival of a brick maker is delaying the natural growth of the metropolis of the valley. Three store rooms are expected to be built at once, however.

Forest Reserve Lands [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 23 November 1901
Forest Reserve Lands The Goveryment will on January 22 throw open to settlement townships 8, 9 and 10, range 8 east, now included in the San Jacinto forest reserve. Probably about one half of the three townships will be arable land if it can be brought under irrigation. It adjoins the Indio district and is probably underlaid with the Indio artesian belt, though it is an open question whether too much land is not being filed on for the amount of water available. There can be no doubt that the artesian belt is supplied from the watersheds on the eastern slope of San Jacinto mountain and the southern slope of the Chuckawallas, the water forming in an underground basin which it may take some years to thoroughly test, but which, if overtaxed, will share the fate of the artesian wells of San Bernardino and San Jacinto.
