Imperial Valley Press. VOL. VI IRRIGATION CONGRESS Very Successful Meeting Last Week at Boise City, Idaho Matters of Great Interest to Imperial Valley Considered and Import ant Action Taken. A Splendid beginning for the Nationalization of the Colorado River. The fourteenth session of the Na tional Irrigation Congress, which con vened at Boise City, Idaho, on Sept. 3rd, was a memorable one in many ways. It was the largest and best at tended gathering of the kind that has ever assembled, the speeches, papers and discussions were all of the very highest order of excellence and the work that was accomplished was most important. To begin with we will say that it is doubtful if a more beautiful or pleasant place could have been sel ected for its meetings than the splen did little city of Boise. All Idaho is justly proud of its beautiful capital city. The large number of delegates and Immense throngs of visitors which at tended the congress taxed their capaci ty, but everyone was cared for...

COMMENCED AGAIN Railroad Building to San Diego is Again Being Agitated For years now the building of a trans continental railroad -with its western terminus at San Diego has been the theme of many ••inspired" articles, but now comes so many new projects with such alluring promises that one is lead to speculate as to whether San Diego will not now out of its multitude of chances be able to at least draw a railroad. There is no doubt about its being a splendid opening for aya v new road and it's to be hoped something will come of these many bond issues and numerous projects. In a review of our exchanges we find the following dispatches, the first porporting to build from Denver to San Diego: ••Incorporation papers calling for the building of a transcontinental railway from Denver to San Diego, Cal., at a cost of $20,000,000 have been filed with the Secretaries of State of Colo rado, Utah, Nevada and California, by the Denver Transcontinental Railway Company.

BIRTH OF THE MOON LUNA WAS FLUNG OUT OF THE EARTH INTO SPACE. 'flke One* Pilled, Perhaps, the Great Basin Now Occupied by the Paciflo Ocean — Ijfllefti Ideas of Science as to Condition** on Our Satellite. Millions of years ago the earth was Hot the land bound, sea swept, globe to familiar to iih, but a liquid mass on* i^hich floated crust some thirty-five miles thick. At that period, says the Btraud Magazine, it turned on its axis it a constantly increasing speed that finally shortened the day to three hours. When that terrific velocity was ob tained 5,000 cubic million miles of mat ter were hurled off by the enormous centrifugal force, and our moon was born. The cleaving of so large a body must have left some scar on the earth's surface. It has accordingly been sug gested that the great basin now occu pied by the Pacific ocean was once filled by what is now the moqa. Our moon has the distinction of be lti£ the largest of all planetary sat ellites—so large, indeed, that to the inhab...

FARM ORCHARD AND GARDEN Many a parent has himself to thank, for the sulky disposition of his child. In the United States alone 9,000,000 plows are required in the plowing of the tillable land, which represents an Investment of about $80,000,000. With prime, sound mules selling re cently at as high as $237 per head, there is reason to believe that there is one line of animal husbandry that is not being seriously overdone. We are just now reaping a substan tial reward for p^lns taken in trans planting some early lettuce. The full, crisp heads are tender and furnish one of the finest delicacies for the table. Job was afflicted with a spell of boils, but the historic account makes no men tion of the fact that he had to put up with the nuisance of being overrun with his neighbors' chickens. It Is a question which is the more trying to a fellow's patience and sweetness of temper. Other things being equal, the man vith an education has just the advan tage of his ignorant fellow that the ma...

SHARPENING A PENCIL. In This Act, It la Said, Yon May Read a Man»« Character. No woman should marry a man till she has seen him sharpen a lead pen cil. She can tell by the way he does it whether he is suited to her or not. Here are a few infallible rule 3 for her guidance in the matter: The man who holds the point toward tlm and close up against his shirt front is slow and likes to have secrets. He is the kind of man who when tho dearest girJ in the world finds out that there are "others" and asks him who they are and what he means by call- Ing on them will assume an air of ex cessive dignity. The man who holds the pencil out at arm's length and whittles away at it, hit or miss, is impulsive, jolly, good natured and generous. He who leaves a blunt point is dull and plodding and will never amount "to much. He is really good hearted, but finds his chief pleasure In the commonplace things of life. He who sharpens his pencil an inch or more from the point is high strung and imaginative ...

INTENSIVE FARMING Row the rrotfictive Capacity of American farms May Be Increas ed Nor fold , By James J. Hilt J The highest conception of a nation Is that of a trustee for posterity. The savage Is content with wresting from nature the. simple necessaries of life. But the modern Idea of duty Is con servation of the old and modelling of the new in order that posterity may have a fairer dwelling place and thus transmit' the onward Impulse. The Ideal of the prudent, loving careful head of every family Is the true Ideal for a nation of rational men. The people of the United States, as far as any. per haps, have meant to follow this pat tern. It is worth while to consider how far they have been successful and where they have failed. Let us try to cast our minds twenty or twenty-five years ahead and see what will then be our condition. The main elements of this problem, which above all others Is crowding upon our attention, are three: Possibilities of population, actual and possible natur...

This fear, however, was unfounded and the Increased flow of water was turned to good advantage In washing out the I by pass through the Rockwood gate On last Thursday, just as the water was at Its highest, Rev. W. G. Conley, of Redlands, visited the heading. He saw the work of blasting to facilitate the enlargement of the by pass that was being done under the personal su pervision of Mr. Cory and says It was a great success, as about half of the river's flow of 15.000 second feet was passing through the Rockwood gate and that channel was being enlarged every minute. He also visited the old channel and estimated that a raise of one foot more would start the water flo...

FARM ORCHARD AND GARDEN Because^- n man has the hay fever It doesn't necessarily follow that he Is a farmer. The quick opening and shutting of an umbrella In the face of a runaway horse will often bring him to a stop when other means fall. We have seen this tried,* nnd It works like a charm. The hay fever victim and the granger who has n field of t belated corn are /viewing with solicitude the coming of the first froet. While our sympathies may be with the farmer, we are on the qnlet hoping that the prayer of the latter may be, answered. About the only shortage to be noted In the psescut season of prosperity and plenty is along the line of school ma'ams and harvest hands, neither of which demands seems at all likely to be satisfied. Hard times would seem to be the 'only thing that will correct this difficnKy. Present point to a 400. 000,000 corn crop for lowa this year.
