ous conduct of the mighty river, which leaped its muddy banks at the "second ' ntake," sixteen miles below Yuma, Is familiar to readers of The Times. An unfortunate and unwarranted cut was made by tie California Developmen company, under Its former administra tion, In the west bank of the river, at a point only a short distance below the original Intake at the boundary line, with the fatal result that the entire vol ume of tha river's tremendous flow left Its natural channel, sought the low er plane thus opened for It. and took its resistless way down Into that re markable depression which constitutes - basin of the so-called "Salton Sea," iylng below the level of the Pacific Ocean. In consequence, the bed of the Lower Colorado Is being steadily transformed Into a grass-producing cattle ranch. But a determined effort Is now making by the reorganized Cal ifornia Development company, under that man of action, Col. Epes Ran dolph, backed by the Southern Pacific company, to repair the t...

A gang of H«venty men came in from Yuma last week and went to Sharp's to put in the anron under the Alamo watte gate. Material has been ordered for the new Methodist Church, and work will l>e rushed on that structure immediately .upon its arrival. At the school election held last week, J. A. Morrison was elected to fill the three year term, vice K. H. McCollurn, whose term expires soon. . A special train bearing a number of 8. P. < illcials, came in last Tuesday morning and remained tibout two hours. It is thought that their visit has some import to Calexico. An exploring party left last Tuesday for Volcano lake with a view to ascer taining to what extent tho water is com ing this way, and if possible remove any obstructions that may be impeding the discharge of water to the Gulf.

Imperial Valley Press. VOL. VI BRAWLEY AND THE NORTH SIDE The Firft Valley Community to Take Up Intensive Farming A Splendid District, Peopled by Progressive Farmers, and Possessing Thrift and Prosperity Beyond Its Neighbors. On last Monday we. had the good fortune to visit Brawley and spend the day In driving about the country and seeing the splendid farms with which that town Is surrounded. We were accompanied by Mr. A. Latson, the cantaloupe expert, who Is In the Valley to represent the firm of L..M. Lyon & Co., the great commission merchants who handle the output of the various Cantaloupe Growers' Associations of this Valley. We arrived at * Brawley about daylight, as the train is always on time going toward Old Beach. About the first thing we noticed was the guests of the Bungalow Hotel, all sleeping out in the yard. As they seemed to be at peace with all the world we decided not to disturb them so we went over and examined the new packing and shipping shed of the Brawley C...

The Judge has a system of his own for raising cantaloupes and tf he ■■makes good" this year, he be lieves he will have no further trouble in holding the belt as the "Champion Cantaloupe Grower of the Imperial Valley." Just keep your eye on Judge Holloway. From Hoveley's we drove back to Brawley, arriving just at nocn. After dinner Mr. Hoveley took Mr, Latson and ourself out again, driving south and southeast from the town. The first ranch w* visited was the De, Moulin ranch, of which Mr. Malan Is manager. On this ranch the work of showing what the lands about Brawley are good for, has been carried to a better state of demonstration than on any other In the country for the reason that the grape vines and fruit trees have been planted longer. Here we saw apricots more than half grown, quinces as large as hen's eggs, figs nearly grown, peaches almost full size, besides blackberries and other smal...
