WORK ON LAST SIDE The time has come when active work is to U- begun on the irriga tion system for the lands cant of the Carter river. Some months nitlCC« the California Development company, being anxious to free itself of Home of the details of the great work of placing water on the lands under the canals being constructed, entered into a con tract with the Sunset Commercial company, whereby the latter was to construct the distributing sys tem, up to an amount not exceed ing $1 an acre, to cover 100,000 acres. The Commercial company be gan the sale of water rights, hav ing disposed of 15,000 shares of water stock to cover 15,000 acres of land thus far filed on on the east side. Nothing, however, has been done toward the work of constructing the distributing system, and meanwhile the own ers of water shares are growing eager for the water which they have expected by this time.

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.

Imperial Press AND FARMER. VOL. 1. CULTIVATION OF ALFALFA. WHAT GOVERNMENT EXPERTS HAVE TO SAY ON THE SUBJECT.— APPROPRIATE TO ARID COUNTRIES. Heat, Moisture and a Fertile Soil Necessary. — Imperial the Place* Cultivation of Alfalfa. The government has recently issued a bulletin giving full information rel ative to the cultivation of alfalfa that will be of interest to many who pro pose growing this crop, and who have had little or no experience in this line of farming. We publish herewith co pious extracts from that bulletin tak ing that portion suited to the condi tions as we find them here in South ern California. During the next few years hundreds of thousands of acres will be planted to alfalfa in the Im perial Settlements in San Diego county under the Imperial Canal, and this work will commence this fall, when probably from 50,000 to 100,000 acres will be planted in that section, following is the information on this subject given by the Agricultural De partment of the governme...

2 two, so that the hay in the middle will have a chance to dry. The cocks must be small enough to allow the air to get to every part of the hay. If the weather is hot and dry, the alfalfa will soon be throughly cured, and there will be no danger of its molding or heating. The curing process may be materially hastened if a tedder is used before tne hay is raked, espe cially if the growth is a very rank one. The value of the hay will de pend upon its being well cured before the leaves have commenced to drop off. An alfalfa stack will not turn water as readily as red clover or tim othy. A hard, soaking rain will often decrease the value of the hay one half, so that at an average price of $10 per ton the loss will amount to $5 per ton in feeding value. Where the land is under irrigation, the field should be flooded immediately after the first cutting and again after each subsequent cutting during the season, unless there have been rains. Thie number of cuttings will vary from two to thr...

his domestic stock, but he is at the same time enriching his fields, and doing it with a fertilizer, which if pur chased in the market, would cost a great deal of money. When this crop is plowed under, or is fed to stock and the manure is returned to the ground, it supplies a large quantity of nitrogen, which is especially valu able for small grains, grasses and root crops, and which the latter are unable to acquire from the air for themselves. The percentage of nitrogenous com pounds found in the plant varies con siderably, the maximum being in the early stages of its growth and the minimum about the time the seed commences to ripen. Hence, hay cut early, especially before the plant be gins to bloom, is more nutritious, though mucn smaller in quantity, than that cut a-cer the plant has be gun to bloom. Summary. Alfalfa seed weighs 60 pounds to the bushel. For hay crop sow 16 to 25 pounds of seed per acre. For a crop of seed sow 14 to 18 pounds to tne acre. oow clean seed. North of ...

4 DAIRYING IN CALIFORNIA. The California Cultivator, a paper that is well posted and very reliable on agricultural matters, has this to say on the question of dairying in California: Very few branches of the farming industry in this State have advanced with more rapid strides than the dairy. Not very many years ago Cali fornia imported the bulk of her but ter and cheese, trainload after train load coming across the Rockies from the fertile plains of the Middle West. With the advent of Eastern farm ers and improved methods, this state of affairs changed but the recent dry seasons came and in spite of every thing that could be done it seemed as though the dairy industry of the State was doomed. The papers were full of advertisements offering milch cows for sale. The dairyman won dered where he was going to secure sufficient food for his stock, as the hign price of alfalfa made it of more profit to sell as hay than to feed for milk. So, taken all in all, the dairy industry of the State...

5 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 Impe rial valley is almost a duplicate of Lower Egypt, it is interesting to com pare the New Egypt with that in which the seed of our civilization first geimi uated. 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 sea flojr — 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, hill bordered valley to the Med...

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.

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 per manent population has existed here. Mrs. Dryden reached the valley about two weeks ago, having driven with her husband and two small sons from Car thage 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 in terred in a spot selected as a temporary sepulcher. Coming Business Noises It is understood that a hardware store, drug- store and harness shop will be added to the business houses of Im perial soon.

8 Pen Pictures WHEN the stranger reaches Flow ingwell in the evening for his first stage trip of thirty miles across country, he finds his ideal of the des ert. A few miles to the east is the chain of drifting sand hills which form the eastern boundary of the Im perial valley. To the north are the barren Chuckawalla mountains, and his eye can trace for miles, along the base of the hills and mountains the beach of the old ocean, long banished from the valley. The railroad itself traverses the worst portion of the desert — that ly ing just below the old beach, where the dissolution of the mountains has strewn granitic sands and boulders, making traveling difficult for teams and suffocating for passengers in cars. Were the trains to pass over the des ert a very few miles further from the beach, it would be possible to keep the car windows open and thus render the passage across the valley more endur able. It requires about an hour for the stage to cross the three miles of sand south of...

ANOTHER REAL ESTATE BOOM CONDITIONS OF J9OJ COMPARED WITH THOSE OF 1886 AND LESSONS DRAWN THEREFROM. Docs History Repeat Itself? Is Southern California Entering Upon Another Period of Real Estate Speculation. L. M. HOLT IN LOS ANGELES EXPRESS. It is said that history repeats it self. If this be true is it not possible that Southern California may soon experience another real estate boom such as took possession of this coun try during the years 1886-7-8? Such a period of business activity may not necessarily culminate in a town lot craze, but real estate speculation may run wild without that crazy accom paniment. Similar conditions are liable to pro duce similar results. Let us compare the conditions of 1886 with those of 1901, and see wherein they resemble each other. In 1886 there were several impor tant features that tended to create an active real estate market and busi ness activity. First — The entire business world had passed through the financial panic of 1873-75 and had full...

10 ALFALFA AND BEEF CATTLE. We publish on another page ex tensive extracts from the U. S. De partment of Agriculture on the Cul tivation of Alfalfa. The cheap and fertile lands of the Imperial country are especially adapted to the culti vation of this plant and therefore af ford remarkable advantages for stock raising of all kinds. The following in teresting article on the value of al falfa to the beef cattle industry is copied in full from a recent copy of the Tulare Times: The price of beef cattle, and of milk, cream and butter, is going to make the alfalfa lands of the San joaquin valley very valuable in the future. Already the free range is practically exhausted in every part of the country and the drouths that af flict the arid region makes it a very great speculation to undertake to grow cattle there. The population of the United States is increasing very rapidly and all are beef eaters, con sequently there is not the slightest risk in an over-supply of beef cattle. The irriga...
