WORK PROGRESSES Toward final Victory Over the Treach erous Colorado. Dams Across Rockwood Bypass Success ful. Water Raised 6 ft From Mr. Aten, who visited the Im perial Heading last Tuesday, we learn ed much of the progress of the work at that point. When he arrived there /Tuesday morning the third trestle over I the Rockwood bypass was just being finished and while he was there a large amount of rock was dumped from It Into the stream. Mr. Aten says the • rocks are showing above the water the upper and lower dams In the bypass and were almost to the top of the wat er In the middle one. The abutments of the Rockwood gate still hold and this Is a great help In controlling the water and keeping l» from cutting the bypass wider. The water was about six feet higher above these dims than below them and about one third of the water of the river was going through the bypass and the remaining two thirds going over the Hind dam. The Hind dam had been built up almost or quite to the top of th...

MISSOURI HIGHWAYMAN Ribs Imperial Valley Capitalist. W. f . Dolt Relieved of Snail Sam By "Show Me" Bandit A train on the Rock Island railroad was held up one day last week near a place called Slater. In the State of Missouri. A loan robber relieved the passengers of their money and valu ables In true Jesse James style. He refused to take the money and jewelry that belonged to the lady passengers, remarking that Jesse James never did so. The following from the Chicago Dally Journal will be of Interest to our readers, as It gives the experience of Mr. W. F. Holt with the road agent: THREATENS TWO WITH DEATH The holdup occurred at Slater. Mo., fifteen miles *est of Glasgow. The porter was standing on the front steps of the rear car at Slater, when the masked man, a revelver In each hand, Jumped on the step and shouted: ••Hold up your hands. 1 11 kill the first man that moves."

FARM ORCHARD AND GARDEN Reserve your dirty old clothes for other jobs than milking. The two do not harmonize. Soiled clothes beget carelessness. What a blessing it Is that nil the finicky folks In this world do not know what processes their food has to go through before it finally reaches them! They would be wilting to accept a poor er quality of most anything if It were only clean. The people of India are rejoicing over the fine returns of the wheat crop, the prospect being an increase of 13 per cent over that of the previous year To those who have known the horrors -of a shortage in past years this must be a cause of thanksgiving. Experiments which have lately been made prove beyond doubt that hogs easily contract tuberculosis by drink ing the milk from cows affected with the disease. In view of this fact the ■alarming prevalence of this malady among the hogs of certain dairy locali ties Is not to be wondered at in the least, but quite the natural thing to •expect. A well balanced...

The hitherto vexed water question be ing now settled for all time by again re turning the Colorado river to its former channel carrying the water to the Gulf of California ha* added renewed interest to this very interesting subject. The location ot the Valley may be described by saying it is sitnated just outride the Coast P.anjie of mountains in San Diego county, Calif., and diatant from the city of San Diego about one hundred and twenty-five miles due east. It lies west of the Colorado river, from which it derives an unlimited and con etant supply of irrigating water [at all seasons of the year. ...

However, the leaves carefully washed and dried can bo kept and are pood to use in flavoring coups. As a result of orders iately issued by James Wilson, secretary of agriculture, no canned meets which do not fullj conform to the Inspection label can be accepted by the railroads for interstate commerce.
