4 HOW A BUSTED RANCHER MADE GOOD AI IMPERIAL lii March, 1900, a very much discouraged man was driving through the Moreno plain, thinking of his hard luck. Ile had bought Moreno land and water rights at $ c )o per acre. The water rights had vanished and Bear Valley bonds had borne down upon him and squeezed out any pos- sible equity he might have had left in his home property. With all, he was feeling, if possible, like a man who had been killed twice. As he drove over a very familiar bridge his attention was drawn to a new sign placed upon the bridge, which read: "Good land with abundant water right in the Colo- rado Delta, $10 per acre. For particulars, address I. W. Gleason, Corona, Cah" He turned away disgusted, thinking who could be fool- ish enough to want any more of a desert than this very Moreno plain. Every day he crossed the same bridge and the sign set him to thinking. The following year found him in the Imperial Valley freighting between I 'lowing Wells and Imperial, and...

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST They were twins, though one WAS a Beauty and the other a Beast. They were begotten by the heat of the sum mer and the rushing torrents of the river. They were rocked iv rough Cradle by west winds and lulled to slumber by the soft zephyrs that crept up from the Gulf of California. The playthings of the Beauty were the birds of song and the birds of the waters. The playthings of the Beast were creeping insects anil cowardly quadrupeds. They were as unlike as two beings well could be, in nature as well as looks. In the one was all that appeals to the sense of beauty; iv the other all that is repulsive iv nature, and yet they clung to each other as iuseperable companions, while century trod on the heels of century and time became an old and decrepit thing. The Beauty did not know that the Beast was ugly. The Beast did not know that the Beauty was itsantipode. They had been close companions for so great a period that each had neg lected to note the contrast in their ...

A Notable Engineering Project One of the largest reservoir sites in the West is under the examination of the United States Geological Survey. says tlie l.os Angeles Herald. The dam site is situated in a narrow gorge, just below the juncture of Salt River and TontO Creek, Arizona. The capacity of the proposed reservoir, with a dam 200 feet in elevation above the bed of the river, is nearly 1.000. (Kin acre feet, or more than that of the great reservoir now in construction on the Nile, or than any Older artificial reservoir in the world. One of the serious obstacles met in planning for the construction of this great reservoir was the difficulty in securing hydraulic cement at a cost low enough to make the project financially practicable. About 1 .".0.000 barrels of cement will be needed. which, owing to the isolated location of the site and the long overland haul, would reach the almost prohibi tive rate of $!» per barrel. For tunately materials were found at hand suitable for manufac...

WORK AGAIN IN PROGRESS EAST OF CARTER RIVER A very important Case has just been decided by the Superior Court of this county, in which the Imperial Settle ments are vitally interested and each settler has a vital interest in the con clusions reached. The California Development Com pany undertook the task of reclaiming a large tract of worthless desert worthless only for want of water. This entire country belonged to the Government, and under the law the company had a right of way for its canals and ditches by tiling maps. The work progressed so rapidly that it was not feasible to tile these maps in advance of work. In the course of events the Califor nia Development Company made a contract with the Sunset Commercial Company agreeing that the last named company might have the ex clussive right to sell the water stock of Imperial Water Company No. 5 for the irrigation of lands on the east side of Carter river, and under that contract about 16,000 shares of stock were sold to persons w...

Harvest No* On The harvesting of barley i«. now oc cupying the attention of a number of farmers, practically all the grain sowed before January 1 now being ready for the mower. Among those now cutting hay are Rdgar Brothers, who are at work in their large tield a half mile south of town. From there to Calexico, every little distance one comes on fields about ready to harvest or now being harvested. There has been a great deal of .njkv ulation regarding the hay market for the coining year. For the time being there is no doubt that the valley is self supporting in stock feed, ami a number of farmers are getting ready to put in sorghum crops. But in spite of this, there are many people who think the valley will not grow suffic ient feed this year to meet the heavy demand of next winter. Lack of ship ping facilities and late arrival of wa ter at their ranches has led a number of farmers who had intended to put in crops to postpone farming operations until fall. It is believed that the c...
