Emery, of San Diego, who for three years was the deputy county assessor for the Imperial Valley.

A Mo(hfr'« Arguments •The most to be regretted act of my life/ Mjn a commander of the navy, "was a letter I wrote to my mother when about seventeen years of age. Bhe always addressed her letters to me es 'my dear boy.' I felt at that time I was a man, or very near It, and saying that her constant ad dressing me as n 'boy' made me feel displeased. I received In reply a letter full of reproaches and tears. Amon* •Other things, she said: 'You might grow to be as big as Goliath, as strong as Samson and as wise as Solomon; you might become ruler of a nation or em peror of many nations, and the world might revere you and fear you, but to your devoted mother you would al ways appear In memory In your Inno cent, unpretentious, unsclf conceited tinpainpered babyhood. In those days when I washed and dressed and kissed and worshiped you, you were my idol. Nowadays you are becoming part of a gross world by contact with it, and 1 cannot bow down to you and worship .you, but If there are manhood ...

THE HOME TOWN The Community is a Social Organism With Interests So Inter- Woven That Every Individual Profits by Loyalty to the Community as a Whole The simple barbarism of primitive man made each Individual almost wholly independent of his fellows, ex* cept as they might have to unite for defense against attack from a common enemy. Modern society presents an entirely different condition. Inde pendence has been succeeded by Inter dependence. The complex conditions of modern life make the Individual more and more dependent on his fellow men. This Increases the necessity for a full recognition of the obligations of each to the all. It likewise Increases the necessity for a clearer recognition of the benefits that each derives from the all. The things without which life In the country In these 'enlightened days would be a dreary existence — roads, schools, churches, libraries, electric cars, telephones, rural free delivery and everything that combines to make up the social life — espec...

Imperial Valley Press. VOL. VI BIG LAND SALE Six Hundred and Forty Acres East of Town Sold Thursday One of the biggest land deals made In the Imperial valley was pulled off here last Thursday, when D. R. Craw ford bought 640 acres of land from Dr. J. C. Blacklnton. This tract of land lies to the east of El Centro, the west line being one half mile from the town sl:e and described as the east one half, of section 34, township 15 south, range 14 east and the north one half of sec tion 3, township 14 south, range 14 east. The sale was made through I. L. Wilson and the price paid was in the neighborhood of $50 an acre cash. There had been quite a number looking a; this piece of land, but had delayed in closing up the deal and as soon as it was known it had bac\\ sold they began to realize the mistake they had made and the chance they had lost. Two of the prospective buyers even went sc; far as to offer tne lucky purchaser a bonus of 4>5 an acr^ for his bargain. This, however, he refu...

The Southern Pacific will be lined up on one side. John D. Spreckels. backer and builder of the proposed San Diego and Eastern railroad, running between San Diego and Yuma, Ariz., will be on the other Fiom a source which cannot be questioned, comes the Information that General Moses Sherman and E. P- Clark, president of the Los Angeles- Pacific, a Harrlman property, have bought or have at this time under op tlon all of the stock and bonds of the Cuyamaca, San Diego and Eastern railroad, a road of small mileage, but of great Importance In the affairs of San Diego.

The next day the captain called me out and In the pres ence of the whole company rebuked me for not delivering the message. "I did not receive any message," I ventured.
