If Two Worlds Should Meet. Our world is spinning through space at a speed of over 1,000 miles per mm-; ute, says an astronomer. Should it come in collision with a globe of equal size going at the same rate of speed, what would be the result ? The very best thinkers of the age tell us that heat enough would be generated by the shock to transform both of the colliding bodies into gigantic balls of vapor many times their present cir cumferences. Some have thought that in case the center of the earth is composed of solid and colder mat ter than is the generally accepted belief this might not be the case, but after searching all the leadirg authorities I must admit that I can not find a more appropriate "finis" than the following which is from an eminent scientist. Should such an un heard of event occur the heat gen erated would be sufficient to melt, boil and completely vaporize a mass of ice fully 700 times the bulk of both the colliding worlds — in other words, an ice planet 150,000 m...

8 Magic Effect of Water. Mountain water makes the plains smile. The train thunders down the canyon of the Arkansas in the Colo rado Rockies, skirting along the edge of the angry stream of muddy, swift flowing water. The Royal Gorge, not far from where the river debauches onto the plain is one of the wonders of nature. The sides are precipitate hundreds of feet straight vp 1 of gray and reddish rock with not a foothold for even mountain goats. The sun strikes the yellow water of the river only at midday: it is no more than a good leap across it; and during countless centuries of turbulent flow the stream has cut for itself a crack through the mountain. Yet despite the sheer cliffs and the rainless clime, wherever a crevice or a tiny ledge al lows the lodgment of particles of dis integrated and decomposing rocks, there the plants of the arid region find a foothold — stiff grasses, prickly woody forms and tiny stunted ever greens. How different the scene just beyond the mouth of the ca...

The Stone Which the Builders Rejected. William E. Smythe. One of the mosi dramatic episodes in the industrial history of America has occurred during the past two yean. A vast region which men had avoided almost as they avoid a pesti lence a region to wiiose claims they shut their eyes and ears as to those of the most bra/.en of Imposters — has been discovered by civilization. "Pis covered." I sa> . for it was literally a matter of finding, then of exploring, then of revealing, and. finally, of seizing upon, as men lay hold of a treasure-house. And T use the term "discovered by civilization." because men have found not only its utility, but its rare and surpassing beauty. It has now been trodden not only by the engineer, the canal-builder, and the settlor, but by the artist and Inter preter of nature. Its story has been written from this latter side, as well as from the side of its economic pos sibilities, and that story has gone into real literature, where it will live. I have no...

10 Farmers' Institutes on the Desert. Letter from Prof. A. J. O<>k. Prof. \ .i c.M.k, of Olaremont, is the representative of the State I 'ill versily, for ihe holding of Farmers' Institutes, throughout Southern Call fornia, and he devotes his entire time to that work He is one of the most conservative men on the Continent, and is over i autions in making his Statements. This is his reputation. So cautious is he that his friends were surprised when t hey saw a report of his Imperial Institute, in last week's California Cultivator, in which he deals in Imperial, its future pros peels and possibilities. His endorse nieiit of Ihe soil, water supply and products are optimistic, and yet he could not but fear that there were localities in which too much salt might be found, although, as an off set he saw with his critical eve i hat the drainage was such that probably rapid reclamation of even the tow salty localities might lie considered practically a certainty, We consider Ibis lett...

THE DATE PALM AGAIN An Industry That Will Bear More Careful Study In recent issues of thi> paper there has been considerable s.iid regarding the date palm and how they will grow in this valley. The writer sees ahead to an opportunity for some one to nuike a big" thing in the culture oi the palms, hence these further words of information. The date palm was one of the first plan's to be cultivated, it having been grown for four thousand years along the Euphrates rives. It has been for ayes and is still the most important food plant of the great deserts, and many regions in Arabia and in the Sahara would not be habitable were it not for this plant. Not only does it yield a delicious fruit of j^reat (<.hh\ value, but also furnishes in many regions the only timber suitable tor use in the construction of houses and tor making a thousand and one neces sary objects. Its leaves furnish a par tial shade, under which it is possible to cultivate other fruit tree.s which have a harder time...

Land Owners Under Imperial Canal System. THE LARGEST SETTLEMENT EVER MADE IN SO SHORT A TIME IN ARID AMERICA. i(n,Bi2 ACRES PROVIDED WITH WATER RIGHTS IN TWO YEARS— SIX MUTUAL WATER COMPANIES ORGANIZED— A MAGNIFICENT SHOWING NEVER BEFORE DUPLICATED IN THIS COUNTRY. The Imperial Tress feels proud of the record made in placing settlers in the arid lands of the Colorado DdSert under the Imperial Canal System. These lists of names under the several Mutual Water Companies tell the story. These lists contain the names of nearly one thousand people who have visited these lands, who were well pleased with the outlook and who put up their good money believing the investment to be a good one. There are doubtless some errors in these lists but these are of little Impor- tance as there are but few of them. These lands have been changing hands to a considerable extent and many of these changes are incomplete or if complete the records have not been perfected and it is from the re cords in the ma...
