Saturday, June 20, 1908 GLIMPSE OF THE FUTURE. Development of Desert Agriculture Only Begun in the Valley. The Redlands Review has issued a handsomely illustrated special edition, In which two pages are devoted to Imperial Valley and a page to Coa chella. The Introductory paragraph of the section devoted to this region Is as follows: The Great Imperial Valley — a whole empire in itself — was "discovered" on ly half a decade ago .Uut though few In years it has changed the whole cur- rent of affairs in the Great Southwest. From a desert to a vast, fertile agrl j cultural section, the richness of which is but merely imagined at the present time, is in brief the history of these I few short years. Growing crops which in variety and size exceed one's belief, almost, the Imperial Valley has come to be looked upon In Southern California, as already the home of thousands of prosperous fanners, who are to furnish the whole south half of the state her dairy products, her beef and pork, with t...

Saturday,' June 20, 1908 NO SUBSIDENCE OF THE SALTON SEA STORY OF FEARS OF PESTILENCE WITHOUT SHADOW OF EXCUBE. Inflow Compensates for Evaporation, and Water Level is Just Where it was Last Year as Seen From Rail road Trestle — Sea Came to Stay, .and is Still Here. Government observers having re ported that the rate of evaporation from Salton Sea is seven or eight Inches a month, some ignorant scrib bler assumes that the sea has sub sided at that rate and is now five feet lower than it wns last winter. Upon that assumption he »bullds a yarn about the danger from the decay of stranded fish and vegetable matter and the fear of a consequent pestil ence. The Redlands Review copies the fool stuff and heads it "Pestilence Feared in Imperial Valley." That is all rot and rubbish. Nobody in Imperial Valley ever thought of such a thing, and as a matter of fact •Salton Sea has not subsided at all. * Passengers on Southern Pacific trains, who make regular trips over that por tion of the road sk...

Imperial Valley Press. VOL. VIII. LARGE SHIPMENTS OF MELONS CAUSE SHARP FALL OF PRICES Growers Meet to Devise Remedy for Market Reaction, but Fail to Reach an Agreement— Associations do Not Pull Together — Signs of Some Improvement in Prices. The usual reaction of the cantaloupe market, which occurs in the middle of the season and is attributable to sev eral causes, manifested itself early .this week and was exaggerated by rumor to the proportions of a disas trous slump. Immense quantities of fruit have been shipped, and, because there is no cooperation among dis tributors, the market has become con gested at many points. Floods in the Mississippi valley held up trains, and many carloads arrived in bad condi tion. Prices fell as a matter of course. The first remedy thought of was sus pension of shipments, and some of the associations at once notified growers that "ponies" would not be accepted and that grading of standards would be rigid. Many loads were rejected at the platforms, a...

Saturday, Juno 27, 1908. TREES TO PROTECT CROPS IN THE FIELDS FOREST SERVICE UNDERTAKES STUDY OF WIND-BREAKS. Belts of Eucalyptus Insure Growing Crops Against Ruin by High, Hot Winds — Urgent Need of Imperial Valley is for More Trees. The government's tree planting and 'farm experts have undertaken a prac tical and scientific study of the use and effect of timber wind-breaks and shelter-belts in the agricultural re gions of fourteen western states. The work will be done by the Uni ted States forest service. In some states the agricultural experiment sta tions will co-operate in tho studies. At present wind-breaks are planted , haphazard, one kind here, another there. If one kind is better than an other, the government experts think that fact ought to be known. The sudden ruin that hot winds sometimes bring to growing crops in parts of the west are well known. Blowing strongly across the unob structed plains, these winds may in a few days blast all hope of even a par tial harvest. In...
