Imperial Valley Press. VOL. VIII. CANTALOUPE PRICES DEPRESSED BY BAD DISTRIBUTION OF CROP Painful Experience May Teach Growers That Cooperation and Systematic Marketing are Essential to Success. Suspension of Shipments May Result in Improvement of Prospects for Late Market. The cantaloupe situation has not im proved materially since the last issue of The Press. The flood of melons pouring into the eastern markets reached its height the middle of the present week. With a constant stream of from sixty to eighty cars per day, the expected happened; melon prices tumbled and the net results have proved that there is something radi cally wrong in the present method of distribution to the same markets by a half dozen or more individual firms. The lesson of co-operation is one to be learned sometimes only^ by bitter experience of its lack. In the Impe rial Valley melon industry this lesson is being learned this season by melon growers. While there is almost a stand-still at present in the m...

4 MELON MARKETS PROPOSED METHOD OF DISPOS- INQ OF RIPE FRUIT. Small Crates Might be Sent to Coast Cities and Sold by Department Stores — Better Than Throwing Tons Away, Thinks Brawley Editor. A recent visit to Los Angeles and inspection of the retail market for cantaloupes ..here, suggests to the Brawley News the need for some ac ceptable method of packing that fruit for nearby markets, so that the poor er thousands of the city population may invest in and consume what now goes to waste, either on the ground where raised, or in the stalls of ex acting middlemen. When, very recently, says the News, the Fresno raisin market was glutted and bankruptcy stared growers in the face, some purposeful man designed a neat carton to contain one-half pound of raisins and took it to the managers of the great department stores, who saw the chance for a new channel of trade with the poorer rais ins, and these houses literally gave away tons of raisins to the small pur chasers of other wares. In thi...

Imperial Valley may complacently measure itself by the biblical standard set for richness of a country— a land of milk and honey. The dairy herds have expanded until the creameries are turning out from 1000 pounds of butter per day upwards, and the honey industry is developing Into one of much importance. This . week the third carload of honey for this season is being loaded at Heber and El Centro for the east ern markets. The honey is of choice grade and is in demand. It will net the bee-keepers a higher rate than has heretofore been obtained, and this, it is said, Is due to their con certed action through the recently formed,.

Saturday, July 4, 1908 HEAT IS AN ASSET WEALTH IN WEATHER THAT MAKES VALLEY FAMOUS. Impression That Summer Climate Is Sheol With the Blower on Only a Delusion Fostered by Fussing and Unthinking Chatter About Weather. When the pioneers who made Alas ka a commercial verity, returned to "the states," they studiously avoided ringing the changes on the extreme cold of that country, and the results of Immigration there prove the wis dom of trie plan. It should be that our own people do not everlastingly harp on the "hot," "torrid," or "burning" weather of the valley, giving outsiders the opinion thereby that we have a veritable sheol here. Constant Iteration and reiteration of the statement that the heat here Is abnormal, works untold harm. Men who visit the valley to work the crops take away the impression thus gained from residents who talk of nothing but heat, and the effect In all direc tions Is to lessen Immigration. The Imperial Valley has a standard summer and winter temperature, w...

10 GERMS IN WATER NOT REMOVED BY ORDINARY FILTER PROCESS. Typhoid-infected Water can be Made Harmless by Boiling — Better be ,a Germ Graveyard Than an Aquarium, say Medical Authorities. As the heat increases, more water Is drunk, and greater grows the mor tality list of those diseases — typhoid, cholera and so forth — whose germs flourish in polluted water. It Is a dangerous error to rely on the household filttr as a shield from this midsummer danger. Sir Ray I^an kester. D.r Andrew Wilson, the editor of "Health," and many investigating commissions have often pointed out that the common filter cannot free wa ter of its germs, but, on the contrary, it often may communicate dangerous germs to pure water. The charcoal filter, for instance, while failing -wholly to arrest the typhoid germs that are passed through it, often adds such germs to whole some water, for charcoal, the base of this filter, is one of the recognized germ propagating grounds. There is only one filter, the porce lai...

Saturday, July 11, 1908 INDIGENCE A CRIME. Sentence of Starvation Penalty for ,' Failure to Find Work. What shall a sturdy man do who has not "the price of a meal?" Clearly, he must go to work and earn It. Hut if none will give him work? Right here we impose the death penalty for his failure: we sentence him to starvation. He can escape this punishment in no way that is lawful: we have had the foresight to see to that, by laws against robbery, theft and mendicancy. Mere vagrancy, too, Is a crime: if "without visible means of support" a man may be sent to jail, [f, like "the Son of Man," he "hath not where to lay his head," he will be safer from the rest of us if he pack it about with him, re maining awake or sleeping afoot.
