PLANT FOR FUEL One of the Greatest Needs of the Valley is Trees One of the greatest needs of the valley now is trees. They are needed for shade, fur fence posts and for fuel, and the person who plants trees in abund ant ought to make large money in a few years. It ought to be possible for every farmer to get in several hundred red gum or other euculyptus trees this winter, and no one ought to neglect to do so. So far there has been fuel ob tainable from the natural growth of the desert, but the supply is disappearing rapidly, and unless haste is made to grow a new supply it will be an added expense to import fuel. For quick foliage and fence posts, cot ton wood serves, but it is not adapted to fuel, and herein lies one of our greatest needs. The Imperial Land Company will put in 400 acr^s of grain about the town of Imperial, primarily to relieve the bar ren appearance of the townsite. The VERNON NURSERY A. YARNELL, Prop. 4524 Central Aye., Los Angeles, Cal. We are headquarters for a...

A Desert Idyl BY CHARLES SUMXER LOMBARD [I firmly believe that the Imperial dis trict of San Diego County, California, embracing a large portion of the des ert through which the Colorado river flows, is destined to become the most prolific and prosperous portion of the world famed El Dorado. It has already sprung, within two years, from a naked wilderness into such prominance as to be looked upon as the future granery of Southern Cali fornia.] I've pitched my tent on the desert wild, Where its gray and sun-burnt face Is scarred by the ocean's epitaph Of a strange and by -gone race. It is written on barren billows, On the skeleton beach of the hills, In the grooves of the water-courses, In the graves of rivers and rills. It is carved on the armored mountains, That stem the thund'rous storms; It tells of a race whose burial place Is where the wilderness yawns. Marathon — Waterloo — what are they, Compared with this battle-plain, Where every hummock marks a mound Where a motley host li...

CONDITION OF CROPS Grain Is Doirg Finely in All Parts of the Valley There is universal satisfaction through the valley at the condition of the crops. Since the breaks in the canal, making a temporary shortage in water, there has been a steady improvement in the con dition, and for three weeks nocomplaint has been heard from any section. With water being used in abundance, the crops are responding finely, and every v here the big grain fields are giv ing rich color to the landscape. There is in the neighborhood of 60,000 acres of grain growing under the irrigation sys tem, and the outlook is for good prices either for grain or hay. While the situation on the coast has been somewhat improved by two small storms, there does not seem to be a bright prospect for big grain or grass yields, and the result is the continuous arrival of cattle in Imperial. So great is the importation of milch and beef cattle that it does not now look as though there would be a heavy export of hay. Whatever ia...

VALLEY IN GOOD SHAPE Farms Are in Fine Condition— Cattle Being Fattened A. E. Dodson, mention of whose re turn from a couple of weeks' trip to the Imperial valley, was made yesterday, reports the country improving beyond expectation. The town of Imperial is growing rapidly and many new brick buildings are being constructed. From Imperial to Calexico, eighteen miles, the entire country is covered with farms now in cultivation, where four years since not an acre had ever been planted. The people there are very much interested in San Diego railroad prospects. Thou sands of cattle are being fed in the val ley. The crops so far have been princi pally barley, wheat, Egyptian corn, sorghum and alfalfa. At present much attention is being given to alfaifa. The Weed Bios, near Calexico havd taken steps to put their entire holdings inco that profitable feed. Hogs are doing well, and cattle are thriving, although the immense numbers driven from the mountain district, as well as from Ari zona, i...

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE Secretary Lawrence Makes State= ment Regarding a Criticism In connection with the impending election, the question of incorporation and the selection of the guiding hands for the new municipality, much has been said by careless tongues concern ing the Chamber of Commerce as a factor, not only in the inception of the whole but in the work of carrying it through, as a "machine" measure with the design of controlling the future town. In this talk that element, which, fear ing the law desires to avoid its applica tion to Imperial, has not hesitated to accuse the Chamber of Commerce of so working matters as to b-ing on the elec tion at a time that would disfranchise all voters who were not registered at the time the petition was signed, namely, January 23. For the benefit of the few who may, without thinking of the source of such accusation, give credence to it, I am di rected b}' the board of directors of the Imperial Valley Chamber of Commerce to furnish a transcrip...

GEOLOGY OF DESERT What Dr. Stephen Bowers Saw in This Country Dr. Stephen Bowers, the state metal lurgist, and Prof. W. C. Mendenhall of Washington, have returned from an ex amination of the Carriso Creek mount ains near the Mexican boundary line. Their object was to study the strata and physical features of the section, take photographs, and collect the fosil fauna of that region, which they found exceed ingly plentiful. In an interview on the subject of his trip Dr. Bowers said : "The foothills and mountains border ing the Colorado desert, about forty miles west of Imperial, are full of inter est in several respects. Their physical features represent the lower Miocene age, and the fossil fauna is well pre served. While it is tertiary, yet it is re garded by paleontologists as somewhat different from any other formation thus far discovered in California. I went over the ground pretty well two and a half years ago, when I made a fair col lection of its fossil remains, and re ported ...

Miller, of Elgin, 111., one oi the leading men in the Dunkark denom ination, who was in the valley this week with a committee of Dunkards, making a study of the situation, was most favor ably impressed with what he saw. He has for years traveled on such missions, and has not only been in every part of the United States, but has visited many loreign countries. On his return from a sixty-mile drive "Wednesday, he compared Imperial val ley with other sections he had visited, particularly the Sunnyside hritration system in Washington, where he had seen the country in four years come from barren waste to great pioductive ness. After speaking of other sections where he had seen rapid response to ir rigation, he unhesitatingly declared that the prospects for the future of this val ley were brighter than of any other new land he had ever visited, and to this his associates gave hearty assent.
