Old Vines Dying [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 29 June 1901
Old Vines Dying San Jose.— Vineyardists of this county are experiencing the greatest loss of vines in the history of the grape industry of the valley, Many growers are referring to tne cause as some new and mysterious disease. Whatever the cause may be it has practically destroyed all the older vines of the west side of the valley. One vineyard, for example, that sold 240 tons of grapes four years ago, can now be bought for a ten-ton output this season. Conservative and good opinion gives in that the cause is not a disease, but three excessively dry years In succssion. It is claimd that the vines did not show the effect of dry weather for the first two years, as the roo*s were too deep. Now they are dying, as the moisture below has not been sufficient to sustain life. This year's abundant rains came too late to save them.

Hnrloß n Tarpon* In Life. Aniliition to achieve lias saved many a man and woman from an early grave. From n health point of view a definite purpose In life, something which the mind is bent on accomplishing. Is a factor which is too rarely considered.

"I must accomplish this before I die," has been the expressed purpose of more than one of the world's great workers.— A. S. Atkinson In Woman's Uorae Comoanloo.
