Tlia Chin m imx T0 I IIC dUIII THE BLOOD MilUon9 of little gland 9 or tubes connect the blood with the skin, and through these small drain pipes perspiration passes out, carrying with it the impurities that are thrown off by the blood. Should the pores ol the skin be entirely closed for even a brief space of time, and the poisonous matter forced back into the circulation, instant death would result. In addition to the sweat glands, the skin is provided with certain others which pour out upon it an oily substance, keeping the skin pliable and soft and protecting it from heat and cold. The blood and skin are so closely related that whatever affects one seriously interferes with the functions of the other. Not only health, but life itself, depends upon perfect harmony between the blood and skin. When, therefore, the _ . blood becomes poisoned from any cause, it quickly intd'HSMl A All manifests itself upon the skin in the form of sores and ulcers, pimples and various £Xl CftM Ski "OiSO...
NO LONGER A DOUBT [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 29 June 1901
NO LONGER A DOUBT The Problem of Irrigating the Lands of This Valley is Solved It has been stated by some that the lands of the Imperial country could not be successfully irrigated because of the ground being too level. This obstacle, however, was completely washed out of the country as soon as water was turned in. That irrigation will be a success in this valley is sufficiently demonstrated as to convince the most skeptical. The townsite of Imperial, is located on ground that is pronounced by engineers to be the most level of any in the country, and the water which reached here last Friday afternoon, although only a small head, flowed across the townsite to Mesquite lake at a rate that was more than satisfactory to the management and also to the several visitors who were here and watched its progress with deepest interest. Mr. Brown who was here from San Bernardino said that every shadow of a doubt on the question of irrigating this land will at once and forever be removed from the...
MIST PULL TOGtTHER [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 29 June 1901
MIST PULL TOGtTHER San Diego can have the longneeded line to the Colorado if the people deal with the enterprise in the right spirit. The committee that has the matter in hand will certainly take every step to promote the desired end. But if it is to make rapid progress it must have the loyal, unswerving support of the people of A all San Diego county. , There must be complete harmony in thought and action. — Union. In the above the Union said a great deal in a few, lines, . but while it is necessary " that' any progressive move have the support of all good people, what is needed more than anything else is a committee that will take the matter in hand and in a quiet, businesslike way, push it to a successful completion. "It. is a business proposition and must be treated as such if results are accomplished. We have the utmost confidence in the committee that have the project in hand, arfd believe that with such men in the lead as Marston, Boone, Grant, Fergusson and Holt, something w...
IS IT HOT IN IMPERIAL [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 29 June 1901
IS IT HOT IN IMPERIAL Heat is the great'bugaboo of the Colerado valley. Most people seem to have an impression that the summers are unbearable here because of the intense heat. This is a wrong, impn*s- , sion and was created from the fact that this has from time immemorial been known as a desert, and all deserts are supposed to blaze with heat from its burning sands, but this happens not to be a sand desert. We don't" undertake the assertion that it is not hot here, but we do assert that the heat is remarkably mild as compared with some other places. Sunstrokes are unknown in this valley or about Yuma, which place is hotter than here. Listen to the following 1 report from Chicago, under date of June 13: "Nine dead bodies lay. in the morgue at 6 -p. in. yesterday, the result of the intense heat. All were men in the prime f&gt;i life, who left their homes probably without a thought of death. The first victim was James Allen, who fell on Wabash avenue at 11:15 a. m. Tie last fa...
PRESS NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 29 June 1901
PRESS NOTES Rural Calif ornian: Riverside may well be proud of her orage shipment the present season. Out of the 19,000 cars reported to have been shipped from Southern California Riverside furnished 4300 0f them ;Redlands comes second with 2400 cars. A great record. Orange County Herald: Mrs. James Mills, of Woodham, Out., who recently celebrated her 113 th birthday, will visit the Buffalo Exposition with her son, a sprightly youth of seventy-six. She is not sure about the Midway, and will consult her pastor before visiting it. Corona Courier: Dowie, the divine, who is posing as the returned Elijah, or something of the kind, claims that he can make cows give milk. That's nothing. According to the L/os Angeles papers there are men in that city who can make hydrants or pumps or most any old contrivance do the same thing. Boston Herald: One of the big life insurance companies is going to put total obstainers in a special class of policy holders, and if their death rate proves less tha...
now to Prevent Alfalfa Bloat [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 29 June 1901
now to Prevent Alfalfa Bloat Since considerable alfalfa is to be raised in the Imperial country, the following by O. B. Whitaker, in the Kansas Farmer, will probably be very interesting to our readers. Mr. Whitaker owns the Alfalfa Medow Farm, at Shady Bend, Kansas, and, talking from actual experience, what he says on this subject should carry with it much force. He says: A great deal of our alfalfa crop goes to waste every yeai because of our fear to pasture it. A great number of animals have been lost from bloat caused by pasturing alfalfa. I have 100 acres which I pasture every spring and fall, and have never lost an animal from bloat; and am so sure that I know how to prevent bloat that I turn ray entire herd of registered Herefords on without fear. Every year mv neighbors lose animals from alfalfa bloat, ami it is from a careful observation of these cases and my own experience that I base my conclusion. I believe thi cause of bloat is extreme hunger on the part of the animal, w...
FOR WIDER STfITS [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 29 June 1901
FOR WIDER STf ITS Mr. S. W. Mitchell, who was here few weeks ago, and who" has invested in lands in this country, writes back to the Prbss from Croftonville, under date of June 24, as follows: In my recent trip to Imperial I am glad to say that I was highly pleased with the country, and the future prosi pects of the.town as well. The only thing that seemed out of place to me, was the narrowness of the streets. In a country where shade is as welcome as it is in Southern California, I do not think that streets can be too wide or too shady, particularly in a town that is likely to become a commercial center, as Imperial certainly must. S. W. MiTCHKM.,. The Imperial Land Company is in control of the townsites in this country, and Imperial was laid out by its general manager S. W. Fergussou, who has had much experience in starting new towns in Southern California. We do not know Mr. Fergusson's plans as regards shade trees for the streets, but we will probably have a plenty. The streets ...

A Juggler's Feat. [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 29 June 1901
A Juggler's Feat. Paul Cinquevalli, the king of jugglors, used to throw a fork some ten feet Into the air, making it revolve nil the time, and whon it reached n certain spot, threw up n potato which just nflixeil itself to the prongs of the fork, while at the same time through a tube he held in his mouth he blew a puff dart which stuck Into the underside of the potato. As the three objects thus joined together fell he caught them on the edge of a knife which he drew from a belt nt his side and balanced them in that position. This took two years and eight mouths of Incessant practice to learn, but It was finished bo quickly that the audience was never able to appreciate it sufficiently, and it was consequently Ineffective, so that after doing it for about a fortnight Mr, Cinquevalli discarded it entirely.- "* "When you're constipated, undigested food rots in your stomach, like garbage in a swill barrel.

A JOSSHOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 29 June 1901
A JOSSHOUSE. Pen Picture of the One In San Prnn&lt; Cisco's Chinese Quarter. In one corner Is a miniature wooden warrior, frantically riding a flery steed toward a joss who stands In his doorway awaiting the rider's coming. A teapot of unique design, filled with fresh tea every day, and a very small cup imd saucer nre always ready for the warrior. This represents a man killed In battle, whose noble steed, missing his master, refused to eat and so pined away and died. A welcome Is assured to them in the better laud If the work of man can accomplish it. The horse and rider are to them (the Chinese) what the Images of saints are to Christians. In another corner Is a tiny bowl of water. The gods occasionally come down and wash. At certain times of the year direct questions are written on slips of paper and put Into the bands of one of the greatest josses. These disappear, and then the joss either nods or shakes his head In answer. On the altar or altars are several brass and cop...
PRETTY IRISH GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 29 June 1901
PRETTY IRISH GIRLS. Why the Lasses of the Emerald lalo Are Denutlfnl. The Irish peasant girls have long been famous for their beautiful, clear .skins and healthy complexions. They owe much of their loveliness to the moisture of the climate and the simplicity of their lives. Plain, wholesome fare and rainwater for the wash basin tell their own tale. No matter how homely are the features of the genuine peasant girl, her skin Is almost invariably soft and firm, the arms nicely rounded, the eyes brilliant and expressive. There are no eyes finer than those of the healthy daughter of Erin's Isle. Soft and tender one moment, to flash with passion If aroused; dark blue, gray or brown, the Irish eye Is peculiarly lovely and possesses a luster all Its own. Long lashes shadow these bewitching orbs— lashes that curl upward to sweep the cheek when the lace Is betrayed into blushes. So much time Is spent out. of doors that the feet, usually hare, become enlarged. The ankle, however. Is usually we...

The two are tlie best of friends, and the big dog Is always watching over the little one and doing his best to keep the pert fellow out of a fight. But the other day his watchfulness failed. Another terrier cafne and yelled defiance at the hound's comrade, and when the big dog arrived upon the scene It was to behold a frantic, tumbling, snapping heap, of which his favorite was part. lie seemed to consider the state of things, then gave a sigh of patient dignity and began to walk around the combatants, keeping a critical eye on the struggle and evidently acting the part of umpire. His favorite was getting the worst of it, but he did not Interfere. Maybe he thouglA the punishment of defeat was better than any lie could bestow. He watched silently iill all at once his friend gave a yelp of real palu and trouble. Then suddenly the b...
