3 niidnlnid with hnrd|>nn, is of n deep, windy character. There is quite an area of adobe lamia in Bait Uiver Valley. Thuso lands are chiefly devoted to grain tanning and are generally free from alkali. Tim land in the Imperial Valley are difffient from any utheiß with which I have ever Imd experience. It was made by the sediment from tl.e Colo* rado river, and with very few exceptions 18 of an adobe character, and watur wMI not sink and flow under ground us at Haiifotd, and in the Bait River Valley. My observation and experience in three years of irrigating in this Val ley proven to me that, while the water in our adobe soils will not sink to a water level and form an under drain age that will carry it off and take the alkali with it, it will go down a few feet in our soil and will take the alkali with it. When the water is turned off from our lands alter an irrigation, the first thing the soil does when it begins to dry out, is to cruck open, and while it is dry on the surface ...

DITCH REPAIRED As reported in last week's issue, the break in the California De velopment Company's canal in Mexico, was repaired and water turned in ori last Friday week. The Zanjero turned in 15,000 inches, however, which proved to be too much for the newly re paired break and it gave way the second time. However, it was but a short job to repair it again and the water was tnrned in on Monday last, having been out of the ditches about three weeks This experience emphasises the necessity of each farmer provid ing himself with a pond and keep ing it filled with water. There was no damage to the crops from this break in the water supply, and so far as known no livestock suffered. It is rumored that the Southern Pacific Co. is inv...

8 A Sonnet For tub Pbesb There lay abandoned of an ancient sea A desert wild, to arts of man unknown Where the traveler halted with disheartened groan And read on Nature's face Death's stern decree. The arid wind moaned through the blasted tree, Bowing the stunted sage with withering breath. Unharmed the rattler hissed its lay of death, And the coyote yen ted his demoniac glee. Behold I how altered Nature's crude design ; The plain enchanted has now burat its bond: And lo! up spring the blossom, date and vine Ah Science stretches forth the wat'ry wand.

OUR 501 L SURVEY Continued from I'airc 1 soils were most likely deposited in salt or hrackish water when this was a part of the sea, we may directly conclude that the major part of the salt came from sea water. "The floods from the Colorado river brought in other salts, particularly sul phates, and much changed the composi tion of the salts deposited from the sea." It is the experience of farmers on lands where irrigation is necessary, that white alkali is much less harmful than hlac.k alkali, and that it yields readily to irri gation. That certainly appears to be the case in Imperial Valley Of all the lands so far irrigated ami fanned there is none that shown any indication of damage by increase in the amount of alkali, and the universal report is that the alkali that allowed up on the borders and ditch banks when irrigating was first begun has disappeared. There is none of it shows on the ground anywhere, and that it has all been driven down into the ground by irrigating waters. I...

2 Our Uncqualcd Prosperity The advances that have been made during the past few years in organiza tion and invention hnve so increased production that with troth it can be laid our prosperity was never bo great. The daily papers never get done prating about the superabundance ol wealth this country has produced. Yet unwittingly they voice Hie nwlnl groan of the rave, and this, sometimes, in the same issue of their paper where prosperity has been painted. The more the workers produce the less they get of their product and the more uncertain becomes their employment. From the New York Herald of February 12, 1905, we clip the following: ••Between 75,000 and 100,000 destitute and idle men are today dependent upon the charity of the city of New York. This estimate is based npon the records and statements of those who are handl ing these men. "Thousands of men who no longer have the few pennies for a bed in the Bowery elielters are besieging the Mnni cipal Lodging House in First avenue. T...

SCRIPPERS OUT OF A JOB Staking Out a Claim Does Not Make Occupancy Scrippers-for-a-iiving nearly dropped yesterday on reading an order that has juat been received at the United States Land OfHce in the city. Mineral claim gobblers, falling dead, will be the next thump beard; a deci sion, just received, affects them. These are two of the most important decisions ever reached by this office. The one is a memorandum of a bill passed by Congress March 3. The snippers flocked in alarm to gaze at this yesterday. They see their occupa tion gone. The bill completely knocks out the business of scripping and does away with scrip. Those who bsive lnjen buy ing up claims in land that they believed to he hatching a forest reserve, will rind themselves scooped.
