GREEN FIELDS AT CAMERON [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 13 July 1901
GREEN FIELDS AT CAMERON Till DESERT DOTH SURELY BLOSSOM "It has been said with poetic sentiment that the man who causes two blades of grass to grow where but one grew before is a benefactor to his kind. He is greater in the universe than the warrier or the solon, and his works live after him, even until the end of time." If all this is true of the man who simply causes two blades of grass to grow instead of one, we will certainly need invent new words of encomium for men who make tons of sorghum and millet growwhere not even one blade of grass grew before, as is now being done in that part of the country about Cameron. On the trip to and from the Fourth of July celebration last week, which was at Sal ton gate, the point where water is turned from Hie Salton channel into the main and lateral canals, we were afforded the first opportunity of seeing the remarkable progress being made by those people in agricultural lines, as well as what is being done otherwise in that section.

CONCERNING SUNSTROKE [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 13 July 1901
CONCERNING SUNSTROKE Public attention is now centered upon the appalling results of sunstroke in the East. The number of prostrations within the last few days has been unprecedented, and the percentage of mortality has been exceptionally high. The reports published in the Herald show that the inciting cause of sunstroke, intense heat, has lately prevailed over the greater part of the United States. It is chiefly from the larger cities, however, that we learn of the fatalities. Taking the reports at hand as a criterion, and considering that similar conditions have prevailed in smaller cities, towns and the country districts as well, it is obvious that only a fraction of the fatalities from&gt; sunstroke have been generally reported. The nature of sunstroke is not fully understood in sections where its visitation is either rare or entirely tin-, tirely unknown. The name is really a misnomer, calculated to mislead persons who are unfamiliar with its manifestations. The idea tha...
