IT IS A LAND OF MYSTERY Along New river, three and a half miles northwest of Imperial, is one of Ihc spots which is well worthy of Btttdy, and which comparatively few people have visited. It is in that vicin ity that a bed of sharp river sand is found, covered with a thin layer of small fragments of shale. About a mile further west is a pyramidal pile of broken sandstone, though with some indications that a portion of the rock is in place. It is evident that the sand i* not related to the rock, for the for mer is of granitic nature, while the rock is of sandstone. To all appearances the sand deposit is the bed of an old river and yet it lies at a higher elevation than the sur rounding plain, and is in the form of a gentle rise, being traceable for about a half mile from the northwest to the southwest. From the topography of the country it would seem that this might have been the bed of San Felipe river, which comes from the San Ja cinto mountains, and now leads to Saiton basin, thou...

SAN DIEGO EASTERN RAILROAD Kngineer Richards of the San Diego* Kastern railroad surveying party ar rived in San Diego from the camp, just east of Campo, a few days since and gave the Union more definite in formation regarding the survey for the road than has heretofore been pub lished. Mr. Richards says that while the re sults of the survey thus far are favor able to the railroad enterprise, yet there are many things which for ob vious reasons he cannot disclose. He will make a detailed report to the com mittee, which will probably meet tiKlay. It will be a verbal report, however. "I should say," remarked Mr. Richards, "that the people must be pretty well informed of the pro gress of the work. The route out as far as trie Cotton wood is understood. We follow up the Cottonwood to Potrero creek, a distance of about four miles. Prom that point the route runs the course of the international boun dary line, and very close to it in places, out as far as Jacumba. The survey has now reached...

STOP, R THINK, THERE are thousands of people in Southern California today who have money to invest and who are looking for investments. There are other thousands who are not, strictly speaking, looking for investments, but who would be glad to put a little money where it would do the most good. The attention of both classes is called particularly to the rapid development now in progress in the settlement of 500,000 acres of land under the Imperial Canal System in the eastern portion oi San Diego county. This settlement is no boom proposition. It is founded on the largest and most fertile tract ol irrigable laud to be found in arid America. The Imperial Canal System is what its name indicates — the most abundant supply of water tfliat can be used for irrigation purposes in America. Not only is the water abundant, but it is cheap. Experience shows that 500,000 acres of such land, when under cultivation, will support a popula- tion of from 150,000 upwards. Such a population must suppor...
