HAIR AND CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 27 April 1901
HAIR AND CHARACTER. Lome of the Things a Barber Claims to Have Noticed. Did you ever notice that people of very violent temper have always close growing hair? It is a fact that every man having close growing hair is the owner of a decidedly bad temper. It ia easy enough for me to note at a glance bow a man's hair grows. Then I know how to handle him. Men of strong temper are generally vigorous, but at the same time they are not always fixed in their opinions. Now, the man with coarse hair is rooted to his prejudices. Coarse hair denotes ob■tinacy. It is not good business policy to oppose a man whose hair is coarse. The eccentric man has always fine hair, and you never saw a man of erratic tendencies who at the same time had' a sound mind who was not refined in his tastes. Fair hair indicates refinement. You may have noticed tbut men engaged in intellectual or especially in antithetic pursuits, where delicacy is required, have invariably fine, luxuriant hair nod beard*. The same men....
Betting; In Chapel. [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 27 April 1901
Betting; In Chapel. "I don't believe in this compulsory chapel attendance at schools and colleges," a young college graduate was heard to remark to a group of friends the other day. "I know when I was at school there was more gambling among the students during one church service than there was at half a dozen ball games. They didn't post the numbers of the hymns, you know, and the boys used to bet on whether they'd be odd or even. The chances were about equal except at holiday services. Then, as they'd usually sing 'America,' which wns No. 554, the backers of even numbers had to give long odds. I cleared what seemed a small fortune one Washington's birthday when the preacher upset the talent with tin odd one. "They don't play the game as much as they ÜBed to. A year or so after 1 left certain unscrupulous fellows got friendly with the organist and worked him for inside information before services. As noon as this leaked out the better class of students quit playing the game. You wou...
Toole Kept Cool. [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 27 April 1901
Toole Kept Cool. J. L. Took- was once aetinj; in London, i when one of his company failed to come I In answer to his cue. Amazed at his nonappeanuice, Toole commenced to gag, and then repeated the last line of the original serin with croat emphasis. Still no actor. 80, turning to the Uousc, tie romnrted coolly, "As my friend T— does not seem in the slightest way anxious to turn np, I will, with your kind permission, sit down and rest awhile." Then, amid the roar of laughter which followed the speech, Toole calmly took a chair and seated himself. A second later the tardy actor dashed on to the stage, taking up the cue, now long gone by, with the words, "I was detained"— "Thou sn.vrst not so," remarked Toole gravely, rising. "I should never have thought it. Well, since you are here, we'll continue."

Cancer There are never any external signs of Cancer until the blood is polluted and the system thoroughly con* tamiuated by this deadly virulent poison. Then a sore or ulcer appears on some part of the body ; it may !*• small and harmless looking at first, but as the cancerous cell* form and are deposited by the blood near the *&lt;&gt;re, it increases in size and severity, with sharp shooting paina. No matter how often the sore is removed by tiie surgeon's knife or flesh destroying plasters, another comes and if worse. The i eal disease is in the blood, and the treatment must betjin there. The poisoned blood must be invigorated and purified, and when this is done cancerous cells can no longer form and the sore will heal naturally and permanently. Mrs. Sarah M.

DANGROSVENOR SAYS: " Peruna Is an Excellent Spring Catarrh Remedy— l am as Well as Ever." Hon. Dan. A. Grosvenor, of the Famous Ohio Family. Hon. Dan. A. Grosvenor, Deputy Auditor for the War Department, in a letter written from Washington, D. C, says: "Allow me to express my gratitude to you for the benefit derived from one bottle of Peruna. One week has brought wonderful changes and I am now as well as ever. Besides being one of the very best spring tonics, it is an excellent catarrh remedy." Very respectfully, Dan. A. Grosvenor. Almost everybody needs a tonic in the spring. Something to brace the nerves, invigorate the brain and cleanse the blood. That Peruna will do this is beyond all question. If you do not derive prompt and satisfactory results from the use of Peruna, write at once to Dr. Hartman, giving a full statement of your case and he will be pleased to give you his valuable advice gratis.

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 27 April 1901
Mrs. Annie W. Clark of Columbus, Ohio, president of the Woman's Christian Temperance union, has addressed a formal note to the women of the Ohio society of California, protesting against the serving of wine at the banquet which the society is to give to Mrs. McKinley and the ladies of the cabinet at the launching of the battle-ship Ohio next month. Mrs. Clark's note represents the sentiment of 12,000 women, and concludes as follows: "The occasion and the the guests are representative, and the eyes of the entire nation are upon them! the press and the people will pass judgement. Ohio mothers, sisters, wives and daughters plead that your example shall be for righteousness in the nation with purity in the home. Yours for the honor of Ohio."

PRODUCTS OF THE IMPERIAL SETTLEMENT [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 27 April 1901
PRODUCTS OF THE IMPERIAL SETTLEMENT The country being new and undeveloped, of course no one can speak with any accuracy as to the crops best suited to this section, but it is the universal belief of all who have examined the soil and conditions here that almost everything grown in Southern California can be produced here when these lands are brought in touch with water. While it is not believed that citrus fruits can be profitably grown here, it is thought that deciduous fruits will develop to perfection, and that eventually this will be one of the greatest, if not indeed the greatest, early fruit, vegetable and melon countries on the globe. It is absolutely certain, however that alfalfa can be produced on these lands to the extent of from eight to twelve tons per acre, and also sorghum, wheat, barley and other similar farm productions can be successfully grown throughout this section of country, thus making it possible to build up a livestock industry unsurpassed in California, if ...
CALIFORNIA STOCKMEN ORGANIZE [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 27 April 1901
CALIFORNIA STOCKMEN ORGANIZE The California Stockraisers' Protective Association, says the Southwestern Stockman, is a new organization that promises to become one of the strongest organizations in the country. The association has seventy-three charter members, including the wealthiest and most prominent stockmen in Central California. A constitution and by-laws hare been adopted, and the organization is effective and in good working order. Its purposes are the protection of the stockmen's interests in every branch of the business, but particular stress is laid upon the enforcement of the quarantine laws, the protection of the herds from all contagious diseases and from the raids of the rustlers and thieves. The mem* bership fee has been placed at $2.50, and the treasury is kept in funds by assessments levied on each member in proportion to the number of head of stock he owns. Rewards will be offered for the arrest and conviction of rustlers and thieves and posses will be available ...
OHIO RIVER FLOODED [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 27 April 1901
OHIO RIVER FLOODED Dispatch from Cincinnati dated April 20, says: The peculiar weather conditions during the week culminated in a rain and snow storm almost unprecedented in its dimensions, and so distributed that tremendous floods in the Ohio are impending. It is too early to predict the extent of the damage from the coming floods, but all the symptoms point to a stage of water that must bring devastation of the most serious nature all along the Ohio river and its tributaries in Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia. As we walk along in the warm sunshine with the cool breeze playing upon our tepid foreheads, etcetera, there is something amusing in the mere thought of the blizzardy snow storm that rages and gnashes its teeth and switches its tail and howls and roars and kills and stops railway trains in the Missouri valley. We consider it a source of great superiority, sir, that we have the good sense, sir, to live where the climate is done up in blue baby ribbon and scented silk paper, ...
PRESS NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 27 April 1901
PRESS NOTES San Diego Union The furore over the Belgian hare has probably reached its climax. It has invaded Missouri and Arkansas.and as these states are about the last to be reached by fads good or bad, the craza must be near the end of its tether. How the hares are regarded in Missouri may be inferred from the fact that a presumably intelligent member of the legislature of that state, having partaken of one, declared that it was "just like rabbit." Pacific Rural Press The " bob-tail nag " will no longer be a possibility in California —a bangtail is all the abbrevation which the law will permit. By a law just passed, docking the tails of horses, or causing the operation to be done, is a misdemeanor, and county supervisors are allowed to appropriate a sum not to exceed $150 a month in aid of societies for prevention of all sorts of cruelty to animals Ladles Home Journal After all we must come back to the old truism; that men and women are like water; they always find their true lev...

COINS WITH HOLES [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 27 April 1901
COINS WITH HOLES A 3-Ceat Piece la Demand and Will Be Coined The United States is about to begin the coinage of a 3-ccnt piece for use particularly in the west and southwest. It will be of nickle, about the size of a 5-cent piece, but in the center of it will be a hole about a quarter of an inch in diameter. This will enable one to distinguish it by the feel even in the dark. As is well known, only the gold coins are made on a basis of value equal to their denominations. The cent, for instance, is not worth as metal a fraction of that amount. The nickle is not either. All are stamped from blanks which the government buys by contract. Silver coins were originally of the same value as the metal, but silver has dropped so that a "cart wheel" dollar is only worth about 50 cents. Gold is worth cent for cent. With the beginning of the new year a new series of coinage began. All the old dies with 1900 on them were destroyed —that is, the face, was. On New Year's day more than 1,200 of the ...
LIVESTOCK NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 27 April 1901
LIVESTOCK NOTES While it is true that the cattle business is always successful when conducted upon the broad ranges of the western plains, by a man who is familiar with the livestock industry, it remains none the less true that this is not the only, but simply one, of the systems by which cattle is made a profitable business, while there is another by which this business may be made to yield as great, if indeed not greater, profits for the capital invested. Stock-farming has in all countries and in all ages been found to be very profitable, and even more so now than ever before, and everyone is free to admit that there is ten fold more pleasure and comfort to be had from the business when one has a small bunch of gentle, high-bred stock on the home place, than from the large herd of wild long-horns scattered over acres and miles of the open plains. By raising cattle on the farm the farmer has a good home market for all the feed he can produce, saves lsbor and expense of transportati...
