it is the best medicine ever sold
over a druggist's counter.
and during every year of the last thirty, n re
alization of the vast rlchrs of the American
continent, or t lie territory of the United
States and of this Great Southwest h is been
more and more astonishing to the minds of
men. One would suppose that by todaj' we
knew pretty thoroughly what the undevelop
ed resources of 1 lie Great Southwest might
reasonably be expected to become. We have
not readied tlie depths of this great ocean of
wealth with our plummet line yet.
In a residence of forty years on the Coast
the writer thought he knew a little about
what there is on the Coast, and as most of
these 3-ears have been spent in and around
Los Angeles, he naturally had a little con
ceit that he was pretty well acquainted with
the Great Southwest. Last week a trip to the
Colorado Itiver bottoms, below Yuma made
him feel asv tenderfoot who had come in on
the last l rain. New to him, this wonderful
region and its possibilities are preily we'l
known to a great many readers of The Times
by the stories published, if not by the demon
stration of their own eyes. .
Yuma lies on the map just twelve miles
from when; the government Is putting in the
great Laguna dam, at the confluence of the
Gila and Colorado Rivers. It. is twelve miles
from Yuma down the river to the Mexican
boundry line on the Arizona side of the river
At one point, just below Yuma, the interna
tional boundry line runs up along the river
which there takes a westerly- trend and from
Yuma to Mexico is only a'few :nile.
ONCE A MIGHTY STREAM. '
Ages ago when the mountain ranges of
Arizona and California towered toward the
stars, at least twice as high as they do now.
rains were very frcdueit and came down in
torrential volumes all along these mountain
ridges. The Colorado River in these past ages
waRa mighty stream, sweeping down debris
in tons every second of its flow. The Colora
do sink was at that time a great inland sea,
which spread over the country on both sides
of wlierc the river now runs. As the erosion
of winds and storms, landslides and glaciers
wore down the mountain ridges year by year,
the great river carried down a vast amount
of silt, erosion from tlie rocks full of phos
phates, limes and disintegrated graniles, as
well as the vegetation along Its banks; and
this was all deposited in what are now the
sinks of the Colorado.
As the mountain tops were worn down, t he
rains became less frequent and less in volume
but the erosion of rocks and river banks, the
trees and vegetable mould torn from the
banks still came down and settled into the
bottom of the great inland lake. .This geogical
process wen ton from age to age to our time,
leaving the Colorado at Yupia a .stream about
half a. mile wide tnid being at the present
time about twenty feet deep .la the deepest
It is not. necessary to remind Callfornians
that tlie Spanisli missionaries and explorers
called this river the Colorado because of the
reddish color of its waters. Jt is the Colorado
up in the Grand Canyon In Arizona and
down past The Needles. But at this time or
the year, after passing the mouth of the Gila,
instead of the red river it becomes the brown
river. It actually looks today as if ten per
cent of Its How Was silt and only ninety per
RICHES OF SOIL WONDERFUL
But the obicct of this story Is to call atten
tion once more, and for perhaps the thou
sandth time, to the riches of the soil along
the Colorado on both sides, incident to the
depositids of this mass of debris during all
the past ages. Going through the country
on the Arizona side of the river, for several
miles below Yuma, one encounters the same
type of country and soil that is found In the
Imperial Valley country around Braw'ey,
Calexico and other points west of the river
The fertility of I he black prairie soils of Illi
nois has a.Vmished people engaged in agri
culture for nearly one hundred years. The
fertility of the valleys of the Nile has been a
matter of history forat least 60C0 years. ThoF.e
who are familinr with Illinois prairie soil,
and thoc who know what the valley of the
Nile is for agriculture, lthow that this lower
Colorado River region surpasses both of them.
Ifyouaska farmer along this stretch or
country if the soil is six feet, his eyes will
open with nstonlshment ai your ignorance.
He will tell you no one knows whether it is
60 feet, GOO or (,000 feet deep. It is practically
without bottom. It Is so thoroughly well
mixed with sand, disintegrated granite and
other rocks that it never breaks. It is s
easils' worked as a heap of ashes, and re
sponds to oul.tivatiou in a way that is mar
CUT SEVEN CROPS YEARLY.
Arizona lias established an experiment
station in the heart of this big valley, which
is some twenty-four miles long, and in spots
ten to twelve miles wide, down on the lower
level. The results are wonderful. Last week
they were cutting a crop of alfalia on this ex
perimental farm, and for seven consecutive
months they will cut succeeding crops. The
only mouths when the crop is not cut here are
December and January.
Cotton and tobacco grow with the greatest
luxuriance, and this rich alluvial soil will be
noted in a very few years as the ideal spot in
the ivhole country for dairying, hog raising,
the production of poultry and vegetables, which
one hesitates to call early or late, as they will
be perennial. New potatoes will be produced
in the middle of January, tomatoes will be
ripe by the first of March, ripe grapes will be
gathered ia the early days of May, and apri
cots by the middle of the same month. Chic
kens and turkeys nourish there in the winter
time beyond all experience anywhere else.
The rainfall is exceedingly light and comes
only three or four times in a whole winter.
With an abundance of green alfulfa and veget
able the dry and not overheated climate
prevailing in the wiuter months, chickens are
free from the disease that make their raising
difficult elsewhere. There is no spot in South
ern Illinois or Missouri so adapted to the pro-
duction of corn as this valley along the Colora
do River. With alfalfa and corn, the butter,
I chee.-e. eggs, poultry and pork to be raised on a
j twenty-acre farm wiil amaze those who have
the experience in American agricultural affairs
j The winter climate around Yuma is a thing
