Fifty Working Mules.
George A. Carter of Pomona tells me
he has just closed a contract to take
fifty working mules to the Imperial
lands, on New River. The teams will
l>e employed in leveling the bucr.mock
lands, in prepancg the lands for farm
ing, and in building canals throughout
the district. Mr. Carter also has
freighting contracts which will em
ploy a limited number of his teams.
These are only a few pointers indi
cating the rapidity with which the
delta lands are attracting settlers. The
Pomona contractor will improve a
section of his own land this winter,
and engage in acthe farming whi'e
superintending his other work- It is
expected that the Imperial country
will make wonderful progress during
the next few months. — Ix/s Angeles
