The ranchers west ot the range are
happy over an inch of rain which fell
there last week. Here we have plenty
of water and all we have to do to raise
a crop is to prepare the ground and
turn in the water and watch it (the
crop) grow. The crops now growing
in the Imperial valley are looking in
excellent condition and we saw some
new barley hay, loose, which was the
equal of any we have ever seen.
C. O. Downing, of Spokane, Wash.,
was in the valley the most of last week '
looking for a chance to locate. In an
interview with us he said that he had
been in frontier countries every since
he was a boy but that he never saw a
country that offered better induce- j
ments to a homeseeker than did this
valley. He said that the apparent fer
tility of the soil, the permanency of
the water supply, and ease with which
it can be applied to the laud make
it an ideal place for a man to invest
his money and not feel but what he is
running a risk of the water giving out
and losing his investment. He pre-*
diets that the advent of passiiiget ser- ,
service on the railroad will bring a
tremenduous influx of homeseekers
into our town. He also said that all
the Washington people he had seen
whom had been in the valley spoke in |
most glowing terms of its prospects
and that was parcially what induced ,
him to come and investigate for him
self. He says that he found every- 1
thing just as he had been told and if
anything a little better.
Yuma No Longer a (iretna Green
This town has lost a big revenue
which has been a regular and perma
nent thing now for about four years.
The calamity will fall the hardest upon
the justice of the peace and probate
judge, and both are threatening to re
sign — and all because the California
legislature hrs just repealed or amend
ed the divorce law of that state which
has been the means of sending hund
reds of divorces to Yuma to get mar
ried. The old law prohibited divorced
people from marrying in the state
within a year. The law as amended
provides that no decree of divorce shall
be issued for one year from time of
judgment. Of course when the decree
is granted at the end of the year the
divorced parties may marry again as
soon as they like and where they like,
But they dont have to come to Arizona
