WILL LOOK TO
CONGRESS
Southern Pacific Decides to Move
Tracks Again and Give No More
Assistance to Valley People
Removal of the Southern Pacific
tracks to higher ground In the Salton
sea sink and an appeal for government
aid in staying the Colorado river flood
are the principal features of the Imper
ial valley problem to-day.
While the citizens of Imperial do not
twish to appeal to congress for financial
assistance they will ask the govern
ment to render aid, as In the case of
Mississippi river floods and other Inun
dations which have threatened large
sections of valuable country.
Imperial Valley people subscribed
abo^t $1,000,000 to the "repair" fund
and asked the.Southern Pacific to con
tribute the additional $1,500,000 need
ed to build a new dam below the old
one and to construct a levee along the
river banks, a d stance of twenty miles'
but the railroad company has not de
cided to pool its interests with the peo
ple as yet.
WILL MOVE RAILROAD
It has. however, decided at once to
remove its flooded tracks to ground
100 feet higher up the slopes, for a dis
tance of twenty or thirty miles. This
work will require ninety days and It is
• estimated that the flood cannot reach
the new roadbed inside of three years.
During that period the company will be
able to survey a route" for a permanent
and dry right of way and to build a
new road through that section. To
date the Southern Pacific has expend
ed about $3,000,000 in constructing
the dam and In rescuing Its tracks
from the waters in Salton sink.
The heavy Investors In Imperial val
ley assert that It is the duty of con
gress to lend aid in rescuing the sec
tion from floods. The sink at lowest
point Is 280 feet below sea level and
the flood already covers an area of 500
square miles. Should the waters come
to a level there it is estimated that
more than 2000 square miles of coun
try will be converted Into a lake. In
this case Imperial Valley stands to lose
500,000 acres of land, of which more
than 200,000 acres is under cultivation.
Unless the overflow of the Colorado
river is stopped about 10,000 people
will be homeless. Government engin
eers who have made an Investigation
state that unless repairs are made the
Colorado Is liable to scour back and
make impossible the Laguna project
planned In connection with a dam twelve
miles above Yuma and Involving the
reclamation of 94,000 acres of land.
COULD SOON MAKE REPAIRS
It Is claimed that, with a sufficient
force of men and adequate funds, a
new dam and levees sufficient for per
manent protection of the valley can be
built In four months. '

F TEN THOUSAND PUNTS Of
Tt & &r BURBANK'S WONDERFUL
l c^^y CRIMSON WINTER RHUURfc
We are going: to give them away
Read our liberal oSerjbelowi before you pass on.
The TOWN AND COUNTRY JOURNAL is the widest read, best
printed, beat illustrated, most progressive and interesting magazine for
Farmers, Fruit Growers, Poultrymen, Dairymen and the rural inhabitant
of any publication west of the Rockies.
10 on th * Pwifc Coast take the TOWN
AND COUNTRY JOURNAL into their homes and read it, because it's a
great paper and has a message of interest for them— every issue.
But we want the TOWN AND COUNTRY JOURNAL to go into five
thousand more homes on this coast. Hence, we make the followina offer.
When yon finish reading this you will be compelled to say that it is fair
that there is no "string" to it. It is made open and above board,
and is going to cost us a bunch of money. We don't mind that, so long
as you read what we my and act on it.
Now, as stated, we are going to GIVE AWAY 10,000 plants of Bur-
bank's Crimson Winter Rhubarb. This creation of the great Burbank is
one of the most wonderful plants in tt e world. It iscailed the"Mortga«e
Lifter," because it is so prolific and always sells so readily at a good price.
A single plant will produce from 80 to 100 stalks at a time— and it
keeps growing. Not only that, but it is as ornamental as the palm or
banana tree. Its leaves are very large and of a beautiful rich green, and
that at a time of year when green vegatation is scarce. '
Remember that we don't ask you to pay anything for the Rhubarb
plants. They are free. We will aend them to you postpaid and won't
ask you for a cent. But to show that you are willing to be as liberal with
us as we are with you, we want you to send us 50 cents for the TOWN
AND COUNTRY JOURNAL lor a year.
Now hold on 1 Don't say that you knew that there was a "string" to
our offer. There isn't. The most liberal part ot this offer is yet to come..
Read on : * '
Write us for the Rhubarb Plants NOW. It will cost you nothing but
the postage stamp on your letter. When we send them we will also mail
you some sample copies ol the TOWN AND COUNTRY JOURNAL, and
will continue to mail them to you for three months. If at the end of that
time you are dissatisfied with it— if it does not prove up to your expecta-
tions—writ^ us and say so, and without a word of argument we will send
you back your 60 cents. That will give you the TOWN AND COUNTRY
JOURNAL three months FREE, to say nothing of the two Rhubarb
Plants. Now, isn't that a fair offer? Isn't it a liberal one?
A FINE ILLUSTRATED MAGAZINE FREE
That is what it will amount to— and a valuable premium to "boot."
Of course if you don't tell us at ttii end of three months to stop the
paper, we will keep on sending it and will enter your name on our sub-
scription books for a year.
Now, we have secured only 10,000 of these wonderful Burbank Crim-
son Winter Rhubarb Plants. They're not so plentiful as they might be
an<l as they're sure to be some day. So you would better hurry up. Write
us NOW, if you want them. They're bound to go like wildfire, so act
quickly and secure them.
