Mere is the Water!
Supplied by the Imperial Canal System, at a price that could not be lower if the irrigation system
were built by the government
CONSIDER CAREFULLY THE FOLLOWING FACTS i
FIRST — The Imperial Canal System is the largest in the United States and has the water to irrigate more and better
land than can be found elsewhere on this continent in one body and under one system.
SECOND— The soil is the most fertile — more so than the soil of the celebrated Nile Valley, which has been success-
fully cropped for thousands of years.
THIRD — The water in abundance is now on the ground ready for use, and the supply will ever remain practically
FOURTH— If the government had built the irrigation system it would not have furnished the land and water at a less
cost, or on more reasonable terms.
FIFTH — As an alfalfa country, it takes the lead. No locality can produce more tons of alfalfa hay to the acre than
can be prcxluced here — six to eight cuttings per year, with one to two tons per acre to each cutting.
SIXTH — Cattle and hogs can be raised and fattened here more cheaply than elsewhere in this country. Stockmen
should not pass by this great opportunity.
SEVENTH — Wheat and barley grow to perfection. These crops come off early in May or June, and then a second
summer crop can be raised if desired. Farmers have a chance of a life time.
EIGHTH— EarIy fruits and vegetables will ultimately become a great and paying industry in the Imperial Settlements
when transportation facilities are extended.
NINTH — A large portion of the land is so level that it requires no work or expense to get it ready for flooding-. There
is here all grades of land from level land to that which requires leveling. The best is being taken fast. Over
100,000 acres are now gone. First come, first served. Level land can yet be had, but the sooner you file the
better land and more desirable location you will get.
TENTH — The water right has been selling at a low figure, and it is still supplied at one-tenth of its intrinsic value,
but the price will be advanced from time to time, and those who act promptly will save money.
Do not delay — act quickly before the choicest lodations arc all gone.
