HUKTON. J.n l.os Angeles Tlmcf. Jt Is very fur from a .semi-inilleninni sines I three liftle open boats under the llatc of Spain j Rtf.t toiiehcu the waters of the western hcrni-1 sphere and revealed tiie new world to the evcs o: Europeans. ii i tuny a muc over u ' century since the United States of America spransr, so to speak, like Pallas Athene from the brain of Jove, -a completely armed ad dition to the family of nations. It is but little -verhatf a century since California be came a part of these United States of America, and less than a giiieratipn since the settle meat of the Great Southwest began. In all Hit 125 years since the Republic .. .. founded, also in the half century since Call fornia became one of the SUites of the Union, and during overy year of the last thirty, a re alisation ol the va&t riches of the Amsriran eontinen't, of the territory of the United States and of this Great Southwest Ii.s been more and more astonishing to the minds of men. One would suppose 1 hat by today we 'knew pretty thoroughly whatthc undevelop ed resources of Ihc Great Southwest might reasonably be expected to become. We have not reached the depths of this great ocean of wealth with our plummet line yet. In a residence of forty years on the Coast (he writer thought he knew a little about what tiierc 1 on the Coast, and as inost of these years !,!ive been spent in and around Los Angelt-s, he naturally had a little con ceit that he was pretty well acquainted with the Gioai. Southwest. Last week a trip to the Colorado River bottoms, below Yuma made him feel ns a tenderfoot who had come in on the last train. New to him. this wonderful region aud Its possibilities are pretty well known to a great many readers of The Times by i hc 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 jeat Laguna dam, at the confluence of the Gila and Colorado Rivers. It is twelve miles rrom Yuma down the river to the Mexican bonndry 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 !o Mexico is only a few miles. ONCE A MIGHTY STREAM. Ages ago when the mountain ranges of Arizona ami California towered toward the stars, at least twice as high as thej- do now, .rains were very freducnt and came down in torrential volumes all along these mountain ridges. The Colorado River in these past ages was a mighty stream, sweeping down debris In tons every second of its How. The Colora do sink was at that t ime a great inland sea, which spread over the country on both sides of where the ri'.'cr now runs. As the erosion cf winds and storms, landslides and glaciers wore down the mountain ridges year by year, the great river carried down a vast amount of fil t, erosion from the rocks full of phos-. phatcs, iimes and disintegrated granites, as well an the vegetation along its banks; and this was nil deposited In what are now the j sinks of the Colorado. as the mountain tops were worn down, the 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 went on from age to age to pur time, leaving ihc Colorado at Yuma a streash about Haifa mile wide" and being at the present time about twenty feet deep ia the deepest portion. 1 1 is not necessary to remind Californians that the Spanish iilissiniiaries and explorers calied this river the Colorado because of the reddish color of its waters. 1 1 is the Colorado up in the Grand Canyon in Arizona and down past The Needl"S. Rut at this time of 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 iiow was silt and only ninety per cent water. RICHES OF SOIL WONDERFUL But the object 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 depositidgyf this mass of lebris during all the past ages. Going through the country on' the Arizona side of the .river, for several miles below Ynma, one encounters the same t3'Pe of country and soil that is found in the Imperial Valley country around Brawley, Calexieo and other points west of the river The fertility of the black prairie soils or Illi nois has asoiM.shed people engaged in agri culture for nearly one hundred years. The fertility of the valley of the Nile has been a matter of hist 'ry for at least 6O00yt ars. Those who are familmr with Illinois prairie soil, and those .who know what the valley cf the Nile is for agriculture, kliow that this lower Colorado River region surpasses bo th of them. Ifyouaslia farmer along this stretch of country If the soil is six feet, his eyes will open with astonishment ai your ignorance, lie will. tell yon no one knows whether It is CO feet, 600 or 0,000 feet deep. It is practically without bottom. It is so thoroughly well mixed wilt; sand, disintegrated grarlite and other rooks that it never breaks. It is as easily w oiked as a heap of ashes, and re sponds to cultivation in a way that is mar velous. CUT SEVEN CHOPS YEARLY. Arizona has established an experiment station in the heart of tills bis valley, which is sonic twenty-four miles Ion?, and in spots ten to twelve miles wide, down on the lower level. The results are wouderful. Iast week they were cittttni a crop of alfalia on this ex perimental fann, and for seven consecutive months hcy viil cut succeeding, crops. The ' only months v. hen the crop is not cat hers arc J December and January. I Cotton and tobacco gro-v wi the fereatest luxuriance, and this rieh alluvial soil will be noted ia a very few years as the ideal spot in j the whole country for dairying,, ho; raisin-, the production of poultry and vegetables, which j one hesitates to call early or late, as thev .will vo perem isl. !ew potatoes will be produced ta the middle f January, tomatoes will be ripe by the liivst ot March, ripe grapes -vriil be :athen'd in the early days of Slay, and apri eots by the middle of the same - month. Chic kens and turkeys iiourish there in the winter time beyond all experience anywhere else The rsiifaH is exceedingly light and comos only three or four times ia a whole winter. VVith an abundance of green alfalfa and veget able the dry and not overheated climate prevailing tn the winter months, chickens are free from the disease that make their raising difileult elsewhere. There is no spot in South ern Illinois or Missouri so adapted to thf pro duction of com as this valley along the Colora- j do Kiver. "Vifh alfalfa and co'i, the butter. cheese, epss, roultry and pork to be raised on u twenty -acre farm will amuse, those who have 1 tlir o-nt - if nrv ia tmorlm-..,im.iil!i,rol off-ifrt. ! The winter climate around Yuma is a thing so lutoxicatiugly salubrious lhat no words c.m 1 P.1 , describe it. Those deserts of America, as wo have regarded them heretofore, se-eai to def y , the ills thar, human nature elsewhere is so prone to contract and sier from. TLe atraos phere is ay drv as poelt, && 4t4es-loudlssl.v &mr, "le-'tKr raW at jo5it.ie. aad every -it' - ne'V vtf The United States has an experiment farm on the mesa just on the outskirts of Yuma. Here ults even more marvelous than in the valley arc produced. Down on the lower levels there are little nips of frosty mornings occasionally during December and January, but on the mesa the breath of frost never touches the most del icate vegctatioa. Oranges grown at the Feder al experiment station arc unsurpassed in their delicious quality. Yuma is a busy, up-to-date town. The more modern improvements consist of several blocks of attractive brick buildings, a three story pest oflice building, also of brick, and many other nice structures. Among seme of the greater improvements which are being made, are a 535,000 school building, a S75.C00 ice plant, a tine club-house, tor the. railroad employes, a larger passenger depot, and the probability of a new court house to cost 875,000. There is con siderable business done there, but the people have not begun to awaken to the vast possibili ties of the place. They should at once erect an up-to-date tourist hotel. It should have ample grounds around it and be planted with all kinds of tropical vegetation Jf atmosphere were only transportable like mineral waters, and one could send consignments of this ' Yuma winter air to the East, the inspiration of health-giving qualities would bring 25X00 tourists every winter to thc-banks of the Colo rado Kiver. Yuma needs only to make known its climatic ' year oy oiizzarus unci snowstorms to attrac city full every winter. The fertility of the val ley below will almost make itselr known with out effort on the part of the people. Bus with i valley full ot intelligent and industrious rural population, producing fruits aiid vegetables, poultry-, eggs, tresh milk ana fragrant butter. Yuma should be one of the most delightful winter resorts ia au America. There is every thing there to furnish tourists with the mo.it healthful and declicious food, and if the air that region does not drh'e doctors to .seek living elsewhere, it will be because the people do not know now to live properly. The Laguna Dam will be completed in 1909, and in ten years from today the attractions of Yuma as a health resort and the fertility of those bottom lands will be so well known that it will require S1.0J0 in c.ish to buy a single acre of it.
