CURBING A GREAT RIVER *Uie engineers who for many months have been trying to hrlnj the Colorado river again under con trol have finally succeeded. They have turned the river back Into It own channel, and It now flows In its usual course to the gtilf of Cal if vnia instead of pouring into the Sal ton sink and wasting tho lands that had been reclaimed by Irriga tion. The river, entirely ahandonlnf! its old channel, had followed Itf ^ lawless cemrse northward destroying ui.ich property and threatening mil lions of dollars’ worth of fruit, farm and grazing lands. This arid region had been turned to good account by nn Irrigation system supplied with water taken from the Colorado river. ITnfortu nately, no control works hnel been built at tho head of the main chan nel that tapped the river, and the entrance Into tho canal until the whole river poured Into it. The nat ural river channel became dry, and ns the Irrigation system could not carry ofT the entire flood flow, there was a great damage to the ditches and crops, and a large lake was formed, covering about 250 square miles at the lowest pnrt of the sink, 2G0 feet below sea elvel. Nearly 8000 people had settled in the basin of the Imperial valley and were raising excellent crops of bnrley and alfalfa. They had opened many stock farms and were raising thf ^ date palm; and the shipments ol products from this verdant oanli were said to exceed those of any oth er town In Southern California. Bui prosperity was checked by the un welcome floods, and tho pioneer* have awaited anxiously the abate ment of the evil. They aro now thoroughly convin ced that too much water Is a nui sance, and they will doubtless takr good caro In future to keep this de sirable commodity duly harnessed and under control.—New York Sun y^insel is to be given by the wise the remedy by the rich.— From th* French.
