X npHERK are thousands of people in Southern California today who have money to invest and who are vj
\ 1 looking for investments. *;
X There are other thousands who are not, strictly speaking, looking for investment*?, but who would ♦*
a be glad to put a little money where it would do the most good. fv
\ The att- ntion of both classes is called particularly to the rapid development now in progress in 4?
\ the settlement of 500,000 acres of land under the Imperial Canal System in the eastern portion of San Diego ♦?
A county. \ ... . \i
a This settlement is no boom proposition. It is founded on the largest and most fertile tract of 4^s
x irrigable land to be found in arid America. I>X
X The Imperial Canal System is what its name indicates — the most abundant supply of water 'that 1a I
a can be used for irrigation purposes in America. ♦?♦
a Not only is the water abundant, but it is cheap. T/i
>x Experience shows that 500,000 acres of such land, when under cultivation, will support a popula- a>X
a tion of from 150,000 upwards. J^4
a Such a population must support and maintain at least one city of metropolitan proportions, and ♦ vjj
a several smaller cities of less magnitude — from 5000 to 10,000 people each. \x\
(\( \ This is no dream. Look over Southern California and see what has been done. What has been m
a done must be done again under similar conditions.
a The Imperial Land Company has platted three town sites: 1/1
1 ' if!
I Imperial, Paringa and Calexico. «
0 ▼ One of these towns will become a large cit\\ All of them will become cities. I<J
? J A judicious investment in any one of them will return manifold profits. ♦$
0 The policy of the Imperial Land Company has been to give early investors a chance to make big J()
/ money. This is a wise business policy. That policy was applied to the sale of water rights. Prices of
xj water rights were advanced only because it became a necessity, as the laud was being taken more rapidly +0
Q than the water could be delivered. jd
xj The same policy is now adopted in connection with the sale of town property. fA^
xj We want to interest thousands of people financially in the Imperial Settlements, because the more J\
x are interested the better it is for the investors as well as for the proprietors of the water system and the ?\
Q town sites. \
vj In the very near future all the towns mentioned above will become railroad towns. \
xj The towns are laid out systematically, and the Imperial country is being developed systematically. \
x These facts have been accentuated by the gratuitous publication of hundreds of columns of com- \4
x plimentary accounts of this great enterprise in the leading journals and magazines of the East, and in \t
x nearly all the papers of Southern California. We have several large scrap books full of these indorsements. \ J
In reference to vacant land under Imperial Water Company No. 1, of which there is yet quite an \4
x acreage, we would refer the reader to Oakley-Paulin Co., Douglas Block, Los Angeles. Cal. I /(I
