Newspaper Clogs Postoffice
The postoffice at Los Angeles is hav
ing a strenuous time these days to dis
patch second class mail matter. In ad
dition to tVie large amount of first-class
mail matter to sort out and route, as a
result of the larye number of tourists
and visitors in that city at this time,
the postoffice clerks are putting in
overtime handling tons of copies of
the Midwinter Number of the Los An
geles Times, which was issued on Jan.
Ist. As usual, citizens and tourists
all over tlie Southwest are mailing
great numbers of this issue of "The
Times" to friends — many going to re
mote parts of the world.
No section of the world can tell a
prouder story of progress and develop
ment than can Southern California for
1902, and "'The Times" has certainly
told it truthfully and well, and best of
all, has told it in few words and in at
tractive form. Such papers do effect
ive missionary work in the East and
one can more correctly inform friends
of the real conditions of life in the
"land we love" by sending them a
copy of this issue of "The Times"
than by any number of letters or or
Shade Trees for the Desert
In the Imperial and Indio districts, a
trial should be given the lebbek tree
(Albizza lebbek), a deciduous tree
from India, but extensively planted in
the desert parts of Egypt. It grows
rapidly, produces a dense shade and
thrives in soils containing but little
moisture. It will also endure, without
apparent injury, the sand storms of
the desert. Another strong point in
their fayor is the ease with which they
may be transplanted at all ages, with
little danger of loss.
In Egypt they are allowed to grow
in the nursery row until 6to 8 inches
in 'diameter and are then dug up and
pruned back to desired height and size
of head and planted where needed.
During the first year only, do the trees
require watering. The trees grow to
a large size, some in cultivation meas
uring nine feet in diameter. They
spread in an irreyular, gnarly growth,
and would do much to relieve the
monotony of plantations of the con
ventional and tiresome growth of iiuca
lypts. Information regarding seeds
may be had from the Department o*
Agriculture. — Cultivator.
