of San Diego, amonfj other things.
*ays: "The Imperial valley Is well
named. It Is a wonder. It must be
*een to be fully appreciated. Some
thing like 75 OCO acres of rich land Is
\t\ cultivation. Good crops are grow
Ing of alfalfa, barley, sorghum, canta
loupes and grapes. Thousands of cat
tle, horses, sheep and hogs are In pas
ture. The entire valley is prosper ng
All that is needed to make them con
tented and happy Is a direct line of rail
to the coast. Many anxious Inquiries
*ere made about the tailroad pros*

people what I had seen and learned
about the progress made by the
Spreckels people* As quick as this
road is running to tUs valley It will

Forty-two cars of or.lons have been
shipped this season from Thermal.

onions to make the first market, and
in the East, especially, hold It until the
past ten days, when the superior quali

and it is the general opinion of the
growers that while the probable net

Theru were 41,877 appointments marie
last year to cnitipetatlve positions in
the civil pervice at salaries ranging
from about $75 to $150 a month.
This would average nearly 1000 from
each Btatt>, to whom aru paid about $(,•
000,000. The large, more populous
Htates, however, get niuch more.
In spite of t lie good eahtrics, pleasant
employ ment and chance for promotion
in these positions the government, has
not been able to secure enough compe
tent help to meet the needs of the Her*
vlee, due no doubt to the fact that so
few people know how to prepare and
secure these places. Any of our readers
