Why Colds are Dangerous
Because you have contracted ordwiary colds and recovered from them without treatment of any kind, do not fo^ a moment imagine that colds are not difcn gerous. Everyone knows that pneu monia and chronic chtarrh have their origin in a common cold. Consumption is not caused by a cold but the col»!i prepares the system for the reception and cevelopment of the germs that would not otherwise have found lodg ment. It is the same with all infecti ous diseases. Diphtheria, scarlet fever, measles and whooping cough are much more likely to be contracted when the child has a cold. You will see from this that more real danger lurks in a cold than in any other of the common ailments. The easiest and quickest way to cure a cold is to take Chamber lain's Cough Remedy. The many re markable cures effected by this prepa ration have made it a staple article of trade over a large part of the world. For sale by El Centro Drug Store. R. L. Greer Architcd and Builder.

CALIFORNIA | ACTUAL SETTLER GETS THE LAND General Prescott Decides in Favor of Abraham L. Smith in Im portant Contest General Frank C. Prescott, register of the general land office, has decided against Charles F, Dearborn in his contest for a desert claim against Abraham L. Smith, who got the property in Imperial valley from Esta R. Phillips. The case is one of particular importance in Imperial valley because it involves water rights. Mr. Smith has occupied the land and has cultivated it as far as possible and the registrar and recorder of the land office based their opinion on the fact that Mr. Smith has worked the land for his sustenance. He has ex pended a large sum of money in cultivating the land and nothing was shown in the contest to in dicate that he did not intend to make the place his permanent home. The contestee in the case pur chased thirty shares of stock in Imperial Water Company- No. 1 for $375, with the expectation of using the water on his land. On December 8, 1906, Mr. Dearborn filed his contest, de claring that no improvements had been made on the claim. The trial of the case was held last April. It developed that the water rights obtained by the holder of the land did not affect this particular claim, . but that another water right applied here and could be utilized on this land without affecting any other land. Accordingly General Prescott decided in favor of the man who lived on the land. \ 80 acx-es fine land 5 miles east of Im perial, 75 shares water stock nearly all improved, $50.00 an acre. Bert R.

The birds are numerous in most parts of Imperial valley and the sport this season will undoubtedly be good. Many hunters have come into the valley for the express burpose of hunting and reports received thus far indicate that they are having good success. The opening of the season has kept the County Clerks office in San Bernardino busy all the week and a large number of hunters have made application for tags. * "Can one hunt .or trap quail destroying crops?" is the old question whidh once again has been put up to the San Bernar dino District Attorney's office. It seems that in several sections of that county quail are actually overrunning some of the vine yards. W. M. Bristol of High land, owner of a vineyard, has been trapping quail. The other day Game Warden James Vale got wind of the affair, and on interviewing Mr. Bristol from that gentle man that he was acting within his rights under the law. For a time it seemed as though an ar rest would be the result, but the matter being put up to the Dis trict Attorney the old law of self-protection was again enun ciated with success. State Farmer's Institute A State Farmer's Institute will be held at the University Farm at Davisville October 29, 30 and 31. The meeting will be significant in that it will mark the inauguration of a campaign of education with the direct object of letting the men and women, the boys and girls of California see and hear what is being done and what it is plan ned to do at this place for the advancement of their agricultur al interests. The opening of the University Farm marks a mighty stride forward in an up-to-date and progressive educational movement along practical lines. There will be present at this meeting men and women from all parts ot t!he State—individu als who have been successful in the practical working of their farms— who have made the busi ness pay— and these will tell how this success has been attained and will point the way -toward successful work and practice at the Farm. On the other hand, the experiment sta tion worker, the investigator, will be at these meetings to tell of his work and methods and thus both the practical and theo retical will receive their due meed of attention. Men who in the broadest sense of the Svord stand for material and education al advancement, the Governor, the president of the State Uni versity; tl>ese men will lend counsel and wisdom at the Davis ville meeting.

We found the Yuma Valley farmers ready to file claims for the damages they sufFered by reason of the Mexican intake lowering the water level in the Colorado river and cutting ofT the water from their farms. While there we visited Laguna dam and noted progress there. Also that all the work is being done on the Arizona side. We were told that the reason for this is that they expect to change the plans on this side and put in headworks and sluiceways big enough to divert water for all the lands in Mexico and the United States that are irrigable from the Colorado on this side of the river. I learned positively that the S. P. wants to sell out to Uncle Sam and that Secretary Root's present trip to Mexico is quite likely to bring about important changes in the map hereabouts. No doubt Mr. Root has a bill for damages up his sleeve that looks like thirteen millions. If he gets all he has gone after without it, all right. If not, he will dotibtless present his bill before coming home. At any rate, all those people in the Imperial Valley, who have damage claims against Mexico, should lose no time, but should file them at once. F. G. HAVENS. I H.
