The assortment is an extensive one. including towels, table cloths, cotton crash,, twine of the Sea Island type, hard seine twine, rolls of cotton bat ting, carpet warp, comforters, wrap ping twine, sail twine, cotton rope, sash cord, sewing twine, cylinder rope, etc. The California Cotton Mills Com pany is making this display, and J.

The Cotton Mills Company, writ ing to Mr. Chappell, says that the mills there have now worked up nearly three carloads of Imperial Val ley cotton, and that it is proving ex cellent material. The company states that it can use, under ordinary con ditions of the trade, .from 10,000 to 15,000 bales a year. Speaking of the general demand, the company says Do You COTTON to This?

Co. and Supt, C. K. Clarke, of Water Company No. I, and estimated roughly the cost of building permanent structures of con crete to take the place of the sys tem. Plans for work of this char acter have been made by engineers Cory and Horrmann in anticipation of the time when the company should be able to secure the money required to rebuild the system, and it Is es timated that about a quarter of a mUlion will be sufficient to safeguard the vulnerable points and insure un interrupted water service to the val ley. No time will be lost in start ing work at the most Important points. H. T. Cory, who has been general manager of the C. D. Qo., will now be relieved of his duties. Some time ago Mr. Cory, who has labored un ceasingly, asked to be relieved, but until now it could not be arranged. Mr. Cory is now 111 in Los Angeles. When hts condition has improved suf ficiently to permit it, he wjll take the foreign trip which he has had In mind for some time and which his condi tion demands. The people of Imperial Valley will regret Mr. Cory's depar ture but his hard work. of the past four years, many times beyond his strength has earned for him the right to take a vacation.
