The hiiilditiK, which in a temporary
structure, wan erected in an incredible
nhort space of time, not requiring
longer than half a day to entirely coin*
plcte it. and in thin rc»pcct, lift well an
in Kcveral others we think, breaking
the record, not only in California, hut
in the United State* an well.
Some twenty-one children reported
for duty the firnt day, which number
incrcaHul to twenty-three during the
lir*t mouth. The nccoiid month ojm.mi
cd with an increase of five additional
pupils, which number will doiibtlcsA be
coiiHtantty Increased.
Not withitta tiding the fact that v
large portion of the children have been
out of hcliool formauy months and are
composed of children from all ftcctioiii
of thin Mate and Arizona, they got
down to work with a vim and determi
nation to make up for lont time, which
in indeed commendable.
The patron*, the trtintvc*, and the
California Development company have
done much to give the nchool a good
Mart, and the di*trict is under great
obligation* to County Superintendent
li. J. Baldwin for the active intcrcrfl he
ha* taken in the formation of the di»
trict, and for hit kiudueftH in tending
i he district tome very fine map*,
charts and school furniture, including
over twenty de»k*. which he not only
licnt without cxpeViftC to the district,
hut at a considerable expense to him

charge* on »aid articles.
The Ini|>crial district next year will
have shool houses, grounds, etc., which
will he second to none in the country,
and which will be in keeping with the
gigantic growth of this young country.

IT is evening. Far to the southwest,
an hour or two ago there were seen
two tpota, closely associated, which
Kccmcd to hold in •iiftpeiiaioti the rays
of the nun. By degrees these apotn
developed into clouds of dtfst, and then
there came into plain view two wag
ons filled with colonists. Drawing up
to the town, their hornet* were ttoou
staked, a tent wan pitched and a camp
fire wa* cooking the first meal of the
new comers in the laud of their adop
tion. The population of the Imperial
settlements was increased by six stal
wart men, while their productive |>ow
er wan enhanced by the horses and
mules which had brought them from
I<o» Angeles.
Day by day this scene is enacted,
and day by day the number of inhabi
tants of the Imperial tract is increas
ing, the net gain in population proba
bly reaching five persons a day, while
there are indications that the rate will
increase as water is more widely dis
That there is not a large as&emblage
in any of the towns is due to the fact
that mont of the new comers begin
wdrk oil their land or enter the employ
of the company at once, and are thug
scattered over the immense area of the
Imperial tract.
