-"Tv : ■— • -TV
J^ FIRST— The Imperial Canal System is the largest in the United States and has the water to irrigate more and better 3jf
3j£ land than can be found elsewhere on this continent in one body and under one system.
% SECOND— The soil is the most fertile — more so than the soil of the celebrated Nile Valley, which has been success- 3ff
fully cropped for thousands of years.
3jf THIRD— The water in abundance is now on the ground re,ady for use, and the supply will ever remain practically 3fr
3jf unlimited. 3j£
3s£ FOURTH— If the government had built the irrigation system it would not have furnished the land and water at a less
3Jf cost, or on more reasonable terms. Jjjf
3J£ FIFTH— As an alfalfa country, it takes the lead. No locality can produce more tons of alfalfa hay to the acre than 3jf
3J£ can be produced here— six to eight cuttings per year, with one to two tons per acre to each cutting. 3j£
Jjf SlXTH— Cattle and hogs can be raised and fattened here more cheaply than elsewhere in this country. Stockmen 3ff
should not pass by this great opportunity. $fe
§§Jg SEVENTH— Wheat and barley grow to perfection. These crops come off early in May or June, and then a second 888
I summer crop can be raised if desired. Farmers have a chance of a life time. J§nss
EIGHTH— EarIy fruits and vegetables will ultimately become a great and paying industry in the Imperial Settlements %S
when transportation facilities are extended. SIS
NINTH— A large portion of the land is so level that it requires no work or expense to get it ready for flooding. There Ss
is here all grades of land from level land to that which requires leveling. The best is being taken fast. Over safila fil
100,000 acres are now gone. First conic, first served. Level land can yet be had, but the sooner you file the 5§)S
better land and more desirable location you will get. 7§t£j
TENTH — The water right has been selling at a low figure, and it is still supplied at one-tenth of its intrinsic value, fwdii
