A most unusual thing for this
region at this time of the year was
the licuvy rain that set iu early
Wednesday night and kept steadily
falling that night, all day Thurs
day and a pa it of Thursday night.
The precipitation was .84 inch.

for last Monday was not held, it

John McCormick, a rancher near
I.aidlaw, was in town during the
week and reports crops in his sec
tion as looking very well and mak
ing rapid progress toward a liouuti
ful harvest. One interesting fea
ture of which Mr. McCormick
spoke is the presence of dew on
crops where in previous years there
was none. He remarked, that on
his field of rye, high above the irri
gating ditches and where there has
lnjeit no water artificially applied
this season, the dew is so heavy
each morning that "you could
wash your hands iu it." Which
shows that irrigation is filling the
air with a great amount of mois
William Rauman of San Rernar

of his neighbors nt home who arc

Section, The Impcial Valley is a
very fertile country and grows
crops the year aiouud, but it K so
excessively hot during the summer
that these people desire to move to
a more moderate climate. Mr.
Rauman stated that the thermom

Visit to llaswcll-fJucrln Ranch Takes
One Into Prosperous Community.
A llullctin representative took a
huiricd trip to the Haswcll-Oucriu
ranch Sunday afternoon and spent
a couple of very pleasant hours
looking over that fine ranch aud
the adjacent country. It was his
first visit to that immediate vicinity
and he was surprised to sec the
amount of development that has
taken place. To one who had
never been there it was also a sur
prise to sec the large, scope of level.
land that stretches through that
The Haswcll-Oucriu ranch, with
W. R. Wilson as foreman and local
manager, comprises 400 acres, of
which about 90 acres arc now in
cultivation. The larger part of
these 90 acres are included in an
oat field, which makes a fine show
ing and will give n good yield.
The crop Js not yet far enough ad
vanced to enable one to make any
reliable estimate as to thp yield,
but it tvecrtain to be a good one.
The oats stand about about waist
.high, with good sized heads form
ing1. They were seeded June 8.
Mr. Wilson seeded in with the
oats clover and timothy, which is
making a good start and which will
make a fine fipld of hay next year.
Iu one part of the field alfalfa was
set (led with the oats on Tunc 8 and
a sample of this brought to town
measures 20 inches of growth nbove
ground with n good strong tap root.
The work of clearing additional
acreage on this ranch Is going'
steadily forward. This new land
will be under cultivation, next year.
Adjoining the Haswell-Gucrin
place is the ranch of C, M. Red
field, which is rented by Mr. Wil
cox'. Jlere also was n heavy stand
of oats which Mr. Wilcox expected
to cut this week. The Redfield
place has a prosperous look, is well
kept up, the ditcjies arc iu good
condition and everything has n
Also adjoining the Haswcll-
Guerin ranch is the large Johnston
holding. This fine place, with its
large buildings, woven wire fcuce
surrounding the entire ranch and
with a large acreage into crop cer
tainly looked fiue from a distance,
but the writer did. not have time to
give it as close a visit as he would
like to have done.
Rancjiers nre busy at work
throughout that entire section and
are showiug what the country can
raise awl what a strong contrast is
furnished between the plains of
barrcu sagebrush aud prosperous
homes, yvith fields of grain.
