20,000,000 ACRES OF LAND FOR
Sale in New Mexico and Arizona.
THE ATLANTIC AND PACIFIC RAILROAD COMPANY.
The Land Grant of this Company, in alternate
sections extends entirely across the '1 erntones of
New Mexico and Arizona, between the 34th and
6th degrees of north latitude. It is 650 miles long
and 80 miles wide and includes some of the best
grazin? lands of both Territories. In the valleys
are many desirable tracts of agricultural land, sus
ceptible of irrigation. A sufficiency of waterhas
been found wherever cattle and sheep have been
grazed, and large herds have been grazed in the
country ever since the coming of the Mexicans.
Wells have been sunk and good water has been
A stream of running water, the ban Jose, rises
near the summit of the Sierre Madre, and runs 75
miles eastward to the Rio Puerco, and the compa
ny's road follows the whole length of its valley.
1 here are numerous fine valleys opening into the
valley of the San Jose, flanked bv grassy and woo
ded hills, upon which there is an open growth of
small cedar and pinon. 'J here is an e nsivebelt
of good pine timber on the mountains, near the
railroad, and good springs arc found on both slopes
of the Sierre Madre. There is a large coal field
west of Fort Wingate which has been fully ex
plored, and which will afford labor fora large pop
ulation, there are also coal deposits on the eastern
slope of the Sierra Madre. Many varieties of buil
ding stone are found in great abundance along the
line of the road.
In Arizona the crazing areas are supplied wrh
good water, and the United States Surveyors, who
made the official surveys of the country, say they
are as good, if not better, than those of Wyoming
and Montana. The Navajo Indians grow conn
without irrigation, in the valrcys of the Puerco of
the West, on the Company's lands, and in the val
ley of the Little Colorado, also on the line of tlie
road good crops of corn, sorghum, oats, barley,
and garden vegetables are grown by irrigation,
the finest of potatoes, oats, wheat, barley and gar
den vegetables of large size and fine quality have
been successfully grown without irrigation on
the slopes of the San Francisco mountains.
On these mountains there is an extensive timber
belt, diversified by beautiful valleys and parks,
with good water and wonderful canons throuh
which the road passes. In fact, the whole of the
country traversed by the road is very picturesque
and beautiful, and many towns are being built
along its route.
The Valley of the Rio Grande, at Albuquerqc
is 5.000 feet above the sea, and the passes of th
Sierra Madre and the San Francisco -mountains, in
Arizona, have elevations of 7,300, witha depres
sion at Winslow. on the Little C olorado, where
the altitude is 5,000 feet ;the climate is mild and
saiubrous. Cattle and sbeep graze througboiit
