Comparatively few people are aware of the agricultural
development that is going on in Arizona, especially in the
southern part of the state; not in the valleys, those narrow but
rich areas where for years it was thought the agricultural ac
tivities of Arizona would be forever confined. A great deal
of work is being done on mesas which were thought to be irre
claimable, to say nothing of what is being done in such stretch
es as the San Simon and Sulphur Spring valleys, where there
was no apparent possibility of securing water for irrigation.
A great enterprise is now in progress along the line of the
Southern Pacific east of Maricopa. Stiil another is going
on farther east. There has been much activity in this county
and large acreages of land that were believed to be worthless

Within a'few weeks active construction work will b'giri
