They know, be cause after crossing the Colorado riv eY at Khrenberg they struck straight east across the Dome Rock range through Gonzales Pass and then down into Tyson valley where they passed the famous old Tyson well, and That's Quartzsite. The sold is there ail right. There can't be a reasonable doubt about that. That lnic Rock range which the auto racers crossed through Gon zales Pass after leaving the Colorado river contains so the people of Quartzsite claim the greatest gold deposit in North America. All that 1 1 would venture to say. as an expres- ( sion of my own judgment, after rid- I ing and tramping the field every day for two weeks, is that It impresses me as truly great gold ground phe- nomenal for the extent of the min-1 eralizatioti. j The Plumosa Range. The Plumosa and the Dome Rock j ranges are parallel with each other, I and Wth are parallel with the Colo rado river. Both are well mineralized gold, silver, copper, lead, cinnabar and vast quantities of iron. Roth. as to structure, are anticlinical ranges with eruptive granite cores that is the type, but both are very much broken and irregular. Roth are about fifty miles in length and are well mineralized at intervals from end to end. They constitute the easiest and most promising fields for prospectors that I know of in North America. The Climate of Paradise. For eight months of the year from the first of October to the first of June the region has the climate of Paradise. The rest of the time it is torrid but even then, ' peculiarly healthful, in fact, rejuvenating. A coat is seldom needed in the winter if one is stirring ubout. Fig trees flourish and bear abundantly in the Tyson, valley. That tells the story of I the winter climate, for the fig will ! stand only a little more freezing than the orange. But Frank Veter, who ' has a small commercial orchard wut ered by windmills near Quartzsite. is now experimenting with oranges. Ilet will probably succeed. All this to indicate the character of j the region as a place to live and make a home. . , Water. In desert countries, water is a tiling that takes precedence even of gold. There Is plenty of water everywhere in the Quartzsite coutnry, . but none of it comes to the surface or if it does, the greedy sun quickly hogs it "P- The Tyson valley is a syncline with the sedimentary strata which show on the flanks of both ranges as its bed rock therefore a fcrough, a cistern, a subsurface lake, fifty miles long by fifteen wide, where the scanty rain fall of the region ten to eleven inch es a year is impounded beyond the reach of evaporation. At Quartzsjte it is thirty feet to the water and nine windmills are pumping there conr stantly. Nine hundred or even nine thousand windmills could not make a sensible impression on that vast cistern of underground water. And it is water you can drink till the cows come home so pure and sweet. A Chance For You. There is apparently watt-r enough in that vast Tyson valley subsurface lake to mill all the ores in North America. And the greater part of that vast gold deposit in the Dome Rock range is, of course, milling ore. And they haven't got the mills nor the money to buy them. So there you are,(and there is your chance to catch on. That's where op portunity opens the door to you if you have got a little of the needful and know how to play the game. Railroad in Sight. When those racing cars reached the head of Uaudeloupe Pass on the Plu mosa range, twelve miles out from Quartzsite, they were within sight of the new railroad station, Vicksburg. looking seventeen miles away across the wide Plumosa valley.

If. ttvwver, the ot-wrvT is at O. just beyond the apex of the shadow, the disc of the moon will appear smaller than that of the sun. and will not cu:n pteteJy covir it. A brilliant ring of e sun's disc wjl then be seen surrounding" th black disc of the moon, and the ecups is called an annular or ring eclipse. The eclipse of Iecember 23 be gins as an annular eclipse, next changes to total, and finally become annuiar again.

It is only that part of the path on the round eartn Oetwr'n H and C which is sufficiently near the moon to be brought within the shadow. To observers along the portions AH and CD the moon will appear too small to completely hide the sun; to those at the points H and C the moon :tid sun will aprear to be of ex actly the same size, so that for an in stant the eclipse will be total, while to observers between B and C the sun will be completely hidden tor a short lime; at no point will the total eclipse Jast for more than about 11 seconds. f"' What Is known as a Lunar Appulse oc curs on the afternoon of December .

There is. as mentioned, a strange faith (half hope and half supersti tion apparently like most undemon strated faiths) among the old-timers In Quartzsite.' that the Dome Rock range, which those racing cars lately crossed through Gonzales pass after leaving the Colorado river, contains tho greatest gold deposit In North America, and each . of them thinks he has located the apex.

It Is a great bit of country t" look at amazingly attractive t,.uund. I don't think !t could fail to catch the eye and enlist the interest of any judge of mining conditions of the geological conditions which produce ' mineralization. They are there and clearly visible at the most casual inspection. And the gold Is there too, there isn't a shadow of doubt about that fact. I state it as a fact and not as an opinion, because I have seen it. Dry Washing. It Is being mined there today by dry washing. It has been mined that way there, in gulches and along the flanfts of the orange., over a very extensive area for forty-eight years. At one time there were from 2000 to 3000 men in the field recovering the gold in that way. Those placer miners were almost all Mexicans. To this day you can see their old pits and shafts and trenches and tunnels as proof of the vast amount of work done all around the flanks of the range. They honey comb the frround. A Deserted City. The wealth of those placers built the city of La Paz, down on the bank of the Colorado river, eight miles from the "washings." tA Paz in its heyday was the most populous, the richest and the best built city In Arizona. During the ctvll war it was the largest center of population In the territory. But placer miners are no mads, always ready to "get up and dust," When the washings petered out they scattered like leaves before the wind, and La Paz faced her sud den and ignominious finish she was deserted. Today she Is a melancholy ruin; not a soul abides within her walls- nor has for forty years. She lis on the earth still, as a ruin, but no J longer on the map. The sand-laden 5 winds are siowiy ourying ner ana a sturdy young ntesquite rorest nas grown up in her once bustling streets. That's why the Quartzsite country, the La Paz country, died so young and ljas remained so long forgotten. It was really the . first mining region successfully exploited in Arizona after the American occupation. It was a whirlwind center of ambitions and energies before Arizona was separated from the territory of New Mexico, and now La Paz is deader thari a door nail, with none but the senti mental historian to see that her grave is kept green. The Great Parker Country. The new railroad, the Arizona and i California, whicn will soon connect Phoenix and Los Angeles, by way of Parker, on the Colorado river. 150 , miles north of Yuma, and which is now operating to that point with a $1,000,000 bridge across the river, just completed, will put Los Angeles with in eight hours of Parker and within nine hours oT Quartzsite, for the line is preparing to build a branch up the j Tyson valley to Quartasite. twenty seven miles. Quartzsite is only one section of the great Parker country. There are oth ers. Its predominant metal is grold, the others copper, mainly, but sorpe gold, some silver, much lead and a world of vary pure iron ore, a specu lar hematite. That is only on the Arizona side of the river. The "great Parker coun try" stands for both sides and the California side is a fine mineral field, too, but I can't speak of that this trip; another time. It will perhaps facilitate business inquiries if I give the names of a few responsible owners of Quartzsite properties: G. L", Ingersoll, mining engineer and a large owner; William Keiser, a very Intelligent operator and a large owner; W. E. Scott, mer chant and owner of some of the most promising property; Charles B. Ge- j nunu, the patriarch of the camp and. a large owner: Joseph Bowyer, mana ger of the Valenzuela mine; S. M. Wilson, merchant and a large owner; all of the foregoing "at Quartzsite. Col. Dick Darling, owner of the great Mammoth gold group, a man .of the widest mining experience, residence 1755 West Twenty-third street, Los Angeles; B. T. Hickman, owner of the Success group, office 422 I. W. Hell man building. Los Angeles, an Ohio man and a crack miner from way hafk with lone experience 'in Colo rado. Montana and Nevada. Any of these would, no doubt, cheerfully an swer, letters of inquiry about their great camp. . With a smelter at Parker, one of the sure things of the future, this camp will be able to furnish the new railroad a large tonnage of shipping ore immediately, but the chief thing tVi insnre the rapid development of tbe camp's great wealth of gold is thv installment of milling plants, and to that end take it from me that the district has watea to burn, if you pump it. . o ' W.
