The Gila valley extends from the Gila canyon near the junction of the San Pedro river, west erly to the east bank of the Colorado, a distance of slightly exceeding 250 miles. That portion of it situated in the county of Yuma, known as the Lower Gila valley, is about 100 miles long and from 2 to 10 miles wide, all of which is suscept ible of profitable cultivation. The river from which it takes its name cuts the valley in two. Its watershed extends some 30 miles north and upward of 50 miles south of its channel, the land from either extreme inclining more or less rapidly toward the stream. The Gila traverses a marvelously fertile country, very great in extent, and splendidly adapted to the cultivation of nearly all the products of the temperate and semi-tropic zones, besides many of the fruits common in the tropics. Nor is this longer a matter of idle speculation, for flourishing ranches in various portions of the valley, drawing water from several important canals, amply demonstrate the magnificent results that will ensue should the water supply be rendered permanent, equable and adequate through appropriate storage systems. This consists of a broad expanse of tillable valley land, sometimes overflowed by the river, which is at times mighty uncertain, and a steep range of volcanic hills coming close to the high ways, for a dozen miles or so, hot. heavy, sandy. It Is hardly fair to say sandy as it is really a friable alluvial soil of grayish hue and loose texture. Several ranches are passed, showing that the Gila bottom is cultivated. With irri gation every square mile of the Gila valley is capable of producing prolific crops of grain and semi-tropical fruits, as well as cotton and sugar In great abundance. The river is able to fur nish all the wat'Jr needed and a good deal more. Ir would take no great in englneern; and ad a vory large s.iun oi nuirmv either 10 con SUSS-, Price 5cts JIl struct reservoirs or lakes in which to receive and store thc overflow. There are natural basins or dry lakes into which by simple means the water could be conveyed. The lands situated in and about the Gila val ley may conveniently be classified as follows: First, the bottom or overflow lands; 2, slightly higher valleys, lands subject to no overflow; 3. mesas or sloping uplands: 4, high but compar atively level plains: 5, mountains. The bottom lands, as well as those slightly higher, stretch along either side of the Gila and Colorado rivers for varying distances north and south, until they meet the more elevated mesas which rise from the valley. The bottoms lie directly along the river and are subject to inun dation annually. Immediately following the subsidence of the waters the local Indians were in former times accumtomed to plant corn, pumpkins, melons and other vegetables. These spring into maturity with startling rapidity, rarely failing to yield bountifully without addi tional irrigation. .The custom is occasionally followed by resident farmers to this day, with excellent results, although but a single crop can be harvested. These bottoms form 25 per cent of the valley lands, and may without difficulty be secured from further invasion by a system of dikes and lev( s If deemed necessary and desir able. Tl:2 soil tnroughout the valley is a rich brownish yellow sandy loam, generous, mellow, porous, with a depth ranging from 0 to 20 feet, the whole resting upon underlying strata of gravel und sand that readily carry from the surface such excess of water as might otherwise prove injurious to seeds and growing plants. Concerning the geological formation of these lands, the following from the report of the citizens' executive committee is sufficiently comprehensive: There is unmistakable geologic evidence that all this land during seme prehistoric period was covered with water, constituting in fact an euormous lake, the surfaces rising in places to upper portion of the outskirting mesas. The soil lying at the bottom was made by the washing and erosion of the surrounding mountains. The scda from the decomposed vegetation, the mag nesia and lime from the magnesium-lime forma tions, and the potash from the decomposing granite rocks were carried with unceasing re gularity year by year, until deposited in the bottom. Eventually upon the disappearance of the lake, the rich fertile alluvium, than which there is none belter, was left to reward the efforts of the modern husbandmen. But nature not yet satisfied with her handiwork, directed the accumulation of the detritus washed from the distant mountainous region. As a result, the soil is extremely rich in the elements best adapted to thorough fertilization, for it contains a certain amount of organic matter which, on decomposing, further enhances its agricultural value. By constant overflow and change of channel the deposits are evenly distributed over considerable .areas, the process continuing through centuries. These soils are further en riched by decomposed organic contributions, including the sandstones, marls, limestones, shales, etc. Besides the ingredients mentioned, a chemical analysis shows that iron, ammonia and phosphoric aeid enter" into its composition in the proportions best adapted to add to its productive qualities. The extremes of tempera ture are somewhat greater than on the high lands, but there is also more moisture. The bottom lands arc so easily cultivated that it is not uncommon, after clearing the sur face from the brush and stubble, to pass over the ground with an ordinary cultivator a single time, afterwards sowing to grain and grass. In three or four months large crops arc harvested, the soil meanwhile being entirely innocent of the plow. All plants seem to grow rapidly. maturing remarkably early. Indications of an cient ditches are apparent throughout the val ley, showing plainly the existence of irrigation works by the ancient Aztecs. Curiously enough, in certain instances, the identical routes of these long extinct people have been followed for codsideratablc distances by their modern suc cessors." THE VALLEYS CF THE COLORADO. Several miles above Yuma, in the neighbor hood of Explorer's Pass, near the Purple Hills, the great Colorado River Valley proper com mences. From this point northerly tne river is shut in by cliffs which, with intervening moun tain systems, absolutely preclude the possibility of canal construction. Passing southward, the cliffs arc seen to gradually disappear until they become merged in the low bottom lands. The bottom meanwhile widens with every mile until the ouir or California is reached. There arc large quantities of land which could be made productive were irrigation practicable. These are general fertile bottoms inclining toward the river and covered in spots with dense under- rowth and cottonwood and mesquite trees. Considerable of the valley is raised above the river as much as loo reet, and to this height water must be brought, as the bottoms are dur ing certain months completely overflowed by the waters of the swollen streams. The sou is extraordinarily rich and particularly adapted to the cultivation of sugar, rice, and all the tex tile plants, in addition to an extended list of tropical, semitropical, and temperate products. According to a careful chemical analysis, the fertilizing mud carried by the Colorado closely resembles that of the waters of the Nile, while its volume at low water has been estimated by competent authority as sufficient to easily irri gate more man i,o0,ooo acres." The lands of the lower Colorado River Valley have not boen developed very extensively, owing to the litigation over what is known as the Algodones land grant, which has been in the courts for the last decade. The vexed question has lately been settled by the U. S. Supreme Court in favor of the government. of Cod Liver Oil is the means of life, and enjoyment of life to thousands: men women and children.

Her Great Soil-- ResourcesSplendid Fine Climate. Agriculture One of the Important Industries of Arizona. No Fertilization of the Soil Neces-? sarySilt Deposited by Irri gation Renders the Soil Rich in the Element of -Fertility. The Climate Conditions Favorable to a Great Variety of flarketable Produce. The following re,port from the direc tor of the experint station, is published as giving a fair resume of the eonclu sions which have heen reached in re gard to agriculture in this territory: One of the most encouraging signs of the times in connections with Arizona is the growth of her agricultural interests. These interests, by creating a settled population and certain sources of wealth, insure the Territory, as a whole, against those excessive fluctuations in popula tion and finance which are so often observed in purely mining communities. Although but a small percentage of the total area of Arizona is under cultivation, yet when the actual amount and productiveness of these lands is considered. the place of agriculture among the industries of the Territory is very important. Arizona has and always will have land in excess of the water supply available for irrigation, without which agriculture can, excepting in rare instances hardly be considered. Out of about 72,800,000 acres in the Territory only 5,700,000 acres are privately owned, of which about 450,000 acres are under irrigation ditch. For the total amount of land under ditch, there is not sufficient water in all instances to insure crops; but in time there can be little doubt that the storage and development of water will lead to the successful irrigation of much more than the area under ditch. The future of agriculture in Arizona is, with out question, more than usually good, and for the reason that the conditions of soil, irrigation, and climate combine to produce an uncommon variety and amount of marketable produce, The soil of Arizona, as is usual with the soils of arid regions, arc rich in the elements of fertili ty, requiring only the ever-needful water, skill and industry in their management to secure abundant returns. The fertility of cultivated soils in irrigated regions is further assured by the deposite of silt brought upon the land with irrigation water. The problems of fertilization. which become so serious in humid sections, are therefore of much less importance here and not to be so carefully reckoned with in connection with the future of our agriculture. The most marked advantage in connection with agriculture and horticulture, especially in southern Arizona, is the climate. From January to June the temperature resembles that of spring and early summer in the latitude of Ken tucky. From June to September the climate is of subtropical fervor, while from September to November there is a second mild season of tem peratc weather. The winter season, from Nov ember to January, though subject to sharp frosts in southern Arizona, is not seriously or even uncomfortably cold. Owing to this combination of seasons a re markable variety of crops may be found in the same locality at different times of the year. Strawberries, which flourish in Greenland, may be found on the same land with dates and palms from Sahara. Alfalfa, the great forage of the arid West, flourishes alongside with wheat, corn, and sorghum, respectively characteristic of Minnesota, Illinois, and Kansas. Oranges, lemons, and olives from California may be found in the same neighoorhood with peanuts and sweet potatoes from Virginia. In brief, many of the leading crops of both temperate and sub tropical countries, which are not affected by a too arid atmosphere or by the frosts of winter. flourish in southern Arizona. In northern Ari zona, where the temperatures more resemble those of northern Illinois, many of the more dis tinctively temperate-region crops flourish, 'such as potatoes, apples, and various small fruits. When, with this diversity of products is coupled a healthful, and for the most of the year agreeable, climate, it will be seen that agricul tural in Arizona possesses distinct advantages.
