Her Rich MinesThe La Fortuns and King of Arizona Great Mineral Wealth Yet Un developed Castle Dome Lead Mines. The County Lies Directly in the. Hain Gold Belt that Begins hi Alaska and Ends in Mexico. The following article is extracted from Governor Murphy's annual report to the Secretary of the Interior and is an interesting presentation of facts re garding some of the mineral rcsourcei of Yuma county, and a description ol two of the richest gold -mines: alsc something of the Castle Dome lead mines: KING OF ABIZOXA. The pold-bcHrinprpPrty.knovn for a time as the Olea'.i'ii ti.. sr, r- io thy Kin f Arizc.r.. ilii'iuc .uc? Company, ueoi poratioR orgauizoi nl?r the ia.w.s of the Tern tory or Arizona, villi a capitalization of 5,000,0ft shares ct a par value of Si each. This compunj owns four full claims the Hoir.estuke, the liiuj. of Arizona, the Last Hope, and the Mucht Bueno. This district lies about thirty Hv miles dae east of thd Castle Dome Land ing, on the Colorado River. It is north o. the Gila River and about JO miles from Mohawli Summit, on the Southern Paciiie Kahroad. This is the w-aiest station on the railway There aic several other locations beside: those conveyed to the King of Arizona. The Jbomestuke locaXion covers the chid workings up to this date There is on thi. claim a strong vein of sold-bearingr quartz. Thi lode or vein has three well-marked divisions or layers. On the hanging wail there is a hot t layei from 1 to 35-s inches wide, which averages abbu. .82,800 per ton in vaiue. ICexl osiow this there is a middle layer or bod;, of quartz j;'ooi.t 3' inches thiok, which wil i n verac about siotx &100pcrton in value. The mnah-der ot ih( veia, so far as it Ls expo-seti by the shaft, aver ages about 321 per ton. Test holes have been drilled 3 feet deep into the foot wall, and all are in ore. The shaft by which the exposure ot the nature of the vein has been made is fXh leet deep and follows the dip of the hangin; wall a distance of 40 feet easterly and 30 feei westerly. These show a continuity of vein, having the same characters and values develop ed by the shaft. The hill rises rapidly both cas. and west of the shaft so that the height of backs on the lode above the drifts is greater than a the shaft. At a point, about 30 feet west of the shaft and on a level with the collar of the shaft the vein has been crosscut from wall to wall, showing it 18 leeU wide at that point. The ore in the crosscut is of about the same grade as that in the shaft. The cropnings of the vein may be followed for some 700 feet of the Home stake shaft to a second opening, known as "The King of Arizona Shaft." This shaft is about 50 feet deep, and by means of drill holes the vein Ls shown to be 11 feet in width and has an aver age value of 410 per ton. At a point 300 feet east or the Homcstake shaft a tunnel has been made which crosscuts the vein 10:) feet below the sur face. At this point the hanging wall vein is 1? inches wide and has an average value of $50 per Jon. ThetunneL then passes through 30 feet of vein matter running about S3 pei ton, thenee through 7 feet or ore carrying ?28 per ton to the foot wall. The total distance iroin hanging wall to root wall along this tunnel i.i 40 rest. A drift Itas been run along the foot wall to the Homo stake shaft at a distance of 30.) feet, and the average value of th ore exposed is 814 per ton. IA FOBTCJfA MLNC In the early days of gold discovery of Califor nia, 1&18, when the news reached the gold miners ofSonora, there was a general exodus of the able-bodied men who were able to get away northwest to the new El Dorado in California, and the state of Sonora contributed many men to the mining population. Thev took the old road, which was known as the""camino real," from Estancia and Altar northwestward, nearly parallel to the gulf, following- the mountain ridge known as the Gila range, just north of our present bouwciry. The road led to Yuma, and inpussiug-ttre Gila range they went within a few feet or yards of a very modest outcrop of quartz which no one seemed to consider of suf ficient value to merit any attention. That hum ble and insignificant quartz outcrop is today the outcrop of the great Portuna mine. It iS Situated On f.hn ttTOtlvnrd ulrvnn ! at the base of the range of mountains called on-T oului; ui luk uiu uiap.s me vina range. This trends northwesterly and reaches nearly to the Gila river at the point now known as Blaisdell The railway in its course to Yuma passes around the northwest point of this rane "Where the rocks are exposed at that point they are mostly of homogeneous granite, of gray color and weathered out at the surfaces, which however; are much pitted as if by decomposi tion of some soft substance. But beyond these low-lying hills of granite there are big outcrops f T? -wliicli. to the experienced eye indicate stratified formations. They are indeed strati fied, for the bulk of the range southward and southeastward is composed of regular stratified laminated, hard gncissic rock. I use the word tgueisslc" in a very general and comprehensive sense, for you can describe these rocks with much more accuracy if you localize them as mica slates and hornblendic slater, with inter polations of quartzite beds, especially in the upper part of the scries, with green sta'ins, sup posed to be stains of copper and decomposition of copper ore; which they probably are al though there arc peculiarities of color, and some yellow colors, which indicate to me the presence of some other mineral, popsiblv tel lurium, which by its decomposition has'given these-colors. The fact remains, however tlfcit the bullion from the upperpars of the-vein-contains more copper than it now- contains in the lower levels of tnemihn- The workings which have been carried on here have developed a condition of things which could not be foretold from an inspection of the outcrop. The vein or lode appears to be a chimney, not a contino ous ore body, nor a continuous win with an ore lo5y or chimney or chute upon it. As re mark the outcropping points indicate that there is no very great longitudinal extension of this ore body. The vein is remarkable first ia this limited out rrop; second, in its continuity in depth, its con tinued satisfactory richness, and the promise it gives of enrichment by further veins dipping into it on the foot-wall sides. Some facts in regard to the product or yield: The ore paid from the surtace. The product or crc extracted up to the time has been about SO tons per day, which is sent to the 20-stamp mill, each stamp of which crushes about 4 tons in every twenty-four hours. The extraction is chictiy and largely by power drills. A force f 80 niea is employed by this mine and mill. The greater part of the labor underground and mfamg is done by compressed air. The lode, 1 was told, was 0 to 15 feet wide. This large space permits the use of power drills- to srreat advantage. In the material hoisted there are fragments of the wall rcclcs. some of which are thrown out, but many pieces pass through the mill. They would prefer to reject most of this wall rock, but it would take more time and ex pense than it does to mill it. and there is a chance or fomc of it containing gold. From these SO tons or rock crushed daily the average product is perhaps 48.000 worth ot gold per month. Some months they have produced as high as 290,000. In the region or the Fortuna mine the Xorma tions appear to be wholly or mica slate and hornblende slate, with some arenaceous layers Ike old micaceous sandstones and quartzites. The mine is surrounded by black hornblendic slates and mica slates, dipping southward and southwestward at an angle or about 45 degrees, and these slates are very evenly laminated, ridge alter ridge. The figurative phrase, "A green eld age." h boia picturesque and suggestive. It likens us to trees, which, instead of being bare and leafless in age, are still vigorous, and giving leafy shade and shelter. What a contrast between this helpful and beautiful old age and the old age that is like the withered tree with only here and there a leaf to show that life lingers in the trunk. How can this useful and attractive old age be attained ? The first essential is to keep the stomach in a condition of sound health. It is not the quantity of' food we eat but what we digest and assimilate which nourishes the bod'. When the stomach and other organs of digestion and nutrition are diseased the food eaten is only imperfectly digested, there is loss of nutri tion and the body loses strength and vigor as a natural consequence. This loss of strength makes itself appar ent in physical languor and weakness and lack of inter est in affairs follows close on loss of energy. When once the grip on active life is loosed it is only a few steps to doting senility. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery cures dis eases of the stomach and other organs of digestion ?.nd nutrition. It enables the perfect digestion and assimila tion of food, and as a result the body is properly nour ished and is made strong in the only way in which the body can be made strong by the nutrition extracted from food. No medicine can make strength. All strength must come from food. So-called "strengthen ing medicines" are for the most part stimulants, which are particularly injurious to those of advanced years. There is no strength in- stimulants. There is no strength in anything but food, the nutrition derived from which in the form of blood feeds every tissue of the body. Containing no alcohol, neither opium, cocaine nor any other narcotic, Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is the ideal medi cine for persons of all ages who are weak through inadequate nourishment. 1 s J9 S ;53 "Have purchased some of your valuable medi cine of h. B. Spencer, of Blackstohe. Va., and it has helped my wife so much thai we do not know how to praise it enough," writes Mr. Victor h. Haydenr of BlacSrstone, Nottoway Co., Va. "I cannot express my gratification in words. I also had been, suffer ing from indigestion so badly that I could not work more than half the time, but now can work every day and eat anything I want. Why? Because I took Dr. R. V. Pierce's Golden 'Medical Discovery. It h?s put new life and energy in me, restored my health and made a man of me once more. I used to weigh 170 but had gotten down to 144, now am, back to 160 and will soou be back at my old weight if nothing happens. Your medicine has done it all. 1 cannot thank you enough for j'our advice, and think if it had not been for your medicine neither my wife nor myself would have been here man' 'ears. By the help of Providence and Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery we think we can stay here a good many years. You can' use my name any time or place you wish, to let the people know what Dr. Pierce's medicines have done for myself and wife." " When I wrote to you for advice, I was feeling very miserable with not simply one ailment but general debility," writes Mrs. Martha Jones, of Claremont Surry Co.,Va. " I purchased a bottle of ' Golden Medical Discovery ' and also one of ' Favorite Prescrip tion ' and a bottle of ' Pellets.' I soon began to improve and con tinued taking them until I was feeling so well i discontinued. That was last spring, and I continued feeling as well as could be expected of an old lady seventy-three years of age. The hot sum mer was hard on me and I commenced" to feel the effects of it. In September I went on a visit, was taken sick, and had what the doc tors called bronchial fever and cough. It was next to an impossi bility to raise the frothy mucus. When I was able to get to the steamer I came home in a 'very weak condition. I immediately commenced taking the ' Golden Medical Discovery ' and ' Favorite Prescription,' and now after four weeks have passed since I came home I am so well I can help my daughter about the house. I have so much faith in your medicine I feel that the number of my days have been prolonged by it. I think no medicine equal to yours for old people. It makes their declining days easy and cheerful. I would say to the aged especially, take Dr. Pierce's medicines, they will help and cure also." Accept no substitute for "Golden Medical Discov ery."

The following report from the direc tor of experiment station, is published as giving a fair resume of the conclu sions which have heen reached in re gard to agriculture in this territory: One of the mostencourajjiufr signs of tho times in connections vilh 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- arc so often observed in purely mining communities. Although but a small percentage of the total area of Arizona Is . under cultivation, yet when the octual 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 wiil have land in excess of t?ie water supply available for irrigation, without which agriculture-can, excepting in rare instances, hardly be considered. Out of about 72,800,000 acres inthc Territory only 5,700,000 acres are privately owned, of which about 450,000 acres r.re under irrigation ditch. For the total amount t.f land under ditch, tlsere is not sufficient water in all instances to insure crops-, butia 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 iesilcn, more tian usually gocd, 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 Arizouar, as is usual with the oils of arid regions, are rich in the elements of fcrtili ty. requiring only the ever-ncedful water, skill, and industry in their management to secure abundant returns. The fertility of cultivated soils in irrigated regions is further assured by the depositc 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 iu connection with the future of our agriculture. The most marked advantage fn connection with agriculture and horticulture, especially in southern Arizona, is the climate. Prom January to June the temperature resembles that of spring and early summer in the latitude of Ken tucky. From June to September the slimate is of subtropical fervor, while from September to November there is a second mild season of tem perate weather. The winter season, from Xov. 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. I Strawberries, which flourish in Greenland, may be fo-nnd on the same land with dates and palms I from Sahara. Alfalfas the great forage of tho arid West, flourishes alongside wish wheat, corn, and sorghum, respectively characteristic of Minnesota, Illinois, and Kansas. Oranges, lemons, and olives from California may be found in the same ncighoorhood with peanuts and sweet potatoes from Virginia. In brief, mauy 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 tcmperatc-rcgion crops flourish, fsuck 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- "NERVE WASTE"3 One of the most hopeful books on nerve weakness ever issued is that en titled "Nerve Waste," by Dr. Sawyer of San Francisco, now in its fifth thous and.
