The work ia eiubelliwhed with fine etprav. itifaof the irineipiil cities, mountains, valleys, mining camps, rauohes, fruit furoib and tKo uutnoroua beautiful Beetles and pleasure tosorta which abound in this BHlubrious climate and future ol dorado of the south iveet. A fiutteriutr t ribute is paid to Grant County 8 wealth prouuemj? resourcoa, her incomparable sanitary advuntaces. beautiful aeenery, broad rangea, bright, rapid rivers and enterprising people. We are credited with 200,000 head of cattle and numerous Í locks of sheop upon our ranges; an annual production of $1,000,1X10 in Rold bullion and 300,000 in silver ore, besides rich mines of lead, copper, opals, turquoise and other rare and valuable gemstoues. We tind the following in regard to Silver City: The county seat is Silver City, situat ed at the foot of l'inos Altoa, in the beautiful Chihuahua valley. All the northern half ot the couuty and parts rectly tributary to it, and it outfits doz ens of surrounding camps. It lies at the end of a branch hue of the Santa l'o road, and enjoya too advantages accru ing to every large supply depot. Its bunks, court house, hoBf itnln, stores, publio schools, hotels and other build ings of a public and semi-pubho charac ter would do credit to an eautern county neat. Since the opouing of the Santa Kita copper mines in IH00 it baa been a town site, but the energy of the last dec ade has done moro for its advancement than oil the previous years. Situated as it ia. surrounded by milla and concen trators, almost in the very center of the mining region, its stability and Drosper ity ore assured. Large business blocks are built or projected, and during the year ltf'J3 about twenty-Hve business Louses and handsome residences were built within the city limita. It tasa number of civio and social organizations. Its water-works, lying about two miles from town, assure the city not only of a good and pure supply of water, but, as there ia a uonuul pressure in the tire hydrants of 1H pounds to the inch, im munity from the ravages of that danger ous element is certain, the water is pumped to a high reservoir by powerful machinery, it is lunen irotu a tunnel which drifts Burcws bd rock the full width of the valley. Under anything like ordinary circumstances tho supply is more than ample. Building material is very cheap as the surrounding moun tains furuisu lumber and stones ol the beat churuoter. This method of developing a water supply ia worthy of a complete and tech nical description. Space however dots not noruiit this, the water is stoptied on the bed rock by Buu-urains. Ihe lo cation is iu o w ide swale or shallow val ley leading down from the l'inos Altoa towards Silver City. No water what ever runs on the surface. This under drainage ia an imtiortnnt fuctor in the economic development or the orid west. Silver City ia a notuble example. Not only has she an ample supt.iy for domes tic and sanitary purnosea of a largo city, not dependent on chance Bliowera, but through her pumping system she la re lieved as much aa potituble Irom üuuger of tires. The court bouse, the hospitals, the fine blocks that line the business streets, the churches, the commodious and 3om fortable hotels, of which there are four. give the city a metroiiolitau air. The salubrious climate makes good the locul claim as a sanitarium. Situated at about C.OOO feet elevation, at about 35 decrees 15 seoonda north latitude, pro tected by encircling niouutaiuB, all the conditions are perfect for ttie preserva tion of health or the restoration of the invalid to sound physical existence. The springs are early and winters mild, while .1 . m i., i ,t tile SUIlllllOlB BIQUOVIII ll'lllU. Alio ltt New Mexico, itude is the same as that of the north em const of the Cult of Mexico, tiut the heat ia templed by on elevation of more than a mile above the sea. The air is o.onated, and the influence of the nine forenta ia folt like bulsum in every breath. The invalid who bottloa here w ill tind his iutereht ia life reviving, lie will mix with a brainy, cultured popu lace, and in a short time will Und bun unlf diM'.UBsiutf busiiiess. lie will lind ground cheap and material plentiful to build a home, to which purpose the um versal hospitality of the people impel hi in, and in a bhort tune ho will foe himself a Useful member or ft growing and thriving eominuniiy. Silver City Ian wuudoifully Lright future, Statistical evklenco goes to show very conclusively that tho climntic conditions most inimical to the development and increnso of clironio pulmonary Jirienso aro, on tbo one band, n life on tbo ocean away from tbe land, and on tbo otber, residence at a certain nlti- tudo, eny from 3000 to 9000 ft-ot, wbere tbe sunlight is abundant throughout tho year and tho air comparatively froo from aqueous vapor. As a natural cousenuence tbe medical profession has not been slow in testing and profiting by the therapeutic effects of those conditions that present such favor able prophylactic results, and it may be said with little fear of con traduction that today the climatic treatment of chronic pulmonary disenso is tbo ono most relied upon to bring about early and perman ent results. Cod liver oil, iron, the hypo phosphites, out-door exercise, and the many other tonic measures so often resorted to for the purpose of removing debility, aro coming to bo .regarded as bridges from emergency to emergency, rather than obstructions stemming tbo implacable tido of disenso. Cures produced by these agents have been observed, but they are as uncertain as they nro uncommon, and only 6erve as iurtuer argu ment why those who desire more than temporary alleviation should Beek to attain this consummation by immediate and permanent change of residence. When wo come to tbo question of the plodding medical prnctioner thus surrendering a remunerative caso for the sake of principle and tho benefit of tho said case, and the still more important one of the patient loavincr a comfortable home, perhaps changing the char actor of bis business occupation, to go to another country with strange people and eurroundings. it must be remembered that it is a chance for life, aye, renewed health and vigor through an indefinite period of years. And this chance for the patient is to bo balanced against prolonged invalidism with death its happiest outcome. It is not intended hero to dwell upon tbe remartauie immunity from pulmonary diseases enjoyed by 6ailors and other seafaring peo ple, as is evidenced, for example, by tbe very low death-rate from these affections iu tbo American nud British navies, an immunity duo in a larco decree to the salti ness and freedom from contamina tion, of the respired sea air, to gether with the constant exposure to sunlight. But as a life on tbe ocean, except for single voyages, ia not practicable to tbe majority of invalids this mode of treatment becomes aptilictiblo only to a miuimium of cases. Many places throughout the United States have been extolled as health resorts for persons threatened with or buffering from phthisis, and a catalogue even of the most prominent of them would take up more epaco than can be pormittod in this article. But few of them have been found beneiiciul lontrer than one or two seasons of each year, and as a result the uu offending consumptive, constantly seeking a suitable climate, bus be come, Iik3 the accursed Jew in tho lcLreud. a wanderer ou tho fuco of tbo earth. Tbo concensus cf opinion fjiven forth by those who have studied climatology both in the old and new world has been well expressed in the following syuojibis drawn up by Dr. Charles Deniuon, of Don ver, Colo., which may be regarded as tho TU'cetiiiiiry requirements for uny cliwuto in which- tubeixulouu patients can expect to attain per manent health: 1. Dryness as opposed to mois ture. 2. Coolness or cold preferable to warralh or beat. 3. Rarefaction 88 opposed to sea-level pressure. 4. Sunshine as opposed to cloudiness. 5. Variability of temperature an opposed to equability. CONFIRMATORY rROfOSI.TI0N3. C. Marked diatbermncy of tho sir to be preferred to tbo smoky atmosphere of cities of the denso air Etrata of moist currents. 7. Radiation and absorption of boat bv rocks and sandy loams bet'er tbau latent absorption by water and damp clay soils. 8. Mountainous conil-Miratiou of country (quick drainage) con trasted with tbe flatness, etc., of level sections. 9. Frequent electrical changes of atmosphere, also moderate winds (except in quite cold weath er), preferable to continuous still ness of tho air. 10. Inland altitudes contrasted with Bea air (total abseuco of laud influence): but in certain cases sea voynures and island resorts to be preferred as compromise sub stitutes for high altitudes. In answer to tbe question, is there any portion of our country that combines all of these Various requirements? we would answer emphatically, yes; iu almost tbe whole area of tho territories of New Mexico and Arizona, in por tions of Colorado, and tho moun tainous districts of California, may be found climates that con form to the foregoing require ments. But New Mexico possesses them to a greater degree and over a larger surface of country than of the others. New Mexico covers an arta of 121,200 square miles, with an ele above tbe sea as follows: clouds gathering about noon and preeipating at 2 or 3 o'clock. Tho climatic conditions referred to ns necessary for tuberculous patients, as has been said, are found throughout tho Territory with tho exception of the highest peak a ' Reports from tho following six Now Mexican towns have been se lected for comparison: Santa Fe, 7.02G feet; Las Vega, G,0:)3 feet; Albuquerque, 1,950 feet; Socorro, 4,5('.5 feet; Silver City, 0,000 feet, and La3 Cruces 4,000 foet. They aro arranged in order accord ing to latitude, Santa .Fe (lat. 85 (leg. 41 miu.) being farthest north and Las Cruceg (lat 32 deg. 17 rain.) farthest 60uth. Albuquer que, Socorro and Las Cruces arc in the valley of tho Rio Orando, which fiows directly southward through the middle of tho Terri tory. Santa Fo, Las Vegas aud Silver City are in mountnin- ous districts, tlie two former in the northern r.nd the bitter in tho southwestern portion of the Terri tory.

As tho requisite conditions of climato aro not marked under an altitude of 3.0C0 feet, and as no portion of the Territory is lower than 3,500 feet, it behooves us to compare tho different resorts and examine into their relative merits. There are a number of placea in New Mexico with elevations of over 7,000 feet which are compara tively dry, but as many are iu mountainous districts they are apt to have too much precipation, and are thcreforo to be avoided by tbe in val itb A glance at the map of New Mexico will show that it is about midwav between tbe oceans, and rf contains ou itti western border, running its whole length from north to Bouth, the great contin ental divido, separating the watera that flow into the Facific from those that flow into the Atlantic. Its distance from tho oceana thus permits a largo amount of moisture to bo lost by tho winds as they sweep over the continent, becom ing quite dry by the time Now Mexico is reached. Thus the fal and winter winds which, laden with vapor from the Facific, make those seasons in California eno Arizona exceedingly disagreeable, loso much of their moisture in the latter territory on tho western slopes of the continental divido and do not reach Now Mexico until January, when rain ia pre cipatod only over scattered loca Tbe rainy suasou of New Mexico ., .i i.;' .1 comes at tno time tnai it is moti dosircd by tho invalid resident in midsummer, when over 0 per cent of tho total annual raiufal occurs, thus clearing the air of im purities that are most likely to do damage at tbia Benson, and adding greatly to the general cooluess of the weather.

Ti e foregoing figures are valua ble to the physician iunsmnch as they illustrate tho general climate of New Mexico, and because they enable him to point out tlie most desirable re3ort3 for tho different seasons of tho year.

Tho ideal winter resort of New Mexico is Las Cruces, which, with its tw in city, La Mesilla, ia located in tho famed and fertile Mesilla Valley, nbout twenty miles above the Texas line. It ia located directly on the Rio Orando west of. tho Organ mountains, which, in tho clear atmosphere, look liko hills three or four miles away, but which are really great mountain peaks fourteen miles distant and 8000 feet in height These mountuiu6are perforated by aluablo lead and silver mines. Las Cruces is a quiet little- town of 4000 people, a largo proportion of whom are Mexican. A good hotel built upon tho inosu or high land ou the edge of this town would bo debwrving of a largo winter patronage, as Laa Cruces ia auite accessible, bein about two hours' ride from Fl 1 uso, lexas, With two or three exceptions tbo Accommodations are poor. A plan for a cottage sanitarium twenty four miles east of tbo town is still iu embryo. In summer a few invalids have found it beneficial to camp out ou tbe higher ground at the foot of the Organ mountains. After the first of April tbe bent at Las Cruces becomes very disngreo able, the temperature in tho un clouded sun running far above 100 dotr. Fahr. It ia not a summer resort. On tho other band, wo find the cities of Las Vegan and Santa Fo presenting most of the require ments of the patient with weak lungs who seek a summer resid ence. Being in mountainous dis tricts the summer rainfall is greater thnn iu tho cities of the valley, and this, together with their higher altitude and latitude, causes tho totnperature to bo much lower than that of other cities in the Territory. These rains would bo very objectionable to the in valid were it not that they aro of short duration, and that the bIojio of the ground and porosity of tie soil cause tho water to flow off and disappear at a very rapid rate, leaving tho ntmopphero quite dry and freo from impurities. As a consequence there ' are very few days during tho rainy months in whic'i a patient may not find a few hours, morning or evening, to venture out. The mean temperature of thoso two cities is about that of New York City, St. Louis and Salt Lake City, whilo their summer temper ature is about that of Detroit and Chicago, but experience has 6howu tbat here as iu other high, dry alti tudes the cold is felt to bo less penetrating iu winter and tho heat far less oppressive in summer. A residence in this Territory aunng both winter ana summer has conviuced the writer that for equal temperatures tho winter's cold and summer's beat aro far more easily borne and less intense ly felt tbun in the eastern aud southern stales a difference duo to tho great dryness of tho climate. A few miles from tbo town of that name are tho famous Las Vo gas Hot Springs, which have be come a delightful summer resort, and are deserving of a greater rep utation than they now enjoy. They have been found to bo very useful in rheumatism and gout, as well as many cutaneous nud syph ilitic diseases. In the treatment of the latter tho bath is soft, hot mud is a conspicuous and advan tageous feature. Tbo waters are strong in lithia. Before passing on to Silver City, which wo believe to bo tbo best all-the-yeur-rouud health resort, it may bo well to say a word or two about Albuquerque and Socorro. These, liko other New Mexican towns, have great advantages of climate. They are both situated ou tho Rio Grande, and tho latter town is, commercially speaking, but a Binall edition of the former. Albuquerque ia perhaps tho most important, us it ia undoubtedly the most progressive city of the terri tory. Tho position held by these two placeB, climatically, is a sort of mean between thoso already mentioned not as warm in winter as Las Cruces, nor as cool in sum mer as Las Vegas, Santa Fe and Silver City. Perhaps it would be woll to describo them as pleasant Absolutely Pure. A cream of tartar bakinrr povub.-. Highest of nil iu leavening strerii;i! Lt test United States Govern meal food Jicjwrt.

We now como to Silver City, a mining town of 3,000 inhabitants, iu tho southwestern portion of the Territory, with an elevation of 6,000 feet. It ia located partly on the hillbides and partly in an ar royo or open valley immediately surrounded by bills about 200 feet higher than tho tow n, and more remotely by mountains on the north somo 2,000 feet higher. The natural fall of tho main street is 200 feet to tho milo. Its peculiar location gives it a great advantage over other New Mexieuu towns, more particularly Albuquerque, Socorro and Las Cruces, inasmuch as the surrounding billa cut off the hard windu that are so disagreeable at all Beasona on aeuouut of. tbe dust they carry, but more partieu buly in winter, when tho element of cold is a serious consideration Dubt and wind etorms aro much less common at Silver City than in tho valley of t!m Rio Grande, and only an imi-lid can tibtify to the tusiigreenbii m-i-s tit t ticii con ditions. The waler for tho sup ply of tho town is intercepted by a sort of under'Touud dam about a mile above, and ia supplied iu iron pipes.

I short time nfter the disnppcui- anco of tbo floods the atmosphoi and street aro dry again as befoi Unless it bo Santa Fe, ther ; probably no city iu New Mcxk c to which are applicable tbo follow ing conclusions of Dr. Buchanan, who has investigated the subject of phthsis in Surrey, Kent and Sussex, England: "There is less phthisis nintni, populations living ou pervious soils than among populations liv ing on impervious soils. "There is less phthsis among populations living on high-ljini' pervious soils than among puj 'illa tions living on low-lying perviuu.-i soils. "There ia less phthsis anio;;,: populations living on sloping im pcrioi.s eoi!s than among popula tions living on flut . iiri ervic toils."
