FAR3I AXD GARDES. YAVAPAI: As the Spring is now opening it behooves onr citizens who wish to make their homes attractive and pleasant, to take advantage of the propitious season to set out trees, shrubbery, flowers, etc., that which costs so little, but makes ''IIome" bo sweet. The climate of Prescott does not admit of the culture of tropical plants, but the hardier va rieties can be grown here very well. We see an earnest disposition dem onstrated by quite a number of our ladies to beautify their homes and have, each for themselves and those who are most dear to them, a little paradise in which to live, shut off from the outside world, to feast pon their own pure thoughts, sur rounded by the most lovable of na ture. No home should be without flowers. Miner. PIXAlu- The supply of fat beef is increas ing. The recent rains have given ns an abundance of fresh grass on every hillside; sheep, cattle and Btock Op PVPrv ftpsrrmtirtn fi i 1 linniv food near our town. The result of short drives, long hours to eat, is a rapid increase in the avordupois of our beef steers. Citizen. PIMA: P. M. Hilton is in from his stock ranch; he reports his sheep in splen did condition; he will have about 17,000 pounds of fine merino wool; Trill commence shearing in a few days. The McGary Bros, are al Teady shearing their large heard. Jlr. Hilton says the country south is one grand plain of pasture for miles in all directions and that mil lions of stock could feed, and yet there Tvould be plenty left. The favorable rains this season are bringing forth an hundred fold in every quarter of this county. Star. D. G. Sanford came in on the 8th from the Sonoita valley. Farm ers all busy, grain well advanced; he .lias eighty acres cf barley and fifty of wheat all in splendid condition, from which he expects to reap a rich harvest. Star. From every section of the county we have the encouraging news of abundant grain harvest iu prospect. Pneblo Viejo Valley, is rich and luxurient in grain fields. There will be not less than 3,000,000 pounds of wheat and barley, and prob ably 1,500,000 of com this season. So much has that section been fav ored with rains, the people are plant ing large quantities of vegetables, all of wL:eh w'll find ready market in the mining districts. fSt ir. SuWr'.bt for il.i I!krai.i. In continuance of our account of Cave Creek Mining District, mention should be made of the mines owned by Messrs. Jarrett and Julian. These are situated in a small group of high hills lying immediately south of Mr. Jarrett s ranch, an J are the first mines reached in traveling the road from Phenix. The ores consist principally of sulphurets of copper, lead and antimony. This statement refers, of course, to the percentages. In values, the metals gold and silver far exceed the baser metals. The majority of the ores iu the above mines are such as may be tvaJily reduced by smelting, and the accessibility of the property and its proximity to wood and water render it extremely valuable. Situated north of the above mines and about two miles distant, there from, in an air line, are sundry claims owned by D. IL Ri.-sue. The most notable of these is the GENERAL GRANT. This ledge conforms nearly to the general formation of the district, although it is four or five miles west of the center of the principal opera tions, and in a range of mountains somewhat detached. Dave take a sort of bashful pleasure in exhibit ing numerous specimens! well flecked with fi-ec gold, which are the pro duct of this ledge. In Cave Creek canyon, about a mile and a half above the crossing of the New River road, or three miles above Jarratt's ranch, is the PHENIX LEDGE, Owned by Messrs. Shaw, McDonald and Kent It is a recent location, but is far from the least in impor tance. The quartz is a most un promising looking element, having the appearance of very ordinary limestone, and a piece of float or cropping would scarcely attract a second glance from tlie average prospector, but in the course of a moderate amount of prospecting, the company have taken out some splendid specimens, the free gold appearing everwhere, as if sprinkled from a pepper box. In the former article mention should have been made of two claims owned by Judge Hilands, the CONTINENTAL AND STONEWALL. These are ledges of gold bearing quartz located southeast of, and par allel to the Golden Star. They are not very wide, but make up iu rich ness what they lack in size. It is a maxim among quartz miners that a fourteen inch vein is just as good as a six foot, if it is rich enough, the boys believe that the judge will be perfectly safe in proceeding on this principle, for these veins cer tainly show what might be termed "condensed richness." As they are not more than three or four hundred feet from the Golden Star, the probabilily is suggested that their geological history is the same as that of the latter ledge, A large number of ENXWRAGING PROSPECTS In this district, still remain unno- . . j i . i . uuueeu. ana inis prompts mention oi i the fact that Cave Creek Distrii ' challenges the nrneral belt of the Pacific Slope to show more flatter ing results from a like amount of labor. Most of its mine, are owned by poor men, and what little has been done, has been mostly by hard knocks put in by the owners them selves. There is not a more inviting field anywhere for even moderate capitalists to operate iu develop ment and mining. Suppose, for in stance, that the three or four mines on Gold Hill were controlled by one company, with a working capital of S60.000. This sum would be abunbant to put a ten stamp mill, and run a tunnel 400 feet long. This tunnel, if properly located, would at once completely open t wo ledges at a depth which would as sure an abundance of rich ore and place the mine on a dividend paying basis, If the present owners con fided their business to the proper hands, would they have to part with but a small portion of their interests to secure the above capital. As it is now, no individual has the capital to undertake operations which are essential to proper development, and the ''extravagance of economy" is forced upon him. Such work as is being done at present, if done by a wealthy companywould be considered extravagant and wasteful. Such a po-'Jiility of economical mining as is preetito-j t.-ld II:!' :? rtrely i'lt-t witli. T IPTOP MINE Feed Yard and Livery Stable.
