Is where your profits are sure, because Government Hill lies directly in the line of
. El Paso's progress.
EI Paso is building steadily eastward, because that is the only way it can grow.
Blocks and blocks of handsome new homes have been built on the Fort Bliss
Government Hill road during the past six months and many others are in the
course of construction.
The Fort Bliss-Government Hill road the mo.st magnificent highway out of El
Paso, is being paved straight through Government Hill. This roadway in addi
tion to Government Hill's unexcelled street car service and all modern conven
iences, all combine to make it El Paso's iriost popular residential suburb. '
Why not buy your lot now and reap all the profit coming instead of paying it to
the other fellow?
You can't afford to delay seeing Government Hill whether seeking a home or in
vestment and the sooner you see it the betterfor its going in blocks.
Prices now are $150 and up. Terms 10 down, 5 a month.

The Jarilla mountain district. New
Mexico, is getting very lively again,
after several years inactivity, due to
the present high price ol copper. The
By-Chance and Buckeye, .which were
discovered and owned by Eilly Gibbs
and Prall, of St. Louis. Mo about 30
years ago, are agajn in operation. This
property is nortn of the town of Oro
srande. The ores are copper sul
phides, .carrying gold.
Operations have also commenced on
the Lincoln, the Seven-Come-Eleven,
ana otner neighboring claims, under
the management of Beckham and
Gaylord, of El Paso. These properties
are also copper bearing, being crysa
colla and carbonates. They lie about
one mile northwest of the town of
Still farther norta nbout two miles
is the Garnet, owned by the Jim Fisk
illninsr company. It is belne oneratpd
i under the management of E. D. Ba-
ker. This property has a work shaft
I 500 feet deep, but the work is being
prosecuted at the 200-foot level. The
j main ore bodies are copper, glanze,
Ii red. oxide and black sulphide of cop
per, the last of which runs as high
as 69 percent copper, and $13 gold per
ton. One face four feet wide aver
ages 15 percent copper and ?10 gold:
and another 11 feet wide averages
j eight percent copper and $S gold. It
is claimed mat tRere is a large body
of milling or concentrating ore in the
Garnet mine, running 2 1-2 percent
copper and $30 gold. A winze is be

The Garnet is shipping three cars
of ore every two weeks, and has 12
men on the day shift and four men
on the night shift. This mine has
produced over $20,000.
The Jarilla district, which is the
nearest mining district to El Paso, is
situated in an Isolated group of hilis

Were Worked bj- the Zanls.
The Jarillas were worked hundreds
of years ago by the Zuni indians for
turquois- and gold, us evidenced by
ancient workings and a deserted vil
lage to the west, where fragments
of pottery are found. The Tiffanies,
of New York, did Some exploration
work on the turquois veins some 20
years ago. Subsequently, Amos J. De
Muels, "the hermit of the Jarillas",
located and worked the turquois
mines. He found a ready market
for the gems, and realized over $50,
000 up to the time of his murder by
a Mexican employe about 12 years
ago. Afterwards Pat A. Kelly, Tlios.
A. Kelly and Christ Yeager worked
the turquois mine and extracted
about $50,000 worth of gems.

Baird vein dips only 20 degrees and
lies in a bed of metamorphosed lime
stone just over an underlying contact
with manzanite porphyry. An incline
800 feet long follows' the main shoot
in the ore-bearing bed. This shoot
is called the "ore' pipe."
The Lucky mine Js west of tho Nan

foot shaft. The ore is found in garnet
rock at the very contact with por
phyry. v The Three Bears is just south of
Orogrande, is owned by a Philadel
phia company and is developed by a
vertical shaft 525 feet deep and five
levels. It is said to carry pockets of
gold and copper ore. Placer gold is
found in the gulch below the Nannie
Baird averaging $1 per yard. The

Helen Group Is Shipping 300
Tons a Month; Chance
Mines to Resume.
"Very little Is said about the Vic
torio mining camp, but it is becoming
a large shipper of ores again," says
Michael Hennesey. the veteran miner.
"The Helen group Is shipping 300 tons
of lead-sllver-gold ore a month. The
ore is hauled to Gage, a station IS
miles west of Deming, and about four
miles north of the Victorio camps
The shipments net about $15 per ton.
Shipments are being regularly made
by Mr. Bradley. The Chance mines
in the same camp will soon resume
great activity and the owners will
start up the smelter in Deming soon.
"The camp was named after Vic
torio, the Apache chief. The .principal
period of activity was rrom 1S80 to
1886, when the big bodies of lead ore
were being worked by George Hearst,
of California, under conditions which
would now be considered adverse.
The Chance and the Jessie, the princi
