Of the two Saturday nights what a
contrast ! One full of excitement,
turmoil and distruction; the other,
full of calm forethought and la
bor and reconstruction. Saturday one
week ago, night settled down over a
sorrowing people 'and the hot ami
smouldering ruins of their homes and
business houses. Yestcrdcy evening
night settled down on the same peo
ple, but all were filled with brighter
prospects and firmer resolves. A
long and eventful week intervened
and done much in assuaging the sor-
rows, disappointments and heart-aches
caused by the ruin of one short hour
Sorrow and sunshine alternate, but
the darker the cloud, the brighter will
be its silver lining after it has swept
Down the Rio Grande.
riio first of the week, we made a
trip along the great railroad, as far as
constructed, down the Rio Bravo del
Norte. The road enters the valley
above Bernalillo and follows the val
ley down in a straight line as the
bird flies until it reaches the Jornada
del Muerto, crossing the northern
iri of this famous "journey" and
goes out through Grant comity and
Sonora to Guavmas and the Pacific
Ocean. From La Junta, Colorado,
where the road leaves the Arkansas
valley it crosses the broken and
mountainous portions ol northern
New Mexico to the Rio Grande, with
manv crooks and turns and doubling
back upon itself to find the easy
grades over mountains :;'id through
canons. But once in tu-j "valley, it
stretches out straight a .utow, for
miles ank miles, avoid; ., the short
bends and taking the gr:a'ul course
of the river. In a few days, the road
will be turned over by the construe
tiou company from Albuquerque
south, and regular passenger trains
run straight through to San Marcial
on the northern borders of the Jorua
da. The Rio Grande is an ugly, turb
id looking stream flowing shallow, at
this season of the year, over deep and
treacherous quick isauds. But its
murky waters are charged with agents
which in irrigation fertilize and en
rich the lands. One thing is promi
nently noticeable to the traveler for
this ynUey; thero is but a very small
proportion of he tillable lauds under
cultivation. Another fact is equally
as patent, thai wherever a 7spot of
ground is cultivated and watered it
nroduccs abundantly. This is true of
the most sandy portions of the valley
What it needs is men, farmers, culti
tors of the soil who make that their
sole business and source ot livelihood
Many persons who visit this section
and look at the sandy and barren as
pect of the uncultivated lands without
considering the fruitfulncss ' of the
cultivated portions arc apt to be. dis
appointed and form adverse opinion
of their great value But this is
reat mistake, for experiments, the
only true test of anything, prove their
nnbouuded and remarkable fertility;5,
Thus far, really, only partía
YTvfriments in farmiug garden
ing grape and fruit , growing
have been made in the valley. The
orchards, corn and-grain fields, vine
yards and gardens answer satisfactor
ily as to what these sandy barrens
will do when watered and tilled. The
land is rich and every inch of it can be
be cultivated from foot-hill to foot
hill on either hand aud throught it
entire length. The water can be
brough in canals from tho river, or
raised bv windmills from a few feet
beneath the surface. Let but a pop
illation of wine makers and fruit
growers from the farming districts oí
France ítud Germany go into this val
ley aud possess it, segregate the lands
into, ten twenty aud forty acre tracts
and plant it to vineyards and ouch-
ards and every foot of the valley wil
blossom as the vine clad fields o
France A perieclly pure climate
free from the moisture which in other
countries mildews the grape, thisv al
ley will be in the near future one of
the greatest-wealth producing regions
in tho United States. Its possibilities
cannot bo well estimated or even con
jectured. The boys at the depot, yesterday,
while waiting for the traius to come
