THE CASA GSANDE VALLEY.
Information for Those Seeking Homes In the Garden Spot of the West. Pinal oomitv was orsrnnized in 1875 from portions of i'iraa. Maricopa and Yavapai counties, and contains an area ot a.aJstu:jre miles, or S,35.5J acres, one-third ov wnicii could be made productive by a systemat ic, storage of the surplus water now running to -waste. Next to Maricopa it is tnc n-.oot im portant agricultural comity iuthe Territory, it it traversed from etit to wet liy the Southern Pacific railroad, and a bruneii pt the great Santa Fe system is now epproaeu i2 from the north. The objective point of this road is a connection ith the fc.o-.iora road, of tko same system. The bout hern Pacific is also building in this direction from Tempe.Riid it is confidently believed that work w ill not cease until toe Deer Creek coal fields ai-s reached und connection is made with another branch of that road run ning from Bowie to vilabe and now complet ed to Fort Thomas. , . Thus it will be seen that Piaal county M the theater of railroad building at tho pres ent time, and inside of a year Florence, tua county seat, will be A KA1L30AD CBBTBR. At present it contains a population iof about 1500, but with the completion of these two railroads and the Butte reservoir no ity in Arizona caa rtpproack it for aatur-al advautatreji. and a la'jc increaso in popula tion will follow. Floreucc Is at on elevation f 1553 feet above sea level, situated near the ttila river, twenty-six miles northwest of the railroad station of Casa Grande, wth which it is connect:! bv an elegantly euuipped daily stage line. Going end eonunij stases rua by the old t usa uranuo nuw possesgsrs are allowed a short time to in spect them. There are many handsome pri vatelresidences in Florence, several brick stores, good hotel. a excellent graded school employing four teachers, churches, secret societias, a Commercial Club, a news paper (the only one in the county), and tne haadsainest court house m tho Territory Here is held tho United States Court for the district composed of iila. trauam and Pinal counties. Tho streets are lined with shade trees, which impart an air of comfort on the warmest days. r-BODL'CTS Or TUB VALLEY. Unlike tho Salt river, the waters of the 5iia arc fresh and pure; tho soil contains no alkali, is a deep, rich gray ash. esiciaily aduptedtothesTowth of the prune, olive, almond, peach, fig, pear, apricot and. fruits of all kinds, w hleh pay largely on the invest, ment. It is also the aaturul home of alfalfa, which grows in the snout proline manner. The grape does exceptionally well in this vallev. and wino and raisin culture is destin ed to become a prominent industry. Citrus fruits hava beoa cultivated to a limited extent: there ore a number of orange trees ia the neighborhood of Florence w hl -h bear their golden fruit each year without pro tection, and a few date palm trees are also in full bearing. The season is from six weeks to two mouths earlier thau southern t alltor Bia, which gives fruit growers an appreciat ed advantage in IHl EARLY MABKET3. The absence of feys and nightly fiews is a formidable obstacle to the destructive arid unsightly scale-bug. and the fruits of the valley are all bright and clean. All the agri cultural products of temperate ami scmi--tropie zones are easily groa n here, t ao long seasons givinz a succession of crop t.iat double or treble the productive value of the land. PBICI8 01 LAUD. Improved land, with government title and water right, can be bought for from -0 to (50 per acre, according to location and lin- Erovement. In the immediate celghiior ood and to the south of the Casa Grande .ruins there are thousands of acres covered w-ith a heavv growth of mesquite timber yet - open to settlement. These are amoag the choicest in the valley. Water in inexhausti ble quantity is found at a depth of from twentv to thirtv feet; in fact, a river seems to be flowing underneath. Here is a splen did opportunity to take tip and improve land with a pumping system of irrigation, which is said to be successful on s:nall tracts. However, w ith the co-.npietiou of the Bone reservoir, pumping will be a thing of t.ie past, and it is only mentioned here for the purpose of showing what can be done, and to magnify the further tact that what was once considered A3 UKI53ABITA3LK DE3EET Is Intrnththe most prod uctive land on the globe, and that there is water in abundance to bring every foot of it under cultivation, only waiting for the magic wand of capital to develop it. There is no water-storage scheme on the Pacific coast that has one-half the natural advantages and so few engineer ing difficulties as the Butte reservoir. Here nature has built the abutments in ever-living rock, and all that is left for man to do is to put ia the headgate, the bluffs which form the gorge being only separated by a iia'.t.-y 4) feet. A country is drained through t his narrow canyon 3iu miles square, representing 40.UUU square miles, or larger than Maine and Massachusetts combined. The rainfall is suf ficient to till the reservoir twice a year, and the land to be brought under cultivation is practically limitless. This may rcd like a fairy tale, but it is every word true, and has been verified time and again. CASA G2A5DS BE3EKTOIB. The reservoir of the Casa Grande Valley Canal company is the largest in the territory. It covers a surface of PjOO acres, with an aver age depth of 12 feet, and contains about eight thousand million gallons of water. It is sit uated fifteen miles southwest of Florence. A levee of earth has been thrown tip across -a depression is the plaia 14.000 feet in length, VSi feet in width at the bottom and 25 feet in width at top, 2 to 1 slope en each side, and an average height of 25 feet.

Meteorological Statistics. The signal service of the general govern ment maintained a station at Florence from 17 to The reports covering the period from July, ISM. to April, 1682. gives the follow ing statistics, which may be taken as a safe ruideto the prevailing temperature given during the series of six yeas: UssO. liean.

Their condition, however, was more the result of whisky than heat. The air Is so dry here that a registered temperature of 110 degrees is not as oppres sive as 80 degrees in St. Louis or Kew York. The Signal Service bureau has recognized this fact, and reports tha difference between the apparent and sensible temperature to bo fulls JO degrees. At nearly ail times there is a pleasant breeze; the nights are invariably cool in the summer, ami out-door labor is performed without serious discomfort to either man or beast on the warmest days. Yery seldom does the thermometer get be low the freezing point in winter, and in the gardens of Florence to-day are castor bean plants two years or more old, JTHTOUCHED BY IBOBT. Orange and lemon trees require slight pro tection during the winter for a year or two, until the wood is sufficiently hardened. While it is a popular thing for one to say that he is "not here for his health," it is an undisputed fact that for all pulmonary ail ments no climate on earth is equal to South ern Arizona, and there are numbers of active, industrious citizens, with but one lung, who eame here years ago, exjiecting to live but a faw weeks. lint for all tnat, the wonderful Casa Grands valley is something better thau a hea'th resort. That -portion of the great Casa Grande vallev lyirrj along the line of the Southern Paeifie raitway iu thevicinity of CasaGraude and Arizoln is at present, and with good reason consi lered one of the most desirabie jjortionsof this magnificent Southern Ari- j zona. Great changes have been made in the appearance of this part of the valley during the lust four years. It was about that long ago that the Florence canal was completed and the work of actual improvement beun. It is useless to deny that under our present water sv.st.em there is nothing like a suili- cient water to irrigate this vast body cf lund TUB CASA G3ANSS VALLEY CABAL U fovtv-three miles in lencth and covers tjO.tXS) acres of land, about 7.1KJ0 of w hich are under cultivation, it is so construf;tca tnat it can be easily enlarged and Its capacity In creased. A reservoir covering l.i00 acres, having storage capacity of eight billion gal lons, Tn the southeast corner of township 6, range 8, gives ample supply of water the year round to all farmers located below it, but those above suffer by a shortage of water during a few weeks in summer. It is proitosed to remedy this by the con struction of a huge reservoir at the Kuttes, fifteen miles northeast of Florence. Com petent eugizicershaveexainined and reported upon the scheme and pronounce it idusible. In a Nutshell. From the New York Woi lu. Kc.v York, New Jersey and Ken tucky cast fifty-eight electoral votes for McKinley, one of Kentucky's votes going to Bryan. New York, New Jersey aud Kentucky all went Demociatiii last week. Had McKinley been a candidate last week instead of last year the popular vote in these three Democratic States would certainly have been cast against him. Notv, deduct these 58 electoral votes from the 271 which Mr. McKinley re ceived, and there are left 213. Add these 53 votes to the 176 of Mr. Bryan aud he would have 234. That is a majority of 21 in the Elec toral College. In other words, the Democrats do not need to gain another State, They need only retain these three New York, New Jersey and Kentucky and they will eleet the next President! The Prospect. I From the Washington Star. "Do you think," said the man who had bought a large tract of arid land, "that I shall be ablo to water this waste?" ' I dunco," replied the native. "It strikes me, though, that there's a heap tetter chance of your wasting the water." 50 YEARS V EXPERIENCE TRADE MARKS rfm tf4'V D EtIGNS rrf f i Copyrights Ac.
