THE OASA GRANDE VALLEY.
Information for Those Seeking Homes j In the Garden Spot of the West. Pinal count v was organized in 1875 from portion of Pima, Maricopa and "Vavapui counties, and contains an area of 5,3f square miles, or S,4J5,fi20 acres, ono-third of which could be made productive by a systematic storage t f the surplus water now running to Wiist. Next to Maricopa it is the most im portant aKricultnrnl county inthe Territory It it traversed from east to west by the Southern Pacific railroad, and a branch of the ereat Santa Fe system is now approach ing from the north. The objective point of this road is a connection with the Sonora road, f the same system. The Southern Pacific is also building in this direction from Temie.and it is confidently believed that work will not cease until the Beer Creek oal fields are reached and connection is made with another branch of that road run ning from Howie to Globe and now complet ed to Fort Thomas. Thus it will be seen that Pinal county Is the theater of railroad buildina: at the pres ent time, and inside of n year Florence, the county seat, will be A BAIL. ROAD CENTEK. At present it contains a population of about 1500, but with the completion of these two railroads and the Butte reservoir no eity in Arizona can approach it for natural advantages, and a lanre increase in popula tion will follow. Florence is ut an elevutiou of 15n3 feet above sea level, situated near the Gila river, twenty-six miles northwest of the railroad station of Casa Grande, with which it is connected by an elegantly equipped daily stage line. Going and coming stages run by the old Casa Grande ruins, and passengers arc allowed a short time to 111 siect them. There are many handsome pri vate residences in Florence, several brick stores, good hotel, an excellent graded school employing four teachers, churches, scret societies, a Commercial Club, a news paper (the only one in the county), and the handsomest court house in "the Territory. Here is held the United States Court for the district composed of Gilo, Graham and Pinal counties. The streets are lined with shade trees, which impart an air of comfort ou the warmest days. FBODLCTS OF THK VALLEY. Unlike the Salt river, the waters of the iila are fresh and pure; the soil contains no alkali, is a deep, rich gray ash, esecially adapted to the growth of the prune, olive, almond, poach, fig, pear, apricot and fruits of all kinds, which pay largely on tne invest ment. It is also the natural home of alfalfa, which prows in the most nrolitic manner. The grape does exceptionally well In this valley, and wine and raisin culture is destin ed to become a prominent industry. Citrus fruits have been cultivated to a limited extent ; there are a number of orange trees in the neighborhood of Florence which bear their golden fruit each year without pro tctti.ii. nnil n fow Ht.A imlm trees are also in full bearing. The season is from six weeks to two mouths earner than twutnernauior. niu, which gives fruit growers an appreciat ed advantage in THK EARLY MARKETS. The absence of fogs and nightly dews is a formidable olwtacle to the destructive and unsightly scale-bug, and the fruits of the valley nre all bright ana clean, ah tne agri cultural products of temperate and semi- tropic zones are easily grown here, the long seasons giving a succession of crops that double or treble the productive value of the lunu. PRICES OV LAND. Improved lands, with government title and water right, can be bought for from $20 to jo per acre, according to location aim ltn- Wl J CllldlfcSv All I 11 IIIIUICMIIIIO utlpUUUl hood and to the south of the Casa Grande ruins there are thousands of acres covered with a heavy growth of mesipiite timber yet oen to settlement. These are among the choicest in the valley. W ater in inexhausti ble aiinntitv is found at a deoth of from twenty to thirty feet ; in fact, a river seems to be flowing underneath. Here is a splen did opimrt unity to take up and improve land with a pumping system of irrigation, w hich is said to be successful on small tracts. However, with the completion of the Butte reservoir, pumping will be a thing of the past, and it is only mentioned here for the purpose of showing what can be done, and to magnify the further fact that what was once -considered Alt UNINHABITABLE DKSSBT is In truth the most productive 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 in the head gate, the bluffs which form the gorge being only separated by a paltry 2.30 feet. A country is drained through this narrow canyon iiuu miles square, representing 40,000 square miles, or larger than Maine and Massachusettscomhined. The rainfall is suf ficient to till the reservoir twice a year, and the land to be brought under cultivation is F ractically limitless. This may read like a airy tale, but it is every word true, and has been verihed time and again. CASA GHANDB BESKRVOIH. The reservoir of the Casa Grande Valley Canal company is the largest in the territory. It covers a surface of li00 acres, with an aver age depth of 12 feet, and contains about eight thousand million gallons or water, it is sit uated fifteen miles southwest of Florence. A levee of earth has been thrown up across a depression in the plain 14,000 feet in length, 125 feet in width at the bottom and 25 feet in width at top, 2 to 1 slope on each side, and an average height of 25 feet. The waste is regu lated by cast iron pipes sieet in diameter, set in solid masonry, regulated by gates and tower. This reservoir cost $150,000, and sup plies water for 6,000 acres. Meteorological Statistics. The signal service of the general govern ment maintained a station at Florence from 1H74 to loH2. The reports covering the period from Juiy, 1880, to April, 1882, gives the follow ing statistics, which may betaken as a safe guide to the prevailing temperature given during the series of six yeas: 18t.

In a residence of sixteen years (n Arizona the writer has only known two persons to be overcome by the heat, and they recovered. 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 New lork. The Signal Service bureau has recognized this fact, and reports the difference between the apparent and sensible temperature to be full 30 degrees. At nearly all times there is a pleasant breeze; the nights are invariably cool in the summer, and out-door labor is performed without serious discomfort to either man or beast on the warmest days. Very seldom does the thermometer get be low the freezing point in winter, and in the gardens of Florence to-day are castor bean pluuts two years or more old, UNTOUCHED BY FBOST. 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- ment& no climate on earth is equal to South- ; ern Arizona, and there are numbers of active, industrious citizens, with but one lung, who came here yeurs ago, expecting to live but a few weeks. But for all that, the wonderful Cana Grande valley is something better than a health resort. That Krtion of the great Casa Grande Valley lying along the Hue of the Southern Pacific railway In the vicinity of Casafiramle and Arlzola is at present, and with good reason considered one of the most desirable portions of this magnificent Southern Ari zona. Great changes have been made in the appearance of this part of the valley during the last four years. It wus about that Ion ago thutthe Florence canal' was completed and the work of actual improvement begun. It is useless to deny that under our present water system there is not h fug like a surti cient water to irrigate this vast body of land THK CASA GHANDE VALLEY CANAL is forty -three miles in length and covers 60,000 acres of land, about 7.000 of which are under cultivation. It is so constructed that it can be easily enlarged and its capacity in creased.

J u, 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 curing- a few weeks in summer. It is proposed to remedy this by the con struction of a huge reservoir at the Button, fifteen miles northeast of Florence. Com petent engineers have examine! and reported upon the scheme and pronounce it feasible. PROFESSIONAL CARDS- DR. ANCIL MARTIN, JjJYE AND EAR. Phoenix, Arizona , W. H. GRIFFIN, AWYER.
