Mining: and Stock-raising are the
Chief Industries of a Growing"
Every country is like a bee-hive,
when it is overrun by drones it alls
back instead of advancing. "God
helps thorn who help themselves"
is often quoted, aua might be aptly
applied to tins country. A perusal
of V. O. Ritoh's Illustrated New
Mexico, shows a, va6t amount of
iacd -iritb inn il fortunes in . it,
and all this left unturned
Sierra county boasts of untold
wealth in her mountains; she pre
sents to the man of spirit, a field
where he can realize his wildest
dreams of riches. To gain the seat
of this wealth, work must be done,
nud no small amount of work
either, but great and hard work.
Good and hard workers are what
is needed to develop this county.
Men who are disposed to look upou
life es only worth living, when they
can'oheat the world out of a Irving
bs easy as possible, are not desira
ble citizens to either this or any
other county. The man wLo is not
afraid nor ashamed to take the
pick and spade in his hands,' and
who tjjts tUern to the right place
and keeps them there when he has
started; the man who will go on
without looking back, determined
to conquer, these are the citizons
who build up and impiove the
country, and make the community
proud they have such a man among
them. Oi these men it will be
said, "they lived there." When
men sit down complacently and
make no effort to push for places
in tho world, they invariably get
left and see the energetic and pro
greasive men reach the goal they
longed-for, but made no effort to
gain. As it is with a nun, so it is
witU a city, town or county, and
when the citizens .sit comparatively
still and make no effort to assist in
developing the country, they see
their more euergotio neighbors
taking the lead away from them,
Wake up Sierra, there in much
for you to do, and you have the
bone and siuew to make you a pow
er to ba fftlt in the territorial mon
etary market. You will not get all
your air-c.stles built in a breath;
it will take years to raise solid ed
ifices to be proud of, to snow pos
terity that real pen lived in your
times. Evry able-bodied man in
the county can go to work if - he
but decides to do so; you may not
gt managerships with fat sularies,
but you can take your picks ( and
ftoades and go into the earth and
foi?e ber to yield up her buried
treasures, and thus make your
selves rich and the county corres
pondingly so' We do not mean to
say that every man in the county
is idle, nor that any man is so, but
we do assert that you us a corumun-
ty, are not doing all that you
uld, and should do to develop

W. G 13 itch, in
New Mexico saya, in filtrated
Surr county: "It is w& to
into valley, mesa and iiMeu
laud, - embracing a eonsi
section of th Uio Grande
across the table lands to the sum
mit of the Black Range. It is gen
erally eo well watered as to make
its pasturage lands fully available,
and the stock interest has already
secured a substantial foothold. Ao
a miniDg county, it certainly has
no superior, if it has an equal '. in
the territory." ,
Here we have the facilities of
the county set fairly before us, and
the question conies, are we taxing
our facilities as we should do? The
answer is no, of course not; there
are numberless ways in which the
wealth of tho county could - be in
ci eased and the value of residence
enchanced if we will only do our
plain duty as citizens of a prosper
ous county.
The capitalist is not forced to
to pry out the best paying invest
ments, they are always made pub
lic by the progress of those invest
ing, and then comes the man with
the money to invest, he who will
make the most that caa be made
out of the investment. The settler
who sits quietly and lets this all
slip past him, regrets his own neg
lect of opportunities, and envies
the fortunate capitalist when it
turns out valuable. The citizens
of this county want to invite
capitalists into their business. Go
to work and show thes money
men that there is something in your
county for them to invest in, and
you will have them here, more than
you want. .Volumes may be writ
ten on the subject of development,
but morejean be done by a few ener
getic men than the combined press
of the territory. Go to work in
earnest Sierra County, your pay
will be to your own satisfaction.
The Lone Star has surprised its

an indefinable sentiment of intelli

something like renovation. We
