San Miguel Is the empire county of Vew Mexloo.
It is on tbe average, one hundred and eighty miles
long by ninety-five miles wide, and (containing about
l.tuo.UUO acres, embraces within Its bouncutrtca rugged
and wooded mountains, extensive plains and fertile
valleys. Its elevation on tbe east la about sUHO
feet and on the west 13,000. Tbe thirty-fifth parallel
of latitude runs centrally through It. It Is bounded
on the north by Mora County, on tho south by Berna
lillo and Chaves Counties and extends from the sum
mit of the main range of mountains on the west to
the Texas ranhandle on the east. It Is well watered
by the Canadian, Feooe, O alllnas, BapoUo and Teoolo
te rivers and their tributaries. Between the Bape-
lo and the O alllnas Is tbe great divide which separates
the waters flowing into the Mlsslsslpl from those
flowing Into the lflo Grande. The western portion of
the county is mountainous, rising from the plains to
the highest range In the Territory, capped with eter
nal snows. Tba culmination of tbe mountains at
such a great altitude, twelve thousand feet, causes a
' great accumulation of snow, which constantly feeds
tbe mountain streams with pure water, that passes
off into and through the valleys lelow. Tbe Mora,
Sapello, Oalllnas, Tecolote and Pecos streams all
have their sources In the same mountains and nearly
tn the same locality. Tbe precipitation of moisture
. on the eastern slopes of the mountains by rain and
snow Is greater than In any other portion of the Ter

the precious metals, coal. Iron, stock ranges, agricul
tural, horticultural and grape lands, splendid scenery,

this continent, low taxes and an active home market
for all agricultural products. ,
