Excerpt from Treasure Land, Vol. 1: A Story

Where the ruddy Colorado rushes onward to the sea;
Where the Gila's seething waters sweep along right merrily:
Where the canyon's mighty fissure, and the rolling valleys lie;
Where the kisses of the zephyrs make the swaying forests sigh -
There lies this Treasure Land beneath a sunny southern sky!
And on her fruitful bosom, with tender passions rife,
Lie treasures for the seeking, and the elixir of life.

Some time in the near future an effort will be made to annex the United States to Arizona, and in view of this political amalgamation, some general information respecting it will prove interesting.

If the reader will refer to the most accessible geography, he will find the following description, or words to the same effect: "Arizona is bounded on the east, north and west by the United States of America, on the south by the Republic of Mexico, above by the serenest of skies and beneath by inexhaustible deposits of mineral, and a soil more fertile than the valley of the Nile."

We may not follow the book precisely, as we quote from memory, but being on the spot, with the facts before us, we are probably nearer the truth than the book is.

"The surface consists of elevated table-lands broken by lofty mountains and interspersed by valleys, many of which are intersected by irrigating canals, dotted with thriving towns, and bright with the green and gold of orchard, field and vineyard. Some of these valleys are more than 200 miles long and from twenty to forty miles wide, and more fertile than the far-famed valleys watered by the river Nile. One who is not familiar with the character of the rich soil has no conception of the future value of these immense valleys. In a few years the territory will be one vast garden, excepting those portions reserved for grazing purposes."

We now ask the reader to refer to the Governors Report for 1896, and if a copy is not obtainable, to rely upon the faithfulness of our extracts from it.

Arizona has been called "the sun-kissed' land and the title is well deserved."
