some of which are belts of timber, make the county one of the best watered in the state. Wild plums, grapes, currants, are also found in abundance along the streams, while all cultivated vines make a remarkable growth here. The climate is as healthful as can be found in the United States, with very short and mild winters and long summers. The atmosphere, being light and dry, is very beneficial to those predisposed to lung troubles. The soil, 90 percent, of which is tillable, is a.

rich sandy black loam and is very productive, being well adapted for all kinds of agriculture. In-1883, the poor crop year all over the Graham County produced 40 bu. of corn per acre, oats 50 wheat 25 In 1889 wheat went from 20 to 35 bu. per acre, corn 40 to GO oats CO bu. potatoes 100 broom corn 503 and all other crops in proportion.

Stock raising is very successful also, as there is plenty of wild grass on which stock can subsist the year round, except when the ground is covered with snow which period does not exceed a month in a winter; thus, the cost of keeping stock is very small. The display ofevery kind of farm product at the Graham County Fair for 1889 would do credit to any county in the country. Our railroads offer ample opportunity of "getting our products to market. There is plenty of good native stone in the county which can be sawed out and then, being left in the air, will harden so that it Is excellent for building purposes. Many of our most elegant buildings are built of this stone.

Hard sandstone also abounds. "Choice "-f arming land' can be bought at from $5 to $12 per acre unless close to town. Thus, with land eo cheap, and good building material so plentiful, an eastern renter can come here and secure a homo of his own for about the same price he would have to pay there for a single year's rent. Besides, farm equities can be bought very reasonable, so that an industrious man with very little ready money can get a start and easily make enough to pay oil the mortgage when it comee due; then, the legislature has wisely exempted $200 to the head of each family from taxation. The social, educational, and religious advantages of the county are excellent considering the fact that the county is so new.

The people here are fully equal to those in the east in intelligence and enterprise and are industrious, happy, and prosperous. There are 79 school districts organized in the county with their school-houses dotting the hilltops and prairies. All the principal re Great scott Why don't you cure that cough?
