GO) Heretofore most people in their busy lives have thought fisl of Arizona and New Mexico only as the great storehouse where dame Nature in coquettish mood hid her treasures in the for midable mountain ranges. It is true that Humboldt said of this region that it was the richest in minerals of any section of the globe; but while its mountains are filled with veins of gold, silver, iron and coal, its valleys are as inviting to the agricult urist as any part of the United States, while its climate is i many respects perfect. To the sportsman it is a most enchant ing region. Many of the mountain valleys are of exceptional beauty; their broad streams are filled with trout; deer graze in their quiet glades and game birds are numerous; on their mountain sides one may chase bear, or be chased by bruin to his heart's content. Society in all of this region is as well organ- . ized as anywhere else. The tourist via the Sunset Route of the Southern Pacific reaches this region more readily than in any other way, and the traveler is attracted by the many conven- .. iences of this model service, sumptuous trains and fast time.
