Napa County

Population, 16,411; wines and agriculture. There is no kind of fruit that will not do well in Napa count}', and her wines hold an unchallenged position, her success resting upon the production of light table wines, red and white. There are 140 wine-cellars, large and small, most of which afford a market for other grape-growers. Dairying is one of the important industries, and one that is constantly on the increase. Quicksilver mines have been successfully worked, requiring the employment of many men. Assessed valuation, $14,730,168.

Nevada County

Population, 17,369; mining and fruit-growing.

The lumbering interests of the county are very great, and thrive with unwonted vigor.

Plumas County

Population, 4,933; mining and lumbering. Grain and vegetables are grown quite extensively in some sections, and this is an important fruit county, orchards many miles in extent making of the foothills a continuous belt of fruit-bearing trees. Although there are districts where logging is carried on, the timber transported by means of flumes and the sawmills furnishing several millions of feet of lumber every year, there are extensive sections where the trees are not yet perceptibly thinned, and it is evident that Plumas for many years will possess a valuable lumber interest. Assessed valuation, $2,322,090.
