New Mexico, Pacific States Newspapers Directory, 1894


Population 153,593. Agriculture has made rapid strides in this Territory during the past three years; hundreds of miles of irrigating canals having been constructed, bringing under cultivation immense tracts of land. Ample quantities of timber abound in the mountain ranges. The principal varieties are pine, cedar and pinion, the latter being especially valuable for fuel. Fruit-growing in New Mexico has proven an exceedingly profitable occupation, orchards of all varieties being thrifty, free from insects, symmetrical in form, and bearing fruit of a superb flavor. The range of fruits which have been found to thrive in the soil and climate of New Mexico include all those varieties grown in Iowa, Illinois and Ohio, and also many semi-tropical fruits and nuts, including the prune, grape, apricot, peach, fig, almond and peanut. Bernalillo county is rich in agricultural and grazing lands, in quarries of marble and building stone, and deposits of mineral and coal.
