Large interests are also involved in vineyards. Sacramento City is the county seat, and is also the capital of the State of California. The trade of Sacramento aggregates in the jobbing branches about $60,000,000 annually, and extends throughout all the central and northern and mountain sections, and the adjacent States and Territories. Sacramento is the chief fruit-shipping station of the
State, sending forward in season far more fruit than any other point. Assessed valuation, $33,952,808.

San Benito County

Population, 6,412; agriculture. Up to the present time wheat raising has been the chief industry, and in the proper season one may ride for miles between wheat fields where the grain rises above the fences on either side of the road. The acreage devoted to barley is yearly increasing, the average yield being 24 centrals to the acre, and the quality being classed as A 1 by brewers. Among the other industries of the county is the culture of flax and tobacco, of hay, dairying, the raising of fowls and other live stock, and mining. Assessed valuation, $6,279,842.

San Bernardino County

Population, 25,497; chiefly fruit-growing. There are six lines of railroad entering and being built to the line of San Bernardino. The Santa Fe system has established its general offices and its principal machine-shops, round-houses, etc., at this point. The productions of San Bernardino county are chiefly citrus fruits. All the productions of the temperate zone, however, are yielded in prodigal profusion. The mesas give fine crops of wheat and barley, and other small grains yield largely. In many sections Irish potatoes can be had fresh from the ground every month in the year. Garden stuff is perennial. Honey-making is an occupation which brings large returns in different years. Assessed valuation, $26,875,871.

San Diego County

Population, 34,987; fruit-raising and agriculture. There is not a fruit, from the apple and the plum to the banana and the orange, that does not, in some portion of this great section of California, reach a high state of excellence. In oranges and lemons, too, San Diego stands in the front rank. One important industry deserves a special notice. It is the honey business. The annual export is something over 2,000 tons. The largest raisin vineyards in Southern California, or perhaps in the world, are located with-in this county. Assessed valuation, $28,850,516.
