Madera, Fresno County, California.

Fresno County comprises 8000 square miles in the best part of the State—the South Central Division. The county limits reach from the Summit of the Sierra Nevada down to and across the San Joaquin Valley and up to the crest of the Coast Range.

The county is divided into two nearly equal parts by the San Joaquin River. Of the Northern, and naturally the richest half, Madera is the chief town. It is almost at the center of that half of the county, out of which a new county will soon be formed, when Madera will be the county seat.

The town is the site of a great lumber industry, the lumber being cut in the mountains and floated down to Madera by means of a V-flume, 65 miles long. This is also an important shipping point for cattle and sheep, hides and wool, wheat and barley, wines, fruit and other merchandise Surrounding the town is the richest kind of land, which produces abundantly almost every grain, fruit and garden vegetable known to the United States. A considerable tract of land is already under irrigation, and a scheme is now forming for irrigating a still more extensive body of the finest farming land in California

Land here is as yet cheap, so that the country offers strong attractions for the capitalist with an eye to speculation, or for the man of small means who desires to make a home.

The main line of the Southern Pacific Railway passes through Madera, which is 185 miles from San Francisco.

The healthfulness of Madera and its neighborhood is noted by all observers.

There are good Schools, Churches and other adjuncts of civilized society.
