At a doleful-looking ranch, PANYAN SPRINGS, where we paused to let our horses drink, a group of teamsters had kindled a fire, and stood warming themselves over it. Among them was our servant, his natural ebony turned clay-color by the icy wind that came rushing down from Mount Nebo's 12,000 feet of alti- tude. One of my boys who is of a poetic turn, pointed it out to John, meaning to say, "Grand! " "Yes, indeed," shivered John, "Dreadful!

At another watering-place, SANTAQUIN, I think, somewhat above the general level of the plain, we saw quite a number of white-topped wagons slowly toiling along the dusty track below us.

The peak of Pioche's prosperity came in 1872, when ore production totaled $5,462,000. The town had a maximum population of some 7,500 but began to decline by 1875. Most of the ore was freighted to Utah and most of the supplies came from Utah communities. See Reproduction of Thompson and West's History of Nevada. 1881.
