Wash! ::::::::: Oct. 19, 1912  - Miss Waterman of the Waterman Ranch is trying to buy a portion of the river bottom lying south of hers which contains a fine mesquite grove. Its value would be for wood but also and principally as browse-pasturage for her cattle. I have been out driving with her on the mesa behind the flocks [?] and it is a fine thing to come down into the mesquite. I remarked: "The mesquite is your forest. It is the forest of the desert." ---------- No. 5170. Atriplex confertifolia. Fruiting heavily now, the little round shrubs 1 to 2 ft. high covered with the fruiting spikes
