Chihuahua, a city of Mexico and capital of the state of the same name, is for the most part well built and has an imposing cathedral. It is in a silver mining district and does a considerable trade. The aqueduct that supplies it with water is three miles long. The state is the largest in Mexico, covering an area of over 83,000 square miles, great tracts of which are not arable. It is, however, well adapted for stock-raising, and produces cotton in the south. Its leading productions are gold, silver, and copper.
