though they produce at present very sp:n ingly;
some of the silver mines, Avhlch were very fruitful,
have lately filled with water, and attempts have
been made in vain to empty them. Indeed the
only mines which have produced any great wealth
are those found in the mountains of Aullagas, and
from them, for some years past, metals of the
rarest qualities have been extracted. In the woods
of the valleys, which produce very fine and excel
lent timber, are found wolves, tigers, and other
wild beasts inhabiting the mountains ; also a
species of bees, which form their combs in the hol
lows of trees, and the honey of which they call
de charas. There is a river in this province com
posed of several streams, and which unites itself
with the Cochabamba. The number of its inha
