Ticino

Ticino, the most southerly canton of Switzerland, lies on the Italian frontier; slopes down from the Lepontine Alps in the N. to fertile cultivated plains in the S., which grow olives, vines, figs, &c.; the inhabitants speak Italian, and the canton, from the mildness of its climate and richness of its soil, has been called the “Italian Switzerland,” embraces most of Lakes Lugano and Maggiore, and is traversed by the St. Gothard Railway.

Population (circa 1900) given as 127,000.
