" ' Union County presents to the- home -"seeker a' greater: number of diversified
industries than any county in the state, out side of Multnomah county which is
practically Portland. i . ' : - . "
We do not believe that there is another county in the Inland Empire that can
. show fourteen different industries whose. total annual revenue produces an average of
$193,000.00 cash. . j '"."' ' - " j; ; v .
The annual report of the Slate' labor Commissioner, places Union County third
' in the state, in the employment of labor '" ,
.. It requires 1 94 solid trains of fouftv cars each to carry the produce of our
county to the market, more than a train every other day throughout the yeaiv ;
"An admirable climate." The past winter onlyfpr a few.hours did thCrmercury
reach zero. No excessive heat in the summer and our ccol refreshing nights cannot
be appreciated by the residents of the east until they are. permitted to enjoy them.
Our soil is rich and productive. . Were we to mention yields they, would ' not be
believed. The only way 'to - become acquainted with this "Garden of Eden" is to
personly visit this land of diversity, as when you see .the crops growing and harvested;
they speak for themselves. ;: jfi ;..""f a-VX-.n-i-tJ r'. - 4 ' : : .
