S.tm friend of Csnby.has sent us
the following boost for that thriving
uttu rltv. As it Is well written, and
contains much thitt Is true, w give It
space In the Enterprise:
To pas through t anny is i
mlr It. Located as It I wnere nmu .
has so wonderotiHly maae an conui-
tlon Ideal for a town. I'auDy ihws.s
of aa wonderful a towuslte.as can le
found anywhere In the State of Ore
jon. In fact there are few more beau
tiful site to be found anywhere, sur
rounded as It Is by many of tne imesi
farms In Clackamn county. A vast,
fertile farming community Is tributary
talt, being roosted In the heart of the
Willamette Valley tnan wnere n ..
ter soli can be found anywhere In the
I'nton for general purposes. Including
fanning, fruit growing, truck, farming,
poultry raising and bo culture. The
vast valley of the Molalla Hlver. a
branch of the Willamette, to Its South
la all tributary to Canby and Its many
acrea of fertile soil, some -of which Is
in hih state of cultivation while
other parts are practically undevel
oped, offers a rare opportunity to
homtiseekers, who are In quest of a
location where no risks are to be taken
and where dimes will grow aouars
quicker than any place you can plant
them. . .
Any one who will frequent tne ue
pot when the trains to nmii
being loaded with the produce being
shipped to this city by express will
be convinced that to locate near Can
by means to be able to raise abund
ance for one' own use and to be able
to dispose of the surplus at a good
profit. The railroad employe on the
main line of the Southern pacific
which runs through the town claim
that no other town Its slie along the
road ships out as much veal, pork,
poultry, eggs, vegetables, berries and
potatoes as doe Canby.
From the quality of the strawberries
and loa-an berrlea raised at Canby no
one could claim for them a nome out
side of Csnby; for better berries never
grew than these raised st Canby. The
Kellogg people of Three Rivers, Mich,
the famous growers of the thorough
bred plants, recognized that in no
Dlace to their knowledge wss the soil
and climatic conditions as favorable
for raising the strawberry plant as on
the Canby prairie, and therefore they
have a well established nursery ner.
Canbya being close to Portland Is a
rreat advantage. Canby Is only twen
ty-four miles from the metropolis, of
the Northwest, with botu raiiroaa ana
river trausoortatlon. This makea It
au easy matter to market without de
lay and cheaply all produce ana
Is renerallr-mnceded thst Portlsnd
prlrt ajr gofxt". One gardner - ha
marketed over $500 worth of rhubarb
off of a single acre. Those who nav
marketed asparagus 'report even '
larger income from an ne of this veg
The raising and drylti br Wune- !
also a source of wealth, which mus
not be overlooked. Larg driers are
mn st full titast durlne the drying sea
son." The Italian prum? falsed her
sre second to none prtMhced and a
ready market la alway to be lonna.
Canby I also an Important shipping
nnint of cord wood, piling and mining
timbers. There Is still abundance of
timber close ln. which makes it possi
ble to secure the best building mater
ials at the lowest cost Much surracea
lumber, cord wood, mining timber and
ntlins- are shipped by the carload to
B-trn nntnts. These who are seek.
Ing land which can be Irrlgsted will
find that such land may be had along
the Molalla River.
While the population is only snout
seven hundred, yet It Is constantly
growing. During the past year more
than twentv new buildings hsve been
erected, and probably about ikhj.imiv
have been expended for buiming pur-
nnaes Our contractors tell us that
from Indlcationa the number of build
inn to he constructed this season will
exceed that of last year. City people
are seeking nulet homes in our beautl
ful Ktle town," where there are no ss-
loons and where peace reigns supreme,
The fact that the people of Canby
abolished the saloon has led the best
class of people to seek homes here;
therefore Canby Is & town of homes.
Csnby Is slso a Tusy little buslnens
town. We have three large depart
ment stores, two large hardware es
tablishments, three commission hous
es, a creamery, a cannery, a Jewelry
store, a bakery, s printing office which
vets out a weekly paper, three real
estate offices all of which are doing a
thriving business, several conret-tion-ery
stores, a large furniture store, an
undertaking establishment and a bank
with over $200,000 on deposit, two
blacksmith shop, a pool hall and an
up-to-date livery stable with an auto
mobile garage. These hiislnes places
certainly prove Canby a live town.
Besides we have the town lighted with
electricity and have a fine mutual
t.lsnhona svstem. which Is maintained
at a cost of leg than $2.50 a member
No aloons but many churches prove
that morality I at a high ebb. There
ar four churche consisting of the
Methodist, the Christisn, tne Norweg
ian Evangelical and the German Evan
gelical. We also have gooa scnoois
whereby the child may remain at home
and complete a thorough high sehool
Oood roads the yesr around
are not wanting about Canby; for fine
gravel roads than which none better
may be found ln the 8tate are to be
fnnnil leadlns- Into Canby.
The County fair Ground being lo
r.at4 here Is a great attraction es
pecially to the race horse people; tor
Canby' track I th only fine Winter
track in th Northwest and conse
quently large number of horse train-
era come f 0 Canby fof winter qnaner.
Whr look longer for a home, when
b coming to Canby' yon can better
your condition',' enjoy life, raise your
family aurronnded with the best of In-
flnencv and prolong your day tq hp-
plnes, peace and plenty.
