FINEST SOIL IN CLACKAMAS COUNTY
We have 24 tracts of land containing from one to six acres each,
beautifully located within one-half mile of the corporate limits of Oregon
City, with excellent view of the surrounding country. The grade of tha
Clackamas Southern Railway Company has been completed through the
original farm and -ar forty-foot roadway paaaes each tract. The man who
depends on his labor for hla livelihood ahould have land enough to raise
his own fruit and vegetables and thereby save a large part of hla earn
These tracte are sold at reasonable rates and on easy paymante.
- This Is not a real estate boom-but an opportunity for a man to
get a home near town, conveniently located and with sufficient space
about hla hnme to raise his own fruit and vegetables
AH of this soil Is rich and productive and free from rock and gravel.

OLYMPIA OYSTERS OUR
REV. J. W. EXON.
The Rev. J. W. Exon, "the great
church-builder" baa given up the
ministry and returned to steamboat
ing. He and the Rev. D. -A. Waters,
formerly presiding elder of tbe Meth
odist church In this district, have pur
chased tbe steamer Modoc from the
O-Wt-A Nilr. Exon haa been
minister for ten yeara and baa built
seven churches. His last charge waa
Wilsonville, where he endeared him
self to bis congregation. He will re
tain his home at Eagle Creek. The
steamer will leave Tuesday on her
Initial trip on the hortland-Lewls Riv
er route, probably flying the colors
cf the Lewis River Navigation Com
pany, which the new owners will in
corporate. The Ilarrlman Interests
valued the Modoc at $10,000. but the
purchase price was much less.. The
Modoc will replace the steamer ' Un
dine, which the Lewis River Trans
portation Company has operated, and
Captain McNeil will leave the Undine
for the Modoc. Captain Exon said
that, tbe buslnesa would be handled
from the Taylor-etreet dock, Portland,
permanently and that fe would run
on the steamer to look after It
Captain George Conway, superin
tendent of the Harriman water lines,
said that tbe Modoc waa built In 1889
and rehulled in 1898. Since 1896,
when tbe route south of Or&gon City
waa abandoned, the vessel waa tied
up and haa been out of commission
most of the time. Her present own
ers obtained the steamer with full
equipment ready for service. As she
la of light draft, they expect that she
will prove more desirable than the
Undine or Moscot, the Mascot having
been on the route for years. The Mas
cot was burned early this season.
