Ed. Kegister: As there are a great
many people in Oregon, readers of your
valuable paper, who desire to know some -
thing of the Palone country, and for the
benefit of emigrants who want to come
here, I will, in as short a manner as possi
ble, describe this section of count ry.
What is known as tbe Talonse country is
a much larger body ot land than many
suppose. There is more farming land here
than Is embraced in the great Willamette
valley, and each acre, when in proper culti
vation, will produce from thirty to sixty
buhels of wheat, or from forty to eighty
bushels of oats or barley. Timothy, on the
wet lands, does well, making from one to
three, tons of hay per acre. Potatoes grow
to an enormous size, and will yield as much
per acre as any place on the Pacific coasts
An early rose potato raised in this county
last Snmmer weighed seven pounds and
seven ounces. Turnips, beet's carrots,
cabbage, peas and onions cannot be excelled
for size snd quality on this const. The
wheat is also of superior quality.
I will now give you a description of the
country. The entire country is one vast
rolling plain or prairie, with small valleys
in every direction, both hills and valleys
being nearly the same kind of land, a rich.
black, loose loam from eighteen inches to
three feet deep, with a clay subsoil, with
large and small bunch grass as thick as it
is possible for it to grow and it grows
from eight inches to two and a half feet in
Light. Vild flax is to be found In various
localities. Wild clover and camas is to be
found in tlie wet lands. The. wild clover
looks like the large tame red clover, and is
relished by all kinds of stock. - Flax yields
irom iweive 10- iwenty-nve Dusbeis per
acre. Last season, owing to the late, wet
Spring, and early Fall rains, it was badly
damaged. The hills are as productive as
the valleys, and with the common plows
about .one-half of the entire hills can be
plowed ; with side-hid plows about three
fourths. There are thousands of acres to
1 be taken, just as good as anv Vet taken.
- 1 on!y a little farther from timber from five
to twenty miles. Tho timber is in the
mountains, where the quantity is compara
tively inexhaustiblcand consists of red and
white fir, pine, both white and yellow.
cedar of fine quality and in some localities
in vast quantities, tamarack in abundance.
I and a limited amount of nianle ami nv

Now, a word to emigrant y I know by
experience, and from various emigrants
that have come through the Walla Walla
valley, that in order to retain the emigra
tion this country has been misrepresented
in various ways. I know both sections ot
country, and I will give my word and hon
or that there is no such land to be taken
south of Snake river as there is north of
said river; and I say to emigrants it will
cost you but little to come and see. for
yourselves. This section is as dry, rolling
and healthy a country as can be found on
tlie racific coast, beautiful In Bpring and
Summer, and clear and cold, and generally
dry, in Winter. SIiico March first I have
