Yesterday, three families named respect
ively llurgesi, Morgan ami NWr, arri-ed
direct fro, ii one of tho Weatnru states, for
the purpose of rinding perm tueut homus in
thi state. Before leaving for the snii-dowu
state, tiHse persons had not dertuiuly de
termined, just where f spn-ad their pavil
inn. It appear tlie.id fa inlies bad made
up their minds a xhort time ago t com to
initio part of the Pauilio coast, n I wore
casting about as to where the should settle.
Just about that timn they attended nue ot
the fairs, and as good luck would have it,
they happened to see the. "missionary car'
which has made so many proselytes. After
viewing with admiration the many magnif
icent productions of this state, they unani
mously voted to come to Oregon. One of
the men remarked. "When we saw just
what you people could raise out here, that
settled the question with us, I tell you."
Well, to Wol foot they came, and before
landing here determined to seetle in Lane
cuinty. In ten minutes nfter . reaching the
Ash street wharf, they visited the rooms of
the state board of immigration, and, in a
very short time, were furnished tickets at
reduced rate for Irviny station, Lane
county. Tiii morning they ail left on the
south-bound train for.tho point named.
These men are practical farmers and of
