The following excellent article' upon
the resources of our tvalley we take
fromjthe "Willamette Farmer" of last
We met at the late' Pioneer Cele
bration Col. John E. Ross, who is one
of 'the pioneers of Jackson county as
well as among those who came to Ore
gonTat an early day. Col. Ross is a
Rogue river farmer whose place is only
three miles from Jacksonville. He is
well informed, of course, concerning
that region and says it offers great in
ducements to new settlers. Rogue
river valley, including,the territory
from Urapqua mountain on the north
to thejSiskiyou mountain on the south
is forty miles wide, north and south,
by sixty to seventy miles long, east
and west. Of this the land and open
country of the valley that is already
settled is about equal to one-fourth of
the total. The remainder is a hilly
region, covered with undergrowth in
part, but when cleared makes the best
of vineyard and orchard land. If we
only claim one half of the whole valley
to be availableufor agriculture, that
will leave, as much vacant land, subject
to entry, or purchase from (he rail
road company, asis now cultivated ot
owned in Jackson and Josephine
counties. There is diversity of soil in
Jackson county. Part is clayey soil,
well adapted to vine growing or
orcharding. There is considerable
granite decomposition that has been
tried for orchards with success.- We
met the other day with a gentleman
who formerly lived in that region, who
told his experience in plating an
orchard on decomposed bench land.
Of the wholo area described as with
in the limits, forty by sixty miles the
open prairie 'lands of the valley, that
constitute the farming region of Jack
son county, form not over one-fourth,
the remainder is generally vacant.
Within a few months the 0. it C. rail
road will reach that, section "fftUe
it all the necessary facilities of trans
portation. The natural outlet of
Southern Oregon is townrds the north,
where its products will find a market.
The soil and climate of Rosue river
valley favor the products that are
natural lo California on the south of
it. While ic produces well all the
cereals, fruits and vegetable? that
grow to the northward, it also grows
corn, grapes and peaches that do not
succeed with certainty in the valleys
north of it. The climate of Southern
Oregon is pleasantly modified so that
it has not the hot summers, nor the
fear of drouth that are so common to
California. lis winters have not the
excess of rain sometimes known in our
own spction. We have often asserted
that Jackson county possesses advan
tages of climate over nny other part of
Oregon. Its southern location, mid
way between Oregon and California,
secure for it tho best features of each
Oregon needs corn, and settlers in
Rogue river valley can raise that cereal
to advantage with certainty of a
market close at hand. Market garden
ing will pay well there because a market
for early vegetables will be secured at
Portland and other northern towns.
We already receive early fruits and
vegetables from Douglas county, in the
Umpqua region, one hunrcd miles
north of Rogue river valley.
The soil of the Rogue river country
is quick and responsive, similar to that
of California, and can be depended on
for early production. We have
spoken of the different soils. We look
to ths future with certainty that there
will be great population in cities, and
that Rogue river farmers will be called
on to supply the demand for these
northern cities for the products it can
raise, which the rest of Oregon cannot
grow with certainty. Rogue river
vineyards make excellent wine and
grow very fine grapes. It will be
natural for the future cities of Oregon
to seek their supplies from an Oregon
source in prefeience to going to Cali
fornia. As to peaches, alio, we shall
require extensive shipments.
But fruitgrowing there can include
all varieties known in the Willamette.
The fruit-grower can work with a
certainty that he can compete in all
respects with the fruit grower of nny
other section. He can dry or can his
product or ship it green and be able to
do each to advantage.
We do .not mean to intimate that
fruit growing is the only re&ource in
Rogue river valley. The people of
that county carry on farming exV
tensively and are stock raisers on a
generous scale'. We are referring to
the new lands, overgrown1 with brush
that abound in that portion of Oregon1.
Our effort is to show their especial
value, where proper locations are se
cured, for fruit growing. We haye
also shown the especial adaptability of
Jackson county for that occfupation.-
A few seres, well tilled, will afford oc
cupation to a family. The man of
small means can manage to clear a few'
acres and cultivate his young orchard
in garden until it bears fruit. There"
are many inducements for settling in
that region and there is every reason
to believe that in time it will become
the garden spot and fruit growing
portion of Western Oregon.

TIE QUITS SODA JERKIXO AS A BUSINESS
AND GOES ON TUB STAGE.
"Well, I have quit jerking soda."
"No, you don't tell me," said the
grocery man, as he moved the box of
raisins out of reach. You never
will amount to anything unless you
stick to one trade or profession. A
rolling hen nover catches the early
"0, but I am all right now. In the)
soda business there is no chanCa for"
genius to rise, unless the soda fountain
explodes. It is all wind, and one gets
tired of the constant fiz. He feels
that he is a fraud, and when ho puts a
little syrup in a tumbler and fires a
little sweeteted wind and water' iri it
until thesopsuds fills the tunibler, and
charges ten cents for that which only
cost a cent, a sensitive soda jerker,
who has reformed, feels that it is worsd
than three card monte. I couldn't
stand the wear on my conscience, so I
have got a permanent job as super, and
shall open on the 1st of September.
Pa and ma think I am going into tha
business fresh and green, but I know
all aboutt't. When I played tore with.
McCu'Iough onco "
"0, what you giving tfil" said tho
groceryman in digust. When yod
played with AlcCulIoughl "What did
"What did I do? Why, you old seed
cucumber, the whole play entered
around me. Do you remenlber the"
scene in the Roman forum where Mc
Cullough addresses tho populace of
Rome! I was the populace. Don't
you remember a saiall fellow standing
in front of the Roman orator taking it
in, with a nightshirt on, with bare
legs and arms That was me, and
and everything depended on me. Sup
pose I had gone off the stage at that
critical moment, or laughed when I
should have looked fierce at the in
spired words of the Roman Senator, it
would have been a dead give way on
McCullough. As the populace of
Rome I consider myself a glittering
success, and Mac took me by the hand
when they carried Cajsar's dead body
out, and he said 'us three did ourselves
proud.' Such praise from McCullough
i3 seldom accorded to a supe. But t
don't consider tho populace of tha im
perial city of Rome my masterpiece.
Where I excel is in coming out briforo
thecurtain between the acts, and un
hooking the carpet. Some supes go
out and turn their backs to the audience
showing patches on their pants, and
rip up the carpet with no style about!
them, and the dust flies, and the bov
yell 'supp,' and tho supo gets nervous
and forgets his cue, and goes off tum
bling over the carpet, and the orchestra
leader is afraid the supe will fall on
him. But I go out with a quiet dignity
that is only gained by experience,, nnd
I take hold of the carpet the way Ham
let takes up the skull of Yorick, and
the audience is paralyzed. I knel
down on the carpet to unhook it in a
devotional sort of way that makes the
audience bow their heads as though
they were in church, and before tJe
realize I am only a supe I have the
carpet unhooked and march out of the
way as a 'Piscopal minister does when
he goes out between the acts at church
to change his shirt They never 'guy'
me 'cause I act well my part. But I
kick on holding dogs for actresses.
Some supes think they are made if they
can hold a dog, but I have an ambition
that a pug dog will not fill. I held
Mary Anderson's cud of gum onco
while she went on the stage, and when
she came off and took her gum her
fingers touched mine and I had to run
my fingers in my hair to warm thura,
lie a fellow does "when he has been
snowballing. Gosh, but she would
freeze ice cream without salt. I shall
be glad when the thpatrical season
open; 'cause we actors get tired layintf
