Camas Valley Matters
Camas Valley is located in the Coast
Range of mountains, in the southwest
ern part of Douglas County, Oregon.
This valley is about seven miles long,
and from two to three miles wide, in
the widest place. It is surrounded by
mountains, from five hundred to one
thousand feet above the level of the val
ley. The ranges lying to the west are
steep, while those to the east have a
much more gentle slope. The lower
valley ia level bottom land with two
streams winding their way through it
one in the western edge, while the other
Hows through j!..- center. These
streams are the head waters of the mid
dle fork of the Coquille river. The soil
is most all very good, that along the
streams being the richest' The soil on
the west side of the valley ia not so well
adapted to fruit growing us on the coast.
The chief timber of this county is llr,
pine, cedar and live oak, which is very
valuable for furniture. The products
are grain of all kinds, fruit, vegetables,
lundwr and dairy products. The na
turul advantages of this place are groat
for sawmill, box factories and sash and
door factories. There is also a line loca
tion for a flour inilll. There waa one
here in former years, hut it was burned.

vited to attend.
Dairying WOOld he a profitable business
as there is plenty of pasture in the sur
rounding country for enough cows to
supiH.rt a large creamery. We have
two achool houses in the valley, one in
the upper district, where there are alsnit
twenty cbildien of achool age. Tbe
other ia a large two-roomed house in
the center of the lower district. There
are ah. nit ninety children in this dis
trict. We have a church, owned hy the
Methodists. Then) is a store and a
hotel on the Itosehurg and Myrtle Point
stage line. We have a daily mail from
both Kojebiirg and Mvrtle Point. There
ia a telephone line c niiiei liiig Itosehurg
and Myrtle Point, via this valley, which
make- ijiiick connection with the nut
side world. There are about three
hundred and filly people here and most
all of them are good and industrious.
Hy a Pupil.
New members are being received at
the llaptint church right ulouut. Last
evening one new member mum milled lo
the growing list. Such occurrunces
would rejoice the heart of any pastor,
and of course, Rev. Hicks in human.
"The Chronicle," is the name of a
new paper which bus just been started
ut l.aidluw, Crook county. It stiirts out
with good prospects and ought to be
given loyal support. -
Now that the rains have come come,
those had colds will soon disappear, and
the doctors will be able to take a rest,
for Itosehurg is one of the healthiest of
places if the rains only come.
Notice is hereby given to the public
that the business houses of Ashluud will
