Polk county also haa a good class ol

Polk county is the home of di
versified farming. The agriculturist,
horticulturist, hop man, live stock
tnan or poultry fancier can surely be
pleased with the prospects in this
county. If separated from the country
Of which it is a part and .set out In
mid ocean, there is not another coun
ty In the United States whose In
habitants would be so Independent,
ao capable of living off their own re
sources. Especially la this true as
to raw products. With her splendid
facilities in the way of raw, materials
and her fine water powers their util
ity Is a question of only a short time.
In fact, the field Is now a most in
vited one. There are good openings
here for lumber, furniture, door, box,
chair factories and all kinds of pro
ducts of lumber. There la opening

Ice factory, cracker factory, and wool-

Angora Goat Induatry
Polk county prides herself oa her
flocka of thoroughbred goata. The
mohair of Polk county averagea np
with the beet Turkish product, as
will be aoen from the following in-stance:
A baa of mohair, taken from the
flocka of J. B. Stump, of near Inde
pendence, was sent to the Massa
chusetts Mohair Plush Company. One
of the fleoces, tied up separately, was
from a registered kid. sired by a rec
ognised pure-bred buck; the others
were the fleecea of klda which aaa
been rejected as candidates for regis
try. Theaa kids were sired br a
buck raised br Mr. Stump, which
buck also failed to pass the exami
nation for reglstrr. No information
waa given to manufacturers aa to who
raised thla mohair, and tner were
requested to examine It and give
their opinion upon its merita and de
merits. In due course of time a check
waa received to pay for the mohair
at the rate of 45 centa per pound
at the mill, and the following let
ter accompanied It:
We have received from you
a. samnle lot of mohair. One fleece
eample is extra long, well-bred, white
stock, and would rlass as purebred
equal to the best Turkish mohair,
which is an exceptional thing to say
of American mohair. The fleece Is a
little heavy In grease, so that In
scouring it will shrink a little more
than the average Turkish mohair. As
to flnenesa of quality, It Is medium
"Regarding the balance of the lot
of Bamples, the condition is extra
good; average length, 8even inches.
It haa all the characteristics of the
purest Turkish mohair. It is soft,
white, lustrous stock, strong in the
staple and elastic, and Is free from
oil. It Is finer in fiber than average
Turkish mohair.
"We are not comparing this with
any other domestic hair; only with
the best bred Turkish hair, and it Is
only by very careful selection out of
a good many bales of the best Turk
ish that we would pick out a num
ber of fleeces that would be as good
as this sample lot of fleeces. If the
climate and feed of Oregon will per
mit the goats from which this mo
hair was taken to retain the qualities
which have been bred in them, the
result will aurpasa apythlng we have
seen in the way of American bred
"We believe that we have already
received, or have on the way to us

ican mohair that has been sheared
this spring, and it has been very aat
