Is Polk Awake?
A gentleman from Benton coun
ty is sojourning in Chicago, whore
he continually comes in contact
with people who are eagerly peek
ins lor all available information
To friends in Benton county this
gentleman writes that an influx of
Easterners to Oregon next spring is
absolutely certain, and that the
number that will cotne will amaze
one. He urges that canned and
unserved fruits. boxes of tfne
a - i
apples and other specimen pro
ducts be sent to the Ilarriman Im
migration Office, when honieseek-
ers by the hundreds are on the
lookout for just fuch pointers
about our grand old state.
He also urges that descriptive
literature be sent, settinz forth
facts about Oregon's climate, soil,
products, etc., this reading matter
to be distributed gratuitously from
the immigration office. Literature

products lire carried toChieago free

Benton county is up and doing:
funds are being collected for the
purpose of getting out- suitable
literature for advertising the coun
ty; the wide-awake Citizen' League
is seeking to secure fruits for ship
ment, and other steps are being
taken. Benton county farms are
in demand and command fancy
prices; her towns are building up
and factories are being located
within her boundaries; city realty
is scarce at twice what it was sell
ing for three years ago; scarcely a
week passes but what brings from
one to fifteen homes-eekera to Ben
ton, and they nearly all locate.
