LANE COUNTY, OREGON
And a Salubrious Climate combine to Make
the Garden of the West.
Lane county extends from the summit
of the Cascades to the Pacific Ocean. In
M.e it is about five times as large as
Khode Island or Connecticut. It fronts
on the Pacific a distance of thirty miles,
with a splendid harbor at the city of
Florence. It occupies every altitude
from 4be ocean beach to tho glazier
crowned summit of the "Three Sisters"
at the southeastern corner of the county.
Tho Coast Range cuts it in two from
north to souih.
Lane county is half prairie land, with
wrv rich soiL producing abundant crops
:' grain, hav, fruit nnd vegetables, and
half hill and upland. The table-lands
bordering the valleys are partly covered
with timber or brush, most of it being
open enough for tine pasturage. These
binds are fertile and yield abundant
.-rops when cultivated. Every crop that
-rows in the Willamette Valley glows
in Lane county. All the farms are sup
plied from natural sources with tho best
f water. The immense timber wealth,
aggregating nearly 2t).00O,(XH).00O feet, is
just beginning to receive attention. No
r. .unty in the United States has us large
m amount cf timber as Lane. The fa
mous Bohemia mining district, destined
to become the Cripple Creek of Oregon,
li3 partly in Lane county.
The population of Lane county is
c.bout 2:i,000, all white. The county is
rapidlv adding to its population desir
able immigrants from the Eastern
States. Euireue, 11 miles south of Junc
tion City, w ith a population of 5,000, is
!hf countv seat.
The following is a summary of the
productions of Lane county for VJuO:
Excepting the tropical and citrus va
rieties, all fruits thrive in Lane county
ever, the tender olive and fig. Al
monds, peanuts and walnuts have
-..s?ed beyond the experimental tage.
Fruit has been grown in Oregon for 40
years, but only r f laio years in a scien-j
rii rmr.ner. Tic-' Statu now supplies j

Lane county is fast becoming one of
tho great cattle producing counties in
the State. Tho mild winters.the fact that
native grasses remain green during the
year, and theease with which cultivated
grasses can bo raised make it an excel
lent country for every kind of stock.
The general practice of Lane county
farmer is to provide fodder for only a
small part of the year, during the bal
ance of which the stock roam at Lrnw.
Running water is abundant, and stock
does not lack water in the dried season.
The largest owners of homed stock are
improving greatly bv infusing fine blood
into their herds. There are numerous
breeders of .Shorthorns, Galloways,
Polled Ansns, Ayrshires, Hereford,
Holsteins, lVvons, Aldernevs and Jer
seys in tho Willamette Valley. The
large introduction of tine bl"od into the
cattle herds of this taction has .greatly
increased their value and the profit of
Til K AXOOHA COAT.
During the past ten years a number of
our active farmers have Ucn introduc
ing the Angora goat in'.o Lano county,
especially in tho foot-hill country.
These thrifty farmers had but one object
in view at the time these goats were
purchased, and that was to i lear up their
farms at small expense. They bought
the goat for his work and not for his
wool. During the past five years, how
ever, theie has In-en a great revolution
in the goat industry. Manufacturers
are beginning to discover the man ad
vantages and special qualities of mohair.
Numerous desirable and elegant fabrics
are now being made from this wool, and
it has lxen found that the no! are ex-
ceedinelv line and durable. Another
sf eebd featuie of this goods is, th.it it is
much more free from the attacks of
li.'.ths than goods made from sheep's
1. Eur this reason, it i- sai l thr.t
tic; major portion of the valuable up
holsterv now used in railway cars, is
made of ;.".;tt'r: wool.

As a dairying section Lane county
possesses many advantages. Grasses of
all kinds, both native and cultivated,
grow In luxuriance. Cattle have to de
pend but little upon hay, since tho
warm rains, from early in tho fall to late
in the spring, keep the grass growing.
Even iu tho dry summer season grass
remains fresh and green in the mead
ows along river und creek bottoms and
in the mountain valleys. Timothy is
the leading grass, but write and red
clover mako remarkable growths, espe
cially the former, which springs up
spontaneously on the hills wherever the
destruction of tre-s and underbrush
gives it an opportunity. The natural
grasses, the cool cummer brooics blow

which are tho Helena, Annie, Mtisick,'
