Lane county extends from tho summit
ti the Cascades to the Pacific Ocean. In

Khode Island or Connecticut. It fronts
on the Tacific a distanco of thirty miles,
with a splendid harbor at the city of
Florence. It occupies every altitude
from Abe ocean beach to the glazier
crowned summit of the "Three Sisters"
at the southeastern cornerof theconnty.
Th Coast Range cuts it in two from
north to south. ,

Lane county is fast becoming one of
the great cattle producing counties in
tho State. The mild winters.the fact that
native grasses remain green during the
year, and the ease with which cultivated
grasses can be raised make it an excel
lent country for every kind of stock.
The mineral practice of Lane county
farmers is to provide fodder for only a
small part of the year, during the iai
ance of which tho 6tock roam at larne
Runninir water is abundant, and stock
does not lack water in the driest Boason.
The largest owners of liorned siock are
improving greatly bv infusing fine blood
into their herds. There are numerous
breeders of bhorthorns. Oalloways,
Foiled Angus, Ayrshires, Hereford,
Holsteins, Pevons, Aldemeys aud Jer

large introduction of fino bl-od into the
cattle herds of this section has greatly
increased their value and me prom oi

During the past ten years a number of
our active farmers have been introduc
ing the Angora goat into Lane county,
especially in the foot-bill country,
Theso thrifty farmers had but one object
in view at the time these goats were
purchased, and that was to clear up their
farms at small expense. They bought
the goat for his work and not for bis
wool. During the past five years, bow
ever, theie has been a grat revolution
in the goat industry. Manufacturers
are beginning to discover the manr ad
