LANE COUNTY;! OREGON
And a Salubrious Climate combine to Hake It
the Garden of the West.
Lane county extendi fromhe summit
of the Cascades to the Pacific Ocean. In
size it is about five times as large as
Rhode 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 tbe ocean beach to the glaxier
crowned summit of the "Three Sisters"
At the southeastern corner cf the county.
The. Coast Kange cuts it in two from
north to south.
Tjin. county is half prairie land, with
' very rich soil! producing abundant crops
of grain, hav, fruit and 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
lands are fertile and yield abundant
crops w hen cultivated. Every crop that
grows in the Willamette Valley glows
In Lane county. All the farms are sup
plied from natural sources with the best
.if water. The immense timber wealth,
aggregating nearly 29.000,000,000 feet, is
lust beginning to receive auenuon.
... .1... T':.l Ct.Ao 1..,.. urn '
countv in the United States has hs large
n Amount of timber as Lane. The fa
mous Bohemia mining district, destined
to become the Cripple Creek of Oregon,
lies partly in Lane county.
The population of Lane county is
about 22,000, all white. The county is
rapidly adding to its population desir
able immigrants from the Eastern
State. Eug?ne, 14 Utiles south of Junc
tion City, with a population of 5,000, is
the couutv seat.
The following is a summary of the
productions of Lane county for 1900:

Lane county is fast becoming one of
the groat cattle producing counties in
the State. The mild wiutera.the fnct that
native grasses remain green duriug the
year, and the ease with which cultivated
grasses can bo raised make it an excel
lent country for every kind of slock.
The general practice of I.ane county
farmer is to provide fodder for only a
small part of the year, during the bal
ance of which the stock roam at hum
Running water is abundant, and stock
does not lack water in the driest season.
The largest owners of horned stock are
improving greatly bv infusing fine blood
into their herds. There are numerous
breeders of Shorthorns, Galloways,
Polled Angus, Ayrshire, Hereford,
llolsteins, Devout, Alderueya and Jer
seys in the Willamette alley. The
large introduction of tine bl-nxl into the
cattle herds of this section lias greatly
increased their value and the profit of
THR ASCIOKA GOAT.
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-hill country.
These 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 his
wool. During the past five years, how
ever, there has been a great revolution
in the coat indutry. Manufacturers
aro beginning to discover the many ad
vantage and special qualities of mohair.
Numerous desirable and elegant fabrics
are now being made from this wool, and
it has beeu found that the goods are ex
tecdmalv fiuo and durable. Anothei
special feature of this g.ts is, that it is
mti'-ii mi re free from the attacks of
moths than goods made from sheep's
wool. For this reason, it is said thct
the major portion of tho valuable up-
hoUierv i.ow usta m railway cars, is
made of goat's wool.
The entire number of Angara goats i
Lane county today will probably no"
exceed C'.UOO head. V.'f ien Wft come to
consider the vast area of good brush
country in this county, so well adapted
to goat grazing, we can readily cc that,
instead of the hi.tall number now kept,
we could keep to advantage hundreds
of thousands of goaU in J.ane county
atone and keep them well. We arj
speaking now more particularly as to
tne value of their wool and increase
and of the profits that art bound to oc
cur bv coLtinuous aud thrifty care of
the domestic goat. As to their adapt
ability to our climate there is no ques
tion, and an to the numerous advantages
flrUing from raising nortn. tlii" has been
thoroughly and satisfactorily settled
