W. II. Kogers, of Sodgewick City,
Kansas, Is among the new arrival in
Oregon in search of homes. He has
TisiteJ several ortions of this state and
has foniul that the chances lor the farm
er of small means are much letter here
than in Kansas.
"There are splendid opportunities in
Oregon," said Mr. Kogera, "for a man
with $500 to $ l.tXW to invest, as he can
buy the makings of a line homo with
that amount. Land is valuable in Kan

purchased for less than f.'HMK) to $iilKH).

Important Century Data.
The Kxaminer Is now publishing from
week to week a series of important dales
and happenings of the Nineteenth Cen
tury, beginning with the year 1K01,
"the legislative union established be
tween (ireat Britain and Ireland," and
ending with the "West Indian hurri
cane" in l'.itXi. This important data
will Is: concluded in our issue of Jan. 3,
HMJl , the end of the twenty-second vol

important to be preserved by all our
readers, and we would suggest that each
subscriber take the issues of this paper
from December ' Vi to, and including
January 'A, paste them together in book
form and put tbem away fur future
reference. As The Kxaminer is no a
cut and pasted in hook form the four
issues containing this century data will
make a neat Isjok.
