Lake county is in the centet of the
great lake country of Central Oregon
where are located some ot the moat
remarkable bodies of water in tbe
state. This county lies in tbe central
southern portion of tbe state, about
miaway betweeu tbe eastern and west
ern boundaries. On the north it is
bounded by Crook county, on tbe
east by Harney county, on tbe south
by the states of California and Xev
a la, and on tbe west by Klamath
county. Aa to area it' stands the
fourth largest in tbe state, having
something orei 8,000 square miles,
and its annual ptecipitatioo stands
third iu 2astern and Ceutral Oregon
ouly Wasco and Hood River counties
leading It by a small margin. Some
Idea of tbe vast territory embraced
itbin the borders of Lake couuty
can be more easi-y understood when
we cox pare its area to some of tbe
states in tbe onion. It is larger than j
Deleware, larger than New Jersey,
larger than Connecticut, and about
equal to in size to Massachusetts. Yet
this vast area our populatinun is only
Tbe county contains 5,0j:),.10O acres
divided as follows: 1.9S0.04S acres of
by tbe moutaius which bear the name
of the valley, and is a veritable gem.
This valley contains the choicest lauds
i n Lake couuty, aud in time will be
to all Central Oregon what Hood
River is to the country tributary to
it. Summer Lake Is an ideal fruit
belt, tbe equal of which la haul to
find anywhere and nowhere in Oregon
can it te excelled. In this fertile
little valley there are 20,0uu acres that
re adapted to frnit culture. Here
is a vast body of land that by uature
was intended as a fro it belt as is
shown by tbe wild plums growing on
every band where tbe ground has as
yet not been cultivated and whose
quality and flavor can ouly be known
and appreciatad by partaking of tbe
luscious fruit. So prolific are the
plums, that in niauy places as the
traveler goes along me road be can
sit ia his wagou and pluck the fruit
at ripening time. Here in this val
ley, apples, pears, dIuius, prunes,
peaches, apricots and all other like
fruits, as well as all kinds of berries
grow in profusion an i Bbundance,
aud not ouly tbe quanity but tbe
quality cannot be excelled auy where.
Tomatoes melons, aud all other vine
as cvell as all kinds ot root crops to
gether with oats, wheat and barley, i
almouds, walnuts and filberts all J
Uourisb aud yie;d abundantly.

yielding capacity of this soil,

These two sections are almost
i lentically the same, .ud Iu fact,
there la uu difference between them
ouly au imagiuary line, and just
where that imaginary line is located
would take some oue more fortunate
than we have been or ever saw, to
tell where that dividing Hue was, aud
for the purpose of this article will
treat tbe dtferot neighborhoods as a
whole. This entire section is covered
with a luxuriaut growth of sagebrush
which up to a few years ago was con
sidered only tit tor ranging stock,
owing principally toQ the lack of
water for domestic purposes, it being
generally supposed to be impossible
to get water by digging, liut some
one two or three yeurs ago diepe-led
that supposition by having be hardi

of Lske county as a wbole,
proceed with the portiou set out iu
the first part of this article to more
particularize aud which embraces
more than half the territory ae well
as more than half tbe taxable proper
ty in the county, but probably not
half the populatiou.
Tbe town of Paisley is located in
the beautiful Chewaucau valley, tne
Chewaucan river, a stream that has
't s headwaters far up in tbe mount
aiDB, flowing swiitly along tbe north
side of the town. Tbe river furnishes
an immeuse amount of water, and in
fact is tbe principal river in tbe
county, and which uudoubtedy in tbe
near future will be harnessed and
the wheels of mills and factoiies made
to bum, turning out tbeir various
products,. Its waters abound with
tbe sportive trout and is au anlger's
paradise. The Chewaucan valley
wbicb lies Lrincipally to tbe east and
south ot tbe town of Paisley, is com
posed uf some of tbe finest and most
productive land to be found any
where, and will produce bay, grain,
alfalfa, fruit, berriea, and vegetables
tbe very best kinds. While we say
that tbey raise fruit in tbe Chewau
can valley, yet do Dot understud us
to sav that it is a perfect fruit sec
tion, for it is not, for while fruit is
raised there that is of the very finest
and tiest, yet there are years when
there are total failures as !08 proved.
Yet us a wbole, iu comparison with
all of central Oregon it is far abeal
In the fruit line. Wheat aud barley
aie raised to some extent, yet bm a
sectiou it is devoted to the stock iu
duetry. iiarley has beeu raised that
yielded over 70 bubbles to tbe acre
and oats a similar amount. These
y elds hre not however the average
yields, but tbe larger ones. Tbe
average yield of barley is from 30 to
40 bushels and wheat from 27 to '10
bushels tbe quality of each being tbe
beet. Potatoes cabbage peas, turnips,
canots, parsnips, aud such vegetables
Hour sb aud grow to good size and
yield abundantly, lieaus, pumpkins
and tomatoes do fairly well, yet tbey
are not as successfully grown as those
The Chewaucan valley is oue of the
very best of water. Summer Lake is
indeed a favored spot, aud iu time
the large bu'diugs now owued will be
cut. up into small farms and be prac
tically a solid vilagefrom oue eud of
tbe lake to tbe other, inhabited by
busbaudmen reaping neb rewards
from the culture of fruit.
Silver Lake is a beautiful valley,
witn Silver creek flowing through it
eutire length and emptying into tbe
lake some six miles below town.
Silver Lake is principally owued by
stockmen wbo have large herds of
cattle, horses and sheep and tbe land
used to produce hay aud pasture for
tbe winter needs. There Las however
been some farming done on a limited
scale throughout the valley wbicb baa
yielded good returns, oats going in
some instances as high as 05 to 70
bushels to tbe acre. This of course
was exceptional instances, the average
yield running iu the neighborhood of
40 bushels, but little wheat has yet
beeu harvested although quite an
acreage was sown last fall aud this
spring which promises line but that
which was. produced satisfactory
returns to the producer. The oldor
settlers settled aloutf the creek princi
pally and it has only been iu tbe last
few year that the prairie lands have
neen settled up and attempts made to
cultivate them und see what their
productive capacity was. but in every
instance where intelligent culture
aud ordinary care wero ulven tbe
crops tbe returns were perfectly
satisfactory. We will cite the inst
ance of a man who came here about
two years ago, and last spring cleared
about 40 acres of bis laud of sage
brush, sowing a portion to alfalfa,
a portion to rye, and the remainder
(with tbe exception of perhaps an
acre which was kept for garden) to
bariey. Lawt season as every one will
remember was a bad year for crops
not ouy here, but every where, yet
on this piece of laud we saw alfalfa iu

aud the Government, and each have
pronounced them of the richest aud
highest productive qualilis. This
entire section we fully believe, will
in a few years be oue vast grain field,
yielding its golden harvests and fill
ing tbe pockets of the owners with a
rich return for bis labors. Do not
understand us to mean that every man
wbo attempts to farm will make a
success of it, although at one time it
was the almost universal belief that
any fool could farm aud so when a
man made a failure of everything else
be was advised to go on a farm. That
day baa, however, passed and it is
now conceded by every oue (except
ing of course this old fogy class) that
it t,Hkes intelligence aud brains to
farm. In fact, it takes more intelli

In this section we can ouly say,
that as yet fruit raisiuR has not been
tried, aud while probably all this vast
territory will not be adapted to fruit,
yet we believe there will be portions
that will raise some fruit. As to
vegetables, it will grow all tbe Lardy

belief of tbla eutire section is, that
when once the sage brush is removed
