Marion county is situated in the
heart of the magnificent Willamette
valley, the central gem in the clus
ter of rich counties that form that
princely domain, and is the banner
commonwealth of the great north
west in all the essentials that go to
wards making it apron table abiding
place, and a homo for the thrifty
farmer, the cunning artisan and the
Rich in its agricultural resources,
in its cultivated and uncultivated
lands, in its water powers, and
minerals; rich in its colleges and
schools of learning, and with a
climate unsurpassed for Its salubrity,
it presents to the immigrant from
the overcrowded states, where cold
winters and hot summers, with
terrible cyclones, prevail,
comes to the coast with
means, advantages that no
county in Oregon possesses.
Much has Been written, of this
western country that requires a
stretch of the imagination to com
prehend, ana numerous complaints
are heard from the class who have
been misled by them, so in this
brief sketch the Writer desires to
avoid exaccratlon as to its nresont
and prospective advantages, asking
tuose in tne ease into wnose nanus
this may fall particularly those
who have their eyes directed towards
this coast to peruse it carefully,
feeling that it is not written to lure
immigrants within its borders, but
only as a truthful discription of a
land- which, if It does not "flow
milk and honey," contains within
its bosom wealth and resources equal
to any other country on the Pacific
side of the Rocky mountains.
Marion county is bounded on the
north by the Willamette river and
Butte creek which separates it from
Clackamas county; on the east by
Clackamas county and the Cascade
mountains, which separate it from
Wasco county; pn the south by the
Santiam river and the north fork of
the Santiam, separating it from
Linn county.and on the west bv the
r Willamette river.
The county contains, includlntr
the world, and Marion county is
about centcrally located therein.
To those seeking homos in the west,
no better opportunities can bo
offered, than are found here. Porsons
desiring information regarding
Marlon county or the Willamette
valley, those wanting fanning
tanus, siocKiorms, business property
or city residences, will bo nromntlv
and reliably informed by addressing

forty miles east and west, and com
prises all classes of land, from rich
narrow valleys in the passes, up
through all the grades of rolling,
hilly and broken, to that of rock-
'bound canyons and inaccessible
craKgy peaks. It Is generally heavily
timbered, and In the near future
will be valuable for Its lumber sup
plies. These hills and mountains
afford a wonderful summer range
for stock, and many of the more en
terprising farmers are availing them
selves of this opportunity, and when
the cold'frosts of autumn approach,
the stock are brought out to fresh
pastures, thus enabling them to sur
vive the winter storms with little
A decided advantage Marion coun
ty has over many others is the di
versified farming Interest that can
bo carried on throught the entire
year; notwithstanding, this Is a wet
ciimato during tuo winter months,
the-uplands are seldom too wet to
work, and long before the prairie
iarmers are through with their seed
ing, the hill farmer is preparing for
his summer work. And yet the
low lands are much preferred- by
many; the yield per acre is generally
greater, and perhaps less labor Is re
quired to place the soil fn proper
condition for crops; and then should
tho season prove dry, the bottom
lands are sure to bring the best
crops. No better farming land can
be found n tho United States than
that on the noted Howell prairie,
French prairie, Santiam prairie and
Salem prairie. The soil of these arc
wonderfully productive. With good
cultivation, forty bushels of wneat
and sixty of oats per acre can bo
readily secured. "
FACILITIES FOR MARKET.

lines of railroad running the entire
