Marion county is slttinted in the
heart of the'inngniHccnt 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 n profitable abiding
place, and a home for the thrifty
farmer, the cunning artisan and the
lUch 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, who
comes to the coast with some
means, advantages that no other
county in Oregon possesses.
Much has been written of this
western country that requires a
stretch of the imagination to com
prehend, and numerous complaints
are heard from the class who have
been misled by them, so in this
brief sketch the writer desires to
avoid exageration as to its present
and prospective advantages, asking
those in the east into whose hands
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 ti truthful discription of a
laud which, if it does not "ilow
milk and honey," contains within
its bosom wealth and resourc.es 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; on the south by the
Santiaiu river and the north fork of
the Santiam, separating it from
Linn county,and on the west by the
The county contains, including
valley, prairie and mountain lands,
about 900,000 acres.
There are two main divisions, the
mountain and the valley. The
latter extends from the Willamette
river to the foot of the Cascade
mountains, a distance of about fif
The mountainous portion contains
some fourteen townships of mostly
unsurveyed land; lying in a strip
twelve miles north and south by
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
craggy pettks. It is generally heavily
timbered, and in the near future
will be valuable for its lumber sun-
plies. These hills and mountains
all'ord a wonderful summer range
for stock, and many of the more en
temrisinir farmers are availinir them
selves of this opportunity, and when
the cold frosts of autumn approach,
the stock are brought out to fresli
pastures, thus enabling them to sur
vive the winter storms with little
G It RAT ADVANTAGES.
A decided advantage Marion coun
ty has over many others is the di
versified farming interest that can
be carried on throught the entire
year; notwithstbnding this Ls a wet
climate during the winter months,
the uplands are seldom too wet to
work, and long before the prairie
farmers 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; tho yield per aero is generally
greater, and perhaps less labor Is re
quired to place the soil in projier
condition for crops; and then should
the season prove dry, the bottom
lauds are sure to bring the best
crops. No better farming land can
be tound in the United States than
that on the noted Howell prairie,
French prairie, Santiam prairie ana
Salem prairie. The soil of these are
wonderfully productive. With good
cultivation, forty bushels of wlieat
and sixty of oats ier acre can lie
the world, and Marlon county is
about centerally located therein.
To those seeking homes in tho west,
no better opportunities can be
offered, than are found here. Persons
desiring information regarding
Marion county or the. Willamette
valley, those wanting farming
lauds, stock farms, business property
or city residences, will be promptly
and reliably informed by addressing
the well known linn of Willis &
Chaniberlin, real estate agents,
