LANDS AND HOMES.
the Garden Spot of
Fertility or Soil. Salubrity or Climate. Whole-
funic Water, Excellent Timber and
Delightful Scenery Health,
Marlon county is situated in the
heart of the nmgnillcent 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 a profitable abiding
place, and a home for tho thrifty
fanner, 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, who
conies to the const with some
means, advantages that no other
county In Oregon possesses.
Much has been written of this
western country that requlres a
stretch of the imagination to com
prehend, and numerous complaints
are heard from tho class who have
been misled by them, so in tills
brief sketch tho 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 huvo 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 "ilow
milk and honev." contains within
its bosom wealth and resources equal
to any other country on the Pacific
side of tho Rocky mountains.
Marion county is bounded on the
north by the Willamette river and
Bntte crook which senarates it from
Clackamas county; on the east by
Clackamas county and the Cascade
mountains, which separate It from
Wasco county; on the south by tho
Santiam river and tho nortli fork of

Linn county .and on the west by the

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 tho passes, up
through all the grades of rolling,
hilly and broken, to that of roek
bound canyons and inaccessible
craggy peaks. It is generally heavily
tinibered, and in tho near future
will be valuable for its lumber sup
plies. These hills und mountains

for stock, and many ol tno more en
terprising fanners are availing them
selves of Wn opportunity, and when
the cold frosts of autumn approach,
the stock are brought out to Iresh
pastures, thus enabling them to sur

A decided advantage Marion coun
ty has over many others is the di

farmers aro through with their seed

his summer work. And yet the
low lands aro much preferred by
many; tho yield per acre is generally
greater, and perhaps less labor is re
quired to place the soil in proper
condition for crops; and then should
the season prove dry, the bottom
lands are sure to bring tho best
crops. No better farming land can
be found In tho United Btates than
that on tho noted Howell prairie.
