A decided advantage Marion coun
ty has over many others is the di
versified farming interest that can
be carried on tnroimht tho entire
year; uotwithstbnding this is a wet
climate during the winter months,
the uplands are seldom too wet to
work, and long before the prairie
fanners are through with their seed

his summer work. And yet the
low lands are much preferred by
many; tho yield per aero is generally
greater, ana perhaps less labor is re
quired to place the soil in proper
condition for crops; nnd then should

crops. No better farming land can
be found in the United States than
