Marion county is Hltmitotl in the
heart of the magnificent Willamette
valley, the central gem in the clus
ter of rich counties that form that i
princely domain, and is the banner
commonwealth of the great north
west in all the essential that go to-
ward mukiug it a profitable abiding '
place, and a home for the thrifty
tanner, the cunning artisan and the
Rich in Its agricultural re-ourees.
In its cultivated and uncultivated
lands, in its water power.-), and
minerals; rich in its college, 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 Oregou possesses.
Much lias been written of this
western country that requires a
stretch of the imagination to com
prehend, and numerous complaints
sire 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
oulv as a truthful dlscription of a
land whleh, if It does not "How
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 cast by
Clackamas county and the Cascade
mountains, which separate it from
Wasco county; on the south by the
Santiam river and the north fork.of
the Santiam, separating it from
Linn county.andon the west by the
The" county contains, including
valley, prairie and mountain lands,
about 000,000 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 peaks. It is generally heavily
tinibe'red, and in the near future
will be valuable for Its lumber sup
plies. These hills and mountains
allbrd a wonderful summer range
for stock, and many of tho more en
terprising farmers are availing them
selves of this opportunity, and when
tho 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 Marlon coun
ty has over many others is tho di
versified farming interest that can
bo carried on throught the entire
year; notwlthstbndlng this is a wet
climate during the winter mouths,
the uplands are seldom too wet to
work, and long before tho prairie
farmers aro through with their seed
ing, tho hill fanner is preparing for
his summer work. And yet the
low lands are much preferred by
many; the yield per acre is generally
greater, ami perhaps lens labor is re
quired to place the soil in procr
condition for crops; and then should
the season prove dry, the bottom
lands are sure to bring the- best
crops. No better fanning land can
be round in the United States than
that on the noted Howell prairie,
French prairie, Santiam prairie and
Salem prairie. The soil of these are
wonderfully productive. With good
cultivation, iortv bushels of wheat
and sixty of oats per acre can bo
