Writipg from Walla Walla, W. T.,
Joaquin Miller says: "But I must come
to detail and simple facts, nud give some
account of the quality and the price of
land, the markets and the climate. Land
is cheap here. This spot is many hundred
miles from the Pacific ocean; many thous
and from the Atlantic seaboard, so that the
markets of Europe are beyond its reach.
The result is this loamy, black soil is cheap
because the market for wheat is too far
away. - And then these peoplq are still a
pastoral people. They hate to plow.
True, the richest of this land has been
subdued to the plow, but there is little
persistence in its use. When a field shows
the faintes sign of falling off in its prolific
yield of wheat it is gladly permitted to re
lapse into fallow and pasture."

mine in St. Louis county, Minn., has been
