LANDS AND HOMES.
Marion couutr Is sitniited in the
heart of the magnificent "Willamette
valley, the central gem in the clus
ter of rich counties that form that
princely domain, ami is the banner
commonwealth of the treat north
west in all the essentials that go to
wards making it n profitable abiding
place, and a home for the thrifty
tanner, the cunning artisan and the
Rich in its agricultural resources
in its cultivated and uncultivated
lands, In Its water power, and
minerals; rich lu 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 tiie coast with some
means, advantages that no other
county in Oregon possesses.
Much has oeen written of this
western country that requires a
stretch of the imagination to com
prehend, and numerous conmlaints
are heard from the class who have
been misled by them, so in this
brief sketch the writer desires to
avoid exageratfon 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 a truthful description of a
land which, If it does not "ilow
milk and honey," contains within
its bosom wealth and resources equal
to any other country on the Pacific
side of the Rocky mountains.
Marlon 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
Santiam river and the north fork of
the Santinm, separating it from
Linn county .and on 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
timbered, and in the near future
will be valuable for its lumber sup
plies. These hills and mountains
afford a wonderful summer range
for stock, and many of the more en
terprising farmers are availing them
selves of this opportunity, and when
the 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 the di
versified farming interest that can
be carried on throught the entire
year; notwithstanding this is 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; the yield per acre Is generally
greater, anil perhaps lc-s 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 the best
crops. No better fanning land can
be found In the United states than
that on the noted Howell prairie,
French prairie, Santiam prairie and
Salem prairie. The soil of the are
wonderfully productive. With good
cultivation, Forty bushels of wheat
and sixty of oats per acre can be
FACILITIES FOR MARKET.
The Willamette river, with two
lines of railroad running the entire
lemrth of the county from north to
south, with the Oregon Pacific road
crossing the southeast corner of the
county, afibrds ample facilities to
reach a market in any direction.
Is the capital of the state and !
county seat of Marion county, situ- j
ated on the Willamette river and
on the O. C. railroad. Costly
buildings have been erected, among
which the state capital building,
county court house, Chemekete hotel,
opera house, new public school
building, Catholic school building,
Methodist church, Willamette Uni
versity, and many private residences
and husiness blocks, which will
compare favorably with older and
All things considered, the Willam
ette valley has the best country in
the world, and Marlon county is
about centerally located therein.
To thoe seeking homes in the west,
no better opportunities can be
offered, than are found here. Person
desiring information regarding
Marion county or the Willamette
valley, those wanting farming
lands, stock farms, buslnoi-n property
or city residences, will be promptly
