it presents to the immigrant from
the overcrowded states, where cold
winters and hot summers, with
terrible cyclpnes, prevail, who
comes to the coast with some
means, advantages that no other
county in Oregon possesses.
Much has been written of this
western country that requires a
stretch of the imagination to com
prehend, and numerous complaints
aro heard from the class who have
been misled by them, so in this
brief sketch the writer desires to
avoid exageration aa to It present
and prospective advantages, asking
those in the east into whose hands
this may fall particularly those
who have their eyes directed towards
thjs coast to peruse itj 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 docs not "flow
milk and honey," contains within
its bosom wealth and resources equal
to any other country on the Pacific
side of the Eocky mountains.
Marion 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 tho 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.

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 6xtendS from the Willamette
river to the foot of tho Cascade
mountains, a distance of, about fif
The mountainous portion contains
spme fourteen" townships of mostly
unsurveyeti tana; lying in a strip
twelve milei 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 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, xneso mils anu mountains
afford a wonderful summer range
for stock, and many of the more en

ty has over many others is the di
versified farming interest that can
be carried on throught tho entire
year; notwithstanding tlfis is a wet
climate during tho winter months,
the uplands are seldom too wet to
work, and, long before tho prairie
farmers arc through with their Seed
ing, the liill farmer is preparing for
his summer work. And yet the
low lands aro much preferred by
many; the 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
tho season prove dry, tho bottom
lands are sure to bring the best
crops. No better farming land can
be found in the United States than
