Ashland,
JACKSON COUNTY,
Is a very pretty little town of 600 inhabitants, on the line of the C.&O. Coast Overland Stage route, 315 miles south of Portland and 160 miles north of Redding. It is growing quite rapidly and substantially, and its facilities for manufacturing being of a superior nature its future cannot be regarded with any but favorable eyes. The valley in which it is situated is very rich agriculturally speaking, and the stock-raising interests are gradually developing. The scenery in the vicinity is picturesque and the hum of machinery in the sawmills, sash and door factory and woolen mill are sounds that give it an air of manufacturing importance and leave an impression of its permanency that is decidedly encouraging. The power derived from Ashland Creek would be sufficient to drive the machinery of Birmingham. Its climatic features are most favorable and the sanitary condition of the place is superb. A weekly paper, the Tidings, is in every respect an excellent journal and indicates an able management and good support. This is the home of W. C. Myer, Esq., importer and breeder of the celebrated Percheron horses.

Jacksonville,
JACKSON COUNTY,
Is a pretty and prosperous town in the southern part of the state, 300 miles from Portland and 175 miles from Redding. It is delightfully situated on Jackson Creek, a tributary of Rogue River, and is the chief commercial point. It is the county seat and has daily mails and communication with Roseburg and Redding by stages of the O. and C. Coast Stage Co. There are rich silver and gold mines in the immediate vicinity, both placer and quartz, and the valley in which it is built comprises some of the finest grazing and farming lands in the state. Its schools are of a high order, its society excellent and its residents congenial and hospitable. The population is about 800. There are two papers published here, the Oregon Sentinel and the Democratic Times, both ably conducted under efficient managers. The climate is very fine and the scenery picturesque.
