    JACKSON COUNTY. A post, express and telegraph office, on the line of the California and Oregon Coast Overland Stage Route, 315 miles south of Portland, and 160 miles north of Redding. Population 1,000.
    It is a very pretty little town, 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. A woolen mill and marble works are located here. 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 saw mills, 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.
