Wther, a show distance above Lebanon, for which she paid $200 per acre. She will devote the tract to growing walnuts, which she thinks will prove a very profitable industry in this section. She will give up teaching and intends to come to Lebanon to reside. She will buy or build a home in this place. Her brother, Orville Crawford, will live with her and care for and cultivate the orchard. Lebanon people are pleased to learn of Miss Crawford’s decision to locate
in this place and will give her and her brother a hearty
welcome. –Lebanon Criterion.

success in the new home.” Corvallis gazette, August 04, 1908, pg. 3, col. 4.
