     CHARLES GRANT resides six miles north from Pateros and gets his mail at Methow.  He is one of the pioneer settlers of the Methow valley and has been constantly engaged in the good labor of improvement and development since the time of his migration to this point.  When he first came here the supplies had to be drawn from Sprague and Spokane and the mail was obtained at Waterville.  He was one of twelve settlers of the lower Methow valley, at that time.  Eighteen hundred eighty-eight was the year in which he took his present land by squatter's right, to which he has since obtained title through the homestead right.  The land is well fenced and supplied with other improvements, including buildings, orchards and so forth.  His ranch is subirrigated by seven living springs and he raises three crops of alfalfa without irrigation.  Mr. Grant raises from seventy-five to one hundred head of cattle each year and produces all the hay and forage necessary for the same on his own ranch.  He has also plenty of horses and raises a great many hogs.
     Charles Grant was born in Grantown, Murrayshire, Scotland, on October 3, 1861, the son of Charles and Jane (Ross) Grant, natives of Scotland, where they remained until their death.  Our subject spent the first twenty years of his life in his native land, being trained by his father in the good work of the husbandman.  In educational lines he received his training in the public schools.  At the age of twenty he departed from his home and soon landed in Ontario, Canada, where he farmed for four years.  He next went to Grant county, Oregon, remaining there and near Dayville until 1888, in which year he came to the Methow, as noted above.
     Fraternally Mr. Grant is a member of the W. 0. W. He is a man of good standing in the community and has never yet seen fit to forsake the joys of the celibatarian for a voyage on the matrimonial sea.
