slightly rolling. There are no prairie lands. The bottoms are not
extensive, but very fertile. On some of the streams the land is hilly.
The soil of the upland is a rich, black loam, and the timber consists
mostly of ash, poplar, walnut, sugar tree, oak and beech. Along the
east and south borders of the county there are some wet lands, well
adapted to grass, but not good for growing grain. The stone quarries of

county is inexhaustible, and is being raised with good commercial
results. The citizens of the county are a thrifty, intelligent set of
men, awake to their own interests, and constantly developing the great
resources of their county.
