Is situated north from the center of the State, and embraces an area of 680 square miles. The face of the country is generally rich, undulating prairie, interspersed with timer-about three-fourths being prairie. Being on the high lands, or "divide" between the Mississippi and the Missouri, the climate is healthy, and the numerous streams running north, south and eat, furnish a good supply of water. The soil is well adapted to the growth of grasses of all kinds, oats and corn-hence favorable for stock-growing. All kinds of grain, grasses fruit and vegetables raised here, and farmers will find excellent land, favorably located, at low prices, and a good demand for all kinds of produce. The county is traversed by the North Missouri railroad, affording good facilities for reaching market. Manufactories of woolen good, farming utensils, carriages, wagons, &, could be established at Mexico, the county seat, profitably. The country trade from Mexico extends 25 miles in every direction.
