is situated in the south-west corner of the State. The land is generally
undulating and fertile, with a good division of prairie and timber. Great
inducements are here offered to those wishing to engage in farming,
mining, manufacturing or stock raising. There are few counties in the
State where each of the above branches of industry can be prosecuted more
successfully. All kinds of grain, fruit, and vegetables do well and return
an abundant yield. The great drawback to this section is the want of an
outlet to market, but the day is not very distant, when the south-western
branch of the Pacific railroad will be completed. The northern part of the
county is well supplied with good building material, and lead ore in
considerable quantities have been found. Mines opened in town, 25, range
25, with success.
