BARTON COUNTY

Is situated on the western boundary of the State. It is generally high table lands, level enough for agricultural purposes, but well drained. The land is principally prairie, interspersed with extensive groves of timber, consisting of linn, hickory, oak, locust, walnut, sycamore, cedar, cottonwood and elm, of which there will be sufficient for all practical purposes. The gravelly ridges are admirably adapted to fruit culture. Coal is abundant in many parts of the county, and several beds have been opened and worked with success. Limestone and sandstone, clays and sands for building are very abundant. The county is in a prosperous condition, and presents great inducements to stock growers.
