DALLAS COUNTY

Is situated in the south-west central part of the State. Both the surface and soil of the county are diversified. A portion on the county is quite level, or undulating, and some parts broken and rough. The prairies have generally a sub-soil of red clay, which upon experiment has been pronounced well adapted to farming purposes, but we question whether it can be relied upon for grain. The timber land is rocky, but the soil is black and fertile, especially in the valleys. The ridges, which by many have been considered as barren and worthless, we find generally covered with wide spreading arbors of native grape vines, yielding largely of several varieties of wild grapes, which is conclusive evidence of their adaptation to grape and fruit culture. Bryces' Spring, in T. 34, R. 18 "rises in a secluded valley and flows away-a river." It discharges more than 126 cubic feet of water per second, or 10,927,872 cubic feet per day. Lead ore has been found in several localities. The Southwest Branch Pacific railroad will pass near the southern boundary of the county.
