soils of the county are fertile and well adapted to the culture of hemp,
corn, wheat, oats, tobacco, etc. Hemp has been regarded as the most
profitable crop-yielding from 1000 to 1500 pounds to the acre, which
costs, say $25 per acre to raise and prepare for market, and was quoted in
February, '65, at from $135 to $165 per ton for undressed-good to choice
at St. Louis. Small grains yield abundantly. Horses, mules, cattle and
sheep, do well and stock raising is profitable. Building stone, clay for
bricks, and hard-wood timber, abundant. The general surface is undulating,
and diversified by prairies and woodlands. The Hannibal and St. Joseph
railroad passes through the southern border of the county.
