Ita Admirable Situation In tha Blca
Yazoo County, on tha Famoua Yazoo
Con-wpondonee o( The Appeal.
Yaxoo City, Miss., April 20. Yazoo
County is situated between tho rountioa of
Madison, Hinds, Warren, Sharkey, Wash
ington and Holines. It la traversed by tho
Yaxoo and tlie Sunflower Itivors, by Mlvor
Creek, which connects tho two rivers, and
by aeveral other smaller creeks, atrrnnis
and hikes. Tho eastern part of tho county
is mostly hilly, excopt the lunds alonjj the
Hi Black Uiver, which dividea tho county
from Madison. Tho western part of tho
county is part of tho rich Yazoo l'eltn;
these lands are low, with rich, alluvial
aoil, by aoino called tho Yusoo Kwuuip,
though thero nro hardly any awainpa at
, nil. Thia aoil is very productive,
csHH'ially of cottou, aud needs
no fertilizing. In tho largo forests
is found nuimilanro of flno timber
cypress, various kinds of oak, red gum,
beech, hickory, otc. Tho hind produce,
when cultivated, from ono to two and a
half bales to tho aero. Thia part of tho
-ounty was formerly overflowed during
high water, which left rich deposits bo-
hind, but since tho new iovoo system it is
entirely aafo from overflows. In this part
cstK-eUlly the plantations aro very largo.
Among the ri. liest and most dusirablo
lunds of these low lands I will mention
the Wolf Lnko country, beginning about
even miles northwest from Ynio City,
surrounded by Wolf I-aka and aeverul
other lakes, which run into Yaxoo lUvor,
aud form, to some plaututiona, a natural
On Wolf take la sHnatod tho thriving
littlo town, Iike City, founded only a fuw
years ago. Nearly all tho business of Iko
City and of a largo surrouniling territory
la done by Mr. illiam M. Moaaley,
Virginia gentleman, who, before ho a few
Tears ago aettlud down at I.ako City, lived
at Yazoo City, Mr. MweJur ia an exv
lent business man and cultivated gentli
man, who ha mot with much auccesa in
bis business, which is growing every year,
Jie ship aiout i.JOtl bale jer annum,
and aa part of the year suwui boats run
up to tho town, his shipping facilities are
aa good a if he were located on tho river.
The eastern part of the county, which
ia miwtiy hill lands, is also a very desitable
agricultural country, where not only good
cmpa of cotton and corn are made, but
also every description of diversified crops.
Truck farming and stork raising are lirulil
ablo and are on tho Increase every yesr.
Among the aeveral stork farms 1 will make
po ml mention of the one lately organised
on the large Miarpe plantation in the
neiuhlmrhood nf tlie thriving little town
if llunton. The lilsee U'longs to Messrs.
John K and U II. W illisnis, two promi
nent planter of Yasou, and nU large real
estate owners in Memphis, who are noted
for their public npiritediiiiM. The enter
prise was organised by a slock company,
with 1. lliiueh as president; It. ('. He
plieus, treasurer; and John 8. Williams,
secretary and auditor. Tha above-men
tioned gentlemen, t'nselber with J. K.
lU'dding and K. , II. Ilarnwell, are the di
rectors. The place contains 3, (Mil) seres of
good bill lainl, and the pastures hnve al
.ready bten lined and some slock Ismi-lit.
The' company started with capital of
f-Voui, lint ex'HH't to increaae Ue same to
JI ViKKl. There is no reason to doubt that
this enterprise, which lias been started un
der the motil favomlilo auspin-s, will prove
a grrat success. The stockholders am: II.

business and professional men selected
iM'itutiful locutions for' charming homes
amidst the urund old forest trees which
grew so tall and broadly Hpreading in tho
forusta of the blull's. Most of them had
two or throe acres of lovely turf and tree
surrounding their homes. As tho hamlet
became a village, and the village a city
many of theso were absorbed in the busi

suburb were still many ol thuse loving
Southern homes tolling of hospilulity and
good choer. Tho march ot improvement

homes, where have been reared some of
the bravest, truest and leuderest of the

These places are not merely the protierty
