Mr. Hall intends to put a good por- I
tion of this land to nursery uses— j
the growth and propagation of such
plants and fruit trees as are especial
ly adapted to South Mississippi soil.
He already owns one of the most suc
cessful nurseries in the state which
is located at Scranton, on the coast,
and it is his purpose to make the Hat
tiesburg nursery larger and better
than the one mentioned, from which
he has sold thousands of dollars
worth of fruit trees. He has given
close attention to the development
of the pecan and fig business In this
section and his success demonstrates
that no other part of the counry can
eveel this in the yield from the vari
eties that he has produced. In addi
tion to pecans and figs, numerous I
other kinds of fruit trees and things
that are usually raised in nurseries j
will be grown for the trade* and Hat- j

point for such plants in this section. I
