THE FARMER’S OPPORTUNI
TIES IN NESHOBA COUNTY
ByO. C. Roberts, Dixon, Miss,
The opponuniiies nr environments
of a farmer living in Neshoba Coun
ty are equal to, and in some Instan
ces far exceed some of the other
counties.in the hill district of Mis
sissippi.
It has been my pleasure to visit
in twenty five of our counties, and 1
am convinced, after close observa
tion, that none of these are superior
to Neshoba, when we take every
thing into consideration.
Every cuunty'aud ev>>ry state has
its natural advantages and disad
vantages. Neshoba county forms a
square of 24 miles, containing 88,
000 acres of land. A large percent
of this acreage is a sandy loam .soil,
with an ideal clay subsoil. This
soil whjch constitutes a large per
cent of each farm, as a rule, if
properly handled will produce maxi
mum crops. The possibilities of this
land are still hidden to a large ex
tent.
Mature has given us a long list of
plants that will grow and thrive on
Neshoba soil as soil-builders and
market crops.
Our rainfall and mild climate
make it possible to keep a crop
growing on our lands the entire
year. If we work our stock we
must feed them, and if we work our
laud we must feed it. A fat horse
and a rich acre of land are Just alike.
We keep them fat by giving them a
well balanced ratiou: Nowhere in
the south can a farm be bought for
less money, than in Neshoba Coun
ty. We also have many thousands
of acres of ceek and swamp lands,
now being drained, which will some
day in the near develop into a
great corn belt. Stock-raising can
also be made profitable by utilizing
our natural advantages. No county
in the state is ahead of us in the
poultry business. We have two rail
roads and one well equipped town to
handle our farm products, live stock
lumber and etc. We have schools
and churches in every rural com
munity, which are the two great
great agencies for developing a peo
ple to high ideals -and lofty aspira
tions. Our population of 22,000 has
a creditable i eoord for loyalty to the
laws of the land. I feel safe in stat
ing that 00 1-2 percent of our people
are law abiding citizens. 1 also (eel
that this same percent has respect
and regard for Christianity. To re
spent and honor Christianity and
obey the of ouf country, are
the two most important opportuni
ties existing in Neshoba County,
today.
A mental and financial igiant,
though a moral wreck is aud will
always be. a failure. Consolidated
schools and good roads are both
valuable assets, aud lam proud to
state, are growing iu the minds of
the mass of people. It takes time to
bring these things up to their best.
1 feel that there is an under-current
drifting down the avenues of time
towards these valuable conditions.
Neshoba County has an abundance
of timber and good water, We also
have a splendid mail service carried
on daily by ten Post Offices and
nineteen rural routes. A net work
ot telephone lines reach every nook
and corner of the county. ,
Boiled down to its lowest analy
sis, w - have a good place iu which
to live.
