Mr. Turner need have no question
of their being white shad. The lar

developed. The smal er, eight and

with small spennarics.

To one acquainted with the coun

At the clos of the war that section
of country wns almost a wilderness.
The towns dong the line of the old
Atlantic and Gulf railroad were little
dirty villages, and except the planta
tions along the river bottoms the
country was a vast forest of nine, and
known only as n stock range.
The stock business began to fail.
The pasturage was insufficient to sup
port large flocks of sheep and cattle,
the winters grew harder, and men be
gan to realize that they must turn
their attention to something else.
The small farmers began to adopt
the intensive method, and by careful
tillage, and the use of fertilizers, they
brought the land up to a high state
of cultivation. The timber and tur
pentine interests paid well for awhile,
and are still payiug. Blit the salva
tion of the country was its fine cli
mate, its health and its pure water,
and its great adaptability to fruit
and vegetable growing.
| And to-day the lands that were not
| valued at more than twenty-live cents
' an acre, at the close of the war, are
worth five and ten dollars' an' acre.
The country looks like a big flower
garden, all along the line of railroads
that have been constructed, and there
is not a day in the year that the
householder cannot go out aud gather
something iu the way ot fruits aud
vegetables for the tablo. Finer breeds
of stock have been introduced, aud the
fat beef aud mutton, the rich milk
and butter, and a huudred other
things ot the very choicest variety,
arc to be had iu that blessed laud.
Aud it is tilled witli a happy, pros
perous and progressive people, who
nave turned the unlovely, barren
wilds into a favored regiou that
