There are 4,000 apple-trees, 17,126 peach-trees, 6,651 plumtrees. Truck raised above home consumption and sold amounts to $3,000. The people are waking to the fact that it costs no more to raise a good cow than a poor one, and are beginning to pay more attention to breed. This is true of all other kinds of stock in the county. According to the United States census of 1900 the cotton ginned in this county for the season of 1899-1900 was 5,039 bales, all upland. By the census of 1890 there were 22 sheep with a wool-clip of 250 pounds, 2,629 cattle, 870 milch-cows, 161 working oxen, 3,373 hogs, 16,005 poultry of all kinds, 248 horses and 639 mulea. Among the farm products were 132,855 gallons of milk, 38,878 pounds of butter, 6,082 pounds of honey and 31,028 dozens of eggs.

The schools belong to the public school system of the State, and number 12 for whites and 15 for negroes, with an average attendance of 268 white and 441 colored pupils.
