Harisal.-A Korku village on the banks of the river Sipna and situated 46 miles from Ellichpur on the Dharni-Burhan-pur road. Houses 24, population 119. A P. W. D. inspection bungalow and a forest naka are its only public buildings; it is a forest village and the headquarters of a forest range.
Hiwarkhed.-Taluk Morsi, houses 831, population 3528, is a village on the Morsi-Warud road about 6 miles from the former town, having the usual school, post office and sarai, and a weekly bazar held on Mondays. Shriram Rupram Marwari, who is a large local moneylender, owns a cotton gin and press, and there is another cotton gin also owned by a Marwari. Jaggery from the Multai tahsil is a great article of trade at the bazar, and in former times a considerable amount of salt was brought here from various parts of Berar for sale to traders coming from the Central Provinces. Outside the village are four temples, very old but not particularly notable for size or workmanship; a modern temple to Mahadeo has been built by subscription at a cost of Rs. 15,000. In days gone by, Hiwarkhed was the headquarters of a Naib and a Risala of the Nizam's cavalry was stationed here; a tomb is shown by the villagers as that of Turk or Trak Sahib who was an officer in it. It is surmounted by a cross and is therefore probably the grave of some early European adventurer. Before British rule Hiwarkhed was the scene of a great hookswinging festival in honour of the deity Meghnath. Meghnathis, that is men whose prayers had been answered by the god, would fix themselves to the hook and turn eight times, afterwards making an offering of money according to their means.
