A representative of the Timks yes?
terday had a talk with Rev. J. J.
Rumburg, who is t<> have charge of
ihe lloanoke Seminary of the Motho
dist Episcopal church of iliis city. A
lot of seven acres was bought for the
purpose of establishing this institu?
tion in 1884, for $2,800, Roanoke, at
that time was quite sm-ill in compari?
son with its pre*ent proportion, and
the price then paid was considered a
fancy one, but today the property
could not be bought for less than
?50,000. The properly is one of the
moat beautifully located in the city.
It is situated at the corner of John
and Park streets, S. \V.. and while
possessing all the advantages of being
well drained ami elevated, affords a
magnificent \ iew of the city ami sur?
rounding country, and tlie hill upon
which the main building will be
placed, is a favorite resort fur those
who enjoy a tine view.
The school will be something of a
novelty here, anil while it will no
doubt prove to he a great success, it is
an experiment, as Mr. Humbug re?
marked. The co-ediication is quite
common at t he North.
A meeting of the trustees will he
held in Lee Street Methodist Church,
on Tuesday next, at which time de?
cisive steps will he taken as to the
erection of suitable buildings. Plans
and specifications will he drawn up

In fact work is expected to be com?
menced inside of thirty days. The
buildings and improvements contem?
plated will cost about$50,000. A new
Methodist Church will he erected on
the grounds at the corner of Park ami
John streets. The school will add
much to the solidity of Roan<">ke, am!
her citizens will no doubt lend sub
stautial support to the institution.

with a solemn cast of countenance.
With ail ids serious appearance, how?
ever, he is something of a humorist,
and is a first-rate, after-dinner
speaker. Accompanying himself and
wife is Miss Mattie Edwards, his
ward. Miss Edwards is a pretty, pe?

he owned the Chattanooga Times.
Before Chattanooga began its won?
derful growth, however, he sold out
his interest rhere and subsequently
went to New York City, from which
place he was called to take charge of
the Landmark on the death of its
founder, James Barron Hope. Mr.
Murray is not only a good newspaper
writer, but he is a fluent and forcible
speaker, and, as is well known, is
prominent in politics as well as the
journalism of the State.
