A Bcniitlfnl and Convenient Location
No city in the South has grown with
greater rapidity than has Roanoke,
and probably not one is on a firmer
foundation considering its ago.
Roanoke swells and grows each day,
and unlike most cities.does not grow in
any ore direction more than an other,
but is being rapidly built up on every
side, north, east, south and west.
The influx of population since 18*1
has been enormous, and hundreds of
buildings have gone up to supply the
demand. There has been no lull in
the erection of houses this winter, ex?
cept that occasioned by the rain, and
drive in what direction, you will hear
the sound of the hammer and evi?
dences of building meet your eye.
Hundreds who rented houses a few
years ago pay taxes now, owning
their dwellings, and the erection of res?
idences is the best index to the growth
of the city and the strongest assur
ance that the city is here to stay.
The homes that have been built
here within the past year are, many
of them, as handsome, artistic and
expensive as can be found anywhere.
To accommodate the ever increasing
population, numerous additions have
been laid off ami the lots placed on
the market. Among the many valu?
able properties hereabouts, none of?
fer greater inducements as a place of
residence than the Olude addition.
This property is situated just east
of Glade creek and is traversed by the
Vinton extension of the Roanoke
street railway, which places it in di?
rect communication with the central
portion of the city, a person can live
in that section, ami if his place of
business is in the upper part
of the city, or even in the
West End, he can take the street car
and be ready for the day's work nt
the usual time. Every benefit of a
surburban residence is obtained,with?
out any of its discomforts.
The property is well drained and
therefore healthy. It has been di?
vided Into lots by the laying olT ol
wide streets and avenues. The view
to be obtained from (Hade addition is
beautiful. On the east, towering
hundreds of feet in the air, are the
Bine Ridge mountains, while on the
south the Roanoke river winds itse lf
like a silver thread among the hills,
forming one of the most beautiful
' bits of scenery anywhere in Southwest
Virginia. One of the principal feat?
ures about the Glade property is the
easy terms upon which the lots can be
gotten. The prices have been placed
1 so low that it is within the power of
' every man to own his home. Messrs.
William M. Vager & Co., ar? the
' agents Cor the company ami they will
take pleasure in giving any Infortna

Desirability of and Demand* lor Lot?
As the summer advances much ac?
tivity in building operations is
noticed, and many new houses are in
process of construction. This natur?
ally makes the real estate market
much (inner, and agents are corres?
pondingly happy. Simmons & Co.
have been doing a rushing business,
one of the best since the lirm was es
tablished. The East End property
isxdianging hands very rapidly, ard
many new houses will be erected this
Among the prominent additions in
the East End, is that of the Oak
Uidge Land Company. The addition
lies just east of Behnont and south of
the East Side Land Company's prop?
erty and ad joins the farms of Messrs.
t leorge Taylor and G. W. Carr.
This offers every inducement as a
place of residence. If, is removed
from the business portion of the city
and therefore gives a quiet, suburban
home, wildcat the same time it is I
near the dummy line and therefore
quite convenient to the city.
The land is high and dry and has
just enough slope to give it good
drainage. Gas and water mains are
being put in and new streets are be-1
ing laid out. Everything is prop
tious, and it is destined to take im?
proper place in the front rank. It is
located near the furnace, rolling mill,
bridge works and the machine works,
and offers, therefore, greater induce-[
ments to the workingman, as it is
near his work. A number of neat
cottages are going up and others have
been contracted for.
James S. Simmons & Co. are agents
for the company, and they can give
good bargains. The property is gc
mg rapidly, and if you want to obtain
a good bargain call on them at once.
The prices for the lots are low and
the terms easy, so every man can own
his own home.
