Now is a good time to put in tout I
orders for eonl or wood.
It is not, long till tin- time lor cold
weather, and the indications are that a \
eold snap will ho here in a few days.
Notwithstanding the delightful
weather of the past two weeks, the coal |
dealers have all been rushed with orders,
delivering about live carloads a day.
Ono leading dealer said to aTlMKs re- !
porter yesterday that, his orders had i
been four days ahead for two weeks,
and that he would have naught up yes?
terday had the weather remained as il
Was Friday. \
People who were out of coal were at i
the otlieos of dealers early yesterday
morning, and before noon stacks of
orders had accumulated.
Nearly all the dealers are a day and a
half behind in the delivery of orders.
Pocahontas coal is tho chief find sup
ply of the city, and for several weeks it
was rather ditheult to secure enough to 1
supply the demand on account of the
crowded eonditi on of the trafllc business
of the Norfolk and Western railroad,
but this is partially overcome.
Dealers who have standing orders for
twolvo car-loads per week are now re?
ceiving about leu.
Wood is a luxury, with forest-covered
mountains surrounding the city.
It. has jumped during the last lev.
weeks from r:.'..">(i to Si per cord, and is
hard to get. at. that.
Dealers say that the cause of this is
largo purchases of wood by the brick [
factories. They say that the brick men
have purchased nearly all the wood in
this section that can be had, and will
use it to burn brick kilns.
Wood is likely to continue a scarcity. 1
but Pocahontas coal is almost inexhaus?
tible, and as soon as the Norfolk and
Western completes its double track
there will be no trouble about, getting

1 oiler for sale aeres of Coal anil
Iron Land, situated in tho Catawbn val?
ley of Virginia, eleven miles front Roan?
oke. The outlook for great develop?
ments on this properly is splendid. The
ore is a vein of soft, brown hematite 32
feet wide and assaying ;"?<? per cent, me?
tallic iron. And the eoal prospects are
line?two shafts having boon sunk, one
?.'<? and the other 25 feet, through solid
coal slate. The property also contains
a mineral spring, which t he analysis of
Lehmann Mager proved to possess re?
markable curative powers for all kidney
troubles, especially for diabetes. The
enormous quantity of coal and ore that
w ill be required for the large number of
furnaces and other Industrial plants in
course of construction in Southwest Vir?
ginia will greatly increase the already
largo demand for these minerals, and
consequently enhance the value of such
property. Two railroads have been sur- j
veyed near the property, one of which
the Roanoke ami Craig railroad, and the |
other, the Virginia Western railroad,
will afford valuable connections. Fuller !
