Just a short distance without the
corporato limits of Uoanokc is situated
the property of tho Midway Iron Com?
pany, and the adjacent property is now
being built up at an amazing rate.
Several companies are oporating in
the vicinity, and fields where tho corn
waved in last summer's winds are now
resounding vith the noise of hammer
and saw, and next week the spike faotory
will add its quota to the cheerful din of
The Homo Investment Company is j
now surrounding tho spike factory with
neat cottages, which thoy will seek to
encourage the workmen to purchase
They are neat structures containing six
rooms (.-ach, with a cellar, and tho com?
pany is preparing to erect thirty at
once, before the end of the year there
will bo quite a village.
The Suburban Home band Company,
of which T. W. Sims is secretary and
treasurer, has thirty-live acres immedi?
ately adjoining this tract, which thoy
will grade, lay olT and put upon tho
market next week. Already threo or
four lots have been sold at private sale,
and the owners will build upon them
I'pon this tract,too,will be situated tho
plant of a manufacturing plant employ?
ing betwoon 100 and 200 hands, the de
fails of which aro now maturing, and
which will be made public next week.
\S bile the Suburban Company was
instituted as a means of providing
suburban homes for Uoanokors, the de?
mands for sites lor manufacturing plants
and their establishment in that locality
have created a new demand for homes
Along the line of these companies
will be constructed by the Vinton band
Improvement Company their splendid
shell road boulevard connecting Vinton
and Uounoke with Salem, which will at
once be a great business thoroughfare
and a pleasure trip. This road will bo
the route to the blue Itidgo and Coynor
Springs, and will be the most beautiful
drive in the Valley of Virginia.
Tho Midway Iron Company is pro?
gressing rapidly lo completion of its
plant. Steam connection will be made
to-day, tho machinery tested, and every?
thing put in readinoas to begin the work
of turning out railroad spikes by tho
hundred tons on Monday.
As an instance of how one industry
creates a demand for another may be
cited the case of the cooper shop. In
itself this is an adjunct to tho spike fac?
tory. It lias shipped to it the different
portions oi an unmade keg and fashions
them into the sinke receptacle.
Mr. O. M. br?ck, or Monroeton, Pa.,
who secu ed the contract for furnishing
the Midway Iron Company with kegs,
has been prospecting tor a site on
which to ertot tho plant for turning out
tt.e heads and staves, and has an option
on a place on the Koanoko and South?
ern, near which may bo obtained the
in ci ssary lumber.
On tins site Mr. brock will have build?
ing und machinery having a capacity for
making bends and staves for 20,000kegs
each mouth, and this establishment will
engage the timo of lil'ty or sixty em?
l bus wo will manufacture from raw
material here in our midst that which
is now manufactured in Pennsylvania
and shipped here. It is also thought
! that material may bo had in this vicinity
fur making the hoops.
