KKM AUKA1U.I-: GROWTH
Of Salem, "Tlio Queen City of the South?
The Salem Improvement Company,
the most successful organization of its
kind in Virginia, had its Hist sale of lots
December 11, 1S8!>. Since that time the
growth of Salem has been marvelous.
About 400 houses have been built: $1,
000,000 spent in buildings and improve?
ments; tho population nearly doubled,
and the business of tho postollieo and
telegraph olllco Increased ?UOporoeut.
The Iron furnace about to go into tdast.
the factories in operation and actually
si-cured will employ several thousand
hands and insure tho doubling of the
present population of 4,000 in another
.Negotiations are nearly closed for ad?
ditional plants to employ several thou?
sand hands, and the land companies,
with an aggregate capital stock of ?4,
000,000, have voted liberal sums for new
industries. A cotton factory and a
woolen mill (nearly completed) that will
manufacture its goods into clothing,
will employ a large number of females.
The early extension of the Baltimore
arid Ohio and the Rotinoko and Southern
to Salem will make it an important rail?
way center, and hasten its growth into
a large iron, steed and general manufac?
turing and commercial city. Salem and
Uoanoke, now rapidly growing together, >
are destined to lie tho great industrial '
center of Virginia.
Salem is the most attractive town In
Virginia; and it may well 1?' proud of
its biiipassingly beautiful locution, its
hoalthful climate, its relitu d sc ci< ty. its
tine churches, its excellent schools, and
of Koanoko College, one of tho lending
Institutions in Virginia. Attractive us I
a place of residence, it now offers un- 1
usual advantages for manufacturing and
general business. No < r town in ,
Virginia has ever equalled Salem's I
n cord of progress for the last twelve I
months. 'I he stage of experiment
passed, and Salem is now llrmly estab?
lished on a solid industrial basis.

graded and the town system of water
worksoxtendod through them. Lots will
be offered on College avenue and other
