negro woman, who charged that he bad
sold her one of the lots for 8175, and
producing; a contract of sab" bearing
date September 16, or three days before
he purchased the property. The con?
tract in question acknowledged the re?
ceipt of 810 upon its exi cution, and
upon its back were three other receipts,
one for ?15 and two for $2."> each, the

Another one of the lots bad been sold
to George Wood, a colored man. who

contract as first payment.
Clarke was summoned for preliminary
examination before'Squiro Howorton at

His statement was to the eiltet that
ho had sold the lots in question to tho

that the Hale woman came to him und
asked to lie released, as per agreement;

became dissatisfied, however, and
?ought to have him pay the c ish, as the

The Salem Improvement Company,
the most successful organization of its
kind in Virginia, had its tirst sale of lots
December 11. 1880. Since that time the
growth of Salem has been marvelous.
About 400 houses have been built; $1,
0(10.000 spent in buildings and improve?
ments; the population nearly doubled,
and the business of the postotlice and
telegraph office increased 500 per cent.
The iron furnace about to go into blast,
the factories in operation and actually
secured will employ several thousand
hands and insure the doubling of the
present population of 4,000 in another
Negotiations are nearly closed for ad?

sand hands, and the. land companies,
with an aggregate capital stock of S4.
000,000, have voted liberal sums for new j
industries. A cotton factory and 0
woolen mill (nearly completed) that will ?
manufacture its goods into clothing,
will employ a large number of females.
Tho early extension of the Baltimore 1
and Ohio and the Roanokc and Southern ,
to Salem will make it an important rail- :
way center, and hasten its growth Into
a large iron, steel and general manufac?
turing and commercial city. Sab-m and !
Roanoko, now rapidly growing together,
are destined to be the great industrial
center of Virginia. .
Salem is the most attractive town in
Virginia; and it may well be proud of
its sin passingly beautiful location, its
healthful climate, its refined society,its !
line churches, its excelloht schools, and
of Roanoko College, one of tho leading
institutions in Virginia. Attractive as
11 place of residence, it now offers Oh
usual advantages for manufacturing lind
general business. No other town in !
Virginia has ever equalled Salem's
record of progress for the lust twelve
months. The sta re of experiment is
passed, and Salem is now firmly cstab- j
lisbed oh a solid industrial basis.
The Improvi ment Company proposes ;
to celebrate the anniversary pi its first ;
great sale of lots by offering on Decent- ,
bur tltli and 12th, at reasonable prices, j
some of the most valuable lots In our
growing city. This'property adjoins the 1
