WYTHEVILLE V A..
desirable business and residence lots will be
offered for sale, adjoining the present town and
lying along the main line of the Norfolk and
Western railroad, and around the company's reserve for manufactories, through which a
half-mile branch road is being built from the Norfolk aifd Western road. "Along this
branch road there are now in course of construction 1
A woolen and knitting factory, capital $50,000; steam brick plant;
planing mill, sash, door and blind factory; the Virginia stove
and steel range foundry, capital $ 1 25,000.
With these factories under way, and others reasonably sure in sight, a large'and
rapid increase of population is assured, and, to meet the present demand for houses, the
Company is now erecting a number of residences in this locality. A $50,000 hotel
is now being built, and a second one, to cost the same amount, will be erected in the
spring to accommodate the increasing influx of summer visitors.
lAIVTUrifll I T is tllc county seat of Wythe county, which was awarded the
Hill I fir Uli I diploma, witn $5?? premium, at the Virginia exposition in
SHI IISLlSLLL iSSS ill "Minerals and Woods." Its location at the point of
intersection of Norfolk and Western and Virginia and Kentucky" railroad, work on which
latter will begin within a few months, without a reasonable doubt, puts it within easy
distance of the rich coal fields of Tazewell county.
MANUFACTURING SITES FREE.
The rapidity with which all lots put on the market at the company's last sale were
taken, and the satisfaction expressed and handsome profits realized to purchasers, are the
best guarantee that can be offered of the safe and remunerative character of investments
in the above lots. For maps, price lists and information apply to

fine?two shafts having been sunk, ono
20 and the other 25 feet, through solid

a mineral spring, which the 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
will be required foi the large number or
furnaces and other industrial plants in
course of construction in Southwest Vir?
ginia will greatly increase the already
large demand for these minerals, and,
consequently enhance the value of such'
property. Two railroads have been surj
vnyed near the proporty, one of whichv
the Koanoke and Craig railroad, and the^
other, the Virginia Western railroad,
