is more untrue nor mure unjust than tin
application of such rule to the Ruple ol
Western North Carolina. No where on
the continent is there a more abstemious

A syndicate of gentleman, ut whose
head is Mr. J. II. Bostic, have just com
pleted the purchase of 130 acres of land
in Knmnth, for which they paid $30,0110.
The property is thut formerly owned by
Dr. and Wilbur Burnett und C. S. Cooper
mid is one of the most desirable tracts
The intention of the purchasers is to
improve it, lay it out in five and ten acre
tracts nnd sell II to desirable parties for
suburban residences. Two avenues will
be run from the city to the top of Wood
lin mountain, nnd ut the apex will be
erected a pavilion lor the use of the resi
dents nnd for dances ami picnics. The
dimensions ot the building nre not yet
known, but it will lie large enough to
accommodate nn immense numlier of
people, and will be titled ami furnished
in the latest plans.
At the foot of the mountain at present
is a spring of pure water. This will he

The property itself commands one ol
the best views around Asheville and is
heavily studded with large oak trees.
It it well adapted iu every way for resi
dent purposes. Lying as it does within
a mile and a half of the city it is within
easy access, aud is just far enough re
moved to be of particular value to those
ieople who wish to live near Ashe ville
and not in the heart of the city.
The property will no doubt Ik' named
North Asheville Park. North Asheville
has always been the most prominent res
ident portion of the city and this name it
it thought will be appropriate. It it the
purpose of the syndicate, if possible, to
have cart run to the property. The first
sale of lots will be moderate in price.
Mr. J. li. Uosttc, who is at the head ot
be scheme, hat long been a successful
real estate dealer in Asheville. und his
efforts will be an assurance of success.
The sale itself is a large one, but is
inly one of the many thut it showing
lust which way the straw is now blow-
