The Company owns the Famous uOrc Iliil Property, in Chatham Co., N. C., that has been noted as an iron prop erty for more than a century. Ores from it were used in the manufacture ol iron during the Revolutionary war. During the late civil war the Confederate Government selected this locality as the site of large iron and ordinance works, because of the exceptionally High rade of its Ores. The lack of railroad facilities has made impossible, hitherto, the profitable utilization or tnese ores on any large scale. The locality is now, however, matte accessible by the Cape Fear and Yadkin Valley Railroad, which passes through the property. dome oi tne most noted, iron men in America nave examined and reported on these ores, and so far as the directors of this company know, there has never been an expert report on it that was not highly favorable. Prof. Chas. D. Wilber, inspec- or of mines and mineral lands, formerly State Geologist of Illi nois anu mining expert ior tne jNortnern i'acinc k. it., visited Ore Hill 'n 1884.

The "Manufacturer's Record," of Baltimore, having learned of the proposed organisation of this company, investigated, on its owa account, the Ore Hill Tract. The report of the ex pert, Mr. Thomas P. Williams, M. E., is also given in the prospectus. lhe company recently employed Mr. Frederick II. Smilh, of J?! throve, n noted mining enginper and mineralogist, to ex amine Lhe property-. His report confirmed all that h id been claimed, ami he advised the company to build the furnaces. Mr. Smith is a man of such eminence in his profession that it would be superriuous to make any mention of the s.!:i'" of hi report, lie is a member of the American Society o h il En gineers, a member of the American Institute of Miuiu En gineers. Coke for the furnaces will be brought from Pocahontas, miles, by the Norfolk & Western and Cape Fear & Valley Railroads, which will connect at the State line near Mount Airy, N. C. In the organization of the company the projectors had In view: First The building of furnaces for the manufacture of iron and steel and ultimately the building of rolling mills and other industries for the utilization of the product ot the furnaces. Second The acquisition of a considerable area of land around the locility that might be selected as the site of the furnaces, in order that the company might itself enloy the re sults of its own work, by getting the benelit of the increase in real estate values that would follow the establishment of fur naces and other industries. TmiiD The inauguration of a general development and town-building enterprise, starting with an attempt to secure the location on its property, of iron, wood, textile and other industries, thus bringing together an aggregation of factories and stores, and a continually increasing population, with the resulting need for land for business and resident purposes.

Martin 8t No. 10 Exchange Plc. TOWN SITE PROPERTY. Before announcing its purpose, the Company, through its agents, secured options on about 2,500 acres of very desirable property adjacent to Greensboro, some of it being within the corporate limits, and the whole of it being in a solid body. Aoout i,ouu acres nave already oeen purcnased, and tne remainder is being taken up as the options expire. The whole of it has been secured at an average price of $35.00 an acre. This is no more than has been paid for the town site lands on which most of the industrial towns of the South have been built up, and in comparison with which this has the immeasurable advantages of EXTENSIVE RAILROAD CONNECTIONS And facilities unexcelled by any of them; an active, progressive town of 7,000 to start with. Water-works, gas works, electric light works, paved streets, churches and schools, elegant houses, an established society, and all the attractions that pertain to an old commuinty. THE SURVEY of the Town Lots is now progressing, and it is expected that the Company will have a sale of lots soon as survey is completed. Extra inducements will be offered by the Company to any kind of industry that will locate on the Company's lands, and .ISTTJinOTXJPlIKra- SIT Will be donated. Greensboro is destined to equal any of the Southern towns in push, energy and success. It i3 confi dently expected that there will be 25,000 inhabitants here in five years. LAND SALES Judging from the experience of other development enterprises, it would seem to be within a reasonable and and conservative limit to expect within two years to realize from sales of lots, covering a compara tively small part of the total area of land purchased, an aggregate sum Juol7-tf VHT1Y.

This, when added to the expected profit from the Company's furnaces and other works, make3 the opening for tl o investment of capital one of the most inviting that has been presented to the public since the beginning of the present industrial era in th South. THE COMPANY WILL BUILD AT ONCE TWO 75 TON FURNACES, ONE TO M ' HE BESSEMER IRON AND THE OTHER MILL AND FOUNDRY IRON. SUCCESS There is no doubt as to the success of the Company. Thi3 is purely a North Carolina industry, and there ia no reason why the State cannot become one of the great iron producers of the country. People of North Carolina ! Look at what your sister States are doing. You can do a3 well, if not better, if you will only have confidence in what you have got. Subscribe liberally to the stock and tni3t the men who are at the head of the Company. Their names alone is a sufficient guarantee as to the reliability and successful management; this, also, backed by the foster ing interests of the Cape Fear & Yadkin Valley, and Richmond & Danville Railroads. THE CAPITAL STOCK OF THE COMPANY IS $1,000,000. arge subscriptions have already been received at par. None of the stock will be sold at less than par. The proceeds will go into the Treasury, to be used for development purposes, with a view to making valuable the company lands, and be paid to the shareholder in pro-rata dividends. This is better and surer for the shareholders than to sell the stock at less than par, give away a town lot with it and thus create a wild-cat excitement in drawing for the lots. The lots will be sold for the Company's Treasury, and the proceeds go to developments, encouraging manufactories to locate and paying dividends.
