Mr Wilcher, Wife and CI did Kill ed A Great Many Others Seriously Injured. ' ' By The United Ties?. Charleston, AV. Vn., July 4. The greatest disaster in the history of tins community was the wreck ing of a Kanawha & Michigan train at Farm, a village 8 miles north of this city this morning. There is a trestle there 35 feet high, which caught fire at some time din ing the night from an unaccount able cause, probably a cinder from an engine passing about midnight. While the bridge was not consumed its foundations were so hadly dam aged as to render it unsafe to cross. No notification of the fact was received here, however, and the train, the first of the day, attempted to cross it, as usual. The engine and baggage car passed over safely, but the two coaches went through. Engineer Pat Conner seemed to re alize t li : it nation, and pulled open the throttle in the hope of pulling all ;: vtf lv. hut it was too late. LET US ALL GO To the Grand Idlewild Sale of Lots Next Wednesday. The time is drawing near for the grand auction -sale of lots in this city Wednesday, July 8th, is the day, 3:30 o'clock p. m. is the time. All arrangements have been made, and a big time is expected. Now let everybody in the beautiful City of Oaks emulate the example of Charlotte, Greensboro, Winston, Durham and other places, by clos ing all places of business-and turn out en masse to the big sale. The occasion demands this, and we trust that the citizens and busi ness men of Raleigh are no less interested in the welfare and progress of this city, than others are in their cities. Stick and pull together is the key to the success of other places. Now remember the time, Wed nesday evening July 8, 3:30 o'clock p. m. Free ride to the grounds and refreshments in the grove.

Durham Real Estate Sells Readily and Investors Have Made Money. Staff Cor. State Chronicle. Durham, N. C, July 4. I went out yesterday with President Crow- ell to take a look at the new Trini ty College grounds and the build ings now in process of construction. They are magnificent buildings of beautiful architectural design. The main building is very near comple tion and will present a handsome appearance. The Technological building, which President Crowell is erecting as a memorial to his first wife, is a large tnd stately structure, admirably adapted for the purposes for which it is to be used. Five neat, tasty and attractive residences for the professors are about completed, and give an air of home-life to the college grounds. There are other residences for pro fessors which were already on the property when Mr. Carr donated it to the college. I am every day more impressed with President Crowell's business capacity, great faith, wonderful ca pacity for work and endurance. lie works all the time, and yet is not too busy to build castles of great dimensions. Some people would M- 1 call them air castles. I do not. He dreams of great things for Trinity. They will come, surely. The next thing to be erected is i hotel which will have 75 rooms and have dining capacity for 275. It will contain the library, reading room, book-store and parlors. The plans show a tine building and work will commence shortly. Adjoining the Trinity College property, is the land of the Durham Consolidated Construction compa ny. While I was upon the grounds I saw Mr. R. II... Wright, the wide-awake and busy manager, di recting the opening of a new street, which will put residences on this property within a stone's throw of Trinty College campus. This will make these lots very desirable. NO LOSS OX DURHAM DIRT. Durham dirt always pays. Par- ties who buy lots at the big sale will make big nivney. Nobody has lost on Durham dirt. A gentleman bought one half acre in acorn field a few years ago for $230. He put a house that cost $3,000 on and rent ed the property at $G00 a year. He could sell any day for So, 000. In 1884 a gentleman purchased the corner lot adjoining the post office, for which he paid $1,G00. A few days ago he sold the lot for $3,000 a net profit of $1,400. One day lait week, a gentlemen here purchased twelve lots paying the entire lot. 1J f ; illustration "vhich goes to what real estate here will be worth in the near future. Eighteen y.ars since a small piece of land lying near the Trinity Col lege property, and containing twenty-two acres, was sold for the paltry sum of two dollars and ninety cents per acre. In 1884 the same parcel of and was disposed of for $2,200, and now its tax val uation is over $13,000. Here is another: Six years ago a seven acre plat was sold at $250. Within six months it sold again for $640, and in less time than six more one half of the seven acres was readily purchased at $050. These examples are enough to show what exceptional advantages and opportunities Durham offers the speculator and capitalist for the in vestment of his money. No other town in the State or in the South can excel it. But the occasion that offers itself only once in a man's life comes off next week, July 7th, 8th and 9th, when the Durham Con solidated Land and Improvement Company puts up before the public for sale the 1,200 beautiful lots which are now ready for the inspec tion of the buver. These are gala days for Durham, and although it challenges the world to show a record of advancement more rapid, yet they will make a periodin Dur ham's history never to be forgotten. W. Ii. D.
