22 THE NORTH CAROLINA YEAR BOOK. 

JOHN BLUE, N. S. BLUE, 

President and Manager. Secretary and Treasurer. 

The Aberdeen &Rockfish 

RAILROAD, AND 

Its nesources. 



The business of this road, which has forty-one miles in 
operation, is increasing yearly. 

It has developed a rich and prosperous section, well 
adapted to TRUCK and FRUIT GROWING, as well as TO- 
BACCO, COTTON, WHEVT and other STAPLES. It is an 
an excellent farming section. 

BARGAINS IN LAND. 

LANDS CAN BE PURCHASED ON REASONABLE 
TERMS AT LOW FIGURES, and the wise farmer can in a 
few years make enough to pay for his land. Climate, soil 
and quick connection to the Northern Markets make it an 
ideal section for growing early vegetables and fruit. 

FINE TIBIBER LAND SECTION. 

The main freights of the ABERDEEN AND ROCKFISH 
RAILROAD in its eariy history were lumber and the pro- 
ducts of th" ~\r*e — Spirits of Turpentine, Tar, Rosin. It 
runs throug ha country that furnishes fine Juniper Poles, 
grows fine Cotton, and other crops that give heavy freights. 

FINE WATER POWER. 

On the line of the Aberdeen and Rockfish road is a 
FINE WATER POWER, furnishing siifficient power to run 
a large factory. It has been idle hitherto because far re- 
moved from railroad transportation. It is destined to be 
the site of a flourishing manufacturing town. 

THE TOWX OF RAEFORD. 

Located about midway on the line of the ROCKFISH 
AND ABERDEEN is situated the growing and prosperous 
town of RAEFORD. It has splendid school and church 
facilities, with enterprising and prosperous business houses 
that sell to a large section of the surrounding country. 

FINE OPPORTUNITIES FOR INVESTMENT. 

The building of the Aberdeen and Rockfish railroad has 
opened up fine opportunities for investment, as well as un- 
excelled opportunities for home-making.

TWO CHARMING BOOKS 

By North Carolina Authors. 

North Carolina History Stories. 

BY PROF. W. C. ALLEN, Superintendent of Waynesrville Schools. 12mo. 

Cloth. Beautifully illustrated. Retail price, 50 cents. Also issued in 

five parts, paper covers, at 10 cents each. 
There are forty-five in all in which the lives of many of the leading 

characters of the Old North State are depitced in a most graphic and 
engaging style. The sketches have a local flavor and coloring not to be 
found in a primary history, and they make delightful reading not only 
for the school children, for whom they were especially intended, but 
for every lover of North Carolina. 

Stories of Bird Life. 

BY T. GILBERT PEARSON, Professor of Geology and Biology in the 
State Normal and Industrial College, Greensboro, N. C. 12mo. Cloth. 
Beautifully illustrated. Retail price, CO cents. Also issued in five parts, 
paper covers, at 10 cents each. 

Mr. Pearson gets as close to the soul of a bird as any other bird-lover 
of our c\;\y, and there are few things in bird literature so fascinating as 
the stories which he has grouped together in one of the handsomest 
volumes of the year. 

If you want more information about these books a postal will bring it.
