Number of Lot Sales Surprise
the Whole Neigh
LOBLOLLY PINE A RESOURCE.
BION H. BUTLER. j
The activity that has struck Knoll-
wood is surprising to everybody, forj
while many people insisted that the
proposition was a certain winner,
some of the optimists said in the long
run, although some figured that ac
tion would be speedy. Then there
were others who guessed that the
prospect would be of slow develop
ment. But mighty few expected that
by this time twenty lots would be
sold from the new plans, and that oup
house w’ould be already in the hands
of the masons and others entering the
architect’s jurisdiction. But here are
the list. It includes those lots that
had previously been sold near the
Midland road, which brings the total
number now off the market to 28.

There is no reason for any surprise
about this rapid movement there at
Knollwood, for with the improvement
of the Pine Needles grounds, and the

is in the future for that vicinity. Then
with the opening out of the under

and the defining of lot boundaries a

who go that way see a picture they

more lots in a short time. Knollwood

Mr. Olmstead has already been
cussing with Mr. Yeomans plans for
a second house in the group, and the
second one will be located in conform

may be harmonious, and what is ful

shall not interfere with the view or

free rein at the Pine Needles and the
results show her skill in this respect.
The loblolly pine, known also as
the old field and shortleaf pine, is
one of the South’s greatest natural
resources as it grows rapidly and is
naturally adapted to large areas in
nearly all of the Southern states. Its
profitableness as a crop and how it is
best grown and harvested is told in
