ROSELAND, N. C., MARCH -—— — ROSELAND North Carolina’s most beautiful spot. Sur rounded by sunshine, health, plenty, and hospitable neighbors. A great fu* ture awaits the New South, and Rose land will be a potentfactor in the work. A charming place in a progressive State. What the Roseiand Land Com pany is doing. J?.*® Among the many advantages of the recent Civil War which the South will reap in all the coming years, and which will eventually compensate her for the enormous losses sustained by the con flict, is the development of her great natural resources — her minerals and fertile lands — by thousands who would never know their value but for the en forced explorations made necessary in the trying days of the sixties. It was in the search for homes, and a safe investment with sure returns, that tfte marvelously healthful and curative properties of the pine-laden air of the pine hills section first commanded the attention of the medical world, and the extreme fertility and productive ness of the soil first-attracted the prac tical farmer, fruit raiser and market gardener. Situated in the midst of this nature-favored region, and at its highest elevation, 600 feet above sea level, is Roseland, than which no fairer spot is to be found in the whole length and breadth of North Carolina’s fair acres. Nature has liberally en dowed these sand hills, which, once thought worthless, now attest to the world, by the rapidity with which they are being populated, that their worth is now being recognized. Roseland is located on the Moore County Railroad, five miles from the station of Aber HOW TO REACH ROSELAND. j From BOSTON - Any All-Rail Lines via New York. “ “ Fall River Line via New York. “ “ M.
