IN CITY AND COALFIELD
Wreck Delays Traffic
One coal car off the track in a small wreck yesterday afternoon at Fink delayed all the trains on the Clinch Valley division. Train No. 6 arrived in this city three hours and thirty minutes late.
[Fink was between Castlewood and St. Paul.]
Princeton Real Estate Activity
With the advent of trains Princeton real estate, which has been booming for some time, has taken on new life and real estate swapping is by far more common than horse trading ever was at the county seat. All over the town houses are springing up like mushrooms and the town is taking on a busy air that is hard to comprehend unless one were to visit the new city. Princeton is building at such a rapid rate that it will soon have other towns in the county hustling to keep up.
