CoL Aull Pleased With Snaranburg.
Col. Elbert H. Aull, editor of the
Newberry Herald and News and pres

was in tSe city Saturday morning, re
turning to his home from a stay at
Glenn Springs. While spending a
couple of hours here Colonel Aull
took occasion to -inspect the street
paving~ of Sartanbur2. desiring to
inform himself on this subject witih
a viewv to advi<ing as to conteinpla
ted street imnpiovements in Newberry.
He was greatly pleased with what he
saw in an automobile ride over the
city arnd expressed himself most fav
oraby as to Spartanbure's growth and
progressive spirit. Colonel Aull was
especially interested in seeing the Lu

HEAVY RAIN AT POMARIA.
Water Covers the Tracic and Delays

litte )ranewcli lizh wr'l.1o%wed at Po
iimaria. It is said that the railroad
crosses this branch about fourteen
times in :bout five miles.
No grert .mount of dami1e was
done by this overflow though while
the water was over the railroad track
and well up in the town it was also
covering some good bottom land and
some good corn:
"The town of Pomaria, in New
berry county. was visited by a storm
of unusual intensity last night. an
the heavy rainfall accompanying the
higdh winds, caused a small branch
running through the place to become
swollen, overflowing its banks and
flooding the streets of the town. The
water at one stage was several feet
deep, and the floors of the stores
and residences in the vicinity of the
depot were submerged. The people
were considerably excited while the
rainfall continued, fearing the waters
of the stream would become higher
and higher. and perhaps do a great
amount of damage. As it was, how
ever, very little damage was done,
for the storm passed off and the wat
er subsided before an acute situation
"The C.. N. & L. train, bound for
Columbia, which was scheduled to ar
rive about midnight, reached the city
this morning, after being held near
Pomaria for four hours on account of
the high water of the branch. The
stream follows a course parallel to
the railroad for a distance of about
five, miles, beginning two miles above
the town and leaving the road three
miles below Pomaria. NWhen high
water was reached the engineer slow
ed down and the train proceeded at
a speed of only a few niles an hour,
as the water covered the track and it
was not known at what minute it
would be necessary to bring the cars
to a stop on account of a washout.
The train was preceded by a hand
car, whose progress indicated that
the track was in safe condition.
"When the train reached Pomaria
the passengers saw an unusual sight.
Many . of the residents of the town
were gathered on the depot platform,
which is several feet above the
ground, and was at the time, a foot
or more above the high w,ater.
''A mile below the town the pilot
ar ran on to a trestle, which was
trembling under the pressure of the
waters flowing beneath and it was
seen that it would be impossible for
the train to get across in safety, so
the - engineer cut off steam and
brought his cars to a standstill. The
working gang of that section was
summoned and put to work repairing
the damaged trestle. The beams
were reinforced and after several
hours delay the train proceeded to
Columbia, reaching the station about
