The matter of replacing the an
tiquated and dilapidated dam across
Stoner Creek at the Paris Milling
Co.'s plant is still in abeyance, with
chances of it remaining so.
Some of the corporate interests
concerned are in favor of replacing
the old dam with a modern up-to-date
concrete structure, while others
think repairs to the old dam would
be sufficient for the present. Civil
engineers sometime ago made sur
veys, measurements and deep sound
ings with a view of ascertaining the
probable cost of a concrete dam, but
the matter remains in statu quo.
At a recent meeting of the City
Council City Attorney W. H. Whitley
was instructed by the Council to
notify the Paris Water Company that
the construction of a new dam across
Stoner Creek immediately was abso
lutely necessary in order that a suffi
cient supply of water to meet the re
quirements of the city and the water
company's customers might be con
So there you .are! The water will
be dammed if it isn't, and is bound
to be dammed if it is.
