AWASTES WHEN TANK FALLS
Water Tank at Laurens Bonded Ware.
house Falls Thursday Night. Force
of Water Breaks Section of Wall.
'More than 100,000 gallons of water
was estimated by city authorities to
have been 'wasted Thursday night when
the 10,000 gallon water tank of the
Laurens Bonded Warehouse collapsed,
'breaking the water main leading to it.
The cause of the collapse is unknown.
According to the police offlicers who
were on duty at the time, the tank fell
shortly after midnight. The crash was
heard by the officers who suspected
that it was due to the shifting of a
freight train. When they found that
there was no shiftinr veing done at
that time, they thought of safe crack
ers. Finding no evidence of this they
let the matter alone, only to learn the
next morning that it was the water
tank that fell.
The tank was made of 1-8 inch steel,
and its weight together 'with that of
the water that was in it Is estimated
by Superintendent Chapman, of the
water and light department, as having
been over 100,000 Qounds. The weight
of the water alone in the tank was 83,
000 pounds. The tank was supported by
six inch angle beams to a height of
about twenty feet. There was no top
to it and when it fell, the force of the
water .broke a section of the galvanized
iron wall of the warehouse. Little dam
age was done to the cotton stored in
the warehouse at the time.
The South Laurens Singing Conven
tion will meet Sunday afternoon at 2
o'clock pt Lydia Mill church. All sing
ers and the 'public are cordially in
vited to meet with us. We expect some
good quartetts so come and enjoy the
singing w-ith us.
