Washington, March 28.—Th<
soil survey maps of Rowan Conn

resentative Doughton secured the
survey and W. E. Hearne, a North
Carolina expert in the Department
of Agriculture, had charge of the
work. Iuterestihg rusults will be
revealed by the report of this
county.
The Bureau of Soils of the De
partment of Agrionltuie in co
operation with the North Carolina
Department of Agriculture work
ed together on the survey of Row
an County, and the maps and re
ports are now in the process of en
graving and printing.
Senator Overman and Congress
man Doughton will have several
thousand copies of these publica
tions for free distribution, not
only in the county but through
out the State and the United
States. Reoently the people of
the North and Northwest have
been looking to North Carolina as
a field beaming with opportuni
ties and wonderful possibilities for
future development.

Jackson and L berty Streets.
They immediately rushed to the
scene of the fire which was the
house occupied by Charlie T.
Tichner on the corner of Kerr and

but as the Hook and Ladder wag
on was crossing Liberty Street an
automobile owned and driven by
D. L. Brown manager of Brown’s
Cafe crashed into it and complete

wheel on the car This delayed
the company awhile, as they were
at present needing ladders.
The Hook and Ladder wagon was
driven by Henry Glover who was
not hurt. The occupants of the
house were not at home but the
fire oompauy did fine work and
most of the household furniture
