and 1. B. Beck of near the city
ucrc struck, chimneys being dam
ped and sections of the roof be
'n.. ruined, but no persons were
hurt Numerous trees were struck
-nj broken by the lightning and
Crops' were badly washed in
some sections, and tall corn was
blown down, but, as a whole, the
were beneficial as crops
needed a soaking rain. The total
rainfall was 2.10 inches, or more
than fell during the entire month
of June.
Lightning ran in on a switch at
the Kluniac cotton mill, sparks
lumped from the connection and
Ignited cotton. The sprinkler sys
tem. flooded the place, and water,
running into the basement damaged
ravon stored there to an estimated
extent of $8,000. A barn on C. A.
Goodman’s place in Steele town
sh,P was burned, but horses arid
mules were *ived.
J* Everest, district manager
of the Southern Public Utilities
company here, narrowly escaped
death ^ by electrocution while at
tempting to warn others of dan
gers following the shattering of an
electric light pole by lightning.
While near Woodleaf, Mr. Ever
est heard and saw lightning crash
into a key pole and shatter it,
throwing high voltage wires across
the road behind him. He turned
his car sol that it would block the
highway, left lights burning as a
warning, and started towards the
other end of the danger zone to
establish warning signals for any
one who might come alone the
road. ,
By aid of his flashlight, he not
ed the wires on the ground and
thought he had all accounted for.
As he was proceeding along, his
head bumped into another wire
sagging from some poles brought
down by the falling wires, a hole
was burned into his hat. he was
stunned for a few moments, and
slight burns suffered on the ear
and neck.
He fell away from the wire,
which carried 4,400 volts, and
soon regained his senses, with no
more harm being suffered.

Washington—Joseph H. Chcate,
Jr., looking back on the reborn
liquor industry’s first half year
under goverment supervision, found
the crying need to be social ost
racism of the bootlegger.
"The greatest weapon against
him is public opinion,” said the
director of the alcohol control ad
"During prohibition people
thought that in buyng liquor they
werte sustaining a man who was
fighting a law they thought tyran
nical—niow that is all out. It
takes public opinion some time to
grow, and if public opinion once
gets around to the point where a
man’s friends frown on him for
buying from the bootlegger, we
shall get on fast.
"I think we should mobilize the
profit motive of the legitimate in
dustry against the illegitimate.
Insead of doing anything to drive
a legitimate man out of business
and make it hard for him, I think
we should encourage him, because
he will give the service that the
bootlegger lives by doing.
"He will have a direct personal
interest in finding the bootlegger
and getting him suppressed by the
authorities and he will have a di
rect personal interest in getting his
prices down and his quality up so
as to beat the bootlegger.”
Unemployment Less
New York—Unemployed work
ers in the United States in May
numbered 7,899,000, a decrease of
6 per cent from the preceding
month and 40.2 per cent under the
peak month of March, 1933, the
national industrial! conference
board estimated.
It is not always easy to get la
borers who really labor, but you
can always hire pay drawers.
