The Water Spout.
T. A. Cherry, of District Numbee Twelve, was a business visitor in' the city Wednesday. Mr. Cherry informed us th.it the Sunday nioruhig rain was a veritable water spout; that it began about two o'clock and by daylight the entire country, embracing the lowlands, was flooded. Innumerable washes in the roads and the destruction of many small bridges, including a heavy dam age to corn and hay, were the conse quences. Mr. Cherry states that many of the farmers wero heavy losers from the destruction of growing corn. His loss he estimated about four hundred dollars. The Cunningham neighbor hood, farther down, is supposed to have suffered most. The level of the lands i there is lower. The South Reel foot iron bridge was somewhat unsettled by the washing of its foundation, and the expense of repairs and building bridges and restoring the roads will necessitate some outlay by the county. A Business Change. Miss Gertrude Wallace has purchased from Dr. M. J. Quattlebauni the Quattlebaum Pharmacy on Main street, and she is now conducting the business. Mr. Clarence Woodward, who was with W. J. Piatt & Co's. drug store until recently, is manager of the new business. Several improvements have been made iu the store. While the prescription department of the store has been discontinued; a full stock of proprietary medicines, toilet articles, etc., arc kept on hand, and the soda fountain business has been greatly improved and all the new and up-to-date drinks are dispensed. Mr. Chas. T. Wise will continue iu charge of the soda fountain. Miss Wallace is a business lady of ability, and she will no doubt make quite a success of this business. Mr. Woodward has a great deal of exper euce iu drug stores, having been eon nected with Piatt & Co. for a number of years, and he. is fully equipped for tiiiiuager. . The business will be conducted under the firm name of Eod Cross Drug Store. Aiken (S. C.) Journal. Baseball. Jackson and Union City locked horns again Tuesday and Wednesday for the first time since the memorable days of Frank .Watts' administration when Pink Ilawlev did a little week-end throwing. The first game was booked to the credit of Union City, score 2 and 1; second game to Jackson, score 3 and 1. Both were good games, and summing up the teams it is proper to sav that the fielding was somewhat evenly balanced, but if any advantage, Jackson had it in Wednesday's pitch ing. Large crowds were in attendance at both games, and the enthusiasm was nearly as high as the mercury. Mem bers of the Jackson club were: E. Fulghum, S. McClish, H. White, T. White Jackson, E. Jeter, G. Tigritt, R. Murray, E. R. Brown, E. Anderson, F. Noel, T. Both rock and Geo. Howell. Special Announcement. At a recent meeting of the official board of the First Cumberland Presby terian Church it was decided to begin a series, of special meetings on fourth Sunday in August. After one week Rev. W. M.

We invite the co-operation of all the pastors and christian people of the city in this four week's campaign for the good of the community and, as we hope for the salvation of many souls, we urge the people who live in reach of the church to avail themselves of this opportunity.
