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.

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.

White Jackson, E. Jeter, G. Tigritt, R.
Murray, E. R. Brown, E. Anderson, F.
