Js Promised by Weather Bureau
i: for Today
Yesterday Was Very Unpleasant arid
Depressing Day Threatened Storm
on Beach Made Crowd Return to
Following a severe electrical and
raiii storm which passed over the
city during the early Wednesday
rooming hours, yesterday was one of
the most depressing days of the sum
mer. While the thermometer did
not record higher than 06 degrees
yet the humidity was fearful and the
atmosphere was heavy and depress
ing. The storm at Wrights ville Beach
reached its height, it being estimated
that the wind attained a velocity of
from 40 to 45 miles an hour. The J
electrical display was brilliant and
for awhile persons on the beach
feared that great damage would re
sult, but the storm passed over with
out causing any accident or trouble.
Last night 'between 9 and 10 o'clock
o'clock there was another electrical
and rain storm, which however, did
not attain the proportions or sever
ity of the Wednesday morning distur
bance. On the beach the electrical display
again was brilliant and the wind
was blowng at a high rate, causing
large numbers of those who had
gone to Lumina to return to the city
-on the early cars. Later the storm
: subsided entirely.
The forecast for today promises
little relief, it being stated that
there will be no change in tem
peratures. Observer Felger of fhe local
weather bureau says:
"The warm wave covers the great
er portion of the country and reach
ed Its greatest intensity in the south
where maximum temperatures of
100 to 102 were reported over a con
siderable area. In the central and
western sections the temperatures
ranged from 88 to 96 degrees.
"There have been local showers in
the Mississippi and Missouri valleys,
South Atlanttc states, ajnd the
southern Plateau region
"Low pressure areas are central
in the upper lake region, middle
slope and northern Rocky Mountain
sections, white the pressure is about
normal in the extreme south.
""The pressure distribution indi
cates generally fair and continued
warm weather for this section to-
night and Thursday with light to
fresh southwest winds."
An Associated Press dispatch sent
out from Washington was as follows:

LECTURE TO BE ILLUSTRATED
In connection with the Farmer's in
stitute which will be held at Wilming
August 8th there will be deliv- )
ered an "illustrated lantern lecture by
Dr. F. L. Stevens of the A. & M. col

ers' institutes in this county have
been accompanied by such an illus
trated lecture, and the innovation will
without doubt prove popular, as it has
already done in many of our adjoining
r-rmntips. This lecture covers the fol
lowing subjects: Plant improvement,
plant breeding, seed selection, protec
tion of plants from diseases and in

LUMUEH LULLS TO M l
Decision Arrived at in Conference
North and South Carolina 31ills to
Suspend Business During August.
Virginla 3Iills May Take Same Ac-
At an important meeting of lumber
men held at Sumter, S. C, a day or
two ago, representing mills in North
Carolina and South Carolina, certain
conditions facing the trade were con
sidered and it was decided to shut
down the mills in these two states dur
ing the month of August
This action Is in sympathy and
along the same lines as that taken by
the lumber men of Georgia and Flor
ida at a meeting held in Jacksonville
a few days ago, they having decided
to suspend business in August. Within
the next few days a meeting will be
held in Norfolk of the Virginia man
ufacturers and it is practically certain
that they will take similar action
As a result of this practically all
the lumber mills from Virginia to the
Gulf of Mexico, along the seaboard,
will be shut down during the month
This action is taken on account of
the mills having too much lumber on
hand, the shut down giving them an
opportunity to work off the heavy
supplies. It is estimated that the
month's interruption of production
will take about 300,000,000 feet of
lumber from the markets of the coun
try. The over supply it is stated is
caused by the large increase in the
number of mills during the past year
and the enlarged capacity of many of
the old mills. The demand this year
has been as great as heretofore but
the increased production resulted in a
surplus which must be disyosed of.

3Ir. N. B. Rankin Suffered
Yesterday Condition Last
Friends of 3Ir. N. B. Rankin were

while at the Carolina Yacht Club on
Wrightsville Beach Mr. Rankin -as
not rendered unconscious by the stroke
and he was soon taken to !Mrs. Norlh
rop's cottage and medical attention
given him. Dr. James Hall was first
to reach the side of the sufferer and
later Dr. T. S. Burbank was called in
to assist in the treatment of the case.
For a .while the stroke affected the
entire left side, but the treatment
rendered was successful and last nigbt
only part of the left arm was affected.
Mr. Rankin was brought to the city
early in the evening and taken to his
home on Fourth and Orange streets
where it was reported that he was get
ting along splendidly. He stood the
trip from the Beach excellently and
was resting comfortably at 11 o'clock.
The condition of Mr. Rankin is not
considered serious and his friends will
be gratified to learn that it is not
nearly so serious as was reported and
early and entire recovery is anxiously

Death at1 Wrightsville.
On the evening of July 21st, at
Wrightsville Sound, the death angel
entered the cottage of Mr. P. H. Craw
ford and took his wife.
The call came sudden and unexpect

cause of her death.
Mrs. Crawford was the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Loftin, of Kinston, N.
C, and a faithful member of the
Christian church of that city. She
leaves a husband and three little ones.
A faithful wife and devoted mother
has gone to obey the summons that
