The Southern Educational As(ociation offered to donate ?1,000 to some community in Lan master county which would dojate a like amount for the establishment of a school to combine with an academic department 3uo or more industrial branches, uid fuither to help support said school for the first two years of its existence. Three places in the uounty, Tradesville, Fork Ilill tod Heath Springs competed lor the school and each promptly raised the necessary amount but Lieath Springs offered additional inducements in money subscription and a site for its location and secured the school. Like offers were made to other counties in the State but they have been withdrawn and Lieath Springs will be the only place in the State at which one of these schools will bo established. Heath Springs is fortunate in being the successful competitor for a school of this kind. It i9 a iplendid location, and its excellent mineral water, the healthfulaess of the vicinity and the morfil and christian tone of the community will doubtless attract pupils to it from all parts of the county.?Saturday's Ledger. l'yny-Haltsm Stops th?

' Five minutes before the storm ; was raging, there was little in ^ sight upon which to base hopes of even a good shower ; but, all p at once, a cloud came up from I the north-east and the rain came \ down in torrents, the wind blew ' furi?*Tisly and the hail peppered }l down, the lightning Hashed and i ' the thunder pealed. The ruin| " over, the people ventured out to i 1 survey the damage and to find!* that the streams ahout to.vn had ' been converted into raging tor | * rents. While the otorm was in prog ' ress the norm wall ol the old ^ Masonic building fell and crush ed into the windows ot Mr. T. II. 1 Davis' dwelling. A strange ^ freak about it was that about 6 ' leet of the upper portion 01 the wall was lodged upon the roof ot ' Mr. Davis' building, though the ^ top ot the wall was ouly about li feet above the eaves ot the Davis * dwelling. This wall had been j * left standing with a view to util- p izing it in the proposed new'5 building. Hut it weal over and v down. The streets were strewn 1 with limbs and leaves from the '' trees. Lightning struck the * steeple of the Methodist church and tore up a small section of J the tin that cofered it and tore off a few shingles and knocked s out several bricks. The light mug escaped to the ground over 1 the guttering and thus saved the * building from much greater dam- 1 ag*- j The greatest damage was to property at and near the cotton 1 mill. Three new tenant houses ( belonging to Sheriff Hunter were |1 blown literally to pieces. He had two other cottages that were 1 made untenantable and lour ' store rooms that were pretty bad- J ly damaged. He estimates his damage to the 9 buildings at $1200 to $1500. Mr. G. B. Barron sustained considerable damage to buildings 1 in the same community. The dwelling recently built by him and occupied by Mr. W. B. Gulp, was almost a total wreck, being r lilted off the pillars and badly twisted and wrenched. The ' trame ot his own dwelling that ( was being erected by Mr. J. H. Vt.t-.w.o Kl ,1 uirti iicn naa uiuwu 11Uw 11. Mr. Culp's household lurniture, J especially his kitchen furniture and cooking utensils and crockery were almost totally ruined. J The stores occupied by Plyler A: i Dees and by Mr. Culp were also J slightly damaged by llying timbers. j The new mill came in lor a good share of wind damage, about ] 100 squares of the rool having s been blown off which entails a ? loss of probably #450 or #000. j The boiler room ol the old null was tlooded with water to a depth ] of about 7 teet and of course , I everything stopped. 1 Several sash of the old mill , were blown in and the machinery badly wet, but the damage to that mill was not heavy. Two of the mill cottages were badly damaged and hundreds ol garden houses were blown away. Mr. W. S. Langley's buggy house was ulcn lilna'n itntvn oml ?l?ia T<\li ?? * v*vtf tl HUU MIIO liVil ter's was blown olTits foundation. 1 Lightning struck Mr. G. A. 1 Wall's house near the depot and damaged his cook stove inside, J though the dwelling was not dam. j aged much. A tour room house j that is being erected on the pro longation of Arch stroet by Mrs. J. E. Johnson, a widow lady, was m&ik >adly wrecked. What is called he "Centennial" church, colored, in Judge Jones' Caskey place vas also moved oil" its foundation uid Mr. W. H. Rives' barn was inroofed and the roof blown ome considerable distance and leposited in rear of Mr. Borey Cunningham's barn. Mr. Manly Jroxton's barn in West End v?8 blown down and over a nearly fence. The big cow barn on Jr. W. T. Gregory's Lathan place arm was destroyed, and his diary vagin, which was in the barn, ladly damaged. A tenaut dwelling and six mall harns on Judge Jones' limitations e ist of towu were ilown down Monday. The Iweilii.g was blown into splinters ind badly scattered. In it at lie time were a negro woman mil child who were in bed. The Kidding was blown from over hem and in a few moments later he chimney fell barely missing lie oeu upon which iney were yiug. Judge .Jones estimates is losses irorn the storm at 13000. .Joe Foster, colored, was among he sufferers too, his dwelling taving been demolished his lurliture and furnishings broken lip lnd badly drenched by the rain, 'he colored socieiy Hall" on Jtiulap street was blown down. Among ihose who sulFered rom damage by hail were dessrs. J). Robinson, N. B. fJousar, Mrs. O.J. B. Gregory, md .John Edwards, all of whom vere badly damaged, their cot011 having been beaten leafless md almost limbless. Mr. N. I'. Robinson was damaged some iy the bail. East of town Mr. 3. T. Thompson, Mr. Wright, dr. Jos. M. Caskey, Mose Jackion, colored, and all tenants on Judge Jones places were dam* iged badly by the bail. Besides die bail damage to the cotton crop there is perhaps a greater lamage to the corn crop on the ow lands from high water. The irea covered by the rain was comparatively small. It never extended three miles west of town and not over twelve east, there being a good season as far eastward as Union church. At lieatb Springs they bad a fair rain, but very little wind and no bail. Mr. T. Y. Williams was also among the sufferers from bail last Saturday, but a greater sufferer from the high waters Monday. All are agreed that the rain tere Monday was the heaviest 3ver seen by any of our people. Ihe rainfall was prodigious for >o brief a time. The water ran )ver the high embankment be* .ween here and the depot and was probably a foot deep in the Episcopal church.
