f Tenth Sprint/* Gets the School.
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have been withdrawn and Lieath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.

Heaviest Ruin Ever Known With v
Severe Wintl and Considerable H
Hail. x
The most disastrous storm that fl
ever came this way struck Lan L
caster Monday afternoon about ^
5 o'clock, when it rained in tor- (
rents for nearly an hour and the v
wind blew a terrflic gale, shifting '
first lrora one direction, then 1
from another. '
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 | *
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.
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
>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
.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.
