SOUTHERN HARD HIT.
Trestle Washed Away ty High Water In
the Middle Tiger-Through Trains by
There were very heavy rains in the
Piedmont section of South Carolina on
Monday and Tuesday, and at Tuesday
noon there was something akin to a
cloud-burst over the Middle Tiger river,
between Spartanhurg and Greenville,
washing away the trestle of the Atlanta
and Charlotte Air Line. In consequence
traffle along the Southern was very
much delayed for twelve or fifteen
hours. The trains caught at Spartan
burg were moved down to Alston, and
thence up the Columbia and Greenville
division to Greenville, and from Green
ville on to Atlanta. The trip around
by Alston was a Ldetour of some 200
miles to get 30 miles from the starting
The Southern has suffered a number
of other accidents during the past few
(lays, and it was reported from Char
lotte this week that there were two
attempts to wreck its trains near Char
lotte, which were discovered just in
time to save the trains.
On Tuesday, just before the Middle
Tiger bridge went, there was an acci
