I'ecently, and wrote of the joys of city
’fe thus: “Thursday we auto’d out to
^ ® country club, where we golfed till
ark. Then we motored to the beach, and
ridayed there.” His brother, who stuck
0 the pot room, not to be outdone, wrote
ack: “Yesterday we trucked over to
t®nd baseballed all afternoon;
en we buggied out to Ellen’s and
eninged with her; afterward we went
j ■ , and pokered till morn-
"^oday we footed down to the plant,
potted till the clock foured. Next
® supped, then we piped a while.
^ We get thru lettering, we’re going
bedstead until six-thirty whistles.”

Notes from Narrows Dam
Mr W. H. Bradford, switchboard
operator, surprised his friends by
announcing his wedding to Miss Blanche
Morgan, which took place on April 24.
Miss Morgan is one of Marshville’s most
beautiful young ladies. Mr. Bradford
has been with the Tallassee Power
Company for about three years, and is
one of our very promising citizens.
Mr. Robert Jones, of Fort Mill, S. C.,
has been engaged as switchboard
operator. Prior to the war, Mr. Jones
was with the Southern Power Company,
but he comes here from France, having
been recently discharged from the army.
Paw Cotton, of the Hardaway
Company, with a big force, is putting
in the railroad bridge, and we will soon
be able to place cars at our unloading
platform, which will be a great help in
getting supplies, etc.
The power-house force are regular in
attendance at the Beers School of Elec
tricity, and are greatly benefited by the
lectures. Books on electricity and
friendly arguments are very much in
Engineer Corbett has served notice on
Farmer Scott that his cows, goats, and
other stock will not be permitted to drink
from the river above the dam during
the summer months. Some efficiency!
Mr. Tom Martin and crew have des
cended on us, and are busily engaged
in making preparations for the Brime
Spring cleaning and painting is in
progress at the power-house and dam,
and things are hustling.
