The soils of Rowan County have
been derived through the process
of weathering and decay of the un
derlying rocks. The different
rock formatiaus have given rise to
variou classes or types of soil ;
for example,, the smooth-textured
siltv or floury like soils in the
eastern and southeastern parts of
the county are derived from the
finegrained slate recks: the red
clay lands in the central and west
era portions ot tne county owe
their origin to the disintegration
and decomposition of the fine tex-
tared granites ; the coarser textur.
ed surface soils of a gray color,
underlain by a red or yellow clay
qbsoil are the resultant produots
of the coarse grained granited and
gniesses. The strips of alluvial
oils developed in the first bottoms
along the streams represent the
finer materials .which have been
washed from the uplands and de
posited by the streams during
heavy freshets and overflows.
These soils are naturally rich and
when reclaimed, by canals and;
literal ditches, and restored to a
position suitable for agriculture
unitization will produce large
yields of corn and grasses .
Most of the upland soils of the
county are strong and inherently
productive, and represent some of
the best land encountered through
out the Piedmont region of the
country. Much of the soil deriv
ed from the granites is very high
in potash. Some of these soils
contain a sufficient amount of
potash to produse large yields for
100 years or more without the ad
dition of potash. Of course, for
the production of such crops aB
tobacco and potatoes, which re
quire large amounts of potash, the
application of potash to these
crops is profitable. Ptrcically
all of tbe soils are deficient in
nitrogeL, but this eUment of .pltnt

On Monday morning about
H :50o'clo3k the fir department
was called' from box 26, corner
Jackson and L berty Streets.
They immediately rushed to the
scene of the fire which was the
house occupied by Charlie T.
Tiohner on the corner o! Kerr and
Church Streets. The 'big motor
truok arrived on the scene alright
but as the Hook and Ladder wag
on was crowing Liberty Street an
automobile owned and driven by
D. L. Brown manager of Brown's
Cafe crashed into it and complete
ly overcurned it hurting Mallie
West and smashing the front
wheel on the oar. This delayed
the company awhile, as they were
at present needing ladders.
The Hook and Ladder wagon was
driven by Henry Glover who was
not hurt. The occupants of the
house were not at home but the
fire company did fine work and
most of the household furniture
was saved.
