At the same hour that the heavy
rain fell in this city yesterday, the
Blue Ridge mountains ware the
sceue of a terrible electrical stoiui
and a raiu that approached the wa

The rains filled a little mountaiu
creek near the Swannanoa tunnel on

and it came rushing down between

A terrible electrical storm pasaed
over Statesville last night. Rev. B.
F. Dixon, who came down from
there today says that the storm was
the most terrible he has ever wit

striking terror to nearly everybody.
The storm at and above Ruther

in that section was the heaviest that
has been known in many years
Broad river 13 fifteen feet high, some

its current a terror to every one

have peen thronged all day with anx
