MT. PLEASANT STORM CENTER Chimneys Blown Down and Trees Damaged by High Winds.—No Dam age Here. One person was killed and consider able property damaged in Mt. Pleas ant Monday afternoon during a wind; and eleetrical storm which struck that town about 4:30 o’clock nnd moved on southward to wreak further dam age in tile county. Robert Rowland, sixteen-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. John Rowland, was killed during the storin when lie became entangled in some charged water pipes, it being presumed that the pipes had become charged during the storm. His body was badly burned at places where it came in contact with the pipes. During the storm, according to re ports from Mt. Pleasant, a motor in the ice plant of the Tusearora Mills caugiit afire, presumably from light ning. Young Rowland started from the mill to get a bucket of water to throw on the motor nnd struck the highly charged pipes, it was reported, dentil being almost instantaneous. The deceased was a grandson of James Rowland, of Concord, and James Lefler, of Mt. Pleasant. Chimneys on the homes of \V. J. Moose and .7. L. Lefler in Mt. Pleas ant were damaged by wind during the storin. nnd according to roportH received here, roofs on several barns and outhouses in the town were blown off or badly damaged by ttte wind. Several trees in the town were snapped off near the roots and large limbs were torn from others. It is generally believed that Mt. Pleasant was in the path of a whirl wind, this theory being advanced by those persons who noticed that the wind blew in a southern direction between here and Alt. Pleasant and in a northern direction in the town prop er. At several places between Con cord and Alt. Pleasant the highway was strewn with pine needles and in each case the needles lind been blown in a southern direction. However. In M». Pleasant the direction of the wind had changed to the north and the cohverging of the winds near there is believed to have caused the severity of the storm as no damage from wind was reported anywhere in Concord nnd the vicinity of Concord. From Mt. Pleasant the storm moved south to the Barrier mill neighborhood, where it is reported the wind was accompanied by consider able hail. Barns, trees and outhouses in this community wore damaged by wind, it was reported. The rainfall in Mt. Pleasant was no heavier than it was in Concord although, according to reports, there was much more lightning there than herme. The storm lasted only about twenty minutes in this city and there was no wind at all. The rainfall iiere was negligible as it was in Mt. Pleasant. Several Concord persons who were on the highways north of this city, reported on their return home that they had run into several hard rains. It was reported here that a heavy rain fell between China Grove and Salisbury. While several buildings in Mt. Pleasant were badly damaged luring the storm no one was injured except young Rowland. The tower on the Kindley Mill was blown off and large tree limbs tossed about, but fortu nately the falling timbers struck no one. Ban on United States Flour In Poland. Warsaw, Sept.

Raleigh. Sept. 8. —OP)—The week of October -4th to lOtli lias been set | aside as Fire Prevention Week in North Carolina, Stacey W. Wade, in surance commissioner, has announced. The governor is expected to issue a proclamation shortly officially desig nating it as such. Mr. Wade stated. The department is already at work making plans for Fire Prevention Week, and getting in touch with mu nicipal officials and civic organiza tions, through which the fire preven tion program will be made effective, Mr. Wade says. The commissioner has written the civic organizations and clubs through out the state, asking their co-opera tion. Pointing out Hint “3411 lives and five and a half millions lost in property is too great a toll for one state to pay,” the letter continues: “Our citizenship must be impressed by the fact that five and a half mil lion dollars has to be paid out of North Carolina's resources, and that unless the men big enough to take Hue lead in civic activities take the proper attitude toward the rigid en- j forcemeat of our building laws, bet ter construction, better equipped fire departments, safe eleetrical installa tion, better and safer school build ings, dormitories and hospitals, we can reasonably expect this enormous toll to increase from year to year. It is indeed a challenge to every civic organization in North Carolina.” MITCHELL’S CASE TO ARMY INSPECTOR GENERAL Investigation and Report Will Be Made For Army by the Inspector. Washington, Sept. B.— o4 s ) —Col. Mitchell’s latest criticism of the ad ministration’s air service policy was referred today to the inspector general of th# army for investigation and re port. The action of the War Department will not be determined until this re port has been received. Should grounds for disciplinary action be found, act ing secretary Davis will then decide whether court martial proceedings shall be initiated. Major General Helmick, the in spector general, presumably will call upon Col. Mitchell for the facts. On receipt of a statement from the Col. onel that he did make the charges against army and navy officers, con tained in tile statement issued at San Antonio Saturday, General Helmick would be in a position to formulate his recommendations. Sees Little Improvement in Conditions in 20 Years. Wilmington, N. C., Sept. 8. — UP) — After 20 years in the office of the Clerk of the Superior court of New Hanover county, Alajor W. N. Har ris, now clerk of the court, sees little Improvement in eondittions during the ' two decades he has been in the office. One exception was noted by the vet -1 eran officer. “Before prohibition was i enacted, there were usually five mur i dey trials on the docket to every one i now," he snid. “Otherwise, I do not see much improvement. And he pointed out that now there are more ' cases other than murders on the dock et than ever before.” i Major Harries entered the office 20 • years ago as deputy clerk. He be • came clerk six and a half years after i entering the office, and has held the ' position ever since. The betting in New York lias been 3to 1 against H.vlan.

CREEK FLOWING VERY FULL NOW While Very Little Rain Fell Here, There Was Heavy Fall Along Watershed, Causing Creek to Rise. Once again the residents of the city of Concord may use water freely with out having a guilty conscience. Heavy rains in the vicinity of Lan dis and Kannaj>olis Monday after*- noon resulted in a rapid rise of Cold Water Creek and converted the tiny rivulet of water into a raging torrent for a short while, leaving the city in much better shape in regard to its supply than it has been for weeks. So much improved is the How of water that Supt. L. A. Fisher today lifted the embargo which had been placed on the excessive use of water last Saturday and declared that per sons might again use the precious j liquid as they pleased. In a statement issued early this | morning. Air. Fished announced that j the restrictions which had prevented people from watering their lawns or washing their cars would no longer be binding unless there was a resump tion of the drought. In the latter eventuality, a proclamation would be issued similar to the first one, it was said. The rains in the upper part of the county and in lower Rowan were! much heavier than in Concord. Around i Landis, which forms the upper part of the watershed, the downpour con tinued for a considerable length of time. Water in the creek began to rise before nightfall and by seven o'clock it was running through the piping at the top of the dam which had been thrown up during the drought to keep from losing any of the water during the drought. Between eight-thirty and nine, the negro watchman at the pumping sta tion called Mr. Fisher and informed him that the dam was about to be washed away. Mr. Fisher rushed out but before he reached the station, it had gone. When the water reached the top, there was a sudden swish and the whole thing disappeared, ac cording to the negro. The planking which had been driv- I en in the sand below the dam to pre- | vent seepage was also torn loose, the j force of the water being sufficient to break the boards off and wash them j downstream. At is height, the water | half filled the ( channel of the creek. Although the water is down tins morning to what it is in ordinary times, it is sufficient to warrant the lifting of the restrictions. It was the concensus of opinion among the officials of the water and Light Department that Monday’s showers were an indication that the drought had broken and that there would be more or less general rains from now on.
