WATER SUPPLY IN CITY
IS NORMAL AT PRESENT
More Water in Cold Water Creek
Now Than Is Needed for Normal
While the rain of Thursday after
noon did not increase the flow in
Cold Water Creek, which furnishes
the city, with its water supply, the
flow in the creek now is larger thau
needed to care for normal conditions,
, it was stated this morning at the of
fices of the water aud light deport
Thursday’s rain fell in various
parts of the county but there was no
( fall along the city’s watershed, which
accounts for the fact that Cold Water
Creek showed no increase in flow af
ter the storm.
The flow in the creek now is more
than enough to care for the city’s
needs, it was stated, and there is
. no reason why individuals or busi
ness concerns should curtail their
supply. In fact the flow in Cold
Water Creek has reached the point
where little more than half of it is
' pumped out by the city.

FINE RAIN IN CONCORD
Drought Seems Definitely Broken
With Three Rains Here Within Ike
Another fine rain, the heaviest
which had fallen here within ftge
weeks, brought relief to Concord
Thursday from torrid temperatures.
Tlie mercury dropped about fifteen
degrees here following the rain.
The drought in this county seems
definitely broken as there have been
three rains within the past week with
a rainfall greater than that for tbe
entire months of August, perhaps.
The water situation here is. rapidly
approaching normalcy. While a cur
tailed program for water usage had to
be inaugurated last week the rains of
this week have relieved the shortage
and the ilsual water schedule is ef
fective here pow.
Reports reaching Concord state that
fine rains fell Thursday afternoon in
Buncombe, Avery, Mitchell and Mc-
Dowell counties, doing much to break
the severe drought in those counties.
More than an inch of rain fell in
Spruce Pine, it was reported, while
about an inch fell in Asheville, Ma
rion, and other cities in the counties
where the drought has been most pro

Tt is .stated by J. W. Denny, phys
ical director of the Y. 51. C. A., that
the relay bicycle race between Con

the Concord team until repairs and
changes to the Y. M. C. A. building
slr. Denny and other officers of the
association, arc doing practically all
of the repair work to the association

much of Mr. Denny's time that he'
has been unable to train the relay
“No date for the meet has been set
yet,” Mr. Denny pointed out. "and the
date will not be set until I have
enough time to meet with the team
and make plans for the race. The

CLEARING WOODS NEAR
CABARRUS FAIR GROUNDS
Fair Offirials Not Only Will Have
Fair Grounds Clear But Will Clear
Up Surrounding Woods.
AVhen the third annual Cabarrus
County Fair opens on October 13th,
visitors Will not only find spic and
span gronnds within the fence, bur
they will find the adjoining woods and
fields in clean shape.
With the end in view of offering
pleasing surroundings to visitors, of
ficials of the fair now have a crops
of hands at work cleaning off under
brush, weeds, paper and other trash
tiiat has accumulated during the year
at places near the fair grounds. It
is not a difficult task to clear the
fair grounds, for few persons are ad
mitted within the fence during the
year and for that reason little trash
accumulates there. However, the
woods near the grounds are popular
with picnickers and other persons
seeking an outing and it requires some
time to get them clean. This clean
ing up process is carried out each
year by the fair officials, however, who
are determined to make every phase
of the fair a great success.

When Cole killed Ormond at Rock
inghaii) all the newspaper accounts
agreed that the manufacturer went up
to tile cx-sprvice man from an angle
that left the latter unaware of an
enemy presence until the firing began,
ami that Ormond was unarmed, had
no weapon on hie person. Recently
it lias been brought out for the de
ft’ ise that there was a pisto! in a I
; Docket of the Ormond car. on the left
hand side, poeket buttoned down. It
is admitted that the deceased sat on
tlie right hand side of the car, smok
ing a cigarette. If he had been ex
pecting an attack he would certainly
bare had the pistol in a more con
venient position, provided there was
one in the ear. But the defense,
which little by little is indicating
the grounds on which it expects a
verdict of not guilty, is intimating
that in view of threatening letters
written the defendant by the deceased
that the former had a reason to ex
pect attack and that the pistol in the
car is evidtnee of the purpose of the
deceased. Presently we may hear
that Ormond really drove up to the
Cole office and defied his enemy, dared
him to come out: or that Ormond ad
vanced on Colt and the latter retreat
ed "to the \y|ll,” after which he fired
in self-defense. If* you have cap
able lawyers black may be made to
appear white when a life is in jeop
Furthermore there is intimation
that Cole’s daughter, former sweet
heart of Ormond, will testify in behalf
of her father, and there are also inti
mations of the "unwritten law."
which wc arc free to hope are not
true. Os course the young woman
may be expected to help her father
if*she can. That is natural; and the
public will hope that she will come
off the witness stand with the same
respect that has been accorded her
since the unfortunate tragedy in
which she Is to an extent involved
because of the fact that the dead
man had been her lover.

A GROUCH NOT WANTED.
There is nothing so harmful to suc
cess as being a grouch. Stomach, liv
er and Intestinal trouble make one
grouchy. Mayr’s Wonderful Remedy
will help overcome three and usually
gives complete results.
Our advice to everyone troubled in
this way. especially when accompan
ied witli bloating in the stomach, is
to try this remedy. It is a simple,
harmless preparation that removes the
catarrhal mucus from the intestinal
tract and allays the inflammation
which caused practically all stomach,
liver and intestinal ailments, includ
ing appendicitis. At the Gibson
