its wake.
The early part of the night was warm
and sultry but there was-not the least

thunder storm. Shortly after 1 o'clock
low rumbling thunder coidd be, heard'.
!t momentarily grew nearer until it
seemed that the heavy laden skies had
lowered to eirth and were engaged in
mortal combat. Peal after peal of
thunder drowned all other nciscs and
the lighting flashes were incessant and
One bolt of lighting struck the steeple
of the Baptist church and tore many
shingles from it but fortunately did
not set fire to the building. Another
struck a hay slack just outside of the
town and this was soon enveloped in
flames and destroyed. A number, of
trees were struck by the lighting. Re
ports are to the effect that considerable
damage was done all over this section.
Following the electrical storm there
was a deluge -of rain and the streets
were flooded with water. This however,
soon drained off and later in the day
there is but little evidence Outside of

I read with much interest the articles
published in your paper ' under the
caption of "State Wide Stock Law".
Mr. Editor, if Mr. Voter and several
others would just stop for a moment
and think how much more North Caro
lina would be worth today-if there had
been a stock law in it thirty years ago,
thtv. would come to a conclusion dif
ferent from that expressed in their
communications. A stock law would
be the means of stoopiw SO manv forest
fires that do so mucluda"magc to tinToer
and destroy the young trees.
About fifteen vears ai;o 1 visited INcw
Hanover county and the people seemed
to be badly hurt over the result of
having no fences. Two years ago 1
visited the same place and they seemed
to be getting along all right. I spent
a week there looking over conditions.
Last January the people tcld me that
they would not again have their stock
running at large for anyt-hing.
I think a State-wide stock law would
be a great thing for the farmers and
their stock also. I have a few cows
and I could get better results from one
good cow than I can from all 1 now
own. It costs me more to keep other
people's cows out than to keep mine,
in. Stop the hogs from running at
large also and stop more of the disease
and in five years we would not have the
law rcealled for anything.
