The outcome of this meeting resulted in the Big Springs Company being able to furnish this city with enough power to carry the ordinary day load with the exception of the mills, and also to furnish enough power for lighting the residences and Mr.picture AndIn this connection show. erson of the Big Springs Company suggests that the people be as economical in the use of the light at night as possible in order that there will be enough power for the needs of the city. It Is very fortunate that the city had the present contract with the alBig Springs Company and were ready wired up for connection with their nlant. In about another month the new plant at Fountain Green will be completed after which this company will be able to take care of this city in any emergency. It wll probably be two weeks or more before the prest nt damage to the local plant is repaired. LIGHTNING HITS CHICKEN COOP 9.
