E. 111 , Struck by L ghtning The farm house of Mrs. Thomas Sul livan south of Plattsmouth was struck by lightning Monday morning during the severe electric storm and though little damage resulted from the blaze and no one was injured the affair could easily have been very serious. The bolt struck at the northwest corner of the house and though four children were asleep in the room di rectly below none were injured and but three were awakened. Bert Satchel who lives in the house was at the barn milking the cows and the first he knew about it was when one of the little girls came down and said she heard the brick3 fall. A little later upon returning from the house, where she had been sent for a saw, she told Bert the house was on fire. He immediately went to the house and was j fortunately able to locate the blaze j which he put out by the use of a half i dozen buckets of water. The bolt seemed to travel to all parts of the house and anything made of metal with which it came in contact was partly melted while the woodwork was badly singed. All of the wire screen around the large porch was ruined, w1iileNa spade leaning against the screen had one cornor melted oif. .lso a ring varying in size from a pea to a five cent piece, was burned around each nail used in fastening the tin to the roof. The members of Mr. Satchel's family and the owner of the house are lucky indeed to have suffered no serious loss. The Luildintr is insured in the Farmers ! Mutual of Cass county and Jacob Falter the secretary wa3 notified at once and a meeting of the adjusters will be called to fix the amount of damages. Miss Isabel Wiles was in the city Wednesday evening, having returned from Omaha where she had been on business.

Each gentleman had a arge basket of lunch with him and up on being informed that there was a splendid hotel at Cedar Creek, ac knowledged the fact but declared they would be too busy throwing out their tackle to go up town for supper. Ed had made arrangements with Conduct or Johnson to stop the special train there and returned home that evening. We have sought to have an inter view with the boys since their return but for some unaccountable reason they are keeping close under cover. How ever, we learned from other sources that they developed a huge appetite, and were able to devour every crumb of their lunch; also that Ed, Sr., and Jr., each had several fine plump mosquito bites while the little bass gnawed all bait ofF of Dick's hook. Of course this is only hearsay and when the boys re turn from "Tall Timber" wc will glad y correct any misstatements.
