NEAR THIS CITY
Residence of Thomas Sullivan
South of City Is Damaged
From Tuesday's Dally.
Lightning this morning about
8:30 struck the fine residence of
Thomas Sullivan, located some four
miles south of this city, but fortu
nately it did small damage. Aside
from burning a few holes in the roof
and knocking a number of bricks
from a flue which it struck and tear
ing up a porch on one side of the
house, It did practically no harm.
The house is occupied by Bert Sat
chell and at the time the bolt struck
It, he was at the barn milking. His
children were sleeping upstairs in
the house, and the eldest, a girl aged
about eleven years, was awakened by
falling plaster and bricks. She got
out of bed and ran to the barn to
to tell her father that the chimney
was falling down. He hurried to
the house and hastily extinguished
the flames which the lightning had
caused. The lightning passed off
Into a cistern next to the house.
It was quite fortunate that none
of the children were injured by the
bolt and that the property was not
destroyed. Quite a heavy rain ac
companied the storm which was very
severe all over this section.
Yesterday morning a mlnature tor
nado with a sharp and heavy rain
fall took place, the storm bursting
upon this city Just before noon. It
came from the northwest and was
sudden in its appearance. For some
thirty or forty minutes rain fell heav
ily and Main street soon had quite a
respectable stream flowing down it
The weather remained threatenint
all the afternoon but no rain fell un
til early thin morning when another-
