Lightning Struck Barn
About 0 o'clock Wednesday
morning during the shower a
heavy bolt of lightning struck
the burn at Lou Timermnn's place
near Stella , and the little boy who
was playing in the barn was so
badly shocked that it was first
thought the injury was serious.
The bolt played havoc- with trees ,
boards and other obstructions in
its path besides tearing up the
earth at the boy's feet.
Romano Timmerman was sit
ting in the window when the bolt
struck and ho saw the ball of lire
us it seemed to envelop the barn.
When the men of the houserush -
G'out \ to where the lightning had
struck they found pieces of the
tree over 150 feet from where the
bolt had made splinters of a
handsome tree near the barn. On
reaching the barn they found the
little boy lying palo as death , and
it was first supposed that the bolt
had struck him , but they soon
saw that ho had only been knock ,
ed to the ground and was fright
ed worse than ho was hurt.
The barn was tilled with smoke
and had it not been raining violently
lently there is little- doubt but
what the building would have
been consumed by lire. Fortu
nately the damage was only slight
and aside from the severe shock
no ono was seriously injured.

Five Steers Disappear
When John Findlay reached
Kansas City with a car of cattle
which he had shipped from Stella
last week , ho found five head of
his best steers missing.
Ho says that ho is quite
certain that ho loaded the
steers in the car , for there were
none loft in the yards after the car
started , and ho is at a loss to know
what became of the five animals.
Ho bus been hunting around Stella
for the cattle but has not been
able to find them. The mystery
of their disappearance is causing
considerable comment , and many
people are on the lookout for the
missing steers. Auburn Herald.
It seems to bo true the more a

E. W. Howe , for instance he is
always saying something mean
about women. His paper is full
of slaps at them. And yet when
he recently visited Lincoln the
women presented him with a bo-
quot for his ell'orts in behalf of
womankind. Was that a bit of
irony , or was it sincere ? Was it
the Lady or the Tiger ? Hiawatha -

burn. He was given a hearing
before Judge Parrott , and was
released under a bond of $1,000 ,
which he immediately gave.
According to statements made
to the deputy sheriff by the
young man the charge and
arrest is clue to trouble existing
in the family. Mr Cowell is
but twenty-one years of age ,
while his wife is much younger ,
and the cause of the trouble is
said to be the result of inter
ference on the part of the wife's
family. Those conflicting
stories will be threshed out
at the preliminary trial in
the county court on March 27th.
