charged from the doctor's care on
Sunday. None of the wounds in-
flicted were dangerous and the only
shot extracted was one that lodged
in his skull. Tom is happy to be
among the living yet and the way
he got on the outside of his Sun-
day dinner was a caution.

The unexpected discharge of a I
16-pounder at your heels could not
have caused the shivers to chase

than did the terrific crash of thun-
der that followed the blinding flash
of lightning Wednesday morning. I
It came so unceremoniously that I
everybody in town jumped to his
feet in a twinkle and out of doors I
to ascertain the . 1
cause. Many a
one thought Satan himself after
them. The flash of lightning was
like a crazy streak of forked fire
that seemed to zigzaginto every ,
open door and window. Parents
stood in awe , children shrieked and
huddled close , while terrified ani-
mals with a leap bounded away for
any old place. Even the serene ,
complacent disposition of our
friend Ernest Brown curdled as the
uncanny thing shot into his door
and out of the window in less time
than it takes to say skat. While
most of us were pulling ourselves
together Ernest was putting dis
tance between his den and the
prairies west of town. He thinks

While tarrying in town Mr. Bray
had the pleasure of forming the
acquaintance of our esteemed i
townsman , Frank Brayton , which
proved a most happy meeting for :
both of the gentlemen as they soon
discovered upon comparing notes
that they were old time neighbors ,
having lived within a few miles of

pleasant recollections brought to
mind of boyhood days , and the
chance meeting of the men soon .
ripened into a warm friendship :
that no doubt will be continued and
cemented in the years to come and
be the means of more than one en-
joyable meeting to 'talk over olden .
