Vivid Imitation of the Ilattle of Mao
Yang by the Force * of the Air Many
Sparrow * Killed by the Electric
A bombardment of the heavens un
equalled In a season of strenuous
thunderstorms took place last night ,
In graphic imitation of the battle of
Llao Yang , the contending ; forces of
the air , charged , retreated and charged
again repeatedly during the short
time It lasted and the hurling of the
thunderbolts was vivid and constant.
At times the heavens were split by
a thousand zigzagging streaks of light
and again they were concentrated In
one great stream of blinding bril
liancy. The thunder varied from the
sharp crack of a pistol to the deep
detonation of a thlrteen-lnch cannon.
The storm came up from the south
west and proceeded northeast , after
ward returning.
The damage from the lively electric
disturbance appears to have been more
serious to the electric light people'and
the telephone exchange than to any
other Interest. Soon after the storm
commenced the lights were retired
from business , and this morning the
telephones refused to work , many of
the local instruments being useless
nnd Battle Creek and other towns
were cut off from communication by
direct means , but many of the towns
were available over circuitous routes.
The damage will be easily repaired
and everything will be In working or
der shortly. The electric light people
were busy this morning making re-
hulred repairs. The telegraph lines
appear to have been unaffected by the
There were undoubtedly houses
struck , but no reports of serious dam
age have been received. At the home
of H. L. McCormlck at the corner of
Madison avenue and Ninth street an
Interesting display of electricity was
noticed In some of the rooms nnd the
occupants were startled but not in
jured and no damage appears to have
been done the house. This appears to
be a favorite locality for the landing
of electric bolts this season. The
house of Fred Langenburg was struck
by a bolt early in the season , then
ater on the spite of the Episcopal
church was splintered nnd damaged ,
and last night the McCormlck home
on the other corner was visited.
A peculiar result of the storm was
he killing of numerous sparrows that
were roosting in some of the tall
trees. The ground and walks under
he trees at the corner of Norfolk av
enue and Sixth street was quite liber
ally sprinkled with the bodies of the
tttle victims.
The rainfall was less than an Inch ,
: > elng not nearly as heavy as during
other storms of the season. The low
barometer and the forecast , however ,
give promise of more.
