LIGHTS AND 'PHONES AFFECTED 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 storm. 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.

The "only American ROV- rnmont olllclal In Germany , " he culls Imstdf. "Tho illseaso Is not a germ com- liilnt , " ho said. "It Is caused by the hemlcal action of certain kinds of lollon. In Kuropo rye prass makoa ho most trouble. Huro In the United Hates the daiiKerous plants are Kold- nrod and raKweed. Indian corn la Iso daiiKerous , though not to so great i decree. "At llrwt scientists thought that all lie.se pollens carried minute barbs , > vhlch sot up a local Irritation. But found that while this Is true of the Koldenrod , for example. It Is not trua f Indian corn , which Klves off per- ectly smooth pollens. So by a tedl- iUH process of elimination and analy- Is I located an albumen. Take rye Brass , for example. An inalysls of one grain of Its pollen shows , water , 10.2 per cent ; Inorganic matter , 3.1 per cent ; organic matter 8r .4 per cent. This organic matter ontalns 3 per cent of fata. 25 per ent of carbohydrates , IS per cent of nitrogenous non-nlhumenous substan * and 40 per cent of poisonous al bumens. "With these poisonous albumens I completed my experiments. A solu- lon of the substance dropped Into thu eye of a person subject to hay fever ; > roduce.s all the symptoms at any time of the year. There Is enough of t In one grain of rye grass pollen to nfect 4,800,000 buy fever patients. "The wind carries the pollen widely. Kindreds of miles In fact. That Is the reason why It Is epidemic In the city as well as In the country Just now. When the steamer was nearly live hundred miles from the land this trip I caught a slight attack from an off-shore breeze. "Only certain persons are subject , and they are mostly brain workers. There Is some nervous connection , not yet fully understood , between brain fatigue and the weakening mem branes which hay fever attacks. Americans especially are subject to It. owing to the high pressure of Ameri can life , I suppose. Old cases of In * tluenza sometimes cause a predispo sition to the disease. Susceptibility to hay fever also Is hereditary. "My remedy Is a toxin prepared like other toxlna , by Injecting1 poisonous - ous matter Into horses. In this part of my work I found a curious thing. Only 10 cent of per the horses we tried are sound and those sensitive horses were all thoroughbreds. A horse has to receive steady Injections for ten months before Its condition will yield the proper strength of se rum. If this serum Is mixed with albumenous poUon and put Into the eye of the person subject to the dis ease there wilt be no hay fever reac tion at all. "
