A Shocking Storm.
About 10 o'clock yesterday morning , dur
ing the progress of the shower , many of the
citizens in the central and eastern portions of
the city were startled by an unusually vivid
flash of lightning , followed by a peal of thun
der that fairly shook the earth. It was In
stantly conjectured that the electric fluid
had struck somewhere In the vicinity und in
quiries were made to locate the exact spot.
The llrst place found to have been visited by
the destructive current was the residence of
C larlcs M. Hcrl , on Oa land avenue. The
bolt struck the building at tha south end of
the gable , nnd ran down the roof ,
kcatterlng bhinglcs In every direction , and
tearing and splintering the roof boards in a
most reckless manner. It circled around the
chimney , and then entered the house , jump
ing through the attic to the door and tearing
n hole through the ceiling of the room under
neath. Here all trace of it was lost , and its
path of egress from the building Is unknown.
Mrs. Harl was standing In a room on the
lower floor , directly under the spot whore the
celling was pierced by Jho bolt , and received
a very severe shock. She says that the cur
rent seemed to pass directly under her spine ,
ant ) sue has suico suffered heavy pains hi her
back. She Is In delicate health nnd It Is
feared that the fright Incident to the shock
may produce unpleasant results. The domestic - '
tic was ironing In the kitchen , and the tint-

chasing up one tree and down another until
the whole street seemed to ben perfect blare ,
and the trees were torn , splintered and shat
tered so that they will have to be removed.
These trees lire lu front nf the neat little cot
tage of Mrs. Walters , who was at home at
the time , and was so badly prostrated she
may never recover completely from the
shock. She was thrown to the lloor and ie-
malncd unconscious for nearly two hours , but
was finally lestored to consciousness bv tors ,
( rccn and Lacoy. The principal witness of
the lightning's freaks was her sou William ,
who was standing on the porch at the time ,
about twenty-live feet from the trees that
formed the pla\ground.
Ho says that the lirst vivid flash was accom
panied by a qttpcr bu/7.mg noise , nnd then u
huge bull of llru seemed to run down one of
the trees mid strike the earth with a roar ,
and immediately the Iruei and whole stroat
seemed to bo tilled with u bla/ing lire. Ho
experienced no unpleasant sensations from
the trying ordeal. The telephone wire was
molted and thu poles in llio vicinity badly
slmttcied. Mrs. M. II. Judil , who lives ill-
welly across the street , was thrown to the
leer , and ladies in Mr. Ijcrosheim's hotisr- ,
i block away , were b.mly shaken up.
J ho paper on the wall near the telephone
was burned and the instrument considerably
ilnnmgod. Several part.us of N.irinan
"reen'B stable on Broadway , 110,11 by , were
[ urliully stunned. An lets wnguii belonging
to Mnlho'liind & Nicholas was standing on
Frank Street , about ono lunnlitd jurds
away , and both hoi son were thrown from
their feet but not severely injured. Inqui
ries at the telegraph nillces faded tn discover

"lO he liphtning arresters on the outiiilo of
the building worked well and kept the

were binned out , but cm bo replaced with

affected pu tics were not more seriously in

low escape for sovcv.il of them , and they are
to bo congratulated on their good. hu-k. A
