During the storm Thuredey afternoon
lightning struck the residence of H. F.
Keller at the Fslrmount svenue entrance
to Falrmount park. The bolt passed
through the attic and down the chandelier
In the dining room, blowing out four elec
tric light fuses, splitting the gas pipe and
setting fire lo the gas thus liberated. Mem
bers of the household succeeded In shutting
Off the gas before much damage was done.
Several members of .the Kountte Me
morlal church Sunday school, who were
picnicking In the perk Thursdsy afternoon
and who had taken shelter In the pavilion,
were quite severely shocked when bolt
of lightning struck a telephone pole In the
vicinity of the pavilion. One elderly woman

for a few minutes.
I.eland Swenson, son of Postmaster
Swanson of Crescent City, had a narrow
escape from death by lightning during tha
storm. He was sitting on the front porch
of hla fsltier's store when he was knocked
prostrate. He picked himself up and ap
parently was none the worse for his ex
perience. After a short while, however,
he was taken violently sick and had to be
carried home and a physician summoned.
Word yesterdsy waa to the effect that he
was recovering and would probably be all
