able damage to it, nnd knocking his
wife senseless. Two physicians were
immediately summoned hut It was sev
eral hours before she recoveted from
the shock. It was a close call. From
Watson's it passed arcostloihe new

ing the gable end out, but hurting no
one. It struck Dr. Mosby's icehouse,
Just south of the square, also a tree In
the vicinity. It passed from there to a
tree near the Whltiner Livery barn,
which it entered and wrestled awhile
with in old gray horse, but did no
great damage, A tree down near Wm.
Marshall's iu the north cast part of
town and another In Mrs. Suowden's
pasture in the south east part received
attention. It was an unusual visita

that our people hope it will not be re
peated soon. Htradley who manipu
