Some are profitable, some

During a heavy rain am! thunder storm
that prevailed over (.reene county on Sat
urday afternoon, the new Methodist church
at JamcMow n was struck b) lightning and
burned to the ground. The structure was
one of tlie finest in the county, two stories
high, built of brick ami very well finished
and furnished. The substantial residence
of A. Wickersliam. esq., near by, caught
fire also, but the flames were extinguished
ivefore a great amount of damage was done.
For a time there was a great excitement
In the village, the opinion prevailing that
the whole center of the village, much of
which had been destroyed by the tornado
In 1SS4, would be a sacrifice to the flames.
The village lire department consists of a
hand engine aud buckets, well manned,
but not powerful enough for such a confla
gration. A message was sent to Xenla,
asking for n steamer, but owing to the time
necesar) to secure a locomotive and make
the run, and the probable, insufficient sup
ply of water for fire puriioses, the enia
department tlid not respond.
The church which was burned was un
roofed and otherwise damaged by the terri
me tornado in 1SS4.

some of the trees, left the horse break
loose, and he did not stop until he was un

quite deep. When lie came up betook to
swimming and was finally saved by some
men that weie down the stream a quartet
of a mile. The horse was only scratched a
little, but otherwise he was not hurt. The
buggy, which remained on top, was not
damaged in the least and all in all it was a
