Reflection of Lightning In Mirror D
prives Millionaire's Son of Sight.
Henry Adams of Atlantic City hap
pened to glance into a mirror dnring a
severe storm and saw the reflection of
a vivid flash of lightning. Instantly
he fell to the floor unconneiois.
When revived it was found that
Adams was totally blind. A delicate
operation was performed on him in
the hope that the paralyzed optic
nerves could be restored to usefulness.
The operation failed, find it is believed
Adams will be blind for life.
Adams' mother once vras struck by
lightninpr. and in his youth she always
cautioned him to rlose windows during
a storm. He was doing this when the
lightning flash came.

keep her prized dogs healthy and beau
