SOME OF ITS CUEER FREAKS IN
PENNSYLVANIA AND OHIO.
A Lancaster Man Kan Across Some Expert- ,
enees In the Bnckeje State Thai Beat
Anything Be Bad Seen at Home Havoo
Among the Sheep In Big OH Valley.
I was once driving over the Martic hills.
In the lower part of this county, with my
wife and baby, flying from a thunderstorm
that was coming up rapidly in the valley,
but I only did not escape from the storm,
but ran right into another one equally
heavy on the very summit of the ridge.
When the two storms traveling in opposite
directions met directly over our heads,
streaks and balls of firs began playing
around like the spitting and exploding off
shoots of a miscellaneous collection of
Fourth of July pyrotechnics. Lightning
danced and flashed on every bit of metal
there was in my horse's harness, whirled
around with the tires on all four v-heels
and ran about and sigragged everywhere
bout the buggy frame, until w were lit
erally sitting In a fiery ebarfc drawn by a
bone incased in flaming harness.
Neither myself, my wife nor child suffered
the slightest physical injury or inconven
ience .from that- awful play of eMctrtdty
about us, and the bone seemed to be im
proved by It, but the nervous strain on us
all was terrible. That extraordinary elec
trical disturbance lasted at least a quarter
of an bonr.
WelL I thought that a little the queerest
sort of an experience with lightning that
any one ever had or was likely to have, but I
have just come back from a visit to Ohio, and
I want to say that that experience of mino
might have been the boss queer one up to
this summer, but it isn't any more. I ran
across some others in Ohio that can beat it.
Take the one, for instance, at Bailyville.
I got to Bailyville at about noon one day.
A thunderstorm had just passed over that
locality, and the clouds had nearly all
broken away or rolled to the southward.
The sun had come out and all uneasiness on
account of the storm had passed away for
thunderstorms in that region are nearly al
ways attended by more or less damage
when the most terriOc thunderclap ever
heard there or elsewhere, so close to the
earth that the earth trembled as if from an
earthquake, and preceded not more than a
second by a flash of lightning of Minding
sharpness, broke from the cloudless noonday
sky. The sudden appearance and terrible
nature of the startling phenomenon par
alyzed the farming community with alarm,
and it was several minutes before any one
ventu' 1 orth to see what damage had been
(lone by the thunderbolt. 1
C ! . ; 1. !
ooiue very amazing tilings were aiscov
ered. In a field on the edgo of the village
a large flock of sheep were pasturing. The
sheep had all huddled together as sheep
will during a thunderstorm, and were still
huddled when the surprising clap came.
When the owner of the sheep went to the
field to see if anything had befallen his
flock, he found every sheep standing just as
they had huddled in the storm, but out
of the 40 in the flock 18 were dead. Not
one of the dead sheep had fallen to the
ground. That was strange enough, but the
18 dead sheep were black sheep, all the oth
ers In-ing white and unhurt. Each dead
sheep had a hole in the back of its neck
around which the wool was burned away.
On a farm a short distance from the vil
lage a big flock of sheep had gathered in a
circular bunch during the storm, and every
outside sheep was killed, 20 in all, and all
white fleeced. On that same farm, but in
another field, was a small flock of sheep,
all white except one, which was a big black
ram. The ewes all huddled about the ram
while the storm raged, and when the thun
derclap came the ram was killed, no harm
befalling one of the other sheep. More than
that, the ram's fleece had been turned by
the shock as white as that of any other
sheep in the flock. That was all the dam
age that was reported during the hour I
was in Bailyville, but it was enough to con
vince nie that Ohio lightning knew a few
tricks that Pennsylvania lightning hadn't
My friend Simon Frey lives at Big Oil
Valley with his wife and 7-weeks-old baby.
One day Simon was hurrying home from
tho valley trying to get there before a
big thunderstorm that was coming up
caught him. The rain began falling before
he got there, and was coming down for cer
tain when he drove into his barn. Simon
stood in the barn door waiting for the rain
to slack up, when his house was struck by
lightning. It seemed to hit both chimneys
at ouce, and a streak of fire ran from one
chimney along the peak of the roof, and
midway between the two chimneys it met
another streak of fire that was flashing
along the peak from the other chimney, or,
rather, where the chimney hiul been, for
both chimneys had been knocked into brick
dust by the lightning. 'When the two fiery
currents met in the center of the ridge pole,
there was an explosion like the discharge
of a cannon, and a fountain of bluish flame,
that threw off snapping and zigzagging
sparks and jets of fire, shot up into the air
at least 10 feet. Then all was over, the
whole exhibition lasting not more than
Simon was only three rods away from the
house, but felt not the slightest effects of
the terrible Bhock. He ran to the house.
not knowing what horrifying sight might
await him there, as it seemed impossible
that his wife and baby could have escaped
death beneath that terrible electrical bom
bardment. But they had, and after the
first shock of his fright was over Simon
couldn't do anything else but lie down and
almost burst with laughter, the lightning
bad brought about so ludicrous a situation
in the house. Mrs. Frey was sitting on the
kitchen table, ber head resting against the
wall, in one hand she held a rolling pin.
while the other was buried to the wrist in
a roll of dough. She was covered with flour
from - head to foot. Tbe baby lav in a
basket of newly washed clothes in afar
corner of tbe kitchen, yelling at the top of
its lungs, xne baby's cradle was turned
upside down in tbe center of the room.
Aside from a severe nausea that troubled
Mrs. Frey all the rest of the day, neither
she nor the baby suffered any ill effects
from their extraordinary experience. Lan
