Strange Freaks.?During the storm
of Wednesday night of last week, at
about 82 o'clock a bolt of lightning
struck the southern chimney of the
house of Mr. E. Ezekiel, leaving the
ehimney a mass of debris and a wreck.
At the time Mr. Ezekiel was in the
passage, and Mrs. Ezekiel was attend
ing to house duties. Four little chil
dren and their two nurses lay in the
room whore the fearful messenger
entered, but all escaped by the hand
of miracle. The chimney was torn to
atoms to within a few feet of the attio
floor, and the bricks were broken and
hurled over the yard. The attic win
dow next to the chimney was smashed
both glass and frame. The shingles
on the eaves wore lifted, and the attic
floor was bursted through. The bolt
entered the chamber in seven places
where the children lay (ono in a crib
and three upon an iron bodstead with
iron posts). Six holsa like pistol shots
in a cluster leaving a smoky mark on
tho ceiling, and one place at the south
side of the room about six feet from
the six holes showed tho course of the
bolt. It glanced to the iron bed, un
der the crib, and passed out tearing of
the weather boarding directly at the'
head of the crib. The infant did not
awake until roused by its parents. A
calf under the front of the house was
killed. The damage to Mr. Ezckicl's
house.is cousidcinblc, but he has our
congratulations'.Iu\t his fumilyescaped
so fearful a danger. .
