LIGHTNING AT MILLER BARN.
Silo Was Struck , and It is Miracle
That the Fine Barn Did Not Bum.
The large silo at the rear of the
Rome Miller barn at the Junction was
struck by lightning nt about 4 o'clock

off and part of the roof shattered. The
bolt then entered the barn nnd tore a

did not. but It Is supposed that the
rain stopped any spark that may have
entered the barn.
