Lightning's Pranks
Tom Post, who lives on the north
side, was awakened on Sunday morn
ing at 1 o'clock by a heavy thunder
clap followed by a crackling, sizzling
sound which appeared to be tearing
the interior of his house to pieces.
Tom proceeded with all speed to a
bedroom on the ground floor where
two of his boys were sleepingaged
13 and 11 years respectivelyand
there found that a bolt of lightning
had come down the chimney and cut
up some peculiar capers in the room.
It had forced out the stop in the chim
ney, struck the pillow upon which the
boys' heads were resting and scattered
feathers all over the room.
To grab the children and carry them
out was Tom's first thought, and when
he picked them up he found they were
as stiff as frozen pickerel. Upon
examination he found there were no
burns or scars on them and they even
tually came tothey had merely been
shocked into insensibility by coming
into close proximity with the electric
fluid. Throughout Sunday, however,
they suffered from headache, and Mrs.
Post also felt the effects of the shock
but in a milder form.
Further examination of the premises
by Mr. Post disclosed the fact that a
rug in the boys' bedroom had been
damaged, a board ripped from the
floor, the window casing badly
splintered and the wire screen torn to
shreds. The room through which the
chimney passed on the second floor
was covered with sootthe lightning
had also forced out the chimney stop
thereand the telephone wire outside
the house was burned to a crisp.
Mr. Post did not return to bed again
on Saturday night, but sat up with a
pail of water on each side of him
awaiting further developments. He
could smell fire somewhere, he said,
and wanted to run no chances.
Worth Reading.
It is a matter of greatest encourage
ment to all who are interested in sani
tation and hygienic reform that our
statesmen and government officials
are at last coming to recognize the
fact that the health, energy and stami
na of the people of the United States
is the greatest asset which this nation
possesses. It is also a matter of im
to know that the daily use of
Golden Grain Belt Beer is conducive
to good health. It gives a feeling of
bodily comfort and mental exhilara
tion and makes red blood and health
tissue. Order of your nearest dealer

general publicthe hall was fairly
crowded. The program of exercises,
prepared by Misses Margaret I. King
and Tennie Cravens, instructors in the
Eighth grade, was superbly arranged.
Essays, recitations and vocal and
instrumental numbers comprised the
program and all participants present
ed their parts in a very creditable
manner. Mrs. C. A. Caley sang a
solo and Mrs. H. H. Farnham and
son, Paul, played a piano duet. Rev.
J. W. Heard invoked the divine
blessing and at the close of the pro
gram J. J. Skahen, in a well-worded
address, presented the diplomas to the
fifty graduates. This is the largest
number of Eighth grade pupils that
ever graduated from the Princeton
public schools at one time
Misses King and Cravens have
brought their pupils to the front with
remarkable rapiditythey are profici

accomplishing this task.
