Five or Six Thunder Storms Every Twen
ty. loar IIours-Hneli Odd and Fantastic
Capers Never Cut by Lightning Itefore.
Konwtcn. Juno 18. Tho poet week has been
remarkable (or mora thunder storms than
were ever recorded for a similar period
In the history of New England. Ttioy were nil
extraordinary onos, too, and tho mlschlot
wrought by zlgrnc lightning Is not exceeded
by that engendorod by tho Jersey kind. 1'lvo
and 6lx thunder showers t'ravorsed thowolkln
dally, and dwellers in tho Land of Steady
Habits have been In tho unsteady posture of
dodging aerial bolts pretty much all the time.
At nlcht flaBh aftor flash painted tho land
scape In bluish unoarthly oolors. and the
qulck-comlnc thunder bellowed and rumbled
In the earth's sholl. Iiousos roolod with tho
ponderous rovorboratlons, windows woro
bakon, crockery rattled, and no end of
cream In old-fashlonod farmhouses or
blc country crcamorlos was soured. Tor
five days the big black showers chased each
other up and down Connecticut, forward nnd
back, eight hands around, all ohaussi'o: ust
scarfs of foe wero trailed alone tho sodden
valleys among the hills, and last nlcht rain
was still falling, the sky etlll a blanket of black
Ioloud, and lightning blazing away at tho un
happy Nutmeg Btato. Everybody Is dlseour
iffod. and thousands havo tno rheumatism
also. Crops aro rotting in tho fields, the straw
berry harvest Is sour and geuornlly rotton. and
tho only thing that eooms to thrive is tho tent
caterpillar, whloh has encamped In a vast host
and woven bis hideous wob over forests and
orchards. Last nlcht tho Stnto of Connecticut
asked Itself seriously. "Will this dreadful
weathor ever cud?" nnd the far-ocholns thun
der crowlod a dismal and boding reply.
Nevertheless, tlioro is a comical foature In
the situation. So many nnd so odd and fan
tastic capers were never cut by lichtnlnc bolts
before. There is hardly a neighborhood in
Connecticut that has not been hit by an elec
tric lance, and incomputablo is tbo damaco
therefrom. Trees have been splintered, wuolo
herds uf cattle speared, tho ground has been ,
plouched In zigzag furrows; barns have boon
burned and houses riddled, scalpod. or de- i
mollsbed. Many farmers are still picking out j
flotsam from ravaged barns and corn cribs, or
sorting over tho ruins ol their households.
In all parts of tho State tho telephone, and I
telegraph linos aro dilapidated, for almost as !
fast as a olrcult Is repalrod after one withering
bolt, another cntchos hold of tho wire and
yanks It on" tho poles. It has boon rarely that
an Inquiring ottlzon could talk lle minutes
over a tolephone wire without getting his
mouth full ot brimstone and his ears full of
crude electricity. The lightning has done most
of the telephouo talking for ten days past, and
the tolephone girl " al central," when V2'2i or
17 b2 is "rung In." Is by no moans confident
whether it Is John Henry tanith that sunt tho
call or a malignant thundorDolt. .
Many notablo freaks lun u boon reported in
all parts of tho Mate on tho part ot tho light
ning. At New Haven John Helcherof lloilco
street suddenly was Bmittcn with the ideu that i
two earthquakes had clinched jiit above his I
house tree and the big one had fallen on tho
little one on tho rldgo pole; ami when tno
smoke and brimstone cleared away in his
bead be found that a thunderbolt had smooth
ly pared on his chimney top nnd then slid down
me west wan oi me uouse, peeling ou tno Clap
boards, lath, and plaster in a path live loot
Iwklo, after doing whlcn It went on into the
eartn. Mrs. C. Mdnnor'a bnrn in Wilmington,
opposite tho Kim Tree Inn. was burned by
lightning In the samo shower, and almost at
the same moment two valuable Jereoy calves
belonging to bamuel Colt, in Kast Farinlngton,
wore killed under a tree. Another barn was
burned at Wlnobester In tho samo hour, and a
bolt hit the Episcopal Church at Torrington
and knocked all the teetn out ot the ohurch
organ, which was still chattering, however,
wben tho sexton visited it ten minutes later.
In Now Britain one bolt oxplodod just like a
Socialist's bomb In the centre of tno town, a
few feet above ground, nnd tho Hash was so
blinding that every one was dazzled. It did no
damage, though. Another bolt, about as big
as a stove lid, nit the houses of Kate Smith and
Robert Coe, in Ansonla. doing slight Injury,
and at the same moment an audacious ballot
llchtnlng ploughed a hole through Krauss.fc
Co.'s corset shop, at Illrmingham. and ripped
the stuffing out of $100 worth of corsets. Hart
ford was In darkness for a long time one even
ing because the electrlo fluid had burned out
the armatures in the electrio lighting plant.
The samo night a bolt dropped a big cotton
: wood tree Into splinters of bark and
1 fibre in the same city. Wilson's barn. In
Walerbury. was burned on tho same evening
by llshtonlng, and at the same moment John
Peter's barn in Watertown blazed up: both
were burned. Jay Knowlos's tine house in
Lanesvllle was totally distroyed in the same
thunder storm, several oiher buildings in the
same place were hit, nnd a score ot trees up
rooted or twisted Into gigantlo and fantnstio
snarls. In tho samo shower Charles Meaehln's I
barn In Bridgeport was damaged t.'OO. and a lot i
of other building were siruck. Thomas Jtow
nn's saloon In Dam bury was set on tire, nna
the chimney knocked to piecos in the house of I
James Warnock at Wostport.
In mrmlnghum. in u Inter thower. all tho ar
tlllery of I'luto seomod to hnve boon let looso j
one evening. A holt struck Goorgo Colby of i
Oak street as he wan going homo from work,
and he fell dead on the roadbed. Mulsh marks
on hlsibody. like tho scrolls on a ta'tooed man.
showod wheio the lightning ontored aid quit
ted bis body. His remains wore nut found un
til the next morning. Hailstones as big ns
chestnuts rained In hhowora ou tho house
rools. and people fled into the street as It they
were crazed. Tho flro alarms jangled con
stantly in meaningless disc rd. nnd tho big
gongs and factory hells tollod. untouched by
human hands. Two loung women In tlm
street burning heme hod their faces peltod
with tho ice grapnel, und blood followed each i
stihgiug bhot. 'iho ground was strown wltlx ,
branches of troes Tho carbon i were knocked
out of the electrlo nrc lights, and tho night

In New Haven athundorbolt bit the Ameri

it into shreds, and thou slid upward to tbo
gilded stafT ball and varnished It with n play
ful blue oloctrlo halo for asocond. Illgiiail
atones pounded the pavements. Two hundred
telephone wires were knocked out of service.
One hash of electricity made every ono of tho
8HV "drops " on tho blc switch board fall with a
sharp metallic clack. Another bolt as big as a
sugar bowl broke on an Iron-capped hitching
post before A. W. Glenson's residence on bum
ner street, and one piece flew and gougod a
great chunk out of a tree, while the other ex
ploded with a rattling report on the sidewalks.
In Derby Wallace A Sons' olllce was sot on

snap shot at Br. Treadwell's house, going
clean through a bull's-eye window into tho
attio without touohlng tho Irani, and It
strewed things right and loft in tho apart
ment. First it hit an old Iron bodstea.l. but
that was too tough, so it glanced, went down
Into Itbe Uootors Bleeping room, rlppod 'oir
plaster, smashed a banging plctuie. ture oil u
BHmple of the window screen, opened tbo blinds
and forced them back, and enrlnklod bits of
window panes all about tho floor. Then the
ball of Are skipped to the tin roof, lifted and
shook It until It rattled hoarsely, bounded to
the ground, dug a hole, rebounded and rode a
wire Into a Norwny spruce, and thence went ,
down Into the earth Mrs. Troadwoll was In '
the chamber and she said she felt ns " if i

Brooklyn, yesterday morning. His toplo was
"Many-sided Churches."
" Hore at the end of tho nineteenth century,"
he said, "we are passing through a porlod of
transition, and tho changes In tho domain of
religion alone are innumerable. Tno church
has caught tho spirit of the ace and is lifting
itself out of Its former narrowness. We should
cultivate the church's relation to tho ro crea
tive side of human nature instead of trying to
check it. Why Bhould weloaotho develop
ment of the human frame to athletic clubs ? Is
not muscular Christianity worth something ?
Tho aeraga deacon would look aghast if a
gymnasium or a tenpin alley wero built hy the
church, and tho mothers in 1-raol would hold
uo tnoir hands In holy horror. Tbo trouhlo
; with us Is that while ourclotgy are theological
, and philosophical, they are not practical and
know almost nothing nbout mundane affairs.
" There 13 much In tne talk of our critics that
we havo got Into an ecclesiastical rut. and I
bollotothat tho cbuich of tho future will not
bo as one sided us It has been. It will treat
man as a whole. Let tho church tako Its ex-
I ample from M. Pnul, who was all thlngb to all

Tho man wh goes around painting 'Come to
Jesus' on stones ami lences ami asks you
I plumplylf you are saed Is a spiritual dunco.
To make lovo to n young lady at tho first bit
ting Is just as ridiculous as to begin on a man
on his spiritual bide llrst. Honesty compels us
to say that tho church has nt inado horselt
BUltlciently interesting, and this Is no bettor
shown than In the nown town metropolitan
districts from which the chuichgoors havo
moiod up town, anil the church finally dlos of
sheor exhaustion. It piously gives up the ghost
and a bu-luess block or a tenoment house
takus its pln o. Then what whs once the gar
den of tho Lord becomob a neglected wilder
ness. You can reclaim these nstbwamp lands,
but not with a feeble mission hero and thero,
with a dilapidated organ ami a few old hymn
books The down-town ihurch of tho future
will be a Inrgo church and ono broad in Its
theology, The people will not consent to dog
matic bollefs. They tniibt bo allowod to uso
their reason. You must proWdo a plain work
ing theology and give a great latitude to Indi
vidual opinion. .Sucl' a church us this would
look into tho banitary welfare of the commu

TO ATTACK 310VXT KEXIA.
Sr. Meyer Will Try to Heaclt the Top of
Africa' Second Hlchent Mountain.
Berlin. Juno 15. Dr. Hans Meyer, tho bril
liant mountain explorer, nnd tho only ono as
yet to reach tho tots of tho two summits of '
Klllma-Njnro. though forty-flve Europeans bad ,
visited the mountains before him, is preparing
to visit Africa for the fifth time. Ills destina
tion now is Mount Eenia, the second highest
mountain In Africa, which rises out of the
plain north of Mount Elllma-Njaro, almost un
der tho equator. Kenia has never yet boen
surmounted, though Joseph Thomson and
Count Teleki have both been far up Its com
paratively gentle slopo. The enormous mass
Is about 19,000 feot high, only 700 feet
lower than Klbo, tbo higher summit ot
Killma-Njaro. Kenia, however, is considera
bly less imposing in appearanco than its
southern rival, becauso though Its too Is per
petually snow crowned, it rises from a lofty
plain that Is upward ot fi,GO0 feet high, while
the plain nt tho foot of Kllima-Njaro Is less
than 8,000 feot high. Consequently Konlu does
not appear to tho obserter to be nearly so high
as Rilima-Njaro.
Dr. Meyer expects to spend next wintor In
the Kenia region, ond If It Is within bis power.
he will add Kenia to his other great conquost.
He expects to live for several weeks in the
neighborhood of the snow line or nbove It. and
bo will take an amplo supply of sheepskin
sleeping bags, blankets, and rubber eovonugs,
i in addition to ice axes, snow spectacles, Alpine
i ropes, climbing Irons nnd other noiessaryar-
j tides. On his last trip to Klllma-Njaro ho hud
i tnls Alpine equipment, and found that it was
essential.
Dr. Meyer expects to bo accompanied by Mr.
! Ludwlc PurtBcbellor of balzburg. a moun-
tnlneer of the llrst rank. Purtschellor was
I with him when he reached tho top of Klbo. ft
1 is absolutely necessary to hat o an accomplish-
i ed mountaineer with him. He cannot depend
i upon negroes above tbo snow Hi o. uori- It
snfo to make tho rno.-t difficult and dnngorous
part of the ascent alone.
Tho groat uncertainty regarding the present
onterurlBO relates to the attitude of the natives
who livo around the base ot KoLia. Neither
ThomBon. Tolekl, nor Petora found thomvery
friendly, while ut Klllma-Njaro Meyer wns i
i gren'ly assisted in his task by tho friendly and I
helpful attitude of Chief Maroalc.
i 'i he great difficulty experienced on tho upper
I elopes ot theso snow-tonpod mountains in the. I
1 African wilderness arises from tho sioedy '
failure of the food supply for tho explorers and
porters. Taught by experience. Mnjcr. on his i
i last visit to Klllma-Njaro, organized a commls
i Buriot servico for carrying icgular supplies of '
food to the upper regions. He arranged that i

nulcldo theory was at llrst advanced, hut the
improbability and well nigh impossibility of a

BY IDE FALL IllYER BOAT,

a I'ollre Ktatlon Instead nl to 11 Molt
Hired, nnd Mam i Held lor Aliductlnn.
Tho big Fall Illvor boat Puritan, which got In
ot H'i o'clock yostordny morning, had two vory
mystorlous passengers on loard. One wns a
cunning-looking Chlnnman, whoso faco did not
toll whothcrhowas20or40, and tho othorwas
I n bluo-i-yod littlo girl of 15. Both travollod on
I first-class tlcKats, but on tho trip down the
' Sound they kept aloof from each other and
I didn't give tho ofllcors nnd tho other passen
gers tho slightest sign that thoy were making
the trio together.
When tho Puritan was fast to her dock, the
Chinaman, who was tho only representative of
his raco on board, was among tho first to land.
Ho waited on the pier a momontuntll tho littlo
girl enmo tripping down the gangplank dressed
in a noat gown of dark brown and a jaunty
black straw hat over her brown hair, bho
seemed to be on good forms with tho Mongo
lian nnd chatted coyly with him as thoy walked
down tho plor. Tho lonngors and hack drivers
on tho wharf stared at tho Ill-assorted pair, but
the girl didn't seem to mind It a bit
At the door of the shod tho Ohtnaman mot
Edward Qarkln. who was waiting with his
hack for a faro, and began to bartor with him
on tho spot. Garkln thought things looked
mighty queer, and when the Chinaman told
him ho wautod to be driven with tho girl to 11
Mott stroot, Qarkln romomborod that that wns
the houso from which the Chlneso girl, Buon
Yee, was rescued by The Evening 8us Hn
agreed to carry thorn both tor SI. but when ho
got on his box ho whipped up his
horso and drove to tho Prlnco street
pollco station. It was noorly 9 o'clock when
Garkln rushed up to tho Sergoant at tbo dok
nnd told him of his two passengers. They wero
hustlod out of tho hack and taken before Cnpt
Thomison. Tbo girl was crying. Cnpt. Thomp
son took the pair right un to Jeffeison Murkot
Court, where tho whole story cumo out before
Justice White.
Tne Chinaman said ho was Ham Kce. the
proprietor of a laundry at Pago nnd Broad
stroot9,Provldonce. aud tho girl said sho was
Annie Lawrence, and lived In Provluenco. too.
Bit by bit sbo told Juetlce White how sho hnd i
como to mako the trip to Now York with Sara
lvoe. Bho met him. Bho said, about u month
ago when sho was working In a wire fnctory t
on Stowart street. Sho wont to his laundry
llrst with a friend of hers who Introduced her '
to Sam, who was vory nttontlvo to hor. Anulo
made three othor visits after that to the hum- ,
dry nlono. and on her last visit Ham enticed her ,
Into n back room ot his shop, she said, nnd
took advantage of hor. Then Sam prono-od '
that thoy come to ew York and promised her
silk dresses and a diamond ring or two. Sho
showed the Judge n fancy gold ring on her
linger which she said bam had given her as a
proof of his Intentions. Ou Snturday night
Sam Keo left his laundry and went to Fall
Blver, where bo got two state looms on board
the Puritan. Ho was too well known In Prov
idence to tnke tho boat there for Now York.
Annie was crying bitterly when sho flnlshod
her tale, and there was an added Hush to her
bright rod cheoks. Sho wouldn't glvo hor ad
dress In Providence nor say anything about
her peoplo. but said she had been working for
a .Mrs. Stare just before sho left, having lost
her position In tho wire works.
By this time Knm Koo had got hold of a law
yer, who advlsod him not to Fay unvthingund
to ask for an examination. Justice White ac
cordingly hold him In $1 .WO hall for exaiulnn
tltn on tho charge of abduction, and sot tho
case down for nevt Fridny.
Sam Keo gavo his nedigroo to tho Warden In
vory good Lnglisli. Ho is '23 years old aud said
he lived at 1 Mott street in this city. Agent
Kchultess of Mr. (Jerry's society took tho girl
up to the society's rooms In Twonty-thlrd
street.
Pollco Captain Thompson spoko in prolso ot
the hack-man's work In rescuing tbo girl lrom
the Chinaman. It is possible tnnt If she had
once got within the walls of tho Mott street
tenement she would never have boon heard
1 lrom ncnln. That Is tin placo where Lee Khl
succeeded in keeping Suen leo imprisoned for
a year after ho had bought her for ftiuuiroiu
