Yesterday's rain and wind storm did con siderable damage in this city, as well as in the neighboring states. The farmers In the states were well satisfied to suffer a little ijamage in order to get the rain to benefit their crops. Farmers have been complaining about dry weather for several days. In some sections rain had fallen, but farmers complained that warm winds had followed the showers and the growing fruits and vegetables had been injured. In nearby counties hnil fell to such an ex tent that some of the crops were Injured. The tobacco and corn crops in Prince CJeorge's and Calvert counties, Maryland, it Is reported, were badly damaged by the hall. At Riverdale, in Prince George's county, a short distance above Hyattsville, the home of Mr. Charles Frederick was struck by lightning. Fire followed, and the structure was completely demolished. A trunk filled with wearing apparel was all that was saved. The barn on the farm of Mr. Carvil Beckett, in Prince George's county, about three miles from I.an ham station, was also struck by lightning and destroyed. In the barn were Mr. Beckett's hay crop and about thirty barrels of corn. Lightning's Havoc in City. In this city, as well as in the county, a number of tr?es **ere blown down or broken and several washouts on the roads were re ported. A few minutes before 5 o'clock lightning struck the tower on the Academy of Music and damaged the roof. Pieces of slate and jrick fell to the sidewalk. Pcliceman Samp son was standing on the sidewalk at the time and narrowly escapeel injury. Lightning also struck the cupola on the house of Mr. John W. Reed, 425 M street northeast. Fortunately the house did not burn. Fassengers on the Royal Blue train, due here at 3:55 o'clock, were badly fright ened while the train was moving between Jessup's and Relay. Lightning struck near the train and the report indicated that an explosion had occurred under the train. A number of passengers left their seats, but the train did not stop. So far as was re ported no damage was done. Mt. Vernon Cars Damaged. The storm did considerable damage to the motor cars of the Washington, Alexandria and Mt. Vernon railway, three of them being put out of commission by the light ning entering the cars and burning out the motors. One of the burned-out cars was at Mt. Vernon, another was at Alexandria and the third was about to enter the Long bridge, on its way to this city. Extra motors had to be sent out to have the disabled trains taken to the Four-Mile Run power house for repairs. The motor burned out at Mt. Vernon had just left the shops of the company, where it had been thoroughly overhauled. Lightning struck a large oak tree in the Boyee grounds. In Georgetown Heights, tearing several large limbs off. J. \V. Gregg had two very fine Jersey cows killed by lightning during the storm at his farm near Chillum, Md. COL. McKAY'S WILL. Has Not Been Filed Here?Gossip as to Its Contents. The will of the late Col. Nathaniel Mc Kay, concerning which there has been a great amount of comment and gossip the past week, had not been filed for probate in this city when the office of the register of wills closed at noon today. It was pre dicted that the document would be placed on file early this week, but the predictions have proved unfounded. Unusual interest seems to center in this Instrument, and all through the week the clerks in the office of the register of wills have been kept busy answering telephoni and personal inquiries as to whether or not the McKay will had been filed. The attorneys of the late Col. McKay left Wash ington in the early part of the week, and while it is stated that they are out of the city on business relating to matters othei than the McKay will, yet it is the opinion of the majority of the lawyers in the city that when the time comes it will be found that the attorneys have not been neglecting the Interests connected with the will during their absence. In fact It is thought that before the McKay lawyers return the much talked-of document will be placed on file with the register of wills in Guthrie, Okla. and that Inter a certified copy of the instru ment will be filed here. Many rumors are afloat as regards the provisions of Col. McKay's will, and from the diversity of opinion it seems that the terms of the instrument are purely a mat ter of conjecture with all excepting the>se directly concerned in the matter. One re port is that before his death Col. McKay deeded the bulk of his property to hi fourth and last wife, Mrs. Mabel Geyer McKay, and that the remainder of his estate, with the exception of a bequest to his confidential secretary, Samuel Tatum Is to go to his two daughters. Mrs. Eliza beth L. Weieleshelm of St. Davids, Pa and Mrs. II. A. Kneisly of Guthrie, Okla. Another rumor current is to the effect that the two daughters of Col. McKay In tend to join with Mrs. Jennie Pope Mc Kay should she attempt to break the will In view of the prospect of a contest by Mrs. Jennie Pope McKay on the grounds that Col. McKay was not legally divorced from lier, it is thought most likely tha the will is to be tl 1 e-tl for probate in Okla homa, as such action, it is said, will add strength to Col. McKay's claim of residence in that territory, upon which the legalit of the divorce from his third wife is said to hinge. It is probable that the public will be In a position to know more definitely as to the terms of the will, and the likelihood of a suit against the estate by the middle of next week. Deaths in the District. The following deaths were reported at the health office during the last twenty-four hours ending at noon today: Elizabeth G. Gilbert, 78 years; Charles II Smith, 75 years; Rosa Knorr, 30 years; Miss Loraine Abbott, 2!> years; Rosa M.

Moore, a brother the deceased, protesting against admitting the Instrument to probate. Tho prut-st al leges that the testatrix was '?? ?, r!e making a valid contract, because of her mental condition, and also that the will was executed under the stress of undue In fluence.
