portion of the severe storm when hail
stones as largo us marbles, were de

and in its Big-lag course the bolt
struck the uppermost pirt of it.
John Mitchell, tiio foreman, rushed
up the stairs to And out what damage
was done. On entering the first head
house he heard groins that led him

he found Swingle struggling on his
hands un l knees to rise to his feet.aud
directly across the building Stiup was

while almost at hi side aud motionless

Dr. Davidson, of Bsnton Center, read
a paper entitled "Forty Years Prac

ments of the author r fleeted rather
severely upon the medical profession,

of an interesting nature and command

Dr. (J. D. Murray also read a care

Property Owners Protested and Mayor
Connell Has Directed That It
Most Be Made Passable.
Yesterday there was a merry four!
cornered tight with the Economy
Stents Heat and Power company,
wnich Is layiiiLt steam pipes in the
streets, Peter Mullen, the contractor
doing tin work, Street Commissioner
Kirst) and well to do residents whoso
stables in Moir court have been block
aded by the work In progress as the iu
I en ste .1 parties. It is a mixed up af
fair, but unless tho passage of horses,
carriages and cows to and from the
stables is made possible before this
afternoon, the affair will incur diffi
culties for someone.
The residents started the ball by
making things lively for tho stroet
commissioner; be In turn made it lively
tor the contractor; the contractor in
turn unsuccessfully tried to msko it
lively tor the company. Mayor Con
nell was drawn into the fuss toward
evening and, like the Kilkenny man
who hit a head wherever he saw one,
he proposes to make it livedy for all
concerned except tho residents, unless
the tangle is straightened forthwith.
Tho difficulty is humorous aud yet
serious. The residents' position in the
matter is excusable; since Monday
afternoon they havo been unable to
get either horses or carriages from the
stablts, and two cows have sur
vived on parings, etc., and been pre
vented from supplying the tables with
thick Juue-gniss milk. Some blamed
the street commissioner for allowing
such a state of all drs to exist, others
blamed Contractor Mullen and the rest
placed the responsibility upon the
Economy company.
Work was begun about three weeks
ago iu extending the pipes from the
plant on J fferson nvonue, botweon
Myrtle nnd Ash streets, under a per
mit issued by Street Commissioner
Kirst, which provided that in tho al
leys the trench should leave enough
space for the passage of vehicles. The
peculiar details of laying steam pipes
with non-heat conducting material
makes tne work necessarily slow, No
difficulties wore met until Moir court
was reached, when tho contractor ex
cavated all tho way from Gibson strdbt
to l'iue street. Tho treuch is about
three or four days ahead of the pipe
laying, which lias only been completed
about 120 feet from Gibson street.
Mayor Connell yesterday gave his
hut to Street Commissioner Kirst that
the contractor of the company must
today lay the pipes and fill the treuch,
or iu the same manner make Moir court
Now the residents are holding their
breath and wondering if the tangle
will unsnarl.
