During the thunder storm of Thursday evening the lightning played queer pranks with the pump house telephone. It injured it in such a manner that it will not work only one way and the night pumper is grieving himself to death because he cannot ring central at unearthly hours be tween midnight and daylight to see the moon rise. One night he unavailingly rang a cow bell in front of the transmitter for a half an hour, The neighborhood song sters are now singing, “cow bells faintly tinkling in the pump house instead of on the lea,” The night hawk is a queer genious, any way he attended his first political primary last spring and pronounced it a cross between a Mexican Fandango and an Indian war dance.
