Frank Stevenson, a colored youth, j of Williamsport, went fishing one day jast week with a companion, who, \ upon the approach of a thunder storm, went home, leaving Stevenson alone. When Stevenson did not re. turn in the evening a search was in- j stituted and kept up during the night. The folowing morning he was found dead standing upright in a hollow tree, in which he had doubtless taken refuge from the storm. A coroner's j jury was summoned and decided that he was killed by lightning, as no signs of violence were visible and every. \ thing indicated that during the severe storm a flash of lightning had struck near the tree, and he had been killed by the shock.

All the flesh of the calf of the leg was stripped from the bone and completely ground up. The wound is severe, painful and danger ous.? Marti nsburg Independent. A Strange Tail. Mr. Ueo. Cross is the proud possessor of a valuable thorough-bred llolstein cow who was likewise imbued with the idea of her importance which caused her to think that there should be no flies on her. So one day while keeping this resolution she switched her tail so violently that coming in contact with a barbed wire fence it was caught and broken off short; and thereby hangs the tale. This cow which had previously delighted her owner by giving five gallons of excellent milk daily, now only pro duces a single gallon. Mr. Cross is much worried over the accident ami is quite at loss to know what can take ' theplace of an appendage of such evi. importance. Shepherd College.
