A Severe Storm Passes Over the City.
A severe thunder storm, accompa
nied by a heavy ram, bail and high
wind, passed over tho city Sun
day afternoon, and caused some dam
age in and near the city. No damage
resulted from tho wind, butin places
tho hail riddled'the trees and did somo
damago to grain and gardens. The
hail stones were unusually largo, some
of them being as large as guinea eggs.
A bolt of lightning struck thu home
of J/rs. Fannie Kiley on John street
and set tire to the house. The build
ing waa soon in llamee, and although
the bremen responded promptly their
efforts could- not save it. Practically
all of the household furniture of Mrs.
Kiley and of a number of people who
rented rooms from her was destroyed.
The house was a large two-story build
ing of ten rooms. The loss is about
$4,000, with $3,000 insurance.
Keports from the sections of the
county over which the storm passed
indicate little damage,except here and
there where the hail injured the young
