und struck a telephone wire near tho
center of tho town. When tho bolt

two blocks distant
Immediately following the descent of
this bolt enmo a perfect shower of balls
of live about the Biza of walnuts. This
tain of lip- was general over tbo town
and continued for probably ton minutes
The balls resembled molten iron and
spattered when they oame in contact
with the earth.
Several roofs of houses on which the
balls fell werf; ignited, but tho flames
wero extinguished by rum, which be?
gan to fall boavlly. Probably &'? peo?
ple were severely shocked during the
progress of tho electric rain. Whilo tho
balls of lire were falling a strong smell
of sulphur per vorteil the atmosphere. The
places where the halls struck look as if
iron had recently been fused there.
The greatest urror prevailed during
tho rain of liro. Many peoplo thought
