Trees and wires were blown down in a score of places through the country and the amount of the damage is large. As he was playing with some boy friends during the storm, Carl, the 3 0-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. George Keiser, residing in West Lou ther street.

The boy's hand came in contact with the wire from which the insulation had been striped by the short circuit and the member was partly burned away. In spite of the efforts of several of the town's best physicians he died without gaining consciousness. His parents and a sis ter survive. Other minor shocks are reported as the result of falling electric wires crossing telephone cabies.

The girls employed in the factory, were in a panic after the big tank had splintered through the building and the water drenching the interior. None of them, however, was seriously injured. The storm prostrated telegraph and telephone wires and trees were blown down in all directions. Several per sons were more or less injured in at tempt to use telephone lines which had been blown across heavily charged electric wires. MARTIN STEINMETZ.
