The cloud in the west and northwest was inky bl.uk and M hen sllhoutted by the bright Hashes of lightning, had the appearance of being composed of dnn i got'ons elements. The storm was slow : In its approach, but once here It was furious for a lime.

This Hag pole Is of wood, nut it prov j ed a magnet to the lightning, pointing, as it does straight skyward. The boil which struck the pule was followed by .1 deaf. Ing clap of thunder. Which with tue crashing .>f tho pole, made a loud noise. Not only the occupants of the Citizens* Hank building, but all the people on that block of Main street; were frightened. The pole was split for some distance and tin- current, passing down it, burned out the lights and the telephones .111 th<* seventh tloor of the building.
