lightning. It was estimated Tuesday
that it would take several days, pos
sible until the last of the week, to re
pair damage to poles and lines be
fore full service could be resumed.
Bluffton’s Main street boulevard
lighting system felt the fury of the
gale Monday night when the wind
tore off the large glass globe atop a
metal standard in front of the town
hall about 9:30 o’clock and sent it
crashing to the pavement.
The blinding rain which accompan
ied the onslaught of the storm on
Monday afternoon made driving ex
tremely hazardous, overflowed gutters
and sent the temperature down 20 de
grees a half-hour. A quarter-inch
of rain fell in 10 minutes during the
height of the storm. Streets here
were littered with limbs of trees and
debris of the storm.
Barn Loss Heavy
Loss of the barn and contents on
the Bierer farm reported to have been
heavy, is believed to be covered by
insurance. Especially difficult to re
place at this time will be the large
amount of machinery which was burn
ed.
Lightning struck the bam at the
height of the storm Monday afternon
at 4 o’clock and dames consumed both
barn and milk house. The farm is
one mile north and a mile west of
Mt. Cory.
Besides the 11 head of cattle lost
in the fire the machinery destroyed
included two tractors, plows, a manure
spreader, grain drill, corn binder,
nearly 600 bushels of corn, a quantity
of hay and fertilizer. Only one cow
and her day old calf were saved.
Walter Radebaugh, a neighbor
farmer first saw the fire and gave the
alarm to Herman, tenant on the place.
The Mt. Cory fire department was
called and fought the fire to prevent
it spreading.
CARD OF THANKS
We wish to thank the Builders
class of the Methodist church for
the beautiful gift presented to our
baby, Rae Ann.
