Sorely Misused

Rev. Se. E. Ryan, presiding elder of this district in the Methodist church, had a narrow escape from death by lightning the other night. He had been sleeping in the study of the Oakes church and had just left it to take the train, and had not yet reached the depot, when the lightning ran down the spire into the study, demolishing things generally.
