Struck By Lightning
John Ericson, a farmer whose farm lies just north of the Chase farm, was struck by lightning during the storm of yesterday, and is one of the few who lives to tell about it. He was sitting on the bed when the bolt struck him, and it seemed to strike on the thigh and pass in a direct line through his body. The thigh was blistered, and he suffered much pain internally. A doctor was sent for last night to go to the farm and attend him.
